Activision announced today it was collaborating with some celebrities to help create video content for the Call of Duty Elite service. Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg named director Ridley Scott, producer Tony Scott, producer Ben Silverman, actor Jason Bateman, and actor Will Arnett to be working on Elite projects.
The actual Medal of Honor.
Will we see annual releases of EA’s Medal of Honor series regardless of quality? Perhaps so, because EA’s development studios Danger Close and DICE are in a project rotation cycle similar to how Activision releases Call of Duty games from Treyarch and Infinity Ward.
Straight out of the history books…right.
I never saw this coming. I thought WWII games were dead for the time being. But it seems that one of my favorite series of all time, Brothers in Arms, is getting a sequel. While the previous three games were clearly based off of the somber, realistic, and historically accurate Band of Brothers miniseries, this new game, dubbed “Furious 4″ is taken right out of Quentin Tarantino’s over the top Inglorious Basterds.
OMG, it’s already been 10 years since the original Halo blasted its way into shooter fan’s hearts on the original Xbox. And to think there wasn’t even online multiplayer for it back then, everybody just fragged each other in a LAN party. Nothing like hauling multiple Xboxes and TVs into one room for team deathmatch.
Hey, the Transamerica Pyramid can’t be seen from that angle!
We haven’t talked about Homefront in a while. Here’s a quick refresher: Kim Jong Il dies, his son takes over, he somehow reunites both North and South under communist rule, Japan and the rest of east Asia are annexed, gas prices rise to $20.00/gallon and the dollar collapses, and somehow those godless commies take over my sweet America.
Now this is how you play first person shooters! CTA Digital’s Move-compatible Assault Rifle Controller is just perfect for the discriminating player who thought Modern Warfare 2′s infamous “No Russian” mission just wasn’t immersive enough.
There have been countless games set in World War II, but none-for understandable reason-have depicted the Holocaust. It’s just too sensitive a subject, especially in a form of entertainment that easily fans knee-jerk outrage. I consider myself strongly anti-censorship, but even I would feel uneasy with the Holocaust depicted in a video game.
As gamers we have probably killed more Nazis than the Allies did in WWII. But just when you thought there couldn’t be another WWII shooter without eliciting a collective groan, GameTrailers has posted a trailer for…something. That something is called DINO D-DAY. That’s Dino-Motherf-’in D-day! I am officially mildly intrigued.
