Modurn Warfairz teaches you things

Not only is Modern Warfare the best game ever made on any system, it also teaches you several very important videogame life lessons. Do you not believe me? Then you're a fool. Through the magic of mediocre artistic expressionism, I will share with you the important life lessons I have learned from Modern Warfare 2.

Sit down, take a seat, and hold on to your underbriches, I'm about to take you on a learning adventure. Take notes, there will be a test. 



As we all know, grenades blow shit up. But what you didn't know is that grenades can be launched two football field lengths away and still be as accurate as a sniper rifle. You don't even have to try that hard, just pull the trigger and you'll probably blow something up. At least, unless you are me.



Scientistoligists have pondered the study of teleportation for years now, little did they know the secret had already been discovered by MW2. With the use of Commandos, regular people can teleport behind unsuspecting victims and stab them in the back. Rigorous experimentation has proved no solution to this method, other than a shotgun blast to the face. Well...except for the fact that...



Humans have apparently developed a thick outer shell that occasionally allows them to absorb two, or even three, consecutive shotgun blasts to the head or body. It is unknown why this plasma shield technology does not always work, but it is known to be of alien origin. Because I said so. But at least kaboomels still work, right?



Wrong. Kaboomels, as they are called in the military, are in fact quite unreliable. Sometimes they explode prematurely, other times they don't explode at all. They eat all the Fritos, change the channel on the TV, and always fail to flush the toilet. In fact, it has been proven that rocks are more reliable military weapons compared to claymores. I mean, Kaboomels.



At least I can spaw....wait, what happened? I died, that's what happened. Maybe that's because...



Whether it's a Predatory missile or a helicopter, apparently I am the sole target of all these things. In fact, after digging through lines of code, I have discovered IW actually coded my Gamertag into the game, which is why all of these things kill me. That's pretty bullshit.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

Someone is trying to log into my Dtoid account. I keep getting emails notifying me of bad password attempts. What?

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!
