    Yeah, the 1080p trailer is impressive.

    IN GAME FOOTAGE
    are the three best words that can be said to me when showing a trailer.

    Never played a MW game before, but this looks frickin' sweet! Can't wait to play it :thumbup: Any idea on a release date?

    This sounds awesome. I loved playing MW2 and MW2:Mercs when I was a kid, I bought MW4 and some expansion packs a year ago but I was disappointed with the gameplay and graphics, plus there were some technical issues with the game or my PC that ruined the experience.

    I hope this is as kickass as it seems!!!

    Here's the link to the IGN vid and article again:

    I haven't been this excited about a video game in years!

    just watched the trailer...doesn't look that good. combat looks slow/ almost turn based. fire, dodge behind building, wait for cooldown, fire again...lame

    Never played MechWarrior then?

    I used to get semi's over the MW2 intro... used to play it to my friends back in the day cos we were like the only people on the street with a computer.

    It looks awesome and I can't wait. But do any of you keyboard warriors honestly think you could have smoothly maneuvered around buildings like in the trailer with MW2 controls? I don't think so. I really want it to stay realistic but I can't see accurate maneuvering like that without W,A,S,D style controls which will then turn it into any old FPS. Need neural interfaces to do things right!!!

    If we ever needed confirmation that your opinion is worth less than an anaemic, half-strangled, fungus-ridden, bottom of the gene pool swimming, skunk road kill felching muppet, we've got it now.
