Wh00t! New DLC for Call of Duty!

Remember that list of things that make me disproportionately happy with life? You can add new DLC to that list! Yay!

Actually, yesterday was a great gaming day for me all the way around. First off, I cut out of work an hour early (considering it was my day off and I worked anyway, is it really still considered leaving an hour early or is it leaving 7 hours late?) and did some good, old fashioned achievement whoring to boost my pathetically small gamer score. Now, I've gone from a gamer score of 600 and change to 1100 and change... Thank you "Scene it: Lights, Camera, Action!" for handing an avid movie buff some easy points... But whatever, achievements are achievements, and I'll take what I can get.

Secondly, "Call of Duty: World at War" FINALLY released some new maps beyond that freebie Makin Day map.,, Including Verr├╝ckt for the Zombie Nazis. Yes, I freely admit to being one of those dorks who co-ops Zombie Nazis for hours on end, which is really silly when you think about it, because if I want to shoot zombies in a co-op format I should just play "Left 4 Dead," but I can't help it. It's a guilty pleasure and I'm addicted. Considering I am the most awful person alive on multi player death matches, Zombie Nazis is all I have to save face.

As always, I knew the maps were coming out, but did I prepare? Of course not. I had 1600 points just waiting to be redeemed, but I didn't redeem them ahead of time... I had to wait until everybody and their brother was trying to buy points, so I got error message after error message. So aggravating. You'd think I'd be better prepared, but I never am.

The only thing that would make life better is if I didn't have to be at work by 7am and I could stay up all night, getting my butt kicked on CoD: WaW.

Now what I want to know... How much longer do I have to wait for "Left 4 Dead" DLC? By default, I know it *has* to come out before April 21st, when the new version of the game is released, but I hope they release it a bit earlier than that. I'm just dying to play the new Lighthouse map on verses (even though I hate verses because I'm awful at it) and their version of horde mode a la "Gears of War 2" looks completely addicting. And, bonus bonus, it'll be free, so I don't have to worry about redeeming codes and points. Freaking cool.

Come on Valve! You're killing me! I can't wait anymore!

Haha, those are both awesome games. I'm not good at first person shooters yet, but K had me play L4D with him once. Usually he led the group around and was constantly rescuing me, but one time he died and I was literally shaking in my seat, trying to reach his spawn point without setting off the neighborhood witch. What an intensely fun game!

OMG, tell me about it.

Wait until you get into achievement whoring like me. Then you find yourself doing insanely stupid things that nobody in their right mind would ever do, just for those stupid little points and bragging rights.

Though I have to say, L4D is the game that does seem to bring about the most embarrassing deaths. Deaths where, after it happens, you just shake your head over the fact that you had 3 other people right there to witness it. :)
