Trevor “qu1ksh0t” Henry is well known in the old school Call of Duty 4 community in South Africa. Having been a driving force behind one of our oldest clans, Big Fat B*stards and a great Call of Duty 4 talent, Henry has left an imprint here and will now do so on the international scene as a League of Legends shoutcaster for Riot Games, creators of the game.
For my inaugural eSports Spotlight I’ve chosen an eSports organisation very close to my heart. These gentlemen have not only been a part of our local competitive scene for many, many years but have huge determination to help better and grow South African competitive gaming.
I caught up with Joshua ‘Fluff_E’ Forbes to find out just what BFB has been up to and what their plans are for the future.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare never made it to the Nintnedo Wii as at the time I guess Activision didnâ€™t think there would be much of a market for it. Call of Duty World at War however was released on the Wii and sold over a million copies.
Now Activision has had a change of heart and has decided to ship Call of Duty 4 for the Wii on the 10th of November. The same day that Modern Warfare 2 gets released on all the other platforms and Modern Warfare Mobilised is released on the not so powerful Nintendo DS.
The Intel Battle Of The Clans v5 is here! Having done fairly well for their first big online tournament in BOTC v4, the miNt Gaming organisation is ready to take the competition head on this time. The Counter-Strike: Source team managed to make it to the top 8, placing 7th overall, unfortunately having some line-up troubles at the time.
The Call of Duty 4 competition was hotly contested, unfortunately the team did not manage to make it through the group stages and was forced to play in the Intermediate stage. Also having some line-up difficulties the team persisted and was able to pull a first place overall.
Starbreezeâ€™s 2007 story-oriented FPS â€œThe Darknessâ€ was one of the yearâ€™s most underappreciated gems. Eclipsed by bigger shooters such as Call of Duty 4, Bioshock and Crysis, The Darkness brought Top Cowâ€™s cult comic book to life. A flawed masterpiece, it contains what is still one of the most emotionally impactive scenes Iâ€™ve encountered in interactive fiction. Besides, Any game featuring Faith No Moreâ€™s Mike Patton is a winner as far as Iâ€™m concerned.
Good news for fans is that Top Cow have confirmed that a sequel to the game is currently in development. Bad News? Original developers Starbreeze have confirmed that they will not be helming the project. According to Starbreezeâ€™s CEO Johan Kristiansson : â€œI heard that there were talks about a Darkness sequel, but Starbreeze is not involved in anything like that right now. We are busy on two projects together with EA,â€ he said.
Hopefully the as yet unnamed studio behind the sequel is up to the task.
