Thursday Night Throwdown 6/10: Modern Warfare 2 Resurgence

It's a map pack melee on this week's TNT!

Have you figured out every single sniping spot in the carnival yet? If not, you'd better bone up, because we're going to be taking the new Resurgence map pack for Modern Warfare 2 through its paces on this week's Thursday Night Throwdown!

As the map pack is currently only available on the Xbox 360, and the friends list is currently full up, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and watch us gun down members of the Giant Bomb community in the coldest of cold blood. Or, more accurately, watch us go 2 and 35 in basic TDM while lamely talking about the impact of rifle shots to a target's center mass.

Be sure to be here at 4PM Pacific Daylight Time to experience the magic, either in our live chat room or, if you're on the list, in-game. We'll be inviting waves of players for a full two hours! 
 
[UPDATE] Thanks to all who joined us! If you missed it, or if you'd just like to relive the magic, here's the rerun! Catch it!

I'm just hoping for some PC action soon ;)

I get the feeling this will just be watching one of the GB members die over and over due to their position being revealed all the time on the stream.
 And thus not so good.
 
But alas, that's to be seen!

Edited by MeatSim

I will be watching no way was I gonna pay money for a MW map pack.

Oh Gawd I forgot that Kids Incorporated was a thing.

isn't there like a 10 second delay on the stream? that shouldn't screw em over if they keep moving. i do have a feeling though we'll still be watching them die over and over regardless.

Agreed, either way is bad.
And if we're basing this of that quick look for the last map pack it'll be similar to that. 
This'll make for great watching =(

not just you! It is the right width, but like half tall for me. Same on the KITH vid posted in another article recently.

That video has just ruined all my memories of that song :(

I've been wanting to see just how Carnival plays. It's pretty much the only MW2 map that actually looks really appealing to me.

Posted by Stahlbrand

OOOOH, I at first thought this was the Kidz Bop version of MC5's "Kick Out the Jams (Motherfu#ker)".  
 
Which would be ...surreal, at least.

Posted by Daveyo520

That video got me so pumped!!!

Posted by Atomasist

I'm pumpin' it up right now

Let's keep this party going.

OH MAN IT'S PUMPED UP!
I need to go cool off.

Posted by PirateNeal

Finally made the list, odds are good to have a chance to play with the G-man if they are skipping the ps3 version

I got a feeling that we will barely see any of the new maps if there are full player private games.
 
Hell I don't own any of the map packs.

I sold CoD:MW2, but doesn't the game publicly display the gamertag(s) of the person(s) who don't have the map pack? Don't be surprised to get a kick.

Yeah I guess but what happens if there is a high count of people not having both packs in games?
Posted by DeadFish

It's available on the PC, but you won't find a lot of people playing it there.
 
It's time for a Steam/PC TNT, guys! Please? :) I know you want to stay current so how about a litle Killing Floor or Garry's Mod? ^^

Posted by MrBlowfish

I would love to see a video feed of this where I can actually see what is going on. I know that there are limiting factors, but still... dude can dream right?

Posted by Reverseface

I think the word which discribes what will happen to the GB crew is raped.

Posted by teh_destroyer

Hopefully i can play, once i can get home, either way i want to take a stab at Brad :).

Don't get your hopes up. I doubt we'll even see a PS3 exclusive.
