Hi there, welcome to my blog.

What's this all about? Well, that's a question I'm probably not even qualified to answer. I guess it started off because I had nothing better to do, but turns out that I kind of like it. So when I'm not working for The Man I like to take pictures, make videos and write about whatever else might seem like a good idea at the time.

From dragon boating to mountain biking, to road trips and travels overseas - this is me trying to enjoy life. Clock out at 5, eat, drink and don't forget to smile a lot.

Wow, more people still play MW2 than Black Ops.

I don't plan on buying that Escalation map pack because Zombies is full of haters and the new maps look like they suck. I bought the last one and what a mistake that was. Most Canadian servers that I ping well with don't even run the new maps anyway and I didn't really enjoy playing them either.

Anyway, what I wanted to say is that the most annoying thing about TDM is that you can get a lot of bad spawns, especially in smaller maps. I just hate dying and then re-dying instantly because I get randomly spawned with my back to some dude's AK-74u. Or even worse, the spawn flips and you get thrown into a group of enemies (perfect).

After playing a lot of DEM and DOM recently, I can also tell you that pretty much every game type is just TDM anyway. People don't play objectives. I'm pretty sure that they just join these lobbies because spawns are more reasonable and you also know where guys are headed, so rather than having to wander around and react hunt them down you just spam the objectives for kills.

Also, if you want to get any Pro Perk just play DEM. Last time I did it with TDM and it took forever to get anything, with DEM it's just a few hours (if you actually play the objective). Sure, your KDR might suffer a bit but I'm one plant away from Ninja Pro and a few more offense medals for Lightweight Pro after just recently buying them.

I look forward to pro ninja sound whoring and not playing the objectives either after this.

Anyhow, check this out: the top 10 games in Steam. Crazy.

It's also pretty surprising that peak gaming time is 12PM. Guess a lot of people prefer to game at lunch?
