In my wild natural desire to join a group of people and kill stuff, I thought I’d look for a free FPS online game. I figured since there was “Combat Arms”, there had to be another free online first person shooter game available somewhere. Sure enough, I found “Cross Fire”.
I haven’t played Combat Arms in a long time; I got kind of tired of how anyone who isn’t dumping money into buying the special weapons is at a HUGE disadvantage. I also didn’t like how Combat Arms became almost completely unplayable due to the fact that damn-near everyone was using all the possible cheats at once. People were flying, running around at the speed of sound, and could see you through walls. It was playing paintball against the X-Men only without wise-cracking Canadians and hot chicks in skin-tight suits.
I actually had some fun playing ‘Cross Fire’. I heard plenty of accusations of others cheating (or “UR A HACKKER NUB LOLZ!”… hell I just noticed that screenshot I posted has some whiny dweeb bitching..), but because there were times I totally kicked ass, I don’t think cheating is really too big of an issue. Now granted I only played the ‘Recruit’ servers, where you’re pitted against other newbs, but for some reason I doubt that the higher-ranked servers will be full of cheaters.
One huge positive note, this game allows you to kick people out of your rooms, which gives more incentive to not cheat, since you can just kick cheaters out instead of just calling them ‘fags’. One slightly negative note is the same sort of lame feature that’s essentially ‘pay for in-game weapons’ feature that’s also in Combat Arms. I personally hate games that have this option; while I can see the urge for developers to have this feature since the game is built/hosted completely free, it’s just another unfair advantage in life for spoiled rich kids.
I imagine fucks that look like this behind a computer monitor with twice my HP, better guns, and their college paid for.
I recommend this game to anyone who has time to kill, a thirst for blood, and lack of willpower to do anything constructive for a while.

Ok as you all have been able to tell, I’ve been slightly absent the past few weeks. Honestly I can attribute a lot of this to EVE Online, yet another portion of it has been checking out new games. New games are always exciting, especially if you’ve beat the last one ,or as in my situation, need something else to do while you wait for your skill training to complete in EVE. So I have garnered a couple of games here I have not mentioned before for you to check out for yourselfs.
Diablo III….Yeah, you heard me right. The game was recently announced by Blizzard and already they have flooded their sites with the announcement and fan fare. A pretty sweet cinematic trailer is available on the home site, pretty intense, but what would be expected from Blizzard.
If your a fan of the series then you know that Diablo 2 was a huge success. I hav’nt spent much time in the forums and site to actually find out whats going on, but if you remember that one guy whos name happens to be Deckard Cain, well, let’s just say he’s in it again, and really old. Nonetheless fans of the Diablos should be happy that its newest title will be playable over Battle.net free as with other versions. Also Starcraft 2 is on its way as well, seems Blizzard has been working pretty hard getting some new stuff out. However from what I can tell there are no plans to release a new MMO like World of Warcraft, though I have heard rumors about a Starcraft MMO in the works. Guess we will have to wait and see.
A new game currently in Pre-Open Beta stage called Combat Arms by Nexon is sure to interest you if your into the first person shooter genre of games. This game sports some nifty features such as character customization such as choosing your cammies (desert, snow, urban, green etc…) and offers over 30 real world gun types. Weapon modification is also pretty sweet allowing players to add scopes, suppressors and extra magazines to their weaponry, as well, as you play the game you progress in experience points, gaining ranks. And if your into clan warfare Combat Arms allows players to create and join game clans, or message their friends with an in-game messaging system. I’ve been playing the game for the last day and I must say that it is extremely fun to play.
