MW3 Campaign on Veteran



I started the MW3 Campaign on Veteran difficulty yesterday. I always run through it on Regular first, just to check it out, and then try to die my way through the Veteran difficulty. Yes, die. Because I'm usually very good at dying.

But it's kind of fun playing through Veteran now, because I realize that I've become so much better! MW2 was my first FPS game ever, so that one on Veteran... Well, I did die my way through it. So much cursing, so much time being pissed off. Good times.

And now, as I'm currently working my way through MW3's Campaign on Veteran, I'm not dying my way through it. Instead of reaching a checkpoint, die five times, reach the next checkpoint, die another five times, and so on... I'm actually playing the game, not just dying.

Lol, this was so random. But it's fun. I started playing Xbox 360 two years ago, and I haven't been playing FPS for two years yet, but yet I can feel that I've become better. Hell, I can even kick my fiance's a** in Call of Duty now, and he's been playing these games for 10 years or so.

There are moments where I still die my way through the game, though. When I'm stationary. When I had to get on the f***ing mortar and hit the targets on the ground. When I had to be the gunner on the tank. And now, as I'm sitting in the back of a blue van, being chased by foot patrols, driving vehicles and hinds. I'm not able to move at all, except from shooting and reloading my weapon. And I die. And die. And die. And die.

It's frustrating!
But I'm not giving up.
Might have to take a break now, though...

3 new games

... and I'm in heaven.
I've only played one of them so far, but I'll try the second one tomorrow.
The PS2 game will have to wait until I get the proper cables and the proper TV....

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Hardened Edition
for Xbox 360.
Includes one year's membership on Call of Duty Elite with Founder status, a Juggernaut outfit for my Xbox Live avatar, collectable box and steelbox for the game disc and Cpt. John 'Soap' MacTavish's field journal.
Good stuff <3

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Collector's Edition
for Xbox 360.
Includes a 'Behind the Scenes' DVD, a map of Skyrim, artbook and a statue of the dragon Alduin. The dragon is beautiful and much bigger than I anticipated, and absolutely worth the money. If you're a huge fan and a collector of geek items, that is.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter
for Playstation 2.

The mail that made my day!

I would post the mail here, but since it's in Norwegian, I doubt you'd understand it anyhow.

Anyway, to sum it up the mail was from an online store where I buy my games and DVDs and CDs and all of that stuff. So guess what the mail was about?

That's right.
They sent my copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Hardened Edition today.
I didn't think they'd send it until tomorrow.
But they sent it today.
They sent it today!
Which means I might get it tomorrow!!


Excited for this game? Me? Nooo, what makes you think that?
Seriously, though... I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Oh, also, my fiance works at this gaming store. And he made sure that they ordered in one Collector's Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and he'll hold it for me. Because I've made very clear that I want exactly that version of the game. Just to get the dragon statue.

The Vet and The n00b

Yeah, I suck at blogging. I've been around a lot lately, so I haven't bothered to find time for the blog. Oh well. I'll try to blog a bit these next couple of days, because you won't see me for a while after the 8th.

Why not?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, of course!

Only three days left!

Aaand yeah... I love that they have Sam Worthington in that trailer, btw. I just love that guy. And his voice. He's awesome as Mason in Black Ops. Kind of cool, though... I just got home from the store where I bought a new DVD. Clash of the Titans. With Sam Worthington. Coincidence?

Anyway, now I'm going to enjoy a slice of home made pizza, salty chips, Cola Zero, the new episode of Supernatural and maybe I'll watch Clash of the Titans too. Sam Worthington AND Liam Neeson ftw <3
