I got AW ... just did not like it as much as the prior versions and I was CoD fanboy. They are saying Black Ops III will have a 4 person cooperative mode ... You can preorder now and get the beta when its available ... if the beta sucks cancel the order.

Good luck with that. Those things bit  rot.

What on Earth did Atari make in 1972? I remember the Atari 2600, I sold mine about 5 years ago on ebay for like 200 bucks. But I had the 1977 edition, which I was pretty sure was the very first editio

I had Pong as well as an Atari 2600. My son has about every gaming system known to humanity, but I still reminisce about Leisure Suit Larry.

I do like that idea. I just hope the zombies mode is good. That's what I got the most use out of on Black Ops II, though after a while the fact that we weren't actually playing towards or for anything got annoying.

I have never gotten into the Zombies mode. I may preorder for beta access, but even that isn't all that attractive an idea to me. I rented AW through gamefly, played it for about an hour or so which verified my dislike for the game. I guess paying 5 for beta isn't too bad compared to a rental fee.

The "Tranzit" zombies mode in Black Ops II was excellent, as was the "Five" map in the original Black Ops. Tranzit has five different maps (bus station, diner, farm, power station, town) all connected by a bus route surrounded by farmland (with shortcuts and easter eggs). One of the best examples of map design I've ever seen in an FPS. The one and only downside was that you couldn't save progress or level up between games. You just had to start over every time, and you didn't actually play for anything. But the actual gameplay is excellent if you've got four people. Five was cool just because you get to play as JFK, Castro, Nixon, and Robert McNamara and fight through the White House. Advanced Warfare also had zombies in the DLC, but the maps weren't that interesting.

Oh, I've tried it out before, it just never really kept me interested.

God, black ops two zombies was the shit. It's the only reason I played COD, and I haven't played much since. Everyone hated Tranzit, but I thought it was fun. The DLC maps were really fun too.

"Everyone" is stupid. Tranzit is awesome. ;-)

@jamo I too have been playing Destiny ... a lot ... and I mean a lot ... I love this game have 3 characters at 32. Do we have any more destiny players on here?

Fellow destiny player here on ps4. Have a 31 titan and hunter. Finally got all CE gear for both of them so grinding for the mateials to get them to 32. Was hoping to have both at 32 for HOW but no luck. One of the more addictive games I've played.

HOW will probably break the intent. In other news i finally got a fatebringer. Next up is finally beat crota on hard.

This new game called Agar is hysterical. I can really waste time on this very simple yet really funny game. Plus it's free, so… that helps.

Here's some quick tips and strategies on how to play:

[@]jetfan[/@] I think that is way too complicated for my simple old pea brain. [@]big stoke[/@] congrats on the fatebringer. I have been lucky with guns, and I think I have all the ones from the raids as well as exotic guns ... thank god for more vault space a while back! My favorite is Thorn ... love it!

So what are your impression of the HOW ... only had the chance to do the story mission on one character and a nightfall ... similar concept as the last DLC ... use the same maps ... just run in a different directions. Liked the new nightfall as it was a new map ... have not made it to the elders yet ... still a lot of content to get to for me

LOL! It has actually does have some weird nuance to it with the strategy.

I will say though, Agar makes me rage quit like a temper tantruming 10 year old sometimes.

I don't generally like this sort of game, but the trailer for Fallout 4 looks insane: [VIDEO]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE2BkLqMef4[/VIDEO]

That's the reason I'm going to get a PS4. Been waiting for a while for this one.

Fallout 4 looks really cool ... still working my way through the House of Wolfs, but this looks like a good diversion

As soon as that thing comes out, I'm going to lose my television. I'll be stuck watching the little, low-def thing in my bedroom.

    • Maybe they have a kids table near the kitchen for team meals that they can sit at.
    • Gotta love an optimist who sees the 18 holes as half full, not half empty. Sheesh... you'd have a 2 handicap if you didn't have those multiple shanks.  Doctor, heal thyself.  Have you ever thought about hybrids, not irons (with those damn hosels)?  Do they make a hybrid gap wedge???  And Vinsk, have you ever shanked a putt... this I gotta hear...
    • I often con myself into thinking shanks are curable. They’re treatable, but not curable.
    • I always con myself into believing, no matter the circumstances, that my round should have been lower. I remember one instance in a particular when I shot a 9 over 81 and cited all the mistakes I made that cost me breaking 80. One of my playing  says "Are you kidding? The way you scrambled, you turned an 87 into an 81.".
    • Went to the range. Mostly worked out trying top speed the swing up a bit to see were it is at. Pretty decent with the irons, not so good with the driver. Then hit some pitches with the new wedges. Liking them 🙂. Still got to get use them looking thick.  Still got too slow down the backswing to feel it stop sooner. So it doesn't carry on as long. Not ready to ramp up.        A smidge closer, but could like to be a bit shorter. This was slower backswing. Back of left hand facing away more. Hands feel like they are head height (right ear) when I start the downswing. Could stand about 1 ball width further away from the ball (maybe).    Driver Swing - This one will take a while, with a lot of fricken effort. I might spend a lot of my time on the driver versus the irons. The same feel for the irons just don't work here. At least a the speed I want. So for the swing, the feeling is keeping the hands as far away from the body as possible at A3, but not by just keeping the arms straight as long as possible. The feeling was to start the downswing when the hands are head height. I think going forward, I am going to try to feel like the hands are not at head height, but more at shoulder height. Wrist bent at 90 degrees and hands are at my shoulder.  Besides that, needs to be a bit more squatty, and more right side over the ball (squishy).    Iron and more so Drive 1) Keep feeling like the downswing starts, and the hands stop ascending at or just short of shoulder height. I am starting to feel this position better. I can stop by backswing with the driver when I feel my right arm travel on way too much.  2) Feel like hands are pushing away from the body at A2 to A3. I like this feel to help feel where my hands are at in the backswing. If they just go up, and I let the right elbow break then it just carries on for days.  3) Still work on squat move with extension.
