Anticipation rises for Black Ops, the next game in the billion-dollar Call of Duty series, ahead of its November release: the top ten videos for the week ending August 18 feature three focusing on the game's multiplayer and its most expensive retail edition ($149).
That 'Prestige Edition' comes with a remote-controlled buggy that carries an on-board video camera and microphone, based on one of the game's new tools. The equivalent top tier package for 2009's Modern Warfare 2 came with a pair of working night-vision goggles.
Film student Freddie Wong has established himself as an ever-present in these charts, and this time uses live action video and clever post-processing effects to make a real-life version of classic light-gun series Time Crisis.
An appropriate choice, given that Time Crisis 4 will become one of the PlayStation 3's first motion controlled titles when PlayStation Move hits in September - but Freddie also manages to team up with Andy Whitfield from TV's Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
As well as the latest and greatest StarCraft II match replay, there's an office prank by the lads and lasses at Sega of America doing the rounds. Now pulled, part of it has been re-uploaded by other YouTube users under the same title - for now, at least - and there are a few previous pranks still up at YouTube.com/user/SegaAmerica.
Also worthy of attention are a literal musical interpretation of the Halo Reach trailer, and a Team Fortress 2 player goes on a foul mouthed (if not unintentionally hilarious) tirade as viewers are invited to guess how many expletives will be used over the course of the 10 minute edit.
