Well now that the maps are out, what do you think?

What a mess the new Modern Warfare 2 map packs have been for some. People stayed up all night for the launch and it was pushed back till almost early afternoon for some, due to a code update error after download. Lot’s of cranky gamers yesterday! I have yet to spend a lot of time on them, but from what I have seen they are pretty amazing.
The new map “bailout” is a large map, with lots of areas to snipe and close range fun. I went through this map with a few of my girls (PMS Boomer & PMS Acid) to check out every angle and spot possible. “Bailout” includes first and second story apartment/condos with lots of stairs, small rooms, a pool, and a work out room! Oh yeah, don’t worry, your guy can get a work out in the gym while playing SnD.
Overall, I think the maps are amazing and the only complaints I have heard in lobbies are about camping. I think after a few weeks of the maps being so new, people will stop camping as much. People are so new to these maps and don’t know how to maneuver around them so they are going to stay with what works for them. So yeah, stop crying about the camping, if you know where they are go kick their booty!
If you are attempting to download the new Modern Warfare Stimulus Package, might I suggest putting it on hold.
IW did their part with the pack, MS dropped the ball with the patch. Here are a few of the latest updates from the MS crew…
The Stimulus Package needs a Title Update and it didn’t go out properly. We’re pushing it out now – it won’t be long.
If you’re getting “Can’t download the update” that’s us putting the latest update in place. Excuse our dust, we’ll be done ASAP.(via @thevowel)
So sit tight kiddos and keep an eye on your twitter screens.
Thanks for the feedback! I’m going to be sitting with production & giving you updates as they come regarding when you can expect to play. ~(via @fourzerotwo)
Right now the team (and @thevowel) is getting things in order so this will be fixed VERY soon (within hours.)~ (via @majornelson)
BTW: When I say hours, many of you may have it fixed before then. That’s a worst case scenario. Thanks to many of your for your patience. ~(via @majornelson)
Alright, thanks to @thevowel and the team over at #xboxlive- the #MW2 title update is now live (just downloaded it), the DLC is good to go. (via @fourzerotwo)
Ok peeps systems should be a go as of now. For those who are still getting errors or can’t join games, be patient. They are still working on it and you are NOT the only on that has issues. Remember there is a world outside your own bedroom full of people just as pissed as you.
To start off my recap of my amazing weekend at PAX East, I would like to highlight my favorite part. There is nothing better that being surrounded by people who love the same thing you do.
Seeing people dressed up as their favorite video game characters or wearing gaming t-shirts just warmed my heart. Everywhere you looked there was someone playing a DS or a PSP. People were walking around with signs stating that they were willing to trade Pokemon. I was stopped by many a person looking to connect Pokewalkers.
I didn’t have be ashamed when breaking out my DS to play some Pokemon while waiting for the next panel. I wasn’t wary to make conversation with the people next to me. They were just as bored and happy to chat it up about how excited they are for the new games being showcased.
Sadly the weekend did come to an end, and we must all go back to our “real” lives. It was an unforgettable experience that I would do again in a heartbeat.
~~~Stay tuned the rest of this week for more PAX East recap!~~~
