      WOW. Really came in here and posted that. Rub it in to some of the biggest Gear heads I know. Shame on you.

      On a better note, went to Walmart and got my limited edition controller for $49, with some downloadable unlockable content. They had to call there store manager over b/c they couldn't sell it to me since the game isn't out yet. So I proudly pulled up my phone and showed them it was available on there website, and that the other stores in town were already sold out.

      I cannot wait!!!!!

      been looking forward to and reading many good reviews. Sounds like the multiplayer is going to get a lot of my time and I didn't play much multiplayer on the previous versions, other than some Horde mode from 2.

      Did the presale from Amazon as well, free $20 and .99 shipping so its there waiting for me when I get home and don't have to go the store.....That's just made Forza $20 cheaper

      Amazon is the way to go for buying/trading games. They give things like $20 preorder credits, 99cent day of release delivery, and much better prices on trade ins.

      I use Amazon for everything asl well. If you are a prime member, you also get release day delivery for free (and 2 day shipping free on everything else).

      I think its like 80 bucks a year, and with the amount of shopping I do on that site its worth it. My wife was a grad student when we signed up, and students get a year of prime free. After that, they've offered us $40 renewal fees, so we've never actually paid the full $80. After our age wars night in BLOPS, I'm abundantly aware of how much older I am than all of you...something to keep in mind for those of you in school.

      (it also works if you area teacher or still have a school email address...any .edu address will qualify you).

      One other thing on Amazon trade ins...

      The prices fluctuate like crazy, so if it appears artificially low, wait a week. A couple examples.

      I preordered Halo Launch. I used a prior $20 credit from another game purchase, so it was $40 delivered on launch (hehe) day.
      I didn't like it, so I checked the trade in value. Because they were having sales, it was down to a $30 trade in value a week after release. I held on another week after all the specials, etc ran their course, and the trade in went back up to 38.75. I basically paid $1.75 to play the game...all shipping was free, including trade in.

      I looked to trade in BFBC2. One week it was $11. The next week, $19.

      I sound like an Amazon salesman.

      I love amazon as well, but I'm skipping gears. I have joined the big bandwagon of BF3... This game will now dominate all and with my personal limited gaming (after8p and rare weekends) I'm only going to pickup BF3.

      I would hope as I put the video up, you have the option to hit the play button if YOU desire.

      I haven't watched the story yet either, but at least if I'm gonna spend hours on the MP, at least I know if it's better or not.

      I dont know how that is possible. New characters, weapons, enemies, horde mode, beast mode, etc. Did you play the beta at all?

      Watch the Dust to Dust trailer again...that gets me psyched.

      Just like Madden 12 "looks like" Madden 9-11 but its different. just like MW2 and BLOPS "look" the same but are different

      the Beta changed my frustration that i had with GoW2 online, GoW3 will be epic.

      is there "legacy" stick settings in this game? I've never played any of the gears.

      Can you make your own private rooms online to play with friends? And if so, is there a limit to how many friends you need to start a room?

      I used to love playing 1v1 against friends, or 2v2 or 1v3. It was always a lot of fun in socom but now that option has been removed from that game.

      Yes you can, limit idk yet cuz that might have changed to a bigger number. In the older games I played against 2 of my friends so you have many you vs any #number of ppl

      I just did my pre order for this. I never cared for MP but loved the campaign and Horde Mode in GOW2 was a blast. Can't wait until after work on tuesday!
