Best Halloween Costume


This was the best costume I saw this year. Hope everyone had a good Halloween. Looking forward to playing the Call of Duty with you all on November 9.

Take care,

Josey Wales

The new cod looks pretty good. I'll probably pick it up after work on the 9th.

Anyone getting the Xbox Kinect? My gf kinda wants it and I want a new 360 with HDMI so I'm thinking about using that as an excuse to get the 4GB kinect bundle.

Can you use the old hard drives with the new 360's?

Unky Eternal said...

I kind of want the kinect as well but I won't get it unless there are some really good games for it. Not sure about the hard drive.

Daymonster said...

I don't think so.

locopuyo said...

Anyone getting COD prestige edition with the RC video surveillance car?

Josey WaIes said...

Not getting prestige edition. Kinect could be good, I have not looked at the games for it, hopefully there will be shooters.

I do not like the new xbox live interface. Its the boxes, I do not like the sharp boxes. It feels like you are looking at a power point presentation. Agree or disagree?

locopuyo said...

The new interface has a windows 7ish look to it. It seems to respond faster than the old interface and has more polish to it. I don't really hate or dislike the new look.

I just watched a new feature video for the new cod. It has theater mode (like Halo 3) where you can watch replays which is awesome. It also has some new money type system where you buy weapons and stuff. I'm not sure if I'll like that or not. But along with that it has some sweet new gametypes where you can bet your money and stuff. You can customize your gun with your own logo and red dot/circle/whatever you want which is awesome. I am hoping when you pick up someone's gun it actually has their customization of that stuff. It would be lame if it magically always had your own. There are a bunch of cool things by the looks of it it won't be lame like all the other cods treyarch or whatever their name is made.

I'm def picking it up after work on the 9th.

Dammer said...

Right now I'm not a fan of the new 360 interface, I agree about the boxes. It just reminds me of work. But after I spend some time in it I probably won't mind it, I haven't really used it all that much outside of watching Netflix.

Josey WaIes said...

I watched that video Loco, the game looks good. I also found the money system interesting, I did not fully understand how the "contracts" thing worked but I do think the money system could be cool. I am ready to gamble big bucks on COD matches so I can buy better weapon perks!

See everyone on-line Tuesday night.

Is everyone going to be playing COD instead of Reach?

Josey WaIes said...

COD is going to be my game.

locopuyo said...

obv. reach has been out for months and none of us have been playing

i'm super excited for cod customization stuff. The only thing I'm worried about is the maps.

Unky Eternal said...

i am playing reach. i will play with you squatting bear.

adeclipse said...

I'll be getting call of duty tonight, so i won't be able to play it until tomorrow probably.

How has everyone been doing lately?

Squatting Bear said...

picked up cod today, will be on tonight. what time are people playing, if at all?

locopuyo said...

i'm about to play

adeclipse said...

You guys going to be on tomorrow? I'll be playing then.

Josey WaIes said...

I plan to be on tonight. The game is really fun, looking forward to playing with the clan and fulfilling some contracts for cash!

Josey WaIes said...

I am going to be on from 4:30ish to 7ish if anyone is interested in playing.

adeclipse said...

Ok, COD update. The best gun i've found so far in game is the Stoner63 LMG. It's easy to unlock as the last LMG you have to purchase you get pretty early in the game.

The Stoner63 seems to be more powerful than the famas, shoots faster, has a smaller clip so reload time is faster, and has pretty much no recoil at all so taking out enemies even at distance is easy. When I saw I had the last LMG available to buy i went ahead and purchased all of the LMGs so i could see what the Stoner was like. It definitely is my gun of choice now. It is the only gun i've had so far that i'm considering putting scavenger as a perk with because i'll go through all of my ammo without dying. It is actually closer to an assault rifle I would say. It's only got a 30 round clip in it and the mobility with it is actually really high, if not higher than with an assault rifle. Also if you go to any website and look at the stats it has the highest stats i've seen for a gun in game so far.

I just figured i'd let y'all know in case anyone had a chance to try it out. I was going back and forth between the famas, galil, the m16, and the AK-74(SMG), but this LMG definitely blows them away as it takes the best from all of the categories.

I'm hoping to be on some tonight to play if anyone else wants to get on and run some matches.

adeclipse said...

Also, I should have said in the post that I never used LMGs unless I was going for challenges, but this LMG definitely doesn't feel like an LMG.

Josey WaIes said...

I am interested to try that gun, I have not purchased it yet. I did purchase and use the AUG, it is a assault rifle in this version and used it with a ACOG scope and like that. But I will give your suggestion a try.

I purchased some different reticles for my red dot and I really like the different sights, i am looking forward to trying more and also changing the color.

adeclipse said...

Yeah, I tried the AUG a few time and never really liked the kick of it.

The different red dots for the sights are nice depending on the use of the gun. I definitely find that with an SMG or heavy kicking Assault rifle, like the Famas or Galil, having a larger cross hair sight makes it a lot easier to pick up targets quickly. I did find that when using an Assault rifle that i will be using for long range shots it can make it more difficult to find targets at range with a big dot or a big cross-hairs on the screen.

I would definitely try out the classified LMG when you get a chance though.

locopuyo said...

I just tried the stoner63.
I like it a lot. it's a really good close and mid range weapon. You have to be a little more precise with it than the M16 though. At closer range it's better to go for headshots because it isn't quite as powerful. At long range it isn't as good.
I would like it a lot more if you could use a silencer.
I think I'll probably be switching between this and the M16 a lot.

adeclipse said...

I agree that it might not be as good as the m16 at long range, but it is still pretty effective. I found that if i did about 2 burst pulls of the trigger i would take out people at range pretty easily. Another positive for the gun is that there aren't a lot of long range maps in Black Ops. I don't enjoy that there aren't more maps that are open because it makes sniping pretty much impossible. The Stoner does excel at the mid range shooting though. I really liked how there is pretty much no recoil to it so you're not spraying and praying like you sometimes end up doing with the famas or smgs. It shoots really fast too which i like a lot.

Are there any other guns out there that anyone is using with success? How about perks and things as well? I have been using claymores as my equipment, and I know that someone was saying that the distraction device was pretty good for drawing people out, but has anyone tried like the motion sensor or the scrambler?

adeclipse said...

Is anyone planning on being on tonight to play some COD? I'd love to get enough people on at some point to play some more games. I'd also love to try the wager matches as a team if we can get enough people on. That or Zombies was pretty fun when we were trying it last time. It would be cool to see if we could get past the part where we go outside again.

I'll be on playing again in a little while. I'm just taking a break right now since i played a bit earlier.

Also, after playing more with the Stoner63 I do agree with you pollo that if does lack behind the m16 for those long range shots. I think I was just getting lucky and getting head shots the last time I was hitting people at range. After playing for a while earlier I could definitely tell how much harder it was to hit people a full map away. I equipped the ACOG scope on it earlier too just to see if that helped with the long range shots, and i don't really recommend trying it. When aiming through the red dot there is very little recoil noticed, but with the ACOG I seemed to notice the recoil a lot more. I know that it will be different for everyone but I found that just using the standard red dot on the red dot scope made aiming easier than having crosshairs or anything. Also, having the extended mag attachment along with scavenger and warlord makes it a powerful weapon.

Another update on guns, since I unlocked them earlier as well. The guns I unlocked earlier were the rest of the sniper rifles which are the L96A1 and the PSG1. The L96A1 packs some power but it is bolt action so you better hit in the kill zone on your first shot. As for the PSG1 I really didn't notice much of a difference between it and the WA2000 except that it seemed to have a little more recoil. I probably wouldn't really recommend the PSG1 being that there aren't many levels where you can snipe and it lacks a little of the power that the L96A1 has. I have also tried both of these guns with the ACOG scope on them. The ACOG would be so much better if the scope didn't move when looking through the sights. It doesn't really make much sense to me that the sniper rifle is the only weapon that the scope moves around on with the ACOG. I figure if the scope stays still with an LMG it would be a lot easier to keep a sniper steady.

Sorry for the long rant on things, but i'm also somewhat disappointed that the scavenger perk does not replenish launcher ammo, or give you equipment replenishment like claymores. It would be nice to get another claymore to protect my back after someone setting it off trying to sneak up on me. That is one thing that i'm sad about and the other is that contracts don't change a little bit faster. It sucks the only contracts available are stupid things like get 20 kills with your pistol and things like that. Or ones for guns you don't even have.

Alright, I hope to see y'all on later for some games if possible. I hope all is going well for everyone.

FYI for Black Ops a fun mini game,

When you are at the start menu, press left trigger, right trigger, and keed doing this until you stand up. At this point you can walk about the room. Walk over to the computer in the room and type in DOA, press enter. A mini game is then unlocked which is actually fun. Enjoy.

Daymonster said...

holy crap. lots of cod talk here. someone should have posted.

I'll play some COD later tonight if anybody wants to play. I have yet to play with any of you.
