Do the Modern Warfare 3 chicken dance

I don't know why, but this video by YouTuber projectrooster makes me die laughing. It might have something to do with the song just being perfect for the little chicken dance. DO THE CHICKEN DANCE! [Thanks, Scott!]

The Modern Warfare 3 launch trailer is here
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Just like with Battlefield 3, the Modern Warfare 3 launch trailer has arrived. While many of you are going to argue over which game is better, I'm just going to sit back and smile. Why? Because I'm going to be playing the hell out of both the major first-person shooters and enjoy every second of them.

As for this trailer, we get to see a lot more locations in the single-player campaign we'll be going to as we hunt down Makarov. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 hits November 8 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

UK Readers: Will you be trading in Battlefield 3 on the troll deal, keeping both, or just saving yourself for MW3?

New mode and custom game types come to Modern Warfare 3 photo
New mode and custom game types come to Modern Warfare 3
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

One of the new reveals at Call of Duty: XP is the new "Kill Confirmed" mode. This game type plays out like a regular team deathmatch except now when a player is killed, they drop dog tags. Players then need to collect the dog tag over a player's corpse in order to score a point. If a teammate is downed, the ally team member can collect the dog tag from their teammate and deny the enemy team the score.

It's a pretty fun game mode from the few matches I played. It's a nice cross between deathmatch and capture the flag. I also like how it's designed to keep the players moving. You can't just hide and kill here. 

Additionally, players can now create user-generated game modes. I didn't get a chance to mess with this just yet, but it sounds like you can do whatever the hell you want as far as the game modes goes. You can also sync your custom game type to Call of Duty Elite, where friends can rate and download your creations to try out themselves.

One last new mode that was announced is called "Team Defender." Not sure exactly what that is, but I'll see if it's available to play today. No final count for modes yet either; do know that there are 16 maps on the disc at launch.

Modern Warfare 3 introduces a whole new Killstreak system photo
Modern Warfare 3 introduces a whole new Killstreak system
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much of a change in Modern Warfare 3 from Modern Warfare 2 going into Call of Duty XP. Needless to say, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games blew my mind after all the bombshell changes going into Modern Warfare 3. The biggest change being the new Killstreak system.

Strike Packages, as they are now called, will come in three flavors and are designed for three type of core play styles. Assault is what you remember Killstreaks to be, Support is designed to help aid your team, and Specialist is every Perk you can get. Seriously.
