NSW, how can you worship Horde and not like Coop? Horde IS coop! Looking at it, there are a few coop multiplayer modes on GTA, or we can just free mode, or shoot each other.
Double-splattered!

Popmofo and I were discussing this just yesterday....the PS3 is doomed. Prices are coming down for bluray players so that marketing position is gone. As for games, they aren't doing anything to impressive with PS3 exclusive games and the games that are on both consoles always seem to play and look better on the 360 anyways. As for online capabilites, MS wins hands down. Hell, Sony is just now promoting that the PS3 can download movies....360 has been doing that basically from day one.
Metal Gear and Little Big Planet are the only two I can think of so far... we'll see.

As for the PS3's demise, I wouldn't count on it just yet; Sony has sunk WAY too much money into it to just walk away...

I think if they put out a couple more really good games, cut the price again by at least $50 and lower the prices for new games, they could be right back into it.

Remember when they released the original Playstation? Everyone figured Nintendo and Sega would eat them for lunch...

It's an interesting industry to me....I wonder where it will wind up?

I don't think the PS3's demise is not now nessecarily but I think the choices they have made will sink it eventually. Who even knows if bluray will be here to stay?

I'm glad that they are considered the second toughest enemy in the game behind Death Claws though, makes me feel better about getting my ass kicked...
Well, let's just say they're tough for a basic "creature" enemy, there are far tougher things in the game to look forward to, my friend.


NSW, you missed out on LeMac and I double teabagging an annoying 12 year old on Halo 3 last night.

Here's an article in the Wall Street Journal about what we've been talking about:

PS3 Sags in Battle Again Xbox 360, Wii - WSJ.com

I don't think the PS3 is dead in the water, but they do have quite an uphill battle. Regardless, interesting article.

Ha, awesome.

In turn, you missed out on me and my two LA buddies playing public Whorde....and we ended up with a ten year old kid whose gamer tag was Box(followed by two numerals, forget which). It took the three of us about two waves to thoroughly exasperate Box, who was a better player than any of us, with our nonsense. At one point, one of us cursed, and I yelled "There's a ten year old playing, stop cursing", whereupon Box said "All of you shut the fuck up!" and after that I literally could not stop laughing for the rest of the game. We made it to Wave 10, and Box was knocked down and bleeding, yelling for us to save him. I then told him that we would not at all save him, that he was going to learn about just how rough life was, and then the rest of us died, but not before Box could tell us that we all sucked ass. Classic. Box might be the love child of Lazarus and U2Kitten, not sure.

It's still relatively new to me, and, frankly, all I want to do is play and not talk shit.....but Box was fucking hilarious, and one of my friends was drunk and kept yelling "West Side!", which was apropos of nothing at all. He would then encourage Box to "West Side it, Box!" which thoroughly irritated Box.

Playing with my buddies out West or with Scumbo, and now YLB is a riot. Playing with strangers is pure pot luck. I've played with my ex a few times in recent weeks, and if we play public, she gets the same "Itz a gurl!!!!" stuff, but she could not care less.

Haha, that story rules. You made me do a real life "lol". LeMac and I were commenting on how shitty some people's usertags are.

Audiophile came over to my place earlier today, and we traded off every level on Horde for a while. We ended up playing with some guy whose usertag was "A 1981 Firebird", or some similar car. We made it a point to call him by his full gamertag the entirety of the match. "Look out, A 1981 Firebird, here comes a flamethrower!", "Hey, A 1981 Firebird, do you need some help?", "Hey A 1981 Firebird, do you like Halo?", Etc.

You should play with me and my 2 idiot friends at some point. Or I should join you and Audiophile.

Calling him "A 1981 Firebird" is fantastic. I'm not sure if my tag is lame, awesome or in the middle. At least you can easily shorten it to "moon" in a pinch.
