Five Common Forms of Headset Abuse

G&P Writes:

Headset abuse is no laughing matter. It would be impossible for me to count how many times I've attempted to play with friends online only to have the session spoiled by someone who disregards the sanity of his fellow participants.

The worst is nubblets to leave their mic on all game, so I have to listen to their breathing, shouting to somebody downstairs, phones ringing. AGH! And when I hear every gunshot/radio command played back after 1s! GRRR

I can understand if someone has there TV too loud -- we all love surround sound. But if you're playing online with other people common sense should be applied, and you should turn the volume down.

nirwanda3955d ago

that have there tv to loud so everyone get's echo'y feedback I had onc guy once that was so pi$$ed he made barney(simpsons) sound stone cold sober and a guy who thought it was funny to mic up his baby funny at first with all the random baby noises until it started crying

NewC3955d ago

Ahh, the echo. Another awful case.

NewC3955d ago
