At least they didn't make them play BF3, oh the horror!/s

Would they hire someone who team kills?

Only if they do it for the greater good. ;)

Of course, look at infinity ward. Activision is all about ruining a game.

"However, I can’t really get behind the first part. If Call of Duty multiplayer can show a person’s personality, then a hardcore camper who sits in a corner watching one door the whole game would be a coward"
Depends how you look at it. I could flip that over and say he is tactical. Finds a coke point an sits and waits. It is an unusual way to find out personalities but I guess it is a good way to find out team players and help each other. Someone who goes alone is probably not the best team player. Also leadership who rises above the pack and the other team mates respect and follow.

Defensive play with having choke points in mind is different than extreme camping where a camper goes into any room just to sit in a corner until they die without any strategic play.

On the one hand this really makes sense. On the other hand it reminds me of how GameStop employees I know are always complaining that their superiors force them to pretend they like Xbox and COD regardless if they do or not....... O_o

WOW, never heard of that before.

You don't remember how people were complaining on N4G and other gaming forums about how Gamestop's employees would really try to push the Xbox360 as well as it's products on them even after repeatedly refusing or even after saying they didn't own one? If I dig I probably could find some threads here. Hell, that still happens at my Gamestop till this day though.

"Would you like to preorder Forza?...No...Ten percent off?...No thanks, just want "X" game....Sure?...Yes......What about a Gold Card or another controller? ....*sigh* No, I'm alright...Sure?.....>_< JUST THIS GAME OK?" ...*shi**y looks*

Photo art is from COD4, which is a good choice since anything else isn't even a game. It's just virtual marshmallow making and how to put up tents and stuff. >:/

You have a keen eye. We wanted to have an image of "the pit" from mw2 'cause it would've been more in line with the story, but we couldn't find a good one.

Edit: @3Gen below
haha, you know what I mean though. The training mode "the pit".

3GenGames2183d ago (Edited 2183d ago )

COD is the pits anymore....sucks you couldn't get a good one. :P

Edit above: Yeah dude I edited like 4 times in a row, new one now. ;) :P
