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 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!

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 =(

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.

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.

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?

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? ^^
