Um yeah, so I had a fantastic time last night, first playing Firefight with tyrus, Kenai and tyrus' brother. I think tyrus might literally be a robot. He's insane with how methodical he takes out the enemy. It's remarkable. The biggest highlight for me was playing the map with the Warthog (sorry, don't remember the name) and Kenai driving the thing around while I pwned the Covenant. It made the experience so freaking fun. As many of you guys who play Halo know, my favorite part of Halo is using the vehicles because I've never been a huge fan of the mechanics of the FPS aspects. It simply moves too slow for my taste. But the vehicles are second to none. Everything from a simple ghost to a banshee to the hornet of death to the warthog, Bungie just does vehicles right.
Any way, after a while we switched to Gears and it was pretty fun. We got Polandstyle's son Christopher in the game and he and I went against Robbins and Kenai for a while. Then Grymm joined and everything was pretty fairly balanced, despite Grymm and Robbins being a man down (they're pretty robotic when it comes to Gears 1).
Everything was working well and I should've left after a match on Mansion. But I didn't and wound up playing two matches with Blankman joining. We should've separated the teams but instead Blank joined the Robbins and Grymm juggernaut team (they didn't need an extra person, trust me). And then I lost my cool on Old Bones when a nade that was past me over a barrier blew me up. I let out a profane-laced tirade that apparently included the word "c%ntbag". Yeah, well, what I didn't realize that my wife's door was open and she could hear everything. Here's a lesson to the married among us out there. Don't lose your cool in that fashion if you can avoid it. I'm not quite I've ever seen my wife so, uh, disgusted with me. So yeah, I think my image in her head went down a few notches last night as the young 20-something in my personality came roaring to life.
Other than the last two matches and the aftermath, I had a fantastic time. If only that stupid nade hadn't killed me...ah well, such is life. I'll just deal with not having a pristine image any longer with my beautifully pregnant wife.
