Sure... because Microsoft have no financial interest in the sale of Microsoft Windows PCs.

The Blasphemy in Guild Wars: Nightfall, and his associated Grand Court of Sebelkeh mission.

Doesn't bother me:
 
Assault - don't play that often
Medic - happy with unscoped PKM (mainly play Engineer/Sniper anyway)
Engineer - happy with AKS74 / UMP SA
Sniper - have all unlocks, and in any event hate anything !SV98
 
I already play against lots of people with superior unlocks to me: it isn't really a problem as (unlike BF2) the unlockable weapons aren't unambiguously better than the defaults, only different.

I realise I'm in the small minority, but I just don't like the D&D/Neverwinter Nights-type combat system used in the KOTOR series. Plus the fact that this is just a CGI cutscene which tells us absolutely nothing about the quality of the game.

'Harry Potter Title TBA' - wouldn't be a tie-in to the film coming out in Q4 by any chance?

This has a faint whiff of flogging a dead horse.

Actually the first modern setting game with (notable) online play was Rogue Spear (1999). Also, Battlefield 2 allowed customisable kit loadouts. Sure, it restricted you by category but then so does MW2.

It can't stop the nuke after it has been fired, however it can stop someone from firing a nuke (ie if you EMP before they start the nuke countdown). The EMP stops all killstreaks from being called in while the EMP is active.
 
As far as the OT is concerned, if this does become widespread then IW will just take it out and replace it with something that doesn't spoil the game for everyone else.
