So Justin and I have been playing our separate Fallout: New Vegas games. We’ve been having all sorts of different outcomes. I tended to destroy the Legion crew that burned down Nipton, which in turn is hurting me as I am constantly…

Battlefield Playing History:
If you’ve been reading the comics then you should have noticed by now that Ian and I are Halo players, notÂ necessarilyÂ good Halo players, but Halo players all the same. Â However a few summers ago Dice released Battlefield 1943 as an Xbox 360 arcade and I picked it up on whim and had fun playing it for a couple of weeks. Â (I also got Ian to buy it and he had fun playing it as well) Â Do to unfortunate circumstances I lost my 360 and just about every video game I own so I was forced to restart my game collection this past winter. Â During the period of time I only had enough money to pick up one game so I was relegated to playing that game and whatever arcade games I had purchased. Â So I began to play Battlefield 1943 again and realized how much I loved that game. Â So I went and picked up Battlefield Bad Company 2 when I had enough money and I had a blast playing the game. Â I brought it over to Ian’s place and we played for a while and I got him to buy it as well. Â Battlefield is a great change of pace to Halo or perhaps its a modern time set game that plays most closely to Halo, I’m not sure, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun to play. Â So I couldn’t wait to try out Vietnam.
The game isÂ enormousÂ fun to play. Â The sound is excellent, the game looksÂ beautiful, and I love that everything is time specific. Â What I mean by time specific is that no guns can use optics of any kind except for sniper rifles. Â That means players will have to get used to the iron sights. Â The weapons themselves are time specific, only allowing you to use weapons that were used in that era, same goes for the vehicles you use as well. Â A nice addition is the soundtrack that Dice added for this game, which again is time specific. Â Getting in a vehicle and hearing CCRÂ blaringÂ is a fun addition to destroying theÂ enemies with tank shells to the dome.
Speaking of vehicles, theÂ helicoptersÂ in the game, from what I’ve seen, are not nearly as much of aÂ menaceÂ as they are in BFBC2. Â WhileÂ admittedlyÂ I’ve only been playing conquest on the 360 and I’ve only played a couple of hours, you can shoot down a chopper with a weaponÂ equippedÂ with magnum ammo. Â I watched Ian shoot down a Huey with a PPSH, a engineer weapon, and I think he was the only one shooting at it. Â Sure he used up all of his ammo but he took it down and it only took about a minute and 1/2 to do. Â *Warning I’m a terrible helicopter pilot* but theÂ helicoptersÂ seem easier to fly than in BFBC2, but again I’m no ace pilot.
It seems that in Vietnam the sensitivity is actually increased from BFBC2, so players might find the controls a little too responsive and might need to tone them down. Â I’ve heard some players on their youtube videos say the guns seem to feel a little different but I haven’t noticed that myself.
All in all the expansion was worth the 1200 Microsoft points I spent to buy it and if you like Battlefield owning thisÂ expansionÂ is a must.
If you haven’t seen or heard then “you must be blind as Anne Frank!” because the Playstion Network has been down for “maintenance” since early April…
Recently I was followed on Twitter by a cool, new, up and coming gaming website by the name of New Gamer Nation.
So Duke Nukem Forever got a lot of bad press.Â Lots of people expecting it to be the best thing since Sliced Bread 2: Revenge of the Jelly, when it totally wasn’t.Â A game that’s been in development for 12 years?!Â Really?Â You were really expecting some masterpiece?Â Duke Nukem 3D was never like that, the thing that was so awesome about DN3D was that you could interact with pretty much everything.Â Strippers that showed you their… tassles, pissin’ in the urinal, kickn’ ass and chewing bubble gum were just some of the things that made DN3D great, not the amazing story, gameplay, or technical triumph.Â And I would have to say that Duke Nukem Forever does the same exact thing.Â It’s an entertaining game.Â A lot of reviews I read seemed to be very highbrow, as if Duke’s humor was below them.Â Get over it!Â I’m not trying to say that it was such an amazing gaming experience, nope, just saying that if you took it for what it was, it was pretty entertaining.Â Maybe that nostalgia has worn off, if so, I’m sorry you grew up.Â But me, I’ll take that immature humor anytime!
So me and Justin were playing some firefight, and I managed to zap an Elite in the nuts with the laser.Â I made some comment about how I should have gotten an achievement called “Precision Comedy” and voilÃ , a comic idea was born.Â Justin said that Penny Arcade did something similar.Â Anyhoot, there it is.Â An amazing story behind every comic!
Anyone else have that MOST HATED AGGRAVATING enemy in Mass Effect multiplayer? For us it’s the damn Combat Engineers. Always setting up F$*^ing turrets during a hack, or dropping a magical “self-setting-up” turret even if you kill them! Well in this comic, we show our “appreciation” towards them.
