Battle stress can make ANY man do almost anything. I wouldn't be surprised if it did actually happen.
The victors tend to paint history the way they want, often leaving out the horrors they committed.

In Vietnam we used to shoot body parts off VC while the others watched and threw them out of choppers as part of interrogation.

The Vietcong would put human excrement in the Punji sticks to help create infections in wounds.

All through history there are accounts of man doing the most unspeakable things to each other. Nothing would surprise me.

I support our troops 100% and they definitely don't get paid enough for their sacrifice. In war there is a great deal of hypocrisy, however.



Hatred for the enemy can/will seduce you to do things, you never though yourself capable of.

Hey guys I'll be shelving BCB2 for a bit, so if I'm online and won't accept a BC2 invite, don't be offended..... it's not you, it's me  slywink

I still love the game, and I'll be back later to play with the GT regulars. Let me just say that BCB2 has incredibly realistic sound  ninja

Two knife hits from the front and no invincibility while leaping across 15' of space would balance the knife fine.  Of course from what I've seem of Infinity Ward with this game I doubt anything of the sort will happen.

I played the hell out of this game and got my money's worth x100.  However, near the end I stopped having fun. 
2287  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: March 16, 2010, 08:00:52 PM
Yeah, I've started reporting people for griefing their own team (even though it probably does nothing)

If only it wasn't such a pain in the ass to get all our friends into a single game, it would'nt be that bad.

Still loving the game though  ninja

That was badass when they kicked the guy tied to the chair out of the room!

This looks good but I'm not sure how much interest I have in another war game.

When are they gonna let us play as the Taliban? That should change up the gameplay a bit.

I think Red Faction: Guerilla is the closest thing you're going to get for now

Spoiler for Hiden:
Hope. Young, angsty, stupid and cowardly. If I was Snow or Lightning, I would have backhanded him everytime he opened his dumbass mouth

how can you be in chapter 10 and still think that about Hope? You're insane or you completely missed a vital awesome chapter.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I know he "mans" up, but it's just his earlier dialogue and actions during the beginning that turned me off to him as a character.

WTH I accidentally brought a building down on some teammates and my skill level was reduced to 0, because of my "recent play" according to the game.  Boo!  At least I have no idea wtf skill level even stands for in this game.

Eh I wouldn't worry about that Leo, i think it will correct itself.....that was pretty funny by the way.  Good games all around tonight, running with the GT crew is the best  thumbsup

Looking forward to the Laguna Presa Rush mode, that map is cool on Conquest.

Yep, can't wait for that.  We played against a really terrible team for a while last night (with the exception of Proner and his brother 'Fumble who were carrying the whole team).  I really enjoy the huge maps of conquest, some of them are really vehicle oriented and I'm happy to say some of them aren't.

This is great, but it requires a set-up.

This guy named Guy went in to the BBC for a job interview to be a supply manager.  Turns out the news was waiting on another guy named Guy to give expert opinion on the whole Apple, Inc vs Apple Corps law suit.  A woman came into the waiting room and called for Guy.  The first guy went with her.  He was then interviewed on camera about the Beatles and iPods.  He went along with it, thinking it was part of the interview process for supply manager.

His expression on hearing the reporter announce the wrong name is priceless.

I guess the guy has become a bit of a hero in the UK for going with the flow.

Loved it.  Did "Guy" get the job? I was impressed how he handled himself during the interview.

Still loving the game, but now I wish there was an option to be able to choose to not be revived.  

I appreciate being rezzed, but please do not revive me when I'm in the kill zone.

Which Robin would fit into the Arkham Asylum game timeframe?

Probably one that gets captured and needs saving.  But seriously, even though I dislike Robin, I have faith in RockSteady to do him/her justice.

I only have a few dogtags, and those are mostly GT people  ninja

I almost never go for the knife kill unless I have to, opting to just use my pistol or main weapon.

which is a little ironic since I actually use my combat knife quite a bit in RL combat

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.

Quote from: PeteRock on February 24, 2010, 06:08:20 PM

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
