Not really bro, I just hate to tweak and tinker, therefore I don't want to read a 100+ page thread of tweaks, how good someone's framerate is, AA, AF, etc. Video games are a source of entertainment and fun, and CoD delivers. I rarely hear about the fun factor of games anymore due to all the benchmarking going on.

Funny you should mention 12 year olds. I tried for years getting my coworkers and friends on the PC bandwagon and they simply wouldn't budge. I missed a lot of gaming with my friends, not to mention all the awesome games that are console only. It's going to be a great feeling when I launch MW3 and I can play with my friends!

As for your last comment, that was uncalled for. I expect that garbage type of comment from some other "elitests" around here but not from you.

Back on topic, I'm really stoked about Monday night. I've decided that I'm going to my local GameStop midnight release since I have Tuesday off.

I'm just giving you **** for leaving the PC world. It was sarcasm. When your box does red ring, I hope you come back to the dark side... we need all the help we can get to keep PC gaming alive.

I know man, everyone here has been giving me crap for it. I don't see any point in going back to a platform that software devs are leaving in the dust. No ones wallet is or will ever keep PC gaming alive, at least for me. It's all up to the people who make the games IMO.

Back on topic, I've been checking around for any reviews on the game, but unfortunately no site has posted their thoughts up yet. I think one thing that's really awesome is that IW has really stepped up MP with custom game rules, kill confirmed and they FINALLY balanced out the kill/point streaks.

While Black Ops was fun, it was never as fun as MW2. Cannot wait to get my copy on Monday night.

Just 13 more hours to go.

Debating on whether I want to drive the extra 10-15 minutes to go to Best Buy or just go to Gamestop. BB is offering 12 months of XBL for $35 when you buy MW3. I would rather go to Gamestop since it's closer to home. I may just do that and wait for another XBL deal to come along.

Ugh, don't make me delete this thread.

mailman, you don't have any interest in the console version of this game, so get out of the thread and stay out. And I don't need a response, just stay out.

Great idea to start this thread here instead of mixing in the main gaming forum. Nice one...

Waited in line for 45 mins to get my wristband. Going back to Gamestop in a few hours to be #29 in line. Stoked!

Walmart was packed and they don't allow people sometimes to wait for the game.

Gamestop is allowing people that are waiting to play the game at 8PM and they are ordering pizza for everyone at 9PM. Not a bad way to spend your Monday night. Me however, I came back home and won't go back for another 1.5 hours. Will try to sneak a game in while waiting.
