President Trump showed a weird frag montage in his video game violence meeting

US President Donald Trump yesterday held a private meeting to discuss the issue of violence in video games, having suggested after February's murders at a school in Parkland, Florida that it "is really shaping young people's thoughts." This would clearly amount to nothing productive, given mostly industry representatives and conservative pressure groups were attending, but it is a surprise that Trump showed attendees a short…

Humvee manufacturer suing Activision over Call of Duty warcars

The manufacturers of Humvees are suing Activision over Call of Duty games featuring vehicles which, they say, look an awful lot like their own warcars. AM General claim that these Humvee-lookin' vehicles violate their trademark and Activision don't have permission, so they want CoD to knock it off and pay them damages. Their case pivots on several Call of Duty games, including Modern Warfare and…

Modern Warfare 3 Is A Shooting Game

Look, I don't want this to be another groundhog day. I don't want the comments thread to fill up with people going 'Call of Duty is boring' and then some other people saying "that's just, like, your opinion, man." I just want you to only bother watching this video of Modern Warfare 3's 'Spec Ops' co-op mode if you honestly have a real interest in…

COD Elite: The Free, The Paid & The Hmm

Call of Duty Elite, the social networking/clan-organising thingy for COD multiplayer, got a whole lot of backs up when it was unveiled the other week - the prevailing, Chinese-whispered sense being that we'd be expected to fork out to get the full CoD multiplayer experience. With the waters very much muddied, Activision seem to be in fire-fighting mode - now explicitly stating just what will…

Feature: You Get To Be Elite By Paying, Right?

Very Modern Warfare: Thoughts On CoD Elite

It was always going to happen, and now it has. The nature of a corporation is never to sit still and be content with its lot - it's to forever look to ways to make more money from what it has. (If RPS had a scrap of sense, we'd have launched a couple of spin-offs by now, but a corporation we are not). Activision was…

Antisocial Network: Call of Duty Elite Trailer

The day has come: Activision has finally introduced Plan B. Plan B is much like Plan A, in that it also involves making an absolute crapton of money out of Call of Duty. This time, it's called Call of Duty Elite, and it's a social networking, clan-arranging, video-sharing, stat-analysing online service for COD multiplayer. Some aspects for it will be free; others will involve a…

Call of Whoopsie: Modern Warfare 3 Spoilt?

Someone's getting a) bollocked b) fired c) executed tonight, I'm sure. If Kotaku's sources are right, basically everything about this year's Call of Duty has just been blown wide open and revealed to John Q. Public some six months before likely release. It's Modern Warfare 3 and it's...

“Look At That Shit”

It is, as you probably haven't been able to avoid, Black Ops O'Clock at midnight tonight. In time-honoured fashion, I will be shooting some dudes then writing some words about shooting some dudes on the morrow, but ahead of that let's not forget Call of Warfare Duty 2 Modern, the game the seized the hearts and mind of a hundred billion men. What passion, indeed,…

Valve Anti-Cheat software goes a bit GlaDOS?

UPDATIER: See this. UPDATE: Some consideration of whether this is actually a VAC problem, or simply MW2 being a bit nob, can be found here. We're getting word that over the last week a slew of Modern Warfare 2 players have been banned from the game by Valve's Anti-Cheat software, or HAL VAC for short. You know, the same software found in Team Fortress 2…

Infinity Ward Staff Sue Activision For $125m

A while back, on a slow news day, I wrote a spoof story about there being only one man left at Infinity Ward. I'm started to wonder if it was prophecy. The Modern Warfare developers are rapidly running out of employees as more leave, many to join Respawn Entertainment, the new studio started up by former Infinity Ward top dogs, Vince Zampella and Jason West.…

Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Free Weekend

You know what's cheaper than paying for something? When it's free. But no, don't immediately leap upon this philosophy and turn to a life of crime inspired by my simple question, thus implicating me in your spree and dragging my good name into the mud. Instead why not play Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 this weekend, starting tomorrow, on Steam? Because you might be…

Infinity Ward On Call Of Duty 6

Call of Duty 4 was top notch because it was developed by series originators Infinity Ward, so it's pleasing to know that it'll be returning to them in 2009 for its sixth installment. This was confirmed by Activision Publishing CEO Mike Griffith at yesterday's Activision Blizzard Analyst Day. No other details yet, although the rumour-mill suggests that the theme might be sci-fi war. I'm not…
