    you honestly like the story. All the leaked stuff on it and the ending video of it on youtube gave a bad taste in my mouth for the MW3 story. I thought it looked worse then MW2. Things bounced around to much, and the ending video i saw looked horrible

    Where I work, I run my department. That said, all I have to do, is cut everybody at 11:59pm and buy the PC version. Now, since Karma is a bitch. Steam is probably going to be gay and won't let me play it till 3 AM or I get the CD, and I will have to install only by Steam (not include download files)

    edit: yea bitches :)

    What are you trying to claim? People purchase and pirate at the same time?

    Just got done playing ladies!

    Here is the pick. Youtube video up tomorrow :)

    !!!

    So far the SP is amazing. VERY action packed.

    The multiplayer is flawless! 91 solid FPS everything maxed out. I am at LVL 6 now. The game is fun and balanced. The only glitch I noticed, is the Care Package. When you have UAV online, you cannot throw down your care package. Or, you have to wait in order to throw it. (Not like MW2 or BlackOPs)

    Overall, game gets 10/10 .

    Goods
    - Solid FPS all around and smooth mouse feelings
    - NO BUGS! Runs on my 5850 Crossfire flawlessly
    - Graphics is a mixture of MW2 and Black Ops, with new added features (lighting, water affects, shadows)

    Bads

    - Multiplayer is too reminance of MW2 with a few Tweaks

    Activision is basically selling mods for $60 a pop. They change very little each game and sink exponentially more money into marketing. I refuse to support this practice.

    Congrats for spending 60$ on the same game you can get for 10$ :(

    By your SS and the video above me, It shows that it is COD4 with extra weapons and maps.

    MW2 and MW3 are basically just mods. They rework the mechanics a bit, pretty up the interface, copy the same map design\layout a dozen times, and BAM, new game for $60. Hell, half the time the maps you get from DLC are just cut out of the SP and have some walls thrown in to keep you from dropping off the edge, or are just remade CoD1\2\4\MW2 maps that they reskinned.

    New Engine, New Levels, Different Aesthetics, Different Class Designs, More Weapons, Different Gameplay, Extra Single Player, 7 years in between release--should I go on?

    I just hate that people pay that much and the company that made it are like "HAHA poor fools!"

    I just finished watching that full video then a video of COD4 multiplayer, The font, HUD, Weapon models and animations are almost EXACT.

    If they changed every little thing people would bitch that it wasn't even the same game... I'm not a fanboy for either side cause I like both games... But I will wait till BF3 is $10 before I get it... That is if I can use steam for it... And you think COD guys are treated bad lols... at least we don't HAVE to deal with orgin :roll::roll::roll::roll: or have a web browser open to play a fking game

    If it was $30 cheaper i'd probably get it. But every 12 months for $60 is a ripoff especially since the game feels the same, and they have been running with the same engine for years now, granted people will still buy it because they know they can ride the brand for a long as possible.

    Battlelog is nothing short of awesome. People shunned the idea of having it when it was announced but now I have seen almost 3/4 of those people to change their minds! The ease of just alt+tab to check email, facebook, your stats, or change servers is so easy with battlelog. It also creates a facebook style networking site were you can share unlocks and stats almost (hopefully soon) instantly.

    With battlelog, it takes roughly 30-50 seconds to find and join a server and be playing.

    yup but the point is that it's one more moving part in a machine that can fuck up and cause the whole thing not to work... plus I never updated my FB in a war and am pretty sure you didn't either ;)

    Plus I see how you skirted around the Origin issue
