Naw, that's just my typing without thinking. They used to "translate" things into British English back in the 80s or so when GI Joe became "Action Force" ("In-tah-NASH-an-al Heroes!") over here, but that stopped slowly when they realised we didn't care either way. T2 was always "Judgment Day," it was always Pearl Harbor and the MoH games have always been Medal of Honor.

Edit: Though my copy of Tora! Tora! Tora! is subtitled "The attack on Pearl Harbour," so I guess they didn't always bother with the US naming conventions for places either.

My buddy and I are still waiting for the prices to drop on Army of Two: Devil's Cartel and Gow: Judgment, so I decided to check XBox Live activity just to see how popular they are.

The short answer is, they're not, but the results are surprising.

- Four COD titles in the top twelve, in order of release. Number 12 is MW2, which came out 2009.

- I didn't think Halo 4 would be as low as it is. I'm sure it'll be back up once Spartan Ops is back on. Halo: Reach is still number 14.

- The number two title is Minecraft?

- Gears of War 3, which came out in 2011, is sixteen. Gears of War: Judgment, which came out in March, is out of the top twenty. Ouch.

- GTA IV, which came out in 2008, is still number nine. Wow.

I think I'm most surprised at four CoD games beating Borderlands 2.

Especially one from 2009.

Less than a year ago, there were FIVE COD titles on the list.

(And GTA IV actually managed to go UP one place in ten months. Now I have to try the multiplayer, it must be incredible.)

It appears that none of these pages are complete. If they are not completed by 1/28/14, I don't think it'd be possible to ever complete them.

New promos from the Robocop remake.

If that's a real gun in there, they hid it really well. Maybe a USP?

There's bigger multi-angle images on the OCP promotional site.

It's also kind of funny that they say the ED-209 is programmed with 1,500 different languages. Either that's function bloat or the UN has branched out into organised crime.

Edit: The 360 rotation image shows it has an ejection port on the right but the page images don't, either the right side image is flipped and the logo flipped again, or the on-page images are of a non-firing prop.

I thought since it implied there would be a huge natural disaster, they'd move it back to wherever it was before.

I only played it for the campaign anyway, and I'm guessing there won't be one if it's free-to-play.
