Lol its starting to look like you just aren't very good.


haha, this is the harsh but maybe the fairest answer. I've been playing FPS for (geez) 13-14 years now? Have played CS since it first came out. When I play Black Ops, I generally crush the competition you are supposed to crush, and roughly break even or so against the teams that are clearly all used to playing with each other.

What game mode do you normally play? A while back, I switched to hardcore mode full time, because it benefits my playing ability better. I can lock onto an enemy and blast him pretty quickly, but I would get frustrated constantly because they require like 6 shots to go down in "Core" mode. At the end of the round, I would end up with as many assists as I had kills. Hardcore Domination is where it's at.

Yeah, if you're going to make yourself suffer through the CoD and MW games, you might as well do hardcore. When you kill someone, it makes sense, as is when you get killed. So you're not sitting there getting steamed at some crap where you think you should've lived. Just keep moving and take corners looking down your sight.

Yeah, and just like in real life, even in hardcore you can take a shot or even two to a limb and still keep moving, albeit weakened.

In Core, you can take seven shots to the torso, duck behind a corner, and miraculously return to full health within seconds. Stupid.

And the reason you keep getting matched up with people that're much better is because the CoD series ranking system is stupid. You do get XP for doing well, thus keeping you on pace with your performance. You rank up regardless.

People that play a ton should be matched up with people that are better than them. Your spirits should be broken, you're spending too much time playing video games. :pop:

MW3 has also been out for a couple of years, so the player base knows the maps, weapons, and game modes really well, making it difficult for new players to get acclimated to the game.

I couldn't imagine jumping into a BF3 server for the first time now...so many Col 100's with M16A3s... :lol:

Also, I know most game publications are days or weeks behind everyone, but there is a new Skyrim mod that adds another 1/3 land mass and 25 hours of content, all created by a recent high school graduate: http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/07/16/behin ... ilding-it/

Pretty interesting. Someday, I'll buy this game.

Up to 83% complete on Lego LOTR. Finished all of the story boards on Free play. Only have 4 minikits I need to get spread over 3 boards, mainly ones from running away at the end that I missed and just didn't feel like going through again.

Last of Us is actually pretty cool so far, but I hate being forced to play this on consoles. This super low resolution is terrible. I keep thinking that I spot items but no it is just the lack of anti aliasing and the 2006 resolution.

I picked up Dark Souls on the steam sale. I'll probably dig into this next if I finish Last of Us before EU4 comes out.

Being a rookie and piloting in BF3 is nearly impossible now. At this point, the people who want to pilot are good at it, and will shoot you down quickly. Even when I was a capable jet pilot, I once spent the entire match trailing 1 fighter. I just couldn't shoot him down, though some of that was due to my lack of steadiness with the guns.

I hope the Last of Us wakes Capcom up making them realize you can still make a great survival horror game and sell well. I heard from Adam Sessler that The Last of Us is already the highest selling game of the year across all platforms, and it also outsold Iron Man 3 (the movie) opening week. To outsell a big budget Hollywood movie is crazy.

I hope Capcom realizes that they won't get my money unless they base RE games on the RE4/5 model. Not sure why they wouldn't keep going with that system when those were the best selling games they've had.

Most of these big release games do that. Black Ops 2 grossed half a billion in a single day. You figure all they need to do is sell two million copies of the game and you're at $120 million, which only a few movies have beat.

I refuse to play softcore CoD because of what you are saying. So frustrating to deal with. Hardcore Domination is definitely my favorite game mode (mostly since hardcore CTF is gone) but I hate when half the team is trying to play freaking TDM and it ruins the game. I hate those kids.

Hardcore domination seems like something not video game related.

Hardcore kill confirmed for me when I gotta play. Still like TDM but with an objective in place. I love domination, but I feel like I'm the only one that goes for the points. Same way with Halo and CTF.

I stopped playing FPS when the rgular became those rotations where you run into all these different game types. Its where the better people play. I just want to do straight up team deathmatch. Delta Force Task Force Dagger TDM was the be all/end all for me.

I have been playing FIFA 13 again lately. I landed easily my best prospect I've ever had in my new Manager Mode. Gonzalo Mattuschka. He is up to 82 overall at age 19. He is a CAM who I have moved to ST because of a need there and attributes I like in my strikers present in him. He is currently leading Bundesliga in scoring during the winter transfer window and Real Madrid just bid $75M for his services. I think I'm going to take it and buy Cavini+ because he is amazing in FIFA and I am the Uruguayan National Team coach.

Earthbound for SNES is coming to virtual console today and their seems to be a lot of excitement over this. Anyone remember this game, is it really good or something?

I have tried to play it many times, but I basically get an hour into the game or so and can't figure out what to do in town. I don't understand the appeal of the game.
