MW2 vs Black Ops... multiplayer edition

Infinity Ward: hey guys, i haz an idea... let's put in a standalone grenade launcher with a HUGE blast radius!!1! We gon cal it teh "thumper".


Treyarch: Huh, teh playerz are teh angries. Let's put in a PUMP ACTION GRENADE LAUNCHER WIT A H00GE BLAST RADIUHS! We gon call it teh "China Lake".

It all happened so fast...

So, I got bored on the weekend and bought Black Ops today... full review coming up when I'm done with the campaign, satisfied with the zombie mode, and mad at the multiplayer. I have no clue why I bought it. Oh well, I guess I'll have something to do this weekend.

Starcraft 2 is a fail? You're a fail!

There seems to be an abnormally large amount of people hating on Starcraft 2 these days. All I have to say is... stop it. Starcraft 2 is hands down the best RTS to come out of the gaming industry since Age of Empires 3 (2005).

In my in-depth probing of Starcraft haters (coughtrollingcough), it appears that the vast majority of Starcraft haters are hardcore FPS fans who don't play RTS. You know what I have to say to this? FPS players have over twice the chance of getting a divorce as RTS players - perhaps because FPS players have no patience.

So, if you are a Starcraft hater - I gotta ask you a question. What is it about SC2 that you hated so much? Also, how much time did you spend playing the game? Post your comments below, I'm curious to see.

Time for new consoles.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 are getting outdated. Like, really outdated. An Alienware 11 inch laptop contains more computing power. The hardware specs on the two consoles were great, a few years ago. They're currently subpar. Let's take a look at them, and then I'll compare them to an Alienware Laptop.


Processor - 3.2Ghz, singlecore

Video card 550Mhz NVidia card, roughly comparable to the 9800GTX.

Memory - 256MB

Xbox 360

Processor - 3.2Ghz triple core processor

Video Card - 500Mhz ATI processor

512MB of memory

Alienware 11x

Processor - Intel i7 Quadcore (3.2 x4)

Graphics - default is NVidia 335M

Memory - 4GB

So, we see that an 11 inch Alienware laptop easily out powers both the Xbox 360 and PS3 combined. Ouch. Time for new Consoles, guys. I'm using my laptop more than my PS3 (granted, that probably has more to do with Starcraft than anything else). Until the Xbox 720/PS4 is out, though, I'm going to be playing a lot more on my mac than my big screen. And yeah, I know it's going to be a while. I'm willing to wait. I'm not missing out on much.
