This actually might be "your dad's" Japanese TRPG, and for those with a hankering for it, that can be a very good thing.

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

DAILY MANIFESTO

WW3 Absurdity: Explosive Dogs, Riot Shield Squads, MW3

Posted on Tuesday, August 9 @ 12:29:13 Eastern by
Today's new Modern Warfare 3 trailer from Activision, Infinity Ward, and Sledgehammer Games has me scratching my head. Let's take a look at some new details confirmed by the latest Spec Ops Survival Mode trailer:

First up, we've got some exploding dogs. Exploding... Dogs.... What kind of hell is this? Summoning attack dogs in the middle of multiplayer wasn't enough. Modern Warfare 3 has gone and strapped plastic explosives to the poor creatures. If PETA doesn't get all over this, Cooking Mama will be pissed.

Modern Warfare 3's Horde-inspired Spec Ops mode will also allow you to call in a team of elite, Delta Force operatives. Just when you thought you had your backs in the corner and there was no way out, you can call in the US military for assistance to the tune of only $3000. Riot Shields are more expensive to produce, but even those expendable human lives will run you the low, low price of $5000. Pffffftttttt... and the government expects us to believe that the war is costing billions of dollars a month?!

An automatic grenade launcher? I may not be Major General Sargeant danielrbischoff (oh wait I am), but I've never heard of such a weapon. Let's just hope it has the devastating force you'll need when repeatedly firing grenades at a Juggernaut's nuts.

Another weapon I didn't know existed, but now I do and I totally want one give it to me-- the FMG9 folds out at the end of the Spec Ops survival trailer in time to see fourzerotwo eat the violent end of an AC-130 round.

Armor will be appearing in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Spec Ops mode, but it isn't yet known if the extra padding will make it's way into the competitive multiplayer.

My favorite multiplayer weapon, the Riot Shield, will also be returning to Modern Warfare 3.

At least in MW3's Spec Ops mode, you'll be able to signal an AC-130 to strike a specific landmark with this cloud of purple smoke. Will different colors of smoke refer to different types of orbital attacks?

What other absurdity will Modern Warfare 3 pack in the lead up to it's showdown with Battlefield 3? Look below to see the complete Spec Ops Survival trailer:
