    Are you the HD version of Gribble?

    Lol, someone mentioned this same thing about a year ago.

    on 14 February 2016

    I have a version with the smile turned into a frown. Maybe I should go with that,

    Sorry, my phone won't allow me to post on comments. It is really surprising that a COD has that much content. Impressive. Glad your about done!

    Well...not sure I would call it that much content.

    To get my money's worth, I play though on every difficulty level. That means this is my forth (and final) play-through.

    It is a different experience on the harder difficulty levels. I don't think I really understood the second to last level until this last play-through.

    At the last checkpoint you are assaulting a building, and eventually trigger a set-piece. On the easier difficulties, it is really easy to just run up close, take cover, and occasionally pot shot some enemies. On the hardest difficulty, I finally understood the need for the sniper rifle and rocket launcher you can find laying around, and the different cover available. That stuff just wasn't needed before, and now I understand the way the level was meant to be played. I also figured out what exactly triggers the set piece (I think).

    Same thing with the last level on the second hardest difficulty. There is a section on the parliament floor. I mostly just killed people on the easier difficulties. On the second hardest difficulty, I figured out exactly who to target to move the objectives along.

    Granted, a lot of the harder difficult only stems from the waves of grenades that the enemies throw right on top of your head even if they shouldn't be able to see you. And their crazy accuracy and reaction speed. And the fact that they all seem to wear crazy good body armor. It is unbelievable the number of times I put a rifle bullet into someone's chest, and instead of acting like they got shot, they just take aim and near insta-kill me instead. So that part of the game just kind of sucks.

    Only the last level to go.

    Sweet! How many hours did you put into it?

    on 08 December 2015

    Without that Wii Channel that accumulated your game data, it is tough to know for sure. I think I was around 60 hours for Modern Warfare, but I played some multiplayer on that game. Maybe 40-50 hours?

    on 11 December 2015

    At the last checkpoint of the last level now. Almost done.

    Season's greetings! I would like to personally invite you to join this year's PC Secret Santa event, thread link below. Please drop by and help us make this holiday season a bit more merry for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Thanks for the invite. I am going to pass, as my PC still sucks.

    That's why we're doing GOG too; you can totally run a 90's or mid-2000's game!

    on 30 November 2015

    Hmm, I will think about it. My current rig is 10 years old with only a handful of upgrades. So mid-2000's would probably be my limit!

    That's all I ask! :-)

    Amiibo is the worst thing to happen this generation

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 March 2016

    BraLoD said: theRepublic said: Skylanders pretty much started this whole thing.  Nintendo saw how successful it was, saw how it could easily fit in with their very popular mascot characters, and copied how it worked.  You want to blame someone for this, blame Activision.  And blame them for starting it last generation. Don't even try and deny it.  Even Disney...

    Ugh, sad. I really think it deserved to sell more than the GameCube, but I am only one person....

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 March 2016

    BraLoD said: theRepublic said: The worst thing this generation? No, wrong on two counts. First, as others have pointed out, their has been plenty of worse business practices this generation so far. Second, and I don't think anyone else mentioned this yet, but it didn't even start this generation. Amiibo are Nintendo's copycat version of Activision's Skylanders. Skylanders...
