Megarom held an event recently to celebrate the launch of Call of Duty : Black Ops – the biggest game of the year. Instead of the tired and clichÃ©d cocktail party they instead invited press and retail to a shooting range to fire off some of the real-life weapons found in the blockbuster first-person shooter.
Scheduling conflicts ensured I was unable to attend (well, I say scheduling conflicts, but really, guns scare the hell out of me and I didn’t want to wet myself in front of my peers. Again), but thanks to to this delightfully edited video, I can experience it all as if I was actually there!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to change my underwear.
Really though, I’m sad I missed it – it looks like it was insanely fun.

At least you got invited. Some well-known members of the press didn’t even get an invite. Thanks, Megarom :angry:

@Raymond as I explained to many press there was very limited space, and I couldn’t invite everyone. Who are you exactly, I’d hate for you to feel you were neglected. maybe send me an e-mail so we can chat.

No worries. I’m in Cape Town anyways, but the option to go would have been nice. Just heard about the launch on the day 🙁
