Yep, 2nd shoulder surgery.  At least I get 2 more weeks off of work to stay home and pla.....er heal

I tried the first 3 SP levels.  Really nice.  I keep wanting to control the gun view with my right stick, though, so I wish there was an option for that (although I didn't look, so maybe it's there).

Otherwise, I see this as an "in short bursts" kind of game.  Played for long stretches, it feels like there's not enough overall variety.  However, there is a lot to do while you play.  Place defenses, upgrade, take over defenses, go for the rations tickets, fly a plane.  There's probably more I haven't seen.

To me, the style is what sets this game out, though.  It just looks really cool.

Yes you can invert and switch how the gun view controls work in the full version options menu.  Just pick one of the many southpaw options, which is what I did.

Very well done game.  Hark and I even played some 1 vs 1 (he kicked my ass) and the game is suprisingly deep for a tower defense type game.  Also there some sort of metagame world map that can be played via Facebook.

If Jaime and I pick it up as well, I understand you can play up to four players online.  Perhaps Casa de PeteRock can take on the United States Marine Kato.   ninja2

That would be pretty awesome.  Going to go ahead and try to firgure the game out, since I haven't tried playing the game since I bought it.

How are things going in Aion now?

Forgot how deep this MMO is compared to some.  Hark and I are pretty much trying to re-learn the game again before we do some PVP rifting, or going to the Abyss.  Noticed a lot less bots, but Auction house prices seem to be pretty high.  Overall, I missed Aion and will be looking to playing some more.

Played for the first time in months last night.  Jumped into a game with Nonnahob, RomyBolognaPony, and Calvin.  I didn't bother to turn my mic on as rarely do I have much to say outside of cursing and I just wasn't up for much conversation following hours of chem homework and more home renovations.  I just needed a brief distraction/break for a bit and figured MW2 was as good an option as any.  I was surprised to hear Calvin ask who I was as I was sure we've played MP games in the past (Halo 3, maybe Gears of War). 

I didn't really do anything noteworthy, playing a little below a 1:1 kill/death ratio, but I attribute that to not having played a videogame outside of 1 vs. 100 for the past few months.  The main issue I ran into was wondering what guns folks were using.  I was killed by either Nonnahob or Romy (can't remember which) when I was moved to the opposing team and each time I watched the killcam I saw what appeared to be no recoil on their weapon whatsoever.  I have yet to find a weapon that doesn't have recoil, and each time I watched the camera it looked like their red dot sight stayed pretty steady.  As my thumbstick aiming isn't always steady, I could really use a weapon with little to no recoil.  LMGs are out for me as I can't keep them steady, I'm not a sniper rifle fan, and SMGs still seem to have quite a bit of recoil.  Only the M4 and the M16 work out best for me. 

I'm not sure what gun it was, but I certainly want one. 

Probably the ACR Assault Rifle Pete

Wash that down with some Chocolate Rain.

Woe is me I played Vampire Rain

Then style that AZN hair helmet with White Rain.

Then keep that style until you can wash it out in the November Rain.

It's a nice enough game, mods or not, but not using the real Earth destroys the mood IMHO. 

Though it didn't ruin the game, I agree that it would have been a great improvement if they had just used the real earth.  Is Earth copyrighted or something?  Does someone have the patent on the planet Earth?

that's what I was wondering as well. I'm suprised that there isn't an Earth mod out there for this game

Getting AvP for 360

Dood. It got a 5.75 in GI

Why would I care what GI thinks of a game?  I played the demo and enjoyed the game.  I hope enough people follow your line of thought and don't play it though, might make the in-game community a bit better slywink

Well, the bar will have been set pretty low if you're there so... icon_cool
In for AvP2 for 360.  Guess I'll be slumming it with Harkonis..... since the bar is set so low, right ATB?

played in two excellent pick-up groups tonight. The team leader of the 2nd group actually awarded his teammates with loot at the end of the deep space encounter. I want to know how to do that cause I want to be able to reward good team play. Hopefully that will catch on.

Anyone know how to do this?

Yes just press the "O" key which will bring up your social tab, select your team options and the loot options are there to choose

I liked the demo but I really hope they add a mute option in the full version or I'll have to play without a headset.  Seems like the demo draws the worst crowd.

Which is why I almost always turn on the option to only hear people from my friends list.  Anyways, I thought the game was great (after I learned the controls for each species)
