  • There was a time when I actually looked forward to playing online. Whether it was FPS, or flight sims, frankly any multiplayer game, I could look forward to a competitive atmosphere with reasonably well-behaved players — even in random pub games. It was frankly unusual to have an exceptionally bad experience interacting with fellow PC gamers. I’m not saying that […]

  • Back in the late 70’s I remember watching a leather-jacketed Fonzie on a pair of water skis jumping a shark on the sitcom Happy Days (yes, I’m old…I know). While I didn’t realize it at the time, Happy Days’ writers had hit a creative wall and they came up with this Shark-jumping episode to try to put some zip into […]

  • If you are like me, it’s been so long since you have played CoD you struggle to remember what those three letters even stand for; however, somewhere in your gamer memory, the mere mention of Infinity Ward’s (IW) Community Manager/Creative Strategist, Rob “Fourzerotwo”  Bowling triggers waves of emotional memories — some good, some bad. One of the more nightmarish recollections […]

  • It was a bittersweet Tweet, not unexpected — to say the least. It went something like this: BM verabschiedet sich – zumindest vorerst! BM says “Goodbye”! I quickly clicked over to the BlackMonkeys.de site and looked for the inevitable end-times post. The impenetrable German prose tripped me up. I’d forgotten…I don’t speak German, so I Skyped Xiao and asked him […]

  • Normally, I have to pay people to pat me on the back (thanks Svetlana, that massage was awesome!), but today that all changed. DICE’s community manager, Zh1nt0 made a surprise visit over to the BASH Boards and he gave us a nice little pre-Christmas present: Linkage Members of the FPS community were honored by being mentioned in the credits to […]

  • In my opinion, The Galactic Warfare Mod by the BlackMonkeys.de was one of the best CoD4 mods the CoD community ever created. Given that it is Thanksgiving, we here at BASHandSlash.com cannot think of a better way to thank the guys and gals at the BlackMonkeys who brought us this mod than to give them the recognition they deserve. Therefore, […]

I didn’t go to my local video store and fork over my hard earned cash. I didn’t download a day-one patch. I didn’t stare at my monitor […]
