so i have this game, right? and it's supposed to be better than mw2 in every way.

well, here's what i like about it.
-dedicated servers means less time spent waiting in lobbies and more time playing games
-without stopping power, more guns have a chance to shine, and more perks are useable instead of attempting to maximize deadliness with stopping power
-fewer explosives. i like not having to worry about tubes and launchers everywhere
-the ak-47 feels like every other ak-47 i've used in call of duty, best assault rifle~
-leveling is faster, prestiging seems pretty attractive
-it's a new game

and here's what i don't like about it.
-lag. lag lag lag. performance issues galore, i turned the game's graphics way down and took my resolution down to 1088x612, and it still runs at a meager 25 fps. moreover, the game freezes up every so often, leaving me to a beautiful death, and every time i encounter an enemy, framerate drops to approximately 15 fps.
-although turning down the graphics doesn't help, i still think everything looks ugly. animations don't feel as fluid as mw2 (framerate aside), guns sound like popcorn and look like cardboard, and maps look washed out and boring. if mw2 was too shiny and plasticky, blops is too matte and papery.
-wait time in between games is so fast that you have to actually leave a server in order to edit classes and stuff like that. great idea, give us a complicated, nearly illegible stat screen that we only have 10 seconds to survey between matches, and not be able to change classes for upcoming maps either.
-without stopping power i'm wasting a lot more bullets to kill people (or switching away from a target too fast), yet i feel like i'm dying just as quickly as if everyone else used stopping power. silencers seem like an awful idea at anything but close range combat.
-claymores trip way too quickly, and without tubes, now everyone's just spamming hand grenades everywhere.
-mw2 ak-47 was much better looking and the iron sights were easier
-leveling feels more grindy than before since you need to buy all the crap you unlock with cod points anyway. why not just put everything up for purchase and keep leveling as a way to track actual experience, instead of using it as a two-tier unlock system? feels stupid that you have to first unlock things via levels/challenges, and then buy them to ACTUALLY unlock them for use.
-for a new game it runs like shit

final decision:
it's not as fun as mw2, like i expected. worse graphics, boring weapons, boring gameplay, boring maps. yet, the one thing that i DID expect out of it was less lag (iwnet bad hosts) and less time between matches (iwnet taking forever to find games), and both of those were awfully messed up: game performance is bad, with respects to framerate performance on my machine, and connecting to other players, and even connecting to servers; also, wait times in between matches is WAY too fast. i want to be able to stay on a server and at least tweak my classes a little, like maybe have time to purchase a new weapon when i level up?

i uninstalled black ops today and reinstalled mw2, which i plan to be playing until they patch the performance issues, at least. black ops is definitely unplayable now, but what will determine its success vs. modern warfare 2 is how much work treyarch is willing to do to improve it from this point forward.

so here's a summary for the records

been spending a lot of time just going for pleasant riverside rides on the hayabusa, doing a little bit of reading and gaming, and a lot of listening to music!
thinking about my plans for the future, and what friendship really is. what does a friend do for you? just because you talk to someone every day, does that make them a friend? do intentions mean more than actions?

what is success?

anyhow, i've been tweeting a lot recently (strange) so that's probably why i haven't written much here. gonna eat some nikuman and figure out how i want to waste my time tonight.

1. how long have you been playing music
13 years, but only 5 years though if you want to start at performing original compositions and becoming multi-instrumentalist. picked up bass/guitar then, played only classical piano before that.

2. describe the most psychedelic thing you've done
probably hitting salvia and a 2-foot bong freshman year to pink floyd's "several species" while some random dude was enjoying an acid trip in the same room. he later sat up, introduced himself as an ra, and described the world as being literally pink frosted cake, and i decided "this is where i want to be a year from now".

so i did it, sophomore year i became an ra and smoked a lot it was s1ck

3. what's a good song to bone to
death from above 1979 - you're a woman, i'm a machine
i half chose that for the fact that it's actually a good sexin' song that mixes well with various narcotics, and also because title

4. there is a futagirl wearing glasses and a victorian dress on your bed. what do you do
probably grope her breasts just enough to feel extremely violated but also mildly aroused, and then tie her up and leave her in my brother's room

5. so is 渚カヲル the shit or what
yehh, i'm a little disappointed he hasn't gotten more screentime in the eva reboots so far. for that reason i'm currently more a fan of 真希波マリ but we will have to see later~~~~

if you want a nice five-in-one writer's block, comment here and i will provide.

1. i really, really want recettear: an item shop's tale now. not just the demo, but the full-fledged $20/$30 game...which i haven't deposited enough money (nor wish to) in order to buy. gug
2. i'm now following seitokai yakuindomo, meaning my watching schedule is even more packed than just one-per-day now, not including the fact that i'm slowly watching sora wo kakeru shoujo~

it's so fast omg...

acceleration is incredible as expected, and the handling is even better than i dreamed
in terms of size, it's actually slightly smaller than i would've liked but it's comfortable enough to fit my specifications. leaning forward full-on isn't a problem at all.

really want to bring this with me upstate come january, i'll have to figure out how to do that nonsense though
