Scores - Dead Ops Arcade:

I'm about to put in this game for the first time...
Played a bit of Zombies with Jauert and his friend Chile. We also tried a 2 on 9 (recruit) bot match in Nuke Town, which was a lot of fun. The remote camera is awesome - like having eyes in the back of my head.
Played a lot of COD:BO today: First some hacking, in which I tried Zork and played Dead Ops Arcade, then some combat training alone versus 9 bots on Recruit difficulty, then Jauert joined and we got through almost all of the modes: some 1 va 1, which I lost horribly, some combat training against 9 bots on Regular difficulty, some online Team Deathmatch, some Zombie mode, some Dead Ops Arcade, and finally I started playing the Campaign alone. That's a lot of Black Ops.
Defeated 9 Hardened bots in Combat Training.
Holy shizzle, that Vietnam level is unlike anything I ever played. The scale of the battle is amazing. I'm sure it's all smoke and mirrors, but it sure works the first time you play it.
The Blackbird mission was not great, but I like all the Vietnam stuff. The helicopter sequence in the Payback mission makes me want to play a arcade style on-rails chopper game.
completed the game on Regular difficulty.
Haha... the ending was so much 'America, fuck yeah!'. Hilarious. This campaign was awesome. The story is so much more interesting than the Modern Warfare games. For me at least, this more fantastic plot speaks way more to my imagination.
Played the 'Five' Zombie mode level with Jauert. Hilarious.
- Playing against 9 Recruit bots on Nuketown, got a 50 kill streak. Why do I play Combat Training, you ask? Because I like shooting dudes, and don't like being shot. Playing against humans, that ratio is not satisfying because when I'm at my best, I have a 1:1 kill ratio, which doesn't make for a satisfying experience. It's intense, but generally not fun.
Double XP Weekend. Leveled up to 28. *Yawn*, must sleep.
After relocating to Cairo, I've been playing a bit of Black Ops on the company Xbox 360, including a few split-screen matches with Kristian the camera dude, Mohammed the Business Developer, and Mohammed Abdelrahim, with whom I played tonight. So far, I am The Master of console shooters in the office. Let's see how long it lasts... :)
Previously, I've played some COD:BO online with Jauert. We've often used Google Video Chat to reduce the distance from København to Aarhus. Now, amazingly, my moving to Cairo does not make that big of a difference. Sure, the latency gets a bit worse, and I might get shot more, but we play and talk together just like before. That there Internet is pretty cool, if you ask me... :)
Got the score 1179600 in Dead Ops Arcade.
Almost fell asleep while playing... :)
Played some matches with Jauert versus bots and versus each other, the last one I won by a hair's breadth...
