    The Battle of the Threes

    2011 seems to be a year for third installments. Gears of War and Saintís Row come to mind. But the focus today is the third installment in two of the premiere first person shooter franchises, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Battlefield. I wanted to give Modern Warfare 3 a similar

    Released only a handful of weeks apart, Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 occupy essentially the same territory but are, in actuality, worlds apart in spite of similar ...
