No. I don't have a capture card.

Go here: http://www.callofduty.com/login?

Setup your profile and then go to theatre and link your Cal Of Duty and Youtube profile.

Then go to Theatre mode within the Xbox Live settings of Black Ops. Open a clip and record or compile up to a massive 30 seconds of awesomeness and upload it.
Then go back in to Theatre mode and select the new short clip for viewing but don't view it, instead click render. It will take a little bit of time but it will then send the rendered clip to youtube for you.

Are you playing PS3 or 360, Mr. John?

Cool.

Some really good games on the horizon. Ghost Recon in spring/summer, Skyrim in November, X-com looks interesting and the new DEUS EX game is going to be very good.

Just played the Crysis 2 demo last night. A bit good. I'll pick that up.

We've just got Mass Effect 2 on PS3, that and halo were my "regrets" when I switched from X to PS3. Need to tuck into the demo for that.

But yeah, I fancy Crysis2 too. Toto.

On Thursday was online with my brother and this happened:

One guy get's to last stand and takes out his assailant. Three of his team mates try to rescue him. God hated them all. :lol:

Last night I got crushed by someone's care package, I lauged out loud, the cat leapt off my lap and now I have a shredded inner thigh.

Well, this is only recent for me.

With my new fancy shmancy upgrades (gtx460 and another 2gig of ram - still running what is, at 4 years old an outdated processor and mobo) I can now enjoy (even on Linux!) Fallout 3. I have some relearnin' to do with this one having never been much of an RPG'er. I know my right answer / wrong answer adventure gaming all too well, but that obviously doesn't apply. I just decided to stop for the night because I stole some noodles and was shot to death.

What the fuck, Right?!

...Reading that last part back reminds me of a friend's recent conversation with his dad...

(dad is heading out to the pub on a Friday)
Dad: What are you up to tonight.
(Friend is playing Syberia)
Friend: Oh, I've just been walking around this town trying to find a notary public to sign some documents for me.
Dad: ....
Friend: Please don't tell your friends how I live my life.

Mmmm Fallout.

*rubs belly*

Have there been any packs for 'Vegas yet? Because I loved 3, but Vegas, even though it is more fun in hardcore mode, is not as good. I might trade 'Vegas in.

I love hacking an enemy's care package (hacker pro) and then standing back and hiding to watch the fun.

Crysis 2 is so much fun. Don't play it on any skill level except the hardest and it's far more of an experience.

Damn! You're quick off the mark.

Many cut scenes?
Decent action?
Playability?

I got mine Thursday, finished it yesterday morning on veteran difficulty.

I have to say I really, really enjoyed it. The graphics were the main hype point for the game and they live up to that hype, reviews for the game has criticised the AI and the Alien design but I feel that some are being hyper critical.

Crytek had advised prior to this release that the AI was the most advanced in a video game yet, personally I feel that Halo Reach's AI on outshines Crysis 2 that said the AI is on the whole shocking but still has it's pluses. What I can say is that enemies do hunt you down and use co-ordination and comms. If they feel there's a threat or if they feel isolated they will release flares call for reinforcements, while they are waiting they'll bunker down and hold tight. Only when they have swollen numbers do they seem to sweep and hunt for you. You can hear them communicate and they react to each others comms which is fantastic. A nice touch is if you have an overview of a map with multiple enemies and are cloaked, hit a silenced shot on a far away barrel, the explosion sets off a chain of events where the majority of the enemies will abandon their positions to to hunt out the cause of the disturbance. The enemies switch off too easily after you hit stealth mode though. You can ping a mate in the head and they'll give up searching too easily, they often run into walls, each other and circle aimlessly which for me at the moment is a major bugbear.

The alien design I felt was strong, though some of the larger enemies were too reminiscent of the those big bastards from Halo. The game borrows extensively from Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, where gunplay and the tactical side is concerned and there are huge elements of Halo and Half Life 2 as well. The aliens are very Halo-esque and the balance of armour and stealth is almost the same as Halo 2 and 3's use of the Arbitor Elite. Shadow and light play a crucial role in this as even if ou don't have energy for the active camo, you can still sneak around. The human enemies behave and sound very much like the human enemies in Half-Life 2 and many of the street levels and the FDR level in particular seem to be either a not very subtle homage or plain rip off of some of the levels from HL2. Everything borrowed works well and everything borrowed were the things which appealed to me in those games, this coalition of ideas is a huge plus or me.

I loved how cinematic the game was and with dolby digital and decent sub this was an excellent and immersive experience, I found myself saying "holy-shit" on several occasions. Multiplayer wise the gameplay doesn't stray far from the Modern Warfare/Black Ops formula but it's tried and tested so why fix something that's isn't broke. As with games of this ilk you really can't play it on standard difficulty or else you'll get a warped perception of the game - I feel this factor has been the undoing of Halo: Reach for quite a few players of the game. The veteran difficulty on this wasn't that tough, though I did get snagged occasionally but you'd expect a reasonable challenge.

Two bugs surfaced during my Campaign, the first was on the second stage "Sudden Impact" where the game froze the Xbox completely. Resuming from the save state repeated the problem which meant you'd have to start the mission again. Crytek are aware of this and is set to patch this week. The other bug is increasing title music volume in multiplayer. The title music on it's second look increases in volume. If you leave it loop to reply it gets a little louder and so forth. In the end it's so loud that the sound distorts no matter how low you have your volume. I'm not sure if they're aware of that problem - how many people leave their games on idle at the title menu for prolonged periods?

I've gone back in on Supersoldier difficulty and have completed missions 3 and 4 on that difficulty without too many problems. The game has a huge flaw in it's AI but even this doesn't stop the game being one of the better FPS in a while. It's probably the most spectacular game I've played for some time.

Multiplayer is causing an issue at the moment as EA allegedly have not designated dedicated servers, so hosts for multiplayer games have a huge advantage. This is expected to change but who knows if it will.

Nice review, thank you.
:)

I just ordered my next PC, so might get this on that, instead of console. I still have moments of aiming frustration with an analogue joypad.
:roll:

I picked up the Squier guitar for Rock Band 3 today.

That game has seriously raised the bar for all music games.

Portal 2, guys

I'd tell you about it but there's more testing to do.

It's simply excellent Mitch. I forgot I had the first portal and played it to finish yesterday. What a great little game and the end credit sequence is the best ever. I cannot understate how great these two games are.
