Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Brendy posted about the 12 minutes of Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] footage over the weekend but I’ve been watching the narrative panel from San Diego Comic-Con in which it also made an appearance to just get a feel for what Infinity Ward are up to with this next instalment and what exactly is up with the space plot:

Here’s 12 Minutes Of The Infinite War From Call of Duty

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a robot face – forever. In Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site], you will play as the boot. Infinity Ward have graced the internet with a gameplay trailer showing off the first level, where the boot, played here by a soldier called Lt Reyes, must tramp through Geneva, shooting as many robots and robot-loving humans as possible, before flying into space and shooting possibly more robots among the stars. Come watch all the explosive, robophobic action after the jump.

Bustin’ Makes Activision Feel Good: Ghostbusters Is Out

I saw that there new Ghostbusters last night. It’s a fun-enough summer blockbuster, innit? I liked the bits with the ghosts and any time Kate McKinnon’s character did anything. And just as an old series is back, an old practice is too: the movie tie-in game.

Activision today released Ghostbusters [Steam page], a shooty third-person action-RPG with a story that’s set after the new film but stars even more new ‘Busters. No Holtzman? Pfff. Anyway, tie-in games are rarely worth mentioning but I’m fascinated because it feels like it’s been so long since movie games were ubiquitous, doesn’t it?

Black Ops 3 DLC Includes Dragons Because Why Not?

Platinum’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game Released

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan [official site], the latest from Bayonetta makers Platinum Games, is now out. I mention this not because I suffer from a crippling nostalgia which means I can only enjoy things from my youth, before I discovered anchovies are actually an acceptable pizza topping, but because Platinum can do great things even with licensed games. Metal Gear Rising, yeah? And Alec liked their Transformers game. So I’m certainly cooing cautiously at this. It’s got co-op too.

King’s Quest Episode 1 Is Now Free

A new King’s Quest [official site] was one of the first projects Activision announced after hauling the hide of Sierra Entertainment off their trophy wall and wrapping it around one of their colossal Actifingers, bringing back one of the shut-down publisher’s touchstones. With the series’ creators and makers long gone, the new episodic King’s Quest was made by P.B. Winterbottom devs The Odd Gentlemen. Three episodes are out so far, and now the first episode is free for everyone to try. Our John did not like it, but are you curious to see for yourself?
