Modern Warfare 2 – What happened at the London launch event

1 – We went into a cinema on Leicester Square. The event was attended by Goldie and some other people. But mainly Goldie. We were shown the game on the huge screen, had an IW animator chat about injecting “heroin” into multiplayer and got given a goodie bag with a notepad in it. It was more fun than it sounds.

2 – We went and had some food and a bit of a drink.

3 – We turned up at the party. Men everywhere dressed in camo gear. Lots of “celebs,” including half of this, this man and Dizzee Rascal, who played for 20 minutes at midnight. I talked 15 tons of crap, and now sound as though I’ve been eating gravel.

4 – Got the game, got back on a train, went home.

5 – That’s it. Go and buy it. Here’s why.
