      So, how many people have this game?

      I have to say, overall i'm pleased. Sure, its another World War II shooter, but the Medal of Honor series have always been good (except for Rising Sun of course). While the Single player missions really don't have a story to them, they are fun, especially once you start upgrading your weapons. For example, you can't loose with a sniper rifle that also launches grenades. You'd think a bayonnet on a shotgun would be redundant, but it is so amazing that you'll soon end up just slashing instead of shooting.

      the health is also interesting. its divided into 4 quadrants. your health will regenerate with in a quadrant, but if you loose a full quadrant worth of health, you will need to find a health pack to replace it. for example, if was shot so much that i only had 51% health, i could regenerate only back to 75% health. It works out nicely since you'll never be within a hairs breath of death for 5 minutes, but you won't be able to regenerate all your health (which is good, since now when you injure people, they can't just hide and come back full strength.)

      Additionally, when your weapon "levels up", the game goes blurry and in slow motion. During this time you have infinite health and ammo (for like, 10 seconds), and depending on how lucky you are, it will do this in the middle of the action. For example, on the Nimegan Bridge level, there are several germans with Panzerschreks (german equivalent of a bazooka). I had a B.A.R, and i just unloaded my clip at them. I apperently killed one guy, and leveled up, and in slow motion, i was firing all these rounds whiles strafing, as 3 ROCKETS FLEW PAST MY FACE! It was such a kickass moment.

      The only annoying thing in the game are the elite Nazi Storm troopers. You'll know when you see them in the game. if you had to fight the master chief while he was carrying a turret, thats what it would be like.

      The multiplayer is awesome to. being a veteran of Allied Assault on the PC, i was so happy when i saw they remade some of my favorite old maps, like Remagen. I had played that map so much i knew where everything was, and i was already in the game and having fun right from the start.

      Medal of Honor's multiplayer never fails to entertain. the moments you get in are classic, and it is intuitive. true to MoH's way of doing things, there are so many crazy places you can hide and do stuff. Its absolutely fun, and i dare say it might cut into my Halo 3 time. The only dissappointment is that the rifles don't feel nearly as powerful as they used to be. In allied assault, the bolt action rifles were worth it, because they are were a one/two hit kill, and it was easy to shoot them. maybe its because is an xbox and not a PC version, but i found it hard to hit things like i used to, and even at point blank range, rounds seemed to do less damage unless you used the aiming function, which garunteed many one hit kills. I suppose if you are fast enough, you can win. Still, if you knew what you were doing, you could snipe people with larger guns like the BAR and StG 44. lots of fun.

      What are your thoughs?

    • My latest work

      12 years ago

      CAB

      Decided to show off my latest modeling efforts, an Amtrak E60MA , and NJ transit E60CH electric locomotive.

      What makes these models special is that it is not commercially produced, at all, or ever. I modified it from a similar undecorated E60CP locomotive. they started out like this:

      30 year old kits with no motors.

      e60cpsthedawnofdccandprtq9.jpg

      One is now an E60MA. This is the toughest one, because it required the most modifications, and the most detail parts. The harded part is filling in all the holes on the nose, since the headlights and things there are not present on the MA version. It is probably the best E60MA model out there, atleast from what i have seen, and i know i'm probably going to far by saying it, but really, i have attained a level of detail that has been unmatched by anyone else's E60MA model that i have seen in the past few years. All i really need to do is fix the decals, and touch up some paint.

      finaltouches003jpgeditedx1.jpg

      Here is the E60CH. I still need to finish detailing this one to the same extent as the other, although the E60CH is alot closer to the CP model (in fact they are nearly identical on the outside). I have the parts, i'm just taking my time.

      73007013lp7.jpg

      I hope you've enjoyed my work, and while you guys might not be crazy train modelers like i am, you all have the appreciate the kind of work it takes to build this stuff. The also not only have Motors now, but computer chips (DCC decoders) with sound capability. all i need right now is this locomotive's sound, which isn't readily available.

      so yeah, perhaps you guys have heard of the 6 Albanians they caught who werer going to attack Fort Dix in NJ. Its a big deal for me atleast because i literally live right in between the whole mess. From what i've heard on MSNBC and the radio, the people were home based in Cherry hill NJ, and were going to attack the Army Base. The Unsung hero they talk about who tipped the FBI off is in the town of Mount Laurel, just next door to me. It freaks me out that there were terrorists right here near me. Lukcily they got caught.

      Looks like this whole 9/11 awareness is really paying off.

      I demand people join my halo 2 clan, and my BF2 one that i plan to make if anyone is interesting. I need people to play with. even if you don't want to be in the clan, send in your gamer tags, so i may add you. i play Halo 2 and call of duty 2 often. I unforutneatley don't possess many Xbox 360 games, so if anyone has any good games ( i'm already aware of Gears of War) i would love suggestions. I'm open to anything at this point, short of viva pinata.

      i alos preodred Halo 3 legendary and crackdown ( not so much for the beta, but just to try something new. the beta is an added bonus)

      my gamertag is in my info, add me now!

      and now for random pictures!

    • Whats on your Christmas list?

      12 years ago

      CAB

      Yeah, if you think i'm early, take a look at the nearest super market/department store.

      anyway, I have a few things on my line up.

      First and Foremost, i want a Xbox 360. if i don't have one by the time the next Halo game comes out, people will be in extreme pain. in fact, anything halo is good for me.

      I need a new MP3 player to replace my old one, and i definitely need more sturdy headphones, considering how easily those things get damaged.

      i'm not really sure though what i want.... most of the things i want are hobby related... (see below), and its tough to get what i want in that department, because there can be very specific things involved. It has to fit the right time period, be the same size, match the railroad, be of equal quality, all of this stuff.

      SOMEONE GIVE ME AN IDEA OF WHAT I MIGHT WANT

      yeah, i realize you don't know me, but i'm curious what you think i might want, this could be interesting....

      *BEGINNING OF MODEL TRAIN RANT*

      after that, it gets fuzzy. I would really like a new locmotive or 2 for my model railroad, and some more freight cars, as well as some NJ D.O.T./Erie Lackawanna commuter cars. A blue bird U34CH and maybe a SIRT ( Staten island Rapid tranist) S4 would be on my lists. some old Bachman E60CPs to replace my old one would be nice. I definitely need HO cars and trucks. that Genisis SD45-2 looks pretty good.

      i've also been thinking of gasking for catenary, or automated signal systems.

    • Tv and You: Who is really in control?

      in Forums > Tv and You: Who is really in control? | Follow this topic

      CAB

      One of my classes at school is American Popular Culture. one of the topic in class was wether or not TV controls us, or do we control TV.

      I was thinking on one hand, people control TV, because TV has to do whatever it can to please us, and when it doesn't work, they try something new. I think when the first new episodes a of Family Guy when it came back on air even pointed all those fox shows that were cancelled in between old and new seasonse of family guy (and that list was extensive)

      At the same time, people freak out about all these reality TV shows and all that other nonsense. others also make wild claims that because kids were exposed to things like violence they might be inspired to mimic what they see on TV.

      What do you guys think? Does TV control and dominate us, or do we Control and dominate TV?

    • Why illegal immigrants annoy me.

      13 years ago

      CAB

      Yeah, i'm putting a sensitive topic in my journal today.


      In Riverside, NJ, the local governmnet made a law against housing or employing Illegal immigrants. This in turn caused a whole mess of illegal immigrants and their supporters to go out and have a rally. the towns peopel actually rallied back, which was cool. However, i really got pissed when people accused the town for being racist for making illegal immigrant laws. Illegal immigrants can be anyone, its not a race thing. they are using peoples ignorance as a weapon, becaus many assume illegals are mexicans. its just retarded.

      the thing i don't udnerstand is, how can people who illegally break into our country demand rights? I mean, if they want to play it that way, they broke our laws and deserve to be punished for it. Its not that i don't feel bad of them, i know the conditions must have sucked alot for them to try and get here. It just annoys me though, because lately in NJ they have been going in groups and even suing people ( which if they admit to being illegal immigrants, why aren't their asses being deported?).

      I don't get it. and apperently, the radio (yes i listen to the radio!) people have been claiming some of these guys are here not to work, but to just shake up the government.

      the worst thing about it is while i suppose some illegal immigrants put together an ok life, I've seen whole towns of poor illegal immigrants that more or less recreate the same situations of poverty they were tryng to escape in the first place, short of the maniacal government they left behind.


      I don't think they really improove society. I'm sure someone will say "oh well they do the jobs no one else will do!" WRONG! they do the jobs cheaper so that there is no incentive to higher citizens. if the pay were higher, people would do those jobs. You can always have money if you are willing to get your hands dirty.

      Why is it that canada thinks they are so great?

      No wonder 1/2 the world hates you guys! Narrow minded Yanks make me sick. As a Canadian, I am loved MOST the world over. Can you say that? This is nothing but a defense of big corporation Disney. Notice how NOBODY refuted the junk food in schools or smoking comparison! Probably because you CANT. You want controversy and battle? FORE!!!!!!!! I am going to watch World Cup Football now.....no, not with uprights, you fools!


      Seriously, who are they trying to fool? they are just as loved as we are, even though they don't want to admit it. In reality, the wolrd probably doesn't give a shit about canada. but thats not the problem i have with this person.

      OH NO...

      This guy crossed the line! based on 2 peopel who didn't agree with him, he called us "narrow minded yanks".

      Do you really want to know why? Its because he thought the movie CARS taught kids to be unsafe around the railroad, and not everyone agreed with him. Some guy said they thought there are more important things in the entertainment industry to worry about other than grade crossing safety, and the canadian guy just started going about "how idiotic" the man was because he didn't agree with him.

      the man tried to elaborate on what he said, but that only resulted in the canadian guy claiming that "you are minimizing my concerns because you think yours are more imporant than mine!" and starts going off about how kid's whos parents are in iraq might not care about buckling their seat belt, and baasicly gibbering nonsense. In the end, he was pretty much saying there should be a "safety Reminder" for every little thing, and that god forbid something dangerous happened in a kids show with talking cars. I'm sure he wants to destroy just about every other cartoon out there to. because living in a pineapple under water probably isn't helthy, and kids are to dumb not to try it!

      Amd so when more people disagree, it results int eh quoe on top of this journal page. But you know what the most horrible thing is, this canadian guy has himself fooled. Wasn't it narrow-minded of him to say all american were narrow-minded fools, when he only based this on 2 people? what a jackass.

      he gives the good canadians out there a bad name. I call on all canadians to beat this guy up. he is making you all look like idiots.

      It's to reduce noise from the tail rotor. The Apache is designed to fly high and come down low at night to basically scare the fuck out of whoever it's shooting at. You don't really hear it until it's right on top of you. It won't exactly be right on top of you since it's gotta be at altitude to shoot its gun or missiles but you get the idea. They also provide better tail balance for the airframe.

      Inever said it did happen just to me.You are the one implying that I am selfish and no reason period forhateing the male sex. b/c of the male sex 2 of my friends were raped, cousin molested, turned down from a job b/c Idont " put out" lost my mom to a drunk man who was driving, my dog shot just for a fun afternoon target practice, Beat up when I was ten b/c I was un popular. Can you say you are honestly proud of your opressive sex.? I think YOU need to do some self reflecting b'cI still see no reason to stop hateing men.

      get smart! Open your eyes to the world around you. You seem to have such a basic view of things, you dont' seem to be going at your full potential. thew World neer seems to stop hitting me with these "reality checks" .

      ! I am a straight a fucking student already on my way to Denver University. Your talking to me about potential?

      "With that kind of additude, you'll never be successful on the dating field"
