    There's a separate thread to talk about Battlefield 3, so let's not turn this into an argument over which game is going to be better.

    What are you looking forward to about this game? Anything you want to see go away/come back?

    Personally, I hope this goes more of a simplistic route like CoD4. To me, that's still the best game in the series.

    The few videos I've seen for MW3 look promising. I'm excited about the new "Kill Confirmed" game mode. All these random grenades/tubes/spawnahawks become nearly obsolete.

    Also, Survival looks like a lot of fun. Instead of being confined to one building and running around to find a box and spend 1k points only to pull out a Makarov, you can choose which weapon/perk/equipment you want at any of several ammo points throughout a typical multiplayer menu.

    Never understood what comes in this. Can you explain? What makes it worth the extra $40?

    I'm pretty sure you get free DLC for a year with this one. Might be other perks, but I heard that from someone else.

    I'm done with CoD after Black Ops. It's just too boring anymore.

    Black Ops and WaW sucked. COD4 was legit and MW3 looks like it could rival that IMO

    They need to fix the spawning in this one. I couldn't even begin to count the number of times I've been killed within a second after respawning.

    My other complaint would be last stand. You put someone in last stand and before you even have a chance to finish them off, their pistol is like a continuous fire from their primary weapon when they were downed.

    By far my two biggest frustrations.

    The free DLC makes it well worth it. Get a map a month. Get Founder status and skins and emblems and titles.

    Also, if you had been paying any attention jonzee330, they took Last Stand out.

    They still have it in as a death streak, and that's my main beef with the series now.. These retarded death streaks.

    Treyarch has absolutely killed this series. All they care about is Nazi Zombies. I'm getting both this and BF3 for certain, but I honestly don't know if I'm going to pick up another Treyarch CoD title after the debacle that was Black Ops.

    A deathstreak that requires SIX deaths in a row without a kill. It's out. Don't worry. Non-factor. NON-FACTOR.

    When did they take last stand out? I played B.O last night and it was still in there?? Or are you saying it has been taken out in MW3?

    It's been taken out of MW3. The deathstreak is a NON-FACTOR. IRRELEVANT.

    Yes, Treyarch is hot garbage. I'm hoping Activision and whatever is left of Infinity Ward can continue to put out good products, however. Honestly, I consider them to be two almost entirely different series at this point. CoD4 was amazing, MW2 was good...WaW and Black Ops were crap. I'm a CoD lifer, but I doubt I'll buy the next Treyarch game.

    CoD4 was one of the best shooters of the last decade, period. MW2 was very good as well. WaW and Black Ops have been nothing but absolute crap. I never played CoD3 but I heard it was hot garbage as well. The thing that pisses me off (and should piss off anybody else who plays CoD) is that after all the money they make off of selling map packs, including a map pack that had nothing BUT Nazi Zombies maps, they refuse to dump any of that money into better servers or patching some of the horrid problems with their games. Instead, it's the same recycled formula over and over again with them. I wish somebody could call them out on it or there was some way to prevent them from making another title.

    Definitely can't wait to play this.

    Xbox Live account: SILKY J0HNS0N 6 (note: those are zeros not O's in J0HNS0N)

    Hit me up if anyone interested in playing. Right now still playing Black Ops.

    Idk I really liked Black ops and WAW and grew to dislike MW2 more and more.

    :hide:

    either way I already pre-ordered MW3. There really isn't anything better than a COD game to get a bunch of friends together and play online.

    I was unaware that Treyarch had reps on this site. :chuckles:


    EDIT: To be fair, I enjoyed WaW for a few months, then I grew to hate it and was all too happy to trade it back for MW2. My favorite class was a Gewher-43 with a silencer, sleight of hand, and satchels (I think I may have had Dead Silence/Ninja or whatever it was called on that game). I also used a Mosin Nagant with irons only.

    I rock with the semi-auto and sniper rifles on these games, but MW2 and Black Ops have been VERY disappointing in the amount that they included. MW2 really only had one semi-auto (the FAL) and I only really liked a couple of the sniper rifles on that game (the Intervention being far and away my favorite). Black Ops was disappointing in that there were very few maps that you could really snipe on. It's definitely a game geared towards run and gun and close quarters combat.

    I loved WaW. Absolutely loved it. Maybe it was because of the people I played it with, or the fact I used those overpowered n00btubes, but I loved it. Black Ops, loved at the beginning, but hated as time went on.
