Modern Warfare 2
I often shy away from doing strips about specific games, as they tend to limit the audience, but I figured since over TEN MILLION PEOPLE have played Call of Duty 4 it'd be safe.
No other title has consistently consumed my game time as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I'll likely surpass 100,000 online kills before I finally shelve it when the sequel hits this fall. One hundred thousand. The number staggers me. I'm also currently seventy or so headshots with the semi-automatic shotgun away from completing every single challenge in the game.
And I'll be doing it all over again when Modern Warfare 2 hits. I've largely been trying to avoid any coverage of it, so as to go into it as fresh as possible, but I couldn't resist checking out their E3 presentation. Before today's strip gets entirely misunderstood, the snowmobiles are NOT available in the multiplayer competitive modes. Pity.
And a note to Infinity Ward: I don't care how much "baller cred" it gives the character, there's no way a self-respecting professional soldier, a special operator no less, would EVER turn his sidearm and fire it sideways, "gangsta" style. He'd just as soon turn it on his own face.

To answer Wedge's question, yes, I am excited about Modern Warfare 2.
Also, Infinity Ward, could you please be more specific about what you meant by "tweaking Martyrdom"? It is by far my least favorite perk. I don't believe a player should be rewarded for dying. I also don't believe that a player should be forced to clear an area, often into the line of fire of an enemy, just because they happened to kill an enemy with Martyrdom.
