That’s Entertainment…

VG247 posted this video of the first five minutes of Treyarch's Call of Duty 5, which is out next week. Pat notes that the intro sequences includes actual footage of people being executed. Not game engine killing, or rendered in a cutscene, but the actual death of someone in the war. Of course we see this kind of footage all the time in documentaries about…

The series has gone back to WWII for this instalment, developed by Treyarch (who take care of the odd numbered games, Infinity Ward doing the evens).The game's been betaing on the 360 for a couple of weeks, and now finally the PC version is ready to…

Call of Duty: World At War: Hands On And Chat-talk

This is turning into a link-to-stuff-we've done day, I know. Apologies, but the last minute organisation (i.e. All the organisation) for this evening's Thinkosium is devouring the day. Still - here's the freshly published piece I wrote for Eurogamer where I interviewed Producer Noah Heller and wrote a little about my impressions. Since I wrote it, the Zombie game mode has been confirmed with footage…

The Zombie Invasion

How many zombies does it take to make a meme? How many zombies is too many zombies? And why is every game suddenly obsessed with them? Well, even more so than usual.It certainly seems like the en vogue way to drum up renewed interest in a game right now - no less than three usually non-zombie-centric titles have made the headlines in the last few…

Ex-plo-sion! Call Of Duty Trailer

A new trailer for World At War has arrived, and it's brief but ever-so-explody. This latest transmission from developers Treyarch shows off the flamethrowers, the bombs, the tanks, and the destructible scenery. And there's quite a lot of all of those things. It's all in-engine, but only a teensy bit appears to be "in-game", if you see what I mean. Mmm, perhaps we shouldn't start…

Call of Co-Op: World Of Duty. Trailer War.

The next Call Of Duty game, World At War, is all co-operative. This means that you can play along with your friends and relatives and never be alone again. To illustrate its chummy nature there is now a trailer, which shows two folks doing war in the Pacific theatre. It looks pretty good, with excellent jungle and some splendid bazooka action. You can see this…

E3: The Trailers – Call of Duty 5

As there's doubtless a legion of Nazi-jaded folk queuing up to loudly lament COD's return to WW2, now seems an opportune moment to observe that hey, some of you seem really angry this week. Is it pre-release tension about all these games? Are you okay? Do you need a hug? A biscuit, maybe? Please be happier. Please.COD: World At War, then. A taste of co-op…

Eurogamer: Call of Duty 5

...as I shall insist on calling it, even though it's officialy 'COD: World at War.' Anyway, here words here, which I wrote for Britain's Most Influential Games Journalist Tom Bramwell over at Eurogamer after getting eyes-on with COD5 a little while back. Things said include the likes of this: "You get the sense all the secrecy is at least partly because World at War is…

Hey, It’s A Call of Duty Trailer

I know! Who'd have thought that there would be another Call Of Duty game. And that they would advertise its existence with miniaturised motion pictures on the internet! Well, dowse your incredulity and set course for hyperbole island, because below the jump is a trailer for the fifth Call of Duty game. World At War, for that is its entirely generic subtitle, is a World…
