Happy Fathers Day from avgjoegeek.net!

fathers-day-thumbHi all, I hope that you all had a great weekend! As you know yesterday was Fathers Day.  This one day a year where fathers are recognized and given homemade ashtrays or coffee mugs and cards.  But since my lil’ guy is only 2 – I will have to look forward to them at a later date! So Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there!

I had an awesome weekend though!  My wife graduated from college, we had a nice quiet weekend, I was able to hang out with my lil’ guy, and I even got in a little Call of Duty. But I had a great surprise from my wife this weekend too! You will need to read on to find out what it is though!

Call of Duty MW3 Forums post Online Code of Conduct (How to Get Banned)

ban-hammerThe Call of Duty MW3 Forums posted the Online Code of Conduct. Read it below or go directly to the link here. I just copied it verbatim. It appears that Activision/Infinity Ward is starting to get serious about people cheating in the game.  I play on PS3 and I have yet to come across a booster or hacked lobby where someone was glitching. My friends on XBox state it is more prevalent on there – but then more people play on XBox than PS3.

I’m still jaded by the hacked lobbies in Modern Warfare 2. So we will have to wait and see.

Call of Duty MW:3 Are you Ready?

As MW:3 starts to hit the shelves I decided to post my (yes biased) opinions, thoughts, and gripes about what looks to be the most anticipated and highly debated Call of Duty to day. So have fun, sit back, and start reading.

Campaign / Single Player

With the official launch trailer we get to see that the shit has hit the fan. They are going to hunt down Makarov all around the world blah blah blah. As  you can tell I’m not huge into the story arch of COD. I enjoyed the Campaign in Modern Warfare: 2 – and they did a fantastic job with it. But I end up trying to tear through it as quickly as possible and then I make the game stay defaulted to multi-player.  The last Campaign I really enjoyed was in World at War, it had a certain gritty feeling and I liked the story line. (Biased opinion remember?) Of course with all that being said it looks like the folks over at Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer have pulled out all the stops and this will probably be the craziest Campaign mode yet.
