Call Of Duty Kid: no crying or wall punching over MW3
‘MW2 SUCKS!’ Youtube video star confirms MW3 doesn’t cause fits, psychotic episodes, freak-outs or excessive milk spillage.
Jono1170 is the star of this legendary video, which proves that actually there is some use crying over spilt milk – it can entertain hundreds of thousands of YouTube viewers…
Here at X360 we wondered what kind of reaction Jono might have had to Modern Warfare 3, and we were delighted to discover his YouTube channel was still active. We got in touch via his Facebook Fan Club and conducted this exclusive, not to mention surprisingly calm, interview.
Did you really play Modern Warfare 2 for seventeen hours straight?
I played Modern Warfare 2 for six hours. The seventeen hours was a miscalculation.
Have any other games got you as frustrated as you were in that video?
Guitar Hero kind of frustrated me because I couldn’t do Hard levels or Expert. I only can do Medium, even though I’ve been playing it for a long time. I played Guitar Hero at my holiday on the arcade and two 13-year old girls beat me.
We see you made a video along the same lines about Modern Warfare 3…
I got loads of requests off people telling me to make another Ragefare video, so I did. And people noticed that it was kind of fake.
Yeah, you don’t seem to be genuinely upset in the new one…
I’m not that kid no more that I used to be. I’ve moved on. I’ve got a life now.
What do you think of Modern Warfare 3?
It’s kind of the same as Modern Warfare 2. It’s still got the same set-up and weapons and the same people, really, that really piss me off. It’s just the people on there. It’s mostly people that live in their mother’s basement that play Call Of Duty. First day, I went on the internet – people have already Prestiged and there’s campers in the same place like they’re building a tent or something.
The maps are too small and there’s an easy chance of campers and snipers.
That’s just multiplayer. What about the other modes?
There’s no need for the campaign because most people don’t really go on the campaign, really. And the only entertainment there is, is the multiplayer or the survival… survivor, erm… thing.
What would you rather Modern Warfare 3 was like?
You get killed too easy – you don’t see it coming. You just stand there, and they shoot you. How did he get me? He hit my leg? How did I die? I didn’t bleed to death… ‘cause he hit me in my foot! How’s that even possible?
And the maps should be bigger and more easier and if people are staying in the same spot for 30 seconds they should show where they are because people won’t be able to camp then.
But the Killcam shows you where they are, and you get a dot on the radar when they fire their gun…
But what if they’re using a silencer?
You didn’t have similar problems in, say, Black Ops?
No, not at all. There are some campers but still, it gave me entertainment that I liked.
I just wish Call Of Duty would be like Black Ops again. I loved it, man. I loved the zombies, I loved the multiplayer. I just want it to be the same as Call Of Duty 4, World At War and Black Ops. They’re the only games I like of Call Of Duty, really.
I’m just waiting for the next Call Of Duty and hopefully that will be exactly the same as Call Of Duty 4, World At War and Black Ops. Not quite exactly. Different maps, less grenade launchers, less snipers, less campers and new weapons that are better, more technolo-gic… or summat.
