Tighten your damn suppressor before you rock and roll.
He does a pretty good job of suppressing his embarrassment in video #1:
Video #2 though… “Stay clear guys, this is going to be awesome”. Everything is going well…. OH Wait jiggly suppressor! For the love of god… *JAM* *rack* *Bam bam bam bam* *JAM* (Repeat 9x). Embarassing! Now the classic “Bad ammo” cover-up. It’s Murphy’s law that if there are cameras and a group of people watching you this is exactly what happens.
The idea of somone caring about entering this “virtual” shooting promotion is funny. I’m looking forward to seeing the aftermath though. You can check out the promotion page over at shootmytruck.com. I’m not a fan of any contest (like this one) that requires you to install an “app” that spys on your twitter or facebook account.
I recall playing the original Twisted Metal back in the 90s. I remember it being fun at the time because you could beat the living crap out of the vehicles. Confusingly enough this new game is called Twisted Metal as well.
Pretty huge news… I’m not sure I really grasp the reason for the changeover though. There is definitely a huge savings in weight… but that is definitely at the expense of magazine capacity. I wonder how soldiers will feel about this? I understand that not ALL of the SAWs are being replaced, but for the ones that are, it seems like 30 rounds in a mag would not go over well for a SAW gunner used to having a 200 round drum.
