There’s a free Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 weekend running on Steam right now. I downloaded and tried it earlier this evening but judging by what I saw I think they must have sent me the original Modern Warfare by mistake.
An FPS for $8 you say? A COD clone? It’s out on PSN today and the trailer above looks good. I’m sure reviews will flood in shortly. (via)
So you think your PC is so amazing that the graphics are near realistic? You ain’t seen nothing yet!
Looks like they haven’t improved the spawn system in COD 15 either. Oh well. (via)
Black Ops Combat Training split screen can actually be fun! I figured out that the second player can change team so we’re both on the same side so myself and my brother had a ball against the enemy AI.
Getcrackin joined us for a few games too and as we were playing recruits he mowed them down!
I’m sure recruit level difficulty is more difficult than it was when the game first came out. The enemy AI throw a lot less grenades now too. I didn’t need flak jacket at all!
Nice, Garnz uploaded an intro and gameplay video from Black Ops!
You played 7 hours straight? I miss those days! Years ago I was asked how I had so much time to spend developing free software and I shrugged. I just did. Of course I was living at home and had all the luxuries and none of the responsibilities of being a parent and home owner. About 18 years ago I stayed up the whole night on a Saturday night coding in assembler on my C64. I looked out the window and saw the sunshine hit the tops of the trees. I was wrecked that day I can tell you!
Eh? What’s that youngster? In my day we had cardboard boxes and we were glad of them!
Yes, yes, yes. All you super-duper lightning fast 360-noscope blah blah players are laughing right now but I got my highest killstreak in Black Ops in a game of TDM with some random players yesterday. 14 kills without dying!
Quite pleased with myself I can tell you!
I did narrate this video but it’s so rubbish it doesn’t deserve to see the light of day. Hope you enjoy the minor killing spree in this “no comment” version.
Oh, and Hanni! You’ll enjoy the very last clip!
There’s a huge update for Bad Company 2 coming on the PS3 this evening, including data and assets for Map Pack 7 and Vietnam so it’ll be big. It can’t come soon enough if you ask me!
Duck, Conor and myself had so much trouble getting into games of Black Ops we retired to Combat Training where admittedly we had lots of fun. One game we did get into was on launch where we were hammered like shiny new nails into plywood. Very quickly and with little apparent effort. Grrr.
Still, I had a game of TDM early in the evening on Havana and got the first kill with that grenade throw. Very satisfying!
