Shortly before the release of Call of Duty: black Ops over a year ago, I made a bold declaration that I would ‘Platinum’ Modern Warfare 2. That is, complete 100% of all achievements.

Yep, you heard it here first. For those of you that are of the Xbox persuasion, I guess it means that I’m after 100% of achievements. But it’s not going to be easy. My biggest hurdles are the special ops missions, which present an interesting bunch of scenarios: some are almost too easy (hello Wardriving, Armour Piercing) whilst others verge on the ridiculously tough (big shout out to Snatch & Grab and High Explosive).
You may be thinking Modern Warfare 2 is yesterday’s news- been there, done that, next. Well, up to a point. You see, as much as I hate to say it, I’ll just spit it out anyway- all the games that have come out this year haven’t really interested me. Any games that I might go for, will only be bought once they’ve come down in price. One of the few games coming up this year that I will most certainly buy at full price, will be Call of Duty: Black Ops.
But until that time, Modern Warfare 2 has sustained me throughout most of this year, with the single player campaign completed on veteran, and the online multiplayer to dip in and out of. And of course, special ops! So that’s what I’ve been up to with my gaming.
