Yes! 2013! I have all these New Year’s resolutions! Oh wait… I don’t. Moving on then, due to a very disappointing lack of interest (shame on you) in a Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 league, Do Gaming has cancelled them for both these titles.
Shooters aren’t just about shooting (doh!), it’s about the sheer thrill of tactical gameplay and strategy. That head-shot from 300m away, that SMG rush, that AK-47 destruction, and then sometimes there’s a story in it or whatever. There’s been a great battle of the shooters this year, but whether you love it or hate it, the award goes to…
The Zero Dark Thirty Map Pack DLC for Medal of Honor Warfighter is a DLC about the Osama bin Laden assassination, the trailer looks good, but not sure if it’s too soon to be putting it in a game or not.
Every once in a while a review copy finds its way to my humble abode. Most of you probably don't know but I generally have a number of self-imposed guidelines. For one thing, whatever game I'm reviewing must be finished. Every review must be case-specific (that just means that if I do end up comparing titles and features, it has to be: apples with apples, and pears with pears). Thirdly, and most importantly, I never read other reviews, prior to - or while writing a review. It's a simple set of rules, that I hope, manages to keep my own writing as honest as possible. Right or wrong, agree or disagree, you're getting a review that is as honest and objective as possible - bar my usual idiosyncrasies and biases.
The Do Gaming League has ended and this used to mean that eSports season is over, but this year, we continue with the Dota 2 SteelSeries Spring League, a brand new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive cup and the launch of some Medal of Honor: Warfighter local servers.
There’s always something about multiplayer modes in which you don’t respawn that adds intensity and immediacy to all of your actions; it’s probably what made Gears of War’s multiplayer so damned enthralling. There’s one such mode in the new Medal of Honor: Warfighter that left me pretty surprised, and maybe even keen to play the modern combat shooter - a genre I’m notoriously bored to tears with.
After reading a very good article by Associate Editor, Laura Parker of Gamespot I find myself incredibly conflicted with how things are going in the video games industry. Parker writes about publisher Electronic Arts endorsing and promoting real-world weapons in partnership with upcoming title Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
