1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    I'm not sure I am going to bother with the DLC anyway.

    Same. I'm probably going to wait and see how much I play this.

    On the one hand, Battlefield 3 and Skyrim will mean that I probably play it less around the launch period and more later on (when the first DLC usually drops). On the other, I can see Mass Effect 3 stealing all of my time around that period.

    (first world problems)

    I've never managed to get in to the Gears multi, although I hear it's much improved in the new one. Nevertheless, I'm not a gold member any more.

    So you're getting MW3 for the single player?

    I buy my FPS's on PC these days. My friends mostly play on PS3 but they don't actually play a great deal, mainly preferring stuff like FIFA.

    Played MW1 on 360 though. Was briefly in the top 100 worldwide as I got the game a few days before official release.

    Nicely done. A couple of my friends made the top 10 on FFA in the first week on Blops.

    I was in the top 10,000 at one time for WaW, back in my prime.

    I've never really come close to anything. Top 100,000 on one of them maybe.

    I've I ever actually played zombies online enough, I'd pretty sitting at a pretty decent seat myself I'm sure.

    The COD that I put most time into was 4. Must be approaching 30 days on that. The only problem is that I was terrible to begin with. I was hanging around the 0.6 k/d for ages. It was the first FPS that I ever played online, so that could be one reason for it.

    I'd just like to clarify, I was top 100 because there probably weren't 100 people on the leaderboards at the time, not because of skill!

    I'd played Halo 3 online, but it's completely different I guess. CoD4 was the first FPS I really got into online. I think WaW was the game I put the most time into though. I've still yet to reach final prestige on a CoD game though. I think I've only played Black Ops for about 10 days in total, compared to MW2s 15 days.

    I think I'm on about 4 days for Blops. I reached 55 and 10th prestige on 4 legit. One of my friends found himself in a hacked lobby for MW2 about six months ago and invited me, so I'm now top level and prestige on that too, although it was obviously cheating.

    It was when I was in Singapore, where a lot of the retail discs are made. Usually they are shipped to local stores and are sold as they arrive (although this is less common nowadays).

    The reason it was so early was because it cuts out the travel time to the market where the game is going to be sold. I.e., games in America would need to arrive at retailers usually a day or two before release, which means they would have to leave Singapore about a week before that.

    I liked Halo 3 online. I didn't really play that much though, maybe like 20 hours. I didn't honestly realise how much people played the same game online until months after CoD4 was out and I realised just how long it took to prestige once, yet alone 10 times.

    The problem is, with games like Gears in particular, that it's practically impossible to be good unless you pump hours into it. COD is a game that you can kinda pick up and luck into a few kills because there's always bad players.

    Gears more so than anything else I'd say. Right now there's a ton of terrible players playing Gears 3, but generally after a few months the people that still play, have a pretty good handle on it.

    CoD always has asshats playing, which is what makes it so alluring to so many different types of players I guess.

    Yeah. I am a decent enough all-round video gamer, I'd say. I tried playing Gears online and it literally took me about five games to even get a kill. It's ruled by snipers now. Admittedly, this was the original.

    It's ruled by the assault rifles now...specifically the Retro Lancer, which is nearly as stupid as the sawed off :\

    I only play Execution in GoW3, but the retro lancer isn't really a problem from what I have seen. The sawed-off is OP, but more people use the gnasher anyways.

    The only way that I could get kills was to use the shotgun. :D

    It's not nearly as bad as it was in the beta, but if you happen to run into a team that uses it religiously it's pretty bad.

    That said, Gnasher>everything else.


    Soooo we haven't talked about MW3 in a while...

    You were in Singapore, and the only thing you could think of to do was play COD? O_O

    I'm under the assumption that he did, in fact, do more than that. :D

    Yeah...there's a reason I only played about 20 hours or so of it!

    What was the reason for your time in Singapore, if you don't mind me asking?

    Meanwhile, I tried a WaW zombies mod for realism mode. Anyone know what that is?

    No. Are you going to tell us, or do you not know either?

    My dad's job took him there. Well, has taken is more accurate as he's still there. He's an admiralty lawyer, and Singapore has lots of ships!
