How I Spent My Summer Vacation

With my work and travel schedule, I haven't had much time to game lately. I've hardly been on Xbox Live at all. But that's where the new laptop comes in handy. I love this thing. In fact, I decided to get the full version of FRAPS so I could record HD gameplay video. I set one of the side buttons on my mouse to turn the recording on and off. That way, I don't have to reach for the Record button, and it's not running all the time, filling up my hard drive with lots of ugly deaths and the occasional kill. When I think something cool is about to happen, I turn it on, capture it, then turn it off. In spite of a terrible kill-death ratio, I'd started racking up some decent knife kill footage. Then I thought, 'Why not use Windows Live Movie Maker to create a little compilation video, set to some death metal?'

This one is all knife, all the time:

I wish the X360 version had a video editing suite in-game like Black Ops. I've played that version a lot more, and am a lot better at it on that side. Still though, the game is amazingly fun either way. Can't wait until 10/25. Might even have to buy both versions.
