The Gamer Challenge – F34R_SW4RL3Y vs S1lv3rT0rch

55 second read


There is a new digital magazine on the block and one of the ideas that they are bringing to the table is to setup 1-v-1 games in what they are calling The Gamer Challenge.

The idea’s pretty cool and anything that improves the local gaming community is always a winning idea in my book.

This week we get to the annoyingly named F34R_SW4RL3Y up against the equally annoyingly named S1lv3rT0rch in a game of Modern Warfare 2.

However to add a bit of excitement the rule is that you start with the sniper and then after a kill you can upgrade to the Mini Uzi then after the next kill you get the FAL and so on… once you die you are back down to the sniper.

If you’re wondering Swarley won and if you think you can take him.. or others then head on over to The Gamer SA and follow the instructions.

    Now all we need is a Xbox 360 player against a PS3 player, to prove once and for all the leetest MW2 player is on Xbox360!!! And the best console! 😉

    Im sure we can set up a xbox vs ps3 battle?
    I know one of the PS3’s top guys Jakez plays on xbox as well. I think he is Trixter on Xbox.

    In all fairness, They would have to play a best out of 3 series of matches on both consoles. For instance: first match on xbox 360, second match on PS3, with the 3rd and final match decided by fate (Bring on the hat/drum and marked coloured balls).

    There is a stigma that those with numbers in their nicks have the intelligence levels of newts or at least under 13 years of age. I don’t ascribe to this view, but it is very pervasive amongst the elite gentleman’s gaming fraternity.

    *strokes manly moustache*

    They generally frown upon l33t-inspired nicks, pip pip stiff upper lip!

    I agree, I think this is a very good idea, and hopefully TheGamer and co will release more videos and showcase more up and coming South African gamers. 😀

    i suck equally with mw2 on both an xbox and a ps3. so it stands to reason if you are good at mw2, the console choice shouldn’t make a big difference.

    anyway, pc gamers are the true kings of shooters.

    Actually the subtle differences in controllers make a huge difference (even if you’ve been exposed to different gaming controllers). In addition, even though the maps may seem virtually identical between the PS3 and xbox 360 version of MW2 there are tiny differences, that will throw off your game if you’ve only been playing on one console.

    By having them play on both consoles, it evens out the playing field, and would make for a much fairer spectacle.

    Also it adds bragging rights.

    Achievement Unlocked: I owned you on your console of preference.

    Enjoyed playing this 🙂

    Honestly didnt know about the name thing…
    And are the maps seriously slightly different on the respective consoles? i would have thought it would be the same?

    Anyone here want to sponsor me a Xbox :p jks jks but im seriously looking at getting one, ive been told that the Xbox is better for FPS games….

    Shot Bobby. I thought it might be the mixing of letters and numbers

    The l33t-speak names are still common in the PC gaming community, however it has all but disappeared with console gamers.

    Takes me back to the times when LAN’s were the only option and online wasn’t good enough yet, and there were strange folk walking around with things like PH43R_M3_n00b5 printed on something or other.
