It’s Just A Game

Did a piece on Modern Warfare 2’s “No Russian,” but it was painful. Just coming out of writer’s block and all.

On November 11th, 2009, there was a tremor in the force like few others.

In short, Modern Warfare 2 succeeded so thoroughly that it broke records few had even considered, let alone thought possible; and deservedly so—as our review affirms, Modern Warfare 2 is an engrossing experience of epic proportions.

And heeeeeere’s Gameonn
