See, Battlefield Heroes does the same thing, but I end up getting put there with the same douchebags.

When I criticize them for saying the word "noob" (I'm sorry, but that word is my least favorite word in the English language) they are like, "How old are YOU then?"

When I explain I'm 28, they act like I should be sitting around in my top hat drinking brandy. I'll never stop playing video games. I enjoy them and they're like any other hobby that's considered "adult". My problem with the word noob is that it's SO meaningless. They use it as nouns, verbs, adjectives and it's just so stupid. Like people get bent out of shape when they get called it on a game and I'm just like . It's a game. I know I'm totally wrong in even attempting this, but sometimes if I can stop ONE person from ever saying noob again I feel like I've accomplished something.

I can't even play MW2 because of the little idiots I hear on their headsets thinking they're comedians. Battlefield Heroes has people who say "last kill" or post their stats at the end of the game. Like anyone gives a shit. Grrr.

If I'm playing alone I don't use my headset. I keep it plugged in so I don't have to hear the morons over my TV, but I don't keep the headset on.

When I'm playing with a friend we'll just have a private chat going on.

Agreed I don't even have a head phone anymore. Anyone talks in the lobby automatic mute from me. I have never heard one intelligent thing over the "air". One time on team death match I kept this guy off mute he sound older like in his twenties. He was yelling and caring on like he was a drill Sergent or something.

Example:

"Come on boys lets light em up, keep those guns hot." "Flank left flank right!"

Stuff like that and he was dead serious. Totally douche, I wish I could remember his screen name he probably does it forever game.

If I could disable chat in the games I play, I would. NOTHING constructive is ever said.

they should just allow you to use private chat in game. That way you can lock it down to the 2 or 3 people you know that you're playing with and not annoy anyone else with your conversation, or be annoyed by the attention starved prepubescent with turret's syndrome.

Gave up on Batman, solid game just not my cup of tea.

I liked AC1 but it got really repetitive quick, I've head the 2nd one avoids that so we'll see.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

i would love to get new games, but i'm still playing Fallout 3. I just got it in late January, the GOTY edition...and man i am blown away every single time I play.

What is Heavy Rain about? i like survival horror games...does it have any scary parts??

Only cost me $24 for Heavy Rain. Gamestop had this crazy trade in fest (50% added on) and I ended up getting $36 for Silent Hill Shattered Memories (PS2), Metal Gear Solid 4, and COD 4. This was a month after they offered me like $5 for both MGS4 and COD4 combined. I was going to trade in my PS2 but this weird crack in the back on the AV slot stopped them from allowing me to trade it in. Just as well, I didn't really want to trade it in but I could do without it and I've been excited about Heavy Rain for a while now.

I'm currently saving up for Final Fantasy XIII. Hoping it's good but it seems to be getting mixed reviews. Either way only thing I really want is a game with a good story. After that I'll probably end up trading in Heavy Rain and FFXIII for Dead Rising 2 when it comes out in August.

It's more of a thriller/murder mystery then a horror game but as suggested befor,e try the demo before you buy it, or better yet rent it. It's definitely a niche game but a nice departure from the traditional I have to shoot something or play a sport type game. One things for sure though the graphics are possibly the best ever seen in a video game, at least on a console.

You'll like it. Very deep story and fun gameplay. Though there are some things they could have done better. Anyway great game overall.

One of the worse things Microsoft did in my opinion was include a headset with every XBOX. PSN you still have douches but there fewer and farther between.

Also to XBOX owners if you turn on the family settings on your X-Box you can stop all voice chat. Everyone automatically gets muted. It really is a wonderful feature, I wish PS3 had that but instead I usually get releagated to plugging in my mic and leaving it on the floor with my mic set to mute so I can't be heard.

Lol, $5 or $10 on PSN and people are shelving out big bucks for it? Got to love collectors. I still have my disk but they're scratched to hell.

I liked AC2 a lot. And the two new add-ons are available as well.

I'm gonna trade in my copy of heavy rain next week while it's still worth about $40ish with the current 50% extra deal cuz I just can't play through it again, but it is cool that myself and the couple other people who I know who've beaten the game have had completely different outcomes than myself.
