Playing defensively in Modern Warfare 2 …

Playing defensively in Modern Warfare 2 is a lot easier than running and gunning. Sometimes after an intense game of knifing and running around I’ll stand up and my legs will be shaking, with my stomach in knots.

I mix it up and run and gun but a little more carefully now. A lot less stressful! Here’s a good guide to playing defensively. Definitely worth trying every now and again when things get crazy.

Hmm, lots of updates today, mostly catching up on stuff I read during the week.

Running and gunning in Favela in MW2

Since David posted a video a while back I might as well post this one here.

This game is from January 18th, shot on a Flip Mino on a tripod as I sat slightly to the side. I was wearing headphones so no sound except my occasional grunts and curses. I edited out the bit at the end where I stood up too quickly and knocked over the tripod. 🙂

Oh, and I can’t believe I missed that guy lying on the ground. I stunned him but thought someone else had finished off the job as he wasn’t moving.

Ok, so Commando gives you a longer lunge…

Ok, so Commando gives you a longer lunge when knifing. I wasn’t sure just how far it was until I read this post and saw this video and the other one David linked to. Amazing.

Should it be removed? Hell no. Equip yourself with a shotgun and if you’re in close quarters use that instead of your primary weapon. Either that or don’t stay in the one corner.

Happy Modern Warfare 2 Day

November 10th is here and Modern Warfare 2 is finally out! Shops here in Ireland opened at midnight last night and I briefly thought about hopping down to the Gamestop in Blackpool. I didn’t, and I won’t buy it until I have my BarCamp Cork talk is done. That should ensure I have it written by tonight!

Anyway, the level of anticipation for this game reached astronomical levels. Ask anyone with a game console or PC games player and they’ll know about this game. I’m writing this to remind myself of the fact when the next big thing comes along! In five year’s time we’ll be laughing at how we were all swept up in the hype of the game.

So, did you queue last night at midnight to buy the game? Have you already finished it? I’m pretty sure it’ll take me a lot longer to finish than ShadowHearth reported in that thread above.

So its 6:24 and i beated game on veteran setting.

Loved it, in some places i whanted to cry… becouse of just being pwned like a little girl, and on athers places becouse of story…

Just loved it, going to try multiplayer now, untill mine misses wakes up and sees me still on pc… I will get killed.
