    Well, that's great! BUT the updates have been a real drag, and I swear I'm missing a few files now because MW3 worked fine and dandy when I first played it (which was 24hrs ago), came home, update… But something was missing. Now there's another update.
    I really want to play MW3, but these blasted updates are preventing me from doing so. The last update took 4hrs to install.
