I actually listened to a Major Nelson podcast today. Actually, a small part of one. It was the part where Major Nelson talks to FourZeroTwo from Infinity Ward (a.k.a. Robert Bowling). I learned even more about the five maps in the map pack. That three of them were brand new maps, and that two were maps from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. (Those are Crash and Overgrown.) The new maps are “Bailout, a multi-level apartment complex; Storm, an open industrial park littered with heavy machinery; Salvage, a snowy junkyard fortified by stacked debris and crushed cars.”
I’ve been getting a lot of enjoyment out of MW2 lately. Last night, as on many other nights this past week, I spent a good amount of time capturing A, B, and/or C.
The new Stimulus Package DLC from Infinity Ward will be released at the end of the month for the 360, and sometime later for the PS3 and PC. I was fully planning to buy the DLC, but now I’m not so sure. Why? Because of one more thing I learned from the podcast. It’s priced at 1200 Microsoft points, which is equivalent to $15! That’s a quarter of the price of the full game, for a map pack! Holy crap! I’m gonna have to think about whether selling my liver to buy this map pack is really worth it. I’d really have to cut down on the whole eating thing.
