Actually, Frink, we talked about if you were there you would find a way to take the entire game off topic somehow. Find secret goals no one ever found in the game, and so on.

Mrs 5 and I had a ton of fun. We definately need to play more often!

In a PM, Fink actually told me he has a photo album filled with silly cat pics for every situation imaginable stashed away within his emergency zombie apocalypse survival bag.

Warbler's zombie apocalypse survival bag contains no weapons and a megaphone which he intends to use to communicate with the zombies, in hopes he will be able to reason with them and convince them that synthetic human flesh and organs made out of soy can be almost as tasty and nutritious as the real thing only without the guilt associated with eating someone's internal organs while they scream in agony.

Mmm... soy.

Nah, I'd be all for being devoured by zombies to get me out of this crapsack world.  As long as they make it fast.

There is no lingerie in space...

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

But it wouldn't be fast, it'd be slow. Oh so very sloooow. They'd start with your intestines. And they wouldn't be sharp clean cuts, they be dull jagged teeth ripping chunks out bit by bit. Oh no, "fast" is the last word you'd use to describe it.

Come on Gaff, you know if it happened you'd be out there with a shovel or something knocking heads off with glee. It wouldn't be a crapsack of a world anymore, it would suddenly be a FREAKIN' AWESOME WORLD TOTALLY WORTH LIVING IN!!!

I know I'm about 2 years behind the curve here- but I just finished COD4 and wow, that was a good game!  I had heard about how great the "atomic bomb"  part of the game was, but still I was unprepared for how that impacted me.  Also the finale was intense.

But the best part: one less game on my pile of shame.  And before L4D2 has arrived too!  So, I'm ahead for a couple days.

Hmm, just not that excited about Reach anymore.

 

Finally been getting into MW2, really liking it now. Been playing Spec Ops with my buddies, and just today I finally got into the team multiplayer stuff. I still suck at it and get guys complaining at me, but I am no longer (at least not always) at the very bottom of the score chart at the end.

 

Also, came home from work today and noticed that the DLC for Left 4 Dead 2 came out today! So I immediately, without hesitation wasted my money on it. Great fun. At the $7 mark it is a little pricey for what it is I guess, was hoping it would be a bit more substantial after being disappointed with Crash Course for the first L4D. This was a bit better value than that was, but still a slight disappointment, campaign definitely could have been longer and a few more new weapons would have been nice. The new addition of the "Mutation" game mode looks promising though, has the potential to make things really interesting.

And, I may just be dreaming, but I do believe they fixed the team member A.I. At release, your team members were so worthless the game was almost impossible to play by yourself even on normal. They would tend to stand around and watch you die, which was really annoying. But today while playing the new DLC campaign, it seemed that they were pretty quick to snap to my rescue anytime I found myself in a tight spot. Hope this is really the case and I am not only imagining things, as that was a huge hindrance to the game for anyone who didn't always want to play online.

Eh, I just can't get into COD. The real-world setting doesn't appeal to me much and It doesn't really feel like it has the signature balanced Gameplay that makes Halo great. That said, Iv'e only played it a few times, and I was just thrown into my friend's games, so idk.

YES! We must! I am up for it just about any time. I gave you my email through PM the other day, if you feel like playing and I am not online (which I rarely ever am), just send me an email.

Xhonzi just got the game, so I doubt he'll be into buying the DLC this soon, but we should get some non-DLC L4D2 games going too Xhonzi can break in his shiny new copy of the game.

I am not either, unfortunately... So yeah, I'd be totally up for a game.

8:30 will do perfectly, 005. Yeah, I won't tell you what happens. If you haven't read anything about it like I hadn't before playing it, there are a number of cool surprises to look forward to.

I probably can't make it... I'll ask my wife and all... but it's probably a no go.

She likes me to get these things on the calendar at least a few days in advance.

You're not included anyway! This event is exclusively for us elitist owners of the new DLC for L4D2, not for lame owners of just the boring old original version of the game. ;)

Nah, if you could make it, I am sure we would all be happy to play one of the original campaigns, or the 05s and I could move our playing of the DLC campaign up by an hour (took me 45 min to beat it the first time on normal by myself, 30 the second time with two friends) and be ready to play a regular campaign with you by 0830. But if you can't, there will always be next time.

Okay, 0730 works for me.

I got House of the Dead Overkill and Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars :)

Overkill is hilarious. If you have a Wii and don't mind a game with excessive profanity, then definitely check this one out.
