We know you're anxiously awaiting the official unveiling of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 . Admit it.

And although we were hoping to see that announcement within the next few hours, it seems it's a few days off. According to the MW3 Facebook page , the game's world premiere is set for May 23; it'll happen during "Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on ESPN." They just keep teasing us, but it's not like we're still in the dark; we've already seen video teasers, giant information leaks (some of which reluctantly pseudo-confirmed by Activision), and even the proposed release date (November 8). Besides, there's no question that Modern Warfare 3 will drop for the holiday season, and there's no doubt it'll be the biggest game of the year. It's a little unfortunate that we can predict that so easily but hey, the hardcore gamers know other titles exist.

At the very least, we'll be interested to see if MW3 can measure up to what we've seen of Battlefield 3 thus far.

You do realize by posting "First", you come across as a loser/tool/douchebag/idiot/scumbag/dumb$hit

Will you guys grow up? "oh noez, he said first, let's throw a fit of rage like little girls"

Anyway, agreed with you Jdog. I got bored of Black Ops fairly fast and went back to Modern Warfare 2. What a difference in quality, it's amazing. I love MW2. <3

LOL, figures you'd stick up for him. You're also known for your ignorance on these boards so go right ahead and display it again.

It's well understood that posting First is frowned upon and Ben has made it clear it's not welcome in these parts. If someone chooses to do it then we have every right to make fun of them and call them out for the ignorant tool they are.

Do you do everything a powerful or authority figure tells you to do? Probably not. So stop complaining when it happens over the Internet.

I gotta stick up for that dude, he seems to be getting thrashed by others fairly often. Someone has to cut him some slack.

What an idiotic question. You're honestly going to suggest that I must follow every written rule regardless of its content simply because I choose to call someone out for being an obvious tool?

You're no better than he is if you're going to blindly stick up for him because others are "thrashing" him. Ever stop to think that maybe he deserves it?

Seriously what is this, IGN? No "first" crap here, its obvious your comment is first and frankly nobody cares.

Now, cod has its fair share of hate I personally want to snap my black ops disk in half at times, but if they can turn it around with this new one maybe people on this site will get it.

@The Art of War
I'll add you to the list of people to ignore on here. Overall, a great community of people but there are a few posters that give ZERO reason to read their posts. You're definitely one of them.

Keep up the good work of being irrelevant.

…I know you missed me Ben 🙂

jdog, Arto'War,
It's been well established here for a good long time that the whole 'first' thing is frowned upon by the community at large because of the immaturity it shows. It's not about getting one's knickers in a twist, it is simply that *we* do not appreciate it as it often results in a worthless post and a waste of everyone's time. Just… don't do it.

LV,
I dunno about anyone else, but I missed ya!

well…I'm new here so maybe I don't have as much credibility as any of you guys but I do want to say that…while posting 'First' might be immature,there are certain things that we do just for fun…simple stuff right?…so why are u all jumping on the 'thrash' wagon??… moreover, jdog did post some relevant stuff and didn't just say 'first'.

@limitedvertigo:There are many ways you can get your point across to someone,but calling them "loser/tool/douchebag/idiot/scumbag/dumb$hit " is NOT one of them.Just so you know.

Vigilante,
I'm sorry, but I fail to understand how anyone derives fun from typing a completely worthless 'first' message in a thread. It's a simple waste of energy. I had no problem with jdog whatsoever until he started this nonsense.

As for Arto'War and his points, he's annoyed me too many times in the past for me to care for his opinion too much. I'm leaving this conversation now. It's gone too far, and it should go no further.

Its not so much that hes type First, more that its a worthless post. This isnt meant to be a site with worthless posts.

This one isnt too bad, he said a productive comment. So why mention he's first; when we can ALL see it. If anyone cared he'd get a frickin medal for coming first in this and He'd have lots of thumbs up and everyone would congratulate him.

Coming first is compleeeetely irrelevant in worthwhile discussion. so by him pointing it out, its not worthwhile discussion. And thats what we dont want on this site. So lets keep it worthwhile hey.

I'm not a fan of the "first" thing either.

But jdog has posted some pretty relevant and good posts the last few days. I probably would have gone about telling him a little differently. :p

Always the charmer! Nice to have you back livening up otherwise drab message boards! :p (That's not meant to sound sarcastic if it does. Really, it's good to see you around.)

Wow well I'd delete the comment if I could but it doesn't let me.
Just a few things to note from all of this:
-never post the word FIRST again on here
-LimitedVertigo is an a hole like seriously a big big a hole
[email protected] Art Of War, you're cool thanks for stickin up for me and whatnot, oh and thanks for noticing that not only was my foment first but it was not just a plain old, arrogant first coment I actually stated something worthy of conversating.
-LimitedVertigo is a basher so make sure to watch out for this dude, again he is an a hole
[email protected], I'm not too familiar with the PSX community because to be honest never really cared to read the ccoments. I've been following this site for years and now I've decided to start sharing my opinion and views on gaming and the daily news
[email protected] again thanks for noticing
[email protected] 2nd comment, lol commenting at all is a waste of energy, something else to notice: why is everyone not using their spare time to actually game instead of talking about it lol something else to think about
[email protected] I see your point but man did this blow out of proportion or what?
[email protected] lol another wrestling fan
-make sure I never post the word FIRST on here peace everyone except for that vertigo guy, I dislike him from now on

1) In that case I'll forgive you… this time.
2) True, it is a waste of time, but one does get enjoyment out of it. The reason I'm on here is because I often don't feel like playing and would rather have civilised discussion about the hobby and life in general. I'm not sure why everyone else does though.

And if you think that this got out of hand, you should have seen the results of my crack at Independence Day last year… Yikes.

Must be new to the human species if you honestly think you're anything other than a tool. I'll gladly accept the label of a-hole if it means I get to expose worthless posters like yourself.

@Underdog15
Thanks I'm glad someone has been noticing and I would actually like to hear the way you would have gone about replying to the First coment I posted

Underdog15

I've responded to them lots before. If there's a legitimate comment besides just saying first, I usually just say something quick about the first thing mostly around people not really liking it here, (or possibly call it lame; that's something I would say, knowing me, lol), then I'd respond to the rest of your comment.

If all they write is first, I just downvote and go about my day. Someone else will explode and I'd rather not be a part of the convo. lol

If I'm honest, one of my first comments here ever was "FIRST!" way way back when I first subscribed to the site newsletter. I probably went a few years before participating in the comments after that. But I was caught up in what the internetz told me was cool. I didn't expect to get facewashed by the sweaty palms of internet junkies. lol.

In the end, though, I do like the atmosphere this site has, and although I felt shitty way back a bunch of years ago, I am glad now that kind of thing gets shut down quickly. Might be nice to do it differently, but I am glad it's frowned on. Those 20 downvotes should be enough to get the point across without too much messaging, I'm sure. :p

Also, LV's a good dude at heart. He just likely hasn't been laid in a couple days or something. :p I do value his input on numerous articles. He often provides an insight dissimilar to what I would see in something, which is good. We don't want all the regulars thinking the same way!

The Art of War,

<<<<grow up>>>>

HUH, WHAT?…. posting "first" is usually the very first sign of some 8 year old.

And another thing, that's the only 1 thing I've called him out on as of yet.

So in all reality there "SON", you can keep on sticking up for those 2 immature "first" posts of his, but I'm a 58 year old "MAN", and I'm the VERY LAST person that needs growing up.

Wow, good continence on the "juvenile" mentality there.

The only thing that you should be doing is to ask yourself this 1 simple question.
Q. Does Saint the biker, even give a f*ck what I think????

Right, like some young punka$$ hiding behind his computer could even begin trying to treat me like a child.

It definitely does, which dissapoints me. But if the game is any fun (compared now to MW and MW2 and BBC3 (yes i found MW2 fun, it got old, but i enjoyed it)) then i might just have to pick it up.
Not forgetting ofcourse, U3 should be completely awesome online too and i dont need MW3. But i like shooters and that addictive fun. So i might get it.
But maybe not, being an addict has its problems.

Well, if it's during game four, you know I'll see it since I'll be drinking a brew while watching San Jose lose their 4th straight!

I'm still undecided about MW3. I have a love/hate relationship with the games, and I hate the fact that despite the huge budget they should have, there are so so so many flaws in multiplayer. But having played MW and MW2, it'll be hard not to continue the SP campaign. It'll likely be at least a rental for me for the SP. I'll probably leave my multiplayer gaming to UC3 and the next AC.

Well since there are three studios working on this, maybe it will be semi refreshing. Since Raven is developing the multi-player, maybe they are capable of both adding new features to multi-player and keep it relatively balanced.
