I'll be off Live for close to 2 weeks. I actually think it will be kind of good for me as CoD has been getting me kind of riled up. Although I will have my PSP (will probably leave the DS behind) and apparently the nieces and nephew will be getting a Wii for Christmas during our trip.

I actually played a game on Castle in FFA where nobody glitched... saywhat

I played opposite Hark on Castle last night - he started out 5-0 or something and since no one had seen him, the guys on my team assumed he was glitching. I didn't think he would glitch, and it turned out he was just picking people off from the roof.

A guy on my team used a different glitch that allowed him to float about 20 feet off the ground in clear sight. It didn't seem all that useful.

Arkon wins.  He's also apparently a walking disaster area, and we should all probably stay well away from him.

While I read that, I kept thinking, "oh yeah, he's a Terminator." I mean, the only thing missing was, "this one time, I was sitting in my car and it blew up. I went to the doctor and they pulled the gear shift out of my chest and gave me some stitches and put bandages on my burns."

I don't like pain. Pain bad. I have never broken a bone or been in any bad accidents or had any really bad medical ailments. So I probably have a very low threshold for pain. Probably the worst pain I can remember was kind of recently where I had a still unidentified pain in my side/back for most of a night while also being badly constipated. I would kind of alternate between sitting on the toilet and then curling up in a ball on the bathroom floor. Not really knowing what was going on probably added a fear element to it, which made the pain worse. But I didn't take anything other than advil for it and it probably didn't hurt anywhere near like the stories above. I definitely didn't have to pack gauze up my butt.

(and if you are wondering, I did go to the doctor afterwards and she didn't have an explanation other than maybe an air bubble in one of my muscles that resolved itself.)

I hadn't watched any of the episodes yet, so I deleted the whole season off my tivo. Maybe I will check it out during the summer, although these days I have felt more like playing games than watching tv, and I've got enough Law & Orders to keep me busy without needing new series smile

My time will be limited tonight, again. I'll probably only be on from about 5:00-6:30 est or so.

Apologies for looking to hop into your game with Teggy on Sunday and then logging off shortly after.  I was trying to get some game time in before my grandmother woke up and came downstairs but just as I was about to play in a game she came down for a cup of tea.  I couldn't bring myself to say, "Sit down and shut up, Nanny, I need to do some killin'." 

I also have Call-of-Duty-induced tourette's, and I worried about what might inadvertantly come out of my mouth while my grandmother was listening.   ninja

Isn't this the grandma who's into violence? Maybe she'd like to play too.

In order to kill them, wouldn't we first need to know who they are?

Well, I was mostly venting, since with 150K-200K people on, it didn't seem likely you would actually run into them. But if you must know, it was "ApaThyEulogy", "CrptoSMILEY", "DA 1300FINATER", "duowingtwo" and "lime disease yo". I don't remember the clan tag.

Something I noticed these guys would do a lot on maps like hangar, outskirts or castle is camp places that would allow them coverage of a large area of the map, so if someone came looking they'd probably wind up in someone's line of sight. But they didn't camp exclusively and were just really good at getting the drop on you. I was having particular trouble yesterday with my aiming. I'm not really sure why on some days I'll often bring my gun up at someone's feet or to their right and other days I'll be right on their head or chest.

I had an awful session yesterday. I jumped into a hctd room that had 5 guys from a clan that were being jerks. After every match they'd go on about how it was too easy and that we should all leave their room. Being a principled sort, I stayed in anticipating the humbling experience they'd have when a group of randoms beat them. Except we kept losing, over and over and they kept jawing. Finally I left, my k/d down to .65. The all used second chance and kept healing each other, which made it doubly annoying.

So if you see those guys, kill them for me.

I'm not sure why they are calling them "new". They've appeared on a lot of Red Sox stuff, like BP hats. They have also often mowed them into the field.

EDIT: I see, they are just saying the specific use of the socks alone (without words around it) as a logo is new. Basically they just unveiled some new road jerseys, one alternate which includes the socks on the cap. And they will use the socks alone as a logo more often.

Well I had my two best games ever last night, going 20+ kills and 6-7 deaths.  I Love me that MG42!!!

I spectated enough of your kills last night to come to the conclusion that you do best with weapons that require little to no aiming. slywink  Was it you or Hadron that shot an entire friendly fire MG clip at me on the second floor of Hangar and only nicked me once?

In any case, you may be interested in looking into using the Overkill perk to get a four rifle grenade loadout. smile 

Hehehe that was Hadron.  I can't aim for shit though, that's the truth.  This gun is heaven-sent!

Wait until you get the FG (assuming you don't already). I put steady aim and stopping power and and just shoot from the hip, dragging it across in a quick burst. It seems to almost magically lock on. It needs to be reloaded more often, but you feel more agile carrying it and it has better sights (and you can get a sniper scope for it, which is crazy).

Many have commented on my ability to miss a target. I should have a lot more TKs. I'll often turn a corner and come face to face with a teammate before I realize it and squeeze off a few rounds, and somehow miss them.

Pug is too modest. In an early round on Dome it was 6 on 1 for a while, Pug being the one. We only barely beat his team.

As I recall it, we lost that round by 60.  That was because pug is such a ninja that it took us almost a full minute to track him down after all his teammates bailed and that went on for about three minutes before more targets started to drop in.  Heck, there are 12 people listed on his team for that match.

Wow, you're right.

It's ugly today in Massachusetts and I was so so close to calling in sick.  Ah well.  I also want to take another stab at bringing down your Vega soon now that I've read up a bit more on my characters' moves.  I've only got two more weeks left of being able to blame the 360 controller for my ineptitude.

Last night in CoD was a lot of fun.  We had a full squad but with none of our usual ringers; it was like being in B-Company.  While we didn't have any of the runaway wins we often get with Hark and Hellspawn on the team, I think we did win more often than we lost.

Oh except for tank maps: we got some runaway wins there because we're such tank whores.  Those were great.

Yeah - I've never timed it exactly, but they do stay for 15 seconds or so.

Hey, chopping zombies in half with giant saw blades is FUN.

Yes it is, but didn't you have to babysit your sawblades at some points in the map, making sure you didn't shoot them out of reach or having to backtrack to rearm?  I just went nuts and had fun if there happened to be sawblades around and didn't worry about losing them, because I could always just break out my shotgun. slywink

With the exception of the co-op achievements, WaW doesn't have any online achievements. CoD4 had none. It's one of the things that kind of annoys me about those games because I have put in so much MP time. smile

7476  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] 1 year, 10,000 Gamerscore - an adventure on: December 10, 2008, 06:01:09 PM
So, I got my 360 between xmas and new year's last year and a year later now stand at 9550 Gamerscore. I would not describe myself as an "achievement whore" but I will occasionally go out of my way for some points. Since I'll be away for the holidays, I have about 2 weeks to get 450 points, which means I may have to pry myself away from COD5 and work on some of my backlog. We'll see, I may fall short. But I thought it would fun to go back and look at some of the achievements I got this year and whether or not they were worth it.

Tomb Raider Legend - Collect 5 Bronze Rewards (10)
I believe this is the first achievement I ever...achieved. I enjoyed this game quite a bit and wound up playing through it basically twice, once on normal and once on hard. But not because I had gone back to get the achievement - about 3/4s through the game my save got corrupted and I had to completely start over, and since the combat wasn't very hard, I decided to up the difficulty. The achievements I didn't get were mostly time trials, because I don't have the patience for that.

Feeding Frenzy - Andy Champion (10)
I got this game free with my console. I can't believe they are making a sequel. It seemed kind of like one of those in-browser flash games. I did get this achievement just because I wanted to have some return for wasting my time.

Crackdown - High Flyer (10) and Base Jumper (10)
Getting to the top of the Agency tower is a really fun thing to do, and I might not have attempted it if not for the achievement. But getting to jump off? Even better.

Call of Duty 2 - Veteran of Stalingrad '42 (60)
This is where I found out that playing Call of Duty on veteran just isn't fun. 60 points is a really nice reward, but just not worth it. I hate that they make so many of the points in CoD games for beating the game on veteran.

Kameo - Beaten Thorn (100)
I really didn't like Kameo, which surprised me, because it is definitely up my alley. But the game pretty much bored me to tears when it wasn't making me frustrated. You get 600 points for just beating the game, but I had no interest at all in going back for any other, most of which required you to replay the missions really, really well.

The Orange Box - Zombie Chopper (25) and The One Free Bullet (40)
A bit of a philosophical argument here - does knowing about achievements change the game experience? I attempted both of these achievements (which require you to get through parts of the games using only limited weaponry) on my first run-through. So I have never used a shotgun in Ravenholm. Although I will play it again at some point. Notably missing from my list is Keep off the Sand (20) which I attempted numerous times but couldn't manage. I doubt I will ever do Little Rocket Man (30) because it just doesn't seem like much fun.

Tomb Raider Anniversary - Medium Game (25) NOT
The game glitched and didn't give me this achievement or the one for finishing on easy even thought I completed the game  icon_evil

GTAIV - You Got the Message (20)
This is the one for getting all the stolen cars.  It just reminds me of how much time I spent traveling all around Liberty City.

Battlefield: Bad Company - Get the Dog! (20)
Anyone who played BC with me knows how much of an idiot I made of myself trying to get dog tags. This is the most Gamerscore I have for a single game, 900 out of 1000.

Too Human - Valkyrie's Folly (5)
This is the achievement for dying 100 times. I did it in one playthrough. Yeah, fun game  Roll Eyes

and similarly...

Call of Duty: World at War - Purple Heart (5)
You get this for dying 20 times on a single level, and I did it on the very first level I played. (It was on hardened, at least)

It's been a fun ride to (almost) 10K. We'll see if can get to 20K next year...
