Got off work, got the game up and running...all I have to say is wow.
This is the game I needed...CoD4 is a great game...but I've played it sooo much (mostly MP) that I needed something fresh...this my friends is it. The graphics are great, the game runs silky smooth, the map editor kicks ass, the sounds are awesome, so far I'm very content with the purchase! As lame as it is, I was the first person in my city earlier today to purchase a copy of the game...thanks to a buddy who's a manager at BB...didn't do me any good considering I had a full days' worth of work to do...but none-the-less I didn't have to deal with fighting traffic to get there after work! Woot!
Plus, just tossing this out there...the 180.24's (or 42's...whatever the newest ones are)...gave me no image in the game and a windowed game...I went back to 178.24's and it's just speeding right along...I will eventually get a bench up, but for now it's time to play.
