    Battle: Los Angeles Trailer

    Hollywood doesnt hire em. They ask/pay the US Government to give them a few pilots and their choppers for stock footage and to give them some extras. The Marines dont get paid jack shit so it's cheaper and easier than CGIing it in there and hiring a bunch of extras.

    I will go see that and laugh.

    I can agree with that sentiment; it kinda implies that all the other countries sucks compared to the US of A.

    But it's not totally destroyed like LA and NYC always seem to be.---------- Post added at 08:29 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:16 AM ---------- I have faith that the movie will be worth seeing for the special effects, but then again so was Waterworld and that didn't keep that movie from sucking. I know this is isn't the same dude who directed ID4, but that doesn't mean he's from the same school of thought which is you take a box office success (Not a critically acclaimed movie) and you copy it and copy it to make money. Also just because the military lends a hand doesn't mean the storyline is going to be top notch it just means they want to use this film to help with recruiting for the USMC, because in their minds when some 18 year old sees this on a friday he's going to think "Wow if I join the Marines I can fight Aliens? HELL YEAH!!" And there are stupid kids out there who will think that and enlist. I know kids who enlisted in the USMC thinking they'd get to fight some big ass lava monster with a USMC Conan sword so it wouldn't surprise me if they thought they'd fight Aliens too.

    There's a pill for that; it's called Haldol. For everything else there's Alstate.

    Don't count on it being from just the POV of the grunts. Hollywood always find a way to add atleast one chick and one kid who's lines are "AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" Sorry for being "that guy" but when I see a movie like that I hope for the best and expect the worst. I mean for one they used LA which is so over done. I mean how many times does LA and NYC have to be destroyed in movies these days? Why for once can't it be someplace like Boston, Atlanta, or San Deigo? I get tired of seeing the same cities being pounded into dust. You'd think people in LA would say "Hey Las Vegas is ripe for destruction!!" You'd think people in NYC would say "Blow up Boston for a change!! I wanna watch Fenway Park burn instead of the Chrysler Building for once." If you look at the cast it's not just military but civvies too which to me isn't totally necessary unless they're bit parts, but how much you wanna bet they're the "screamers". Then you see all the CGI effects which just reek of a all flash and no substance film. But then again I could be wrong....but not likely considering Hollywoods habit of taking one movie and churning out more of the same movie pretty much, but just a different title and cast. This movie to me is just Independence Day without the God Awful lines, the bad inspiring speeches, and the Brits stuck in the Sinai looking like a bunch of retards in a uniform saying "The Americans are planning a counter offensive!!! We're Saved!!!"

    I personally never was much for the COD MP scene because I'm a diehard coop player, but I agree with you that the whole CP thing does scream exploitation, especially when you can put your CP points on the betting table with a hacker and lose your hard earned CP points.I watched a couple walkthrough videos and the campaign does look awesome. I happy to see Raznov making a comeback; he IMO made COD WaW a game worth playing.

    Reference Link If this offends any Germans here then that's on you, but those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. I can understand that the time period of 1934-1945 is a time period you much rather move on from, but censoring video games because of reference's to the horrors committed by German during WW2 is taking is about 10 steps too far and it only keeps reminding people of what the Germans did during WW2. I understand that not all Germans feel this way and a few may even agree with me and if that's so then maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I do not hold the sons responsible for the sins of the father, but it's stupid crap like this is why people can't get past what happened nearly 70 years ago and what's in the past needs to stay in the past but at the same time still needs to be remember so it won't happen again. I know the article contains other stuff than just that but I wanted to use this article to show how much PC (Political Correctness) and stupid laws that some countries have are destroying this world. In ending this rant I want to say that I do not intend this to be a slug fest or come off as anti-German; I love Germans I even have some German ancestors. What I intended to do here is bring awareness to the fact that no country should hide from their past, our history is what makes us who we are and how we learn from our mistakes is how we make sure they ever happen again. I hope people see this for what it is and not breeze through it and think I'm bashing all Germans, but as I said in the beginning if you're offended then that's on you, not me.

    Skyline Sci Fi Film

    It looks to be one of those all flash and no substance movies. I personally won't waste 30 bucks to see it at the movies. I may dish out 5 bucks at blockbuster to rent it though.

    No offense taken I just think that with so little reference material to go on it would be best to stick with what we know and not what we speculate, but good luck.

  17. I'm sorry I was starving and BBQ hamster sounded pretty good.Anyways lemme get to my question. I'm all for outting out mod thieves in their various forms, but does outting a mod thief have to turn into a soap opera? I noticed that that's an old trend that's somehow yet again raised it's ugly head on the forums and I personally prefer not to read through people's dirty laundry to find actual updates on a mod.

    @Fox I would suggest you get rid of the fatigues and go with local garb or long sleeve t-shirts with jeans intermixed with tactical vests. Granted there's not much to go on, but I'm just throwing it out there.

    New Medal of Honor game trailer

    I personally think for 60 bucks they could have given you either a longer campaign or multiple campaigns since there are a lot of people out who are like me and wont even touch the MP side of the game.. I mean hell MW1 and 2 had a longer campaign than MoH does but the campaign despite it be as short as it is is a whole lot more fun to play than any CoD campaign.
