BF3: A Mystery Wrapped In A Beta Engima

This isn't battlefield 3. This is Medal of Honor. Be still your beating heart.

We know nothing about Battlefield 3. Nothing. We don’t even know if there’ll actually be battlefields in it or not. Why, they might well be war-meadows instead. Or fight-commons. WE KNOW NOTHING. That hasn’t stopped EA from announcing a beta, and using it as a lure to make you buy the new Medal of Honor. Not just its standard copy, oh no. Purely its limited edition. Which is one more degree of abstraction than I believe we’ve previously had from betas’ original purpose.

Medal Of Honor + Linkin Park = Huh?

Run! They're starting!

Sure, while they’re all playing Starcraft II the rest of us have to find something to do. How about grumbling at a band? Did you even know Linkin Park were still going? It was only this afternoon that I was ranting at my poor, disinterested girlfriend that it’s a travesty that Linkin Park were ever so popular, while no one’s heard of Idiot Pilot. Silly singy/shouty pop plop. Well, apparently I’m completely out of the loop, as EA’s response to Modern Warfare, the relaunching of Medal Of Hono(u)r, is to feature Linkin Park’s new single, The Catalyst.

Spike TV’s Video Game Awards took place last night and EA tool the opportunity to run their trailer for the rebooted Medal Of Honor. I’ve posted it below, courtesy of the all-seeing GameTrailers. It’s all looking very modern.

Medal Of Honor Reborn

THAT'S a beard.

Cor, big gaming news: EA have announced Medal Of Hono(u)r is to return next year, all up-to-date and modern. What they’ve done here, you see, is they’ve taken a popular WW2 series and updated it to present what I’m going to call “modern warfare”. And frankly, good. Because I liked the Medal of Honour games even if they weren’t quite the most cutting edge, and the splendid Medal of Honour: Airborne was lost in the noise of Call of Duty’s reinvention. You should buy it. Although not at that price – cripes – that’s what it cost new! But to the new game. So, what do we know so far?

Medal of Honor: Airborne – PC Gamer Review

Our roving, investigative, and surprisingly tall reporter Quintin Smith has reviewed Medal of Honor: Airborne for PC Gamer, and it’s gone up on their site.

I link it because, well, it’s one of the best written reviews I’ve read in ages. And the game’s rather fun too.

“I responded by throwing all my grenades in random directions and leaping behind a piece of cover that turned out to have a Nazi behind it. A rifle-butt duel followed that had all the grace of a ladies’ slap fight, but when the Nazi did the polite thing and died I realised I had a perfect view of a fuel tank. Bemused, I proceeded to detonate the thing with a few shots from my rifle.”

Wolfenstein of Honor

I’m reviewing Medal of Honor: Airborne (it’s for someone else, so thoughts on it another time – briefly though, it’s pretty good, pleasingly non-linear but fairly silly).

I just stumbled across this.

It’s a Nazi Super-Soldier. In Medal of Honor. Gas mask, experimental chaingun and everything. He took about six grenades to kill. I can’t stop laughing.

Medal Of Honor: Airborne Demo

You can download it from here, at the princely size of 1.3gb. Word on the street (well, in the pub at least) is that this is a pretty good iteration of the soldier series, at least offering some competition for the mighty Call of Duty games. Airborne contains lots of hot parachuting action, violence against Nazis, and broad levels to allow you some shooting freedom in an otherwise linear action game. Huff huff, or whatever it is American soldiers say.

Jumping out of a plane: Manly.
