I've been on these forums for a few months now, I didn't introduce myself before though.
I'll start by saying who I am, how I got my first xbox/got into Cod, & how new I am to CoD.
Somethings may drag on, but it's your choice to stop reading.
My name is Robyn. I'm 19 and from Las Vegas, NV, USA.
I got my first Xbox on Black Friday 2011. (Yeah, I have the MW3 Xbox too)
My boyfriend came to visit me from Australia and he'd never experienced Black friday before so we spent thanksgiving evening and into the morning of black friday standing in lines and racing to get good deals. Eventually we told ourselves 'just one more' and opted for Kmart...anything at Kmart. Waited 6 hours in the cold, deciding what to get when my boyfriend suggested an Xbox, I was excited!
I'd always been a hardcore Apple fangirl, but since Apple started to f*ck me over, my loyalty waned. I'd always wanted an Xbox since I heard my favourite childhood game 'Banjo Kazooie'would be playable on that system. Getting an Xbox would be a perfect way to stick it to Apple, well at least that's how I felt.
Let me tell you, Kmart black friday lines are the most unorganized pieces of shit I've ever experienced. Disney's California Adventure's 'World of Color' has more organized lines than that!! (If you haven't been, the employees put you and hundreds of other people behind a rope, and expect you to WALK to viewing areas. 115% chance people RUN.
Moving on with the story...Kmart was running out of Xbox's and the cashiers were ignoring the people who formed a line FIRST, we thought we'd be fucked out of 6 hours and an xbox, but people in another line badgered the cashier to acknowledge us and we got our Xbox!
A couple of days later, I get a text from Superpawn about a free game token.
When I get there I scope out the selection and see two interesting titles "Dead rising" (HATE IT!) and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Last I'd been to Australia, my boyfriend would play (in my words back then) "some stupid shooter game" (Which happened to be Battlefield, and Call of Duty) so I was familiar with the 'Call of Duty' name, as well as have regularly played the COD: WAW: Zombies app on my iPhone (that I one day found- when I was looking for Zombie games on my iPhone. But that's a whole different story in and of itself.)
That moment I redeemed my free game token changed my life.
7 months later, CoD has dramatically changed who I am. -
7 (Well, 8) months ago, I would have NEVER bought a Microsoft product.
7 months ago, I used to think nothing of guns, today, I'm saving up to buy my very first gun- a SCAR-L.
7 months ago, I didn't think anything of wars or how people fight for our country overseas.
I do now, and I'm fascinated with the Military. My uncle recently took my fascination with the Military seriously and passed down his BDUs (Battle Dress Uniforms) to me from his days as a Specialist in the army.
7 months ago, I never thought I'd ever feel unbearable weight brought down on me by being the leader of something...
I am leader of a clan- The V0dka clan- https://elite.callofduty.com/connect/clan/view/1309838
A clan that was formed because of my love for Nikolai, the Zombie slaying, Vodka obsessed Russian
I've never felt so proud of being the leader of anything, and because of the clan, and the CoD franchise, I've made so many great friends.
Well, that's that I guess. I'm VitreousOcean on Xbox if you're ever up for some Zombies (MW3 Infected too!), Spec ops or Multiplayer, maybe even a chat, hit me up.
