L4D2: Modern Warfare 2 Vacant Survival

“Nah, they’re probably just part of the background.”

This is a short clip from one of the first games myself and David played the other night in Left 4 Dead 2. The map is a remake of the Modern Warfare 2 map Vacant and any MW2 players will immediately recognise it.

Music is Scary Tale in Olde York by the Surf Sluts.

TyeWebb’s recording of a later campaign game in the Carnival with me and David. I think this map is paid-for DLC on Xbox but comes free with the game on PC and Mac. I presume it’s one of those “DLC we had to charge for on Xbox” that Valve complained about. Then how did DICE release Map Pack 7 for free then? Did they swallow the money Microsoft charged them to release that patch?

Circle Strafing on Oasis

This is a preview of a Bad Company 2 gameplay video I’ll be uploading next week. I just wanted to show that it is possible for anyone to circle strafe in a helicopter. It just takes a bit of practice!

Thanks Killerbelf and Redd_dragons for getting in the helicopter with me, and to Muddledmuppet who joined us later!

L4D2 Shenanigans

Just a bit of fun on Left 4 Dead 2 with Duck, DOD and Conor on Xbox. I’ve played survival mode with randoms and some of the campaign levels with friends but I must try some more of those modes with friends. I’d love to try recording our team chat through Skype too if anyone’s up for it?

I discovered l4dmaps.com too. You can download lots of new maps there, but that’s PC only of course.

Oh, if you’re reading this on the blog or your your feed reader, please click through to Youtube and give the video a thumbs up will you? Have to keep the witch happy….


And if you’re a fan of “The Hangover” you’ll like this parody!

Bad Company 2 Oasis Helicopter Rage

This is 5 minutes out of a very long 49 minute Bad Company 2 game I played with Duck and DrunkinDunkin on one base on Oasis. I wasn’t in the helicopter, a player with over 6000 helicopter kills was piloting it and tore up our defenses. Thankfully the rest of his team weren’t so good. 🙂

I’d love to hear if you have any tips for Oasis. It’s one map I really have rarely done well in. I think it was Cards or gt who tweeted that he gets on to the AA gun before any blueberries get there to take down any incoming helicopters. Could have done with your help in this game!

PS. Check out the first episode of DON’T REVIVE ME BRO! podcast!

I joined Dvotee and TheFingersHurt on Xb…

I joined Dvotee and TheFingersHurt on Xbox tonight for Bad Company 2 Vietnam but unfortunately TheFingersHurt got kicked off by his lousy Internet connection after about 5 minutes of play.

After that it was Dvotee and myself for a while, and every single game we joined was a losing one! They were games of conquest and our team would almost always be down to it’s last legs:

Starting Tickets Ending Tickets
18-101 0-48
69-157 0-56

So we helped turn the tide but not fast enough and we were out manned a number of times and never had a full game.

Our final game was rush and we were 8 against 10 with 5 members of the SNV clan on the other side. I was defending one crate when I was literally bombarded with bullets and grenades. It’s recorded, hopefully it’ll make a good and hectic clip!
Thanks Coyno for joining us for that game. Sorry we lost!

Finally, after reading this I decided to try marksmen LMG training and the same perk on the engineer’s kit and I think it helped. The “infinite ammo” of LMGs helped too! 🙂

The Triple Dees: David, Duck and Donncha

David posted this video earlier today. It’s a triple commentary by himself, Duck and me and I have to say it was the most enjoyable commentary I’ve ever recorded!

Thanks David for doing the editing and recording bits! It was a lot of fun and something I’d love to do again.

I joined a private match organised by Nick and others last night. Boy, were they tough games! Nick was a busy bee doing admin work but I have no excuse. I was simply outplayed by Cards and everyone else. Even Conor, who normally does quite well felt the pressure and we departed our last game, me with a KDR of 0-9. Ouch. I appreciate the invite, but I probably shouldn’t have joined!

Still, got some good clips, hope to have them uploaded in the next few days.

I wish I hadn’t played Bad Company 2 Vi…

I wish I hadn’t played Bad Company 2 Vietnam on PC first.

I had a very quick 5 minute game with TheFingersHurt on Phu Bai (say that in Cork and they’ll think you’re a local commenting on a nasty smell.. “The smell of that pooh, bai. It’s terrible!”)
Anyway, I got slaughtered as we joined a game of Conquest where we got overrun 110-0.

Still, back on topic. Over the weekend I played Bad Company 2 for the first time on PC and struggled with it but admired the gorgeous graphics. I didn’t think they were that much different to that on the consoles but now having played Vietnam on Xbox I’ve changed my mind. Maybe it was because I was so used to the graphics I didn’t notice, but since Vietnam is all new I certainly did on those maps. Now I know what PC owners say when they say games recorded from consoles look muddy.

Golly. I need to lie down.

Success at BfBC2 on PC?

Well, this was a turn up for the books! I hopped on to a BfBC2 server that had the text “noob” in it’s title to find a game on Heavy Metal and then Harvest and I did well! I even shot a Black Hawk out of the sky with a tank shell!

I’m sure it’s a fluke, but I’ll still celebrate success!
