    Lulz, the story got 7.5 on Gametrailers...this is BF3s only flaw. This is where COD can take advantage off

    Battlefield games have always had dull and uncreative storylines. To me it's pretty much only a multiplayer game.:)

    It's like Doom 3's multiplayer, ya it's there, but that's not what everyone is buying it for.

    Glad the reviews are high though.:rockout:

    Time to switch drivers!

    Yes it's odd but maybe that's how the engine works. PCgameshardware are a trusted site/magazine.

    Looks like my machines will run it fine maxed if I cut back the resolution to 1680x1050.
    I can live with that. Guess I'll find out soon enough. Day one will be all about tweeking the Graphic's I think:rolleyes:

    i'm sorry but cod hasn't had an original hole-free story in a decade. i don't think it gives them any advantage.

    I took the highlighted what they said to you ,Only standard Edition pre-loads and you do not get a key for LE until later??mmm so why is mine pre-loaded They know they are stolen cds (russian mob do this all the time and never gets reported) See the loopy excuses they give out to customers when all they want is $$$ That`s just me..... As for the 15000(wich is roughly the equal to what a city with 6 major stores get ,warehouse to warehouse then separated to chain stores,just for shits and giggles go to you local retail store and ask how many they get in 15 cases should equal 300 copies.) copies they get sell maybe 200-500 and then keep the rest to sell Like I said before to hacker sites,Say Catalyst Hax,FreeHax.....I have seen him on those message boards doing it.I should say bragging how he got them.

    I have micro ATX board. I'm probably gonna wait for the
    7000 series before I upgrade my GPU. Or lose patience and
    get a new board and another 6870 :D Xfire makes me nervous
    though with new games.

    Indeed:

    [​IMG]

    Not this time at least. Worked fine with beta. And surely a new driver is imminent. By the way, as we use an app called Xfire please call it Crossfire (which is correct anyway).

    Did I just read that they thought MW sits on a graphically impressive engine? I'm going to have to try blindfold reviews as well....

    Order had moved on to shipping in system so couldn't cancel with EA on Thursday so have to refuse delivery for a refund. Watch that physical from Origin show up today after all. Well, that's cool, would just cancel Gamestop and keep Origin's, which I got for only $48. Gamestop is $63 with tax and don't remit payment til pickup.

    So either way I'm playing late tonight. Will be nice to be one of the first and see most everyone at Rank 1...

    Yeah even though I was, of course, not ever buying this for any SP I am still a bit surprised and disappointed that it turned out to be another meh based on what I thought they were trying to do this time around and also pretty much everything I'ver seen and read until these reviews dropped.

    Well I'm no longer wondering if I should try SP first...
