Have You Played… Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Like Graham, I’ve always felt bad for the Brothers In Arms series of games. The WWII shooter was well into its fatigue stage by the time these games got around to doing something intelligent with it. Rocking up to the beaches of Normandy in Medal of Honor or storming the streets of Stalingrad in Call of Duty were excellent set pieces at the time. But neither game came close to making you think about anything that was going on, it was run and/or gun. That’s it. Brothers In Arms introduced a tactical element – and it was simple too. You just had to point at things.

The Ten Hottest Robots In Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Gotcha. It’s just a new trailer. Alongside a video of the upcoming Mass Effect spin-off, some footage for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] was also released during Sony’s dull as drapes news conference today. It shows a bunch of our friendly soldiers storming into an abandoned space facility where the sun outside burns at 900 degrees. It looks like it’s an asteroid mining complex. I can tell because of all the dissatisfied robot labourers.

Let’s Learn About Infinite Warfare Multiplayer, Shall We?

We’ve had a taste for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s [official site] story and the requisite zombies co-op mode (this time with wild ’80s prints and the Hoff himself), but what of the multiplayer? How will we compete in this world of infinite war?

Here’s Six Minutes Of CoD: Infinite Warfare’s Campaign

Although Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] is sadly not the procedurally-generated Escherian Nightmare we might’ve hoped for, Activision’s latest war-torn FPS is set in space and you’ll be pleased to know its single-player campaign looks to be shaping up nicely.  Don’t take my word for it, though – cast your eyes over six new minutes of gameplay highlights below.

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Announced

Activision today announced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site], the latest in their long-running mega-hit military FPS series, and I am sorely disappointed. Firstly, today is a holiday in the UK, so I’m not even supposed to be here. Secondly, Infinite Warfare is about futurewar with spaceships and everything, not the Escherian nightmare that we were assured it would be. This ‘real’ Infinite Warfare does sound exciting, but I can only assume we were deceived as someone’s idea of a ‘joke’.

Activision also announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a revamp of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – the game which defined the next nine years of CoD.

This Year, Call Of Duty May Be Heading To Space

Call of Duty: Space Wars. Orbital Ops, maybe. Post-Modern Warfare. Space Warfare? Probably not that one.

Whatever the name might be, there have been rumours and suggestions of a space-based Call of Duty for several years and it seems increasingly likely that this year’s Infinity Ward release might be that game. I hope the moon explodes in at least one mission.

Call Of Fruity: Aubergine Warfare


This morning I have been documenting a fruit and vegetable market in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I think I was supposed to be rescuing a president or something but the shiny fruit looked more interesting. I don’t mean that as a sick burn or anything. I just got distracted by some nice fruit.
