    Here is the trailer for the new remake of Evil Dead. With Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell working on this, you know it should be good. Fair warning though, the trailer by itself has more gore than the old cult classic movies.

    I ran across this and thought it was pretty neat.

    Good kills! I'll definitely get that long barrel attachment. Your shotgun was getting huge distance kills. That FAL looks like it takes ppl down quick. BTW, I noticed you do a lot of crouching while most ppl just stand there getting shot. Are you using a different button setup from the default? I need to see if I can change mine on the ps3. Pushing down on the right analog stick does a melee attack, but on bf3 its for crouching and going prone. I've died so many times on bf3 crouching repeatedly at some guy while he shoots me in the face.
     
    On the ps3 the crouch is the circle button which means you have to stop aiming to hit the damn crouch with your right thumb which screws up any real dodging in the game. So most ppl all just strafe left and right to dodge.
     
    Most of the rounds I've played have been decent and mostly balanced, but I've come across a handful of matches where ppl on the opposite team must have been boosting score streaks by having someone on my team constantly spawning a split screen user for them to kill repeatedly. I never watched those matches to confirm my suspicions, but it must have been happening because those matches go ridiculously one sided. Those matches would be so bad that when I spawn I would get instant killed by a lightening strike that was done by the same guy that just killed me moments before by a hellstorm missle.
     
    I looked into a bit and even found message boards dedicated to people that want to request boosting partners to meet in game for multiple rounds of bullshitty one sided dominance.
     
    Thankfully I've only come across a few rounds like that so far and I usually quit out of them when I've get killed killed 3 or 4 times in a row by streak bonus kills.
     
    I need to look at the game to see how to upload some of my own videos. Maybe I'll try that out this weekend.

    Go to button layout and switch to Tactical, it will change the crouch to stick and melee to circle... Or it should, that's what it does the equivalent of on Xbox. I hate stick melee. Crouch is vital to taking cover, and lines up a more accurate shot at longer distances since you move at a slower rate. I also reload after every kill if I feel it's safe to do so. Since the slight of hand perk is gone, and fast mag isn't anywhere near as fast I do it a lot less than I used to.
    Yeah every cod has boosters. I've only caught them once tact inserting in a room and headshoting each other. Ended up as a free kill for me.

    With the long barrel attachment, I'd say its on par with MW's SPAS-12, maybe a little more, but there is no slight of hand, and the fast mag attachment doesn't speed up your pump action so if you run into more than 1 person, you might take them both, 3 you'll die. It's the most handy camper killer in the game.
    The game has its issues, like the 1 sniper rifle that you can shoot as fast as a m4 with zero recoil, but it's worth red boxing Strider. Black Ops 1 was pretty good, MW3 was so bad, I wouldn't be playing this game if I didn't get it as a gift. It seems Treyarch makes a better COD now. I'm having a bit of fun. I rarely get kill streaks but I still pull off matches like 23-9, 15-3, etc. in fact there are hardly ever any score streaks spamming the map, unless you play demolition. They set the lowest to the equivalent of 4 kills, and you only get 25 points for score streak kills, so it's really difficult if not impossible for one to lead to another without more kills.

    With sniper rifles thats ALWAYS been the case since MW2... its absurd when you watch the air bleed next to the body. I wish they'd fix that. The poor hit detection is what fuels no scoping.
     
    Another R870 run on Standoff

     
    R870/Chicom CQB on Drone - I took 3 kills out because they were lag kills. lol

     
    FAL Target finder fun.



    I have a better FAL video I'll upload later. Hopefully the audio will stay synced. It seems when you go over 1:15, everyone has been having issues with audio.

    Holy crap whats the range on those shotguns cause you were pulling some pretty far away kills with it? Nice videos btw
     
    So this explains why I haven't seen you on Halo in awhile, been playing the COD. Got a friend trying to talk me into buying this and watching those vids makes me miss my old COD days (not that much mind you, I never got into multiplayer for BO1 and MW2 turned me away from multiplayer to begin with).

    Another thing is that COD's controller sensitivity is very low by default.... even lower than previous games or they just use a different scare. I turned mine up a few notches.. that might help you a bit if you haven't already. I have similar stick sensitivity for BF3.. I think I run on 6 on COD and 8 on BF. I can't do the super high sensitivities like a lot of those "pro players", but I check corners while ADS quite a bit, so I need the faster motion in that aspect.
     
    I forgot to mention If you have anything less than a full green connection, avoid the FAL! Its a monster, but any hint of lag will screw you so bad vs. any SMG. Its like that for the SWAT-556 too. Any semi auto-fire tends to be at a huge disadvantage with a mediocre connection. Surprisingly I'm rarely ever in the yellow in this game. The R870 is a different story. One of my kills on that video is a full blown lag kill at around 45 seconds. The dude was clearly to the left of me running the opposite direction when I fired off a shot and he still died. If we would have had a good host, I would have missed and who knows what would have happened.... its whoever turns around the quickest. lol
     
    I usually use the FAL on Slums, Raid, Yemen, Meltdown and sometimes Hijacked. When people get to camp happy on the upper levels of Hijacked, I break out the LMG with FMJs and shoot the walls up. Slums is the perfect map because everyone camps in that freaking room next to the circular courtyard. I'll toss a betty on one side of the vehicle that is sitting on an alleyway and prone on the other side of it for a bit because someone is always going to pop their head out of the opening.

    The audio is more synced on these... I guess because they are shorter.
     
    A little run with the FAL and B23R.

    Yeah I've seen that . The RC-X/D is weird since you use the joysticks to drive... Thanks to my friend finding out first. I've never blown myself up with one seeing as all traditional racers use the trigger buttons for acceleration.
     
    Here is a video... COD's uploader blows so the sound is way off.

    I don't use any of those things. The crossbow is just a cheap way to get a kill, most of the time you will be killed as soon as you stick someone. I use EMP grenades. They take out sentry guns, and other equipment, and you get good points for doing it.

    I run with 3 main classes depending on the map.

    Medium/Large Maps
    Primary: QBB LSW with EOTech optic and foregrip
    Secondary: B23R with no attachments
    Perk 1: Lightweight
    Perk 2: Coldblooded
    Perk 3: Dexterity + Engineer (Greed 3 wildcard)
    Lethal: Bouncing Betty
    Tactical: None

    Once I get FMJ's will probalby drop Greed 3 and use Primary Gunfighter use it with the EOTech and foregrip

    Small Maps/Indoor
    Primary: R870 MCS with Long Barrel
    Secondary: PDW-57 with no attachments (overkill wildcard)
    Perk 1: Lightweight
    Perk 2: Fast Hands
    Perk 3: Engineer
    Lethal: Semtex
    Tactical: 1 EMP grenade
     
    Large Maps/Medium wide open
    Primary: FAL OSW with Quickdraw and Foregrip
    Secondary: B23R with no attachments
    Perk 1: Hardline
    Perk 2: Cold Blooded
    Perk 3: Engineer
    Lethal: Bouncing Betty
    Tactical: 1 EMP grenade

    The FAL is a good gun if you can deal with semi-auto until you get selective fire. 3 shots in the chest should put anyone down. If you're fast on the trigger, I recommend it due to its high damage per shot. I was the suppressor king in previous CODs, but for some reason it seems to significantly reduce damage in this game. In previous games it was just range and accuracy. Once I unlock Ghost and get full auto for the FAL I will be running it with a suppressor and probably use a greed wildcard to have Blind Eye, Cold Blooded, and Ghost all at once. The FAL has one of the best iron sights I've seen. I am waiting on the SCAR though, so I may have a change of heart when I unlock it.  The B23R is by far one of the better secondaries. I haven't used the full auto pistol yet, and the revolver sucks flat out.

    Oh and the Vector:




     
  12. DeathscytheX liked a post in a topic by Sledgstone in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2   
    Is anyone here playing this game? I got it for PS3 because I have brother and 2 other friends playing it. That and I wanted to play the zombie mode. I think Battlefield 3 is a superior game tho. There is hardly any recoil to these guns, the aim assist seems very generous and I've killed quite a few ppl with nothing but leg shots. Overall tho, it seems pretty fun for quick matches and Kill Confirmed is a nice change to the classic Team death match.

    *edited*

    Wow, the vector sounds like a beefed up tommy gun! i'll have to look it up later.
     
    I can see the LSAT being useful on an objective based game. I've killed quite a few ppl with smgs while playing rush. The LSAT is horrible on CQD, with nowhere to really bipod its a pain in the ass. As for the Pecheneg, it probably sucks, but I got used to it because of the assignment for it. With an extended mag, it can shred thru ppl, even on close quarters.
     
    Its like the SKS sniper rifle. I thought it was horrible at first until I started getting the 100 kills for it's assignment. Turns out if you put a laser sight on it and run around the close quarters maps shooting from the hip as fast as your finger can fire, it is beastly.
  14. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by DeathscytheX in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2   
    Ah, I have the foregrip for the LSAT and M249 which makes it like having a bipod at all times, the Pecheneg's damage leaves much to be desired for me. The QBB-95 handles like an assault rifle with LMG mag capacity. It's probably the most versitle firearm in the game. It reminds me a lot of the AUG H-BAR in MW2.
    I've turned to using the overkill wildcard on Black Ops II. I use the PDW and Remington 870 along with fast hands to swap them out from outdoor to indoor. The 870 is a one shot kill at close to semi-mid range. Everyone is a SMG whore it seems and assault rifles just don't cut it on maps that have a lot of indoor locations.
  15. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by DeathscytheX in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2   
    Its not as of right now, but if they are adding weapons with DLC, who knows? There are only 4 LMGs in the game, so I'd imagine they'd release some more.
     
    MG36 is a beast in BF3, but BF3 goes for realism, while COD makes an "attempt" at balance. Guns don't always translate from game to game. For instance the F2000 in MW2 was a pile of garbage. It fired just as fast but had the range of a shotgun. You'll probably never see the Vector in BF3, becasue if they made it legit in COD, that's all anyone would ever use. The Vector, aka KRISS Super V, is a SMG that fires .45ACP with virtually no recoil. .45 is a massive round and would kill anything in 1-2 rounds... yet in game it feels like you're shooting .22 or .380 out of it.

    I see you're problem now with the LSAT. I never play TDM in BF3, I play only Rush, CQD, and Conquest. I tend to stay away from LMGs altogether on any CQC map, I generally use them on Rush for suppressing fire on a bomb site. But if I do use them, its normally the MG36 or the QBB-95. (Oddly enough I started using the QBB-LSW in black ops and like it more than the LSAT)

    I don't like the PKP Pecheneg, its not that its bad, but it definitely was not an upgrade over the M249 IMO. I ended up sticking with that until the QBB-95 was released.

    I ended up getting it for Christmas. My observations so far:

    Maps:
    I like Drone, Hijacked, and Carrier, the rest are meh... Meltdown looks like they took Launch from BO1, cut the top off the silo, and filled it in with concrete.

    Weapons:
    I like how the assault rifles are king again. the SWAT-556 is as close to MW1's M16 as you can get, the FAL is awesome too... the SMGs aren't that great outside of the Skorpion EVO. I like the LSAT LMG... sniper rifles are insanely overpowered, and I hate that quick scoping is back. Luckily, Kill Confirmed tends to weed out those type of players.

    Scorestreaks:
    Meh... I'm mixed on this. I like how they are watered down, and its really hard to get into the higher streaks... the score thing was a good idea but It gets kinda silly when most things are based in 100s and 50s, and you have perks like hardline that reduces it to odd numbers in between that, and score streaks that also meet in between. I can't complain too much, I like how kill streaks aren't insanely overpowered and gun play is more vital.

    Perks:
    Thank god no pro-perks. Camping with ghost still making you pop up on UVA is the best idea in COD history. Hardline leaves much to be desired even though I never really used it in previous games. The main thing I like is that normal abilities haven't been hampered to make you rely on perks for basic functionality like MW3 tried to do. You ADS and reload at respectable rates, but sprinting has been handicapped pretty badly to where extreme conditioning isn't much of an improvement.

    Create A Class
    I respect the attempt at something new. I like it, but i still think it has its shortcomings. I hate having to give up a pistol for an attachment on my primary. They've took a lot of cues from BF3 in this aspect, but added their own twist to it. While you can have up to any 3 attachments you want (as opposed to 3 attachments limited between 3 categories in BF3), it will cost you in other areas. Its neat that you don't even have to use perks, but I tend to take the cheap way out and remove my non-lethal grenades.

    Unlock Tokens:
    This is a disappointment. This is a step back from the money system IMO. Unlock tokens give you a choice to unlock what you want, but unlike in Black Ops 1, you still have to rank up to unlock weapons... to unlock. I liked the freedom to buy what ever I liked from the start in the previous game. It doesn't bother me that you have to rank up to unlock weapons traditionally, it just seems silly to rank up to unlock locked weapons. Permanent unlock tokens are the only neat thing about this system.

    Wildcards: Now this is pretty cool. I do like using more than 1 perk in a tier. The greed cards are what ill end up using mostly, the others are sorta recycled perks that didn't belong as perks in previous games, but fit nicely at wildcards.
     
    All in all, its not a terrible game. Its definitely not as inexcusably horrid as MW3 was, but not as great as MW1 was. I like that Treyarch tried something new, maybe they is hope for the COD series in the future.

    I'd like to see a new Saints Row on the next gen systems. I never was a big fan of the later GTA's the driving was a hassle at times. Saints Row the Third was a blast, I haven't had so much fun driving in a game since Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for PS1. The story was pretty neat, but the main missions were kinda lacking. The Assassinations were fun when as they got more complex, and I loved the insurance fraud mini games. X'D
