Late last week, we learned that scintillatingly explodey Bodycount would launch its campaign against restraint and ammo conservation this August.

I'm going to take the mic here for a moment, readers, and tell you something personally: It has been fascinating to watch the development of Codemasters' FPS Bodycount.
