This game is so awesome on Xbox Live, it has me putting down GTA IV it is so good. Too bad I suck terribly even after playing it for 8 hours
I was playing it for a lot longer than that before I finally starting getting good at it. It wasn't all that rare for me to put up ugly kill:death ratios like 2:12. I swear I would camp for a minute cause I could never last more than a few seconds while moving. I figured there were people everywhere.
I would be baffled when nobody would come by for a minute. Not wanting to be completely cheesy and also because I was getting a false sense of security, I would dare to peep my head around a corner for about half a second. Turns out that's about all the time I needed to get shot at from three different directions and killed pretty much instantly. Good times!
Anyway purely out of spite, I kept playing and ploughed through horrible game after horrible game. Any team I was on was pretty much guaranteed to lose. Fair teams be damned! My kills:deaths finally got to 1:1 at around 12,000 (I was playing a lot
). Now I pwn on a semi-regular basis. A true story of perseverence!
Also I want to add that COD 4 is the best online FPS since counter-strike. Seriously wicked game.
