Topic buyers remorse
Call of Duty Black Ops
I gave in to the hype, and regretted. Deeply regretted it.
I liked CoD4. I even liked MW2 minus all the exploits and ridiculous kill streaks. But I despised CoD3 and WaW. So basically, for me, Infinity Ward = Good. Treyarch = Bad.
Why didn't I make the connection!? I knew it was being made by Treyarch, but after watching gameplay and seeing some commercials... I thought to myself "Hey, this one actually looks pretty good. I'll pick this up and have some fun with my buddies." So I went to pick the game up on release day, got home, and went online to have some fun with my friends.
I tried. I tried so hard to. But I couldn't. It felt... worse than MW2. Like a downgrade. In almost every concievable way imo. The weapons looked and felt boring... The gameplay itself felt off to me, and the audio was absolutely horrible. I called Gamestop the next day to see how much I could get if I traded it back in right away. I ended up holding on to it for a short while just to beat the campaign to get the story. It was very meh imo. I didn't even touch the game after that for about a month. Then I finally traded it in towards Dead Space 2. Which turned out to be a very fantastic and quality game.
Call me crazy, but I swear that if you were to take both Black Ops and MW2 and put gameplay from both side by side and have someone who's never seen or heard of a CoD game before try to figure out which one was the sequel, I bet they'd say MW2. Okay sure, Black Ops seemed to be a little bit more balanced than MW2, but in the end, it still didn't help the game for me when it was so boring.
Scribblenauts -> Zero Punctuation review felt like therapy.
Chibi Robo - Park Patrol -> Oh... that dreadful record player... >.<
And a love/hate thing for Puzzle Quest. Outsmarting a cheatin' NPC through playing dirty only lasts so long.
i have buyers remorse after every single monthly payment of wow.
-then quit? qq nub.
ah yes. i thought of that, then i got bored and needed to kill something
so i killed my goldfish and ate him.
joke was on me because i had forgotten my cousin had gotten me a rubber goldfish instead of a real one, leading to serious complications over the next 4 hours of it's passing.
so while i waited for that, i subbed to wow again, succumbing to its vast horribleness.
My GTX 670. The average frames are right where I expected them to be by looking at the benchmarks. The dips are not what I expected and I should have ponied up the extra hundred bucks and gone for a superclocked 680 or a 7970
