Post So...What are YOU doing first?

Personally, going back on all the previous CoD games, I have been way too hyped for the game, always thinking OMG this is gonna be the best game ever!

Anyway thats a debate I'm not getting into, there's enough fanboy posts on here already about what game is better blah blah blah... What I want to know is what's your play style on a big release such as this?

In the past I have always tended to do a Campaign playthrough straight away on Normal / Hardened to get a feel for the game overal, get to know the maps in general etc etc. Once done its off to MP with friends to start the long road ahead to get to 10th Prestige or whatever the highest Prestige is this year.

I guess then I mix it up between running back through the campaign on Veteran for the cheevos and also Spec Ops etc etc.

But with all the new game modes added this year I wonder if that will influence anyone's decision on what order the explore the entire game?

Roll on Release date though!

I play MP first cause that's what I play the most. It helps me get back into playing online. I'll also play MW2 a lot before MW3 finally comes out. After I rank up in MP I'll then play the campaign on normal once and then go for veteran.

I'll play through the campaign and then either jump into MP or Spec Ops with my friends.

Campaign first, because I think it helps in getting a feel for the different guns and because there will probably be server issues the first few days.

Same as every Call of Duty Game: Get it at midnight, be home by 12:30, install to HDD (takes about -5 minutes) and then load up single player. I will beat it that night and then enjoy some multiplayer and tanking up until I decide to play Survivor or Spec Ops.

Single player on vetaran. Usually try and get that out of the way so i can focus all attention to the Mp, and not have to worry about Veteran. Did the same for mw2, cod4, blacks ops, and..world..at..war..lol

Play single player through, then go back to get any remaining achievements, play survivor/spec-ops/splitscreen, then go through veteran when I feel like it, and occasionally play multiplayer if I get bored.

In a rare-form for me.. I think I will be playing MP upon release for the first time ever! Something about this game just screams "PLAY ONLINE" before anything else to me!

Here's my plan of action:
  1. Campaign on Veteran, probably will take 1-2 days.
  2. Campaign again on Recruit to miss what I didn't get the first time through.
  3. Spec-Ops solo, until I need help.
  4. Finish Spec-Ops and any other small achievements.
  5. Get all the intel as my last two for the 1K.
  6. Play MP.

My clan and I are going to hop on MP private matches for a few hours, to get the feel of the maps, weapons and what not, then go into MP knowing the maps a bit and destroy all the campers. Thats day 1.

Day 2, I'll be kicking the family out of the living room for a few hours why I dive into the campaign. I'm really hooked into the story...Russia taking over and starting a war on our soil?? Awesome!

I'm just gonna run through the campaign. I don't plan on playing any multiplayer unless there's achievements for it.
