Black Ops Escalation DLC: Launch day video brings zombies, electrified septuagenarians, annoying voice-overs

So, Call of Duty: Black Ops' Escalation DLC is apparently out today on Xbox Live (still no sign of it in the UK Marketplace on our machine, but we'll continue to believe them for now), and yikes is this new five minute video quite the head-turner. Even to me, who hated Black Ops and didn't even bother playing any of the first set of zombie maps.

This lot though? They let me play as Freddy Krueger, Buffy, Machete and that racist guy from The Walking Dead. I'm all over that. Apart from the racism. They also let me fight an electro-powered zombie version of one of my cinematic heroes while flying through the air on catapults and sailing through the sky on a half-mile zip-line. Basically, this video is relevent to my interests. Oh yeah, and there are some standrad multiplayer maps as well.

Just try to ignore the goddawful Inside Xbox voice-over guy. His really... slow... speech... and... really... weird use of, vocal pauses, is phenomenally, goddamn, annoying.

These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
