On the Frontlines

I had a chance recently to play Frontlines: Fuel of War with a few of my favor bloggers, Scott over at Pumping Irony and Aaron over at Anyway Games. Let me say that Scott's version of my gaming prowess is very much exaggerated. Yes, I did kill him with a tank and yes, it was very funny sneaking up on him, but until we all got on the same team I think the score on kills was more like Scott 20, Oakstout 1.

I had picked the game up a few months back on the hopes that we would all get a chance to play online together. I was concerned that since the game was over a year old that their wouldn't be a lot of players online, which is the case with a lot of online console games when they are past their prime, but I was pleasantly surprised that the community is very large and their were lots of great servers to chose from.

Normally, if I play a FPS, it's on the computer because I suck playing them on a console, but I really wanted to give this one a shot and it was a lot of fun. I'm hoping we can get a few more players so we can field an entire team of bloggers and friends.

This is one fun game I would recommend to any Xbox 360 owner.


  1. Nah you were doing just fine. And I'm always on the lower end of the scoreboard; middle at best.

    Hope to get in and do some more soon, maybe next week when I'm on vacation?

  2. Tuesday and Wednesday are out, but the rest of the week looks good. Just let me know when we can get the crew back together lol.

  3. Aaron's been on quite a bit playing Batman. Me too, though my attention span drags me to other games too. He and I did a couple skirmishes in EndWar the other day then we spent a few hours blowing up Los Muertos gangs in Crackdown.
