That is dedication to a rating. That's one of those properties I would have thought would have gone Mature, but nope its still rated teen.
I can't wait. I love that series.

When I first saw a carpet bomb. (I only did the missions with freebies so I could save up my money for no apparent reason.) So when I got my carpet bomb and saw it I said holy crap!

Video games train us youngens to emulate unhealthy social skills, so expect me to blow up a few buildings with tenuous Russian contacts before my close friends pull me into line XD

And besides the carpet bomb, I did like gunship support. A bunch of boats out at sea will send a rain of explosives to the area. A good way to soften a base up before attack. Will there be napalm strikes?

You're looking at the guy who only calls in supply drops. Of course I did use a bunkerbuster on an unhardened target. That was interesting.

there was also something very similar to gunship support, where constantly circling planes would then pepper the area with machinegun fire.

That was the Allied Air Superiority, support I believe. I only used that when helicopters kept me pinned down.

Just order a demolitions drop :P your friendly local Chinese Oppressors will drop a box full of explosives for you. Failing that, just get a tactical strike.

I'm buying the game in a day or two, just to keep me amused until the sequels out. I think its around the 9th of September...

Mercs 2, Force Unleashed, Fable 2, Fallout 3 (ordered from New Zealand, of course. None of this censored bullcrap for me)

I live in America we hardly ever get anything censored. Heck RE 4 was more censored in Japan than it was in the States.

Japan censors everything, whether its games, porn or Google.

This is the country that sell used panties in vending machines and has three floors of a game store dedicated to porn video games. Only in Japan.

People don't usually play the girl because she the hardest to use. Her ability to blend in faster is usefully but most people like the Swedish guys faster running or the American's extra durability.

I like her though. Her union jack costume is cool.

I just saw the E3 Demo. Showed off the napalm strike and the (omg wait for it) tactical nuke.

There was some weapon that they described in a preview that was a mini-nuke that burrowed underground before exploding.  I'm assuming it's the bunker buster from Mercs 1, just souped up.  "Guaranteed to take care of your gopher problem, or your money back!"  XD  Can't wait.  1 week left for the US.

It looks like they took a more cell-shady look to the game. I think is was to up the graphics without having it pushed to M.
I don't think Lucas Arts (Games whatever George is calling it these days.)
