Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be ridiculous, hit November 8

See if you can spot how many things don't go boom in Activision's apocalyptic debut trailer for the game

To paraphrase, it doesn't take the most powerful nations on earth to create the next global conflict — nope, just some skyscrapers-go-boom-now developers, channeling contemporary doomsayers.

Seriously though, the trailer for Call of Duty: MW3 looks less like a series of modern conflicts than an epic disaster flick just shy of something involving planet-devouring asteroids, Bruce Willis, and a Moonraker-style outer-space jaunt.

New York, London, Paris, Berlin — they're all here and thoroughly savaged by the development team's art and FX departments.

Things of interest in the trailer: Clip-tossing — just dramatic license, or will you be able to beg ammo from others? Subs? Speedboats? Underwater missions? Gatling-gunning in an AC-130 gunship? Some new "roll and toss a car just by pushing it" who-cares-about-physics feature?

Look for it November 8th, developed jointly by Activision rookie Sledgehammer and series doyen Infinity Ward. Or just wait a few weeks for a bazillion E3 2011 hands-on previews.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
