Couple of games of WAW with Conor to start with and I had a few half decent games. Got a few double kills, and even earned the recon plane once. Lots of trash talking in the lobbies of course. If I’m playing it without anyone on my friends list I’m going to set the VOIP volume to 0 so I don’t have to hear all that crap.
We followed that up with a coop campaign game, and were joined by 2 others. One of whom sounded like a 12 yro and kept saying, “follow me, I know where the ray gun is!” He got that ray gun of course.
The MP40 with Juggernaut is a beast of a combination and I know I wasn’t the only one using it! The distinctive sound of that gun is easy to make out..
Blur finally as David said they were trying to get some footage for Duck. We joined very late and I only had one game. Conor and I came last and second last. I really don’t think Blur is going to be part of my regular gaming.
Great Bad Company 2 triple commentary by Cards, David and Colin on a game we played 2 weeks ago. What sets this triple commentary apart from others is that I was playing too!
No, that’s not it. David’s editing of the video takes this format to a higher level. In other multi-video commentaries I’ve watched the producer will show the videos of all participants on the screen, one in each corner and I’m left wondering, “Who the hell do I watch? I’m not going to watch each little box! Watch this video 4 times? Screw that!” No, David zoomed in and out of his and Cards’ videos as action took place. It’s a simple trick but takes time to do well and he took that time. Nice work.
PS. Cards says the most powerful class in WAW is the following:
Heed his warning never use it again once you get good at the game! 🙂
Something’s wrong here. I played a few games of Blur yesterday evening and I didn’t come last. I was even beating Ducky for a while too! Yes, he caught up and overtook me eventually but that’s not the point! 🙂
Well, that was fun. Blur that is. Despite suffering from selective amnesia, I built up my series of 1st place wins in Blur, beating Ducky by a huge margin each time. Poor guy. David did really well too, we basically shared the 1st and 2nd places in each race! (*)
(*) The above may or may not be true, but much fun was had nevertheless.
For a more accurate record of what happened, read David’s post. 🙂
I played a few games of the Blur demo with David, Mike, Tye, and Duck (nice to hear the Cork accent!) and while I did good and bad it was great fun. Getting the hang of the power ups really helps. I lost count of the number of times I shot down a fireball (shock?) right behind me!
Last race was a ball. I broke Duck’s winning streak of 9 wins! Somehow he managed to avoid two fireballs fired backwards at him even though he was on my tail, but I think I hit him with the smaller pink projectiles! 🙂
Will I buy the full game? Maybe. If the rest of the guys buy it I probably will. It’s obviously most fun played against friends than against random strangers, especially when everyone has a mic. The one thing that worries me is longevity. It’s only racing after all but I suspect we’ll have a lot of fun with it before it gets boring.
Here’s a review in case you’ve never heard of the game.

I got my Blur multiplayer beta code the other day. Haven’t tried it yet but this review promises an interesting game!
Overall, it feels like a cross between Project Gotham Racing mixed with Mario Kart, with just a bit of the Burnout destruction mixed in.
