Long Break

Hi guys, I’m not dead after all and sorry for not posting in a while! I’ve had a very long break from blogging due to exams and just playing games, I mean why blog about them when you haven’t really played them? Silly isn’t it! So what have I been playing? Well mostly Skyrim: Ender Scrolls with a bit of MW3 and Fallout 3 added in to the mix. I did go back to MW2 for a bit of reminiscing until I got annoyed with the damn noobtubes being thrown around.

So once again sorry for not posting! You should be seeing stuff from me pretty soon. Watch out!

My First MOAB!

A couple of weeks ago, after Christmas I got my first ever MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs/Massive Ordinance Air Blast) and I can tell you it’s a non-nucular weapon. I achieved it on the map Interchange (Not my favourite map!) on Kill Confirmed using the Specialist Kill-streak reward. My Class:

Primary Weapon- MG36- Silencer- Kick

Secondary Weapon- Stinger

Lethal- Frag

Tactical- Flash

Perk 1- Blind Eye

Perk 2- Assassin

Perk 3- Marksman

Specialist Stricke Package- Slight Of Hand, Quick Draw, Scavanger

I must admit I didn’t use just the LMG I ran out of ammo and picked up my mates ACR 6.8 with silencer, which got most the kills. At the time my heart was pounding and my hands so sweaty! It was a tense time. I have come close to second on Bakaara in Demolition, I was going 20-0 with a PP90M1 and Acr 6.8 both silenced. Then in the second round I made the mistake of rushing into their sporn and well, lets say it didn’t go well!

When and What map have you got a MOAB on? Leave your answer in the comments:MG36

New Piazza map! Looks nice and sunny!

On the 24th January for Premium Elite members only (at the moment) a new DLC will be released. It will be completely free (you already payed for it in you elite membership) and comes with 2 maps:

Piazza, based on the coast of Italy. It reminds me of Estate (MW2) with a very vertical appearance and again the higher ground looks dominant but it also looks close quarters so its anybodies guess which weapons will be dominant but I’d put my money on the FAD or the ACR 6.8.

Libration, based in Manhattan. Looks to be the new Wasteland (MW2). Longer sight-lines means, the snipers will love it but the ‘run and gun’, rushing type will loath it! Could we see some sniping MOAB’s from talented snipers?

Liberation Castle a major camp site!

Throughout this season of new CoD content (9 months), every month the premium members will gain new maps, game modes, spec op missions and weirdly extent ion of the single player storyline. Looks to be an awesome year of CoDing! Watch the Elite video

New MW3 game modes!

Robert Bowling, Community man reveals on twitter that new MW3 game modes are coming!

‘Ready for new game modes for Modern Warfare 3’ he asks to the public. ‘I’ve go some surprises for you for the weekend. I’ll confirm full details tomorrow’

The new game modes could be anything but for now all we can do is sit and wait like excited little boys. It’s like an early Christmas present!

The Xbox Dashboard update came out yesterday as many of you will be aware. Already there are many problems like the inability to connect to Xbox Live.  The most serious of these problems are broken consoles. If you have a complant about the new update head to the Xbox status page.

In my opinion the new update looks sleek, it offers a new tonne of stuff and it really separates it form the Sony’s PSN system. I really like it and I really thought i wouldn’t. What do you think? And have you had any problems? Leave your answer in the comments:

Minecraft Lego?

”Seeing Lego Minecraft set is also our dream… Minecraft is about placing blocks to anything you can imagine in the virtual world. You can build anything you can imagine with Lego bricks in the Physical world. Minecraft and Lego were meant to be together.” Mojang revealed about a Minecraft Lego range idea. They invited some Lego fans behind previous Lego ideas to help with the designs.

”AS the Official Minecraft Lego Project, we will work with the Lego Group to secure a licensing agreement and donate 1% royalty from Lego Cuusoo to charity”

As you can see it looks more like an idea at the moment but I can’t wait till I get to build a Lego Creeper! Ssssssuper!

This fun, light hearted seasonal app is free and quite addictive! You build mushroom houses for you’re Smurfs to move into and then you create plots of land to grow crops. In growing these crops you get XP and golden coins. There are also challenges set to you by Papa Smurf where you get extra XP for completing. In levelling up you unlock certain features like houses, plants and much more. This is such a fun and addictive app, you will be immersed.

Spud rating: 8/10

Xbox sells over Thanksgiving!

Over the Thanksgiving week in America the Xbox 360 had it’s largest sales spike in the consoles 6 year history. Consumers bought some 960,000 consoles throughout the week in the US alone. 800,000 of that was in a 24 hour period. With all the new updates and releases coming out soon Microsoft have it sorted. If Xbox 360s sell the most in December this year too then the have the prestigious title of the United States most loved console 2011.

Kinect in TVs?

Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect technology looks set to appear in next generation TVs. Microsoft are keen to push the Kinect into as many living rooms as possible, even those without and Xbox 360 gaming system. Will we be seeing TVs where you swing you arm to turn on/off a TV? Or will it involve the newer voice command that the Kinect has? Microsoft is already in the stage of licensing the technology to major manufacturers like Sony. We might see the PS3 with the Kinects’ technology.
