    It's terrible but then it's not terrible, just wish they had put more time into the quality of the game and actually beta tested It. Other then that It's alright.

    AND SERVERS

    The multiplayer itself can be fun sometimes, as long as you're the one with like 20 fucking jets flying around bombing everyone when they spawn.

    the singleplayer was retarded, but it has some okay adrenaline rushes.

    overall: ehh..

    Prior to the maintenance me nerdboy and supertoaster had an argument about MW2 and we were raging.

    I think the game is really fun despite local hosting. :O

    Yeah today I was rocket jumping and I was like "... why am I taking so much rocket jumping damage"

    Most of the time I have fun playing, but then there are times that you notice a lot of bullshit because of lag. Makes me mad and just a lot of little things that they could have refined but decided not too, to get an early release date. When I'm host tho this never happens.

    +Experienced my first "nuke boosters" today, couldn't follow them to kill them, PS3 doesn't support that.

    Scheduled Maintenance Downtime Underway
    February 18, 2010, 6:00 pm - Valve - General Announcement
    The schedule maintenance for Steam is now underway and will last three hours at most ending at 9:00 PM Pacific time.

    Some Steam services are now offline during this time including the Steam Community, in-game matchmaking or lobbies, downloading games from Steam content servers, and making purchases from the Steam store. Games that do not rely on Steam matchmaking services should remain playable.

    News updates and any further information will be posted in this space.

    We will work to make this downtime as short as possible. Thank you for your patience!

    I lol'd

    Yeah I didn't get anything until about 20 minutes ago, so ~40 minutes for me. Perhaps it was the infrequent checks, but that was posted at 9:32 Pacific, so..
