Goddamnit! I bet he was about bloody twelve as well, little bugger! Just picked me out from everyone else and decided to keep me dead. I spawned in a few different places but after a minute or so he bloody found me, what makes it worse is the little sod (I am still sticking with the idea heís a bloody kid) mÍlťed me for about three or four of the kills too. Not to worry, as I wasnít in my zone last night anyway, Iíll get him tonight instead, I'm gonna be on form tonight, preperation is the key. Bag of munchies, tin of beer, kids stuff tidied out of the way, dog sedated (gets in the way of the sensor) and attitude switched to "full on". Iím on pretty much every night to be honest, convincing myself that the other players I see online MUST be adults as itís late (UK time 10pm onwards) and kids would be in bed with associated teddies, transformer toys and a copy of Big Ďní Busty stashed under the mattress. That way I donít feel immature sat in my living room swearing at some pixilated figures on my TV set and breaking down in tears each time I see my XP score at the end of a game.
Level 17 now and running round with a Stauger or whatever itís called, still canít get this hip fire thing though. If someone gets too close it appears my tactic is to aim at the sky and run round in a circle whilst spraying bullets everywhere (watch out pigeons) except at the guy frantically trying to slap me about the head with the butt of his gun. I eventually stop panicking and think about dropping a grenade in my death throes. Just as Iím about to do that ďThwack!Ē Iím dead. It's either that scenario or a really irritating red cross in the middle of the screen telling me that I'm crap and can't even move in any direction unless I relax, aim at the sensor bar and then run like hell. Is it just me that this happens to? Is there a cure?
Yes Iím too old to be this addicted to a game, yes Iím getting a little better, yes Iím of a certain age group (letís just say over 30Öand then some) and no, Iím not going to let that little sod get me again, not againÖÖat least not tonight anyway.
Iíll be back on tonight and no doubt back here tomorrow, might even update this regularly so you guys can either laugh and poke fun or relax in the knowledge thereís someone else out there thatís having the same issues as you.
Itís a stupid game anyway
But Iíll be on again tonight from about 10pm GMT
