In a nutshell: Project Gotham Shooting.

0:00 I'm not usually a shooter fan, but I'm still looking forward to this one because of the good critical reception, not to mention the Sega and Bizarre names behind it.

0:01 A Russian guy runs through a snowy field, away from a shooter in a helicopter. He's Dragov. Now he's inside meeting with The Secretary! Killen is shooting a guy with a shotgun. Renwick is punching a guy out. Seager is wearing riot gear. Adjo is surrounded by people in the African savannah. Kuro is shooting people on the streets of Japan. Finn is getting beat up in a casino's back room. Nemo is hiding in the corner of a dark abandoned room. They're all part of THE CLUB, as the title screen says in bigger letters.

0:03 "Welcome KyleOrl to the club." Thanks, but please, just call me Kyle.

0:04 The options screen lets me edit the speaker angle and crosshair color. These are crucial options!

0:05 The only selectable options are Multiplayer and Tournament. There's no story/campaign mode? I'm told to choose a character that suits my playing style. I choose fast and weak Kuro, because I figure I'll need the help dodging.
