I'm a big fan of multiplayer, hell it's pretty much the only thing I play on a consistant basis because the most amounttimes I'd ever go through a game might two or three -depending on the genre; you gotta be a pretty hardcore RPG gamer to play a friggen 200 hour game more than once. I just came back from a probably the worst f****g thing that can happen when you are playing an FPS on multiplayer - no it isn't lag - it's team stacking.
You gotta be f****g me. I guess I'm not one to talk because I wouldn't be complaining if I was on the better team, but the ass pounding that I was getting was a f****g joke. At first I thought that these extreme cases of team stacking, aka anal rapage, was only subjected to Valve games, in particular, the originator of almost all negative behaviour in FPS games, Counter-Strike. Was I f****g wrong today or what.
I don't whether it's that some people are just newbies, or are just f****g dumb as s**t, but when you see a grenade falling under you, pick it up! Christ, instead of running away and getting blown to f****g pieces, pick the bloody thing up and throw it back! Like what is wrong with some people? If you guessed it, I had the pleasure of getting anally pumped in Call of Duty 4, and then subsequently, Team Fortress 2. I don't know how to think any more when s**t like this happens. I only play Dustbowl and Well for TF2, and if you know something about the former of those maps - as fun as they might be - is a breeding ground for team stacking.
Why hasn't someone made some kind of program that fixes this? The ones that are right now, just make sure teams have an even number of players. Instead of coming up with bulls**t like "PunkBuster" which has twice now kicked me out of server and suspended me for a set amount of time because it couldn't find "key patches" - maybe just maybe developers could come up with a system that fixes that problem.
Then you got r****s saying "Try harder", or they start laughing. F****g tools, those are the dumbass noobs who purposely spectate until they can land themselves on a better team then let the better players do the work while they just coast.
That's my angry rant of the week right there. I got a new video up, so check that out. I was impressed with the Ninja Gaiden Sigma demo, and sorely pissed off at how frustrating it is to play Guitar Hero 3 on an HDTV. You figure with 3 titles out before this one they would have fixed a problem like that. Motorstorm is an addicting game, I'm having a far better time playing that than GH3.
Enjoy the rest of the Holidays everyone.
