I thought I would call by and share a few of them with you.
I am slowly getting annoyed to the point of frustration with Treyarch’s poor attempt at a first person shooter game, Black Ops 2. They never were really any good at it and this version has terrible problems from the start. Poor spawn points, horrendous lag spikes and lag compensation coding and some of the worst map design’s I have ever had the misfortune to play on.
It is so bad that I am already looking towards the release of the next game which will not arrive till sometime in November I believe.
However when it does I have great expectations for it. Mainly due to the reason that it has West and Zampella working on it.
If you are not a gamer that probably means nothing to you but if you are and are still unsure here’s a few pointers,
These guys worked on EA's once-popular Medal of Honor military shooter series before founding Infinity Ward and turning Call of Duty into a biggest selling media/gaming/cash cow for rival Activision.
Remember Call of Duty II back at the launch of the Xbox 360? That was them.
Remember Call of Duty IV: Modern Warfare and its now industry-standard unlock-based multiplayer system? Them too.
Remember that "No Russian" level in 2009's Modern Warfare 2? Them.
These guys know how to make a FPS game and I am looking forward very much to what they will return to the table with.
The report says the game will star "a battle hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view" (another one),the game also will include flashbacks of "Soap McTavish"
Have you ever seen the damage that a grain of sand can do when it hits something at 186,282 miles per second? No, neither have I but you can bet it ain't pretty.
Other things I have been musing about whilst I have been incapacitated after two spinal operations include drug dealers, why do drug dealers who get raided and are caught in possession of drugs with a street value of well over £100.000 live in shit holes?
I mean really, they are scummy little scum bags I know but with that sort of dosh you’d think they might live somewhere a bit nicer or at least be able to afford a cleaner.
I also watched an advert on the television the other day which showed a women using some sort of roll on eye cream thing. Apparently it reduced the appearance of “bags” so I thought (bagsta) great, an invisibility cream and searched through some of Fi’s makeup to see if she had some. Alas it didn’t work and I didn’t even appear slightly reduced, not even on the scales.
There was something about some bloke in a dress retiring or something as well which lead to lots of men in dresses and pointy hats making a lot of smoke and generally taking up far too much prime time television. It looked like a meeting of the KKK but apparently it was the Catholic Church, you know the Roman Empire never did really fall it just re branded itself “The Catholic Church”.
It has also started to really annoy me that people use the word “math” when they mean “maths” , that and the phrase “I could care less” the phrase is actually “I couldn’t care less” think about it it’s not fucking rocket science.
The whole interconnectedness of our universe and even our own home planet never cease to be a source of amazement for me, did you know that algae from the Sahara actually help to fertilise the Amazon rain forest?
For some reason this got me to thinking about parallel universes and the fact that they may have a gravitational effect on our own universe thus pulling the earth onto a different orbit ever so slowly which could in turn be part of the reason it is still bloody snowing in April.
Maybe we could counter this in some way, after all an orbit is simply a balance between motion and gravity and if would probably be a much better use for the flux pinning magnets and shit loads of liquid nitrogen than trying to obliterate ones self at close to light speed.
