42 would be a bit too old too. He certainly looks like he's 51. He's got adult kids.

Snakes-Eyes is a white guy, and him and Storm Shadow are supposed to be about the same age. Originally, in the comic, they fought in Vietnam in the same LRRP unit as Stalker.

As for your other choices, Terry Crews as Roadblock is excellent. When I saw the Baroness, Sarah Palin popped briefly in my mind, which is not right. If they can combine her looks and Ariana Huffington's voice, we've got a winner. And I can't even think of Shipwreck now without going to Shore Leave from the Venture Brothers. Mark Strong would make a good Zartan as well.

I saw your handle there. Is that an ELO reference?

Yes it is.

Maybe, but I feel it'd be nice to have the option. I've honestly never felt like the "ace" that the games' plots and dialogue made Mobius 1, Blaze, and Cypher out to be because you could be doing something as mundane as turning to the left and you'll hear somebody exclaim "Look at that flying, it's almost not human". It'd be great if I could be doing something like backflipping over the MiG about to light me up when some NPC starts blabbing about my "inhuman" flying.

But that's the thing, it was impossible to hit anything unless you had the super maneuverable missiles. There was an achievement where you had to destroy a ground target with your gun while in that mode, and it took me dozens of tries to get.

He's kinda dorky, don't you think? I always imagined the twins to be a little more suave and sophisticated. Besides, unless he's like Linda Hamilton or Jon Heder and has a twin no one knows about, they'd have to do that Patty Duke thing with him throughout the entire film.

I don't know if you guys have seen this, but it's thirteen minutes of gameplay from MW3.

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3...call-of/714784

In keeping with the finest traditions of the Modern Warfare series, 1) it looks really fun, 2) there are gaping plot holes.

Long story short, you have to fight your way to the NYSE on foot, fighting Russians troops and Hinds along the way, to get to the roof of the NYSE to blow up some antenna/transmitter thingy. Not "collect intel from," or "find," but blow up. Once that's done, they send a Blackhawk to pick you up DIRECTLY from the rooftop. So, instead of just sending in gunships, or even that same Blackhawk to blow up something ON THE ROOF, they make you fight street by street, house by house. (Did I mention it looks really fun? Because it looks really fun.)

Finished up MoH. The Campaign was a lot better than I had thought it would be. The reviews had said that it was a bit glitchy, and I did have to restart one section after not being able to advance due to a glitch. My biggest complaint about the game, however, was having two companies do the campaign and multiplayer. Usually, the campaign is supposed to get you acclimated to multiplayer, but when I played a bit, it was a bit foreign. But generally, a good use of 15 bucks.
