This is why I love Charlie Brooker

if you're particularly skilful – make their testicles explode like a pair of microwaved eggs. But it's okay. It's the second world war and your targets are the Nazis, so these are Nazi testicles housing billions of Nazi sperm: ovoid-shaped mass-produced bastard factories dangling in a funny pink skin sack with nut hairs all over it. Ha ha. Goolies.

Hopefully for Sniper Elite V3 there'll be an even more comprehensive kill sequence in which, after an even more explicit close-up of the bullet boring a path through some Nazi intestine, the camera hurtles to the other side of the world and shows his sweetheart's expression as she receives a telegram announcing his death. And then it shows his crestfallen kids being told daddy won't be home for Christmas. And then the camera follows them through their entire lives, in real-time, depicting them growing up despondent and angry and unfulfilled, and eventually all killing themselves in atrocious ways on the 50th anniversary of pop's murder. And then the camera whizzes back through time, back to the battlefield, back to the point where you're about to pull the trigger. Just so you can pull it again.

Snipers were unpopular with fellow soldiers during the first world war...It'd be far better if between levels you had to quietly eat lunch in the mess tent alone, ignoring a barrage of whispered insults. Press X to chew. Press Y to swig from your canteen. Press O to stare silently at the table.

Re: This is why I love Charlie Brooker

I agree, totally. Have you read his Dawn of the Dumb book?
If not, pm me your address and I will send it to you (if I still have it on my shelf).
