Anybody else likely to get the PC version? It'd be cool to do the online co-op missions with some of you folks. I know the entire friggin' world is kicking and screaming over 9v9 online matches and IWNET, but...srsly. The campaigns are what's best about the series anyhow, and the online should still definitely be playable. I think they're judging Modern Warfare 2 without giving it a chance, and frankly, there are already a million things going for it, so there are few reasons why it shouldn't wind up being great.
So...if anybody wants to do the PC version co-op with me, my screen name will just be WaterDumple and I'll almost certainly be rolling with an LMG.

Anybody else got it yet?
I haven't opened my router's NAT yet so I can't do a whole lot, but so far the singleplayer seems weaker than CoD4 whereas the multiplayer is stronger. The SpecOps singleplayer is a fine piece of work, though.

I've mostly been going with "Team Player," although I might switch to "Unbreakable". I'm using the medic helmet emblem since it goes with "Team Player," although I might switch if I can find something not too overused.
I'm a big fan of the MG4. For some reason, I'm far more accurate with its silencer than the Holographic Sight. The Tactical Insertion is pretty fun too, if you can sneak to the back with a shotgun and plant it, you can wreck the other team. Especially if you can manage to bag one of their Care Packages.

Just got to see the nuke in action. We were losing a capture the flag match 3-1 when time was running out, but then some guy actually managed to get one and win the match for us. The other team was hilarious--One guy complained that it "Kills everybody on the team". What, did he think a nuclear bomb is TNT or something?

That's sort of hard to say, because the campaign, spec ops, and multiplayer are so completely different that it would be hard to really pin something down. The multiplayer can be really good, but it still holds some of the old flaws such as being able to fire while jumping, which makes bunnyhopping a nightmare. Campaign too can be really good, but it often goes through the plot too quickly so you have no idea what's going on. Spec ops is usually spot on, but is sometimes unfair. Each mode has its gives and takes, although right now spec ops seems like the most polished.
