Sand In Your Pants: The Itchy New Spec Ops Trailer

Just like that bit in Apocalypse Of Darkness
Spec Ops: The Line is on a mission to prove it’s not just the sand that’s gritty with this new “Community Gameplay Trailer”. Whoever the Spec Ops community is, they’re sick puppies, as this is nothing but a catalogue of human misery: Argos filled with skulls, a Littlewoods of pain, an Innovations dedicated exclusively to a helmet that stops brain matter from staining your nice rug. Bad things might go down in the desert, but you won’t have to worry about worming bits of lobe out your finest shag with the Brain Buster! Act now and get Butt Blaster, the amazing all-in-one rifle butt cleaner and clockwork radio.

Want to see Dubai if it was swallowed by the desert, leaving the people cut off from society and morals? No? Well tough.

Spec Ops: The Line is out on both the 26th and 29th of June. How is that possible? Why, only with our patented Time Slicer…

  2. Njordsk says:

    lacks of scratchy though

    No wub wub? I am disappoint.

  4. TheWhippetLord says:

    A spec op must be corrective eye surgery, yes? Those gentlemen don’t look like opticians.

    Also “Littlewoods of pain” would be a great record title.

    Please don’t chicken out on the ending, please don’t chicken out on the ending…

    This looks like it could be a great gut-punch of a game, even if I do have reservations about the gameplay (helicopter turret section anyone?), but they need to completely tear down everyone, un-glorify warfare and make it properly depressing. Like that article in the Sunday Papers a while back by that PMC guy.

    • DK says:

      They’ll chicken out. Kane and Lynch 1 and 2 have shown conclusively that the games industry is not ready for stories that aren’t all about heroic people saving the world.

  8. ZIGS says:

    This is the most Unreal Engine 3-looking game I’ve ever seen (not a compliment)

  9. Tams80 says:

    Sand in your sandwich.

  10. Miltrivd says:

    I’m hoping for a good story and character development, along with the gameplay. The story background seems to aim for moral discussion and self-questioning and at least a hint to the latest US wars with the “you will face an enemy you were never trained to fight” in their website.

    If it’s end up another as another pseudo-story that ends up putting “US values” as saviors of the universe I wouldn’t be surprised tho.

  11. Mad Hamish says:

    Was he killing some US soldier in that trailer? That’s an interesting twist I guess. Makes a change from the usual women and children.

  12. kud13 says:

    Trailer is confusing. looks like a bunch of US soldiers killing a bunch of crasy US soldiers, who got there first, got crazy, and are now killing everyone.

    well, at lest it’s not zombies….

  13. Shooop says:

    Anyone who wanted Gears of War 2 and 3 on PC are going to be happy I guess.

  14. dangermouse76 says:

    The FPS jumped the shark along time ago this is late to the party.

  15. DocSeuss says:

    It looks cheap.

    I like what they’ve been saying about it, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t shake the feeling that it will be cheap in a non-STALKERY way. I have these images of mouse lag and invisible walls and the inability to jump in my head. :(

    Thats all well and good, but what kind of restaurants has post apocalyptic Dubai got?
