    But even if it were a WW1-style bayonet charge, I wouldn't be surprised. Japan isn't exactly known for modernity in battlefield tactics throughout history.

    Well, I can accept Garand and BAR using different ammo, so I can accept banzai charge with bayonets.

    Man I don't know what is fucking wrong with Gametrailers but I can never get the goddamn videos to play. In Flash it just says "Loading your video" then goes off and beats off to horseporn, WMV just laughs at me and Quicktime crashes outright.

    I can't even get this shit to run with IEtab anymore. Fuck Gametrailers.

    Use DownloadHelper for Firefox to download embedded video files to your HDD in a permanent form. FLVs should be playable if you've got ffdshow (or codec pack based on it like CCCP) on hand.

    Also if you're using Filterset.G with Adblock then stop, that whitewash list hasn't been updated in eons and causes issues with many sites.

    I don't use Adblock at all (I'm oldschool and use HOSTS), and I don't want to have to download a video just to watch it. Gametrailers is just broken.

    Yeah, looks like COD2/4 with an irritating snowmobile bit tacked on.

    The little glimpses of plot/scripted scenes that are in that are totally incoherent.

    Gee, it's almost like it was a trailer. (Went and looked at it on the fucking game's website.)

    I was watching the Orlando/Cleveland game last night. I forgot that they were debuting the trailer on the game on the 24th. Well, I caught it live on TV last night...about 70 freaking times. Meh, looks decent, but I am still not slobbering over it.

    Incoherent?

    The trailer practically TELLS you what the plot is. I will admit that the biggest problem with trailers for COD, though, is knowing what's a part of the gameplay and what's just "you stand there and watch while our AI does scripted stuff".

    The new trailer looks great IMO & hope all this stuff is in there & not just the movie. That last map looks like a blast to play by the way & that's one wild ride at the end...lol

    Youtube MW2 HD trailer link - click on HD & will play in 720p.

    IMO, Marketing wise they are doing a very good job promoting it & think other game companies are not going to want to release around 11/10 - as I would expect the hype for it will equal the sales out of the chute - which will rain on their parade if they try to do so then.

    Funny how you can know it's going to be irritating based on about 5 seconds worth of footage.

    I actually think this looks pretty badass right now. COD4 was the first game I've played that really did a Tom Clancy-style setting right, and this looks to be more of that goodness.

    Vehicle sections in FPS titles that aren't complete shit:

    Half-Life 2
    Quake Wars
    Far Cry (well, it didn't make the game any worse)
    Red Orchestra
    Operation Flashpoint

    etc.

    Ok, the tanks in Operation Flashpoint were ok, if pathetic compared to what they could be. You've got me there.

    The vehicle aspect of every title you listed there was the weakest part of the game. Especially Half-Life 2, ugh.

    HL2's vehicle sections dragged on sometimes but you can't tell me the '69 Charger in E2 wasn't awesome.

    Well, I'm not 16 anymore so:

    No it wasn't.

    And even if it was, your passanger sucked all awesomeness out from it.
