@farhad2k8 You are a very wrong my friend. You contradict yourself by giving sales numbers than stating that you don't care about sales numbers. You bend your argument the way it needs to be so that YOU think you come out on top in the argument. It became very clear that you are a MW3 fanboy who can't take a single joke an loses his cool in an instant. Furthermore by you blaming BF3 "fanboyism" for this is just outrageous. There are people who don't like either BF3 nor MW3...and there are people who like both. Has it occurred to you that Pikajew might hate FPS in general?? Clearly not. You sir, should stop talking about fanboyism.
If he was obsessed about Shadow of the Colossus he would have been auctioned and she would have got a better return on the value.
I saw this on one of those 24hr news channels and the wife is pretty good looking. During the whole interview the husband was playing MW3. She was really upset that he just disappeared for 3 days after MW3 release and that he pays her no attention anymore cause he's addicted to the Xbox 360. Dude is a loser. Your wife is hot and dude is not. She's been trying to sell him on Craigslist but i'm sure it's just a cover so she can meet a new guy who wants to "get into her" and not video games.
I hate viral advertising.
She's just angry he didn't give her a turn.
"Someone could take this kind of ad seriously." Yeah, and then the person doing the "selling" could *gasp* NOT SELL HER HUSBAND. Who gives a damn if some moron takes the ad seriously? That's their own problem that they're so effing stupid they couldn't understand the joke.
Thats pretty funny, but at the same time if this was a man putting up his wife on craigslist people would be all over his ass! Including the law! The double standard still exists unfortunately. If i was him, i would retaliate by putting up his bitchy wife on craigslist and perhaps say something like... will trade bitchy wife for a nice newer model. Guy was in the middle east at war for Gods sake. Give the poor dude a frikin break! What a bitch!
My father recently got back from Kuwait with his military contract finally ended. First thing my mother does to greet him is divorce him for "not supporting our family". He was supporting the entire country for Christ's sake! Women truly are bitches.
i say this with all intended respect but your moms a bitch...sorry but just as you said the man came home from serving the country and she divorces him for not supporting his family? wow...
I've never gotten along with her so I am in no way offended. And it isn't just me, I have plenty of military buddies whoms significant others left them while they were over seas. I don't mean to seem sexist, but from my experiences, "women" is a perfect example of turncoat.
"That's pretty funny" And then you go on to be super mean spirited towards her. She did it as a joke, she wasn't actually going to trade her husband for skittles or anyone/thing else. Yes, he was in the Middle East, and he deserves our respect. No, that doesn't mean his sense of humor has completely vanished. If you read the original article, he found it funny and didn't take offense at all. Because they're married. They love each other. You are not in their marriage. You don't know how they act together.
And you are in their marriage? You have no idea what they do or how they act together! By the sounds of it, joking or not, anyone that would go as far to take the time to put their husband up on craigslist for sale because of a videogame obviously is trying to tell them something! Im sure it was just a joke, but i guarantee the dude was probably a little hurt by it. Once again, if this was done to a woman no one would be laughing. I could care less myself, because it is kinda funny. Doesnt mean the woman still isnt a bitch for doing it! Ive seen women do far worse things these days to a man. Im simply stating a fact and making an observation from a stand point of view! Lighten up!
wow this guy just came back from serving in Afghanistan RISKING HIS LIFE for people and his wife complains about him playing too much video games? i think he pretty much earned the right to do w.e he wants. he just came back from war the least she should do is have a coke a smile and shut the fuck up...i will say the whole irony to this story is that most people who come home from war want to get away from those experiences and come back to a comfortable life. in this mans case he comes back home to play a war/military shooter lol
Yes, he deserves our respect and appreciation and I think all people serving / veterans are the really amazing. However, he's still a person, and he's still married. And you, pal, aren't part of their marriage. You have no idea how they are together -- and neither do I. But they both found this funny, and she did it as a joke. It's not like she was putting some postage stamps on him and getting ready to ship him to someone for a "pack of blue skittles." She was there with him at the midnight launch of MW3. That sounds SUPER UNSUPPORTIVE AND BITCHY AND COMPLAIN-TASTIC and like she definitely doesn't want to have any part of that part of his life. Oh wait. . . . No, it doesn't. :P She's just a wife who misses her hubby because MW3 is an evil mistress who stole him away, like many men have been stolen - veteran or not. She dealt with it in a funny, snarky way. “I love my wife. She supported me when I got the game. We stayed until midnight to get the game when it first came out,” THE VETERAN, Kyle Baddley, said. “It’s just funny.” -- I think he's just fine without you having to defend him.
Volunteering to do the dirty work of a more polished up dictator than the one being invaded is not what I would consider "honorable service." He chose that life for himself.
people were offering to actually trade lmao
I'm all about some video games, but I'd play my wife over COD any day. I would sell him too.
What level is he? I mean, surely there's a way to judge whether or not he is actually obsessed. I mean, I'm first prestige and I can barely keep my paws off skyrim and I don't even get a whole lot of gaming time.
WOW is all i can say to this flame war and article!!
Not sure if serious...
The guy actually returned from Afghanistan and he plays COD which is exactly the opposite of what he must've faced there.
It's funny cuz it's true.
Does he come with free DLC? :P
Heha, just imagine if he was playing SKYRIM!!! 8)
Ha I saw this on my local Las Vegas news just this morning!
lmao. daily there's some hilarious news related to mw3. yesterday twas a virtual bodyguard n today this. lol
I could understand it if he was playing Skyrim or Dark Souls. But Call of Duty? Jeeze, that's just over the line pitiful.
