Got invited to a bunch of search matches on Blops 3, crazy how much better that game is, its nice not dying to orange guns all the time.

Really the only gun I see commonly on it are marshals.

You ever do the chicken dance at a wake? That really bothers people.

Maybe I should go back to Blops for a while. I miss my specialists with their not lovely weapons and abilities. I got pretty decent at sniping so I could probably finish those pretty quick before moving to the pistols.

Actually, I think I only need to do the SVG-100 to finish them off. I'm fairly certain I did complete the P-06.

The Christmas noobs have brought me a bountiful harvest. I finally decided to spend the salvage and buy the Fallout and not let these lobbies go to waste and lo and behold I managed to get 4 de-atmoizers yesterday (2 in one game)!

I think you could have had a triple if you had a bit more time. Its also nice that your group members don't yell gently caress after every death.

Been playing this with my sister over the weekend, figured I'd give my no-CoD experience impression for the 0 people interested:

Game looks fine, plenty if nice maps without buying packs, weapon balance in MP bugs me a lot. Basically every AR feels like it can instakill you at any range with half a second. I really like shotguns in shooters, so it kind of sucks when it seems that I need to drop two meatshots on someone before they instantly drop me! As a result I've been taking a liking to just running around with Merc (Bull Charge) and the launcher (which has the lowest explosion radius of any launcher I've ever used in a shooter), which has been working well and netting me a positive score.

Unlocks are absolutely grotesque; I like unlocks and progression in games, but after about a 50 hours into the game we only have a quarter of the weapons unlocked (not counting all the variants). This would be less frustrating if it felt like the guns were balanced well against each other, but so many feel like worthless trap picks whereas others are best-in-class even before you account for unlockable accessories like homing bullets, tighter spreads, recoil reduction etc. are factored in. The only shotgun I've seen anyone do well with has been the Rack-9, which seems to be a one-hit anywhere from punch-range to far-mid range, and is Rank 49 (we're up to Rank 16). At times the game feels like it has more in common with EVE Online (spreadsheet simulator where you press a few buttons to feel like you're actually dogfighting) than an actual FPS.

Everyone is indistinguishable from one-another; we're playing very close to a 60 inch TV, and we still constantly miss enemies just standing next to a gray wall or crouching on a tan cliff. It kind of makes me blase about the cosmetic unlocks though, since it makes them seem kinda grind-to-lose.

A lot of the rig abilities feel really tacked on. The Merc, Synaptic, and Warfighter all have a derpy gun as their first payload; either a slow laser that doesnt kill very fast, a super wide gatling gun that might do damage if you get close enough, and two machineguns that kill half as fast as an AR. On the bright side all three have a second payload that actually manages to be pretty good, so theres that.

The Zombie Mode has an INSANE amount of depth, completely different style, loaded with new assets and VA's. It's very arcadey and incredibly fun, and I have played a little of a prior cod zombie mode so its not just "wowow horde mode!". There's an almost rube goldbergian amount of secrets and triggers to set off, lots of fate/fortune cards that dramatically change how you play, all the weapons of the base game, and a ton of unique powerups and grenades. It would be an amazing party game if it still had 4 player local co-op.

Bitching aside, its a pretty fun game, even if theres a lot of...kind of hosed up elements that have gotten absurd over the franchise. I can't imagine how people follow this franchise if every game has this amount of gated weapon unlocks. every gun could be unlocked from the start and there'd still easily be a hundred hours of cosmetics to unlock. If you can handle that the game easily trounces Battlefield's shrinking number of maps and shorter/lack of campaigns or fun modes in terms of content.

Is there an actual community on console for the MW remake multiplayer or is it totally dead? I am considering getting the PS4 legacy pack because its on sale, and 25$ each seems good for IW and the remake.

Oh, I forgot to also say that Terminal is a loving awful map that seems to exist just so that sniper players can have their obnoxious raised sniping spots and wide empty rooms and pretend that their situational one-shot guns are equally useful as everyone's oneshot guns.

All the other maps are fun with cool chokepoints, though.

Bomber is definitely worth it, probably my favorite gun by far. I don't even run it in AR mode, just run it with a ELO and run it as a sniper.

Yes, there is a large player base on PS4, and should be a big one on Xbox One too. Just avoid the PC version.

We had a couple of rough spots, but I think we won a game 100-11 this evening. And they stayed for like 4 matches. Also aaron got back to back nukes, then we forbade him from getting any more.

Got an orange Kbar variant on my Christmas gift of the day.

Went 40-8 my first match with it, I feel like I'm cheating with this thing.

5 more quad feeds, 2 more air to ground.

Honestly I'm not sure what I'm hitting on these air to ground because half the time they sure as gently caress aren't scorestreaks.

Also for some form of voluntary torture I'm doing 50 sliding kills on the RPR. Which loving clown thought 50 of those was a reasonable thing to put in? I use the modular and had to switch from my normal setup to QD, Grip and Laser along with the power slide FTL to get results. Until I decided to bring the Ripper out. That things shreds on SMG mode when sliding and it's really made this challenge bearable.

Maybe after that bullshit I can go back to beating up Christmas noobs.

On a related note I got called a "loving jumping bug" and I'm not sure what that meant but thanks, guy from I think Middlesborough who thought quickscoping a sliding Ripper would be smart. Repeatedly.

Hardcore was the way to go for getting those sliding kills. Unfortunately after getting diamond for ARs, SMGs, and LMGs, trying to use a sniper rifle for any amount of time kills my desire to play. May just have to give up my ambitions for Solar.

I can't even imagine golding another SMG never mind diamonding the stupid things. Hardcore is pretty smart though. Gotta stop forgetting that exists.

So did they gently caress up something with the holiday gift keys again? It says I have 40 even after I spent them.

Edit: never mind, the problem solved itself.

What's the better NV4 variant? Everyone uses the Fallout one but I will never get a nuke so I don't care about it.
