Cool. The photo book about Kowloon City has long been on my wish list but it's insanely expensive.

Visited Kowloon the two times the carrier pulled into Hong Kong.  Fantastic shopping and great deals.  Got some killer tailor made clothing and 16-piece China service for dirt cheap.

Oh wait that link on the video page seems to link right back to the same page.

Complete with landing 747's as well.

Black ops marked the initial decline of the COD series.

At least for PC.
