yeah i used Ghost,but that was mainly because since COD4 i have hated Spawn Killing Helicopters,so if it hides me from them then i am happy,as the spawn killing helicopters have and always will be game killers


did anyone else get an Xbox Live Rewards COD email?,you get a code that you input on the site and then it tells you about some 'great' deals

spend 400 points (on COD i think)before 30th November to get a MW3 baseball cap for your avatar

spend 800 points(again on COD)before 30th November to get a MW3 T-Shirt for your avatar

and it also gave you 3 wallpapers for your PC


all in all,a bit useless really

I haven't heard anyone going bananas over controversial scenes in this one's campaign.  Did they decide they didn't need the publicity boost this time around?

Here it (potentially) is. Link contains SPOILERS:

From what I've been hearing, this game is being sold all over before street date. Multiplayer servers are up. I don't know if they are resetting stats on Tuesday, but I hope so.

Since there will be immediately someone with "99999999999999999999999991337" kills, it's really pointless.

Friggin' Calvin has the game already  crybaby I would dearly love to be him today as I am single this weekend what with the wife away!!!
Anyhoo - he says that the game is good - hard but good.
He also said that the movement feels somewhat heavier than BLOPS - kinda in between MW2 and BLOPS.

Jealous - so very jealous.

yeah, same place.  I dont' have confirmation he has them though, I lost the phone number.  I'll just swing over there after I work on my dad's friend's computer.  Hope that goes quickly...

I don't want to get my hopes up though, it's possible he doesn't have it, it's already sold out, or he might not even still be there.  (though he's been there for 8 years or so)

Leave it to Activision to try something like that. 

I had no intention of getting this, but a bunch of former coworkers are picking it up, and they suckered me in.  I feel dirty.  Especially since I haven't gotten around to getting BF3 yet.  frown

How do you find this out?  Do you call around until you find a place that has decided to break the sale date?  With the wife heading to L.A. this could be a perfect weekend to get a head start on the game, especially since much of next weekend will be spent studying for three separate exams.   retard

One about 10 minutes away.  But I kind of need the trade-in value of current games in order to be able to pick up MW3.  That limits me a bit, and as Best Buy is offering 50% more on trade-ins they're the best deal at the moment.  

Edit:  Traded in a stack of old games, either finished or never going to be finished, earned $80 of trade-in credit, and pre-ordered MW3 more or less for "free".

See you all on Tuesday (I will not be going to the midnight release like with MW2).

As Hark and Romy both have suspect copies of the game, they have now become responsible to provide the rest of us with a full breakdown of the game modes, gameplay, weapon options, leveling system, etc.  If they're going to have a head start on everyone else (like they need it), then they might as well put it to use to help the community.  Fuckers.   finger

Some maps are very very small and the action is frantic. At the end of my night I got to play some larger ones which was nicer - the NY map looks just like Crysis 2 smile

My favorite thing the far is the Support package - because I am not good enough to ever string together more than 3 kills this package let's me stack them as they don't reset on death. Yay me!

One thing that I don't like thus far is that I feel that the structures are so close together and tall that it is very hard to target UAVs to shoot down. I have not come across many open areas like in other COD games.

Lots of fun thus far. I think Calvin said it best when he said that this is more like COD 2.5 rather than 3. The UMP is a bullet hose and my favorite gun thus far is the CM901 (?). Feels like the SCAR and ACR combined and also feels like it shoots milk bottles for ammo. The SCAR and ACR are still in the game though.

The CM901 is by far my favorite so far as well.

I ran into some horrible lag that ended up being on my end. (other computer in the house was uploading a remote backup... yay)  However during this time even though it was pretty unplayable, my latency meter never went below 3 green... that's bullshit.  The last straw was when I came around a corner and died and assumed it must have been a shotgun blast, then watch the killcam and he actually had emptied the entire magazine of a SCAR at me in short bursts...  Roll Eyes

noob tube - seriously nerfed - land one beside someone and you will need to clean up with either another tube or bullets.I guess that will please some  - but I expect more splash damage.

The inability to take anything out in the air is very upsetting - you'll all see what I mean. No its not %100 of the time - but certainly greater than %60-%70 of the time. You simply can see anything due to trees or buildings  disgust
