8 things I hate about Online Gamers

Over the last few years I have played a fairly substantial amount of Call of Duty online; mainly in the Modern Warfare series but also, more recently, Call of Duty:
Black Ops. I have come to find that not only do I love the series but I also hate it…
It is not so much the game that drives me mad, but the players. Some of the things I have come across would have had me quit Call of Duty altogether if I weren’t so damn addicted. Sadly,
I keep going back for more no matter how much I want to boycott the entire franchise for irritating me so much.
Instead of leaving the game I simultaneously love and hate so much I decided the best way to vent would be to put my thoughts down on paper (so to speak) and give everyone a list of the top 8 biggest irritations for both Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops (Online of course).
Some of my points apply to both games and other apply to just one of them.

Singularity: Raven Software releases new details and video
New multiplatform game news finally released
©2009 Grant Smythe:
It was in July 08 at E3 that Raven Software announced their new IP called Singularity, alongside a very small glimpse of the games visuals. Not to be confused with their confirmed Wolfenstien IP, as they are still busy working away on that title for our hot little hands to play, when it arrives. A new IP is always welcomed by gamers.
Designed around a Russian facility the game plays out around a scientist’s warnings of trouble during a cold war period. It has to do with a fracture in time. The debut trailer shows a well detailed industrial seaside location, slipping between various time periods, giving a very errie and unsettling effect.
The scene changes from moment to moment. From clean pristine bridges and city scape, to ruined and desolate in the exact same location.
Well Raven have released new footage of the game under the headings: Lighting, Tech, Storyboard and Cut Scenes.
Full details and 4 new videos here . . . .
