You sound like one of those fucktards that was posting during the Super Street Fighter 4 live gameplay session. Who gives a shit how good they are at a game, we are here to get their opinions on the game, not critique their skills. I hate you sir.

Bailout's the only map that interests me.

 honestly, first quicklook where it felt more like a commercial for the product, desperately trying to justify this map pack's worth.  
Compare this pile of shit to the days of ut2k4 where you got 40 (awesome) maps for free.

I'm actually still baffled how people can be good at this game. 
 
I think MW2 is probably the hardest FPS game I've ever played.  I mean, I find it even harder than the first America's Army (which people died real fast). I've done fairly well at America's Army, Counter Strike, Halo 1-3, all the Rainbow Six games, all the Battlefield games . . . and I tell you, I absolutely blow chunks at MW2. My typical score is like 5 kills and 11 deaths. Once in a long while I'll get maybe 17-19 kills and about 15 deaths. My best score ever was 22 kills. I only did that ONCE.
 
The only people that seem to be on XBOX when I log on are people that can 360 jump and headshot you with an Intervention while doing their taxes. It also doesn't help that in "Modern Warfare" ... when there's a guy with a knife running straight toward a guy with a gun shooting him in the chest, neck, and face... the guy with the knife usually wins.
 
The game is gorgeous but man, I rarely have fun playing it.  I think I would've stopped long ago if my friends weren't playing it.

I think it's more that it requires so little skill someone can pick up the game, figure out how to move sprint and shoot, then spend the rest of the game running around like a dumbass spraying his gun and still have a positive K/D.

Glad to see that Jeff & I pick the same gear types of heavy machine gun & missiles, hard to not go with such a good combination. Love the movie posters & remembering fondly when other games used to do this a lot to decorate their levels.   
 
Would have liked the video game cabinets in this game to show a loop of the last kill or death. I always thought that the Crash map needed the helicopter to occasionally start up the rotor to kill anyone nearby similar to the map in TF2 with the train.

Put your button layout on tactical.  Crouching with the right analog stick is really, really useful.

woah, can't believe they missed it but after they played on favela before they left the lobby Salvage was shown as the next map to play, so i guess they throw it in with the other maps right away, unlike what they did on WaW.

I'm too old to re-learn aiming with gamepad controls to a level where I can play against other people.
 
And why do people keep trying to justify the price by saying they're really good maps? I don't think the rational among us are trying to contest that. I only contest the fact that it cost them little to nothing to port over an existing map onto a sequel that uses the same engine. Again, I guess I'm just an old gamer, having been through the Valve era of having a bunch of old Counter-Strike maps rebuilt from the ground up and ported across clearly different engines and released for free. Hell, before Turtle Rock was fully acquired by Valve they built the CS bot, which was, again, released for free in an update. Berate me all you want, but I miss those days.

jeez at least when Bungie remade Halo maps they changed the look.  These look exactly the same.

And it probably took half the man total man hours to put all 40 of them together too. Times have changed, move on. Free is no longer an internet business model like it was a few years ago, so if you think paying for maps is bad, I'm pretty sure this is only the beginning.

I can't wait to play the new map pack and the best part about it is it includes a couple COD4 maps!!!! You guys are moving to a new office?! I didn't expect that to happen this soon.

Sci Fi is next. BF2142 (or maybe PlanetSide) was the forerunner to the upcoming style.
 
Also it seems like Jeff just wants to destroy things that cannot be destroyed. Too bad there's not a similarly styled game that just got new maps which allows you to destroy everything.

Man that title and pic system has turned into the clan douchebag identification system.
The future of the franchise is getting whored into a hole like Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero.

What about a Mass Effect themed FPS?  I know ME is a TPS but it would give people a chance to play as factions other than human.
