Competitive Gamebattles


I’m a huge fan of Machinima and Machinima Respawn and they do a great job of posting content of video games that people want on YouTube. Recently Respawn have been posting gamebattle matches with some of my favourite commentators playing. I’ve always loved the idea of playing competitively in a team and watching those videos coupled with watching the Call of Community a couple of days ago has really got me wanting to play some competitive Call of Duty.

Not too long ago was I hating the idea of putting Black Ops in my disc tray and even buying MW3 but lately I find myself really enjoying Black Ops once again. Maybe just playing some scrims or just playing some games for fun would satisfy me. Just playing against actual organised human beings would be good enough. Even though I would love to start up a team with my friends most of my friends aren’t beasts are Call of Duty, one is beast, two are good objective players and I would consider myself to be all right, maybe not a beast, an inconsistent beast would be the best way to describe me. I guess I could start up a team but we would get raped!

If you’re on Xbox and you want to play, not even gamebattles then add me and message me, Gamertag in ‘About’.

Battlefield over Call of Duty


I haven’t posted anything in a while so I thought I’d talk about something that is kind of important in games right now and will be later on this year. Lately I’ve been a lot more interested in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. I bought the game when it first came out and I immediately fell in love, I played a lot of COD near the end of MW2 and pretty much played COD over Battlefield most of the time, only going back for a game or two. Now I’m back in and really excited for Battlefield 3 and not so excited for MW3.

For me it’s the gameplay, I do enjoy arena games like Halo and COD but I love the open battlefields and realistic gameplay that is showcased in Battlefield. I understand that games like COD may take more gun skill to drop opponents and complete objectives but in Battlefield you have to work together, I mean it’s like real war! You have to revive to keep ticket numbers up, give ammo, spot people etc. There are a lot of games that I want for example, L.A. Noire, Portal 2 and games that haven’t come out yet like Skyrim but I haven’t been feeling the same way about MW3. The engine has hardly been upgraded since COD4 and I’m not a graphics whore! But seriously, the Frostbite engine has was upgraded from Bad Company 1 to Bad Company 2 and now they are upgrading it again! That shows that DICE aren’t looking for a game to crap out every year whether it’s ready or not, they want to take their sweet time making a quality game. Who knows, with Sledgehammer helping Infinity Ward on the campaign and Raven Software takes care of the multiplayer, we could see a great experience in online gaming, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

I know it sounds like I’m crapping on the Call of Duty franchise which I am and not very subtly but I do love Call of Duty no matter how much it angers me sometimes. In fact I am getting into it a little more thanks to Machinima Respawn posting competitive gamebattle matches and the Call of Community which just passed really got my hyped up to play Call of Duty.

I’m not sure if I’ll get MW3 but I’m not going to say no straight away. I know if something sells why stop selling it but I hope Activision one day see that enough is enough and do something about the franchise.
