Yes Gearheads, just one week from today, we will be playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 during Friday Night Fragfest. I know for a while many of us have kind of splintered off and done our own things. Gears of War 2 didn't bring us together on Fridays the way the original one did. There has been some dabbling in other games like Halo: ODST, Borderlands and many others. But outside of Gears 1, the one game that brought this community together like no other was Modern Warfare 1.
I'm hoping we'll find that to be the case again in 2009. As for this week, I don't even know what to suggest to play. I don't have L4D. Maybe some Modern Warfare to prepare for the mechanics of the new one? Although I know plenty of folks have been playing it consistently any way. My major goal has been to try and finish Uncharted 2. I'm actually pretty close as I think I'm on Chapter 23 and there are 26 chapters. The game is freaking amazing. I will say that I'm getting a little fatigued with the combat at this point though. I kind of want a little more puzzling before the end of the game and hope it's there. The thing is, this is probably the first game I can remember playing where I actually look forward to the cut scenes possibly more than actually being interactive with the game. It's not that playing the game isn't fun, but they just did such a remarkable job with the story that you can't help but be absorbed by every single cut scene. In some ways, I'm trying to plow through things just to see what happens next. I recently saw the latest Indiana Jones movie finally and this is 1,000 times more interesting than that movie was.
Any way, if you're going to be on tonight, sign up below. Even if you aren't, let's start talking about who is going to be there NEXT Friday. Oh yeah.
