Cole Hamels: 'Pussies' use random MW2 grenades (Update)


9:30 PM on 10.30.2009



For the New York Yankees’ sake, I sure hope Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels continues his sub-par playoff performance tomorrow night in Game 3 of the World Series. But as much as I want to see him crash and burn against the Yankees, I have to hand it to him -- this public service announcement imploring Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players to avoid throwing grenades randomly is pretty damn funny (its NSFW language contributes to that).

At this point, I’ve just about hit “information overload” on Modern Warfare 2 -- the game’s going to be out in a week and a half, and I’m just going to play it when it releases. But unlike some controversial footage from earlier in the week, this doesn’t spoil anything; it’s just a good bit of fun. (And for some reason, I find it funny to hear a baseball player swear. I can’t explain it.)

I, for one, strongly suggest that you all follow Hamels’ sage advice, because like him, I’m tired of seeing a killcam replay where someone merely runs forward and tosses a grenade as far as they can in the general direction of the opposing team. Remember: that bush-league stuff is for pussies.

[Update: For the record, everyone, I completely missed the "Fight Against Grenade Spam" thing the first time around, and I didn't realize it until after I saw everyone lambasting Infinity Ward on Twitter and the Web. Obviously, that (apparently anti-gay) message is not something that Destructoid or I endorse, and had I noticed it before this story went live, the tone of the post would've been completely different.

As it turns out, Infinity Ward has pulled the video; you can check out their official response here. -Samit]

While playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, we posit that Nintendo hates condoms

We're now reaching the point in our Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare play session where Max thinks critically about the game's narrative mechanics and then we talk about condoms for like five minutes.more

Max and I have hippie liberal hipster opinions about CoD: Advanced Warfare

Max and I were playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare while hungover, and started devolving into dumber and dumber jokes, and then Max busts out a term like "jingoistic proto-fascism" because we're a couple of San Francisco hipsters who definitely don't have informed, individually refined opinions about things because the world is a vampire and everything is fake.more

We were playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, but we wanted to hang with Stephan at the skate park

Max and I continue to fumble around in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as our minds wander to some predictably stupid places. We talk about meeting an imaginary teen named Stephan at the skate park, how to find "The Boob," and aggravatingly stupid YouTube comments.more
