SA local makes me want to play COD

I met Zane Whitfield at the COD: Ghosts launch late last year. I remember it because he is huge. No, I know I’m short and whatnot, but this guy is tall. Anyway, he told me that he likes video editing and was looking to to get involved in the local gaming scene. As you might imagine, I smiled and told him I’d like to see his stuff, fearing that it would be awful and I’d have to find a polite way to tell him to go away. Instead, he has shown off some serious talent – definitely don’t want him to go away.

For those who don’t watch videos, he put together an awesome gameplay trailer. It features all gameplay from the COD: Ghosts launch. It’s very well edited and set to some “vibey” tunes – I’m loving the professionalism of it. Seeing as I’m slowly getting over my FPS issues, this makes me want to give COD a shot – it is the natural progression from L4D2, right?

Speaking of which – big thanks to some of the community that joined me last Friday for some L4D2. Was loads of fun, even though I was an absolute n00b. Maybe one day I’ll be able to play for an hour without getting nauseous. Until that time, I’ll keep trying and practicing. Or just watching this cool trailer and fantasizing about being able to shoot people one day.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time


  • Rags

    Great vid, just a bit short and perhaps too synched.

    Anyway here is my favourite local vid. Its a bit old(240p) but frags are epic.
    I’ll convert Zoe to Quake still ;)

    • Kensei Seraph

      I remember that using a jump pad was just asking for a rocket to the face but dam there are some truly amazing shots there.

    • Hammersteyn

      Jeez, COD seems like the players stands still compared to this.

      • Rags

        That’s because they are :P

        • Hammersteyn

          I would love to see a COD player attempt a rocket jump or strafe jumping.

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Insta-self-gib

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      This video makes me feel super old

      • Hammersteyn

        Kids be like, where’s the quickscope for this game?

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          They would rage quit after 1min

          • Skyblue

            Cool thing is that Quakelive has a ragequit option built in.

          • Skyblue

            Ragequit or call HAX HAX HAX !!!!!

    • Skyblue

      Keep preaching it brother.

  • Robert Hart

    Not a fan of the way you only see the end of each kill, but cool vid.

    • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

      I actually like that. Compared to CS where they only show you the guy that killed you and not how he killed you, so you never really learn.

      • Admiral Chief in Vegas

        Epic nickname is epic!

        • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

          Finally someone that gets it!

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            :)

  • Matthew Holliday

    its a pretty good edit, even at international level
    still think Toribash doesnt get the recognition it deserves, the editing scene is pretty damn classy now.

    • Kensei Seraph

      That’s impressive.

      • Matthew Holliday

        The game in general is really impressive, massive learning curve to play.
        each of the elements of the game have really developed over the years, the art, single palyer and multiplayer are all top knotch.
        its just a pity that the majority of the palyers are all 12 year olds who googled “best ragdoll games”

        • Kensei Seraph Moe Ninja

          Wow… Just wow.

          I tried playing back in 2007 but didn’t really put in much effort.

          • Matthew Holliday

            yeah, I started playing in 2006, got pretty into it and now the game wont let me leave =/
            My clan has been 2nd place at every clan champs since 2007 and we won in 2011.
            I havent been involved in the competetive scene in years, moved over to the texture scene and helped develope that area of the game.

  • Kromas

    Troll post for the day. Imagine what he could do with a proper game. :P

    • HvR

      Also thought the video would have been better with a remix version of Who let the dogs out

  • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

    That was awesome, really well done.

  • Kensei Seraph

    The video is amazing but I just couldn’t bring myself to like the music.

    • Hammersteyn

      Music? What music?

      • Kensei Seraph

        That strange noise that plays with the video.
        Apparently some people refer to that as “music”.

        • Hammersteyn

          I thought it was COD sound effects XD

  • Hammersteyn

    The natural progression from L4D2 is not COD. That would be stagnation.

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      NO, degeneration

      • Hammersteyn

        Right, that.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      If she wants to play a zombie the answer is another L4D2 mode, not COD. :/

      • Hammersteyn

        Gonna start jamming L4D2 later tonight

        • GalacticLordCaptainAwesomeness

          There will be peeps online should you require assistance..

          • Hammersteyn

            According to @Admiral_Chief:disqus all I need is a pan?

          • GalacticLordCaptainAwesomeness

            If you like spending time in the kitchen ;-)

          • Hammersteyn

            Hahahaha

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Are you joining us again?

          • GalacticLordCaptainAwesomeness

            Tonight? what time?

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            8ish?

          • GalacticLordCaptainAwesomeness

            Purrrfect

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Sweet. I was kinda surprised by how much fun I’ve had with it. We must be n00bs together some time.

          • Hammersteyn

            Will do ;)

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “I was an absolute n00b”… says the one with 12% headshots – double everyone else. I don’t belieeeeeevvvvvveeeeeee yooooouuuuuuuuuuu!

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      For some strange reason when we jammed on Sat. night, I had 46% accuracy and 42% headshots. That was very weird

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        heh – did you dose yourself with ADD drugs beforehand? Those are some impressive stats!

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          I dunno man, I was like O_O at the end

      • GalacticLordCaptainAwesomeness

        You kicked ass Sat dude.. Only Noob in team was I

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          Nah man, we were awesome 4 man squad!

      • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

        #shamelessbragging ;)

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          Not bragging if truth :P

          But it surprised me as well

      • Matthew Holliday

        You guys are actually playing this?

        Bored of Dota lately, been looking to play something else, guess I should let Ghosts update and give it a shot with the new graphics card.

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          Actually we are talking about L4D2…

          • Matthew Holliday

            Ah, now I feel silly.

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Don’t be, rather join us!

            :)

  • Admiral Chief in Vegas

    Well Zoe, you didn’t do too bad that night

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I felt kinda bad when she went down right by the chopper, there was just too many zombies to get to her & revive without dying myself :(. I didn’t even see what killed Grant – one second he was alive, the next dead.

      • Admiral Chief in Vegas

        I went to the chopper for a higher view, but once I got in, I couldn’t get out :(

  • Admiral Chief in Vegas

    Speaking of L4D2, where is PanGirl?

  • Rock789

    “fantasizing about being able to shoot people one day”… Well, you heard it here folks – conclusive proof that gaming turns peeps into violent killers! ;) :)

    On a more serious note, wish I had L4D2 (and a gaming rig) so I could join in the zombie killing fun… Sounds like you peeps had a blast… Literally! Ok, I’m ashamed of that one too… **slinks away**

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      Yeah man, great fun was had, I think the co-op builds community bonds!
