You can play online or wait till its cheap, if you try both it won't work :)

Loved the first one, the second one bored me senseless. I'll probably pick up the third one when the price drops.

I've got the Limited Edition on order. Dissapointed that there's no gun available this time round, I was looking forward to getting a full size replica mulcher!

Isn't MW really Call of Duty 7 or something like that? Not that many games in 3rd installment, a lot of it is marketing, rejigging titles so they seem 'new'.

Every time I see GoW abbreviated on a forum, I'm never sure if its 'Gears' or 'God' of War the thread is about. Its taken me long enough to adjust to MW not being about Mech Warrior.

Zero interest on playing Gears 3 online, let alone getting a Gold sub.So it'll be pick up 2nd hand for the SP game, just to finish the story.

Same for Resistance 3, just not feeling like shelling out full whack for last installment, plot wise.

I've been playing GoW recently. Frst was good except for the Final Boss and the second had far too many cutscenes and too much melodrama IMO. Haven't tried the third yet.
