So I spent all day Saturday at a Modern Warfare 2 LAN party. It was pretty disappointing considering Infinity Ward has disabled the ability to gain experience during LAN play. Absolutely nothing you do counts toward advancing your character. It's extremely annoying and it completely ruined the game for all of us. We attempted to go online, but getting all 9 people online from one location was not the easiest thing in the world. Suffice to say, MW2's LAN capability is complete crap and will probably make it a game that is never played at LAN parties.
Honestly, Modern Warfare 2 is about the only thing I've played the last week. I finally beat the single player, and that was some completely over-the-top shit. Did anyone else get completely confused as to what was going on plat wise those last 3-4 missions. I was having no problems following the story up to that point, and then the game just lost me. I personally think the ending to Modern Warfare 1 was much much better.
I'm just really looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday this coming weekend. I'm gonna use the time to catch up on some other gaming, which includes DJ Hero, Brutal Legend, Batman: AA, and probably New Super Mario Bros Wii. Trust me when I say that Wednesday night can't get here soon enough.
Well that's enough about me. Let's get on with the weekend cblog recaps shall we.
