Rainbow Six Vegas Is My Type Of Shooter


I started playing RSV2 last night. I forgot just how much I loved the first Rainbow Six Vegas game. A lot of shooters are constantly intense with tons of run and gun moments. RSV is more of a thinking man's shooter. You have to strategize. I also love the fact that I can order my team to do whatever I tell them to do. They may actually be the best AI teammates you could ask for in a shooter. RSV games are definitely my pace as well. I'm pretty much average at FPS games. It just seems like I'm much better at this particular shooter. I'm not a stud or anything, but I seem to be better with this shooter. I'm nailing way more head shots in this game than I do with others.

My above average skills will no doubt change as soon as I play online or online co-op with real living breathing people. This happens to me all the time. I don't deal well with pressure, I guess. There have been a few times where I'll play Halo 3 online and be kicking ass. Then when my friend gets on and wants to play I'll go from doing well to straight up sucking ass. It's gotta be a mental thing for me or something. I need to not think about playing against real people online and just trick myself into somehow believing that I'm playing against AI when I'm playing with friends. I don't know if anyone else has ever had this problem, but for some reason I do.

R6V2 is awesome. It does have its share of bugs which sucks since the first game was so polished. But this game is fun to play. I especially love Terrorist Hunt. You can't beat that for a coop good time with your buddies.

This is a fun game. Last night was not so fun, but I was having an off night. It seems like this one may be a tad bit harder. Not that I don't like a challenge.

Games I'm Playing:

Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)







About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
