Medal of Honor is being ‘taken out of rotation’

As usual, 2012 saw EA and Activision going head to head in the contemporary warfare market, with Call of Duty Black Ops 2 on one side, up against Medal Of Honour: Warfighter on the other side. In an end result that surprised nobody, ever, Medal of Honor lost big time to the COD juggernaut. Thanks to a game that was plainer than vanilla and a sour taste from the previous stab at the franchise, MOH came out the loser last year, as well as becoming the most expensive advert for a Linkin Park song in history. And now, it looks like we won’t be seeing anymore MOH for a long time.

On the 12 deals of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

The twelve deals of Christmas is back! Or, erm, actually, it’s been back for a few days now. And if you haven’t dropped by to check in on your Playstation 3 Network in a while now, you may have missed out on a few good deals. My bad. Anyway, there’s still quite a few games left to go until the sale ends. Let’s take a look shall we?

Navy SEALS disciplined for Medal of Honour consultation work

I’ll say one thing about Medal of Honour: Warfighter, it’s pretty damn authentic. It may be a run of the mill shooter that Jim Lenoir thinks deserved some harsh and unfair criticism, but when it comes to painting the world in drab greys and browns, it does so with enough accuracy to actually double as a documentary. That’s thanks to the input the game received from real life military operatives. Except the soldiers who helped out on a certain mission that has zero darkness in thirty places, are kinda in trouble now.

Medal of Honour: Warfighter Multiplayer trailer

As is the case every year we have two top notch military first person shooter titles going up against each other from EA Games and Activision. Unbelievably EA’s one, Medal of Honour: Warfighter, is actually due out next week.

Gamescom 2012 EA – Medal of Honor Warfighter is a world at war

Time to highlight that other game from EA that focuses on death and destruction from a first-person perspective, Medal Of Honor Warfighter. We all know that several nations will be represented, but how many exactly?

Medal of Honour: Warfighter will pit international Special Forces against each other

Hey, lookie here, it’s another contemporary warfare game wherein America saves the day! USA! USA! USA! Oh wait, this might not actually be the case in the upcoming Medal of Honour: Warfighter, as it looks players will get to flex their various special forces muscles from around the world this time, as several other international military groups are making their way into the game.

Are gamers ready for World War II again?

Though it really started with conqueror and Wolfenstein 3D, a couple of years back after the explosive success of games like Medal of Honour and Call of Duty the world became inundated with World War II themed games. First and third person shooters, flight simulators, real-time strategy games and even sneaky-stabby stealth games all had that World War II flavour - until gamers got bored of the setting.

According to Rebellion's Steve Hart - producer of Sniper Elite V2 - gamers are tiring of all that Modern warfare and are ready to take fight on historical battlefields once more.

Game on for MWEB

Back in November, 2010 MWEB partnered with Gameservers.com to exclusively host the much anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops. The announcement was well received and since then the South African gun slingers have contributed their fair share to the incredible numbers boasted by the game. Now MWEB and Gameservers.com has announced that it will be hosting an additional 53 gaming titles (including Counter Strike, Battlefield and Medal of Honour). It has also deployed its own Steam Server to ensure the best possible gaming experience to South Africans. Hit the jump to see what cards MWEB are holding.

Lazygamer Review | Medal of Honor

The Medal of Honor franchise returns after a massive slump of lackluster titles failed to maintain the interest of the series' original glory, and this time it looks like it means business. Like an old war veteran, the Medal of Honor series can go on and on about the glory days, but we all know that none of that matters as much as your last credit roll. Due to Medal of Honor using two completely separate engines for the campaign and multiplayer, I have separated the two and even split the scores into two to help you make your decision. It's a 2-for-1 special review, what a bargain! Hit the jump to see it all.

The only thing that could possibly make Team Fortress 2 any better was if all of the characters were gorgeous ladies, so thanks to Nemesis on Deviant Art for the image in the header.

EA predicts Medal of Hono(u)r to take them back into the big time

EA’s game label president, Frank Gibeu, has boldly predicted that its upcoming Medal of Honor will propel EA back into being a contender as a worldwide leader in shooters.

In a lengthy interview he goes on to claim that Medal of Honor Airborne was a bit of a disappointment but that was being finished off when he arrived and he didn’t have much time to fix that.

I can testify to Airborne’s mediocrity as it had some nice ideas but the overall package wasn’t worth full retail.

In Other News – April 29, 2010

After seeing a Great White Shark in our last In Other News post, Rajollie, a terrified reader requested "boobies" for the next header instead of another scary-ass creature. We couldn't let a poor fear-stricken reader down now could we? Being a gaming site, we can't just put up random boobs images without any sort of relation to gaming, *cough* what do you take us for? This chick was totally in Red Alert 3, which completely justifies the image, mmmkay. Here's what you missed:

New Medal of Hono(u)r screens looks hot

EA are sending out a pretty loud message to Activision that last years Modern Warfare 2 was the last Modern Warfare that they get to do without some serious competition.

The Medal of Honour series has a long and sordid history and as long as we ignore the last one that was released the entire history looks great, but it has never come anywhere near to the graphically glory that these screenshots display.
