CoD Black Ops

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, been addicted to CoD. Overall this is an excellent FPS which has fixed most issues associated with the others; this is not a review but simply a recognition of the few areas needing improvement in the game.

 A typo?
1. Spawning
    The very first thing that comes to mind is the first thing that happens to many people who jump into a match in progress: spawn killing. This game has some serious issues when it comes to people literally spawning within the sights of an enemy ready to shoot. This is probably the worst game I have ever played when it comes to this aspect. However there is word that the devs are working on this and should be fixed by the time the first patch comes out.

2. RC Car
    The RC-XD in itself isn't a problem and in fact is a fun way to rack up kills; the only problem is everyone uses it. Because it's a 3 kill perk it's way over used and starts giving the opponents an undeserved feeling that the map has now become 1 big cluster fuck. The solution to this would be to maybe make it a 4-5 killstreak perk, leveling the amount of people that choose it over say a counter-spy plane.

3. The Knife
     Just like in previous games it's a 1 hit kill that for some reason is faster then the speed of light. At this point in the CoD series it's becoming the most cheap, and unrealistic characteristic of the game. After pumping 5-6 shots in an enemy, if he's within arms reach...you're dead.

4. Drop Shots
    Greatly improved over other games in the series where enemies would magically reappear on the floor where they should be standing; this CoD has not completely eliminated it yet. It takes a longer time compared to others to go completely to the floor but drop shotting is a regular occurrence in this game.

    Despite my 4 points of negative feedback this game is DEFINITELY worth your money if you're into FPS's. I personally hated CoD until this game (I am extremely fed up with WW2 games being the only games on the market, and MW2 just being a glorified Counterstrike). This games attempt at originality (but yes I know there are more Vietnam games out there) is for sure better then the others and really the only good Cold War era game for sale.


Voter Time

    Hello everyone, sorry for a few days without posts. Since elections are right around the corner I figure it's a good idea to share political ideology quizzes. Many people see the election as "right vs. left" without giving any real thought to the issues at hand.

Here are my picks for the best political quizzes I could find:

1. GoToQuiz - Did a pretty good job of determining how much freedoms you would like to enjoy
2. Smallest Political Quiz - This is the ideal format for such a quiz however it failed to bring up many other important topics (ex: guns, abortion, immigration)
3. Political Compass - I really wouldn't say this is the best just because of how stupid some of the questions are phrased but this is one of the more popular quizzes of its type.

    Personally I am Libertarian and damned proud of it. I feel that no one has the authority to tell others how to live their lives (so long as it doesn't harm others). And though it may sound extremely controversial I do often argue that Republicans and Democrats are the same, and America has been (recently) functioning as a 1 party system called "Big Government...How Do You Want It?". I say this on the basis that the only thing either side has really managed to accomplish is building a bigger federal system. Thoughts?

Also check out the poll on the side of my blog- "Which way would you prefer to vote?"

I'll leave you with this:
