still not sure what all the hubbub, brouhaha and sometimes broubub surrounding Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4 is about, you may just get a chance to play the game's single-player campaign before the week is out. If you're over the age of 17 and generally enjoy shooting things from a first-person perspective, Activision and Gamestop cordially invite you to waltz into a participating store on Wednesday, October 17th, give the Xbox 360 version of the World War Now epic a bash and promptly fall into their carefully constructed pre-order trap. The bait is set at 9PM.
After the break you'll find a list of stores offering the playable taster -- those not on the list are only good for selling you the game when it releases on November 5th. Additionally, you can visit Gamestop's website and enter your contact details so that they may kindly draft you into a mailing list send you a "reminder" for an event that's two days away.
