Sure, we brought you some screenshots before, but screenshots simply do not convey the true and explodey joy of Worms. Lucky for us all, GameTrailers has posted some squirmy and destructive video of the game in action. Those of you who have been worried by the simplified "pick-up-and-play" descrip...
