Fallout: New Vegas is pretty cool. It's very similar to Fallout 3 in many ways though it's good to see some humour return to the series. They still need to work on those facial expressions though.

OMG the game is ace...zombies all over the wild west. There's a bit in the game when a shopkeeper blames the zombie plague on the Jews and the British...and then he gets eaten of course...so far I've saved about 10 towns from the zombie menace...even the animals have turned zombie.

Is that a spoof or an actual game?

I seem to have broken my Team Fortress 2 stat line today. My previous best score ever was 48, and through a blue moon of magic circumstances, that jumped to 277. Currently my stat line reads Best by Engineer: 277, best by any other class: 18.

Querty is likely the only one who finds this the least bit interesting lol.

daftbeaker plays TF2 as well, so he should understand. I wonder what caused that, if it's some kind of data error? :shrug:

Once I was alone, waiting for people to join the server on the map Badwater, and I was playing as a demoman, who I play rarely, and only have like 6 hours logged as. I ended up pushing the cart all the way to the end, getting all the capture points possible, which is 40. So then my most points was 40 as a demoman, whereas the next highest was like 24?

Either later that day, or the very next day, there was a fluke of a chance on the same map, but where I was playing as Heavy, and I managed to get a lot of cap points, as well as the regular kind, and got 43. So it all worked out, but it's still very weird. I may re-set my stats next time they update the game, I know people who re-set stats every time there's an update.

no not an error, just a huge timer and a sea of really stupid opponents. I had a level 3 gun up and in 30 min nobody took it down, nobody good played soldier, and I had it in a spot that was a real pain for crappy demomen. They had a tele in a little hut, and I just killed everyone who came out of it. Like the entire other team rage quit 2-3 times (cept the engie with the tele I guess) and each new team died in waves. I had over 600 points for the round, including 155 kills in one life, 79 kills from one sentry, and like 130 teleports. The announcer kept shouting "holy shit".

I was up on a balcony on the Mountain Lab map, which is pretty much exactly like the Mann Manor Haloween map.

Now every stat I have outside of that round looks just pathetic lol. I went and played on your server afterward just for some humility. On yours I fit in, and am definitely middle of the pack at best. Engie tricks that get me 10-11 kills on other servers get me like 2-4 on yours. :facepalm:

TBH tho I'm glad I can mostly hold my own on your server now, lol. That first night I tried to play on it when I was brand new and it was just a slaughter. I end up playing Pyro a ton on yours, because a) the people who play demo and soldier on your server are too good for me to get away with much as engie, and b) there are more spies on your server than I've ever seen anywhere.

I kept getting shot by the sniper when I played Team Fortress...good game though but I prefer Warhawk. There are so many zombies in Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare it makes Resident Evil look like a game of Pacman. It does help when you're riding one of the four horses of the Apocalypse: War the flaming horse which sets the zombies alight.
