Well I'll most likely be on tonight. I think I got my fill of SWAT, so I'll probably just play some other stuff unless we get some peeps to do a group thang.

I got two hours of sleep last night, so I suspect I'll be getting up around 9 or 10 pm EST, eat, and then game some. Perhaps I'll catch you for some RBT or something. We could try that MLG Playlist if we're suicidal.

My parents are actually pretty young, but I'm kinda old. I have a feeling I'm the oldest one of the bunch of us who play regularly together.

In other news: today marked the end of tests till late next month, my return to wasting my life away is imminent.

I'm going to be out of town (and worse, away from my 360) until late Saturday night. Sorry, guys. Maybe we could do Sunday?

Pic(s) of the Day
Meet-up Free-for-All

on Guardian

Tag

;;maroma:: gives chuckit a parting gift.

Close call

stogieman picks me off with the sniper rifle. He spent most of the game zoomed in that location. He wasn't shooting much either. Creepy.

Ninja

My, at the time, inexplicable assassination. SKill, my friends, skill.

NetZero

Another "quality" snipe from stogieman.

Four-for-all

The group meets in the lift room. Note ::maroma:: sending more going away presents on the level below.

Flattened

chuckit drops the hammer on ::maroma;;, quite literally.

Peace?

::maroma:: offers chuckit a hug.

We'll just postpone till next Wednesday.

Amazing, something that was supposed to be done in two nights is now going on 4 weeks...

---

kb, nah, we'll pass on a meet-up tonight. Last weeks was paltry anyway.

Anyone interested in doing a little Legendary / Meta-game? Don't need much turnout for that.

I'll help out with meta games tonight if you guys want to. Although I have all of those achievements, so by me being on the team will take pts away from the rest of you. But if you want me in, I'll join.

I will probably be playing some RS:V (version 1) but if you guys send me an invite I'll switch to Halo.

I'm also going to try to get to 15 rank on RBT tonight. Got to 14 last night but couldn't get to 15. Grrr.

I also need the damned skull from Cortana. But depending who we have I'll prioritize. The biggest thing before was I couldn't get past the Wraith on the Ark by myself.

Patience young KB, soon our lives will be filled with Orange Cammo and Incendiary Grenades.

In fact, I'll be buying it tomorrow.

Look to the East at the first light of dawn on the fourth day...or whatever

Rookie.

But no, I can help you get the skull. And I could also help with meta game, but I will just mostly hang back and let whoever needs the points get the points first, just cleaning up misc. enemies or whatever. I guess I'm saying, I'm up for whatever you need me for.

Yeah this is why I'm playing RS:V right now. I've had it for a while, just never really got into it. I want to finish the first one before I get the 2nd one (although I'm currently stuck in a rough spot). But I've heard good things about 2, so I'm anxious to get it.

I'm pretty sure I did it myself once, but I don't remember how, and with each death counting I don't care to figure out.

That said, there's a reason I play TS and not LW.

Some other time. I'm suddenly not feeling this. You guts do you LV, I think I'll continue to get lessons in TS.

KB, first impressions of RSV: 2...

Love the new 'tag' feature when setting up a dramatic entrance.
Love the run button, which has already saved me from death.
LOVE the xp system and ACE, now I find myself making my team stay back so I can hog all the headshots.

Other than that the game is pretty much identical to RSV, which isn't a bad thing since I loved that game.

We need to hit the game co-op soon, I see a few achievements i want.

I must say i agree with everything you said, I just completed ACES today actually. I've been an achievement whore i must say, I'm going for everything i can. I just got the 3 ranked wins in a row achievement today too. I'm down for some co-op for sure. I'm addicted to getting EXP and trying to get my rank up (I'm right at the end of First Sergeant (3K EXP away from Sergeant Major))

I have a feeling there will be a lull in H3 activity around here for a month or so, what with RSV2 and GTAIV coming out.

If H2 was any indicator then H3 will make a massive resurgence for me several times.

Yeah, I think that's probably healthy. Taking a nice break from a game usually makes it all that much better when you get back to playing it.

I'm planning on picking up RS:V2 soon, and GTAIV when it arrives. I want to finish RS:V1 first though. Helps me justify buying a new game. Workin on it.

I see that you are

You'll start with extra exp. if you played the original as well.

You, KB, and I will have a ball doing Terrorist Hunt for more xp. It's just my second day owning it and I'm almost at Gunnery Sgt.

Edit: Oh yeah, I bought the game at Best Buy and it came with a code you enter when in the menu and it unlocks an Assault Rifle for you. if you want the code KB just ask. It's for the TARI21 (previous the MTARI21 in RSV)

dude TH is amazing for EXP (remember a c4 explosion will get you +3 assault, awesome for door ways you know will be filled with guys). Actually i could of used that code a few days ago haha but since i completed ACES i have every gun now. I bought it from Gamestop so i have the code for the free map if you want that. (i'm home from PSU this weekend for a training seminar for work, so it will be a boring saturday night if your down for some online, or anyone else for some H3)

The g/f is going to Rhode Island for the day and night, so yeah...I'm going to playing RSV2 just a little tomorrow

Also, I'll take that map code.

I'm currently a 10 / 10 / 5 in ACES, so my Assault needs some help. I've been flying through marksman in campaign and CQB in TH. It's really hard to do a TH mission by yourself, but I'f been hosting games all day and just waiting for someone to bite.

Go to menu, extras, enter COMCAST FASTER and you'll get a new map. Also i learned today that if you sign up for Ubi softs forum you can get the map "Streets" from RSV1. Tomorrow for sure, lets hit up some co-op and TH

stogieman, I managed not only to play Big Team Slayer on Rat's Nest (finally), I managed to get it back-to-back.
The results:

A Triple-Double


Probably the highest amount of Wheelmans I've scored in a MM game.

Cool. I finally got a game of slayer on Rat's Nest last night as well. It's my new favorite BTB map.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.
