Nelly Furtado is another in a long line of musicians that have stepped up to record a song in Simlish. In this case it's Furtado's "Manos Al Aire," which is featured in the latest trailer for the game, watchable above.

Now that "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" is out and about, you may be curious to know what's next for the game's developer, Infinity Ward. Well, we visited their California-based studios to find out. Check out the interview segment above, in which Robert Bowling talks about what sort of DLC plans are in store. Seems that, apart from the two announced DLC packs, the developer will be listening to the fans to find out what they want next. New Spec Ops missions are definitely not out of the question.

If you're hoping for a website that'll share all your "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" glories, akin to Bungie's "Halo" stat-tracking site, Bungie.net, you're fresh out of luck for launch. We spoke to Infinity Ward about the potential for a similar, community-based site for "Modern Warfare 2," which they didn't quite rule out, but admitted that it's not something that'll be built into the launch. Check out the video interview with Robert Bowling up top.

Quake iPhone

In an interview with "DOOM" creator and id Software Technical Director John Carmack, he revealed that while he plans on releasing "Quake" for the iPhone, Apple's already done most of the work.

"Work will start on 'Quake Classic'...Apple has an internal version that they ported themselves for development and benchmark testing. So I'll probably get them to spit up what they actually did as a baseline for us. At one point somebody actually submitted it to the App Store, a version that they had made, and we had to have that pulled down."

One of the enemies you'll face in "Modern Warfare 2"'s Spec-Ops mode is aptly named The Juggernaut. Basically imagine a huge, hulking dude in a bomb defusal suit who will march at you until you manage to take him down with explosives and .50 caliber rounds. It's the equivalent of a boss character in Spec-Ops and you really don't want to get on the business end of one of these guys.

The lead character designer for "Modern Warfare 2" discusses the creation of the Juggernaut in the video up top. Enjoy!

The director of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" and the forthcoming "A Christmas Carol" remake is not much of a gamer. Despite the awesome video game based on the "Roger Rabbit" flick, it seems that Robert Zemeckis has never really been very good at video games, despite being very impressed by them:

Modern Warfare 2

Recently we took a tour around the Infinity Ward studios to see the last few bolts being screwed on to "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2." We spoke to a bunch of folks from the team, and I'll be running clips from the interviews right on through to the game's release next Tuesday.

First up we have Joel Emslie, the Lead Character Artist for "Modern Warfare 2," discussing the returning characters. Don't worry, it's pretty spoiler-free, but he does explain why Soap (the returning protagonist from the first game) is now sporting a mohawk. Hmm...I guess he could've had one before and we just didn't know, but this time we get a face full of it. Check out the video below.

Video games bring people together. For example, "Big Buck Safari," which sits in the MTV newsroom, taunting anyone that walks in, challenging them to beat the highest score. Until the other day we hadn't actually had a completed round by a celebrity (with both the Boondock Saints and Tokio Hotel quitting before the final tally). That is until OJ Da Juiceman and Mike Posner, two musicians from different sides of the hip hop world, were in the office for adjacent interviews. Suddenly it was an opportunity to battle for the ages.

Shigeru Miyamoto

Shigeru Miyamoto has made some pretty incredible video game experiences, many of which will go down as the best video games of all time. But that doesn't mean he hasn't been disappointed with the reaction to some of his games. In a recent interview, I asked the Mario creator if there were any titles which didn't quite have the public support that he would've expected at their release:

Jay-Z has his name right there on the box of the special "Renegade Edition" of "DJ Hero." It's a pretty big deal for the hottest MC in the biz to associate himself so closely with a video game, but it turns out it's not just to turn a buck. Says Jay-Z:

"I was really a gamer. Ask any of the guys. 'Madden,' all these types of games, I was really like a problem. It was my thing for a while."
