Modern Warfare 2: A Conversation
10:37:04 AM Cliff: So you diggin the MW2 action?
11:30:47 AM weaselbringer: it’s pretty fricking rad
11:30:58 AM weaselbringer: doubt I’ll play it multiplayer
11:31:09 AM weaselbringer: but i’ll probably do the SP campaign twice
11:47:22 AM Cliff: Yeah, I’m hooked. The whole attack on america thing is pretty wild. Not that I’m proud that one of the fights in america revolves around a fast food chain mall.
11:47:35 AM weaselbringer: lol
11:47:37 AM weaselbringer: yeah
11:47:42 AM weaselbringer: defend the burger town is pretty silly
11:47:49 AM weaselbringer: but I’m glad there’s a taco bell or whatever,
11:48:23 AM Cliff: Well its funny, you think about all the other game they’ve done and you fight for farms and churches and historic areas. Then they do one game in america and your defending the burger barn and taco hut.
11:48:46 AM Cliff: “God damnit general, save the burger barn and get me a double quarter pounder while your there!”
11:48:48 AM weaselbringer: well I’m assuming we’re defending “freedom” and not the burger hut
11:49:02 AM Cliff: Freedom Fries
11:49:22 AM weaselbringer: we’re defending our right to have people stupid enough to call french fries… that
11:49:42 AM Cliff: God bless america
11:56:21 AM weaselbringer: I believe the burger hut was bombed anyway
11:56:44 AM weaselbringer: diner also thrashed, pisstown USA will have to bebuilt
11:57:05 AM weaselbringer: Hundreds of dollars in government funding will be required before it can regain it’s former beauty
11:57:11 AM weaselbringer: HUNDREDS
11:57:33 AM Cliff: Wheres a crying eagle when you need one.
11:58:00 AM weaselbringer: or a cybernetic bald eagle riding a plymouth into uncle sams vampire mouth
11:58:04 AM weaselbringer: no wait that’s just a tattoo I wanted
11:58:56 AM Cliff: I can see it, I dig it… no wait let me get the acid then everything will make sense
12:02:36 PM weaselbringer: then it looks like a pile of lumber, acid test pre-completed buddy
12:02:47 PM weaselbringer: what about that controversial airport scene?
12:02:58 PM Cliff: Did you play that yet?
12:03:02 PM Cliff: Its the third mission
12:03:16 PM weaselbringer: Here’s a massive machine gun and for some reason we need you to “PRETEND” by killing and gunning down OODLES of innocents
12:03:38 PM weaselbringer: this is to ‘get in good’ with the terrorist, who is STANDING IN FRONT OF YOU WHILE YOU ARE HOLDING A MACHINE GUN
12:04:18 PM weaselbringer: you could burst all 5 of those jackasses and not a single civilian life lost, or you could HELP them gun down thousands, get shot in the face and start a war…
12:04:19 PM weaselbringer: hmm
12:04:40 PM weaselbringer: maybe America’s policy of ‘kill as many innocents as it takes’ isn’t as well thought out as we thought
12:04:48 PM Cliff: hah
12:05:32 PM Cliff: Well heres my take on it, they wanted you to get in close with him to figure out what was next. Maybe they thought he had a nuke or something big that could kill loads more, who knows, I’m honestly not sure if they even bring it up.
12:05:46 PM Cliff: Anyways, they send you in the get in good with him and play buddy buddy
12:05:48 PM weaselbringer: Not explained at all
12:06:18 PM weaselbringer: and I’m pretty sure he can’t use a nuke with 30 rounds in his back… which is exposed to you, the whole time, that you are… killing innocent people, to gain his favor, which doesn’t work
12:06:33 PM Cliff: What bugs me is all that “If you are compromised we destroy all evidence of your existence” that ALL other CIA movies do… I mean shit its the first thing I thought of.
12:07:03 PM Cliff: My assumption was it was a no other alternative situation
12:07:06 PM weaselbringer: isn’t the point of counter terrorism to avoid gigantic bloodbaths like… I dunno, a massive airport execution?
12:07:14 PM Cliff: Like he had the capabilities and cells that would do it for him if he died
12:07:55 PM weaselbringer: still knowing there was some guy in france with sweaty palms holding the controller for a nuke would go a long way to soothing my concerns, instead it’s “Be his friend, kill thousands… it’s WORTH it”
12:08:31 PM Cliff: *little devil on his shoulder*
This is a good idea, nothing could go wrong.
12:08:55 PM weaselbringer: little angel – Yeah, machine guns, yeah! (in a beavis voice)
12:09:01 PM Cliff: hah
12:09:41 PM weaselbringer: I have to say the game is made worth it by gangsta shooting faceless enemies while snowmobiling at roughly 200 miles per hour
12:09:46 PM Cliff: Maybe one of the writers at activision had a really bad experience at a german airport and was like “Ya know what, fuck these people” and the story goes from there.
12:09:56 PM weaselbringer: You ever been to german airport?
12:09:58 PM Cliff: lol
12:10:00 PM Cliff: no
12:10:01 PM weaselbringer: it’s like that ALL the time
12:10:09 PM weaselbringer: thousands dead daily
12:10:30 PM weaselbringer: I don’t think a plane has ever successfully landed or taken off from a german airport
12:10:36 PM weaselbringer: due to all the shootings
12:10:42 PM Cliff: I’ll have to make note of this
12:10:46 PM Cliff: Avoid Germany
12:11:01 PM weaselbringer: yeah if you’re layover is in hamburg or something like that, wear flak, go in packing and leave on a fucking snowmobile
12:11:21 PM weaselbringer: that will be the only way you’re getting to euro-disney
12:11:58 PM Cliff: Now I have the image of Mickey in the airport gunning down thousands of civilians.
12:12:17 PM weaselbringer: with his creepy laugh, now THAT would be Epic Mickey
12:12:49 PM weaselbringer: Goofy throws a flashbang and says “Garsh” before slitting the throat of yet another airport security guard
12:13:16 PM Cliff: Donald suicide bombs a concession stand
12:15:07 PM weaselbringer: which accomplishes…
12:15:20 PM weaselbringer: No it doesn’t matter
12:15:26 PM weaselbringer: I think it’s awesome
12:15:37 PM weaselbringer: I’m also going to blog this… watch me
12:16:21 PM Cliff: I can’t wait for the FBI to call me.
12:19:39 PM weaselbringer: and crotchmail.com ‘ed
12:20:08 PM Cliff: I’ve always waited for this day… my life is complete
