Today's most indulgent video: 3,000 barrels in Crysis [update]

Want to see 3,000 barrels all tumble down at once? Or be blown away in a vortex? This four-minute video might be just what you're looking for. For some reason, watching the barrel de(con)struction makes us want to upgrade our systems and play Crysis more than any trailer released for the game. It's a testament to the ingenuity of the mod community to pique our interests with simple physics tests and, well, construction of entire buildings using explosive barrels.

Video embedded after the break; stay tuned at the end when they decide to put the barrels to even better use and blow them up.

Update: "What just happened, Neo?"

"A black cat went past us, and then another that looked just like it."

"Uh oh. Deja vu. That means they've changed something in the system."
