I may or may not download the maps.  Not sure how many forum folks will be actually playing COD4 again so I may get them under peer pressure.

Kato kato kato.... save yourself the stress and anxiety and just give in now.

Well, not only can I NOT buy the points atm, COD4 will not allow me to update the game....I get that error notice on the blade.

Guild leader of ITK is quitting??

Yeah  Doopri missed you this evening during our games of fun.  Don't worry Doopri, your #1 Guild Lieutenant Harkonis was on bringing honor to ITK.

I still plan to hop on now and then, and just like Hark said I've been playing a lot of Rainbox Six lately...

Well I got booted off xbox live about an hour ago, and support tells me that there is a server update going on for everybody today.......which is weird considering I still have 25 friends playing online atm.  Maybe its location based or something  icon_frown

Rented this today and so far I'm very much enjoying it.  I chose the hard difficulty and so far it has proven hard. smile

Yeah I think I should up my difficulty to hard, it might actually force me to fight smarter (using all the combos and moves).

All I can say is that I'm very surprised this game doesn't feature co-op play. Without that  there's no way this game would be more than a rental for me.

Yeah same here.  It looked like a co-op friendly game from the videos.  I picked up the case at the store last night, looked at the back, it said single player only so I put it back down.

heh heh sorry.  No-coop or any multiplayer options at all, it is strictly multiplayer. 

It's your standard hack & slash with light rpg/strategy elements (stealth elements as well) and with a slightly open world to run around in.  Weapons can be upgraded and augmented with different powers like fire,ice, or lightning for extra punch. Combos can be learned at different arena's, and dragon air support can be called upon when things get nasty.  I've only been in 1 massive battle and the slowdown is noticeable, but it wasn't that bad IMO.  Combat seems pretty easy on the normal difficulty.  Combat is extremely satisfying and the fatalities are very gruesome (sometimes the game goes into slow-motion when that happens).

Viking seems like a mishmash of games like Dynasty Warriors (an R-version)+ God(Thor) of War+ Conan. I suck at giving impressions, but if any of you guys have any more questions just hit me up on LIVE and I'll do my best to answer them.

Hark, Sky and the regulars from COD4 --  I'm guessing you guys will be all over multiplay tomorrow night?  biggrin

I will have it by then, except I'm going to have to learn how to play 1 handed. 




I could've gone forever without seeing that kato slywink  (on a completely unrelated note, I got my respec)

Damnit, tried playing COD4 and its not working....gonna try it while under the influence of Vicoden.

So is everyone jumping into multiplayer right away on day one or go through the single player stuff first?  I'm going to go singleplayer (as long as peer-pressure invites don't get to me).  I think its really cool that you can earn experience points and unlock gear in every game mode.
2469  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on: March 13, 2008, 06:14:11 PM
360 on release day.

Pt1: M-16 Backlash

So I had an up and down night last night- mostly up. After one particularly good match (33-7 or something on strike) a guy said something that totally riled me up.  He was a few prestige ranks above me- the really nice one with like the ruby crystal thing and he says, he says: "SensuousLettuce you're a total nerd for using the M-16 at your level."  I reply, "I'm sorry, What?" 

"Why do you use the M-16?"
"It's the best gun in the game"
"You should not use the M-16 when you're that rank because it takes no talent to use it."
"Uh.  Well why don't you show me how to use it if it takes no talent to use it." (in retrospect I meant to say "Well, everyone would use it if took no talent" but it was late and I was tired)
"I'm not saying it's a bad gun."
"It's the best gun in the game! Why use anything else?"
"Because it takes no skill to use it."
"So why don't you use it to show me how easy it is to use?"
"Duhhh duhhh duhhhh." (not his actual words)
"That'd be like telling the US military not to use the M1 Abrams cause it's the best tank in the world."
"Glarg a darg ding dang. I need my mommy to hug me."  <disconnects to go reconsider his life>
*

*<please note: text in italics did not actually happen as I was too tired to form the sentence before the next match began but I was thinking it. He disconnected shortly there after though>

So anyway, I have been noticing a backlash against the M-16 lately as the topic has come up on multiple occasions in the last few nights by higher ranked players.  What's your take fellow COD4ers?

In any case, I was insulted at the notion. Does this fool not realize I used the M-60 almost exclusively for 1.5 prestige runs!?  And the AK for my first 2.5 prestige runs!?  INSOLENT SON OF A COWARDLY VERMIN!

Part2: Wherein ATB considers Retirement

I think I'm going to hang up COD4 for a while once I hit 30k kills (I'm at 28k and some change) as it has become my negative go to game- in that I am playing nothing else when I would like to be because COD4 is too strong of a pull- and I'm good at it.  So I think at 30k I'm gonna give it to my wife for a month or so...or perhaps until the new maps comes out. Whichever timeframe is longest.

That is all.

Please let me know your thoughts on the M16 issue.

Total BS.  Those higher ranked players that you played with that must be seriously butt-hurt over being killed by an M16.  Just like you said if you were exclusively using the RPD, M60, or AK47 that night, they would have bitched and moaned about it also.  If they hate it so much, they can start a private match and hold hands together while shooting each other with pistols.  And if all else fails, hit the mute button and shoot them with the M16 over and over again.  It takes greater skill not to get shot by it.

Quote from: Turtle on March 13, 2008, 08:14:39 AM

I mean split screen with online or LAN multiplayer.

Basically, in CoD4 and a lot of games, you either play split screen, or single screen online multiplayer.  There's no mixing the two.  Very few games have done split screen online/LAN multiplayer.  The few that have are reasonably successful and can make mediocre games a whole lot of fun, especially if that involves some kind of co-op.

My gaming group has had a ton of fun playing Perfect Dark Zero with their split screen LAN with a team of 4-8 players vs an entire team of bots.

It just seems to me they're neglecting the whole same-room social aspect of consoles in their drive to promote online multiplayer going.

I know what you mean Turtle.  Remember the original xbox game Brute Force? Mediocre game when playing by yourself, but with 3 other friends it was fantastic.
