Do you ever finish a game and don’t know what to play next? Man, I agonize over this sometimes. Should I go back and play some more Oblivion, but if I do will I not want to play Fallout 3 when I get it for Christmas? Do I want to finish Final Fantasy X-2 or find more prizes in Little Big Planet? When in doubt, I play Call of Duty 4.
Now, I usually play Search and Destroy, but lately I just like to kill people. Probably the stress at work. Anyhoo, like most players, there are some maps that I just flat out suck at. Creek, for instance. I won’t even play on it anymore. Snipers rule there and I can’t snipe to save my virtual life. The only fun I ever had on that map was hiding in the cave and shooting people as they passed through, like a homicidal toll booth worker.
So to satisfy my kill urges, I played Mercenary Team Deathmatch. The map was Countdown, the one with the missile launchers and around the map with the sheds circling the edges. And I PWNED everyone. I mean, wow. I could not even believe it. It started off slow: 3 kills, called in my UAV, hung around the edges and caught some people in crossfire. 5 kills, called in an airstrike that missed, as usual. 7 kills, got the helicopter, which put me at 10 straight kills, no deaths.
At this point, I started to get excited. I knew I was into the groove (yes, I quoted a Madonna song. The bitch is crazy, but I love that song) but I didn’t let up. I never worry about kill-to-death-ratio, since I play Headquarters mode, which is a surefire to destroy your KDR. I know some people also die on purpose in order to get the streak going again for the UAV, airstrike and chopper, but those people are losers. Real men never die on purpose, so I kept going.
And I got 26 kills in a row before I died.
The game ended with me having 27 kills, 3 assists and 1 death. Plus, I completed 3 challenges, two of them involving killing every member of the other team. I gained over 900 experience points in one game. I pwned.
Of course, I had 6 kills and 12 deaths in the next round, but who’s counting?
So what about you guys? Any tales of major pwnage you want to share?
