good games tonight guys, we had a mini meet up plus some more people... even had a full BTB Team of 8 for a while.
Quick highlights of my evening, more to come later...

BTB on Standoff
Not only my first Rampage & Untouchable but... an Invincible (thanks to apsolid for the warthog driving)




BTB on Standoff (different game)
2 Running Riots, finished with a good +56 w/ 70 kills

Well i would have to say Apsolid is the best driver I have ever seen. After the games i decided to go take a few pictures of the matches.

Bogues being driven by Apsolid getting his first invincible.


Then after that, Fatty and more of Kevin's friends join in and Fatty decides to steal my kill by shooting this dead guy in the head. (How?)


Only A few minutes later me and Stogieman (whose helmet is not on) double team this ghost.


After a stressful game of Covies Mcbiscuit took his rage out on some elites.

I'll be getting drunk all day at a going away party for a friend. I can, however, see myself playing all day Sunday.

It seems like a convoluted way to superficially hide the fact that you're about to get raped by a General, best I can tell.

But it does seem to hint at giving you a feel for how far you are from each skill progression (if I'm reading it right)

Hmm, very interesting. I still don't fully understand, does this mean your army rank (general brig., etc) will change depending on the playlist you're in?

That's my best guess. Read the weekly update, if you care, god knows I didn't go over it with a fine tooth comb.

Had a good two games with Dakar, KB, and Stogie last night. Despite Dakar warning me about his general state of suck he did pretty damn well.

Hilarious moment from CTF on Valhalla.

I hit the Banshee with the missile pod, he runs for cover, I hit him again and he charges at me. I empty a half clip of BR and brace for splatter. As a total desperation move I melee just as the banshee boosts into me.

Somehow, some way, I manage to destroy the banshee with my well-timed melee.


I must've laughed hysterically for about a minute solid after this.

The first game we had was Slayer at Last Resort, which contained such über-pwnage I bet the other team committed suicide afterwards.

The totals


Fatty's stats


Other notables: Dakar and I had only two deaths. Our team's k/d was +60, their team was -62. Crosbie manned the Warthog for 8 of KBs turret kills.

Yeah, I was reviewing the games this morning. I looked at the other team, and then I understood. I figure I'm playing around a 20 lvl right now. Last resort has always been good to me as well.

The Valhalla game looks more realistic. I died a few times I really shouldn't have. My decision making is off, I've completely forgotten how to play maps (or game types), and my grenade abysmal.

You'll also notice I stayed clear of vehicles. I haven't been able to figure out what my issue is under the new awful controls but I suspect my left thumb might be trying to steer, really screwing my camera view. That or the right stick controls both turning and camera, at which point I want to commit suicide.

Even just firing a turret feels weird.

The fact that I had enough time away that it was feasible. My instincts were going to be confused coming back from GTA, my reflexes would be (and are) dull, I'm going to be shitty, why not retrain myself?

I attempted to pick up Bumper Jumper too, but in the end I wasn't completely enthused with it. It's lacks a certain intuitively which isn't completely absent from Default.

I played Halo 2 over the weekend since I was somewhere in the third world where original xbox is the only game in town.

Even using a different controller threw me off like crazy, sniping was like watching someone with cerebral palsy try to write calligraphy.

i wonder what thats supposed to mean...
welcome back dakar, welcome back

good times last night geeks, its been a long time.

3 of the 4 NN'ers (i think Dakar is up in the tower above the ferris wheel)


(has anyone else tried the zooming (clicking in thumbstick) while taking screenshots, i like it)

Epic Fail
As the game comes to a close with the win already in stone, i attack Dakar for what seems like 10mins with absolutely no success of a betrayal.

Last night was fun... well at least the first match. I lost my internet connection towards the beginning of the second match. By the time I was able to reboot my cable modem & router, Venture Bros was about to begin.

I might play tonight, we'll see if the draw of Dakar is strong enough.

My draw has probably faded as much as my Halo skills during the absence.

If I do play you can count on betrayals and tea-bags.

Dammit.. I was going to post a screenshot of my Killamanjaro but there's a huge chunk of the saved game missing when I play it back in the theater.

Last night was fun. I finally got my gold bars.

Funny you should mention that. That 2 day old screenshot fooled me when I viewed it on the iPhone. I was like, "WTF! I just charged this thing a hour ago!" Completely forgot that pictures are displayed in full screen.

Tonight is whiskey night with the boys, if my g/f wants to drive my annoyingly drunk ass home then I might join you.

If not tomorrow night would be perfect for me.

I'm guilty of trying to click on windows in a screenshot I open in Preview when I leave the computer and come back some time later.
