We didn;t have this console before just PS2 and WIi. My kids are young and my ow 9 year does play MW3 as he got intorduced by neighbor. Not my choice but he mastered pretty quick. He does play Campaign and think he is 65% throgh it. I like it but can't get out of the damn plane! I do know 2 maos well and my scores tend to be higher there, but I still stand around to much and the suckes won;t stop jumping and moving while I am trying to shoot them. Not very cooperative if you ask me. Maybe I should change game tag to "old guy who sucks, please stand still"![/quote]
No, no--you have to have a name like 'Noob Killer', or 'Ownage'--ha ha. I just play by the same name I use here so if you see it in a game you will know who just knifed you to death--lol. 'Steam', the game developer and online game retailer, has a free weekend for MW3 right now, so I downloaded the game from them overnight. I just finished an hour of online play. It is very similar to CoD4 (which I would recommend even though it is 3-4 years old) in terms of the feel of the gameplay. I played several maps, but two I liked were 'Lockdown', and especially 'Carbon'. I liked them in large part because they involve a lot of close quarters fighting in small buildings, corridors, alleyways, etc. As I am nearsighted, I have always found I do better in such environments--lots of cover helps to avoid being sniped as well. In my best round I had 6 or 7 kills to 9 deaths. Based on what I saw I will definitely buy this game for the multiplayer segment--I could tell it is a game I could hold my own in in due course. In HL2DM mentioned in my last post the jumping and strafing was a key component to staying alive in that game, and you will see a fair bit of that in CoD. Avoid standing still for any length of time unless using cover. Also learn to use melee to get kills in up close encounters--often faster than using other weapons.
Better put in a comment about the ST30 or they'll give me a warning about being off topic--I would say there was 0 input lag in MW3, and the game looked great on this set. I play almost always in 'game' mode when in multiplayer, but use 'Custom' for singleplayer sometimes with D-nice settings. Those settings looked really very good in Crysis 2, but really kill CoD games for some reason--make them look almost colorless. So I guess it depends on the game which Picture mode or settings will be best. If you enjoy the online play stick with it--you can only improve with time.
