I've been watching video games again... because its video game release season (that's what PJ tells me, anyway), and as far as I can tell, this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 thing is a big deal... possibly the biggest. I know a lot of people are probably going to compare this to Battlefield 3 (again, that's what PJ tells me) but I'm going to avoid doing that because I feel like they are actually very different games, even though they have baseline similarities- like both being WW3 type games, and taking place in NYC as well as major European cities. Moving on...
I knew this wouldn't be complete if I didn't comment on the on-line gaming mode. After a few weeks of Team Deathmatch and cursing 12 year old boys on surround sound, I can give a bit of insight. My one comment is that all the maps seem kind of... similar. Sure, they are literally all over the world and look totally different... but the density of spaces and the actual size of the areas are all pretty much the same. I'm hoping that this is something they will work on with map packs... or blah blah blah I just watch this crap because I have to.
