Well, all you midnight launchers and streetdate breakers, have a great time tonight. Hopefully I will be online around 11:30am tomorrow. Or more likely I will be playing SP because Live has crashed.

I have another of the much more common 'dive into someone's knife' move...

Waiting on the theater site to update, got one more to share that's a doozy.

CODBO breaks records as GameStop's highest pre-ordered game EVAR (Eurogamer link).

Can someone start a separate impressions thread for this? We don't need to start them 10 pages in, do we?

It's pretty simple.  We can just edit the title stating, impressions start at page so and so.  Why clutter things up?

A new feature.  There's a downside, it takes some time to recover.

Yep and even worse when you dive head first into a claymore.

Months?   It's been hours or days for me the last two times.   I think I'll just go 360 this time thank you very much.

That's kind of surprising.  I feel like the hype for Black Ops is far, far less than it was for Modern Warfare 2.  Maybe it's just me, though.

It's pretty simple.  We can just edit the title stating, impressions start at page so and so.  Why clutter things up?

It's hard to jump into an impressions thread that's 30 pages long, that's why. I don't get the incessant need to keep everything related to a particular game in one thread.

Anyways, I'll leave it up to someone else to decide if they want to start a new thread since I won't be getting to the game right away.

I was going to skip the SP and go right to the MP, but Kotaku put up a review that makes the single player portion of the game sound really good. Really good, and really short. Only five hours to complete.

Normally I would bash five hours as being a pathetic attempt at single player, but in this case I'm glad it's so short. It will be a good distraction from the MP. Maybe I'll tackle the single player game this weekend, or tonight if Live is down.

So you're saying you can't read a subject that will say, impressions start on page "12" and then you can't click on page 12?

What happens if we did create a new impressions thread.  A week goes by, and there's 10 + pages already written.  You've already read the first 5 pages, earlier in the week, and now you want to read the rest....   It's the same thing... except, more clutter.

It's a prerequisite to have at least three pages of filler before actual impressions are posted in an "impressions thread", and given that requirement impressions would be delayed even further by first having to fulfill that 3-page minimum.  As we have already met that requirement impressions can start right away.

Edit:  Can we at least get rid of that stupid question mark in the thread title?  That seems like a reasonable compromise.

I was actually going to stop at Best Buy as it's on my way home from class and I have a $5 off Reward Zone coupon.  But then I realized I have a $10 gift card to Target from using their pharmacy for the first time.  It isn't much, but better than nothing.

I sort of enjoy/don't enjoy reading the official forums (when they are not 404ing). Most of the threads are about how the game is totally broken: overpowered SMGs, game is too fast, quickscoping doesn't work, some perks are useless, some perks are overpowered, blah, blah, blah...
