Why not? It’s probably because I’m bloody awful at it. I wasn’t much good when it came to Call of Duty 4 but this is just depressing. I’m lucky if I can kill half as many times as I get to press the respawn button. If you want an opinion on the beta from somebody who can actually play long enough to have one, you might want to check out Grim’s impressions (to be posted tomorrow). I will say one thing, though: Dogs are really cool.
Now for some news that we could not find time to post in the glut of post-TGS coverage that found its way on the site today. Enjoy.
