    Black ops was so much better than mw3!

    Sup, thanks for the serve tips. Ive been practicing deuce court serves with legs aimed at target, the milos wrist.curl/uncurl wih a marat step to actually put serve in box. Too bad it wont be tested here. Only opponenet will be a ball machine. My coach flew to kentucky for family emergency so no training while in fla. Trying not to stuff my face too much but Nanna makes us go out to eat every night. Osso bucco, steak, grouper, lobster, stone crabs, it goes on and on.! Gettin fatter!

    definitely. put it on Cl. u will get plenty of hits. but these types of cars usually attract lowballers. don't say i didn't warn u.

    also if u have a mechanic, ask him or her. u will get plenty of offers as well.

    I used to play COD. Played MW(COD4), Skipped WaW (not a WWII fan), Played MW2 and Black Ops. I got burned out on black ops and skipped out on buying most of the expansion packs.

    I currently have MW3, but I don't like the multiplayer - just more of the same except worse. Single player was slightly entertaining.

    Anyway, I switched to Battlefield 3 as my main FPS.

    Right now I'm working on Mass Effect 3. Their horde-mode multi-player is strangely addictive with random unlocks and leveling the attributes of the characters in different classes - each with different powers. Plus the single player campaign is epic.

    I was thinking on getting mass effect three. But Ive been pretty deep in reckoning. And when im done with that I gotta catch up on my assiasins creed. I never bought the fourth one and need to play that before AC III comes out.

    I dont exactly know why the new one is three when it is actually 5. But who doesnt want to hack up some brits with tomahawks.

    I agree with the latest MW. It's really hard to play. It's just too complicated nowadays. The guns and attachments are way too complicated. I think if I was still in my early 20's, i'll play better.

    I am still doing Black Ops on 360. I've prestiaged 3 times, and I regret it everytime. This time, I just stacked all my Perk's and I am doing better. Sometimes I feel like I play against people which have 10x better reflexes than me. I would hate to play these ppl on the tennis courts.

    better not to get started. I'd would much rather have a nice collection of racquets. If I did, at least I can sell my racquets.

    I still have my playstation in the garage somewhere.

    i'd suggest for you to stay away from video games as well.. let JRS be your lesson as his only claim to asian is eating chinese takeout and yet he can't stay away from all the FPS.

    i've been playing the funk out of reckoning. fun but way too easy even on hard. but it's a nice change up from dark souls. mass effect 3 is on my list of games to try.

    downs - it's a funny world when nerds are gonna look down on you for being gaming illiterate. maybe this is why no american man has been number 1 in a decade.

    zap, i thought we've established that you are a crazy mofo so the standard model does not apply to you.. however quantum physic model does define you.
