    It's only $42 from Amazon and Walmart today, quite a reduction for just day 2 of release. THQ announced that it sold 375k units yesterday, a huge number for them. With the price drop the sales numbers should stay strong and build some momentum, they're definitely trying to rope in the gamers who are still on the fence.

    If You play on PC look for Monk's Militia server. I'm usually there or their BFBC2 server.

    Multiplayer needs to be fixed. I normally don't bitch about getting sniped but some of these people can snipe from miles away with an SMG or pistol. Single player is pretty awesome since I didn't expect much from it.

    If THQ were to reduce the pricing, this would happen across all retailers at the same time to blow through inventory, and usually happens months after a launch according to various factors in sales data.

    THQ had no knowledge of the price reduction by Amazon or WalMart until it already happened. This was a case of two retailers in a dirty price war, lowering their prices against each other to keep their market share, and not following the mandatory MAP.

    Their prices are back up to where they should be.

    Frolov, were you handling the media buying side of things, i.e. Mediavest? PM me with your contact's name. I probably know him/her.

    Watched the guys @ work play MP today. Whoever said it "looked ugly" in the various reviews was simply-put: blind. It's certainly no worse than COD or BF. Servers were still laggy, and a few bizarre deaths ensued. One resulted in a teleport into a closed section of map and suicide 10 secs later.

    Completely disagree with you on the visuals.
    After playing this game for the past few days I can say that the one MAJOR disappointment are the graphics and animation. If you're within a couple steps of a wall, it is all pixels and many objects take way too long to load in the maps.
    While you're just standing there, the graphics surely aren't horrendous, but they look very outdated and compared to CoD and Battlefield they just don't compare.

    I wouldn't say ugly, more like very unimpressive. I played through the solo campaign in about 5 hours over 2 days, so yeah very short and very disappointing in that respect.

    Not real crazy about the gun sound effects. Some of the weapons sound like BB guns.

    What i really hated was the follow the leader aspect of the game. Only really one way to go about doing the missions and honestly i hate waiting for the AI. They seem to be pretty useless anyway.

    Multiplayer really reminds me of BF, nothing special. You want to see some impressive graphics check out the new video for BF3.

    You're right, didn't realize the price went right back up the next day. I bet Amazon and Wal-Mart did sell a ton of copies on Wednesday though, with all the buzz about the game in the press the lower prices probably enticed many gamers who hadn't made their decision to buy yet.

    Also, sent you a PM about my peeps there @ THQ.

    People keep telling me the PVP is what this game is all about, so this weekend I've been trying my best to give it a chance. All i can say is this game is already hacked to death.

    Atleast BF has some kind of hack detection.
