Modern Warfare 2 Digital Distribution Backlash

Direct2Drive has word they will not carry Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 due to its use of the competing Steam service. There's a statement about this on Gamasutra where Direct2Drive says: "We donít believe games should force the user to install a Trojan Horse," referring to Steam. Voodoo Extreme also notes that online retailers GamersGate and Impulse are following suit, with Impulse saying: "The most obvious issue is the forced inclusion of a competitor's store that blocks us from carrying the game."

If you had bad performance with Resistance 2 then you definitely need to take your time and tweak it since that is a game that works quite well with the system.

If the game seemed to be any good, I would, but honestly of what I played the game didn't catch my interest at all and seemed to be your typical console shooter. Killzone 2 however I'll end up picking up at some point, when I find a deal for $30 or less, and have time to play it...whereas I wasnt going to bother with it at all with gamepad as a control device.

So really, just like PC shooters...if the mouse control doesn't feel right (sluggish or choppy), I won't play it.
