  1. Also Largo could've just pinned Guybrush to the ground, knee him in the stomach and steal his money. But one could say that Largo isn't very smart and grabbing Guybrush by the ankles like that was probably him reacting before actually thinking. Just my theory though!
  2. Thats the same thing with having positive opinions. Its simply to early to deem this game a success or a failure. I remember when MI4 was getting previews all over the place and lots of the fans were positive (along with some skeptics) and when the game came out... well I'm not going to into that minefield but you get the idea. We just have to wait and see.
  3. So no complaining till the game comes out? Fair enough, yeah, I think I can wrap my head around that. However since you can stand by your opinion (and present it) why can't people with negative opinions do the same? Sure you can say that we should wait till the game comes out to complain but ain't that the same with positive opinions? Are people allowed to praise the game to no end even when it isn't released yet?
  4. You know its funny, I've been wondering about this for a while when I was replaying SOMI and thought that those two verbs were completely useless. God its good to be back on this sight!
  5. Come on it wasn't that bad, sure the animations could've been alot better (too rigid for my tastes) but maybe the sheer awesomeness of MI2 will rub off on it remake. Hopefully that will make up for the robotic animations.
  6. A website can't turn into a zombie silly....wait can it?!
  7. I think the reason why some people think like this is because since it is set in modern times kids (like me) can better relate to it. I remember asking a friend about CoD3 (I had a vague interest in it a while back) and he replied "I dunno something about Nazis in France". Out of curiousity I asked a couple of my fellow students about WW2 (specifically D-Day) and apparently Normandy is a country. In contrast however when our gym teacher was leaving for Iraq, my friends turned into immediate experts (CoD4 had helped them well). It was suprising really, not only because of their knowledge but I also got to wear a helmet and a combat vest (bragging rights on this forum lol). It still worries me though about how MW2 is glorifying war. One level your mowing down civilians (you know to "show" the horrors of war) the next level your playing something out of a summer action flick. Also Tingler it does have sticky grenades (Semtex).
  8. I've discovered Call of Duty when I first got my Vista. I remember downloading the demo and playing it every single day. In a mere 2 weeks I managed to know that demo in and out but I still never got bored. When I got the full game I jumped for joy. I could finally play the full experience on my PC and this would be the first PC game I ever bought (I was a console gamer for a long time). After completing the first CoD at 2 am in the morning I felt fulfilled. Then a couple of months later I played CoD2 on the 360 and it was excellent. Now you must be wondering where I going with this nostalgic ramble. With the release of MW2 there were TONS of sales and it became the one of the most successful releases of all time. However this game has brought not only sales but something that I simply groan at: Yet another reason for kids (like me) to think that the military is cool and killing people is fun and easy. I really don't have a problem with the game itself but what I do have a problem with is the seeds that it is growing. I got in an argument about Bioshock and MW2. I tried to explain why I liked it more than Call of Duty and the guy I was arguing with said it wasn't realistic. I then retorted "Neither is MW2 especially since it involves Russia invading the US" but he replied "But they hate us!". Apparently it hasn't occured to some of us that the USSR ended in 1991 and Russia is no longer our enemy or ally. We are just on good terms with them like mutual friends. We may get in a small spat or two but eventually we make up and continue with our lives. Another time the subject of MW2 sprang up again and a kid (who's dad is in the Army) said that MW2 could be the most realistic game ever made if there were no sticky grenades. I simply looked on in silent shock. Do you see what I'm getting at? I know right now my ideas seem all over the place but there is only one word that springs up when I think of this sort of stuff: stupid. Is it me or is CoD brainwashing us kids into thinking that this is what the military is really like? I don't know I guess its just me throwing ideas in the wind but I just felt the need to get this off my chest.
  9. Hey Lagomorph01 where did you find that book? It looks real interesting!
  10. That is supposed be Guybrush and Bink?
  11. Don't worry I completely support your choices and are behind you (not in that way, not that there is anything wrong with that) 100%
