    It almost feels too little too late. But come fall of this year I'll be eagerly anticipating what ever they decide the next one will be, regardless of trends they seem to be following. Sure all of this would be nice, but it's nothing but wishful thinking, and that's sad.

    COD... BF4... yup that's about it for me. And I'm not even really looking forward to them.

    Also, that you have to get 700 score to suddenly realize you have a tablet to call in destruction.

    Another really common one is that any sniper round can pierce multiple enemy's up to 6 I believe... but still takes two to shatter glass.

  • posted a message on These were my Top 5 Shooters of the year, what were yours?

    I'm pretty disappointed with the shooters of 2012, I can't think of one that's worth the #1 slot in my mind. But I guess I have high standards... and I haven't played them all. Desperately need to play more Borderlands 2, only got a few missions into it, as well as Far Cry 3 and of course Natural Selection 2. Maybe my opinion will change once I sink my teeth into them. I'm more for a good multiplayer experience though, and I don't play on consoles so Halo is out of the question. Nothing clicks with me, the last shooter I really enjoyed was MW2 and CSS before that. Kind of annoyed about it, I keep getting my hopes up for a game that will win me over, like PS2 or Bo2 but they all fall flat in my eyes.

    No piticular order, my top 5 contenders would be:

    Black Ops 2

    Borderlands 2

    Tribes Ascend

    CS:GO (I guess)

    I seriously can't even think of a 5th for this list. Nothing worth my time.

    One thing that I sorely regret with my personal channel is the Name I used. Given the chance I would go back in time and change it to something people would remember that isn't complicated and doesn't have numbers. I would do that before you get attached to it, if your serious about this.

    You'll never get better if all you do is trash bots. But you need to have tough skin online, a lot of people don't take kind to newbs ruining their experience. Not to say that you will, just that's what they will think. Equip a launcher and shoot down all the uav's and other air support, use flak jacket and Tactical mask when you unlock them and jump on the objectives after every death and I'm sure you'll top the lobby with a higher score than most.
