so i just read that Lost planet 2 has 4 player co-op , just like most things on the market nowadays.
Video game developers seem to be getting the fact that people love co-op , probably spurred on by the success of L4D.
Lost planet 2 devs are capcom , as is Resi 5 (which also has co-op…) , does this mean we can look forward to Dead Rising 2 co-op? i fucking hope so.
Also. Dawn of War 2 in co-op is beast , odd how it works – in a kinda dota gameplay style but its a very nice addition. Now if only i could get the online play working….
Also part 2 , Scout update for TF2 is out , my god there are so many scouts… So… so… many….
Unless you feel like achievement hunting (which is actually surprisingly hard due to the way the scout achievements are made) your best bet is to get heavy with natascha, engie or pyro since theres also a double jump achiement for them to get which means everyone bounces around like a motherfucker (making soldier/demo harder to use) , spy is pointless unless you go after enemy heavy/medic’s , sniper (as i found out earlier) gets SWAMPED with scouts , they literally all charge at you with baseball bats out and you get raped.
Kind of pissed about the achievements , i want the sandman but i dont see myself getting 15 achievements any time soon, even considered an achievement server , then i remembered im not a game failing faggot- cheating online is just another way of announcing that you’re not good enough to kill people yourself after all.
edit. oh yeah , forgot to link this..
They put some new soundclips in for the scout :3
Rundown for people who cant be bothered to watch the video…

Frances left about an hour ago.
She was here for 5 days… (sinces wednesday)
I didnt do any work on monday or tuesday… or the weekend…
I have 3 tests to revise for , 1 Lab report due for tuesday , research to do for my poster project worth 30% of a module due tomorrow morning, tutorial work due tomorrow morning….
Yeah… im under the impression i must sleepwalk into the common room at night and play street fighter because i pretty much woke up today and somehow became amazing at the game.
The other day i was about even with some people , now its pretty much domination.
Couldnt beat seth the other day , this morning i beat it on hardest , without losing a round.
everyones afraid to play me now :<
Paddy bought it on launch day and its been in the common room since.
Graphics , sounds , style , all that shit is awesome.
Short of basically giving SFA3 the same graphical treatment , i cant think of much else i can critisize on.
On a subnote – Seth , the final boss , is fucking bullshit.
NIccuh is a cheating bastard and i refuse to acknowledge his wins. He’s just a teleporting grabbing bastard who finishes you off by sucking you into his belly and giving you the washing machine treatment before firing you out at the screen. total BS.
I like to think im the current Cryfield champion , although Tom does put up a good fight most of the time.
So yesterday night was mostly spent at the grad for ed’s birthday , pretty much everyone bought him shots , he ended up drinking 11 shots and 3 pints. i heard him throwing up at 3am.
9 o clock alarms went off , i switched them off promptly.
Woke up at 11:30. lecture was 10-11.
and now im installing FEAR2 , which is taking for-fucking-ever
I also finished downloading Pop n music 16 the other day , but i forgot to bring my PS2 controller so i cant really play that well , i never realised how much of a dick keyboards are when it comes to pressing 4 keys at the same time.
also just dawned on me how loud my keyboard has become , pretty sure it wasnt this loud before – as an additional bonus im pretty sure every time i press spacebar there is some sort of background noise , perhaps the table echoing or the room shaking or something , i have no idea.
ps. For anyone who didnt experience black sheep on vent the other day , i suggest you get some friends together , have a few drinks and then reeeeeelaaaaaxxxxxxxxxxxx
Expecting frances over later today , just in time for me to start worrying about my 6 hour lab tomorrow – nize.
