Call Of Duty 4
it's been giving me a lot of trouble lately because i've been gaming more than usual, but i don't care. i'm studying like crazy and gaming and that's about it. i don't have much time for anything else and i don't want to. i'll ocassionally go out for a social thing or a family thing, but i just don't have the time i used to.
SO it's all about the call of duty right now. if it weren't for this game i don't know what i'd be playing. in fact i'd probably be on my 3rd go at mass effect. i still haven't even finished assasin's creed.
i got the new maps a while back and i finally went presteige. i was NOT interested in going preteige before, but for a while there i was actually starting to get bored with the game. going presteige wasn't as bad as it sounds. i mean, yeah you lose all your weapons but it's so much more fun than sitting there without a sense of accomplishment. that's the thing isn't it? that's why we play ranked games day in and day out.
i wish i had the time to play with every single one of my friends. i don't have the time to run my own rooms anymore so i'm always shuttling around between this room and that room; these friends and those friends. but at least no one expects all that much from me anymore. it's not as much pressure to switch rooms all of a sudden so i find it a lot easier to jump on for a few games with some old friends and then to the next with some new.
team deathmatch (tdm) (the giant one with domination and deathmatch) is a lot of fun to play with my gtp friends. it's a bit too nuts for me and very fast paced. the 16 player rooms fill up fast, the lag can be pretty bad and in those rooms everything goes. there's no martyrdom courtesy that's expected in hardcore (hc). and no one cares that they're constant fragging after every single spawn is RETARDED and killing the game.
this is why i prefer hardcore over team deathmatch games. rigid's friends are really nice people and i'd rather hang out with my husband. some of his friends are idiots, but i still like them. they're idiots much like me so it works out well. also these rooms are much more quiet than tdm making it much easier for me to hear what's going on in the game. problem is hc can be a lot more difficult to play.
there's no reticle, you're exptected not to use martyrdom as a courtesy to fellow gamers and fraggin or nube tubing is simply not the done thing. unless you're very proficient at it. team killing (tk) is simply unacceptable. not only will you get the third degree from your team mates, but the respawn penalties are horrible not to mention your score drops each tk. (i think lol)
still, hc rooms are my favorite rooms at the moment and it's pretty much all i'll play. because of this i usually dominate in regular tdm rooms, but lately because my wrists hurt so bad and i refuse to take any medication for it i've been sucking ass. big hairy wet ass... plus i HATE domination.
headquarters, domination and that other one where you have to do a bomb thing... whatever. can't stand those games. too much running. in the beginning it was so much fun. ELIMINATION! that's the bomb thingies name. it's a fun match, but it got boring after a while and so did all the others.
now we're just waiting for more maps! love china town, creek is annoying and i've never seen that little one. not once!
OH and this was the very first online game i've ever played with a co-worker! Fatmonster001 is my friend at my firm and it's been so much fun gaming with him. a little embarassing because my cod4 friends can be abrasive and rather dirty. i'm usually about as professional at work as i can muster and i find it a little difficult to share my filthy underground gaming life with the real world.
still, it's so much fun!
