Aside

Somehow I’m known for “hacked lobbies” on Xbox 360. How the hell did that happen?

While playing Bad Company 2 with Dvotee, NorseValkyr1e and macmanx this evening a random guy from my friendslist joined our party and asked about hacked lobbies.Why would I get you into a hacked lobby? I hate the thought of them, and don’t even play Modern Warfare 2 any more!

I think I should clean up my XBL friends list. Only people I know and/or have played BC2 with survive the cull!

L4D2: Modern Warfare 2 Vacant Survival

“Nah, they’re probably just part of the background.”

This is a short clip from one of the first games myself and David played the other night in Left 4 Dead 2. The map is a remake of the Modern Warfare 2 map Vacant and any MW2 players will immediately recognise it.

Music is Scary Tale in Olde York by the Surf Sluts.

TyeWebb’s recording of a later campaign game in the Carnival with me and David. I think this map is paid-for DLC on Xbox but comes free with the game on PC and Mac. I presume it’s one of those “DLC we had to charge for on Xbox” that Valve complained about. Then how did DICE release Map Pack 7 for free then? Did they swallow the money Microsoft charged them to release that patch?

Hacked Modern Warfare 2 lobbies on PS3

Well, this sucks.

David stumbled into a hacked MW2 lobby on Playstation 3, not Xbox 360. When I first saw it I thought it might be connected to the recently announced discovery of the PS3 root keys. But I was giving the script kiddies too much credit. Even with the keys they wouldn’t have a clue what to do with them. They’ll have to wait until the smart kids write the tools that take advantage of the situation.

Meanwhile, I went searching for bushigans devils lobby v3 and found this video from October, well before any keys were discovered…

Silly, stupid cheaters.
