Forza Motorsport 4 Demo on Xbox Live

If you are a fan of racing games you should check out the Forza Motorsport 4 Demo now available on Xbox Live.  I played a a little bit of the 3rd installment and enjoyed it.  It reminds me a lot of Grand Tourismo but doesn’t seem to take itself quite as seriously.  Heres a link to the Xbox Live page http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Forza-Motorsport-4/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8024d530910?nosplash=1&cid=majornelson.

Here is another video of my brother and I playing some BF3 beta – we attempted to try and discuss something relevant to BF3, but pretty much failed.  Ended up bitching about overpowered weapons and discussing zombie survival techniques!  Don’t forget to subscribe to stay updated.

Friday Night Counter-Strike Session

It has been awhile since I have played any type of Counter-Strike but the urge hit me last night and decided to record some footage of it.  I used to be a hardcore CS player – I started playing the very first day the original CS was released for Half-Life as a modification. I remember it was some map like cs_jail or something and I was hooked immediately. There was a time about 2 or 3 years after I started playing that I should of went into professional gaming for it probably, I wish I would of recorded some of the crap I used to do. I remember learning things in chunks and then once you knew it all you would become nearly unstoppable, for example I learned the maps, then the weapon bullet patterns, then the most likely path of the enemy based on whether or not they are winning or losing, and how to recognize certain sounds.  Sound in CS was insanely important, a lot of the time I would know exactly what was going on around me without seeing anything due to footstep sounds, gun shots, grenade bouncing noises and hostages talking.  This lead to a lot of kills through walls which lead to lots of server kicks/bands, :).

My favorite strategy was to be on the losing team where the enemy would be constantly pounding us by rushing into our spawn and killing us, I would usually camp like the rest of my team for 3-5 rounds and get killed allowing the enemies to gain a lot of confidence and become stupid. Then on the 6 round or so I would buy my favorite weapon and run my ass as fast as I could into a spot they would surely all run past so they could get their easy spawn kills, and then it would be a chicken shoot!  I would mow down usually at least half their team or more in a blaze of glory before someone turns around and spots me. That was awhile ago though!  Then life distracted me and by the time I got back into it I wasn’t near as good anymore.  I never got that good at CS Source for some reason, just doesn’t feel the same.

Battlefield 3 Beta Teamwork Gameplay with Venesectrixzero

My Brother (Venesectrixzero) and I teamed up last night to destroy some faces in the BF3 Beta. Map is Operation Metro! This video has only a few clips from hours of footage I took,
the part when we attack site B underground and hold it was one of the highlights of the night.

NOTE: I don’t have my mic on “listen”, I am actually using headphones the reason you hear me talk in the background is because my brother’s speakers are so damn loud it is
coming through his mic and back through my speakers which fraps is recording through all win7 sounds.

New Mortal Kombat Movie? Looks like it!

Sweet!  I still watch the original a lot, sometimes for the music alone! MORTAL KOMBATTTTTT DA DUND DHADAUND DHAUDAN!

“New Line, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, is producing a new Mortal Kombat film, 14 years after their last adaptation of the popular video game franchise. Kevin Tancharoen, the man responsible for the popular web-series Mortal Kombat: Legacy (pictured), will be directing“I’ve always been a huge fan of the games,” Tancharoen tells EW. His first Mortal Kombat project was a proof-of-concept video meant to be shown only to studios, but which was accidentally posted to YouTube by none other than himself. “I was mortified at first because I thought I was going to be in a mess of trouble with Warner Bros.” (You can check out the video below.)”

Hitmanjaret Battlefield 3 Beta Commentary

Decided to make a gameplay commentary for the Battlefield 3 Beta.  I have never recorded any time of commentary before but I like to watch other peoples commentaries and figured with Battlefield 3 and Diablo 3 on the way it may be fun to give it a shot.  I may do one more in the beta and hopefully a lot more once the full game is released!  If you give it a listen let me know what you think.  Click the youtube button the top of this blog to visit my channel for more videos.
