Today, I went to GameStop and I got Wolfenstein and the strategy guide together. So far I am enjoying the single player, which was the main reason I bought the game. If you like World War II games and want a game with a good single player, this game is for you. I like how they put in both supernatural powers and the ability to upgrade your weapons as well.
Well last night I was playing Nazi Zombies on Nacht Der Untoten solo, and I was wondering if I ever would get past my best record on Nazi Zombies, round 19. Last night I had both the Root Cellar and the First Room stairs open to lessen the flow of zombies and ran around the pillars in the root cellar using both the Ray Gun and MG42 to get to round 23 before I was overwhelmed mid-round by the zombies and died, taking with me to my grave over 400 dead zombies while also getting 102 headshots.
Tonight I am going to go see the new Transformers movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. I have seen the first Transformers movie and I thought it was awesome, with a lot of action-packed scenes. I hope that the new movie doesn't disappoint me, but it should have a lot of action in it. I actually went and saw the new Night at the Museum movie, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, and I thought it was pretty funny and as good as the first Night at the Museum movie. My favorite character in the Transformers movies would have to be Ratchet, the Autobot medic. I can't wait to go see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen tonight!
In every First Person Shooter game, there are always people who use certain weapons that are their favorite weapons. This is about my top ten favorite weapons in all the FPS games I have ever played.
10. M2 Flamethrower (Call of Duty: World at War): The M2 flamethrower used by US forces during World War II is available in COD:WAW as a weapon you can pick up or you start out with in the American part of the Single Player campaign of Call of Duty: World at War. It works just like any other flamethrower, it burns enemies to death. It can also set alight treetops and any other vegetation. It also is available in the Nazi Zombies game mode in Call of Duty: World at War, to best employ the flamethrower in Nazi Zombies, it is suggested to use it on solo or to cover the zombie entrances.
9. FG42 automatic rifle (Return to Castle Wolfenstein): The FG42 has appeared in several WWII FPS games, such as RTCW, COD3, and COD:WAW. I will be talking about the RTCW FG42. The FG42 is found in RTCW as the primary weapon of Heinrich Himmler's elite Black Guard, and it is a powerful and deadly weapon in their hands. It comes equipped with a Telescopic Sight, but it has no zoom mode. Overall, this is a weapon that will be far more useful in the later levels of RTCW than the SMGs. Fires the German 7.92 Mauser rifle round that was standard during World War II
8. M3 "Grease Gun" submachine gun (COD2, Brothers In Arms series): The M3 Grease Gun was a submachine gun used by US forces during World War II, and near the end of the war, began to replace the Thompson as the standard SMG of the US armed forces. It fires the same .45 caliber round as the Thompson and Colt M1911 pistol, but has a slower rate of fire than the Thompson for better ammo control and consumption. The only disappointment I have with the Grease Gun is that it is not a common weapon in many WWII FPS games.
7. Walther P99 pistol (Rainbow Six Vegas 2): The Walther P99 is one of several handguns available for use on Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and all sidearms have unlimited ammo. I am currently using the P99 as my standard sidearm on Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and it has good damage and accuracy. This is a weapon that could save your life in Rainbow Six Vegas 2 when your primary weapons are out of ammo or you need to reload but don't have time to reload.
6. AUG Para submachine gun (Rainbow Six Vegas 2): The AUG Para is a submachine gun available for use in Rainbow Six Vegas 2, but you have to unlock it at level 18 CQB (In Rainbow Six Vegas 2 you can unlock new weapons by gaining XP). It is basically a conversion of a standard Steyr AUG assault rifle but instead fires 9mm Parabellum ammunition as many SMGs and handguns today use this round. It is good for close quarters combat and clearing rooms, just like any other submachine gun. I am currently using this weapon as one of my two primary weapons in Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
5. FNC assault rifle (Rainbow Six Vegas 2) The FNC is a Belgian-designed assault rifle currently in use by the Belgian armed forces, and it is unlocked in Rainbow Six Vegas 2 once you reach level 16 Assault. It is a good assault rifle since it has good accuracy and damage, and is easy to control. It fires the standard NATO 5.56 round from 30 round magazines. This is a good weapon, so if you ever play Rainbow Six Vegas 2, this will definitely be a weapon you will want to pick up. I am also using this as my main primary weapon on Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
4. STG-44 assault rifle (COD2, COD3, COD:WAW, BIA series): I'm probably sure a lot of people know what the STG-44 is. It is one of the first assault rifles ever made by any country in the world, and was designed and produced by Germany during World War II, firing the 7.92mm Kurz (Kurz meaning "short" in German) round from a 30 round magazine. It is a good weapon if you can find it in any of the games I have listed. Overall, it is a good automatic weapon to pick up if you find it, because it is far more useful for long-range shooting than a submachine gun, but better for close combat than a bolt-action rifle.
3. Arisaka bolt-action rifle (Call of Duty: World at War): The Arisaka bolt-action rifle used by the Japanese armed forces during World War II appears in Call of Duty: World at War as a usable weapon. It has good accuracy, good damage (It's usually a one-shot kill weapon), and reloads fairly quickly. It appears in three versions in the game, the standard rifle, the standard rifle equipped with a bayonet for melee attacks (The bayonet is actually quite fun to use), and a scoped variant for sniper use. It also appears in the Nazi Zombies map Shi No Numa as one of the few Japanese weapons to appear in Nazi Zombies along with the Type 100 submachine gun. Overall, the Arisaka is a good weapon and if you play COD:WAW, I suggest you pick it up and give it a try.
2. Ray Gun (Call of Duty: World at War): The Ray Gun is a weapon that is found in Call of Duty: World at War only in the second mission Little Resistance (As an Easter Egg) and the Nazi Zombies game mode. Sure, it may look like a 1950's scifi ray gun found on TV, but don't let its funny appearance fool you. It is actually one of the best weapons you can even get in Nazi Zombies and it is one of the most powerful weapons as it will kill a zombie with one shot. The magazine holds 20 rounds plus you get an extra 160 rounds, meaning you will have 180 rounds total. It is pinpoint accurate, but the "ray" travels much more slowly than a regular bullet. If a zombie gets too close and you fire the Ray Gun at close range, it will kill you if you are playing on Single Player, but won't kill you on Multiplayer. If you have the Ray Gun and you get any weapons out of the Random Box, do not trade it off, as it will keep you alive in the higher rounds of Nazi Zombies. It's funny in the Nazi Zombies map Verruckt as your character (A unnamed US marine) will say some lines whenever he gets the Ray Gun from the Random Weapon Box, such as "This ain't standard issue!", "This is the wierdest gun I've ever seen!", "Does this come with a manual?", "I got the spaceman gun!", "It's like a gun that shoots rays!", "This thing better pack a punch!", or "Is this a toy?".
1. MP40 submachine gun (Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Call of Duty series, BIA series, possibly the new Wolfenstein): This is my favorite weapon I have ever used in any FPS game, and it doesn't disappoint. The MP40 was the standard submachine gun used by the German armed forces during World War II, firing the 9mm Parabellum round from a 32 round magazine. It is useful for clearing out rooms and trenches just like any other submachine gun. The MP40 is also available in the Nazi Zombies game mode, but is overshadowed by the Thompson, but it is still an effective zombie-killing weapon that will keep you alive until you can get better weapons. The MP40's accuracy on Return to Castle Wolfenstein was very poor, but the rate of fire more than made up for it. In the COD series, it is accurate at close to medium ranges and commonly found on dead enemies, so ammo shouldn't be too much of a problem.
And that is my top ten list of favorite weapons in FPS games.
I remember buying Call of Duty: World at War back in November when it came out, and I played through the Single Player campaign, and when I beat the game, I unlocked a unique game mode only available on Call of Duty: World at War: Nazi Zombies! In Nazi Zombies, your objective is to try and survive as many waves of Nazi Zombies as possible. But the waves of Nazi Zombies are limitless, so there is no chance of you winning the battle against the undead hordes. Nazi Zombies can be played by 1 player, but it is most fun when playing with up to 3 other players either on split-screen, System link (for the Xbox 360), or online. Nazi Zombies consists of 3 maps currently, with a fourth on the way in August. They are Nacht Der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa, and Der Riese. I will give a brief overview of each zombie map.
Nacht Der Untoten (German for Night of the Undead.): The original Nazi Zombies map included with COD:WAW, also the smallest and simplest, and the only Nazi Zombies map I have played. Set in a building similar to one of the buildings in the mission Hard Landing (The one midway through the mission with the two Japanese MGs firing on you from the upper floor, forcing you to blow them up with rifle grenades.), also does not have perk machines or traps.
Verruckt (German for Crazy or Insane.): The second Nazi Zombies map, set in an abandoned insane asylum in Berlin, Germany, the Wittenau Sanitorium (which was a actual insane asylum in real life.), larger than Nacht Der Untoten, but players are still confined to stay inside the asylum. Player characters actually speak for the first time. Also includes perk machines and new weapons, as well as electric barriers to help stop the zombies. Released along with 3 other maps in Map Pack 1 of COD:WAW.
Shi No Numa (Japanese for Swamp of Death.): The third map in Nazi Zombies, but instead of Nazi Zombies, the zombies are now undead Imperial Japanese soldiers. The map is far larger than Verruckt or Nacht Der Untoten, about the size of a a medium-sized map, and is more open, meaning you can move around in the swamp rather than being confined to one building. The perk machines are still present, Japanese weapons are now present, including the Type 100 SMG and the Arisaka rifle, as well as a new superweapon, the Wunderwaffe DG-2. Also a new enemy makes its debut appearance in Shi No Numa, the Hellhounds. The player characters are also interesting, while in Verruckt and Nacht Der Untoten you played as nameless US Marines, in Shi No Numa you get to play as 4 different characters, 1 American, 1 Russian, 1 Japanese, and 1 German, each with their own personalities. Released in Map Pack 2 of COD:WAW and includes 10 new achievements.
Der Riese (means "The Giant" in German) (aka Zombie Factory): The fourth map in Nazi Zombies, due to be released in August in Map Pack 3 of COD:WAW. The Nazi Zombies make a return in this map, which is set in a secret Nazi research facility in Poland, and it is possible that the story of Nazi Zombies will be explained here. Some new features include teleporters to help you escape the zombies, as well as Pack-a-Punch machines that give out weapon attachments. The Hellhounds make a return in this map, as well as the Wunderwaffe DG-2. Like in Shi No Numa, there will also be 10 new achievements in this Nazi Zombies map.
I was so ready for Wolfenstein to come out on August 4th here in North America, and then Raven Software dropped their bombshell that Wolfenstein has been delayed to be released on August 18th in North America. Well it won't matter too much for me, since it gives Raven some more time to finish Wolfenstein and make it a better game. Even though Wolfenstein has been delayed, I am still going to buy it for the Xbox 360.
I can't wait, the new Wolfenstein game is finally coming out this year for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. I might have to get this game, but I'll want to see how it turns out first. Wolfenstein is due to be released on August 4th, 2009.
The top 5 games that I own are: (My Rating scale is 5 is the lowest and 1 is the highest)
3. Brothers In Arms: Road to Hill 30 (Xbox)
