March 8th - 14th

Before we get into the Game of the Week I want to take a moment and welcome Coldforged to the GWJ family. We may be dysfunctional and crazy uncle Pyro might want you to sit on his lap a little too long but somehow we make it all work. This week's Game du Jour is none other than the much delayed Rainbow Six 3: Athena Sword expansion. After months of no Thursday night Raven Shield I've been chomping at the bit waiting for this one to hit the shelves. It ships today for $29.99.

I wonder if it has real swords?

I know UT2K4 and Battle Field: Nam' are coming soon but leave a little room in your budget for this one, it should be a good time!

Sitting on his lap wouldn't be so bad, if he didn't continually whisper about "trains going into tunnels" while you're sitting there.

Thanks for the welcome, though ;).

Now CF needs a tag...

Frozen Tundra?

Cold Filtered?

Cold Shoulder?

Vanilla Ice?

Ice Cube?

Ice-T?

Never watered down

Merely musing, don't stick that in there.

I hate to admit it, but I'm not planning to get Athena Sword. There are just too many better FPS experiences right around the corner. Sorry, Ubi, but too little too late.

What about Thursday Night Raven Shield? What about all the special times we had!

MGS:TS got some strange reviews..

frame rate issues... I dont get it.

What about all the special times we had!

I was faking it.

I'd like to pick up Athena Sword, but I have UT2004 DVD preordered and that was my gaming budget. Maybe when I get my tax return in a week or two.

I wondered about that. I saw CFs name bolded in the active user list last night like he was a mod or something. I thought about posting a thread, but didn't. Mystery solved!

"It's Baseba....ZZZzZZZzzzzZZzzz.."

That's messed up. Release the hounds.

Damn, next week can't come soon enough. I can't wait to kill my first Rat Boy, er rat in BFV

Hanoi Flux is busting out the trash talk!

I wanted to start early, die round eye!

NVA, Viet Cong, y'all light up the same way with napalm!

Oh man, do we get to pull out the Full Metal Jacket quotes?!

[size=9]I sets 'em up...[/size]

"The ones that run are VC..."

"How can you kill women and children?" (Yelling over chopper noise)

"You just don't lead em as much"

Far too evil quote .

I hope Athena Sword is good. I still play Raven Shield a couple times a week, it is so sweet.
