I finished the campaign a moment ago (it's only about 4 hours long). It's neat and I'm glad that we have another CoD single player campaign, but there aren't that many memorable missions or moments. The couple of times you clear a building with NVGs are probably the ones that stuck with me the most.

They sequel bait a "Modern Warfare 2" really hard and name drop some characters from the original Modern Warfare and MW2. Some characters repeat memorable lines from CoD4 a handful of times too, which was pretty funny. But also kinda weird? Like it felt like the current Infinity Ward was afraid of really making a "Modern Warfare" of their own.

Wow. I can't believe it's taken this long for an FPS to incorporate slicing the pie.

STP is a tactic where you pivot off of the corner when you attempt to clear a blind spot. Jeff mentions it at around 23min when they talk about mounting on surfaces.

I mean, any FPS with movement technically already incorporates slicing the pie, since you're not supposed to stick your face against the corner anyway, but instead step away from it.

@lumpofdeformity: If you ask her, she denies that Garte was the reason she quit and says that she was flattered that he asked her out.

@noelveiga: Damn, somehow they managed to make a street circuit in New York that's even more anemic than Sochi.
Personally, I'm well aware of Formula E and watch F1 (and listen to Shift+F1 sometimes). I was just kinda stunned that Vinny and Alex didn't know about Monaco or didn't know that it's a street circuit.

@vinny@alex Street circuits are on closed-off public roads. One of the most famous races in the world, the Monaco Grand Prix, is on the streets of Monte Carlo:

I like Kind Words a lot, but I spend most of my time just looking through requests. I don't reply to requests that deal with issues I don't have personal experience with.
Also, I put out my own request and finally managed to cry for the first time in ten years while reading the responses.
