    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Infamy Trailer


    First things first, watch the above trailer in HD.

    Alright, in case you missed it, here's the latest official trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 video game from Infinity Ward. It seems that raining death and destruction upon United States cities is still somewhat of a taboo subject in certain areas, as evidenced by the two articles below. Personally I think the entire Western Hemisphere is vastly underutilized as a setting for games, and I'd much rather see future games in familiar settings (New York, Washington, San Francisco, etc) or nearby exotic locales (Cuba, Panama, Venezuela, Brazil, etc) as compared to the standard trifecta of Europe, Africa and Asia.

    Also, overall the trailer looks great, watch it again (in HD) already!

    So maybe being able to blow up DC is a bit over the top...ermm.. wait a sec... /me reads FAQ... Nothing here says you blow up DC. Hmm.

    Well, was Independence Day over the top for blowing up DC or Die Harder over the top for causing chaos in DC? Ohh wait... those movies depicted fictional events that never happened.... ummm... but...

    The authors site games where DC is in ruins in the future and say it's OK since the future hasn't happened yet... but... erm... well neither has MW2's events ever happened.

    So, playing a game that depicts the hero trying to stop a terrorist plot that ultimately succeeds is bad form but watching a hero do the same is fine? I fail to see what perspective they are coming from, other than "make an absurd statement and people will read."

    Main station: Intel i7-920 2.66GHz@3.2GHz, 12GB Corsair Vengence DDR3, Gigabyte EX58-UD3R, Barracuda 3x1TGB, Antec 750W PSU, 2x eVGA 460-GTX 1GB SLI, Thermaltake V1-AX, Cooler Master CM Storm

    Peripherals: 2x Samsung 25" WS LED, Cooler Master Sirus Headset, Logitech G110, Saitek X52 Hotas, Saitek Pro Rudders, 2x Thrustmaster F16 MFD, Track IR3, Nostromo n52, Logitech G700, Wacom Intuos3 Tablet (6x8)

    OS: Debian, Win7 Ult.

    Word Gargs... :yeahthat:

    The hidden accusation in this thing pisses me off though... That we're a callous nation ignorant to the suffering of others in the world, particularly in places we're fighting...
    I know many of those soulless freaks in our government are; but it's unfair to lump all the good noble people from the rest of America in with them...
