Within an hour's span of playing online, I've been kicked out of a lobby because someone thought I was some old guy pretending to be a girl (?!), been kicked out of another lobby group just because I didn't have a mic, been called a fag, and after winning a game, someone told me "good job, you greasy fuck, now get the fuck out" in a very pissed off tone.
I stayed at that victory screen for 40 seconds after he said that, of course.
On a side note, I got the Ring of Death today on my 360. Oddly, about 45 minutes later, it was working just fine. Strange.
almighty Fatness: hmm
almighty Fatness: eurogamer's top 50 games of the year was both awesome and dumb
almighty Fatness: portal was #1 and stalker was in the top ten.... but fucking halo 3 and bioshock were too.
almighty Fatness: and zelda: phantom hourglass
PickHut: portal doesn't deserve 1
PickHut: orange box makes more sense
almighty Fatness: haha
almighty Fatness: they didn't count that as a compilation
almighty Fatness: team fortress 2 got 9
almighty Fatness: and I haven't seen ep2 yet
PickHut: that's retarded
almighty Fatness: why?
almighty Fatness: portal rules.
PickHut: they just wanted more of the games on the list
almighty Fatness: uh... it's not one game.
almighty Fatness: it's a compilation.
almighty Fatness: XD
I was gonna make an entry about how my number 1 rank on the Omega Five leaderboard (I wasn't even trying that hard, either) wasn't gonna last, but by the time I went back to take a pic minutes later, I saw this:
And they get taken away from me after just two bad matches.... I've never cursed so much or so loud at a video game before.
This is why I rarely play Halo 3's ranked matches (that, and they're really not that fun). The only reason I'm playing it now is for the promotion.
Update: Screw the promotion, it's not that important. Just a game.
There's an option to choose between a set number of credits and free play, and you don't have to start over at the beginning of the mission when you continue.
