Also, if you're looking for a quality cheap game, buy Mount and Blade: Warband. That game is the ****.
I couldn't agree more. I still think Socom II was the best game I have ever played to this day.

Socom, now there's a game I'd forgotten about. Such a terrific, under-appreciated, and short-lived franchise.

I have yet to see a game, to this day, challenge me as much as Pegasus Bridge from CoD1 or excite me as much as some of the finales in the original Halo.

Again, maybe it's just me, but modern day gaming, with all the advancements in graphics and internet technology since the PS2 era, seems to be more about style and flair over substance. About letting people entertain each other online rather then taking the time to develop and engrossing single player. Or about ripping you off with new DLCs.

Everything just seems to have a focus on Hollywood-style appeal (like the new installments of the CoD franchise) or lazily just setting up a multiplayer system to let players entertain each other rather then developers challenging themselves to create both a single player and multiplayer that will capture the player.

Remember, Confrontation was not made by Zipper Inc. But yeah, it's going to be sweet. I used to play SOCOM II all the time online, probably the first game I played online (maybe Timesplitters Future Perfect first) for a console. Loved it. Thermal scope on a sniper rifle = fun times.

Ahh didn't know that, its been a long time since a socom game came out.

It was originally suppose to come out this year, but I guess they pushed the date back to January. This one kid my brother knows got to test it out and he said its really awesome, hopefully it is. Couldnt tell you how many all nighters were pulled playing socom II online.

ITT you will find triqsix making baseless assumptions.

I've always been pretty good at gaming. I just find games today to be more about flash and style rather then substance.

Why is it that 90% of Left 4 Dead players are ****ing morons and can't seem to grasp the concept of TEAM MOTHER ****ING SURVIVAL.

Good to know.

The biggest problem they have is the split screeners. People will come into a game playing split screen. If they decide to be dicks and screw you over, you can't boot them because you need a majority vote of 4 people to boot them. Really they need to just count together as 1 vote, that way if they're being dicks the other 2 can boot them.

And nope...Xbox.

Your problem is that you're playing on the X-Box.

Nothing better then playing L4D2 on Steam Group Servers in 10 vs 10 Versus. =P

L4D2 is not that demanding. That is why you can change graphically settings. Just saying, that's all.

So, I picked up Black Ops last Friday. I'm happy with it so far and I haven't touched Zombies or Campaign. Looking forward to getting some Zombie multiplayer games in at some point though.

I've been playing mostly Team Deathmatch and Domination so far. Just unlocked the Galil. Can't decide between the Galil or the Famas though.

I picked up Black Ops this past Friday. Liking it so far and I haven't even played Zombies or Campaign.

Can't decide between the Galil or the Famas. (Only Level 21 or something right now).

Also, motion sensor FTW!

Double double post FTW!

I like the Famas, personally. Though, I'm playing with the Galil right now just to get some more XP out of the gun. About to prestige, though... so will be back on the Famas in short order.

The G11 is unreal if you like 3-round burst guns.
