  1. 45 knife kills in one game: http://hdsht.com/videos/186 Would piss me off so much! He gets 2 nemesis pins too, plus another guy on his team is knife happy.
  2. True. I don't often play on Sunday afternoons, but I noticed today that Sunday afternoon crowd are way better than 5.30pm weekday crowd. Had some cracking games today
  3. Ooh, crosspost http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/21/kinect-meets-minecraft-animates-a-giant-statue-in-your-honor-v/
  4. Nice. Saw this on the Official twitter channel but didn't get round to watching it before.
  5. It's pretty well established that console gamers are a bit dumb. You can kind of see why though - PC gamers don't have the potential of having to time-share the TV, they're locked in a separate room not disturbing anyone and there's a certain obsessiveness required to bother to upgrade a PC to gaming spec rather than just having a console because you fancied playing some games and the guy in the shop said this one was good. Battlefield players on PC probably upgraded their machines specifically for the game (I know I used to).
  6. Is it not the draw from Vietnam still?
  7. Yeah, I've lost mcoms because of that. Makes for a cunning defense strategy - quick everyone, crowd around the mcoms so that our dropped weapons and bodies might avert their plant/defuse efforts!
  8. I'm currently hitting B with my right thumb, then attempting to aim by moving my left thumb over. Must try the index finger on B, other finger on trigger trick.
  9. They "grey out" is an old BF1942 diversion tactic in Conquest mode. You neutralise a flag and then skirt around the enemy to a flag behind their lines while they're getting it back.
  10. I'm temped by one of these controller attachments just so I can plant at mcoms without my shooting ability turning to shit: http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/10/n-control-avenger-xbox-360-attachment-gets-a-ces-overview-video/
  11. I really haven't had a very gamey year... Game of the Year Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Red Dead Redemption Minecraft Hall of Shame Ruffian Games APB: poorly executed, over budget, studio-killing disappointment. Crackdown 2: Perfunctory texture pack of the legendary first game. Am cry. Best Technical Achievement Kinect Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Best Online Experience Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Best Mobile Game Angry Birds Fruit Ninja Best Xbox 360 Game Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Red Dead Redemption Best Download-only Game Minecraft
  12. Apparently the PBR glitch is fixed. It was just a server change, so no client patch to download needed.
  13. Ooh 210 on this arbitrary scale for me. I have achieved this by shooting at stuff and mostly being the one with enough persistence to plant the God damned C4.
  14. Had to look that up to find out what it was as I've never seen it. I think if it ever became a problem I'd switch to Hardcore as it's impossible in that.
  15. I'm not going to get an opportunity to play this for weeks. My heart yearns
  16. I've still got the original BF Vietnam sat in the shrink wrapping upstairs. It's probably too late now isn't it? (I hope you can still pick up boats with choppers and drop them on people)
  17. The only BF game I've never played. I think that came out at around about the point I switched from being a PC gamer to a console gamer.
  18. Thanks for the tips guys. I think the worst bit about that gun is that I know full well how useless I'm being with it and how much I hate the people who use it all the time.
  19. Interesting enough. No iPhone here though :/ Does anyone have any tips for the M95? It is by far my least favourite gun and levelling it for those stupid SPECACT achievements is becoming a real drag. I'm even considering using a red dot on it and just using it like a sniper shotgun. The chances of me getting the efficiency or excellence pins on it so far is pretty much zero. If I can hit a single person with it in a round it's a minor victory. Maybe I just don't know where the good camping spots are.
  20. Classic DICE. A bug that only affects the fans that have been with them for years :/
  21. You could always kill with the smoke launcher, I'm pretty sure you don't get any stars for it though
  22. OK, this is my profile: http://bfbc2.statsverse.com/stats-insignias/360/Strawp Why the bloody hell don't I have the "all bronze" insignia? The numbers on the official stats page differ from the game. They said I didn't have bronze for a couple of the pistols because they have the bronze kill level at 25 instead of 10. I finished that today (so now have at least silver on all pistols) and I still don't have that God damned insignia!
  23. Congrats! As Chewylegs said, the leaning thing is normal. I'm kind of having to relearn that as I neglected my switch stance for years and I'm having to build up confidence riding switch. It's like turning 180 and suddenly being a beginner again. You will so love carving and riding deep powder. One of the best feelings in the world.
  24. Yeah, you really just have to look at the scoreboard and make an informed decision based on what levels everyone is on and quit and find a new game if it's obviously going to be a meat grinder.
  25. I'm not familiar with that. How does it work?
