For those of you expecting a post about Fallout, I apologize. In fact, you might just want to stop reading now because this post is about Modern Warfare 3.
I’m super late to the MW3 party. I was an early adopter of pretty much every Call of Duty game up to the original MW, which I skipped for a while, but eventually joined in on. It should also be noted that I didn’t start playing multiplayer CoD until MW2, which is mostly because I didn’t have fun – but once I started playing with friends, it was a great experience (for the most part). Once I had the MP bug, I played with fairly reasonable frequency on my own, just because.
Anyway, for one reason or another, I decided to forgo MW3, even though I had had a blast with Black Ops. However, this weekend, I got the itch. It’s been growing, but manageable (and ME3 was doing a fine job as a placebo), however, this weekend I cracked. I had a 50% of a used game coupon at Best Buy, plus some Reward Zone certificates, so at a cost of $0, it was a great deal.
I started playing SP on Friday night. I’ve always been an SP player for FPS games. Sure, I could have dove in to MP (but, none of my friends were on, so, SP was an easy choice). The story is decent, the environments fantastic.
Saturday, I played MP. Man, how have I missed that. I suck, but its still enjoyable. I get frustrated, yet I want to play more. I don’t know. It makes me feel dirty.
So yea. I’m back on the MW. Goodbye, sleep.
