Please hack me I need it!

Just one of the many kids on ps3 who message me asking for Modern Warfare 2 hacks.

10th prestige hack anyone? There’s a ready market of players who want to cheat their way to the top!

BTW – the new WordPress app for Android kicks ass!

Somehow I’m known for “hacked lobbies” on Xbox 360. How the hell did that happen?

While playing Bad Company 2 with Dvotee, NorseValkyr1e and macmanx this evening a random guy from my friendslist joined our party and asked about hacked lobbies.Why would I get you into a hacked lobby? I hate the thought of them, and don’t even play Modern Warfare 2 any more!

I think I should clean up my XBL friends list. Only people I know and/or have played BC2 with survive the cull!

L4D2: Modern Warfare 2 Vacant Survival

“Nah, they’re probably just part of the background.”

This is a short clip from one of the first games myself and David played the other night in Left 4 Dead 2. The map is a remake of the Modern Warfare 2 map Vacant and any MW2 players will immediately recognise it.

Music is Scary Tale in Olde York by the Surf Sluts.

TyeWebb’s recording of a later campaign game in the Carnival with me and David. I think this map is paid-for DLC on Xbox but comes free with the game on PC and Mac. I presume it’s one of those “DLC we had to charge for on Xbox” that Valve complained about. Then how did DICE release Map Pack 7 for free then? Did they swallow the money Microsoft charged them to release that patch?

Hacked Modern Warfare 2 lobbies on PS3

Well, this sucks.

David stumbled into a hacked MW2 lobby on Playstation 3, not Xbox 360. When I first saw it I thought it might be connected to the recently announced discovery of the PS3 root keys. But I was giving the script kiddies too much credit. Even with the keys they wouldn’t have a clue what to do with them. They’ll have to wait until the smart kids write the tools that take advantage of the situation.

Meanwhile, I went searching for bushigans devils lobby v3 and found this video from October, well before any keys were discovered…

Silly, stupid cheaters.

So someone is trying to reach level 70 in Modern Warfare 2 without killing anyone. Good luck to you Glen McCracken but I loved and appreciated this comment:

Every time I play Modern Warfare 2, I do it without killing anyone. My aim could use some work.

Mode Pack #6 is apparently coming to Bad Company 2 next week according to this post. No details, and I haven’t checked the BfBC2 store but it fits in with their monthly giveaway of new maps mode packs.

So, we’re not going to see new maps. That’s clear enough already. What would you like to see? If I was a betting man I’d say we’ll get rush on Laguna Alta which could be like rush on White Pass. Alpha will be so close to the attackers deployment battle will be joined as soon as anyone moves an inch.
Or they’ll make a mode pack for SDM or squad rush and everyone will go YAAAAWWWWWNNNNN!

I was just thinking the other day how the lack of a level editor is such a missed opportunity for players. The Doom and Quake series had level editors, other shooters from that era had them too. I remember downloading mods for Doom 2 and having a blast! Are games companies so scared we won’t buy their next big product just because there’s a level editor (and hopefully active community) in a game? Really?
Do they lack the imagination to make a better sequel and feel threatened by amateurs designing levels? Do they think we won’t splash the cash if we have new levels for their old game?

The average age of games players is now in the early thirties. That means they’re probably working, have a family and have (some) disposable income. Sure, getting maps for free is great, but what about a map store? The Apple app store proved that people will buy in their droves if the price is right. Apple make a fortune from it and there’s a huge community around it. People talk all the time about their favourite apps. Why the hell haven’t EA or Activision replicated this for their respective franchises? All we get is what the company blesses and produces itself.

Would you buy maps built by amateurs or even semi-pros who didn’t work for the game publisher? What if they were priced like app store products? US$0.99 for a map?

Such a missed opportunity.

Edit: I forgot about Starcraft II. That has a level editor of some sort doesn’t it?
