Torn between two lovers…

So yesterday the folks at Blizzard released patch 2.3 for World of Warcraft which is huge and makes all sorts of changes and adds tons of new content. I’ve been looking forward to it for quite some time now. So, naturally, I got a review copy of Call of Duty 4 in the mail on the same day. I loves me some CoD and it was mighty painful sitting there trying to decide which I should play first. Check out the new content in WoW or blow up shit in CoD4??

So I did a little of both. Let me just say that the first impressions I have of CoD4 are amazing. The environments are scary real and it has reinforced what a good decision I made in not joining the military. More on that once I finish the single player campaign.

As for WoW, there’s so much that’s changed in the 2.3 patch that it’s going to take awhile to dig through it all. I definitely noticed that leveling has sped up quite a bit as they said it would and I’ve done quite a few of the 50 new quests in Dustwallow Marsh which has made for a nice change of pace.

Gameplay footage from “Call of Duty 4.”

I was a big fan of Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2 as they are two of the finest first person shooters on the market. I have no idea how good Call of Duty 3 is because it’s a console only title and A) I don’t play FPS games on consoles as I prefer keyboard and mouse controls and B) I don’t have an Xbox 360 to play it on.

When I heard CoD 4 was going to leave the World War II era behind and jump into the 21st century I was a little concerned, but after seeing the following footage the game in action it’s once again a must buy.
