EA: Medal Of Honor’s Not Dead, Just Sleeping

EA's officially dishonorably discharged the Medal of Honor franchise. That's unfortunate for a number of reasons, but mainly because it made John sad. As he put it, "It needs new direction, not shelving until the next inevitable reboot in five years time, once Battlefield has run entirely aground." So, now it's time for another episode of Good News, Bad News, Picture of an Ostrich. First,…

Well, Looks Like That’s It For Medal Of Honor, Then

Oh Medal of Honor. You've traveled around the world, through time, and between the hands of countless developers. You've seen some things, man. But in recent outings, you've lost your way trying to play rigid railroad conductor to ours, and Warfighter clung so tightly to the straight-and-narrow that it ended up careening right into the bargain bin. Also, there was that whole Linkin Park thing.…

Muddle of Honor: Worf Fighter’s Day-One Ultra-Patch

I almost feel sorry for 'em. Almost. Then I remember they're making a game that has the hallmarks of being designed purely to appeal to the massest market possible, dead set on keeping up with the Activision Joneses rather than doing anything adventurous, and I don't feel sorry for 'em. But poor old Danger Close/EA, in their endless fight against Activision, hurrying to make a…

Hmmmm: Medal Of Honor’s Bin Laden DLC

Everyone, stand back. I'm going to fire up the Conflict-O-Tron. (Note: side effects of the Conflict-O-Tron may include inability to pin down an emotional response and also a sensation that feels like you're about to sneeze, but you can't, and it'll never go away.) You see, EA's announced a DLC map pack for the still-unreleased Medal of Honor: Warfighter. It's doing the whole "free for pre-orderers…

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

One of the hoary old jokes we lazy gaming hacks like to do is dismissively refer to "ManShooter VIII" or "Gears Of Duty MCVIIXI", sneering at the homogenisation of the mainstream industry. But really, the sarcasm is going to be undetectable if games keep calling themselves Warface and Warfighter. The latter is, of course, the moniker of the second Medal Of Honor game in the…

Trouble In The Trees: Medal Of Honor Multiplayer

Black Ops 2 may have a villain with all of the weapons and most of the beards, but that doesn't mean we can just forget about the game's real-life nemesis - who also has all of the weapons and most of the beards. I speak, of course, about Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which would also like to show you its fanciest new war-waging wares. This time,…

Medal Of Honor Warfighter Is Impervious To Bullets

I've always found it curious that Medal of Honor Warfighter's title is singular. Well, OK, first I found it curious that anyone would name a game "Warfighter," but - based on the numbers these things do - there is an incredibly discerning customer out there somewhere who walks through GameStop treating his Homefronts and Duty Fields Of Honor like fine vintages, considering each with a…

Medal of Honor: Worf Fighter Fights Some More War

Here is a controversial statement: aubergines are horrible. Here is another controversial statement: I don't think there's an upcoming videogame I'm less interested in than Danger Close's Medal of Honor: Wharf-fighter. It's not really its fault, or its developers' fault. They're taking advantage of commercial realities, and even if said commercial realities are deeply disappointing to any gamer with more than six brain cells to…

Eyes To Slow-Mo, It’s The Medal of Honor Wrftrr Trailer

Yup, the M'dal orf Hrnnnr MANWARFIGHT trailer does that thing where there's a portentous, dark opening with stealthy soldiers before scenes from the game get all piled-up at the end. You need to be a hummingbird to watch the damn thing properly. So here to fill you in with more details is guest hummingbird correspondent, Hummingway. sdfskfjhgasdfiuefliasdflaisdhf''''dda=--3. Erm, right: so that's what happens when you…

Guess What You Do In Medal of Honor: Warfighter?

If there's a surprise in the announcement that there's to be another game in EA's modern reboot of the Medal of Honor series, it's that the subtitle "Warfighter" survived basic training: no-one in the development studio giggled, no-one in marketing made this face >:(, John Riccitiello didn't suddenly come to his senses on the toilet and tell them to 'drop it and call it "2"'?…

EA Developing Medal Of Honour Sequel

Who'd have thought it? EA is pregnant with the manshoot baby once again. Joystiq brings words of a blog post from MoH executive producer Greg Goodrich saying that "Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor." He also says "Medal of Honor was a big success with over 5 million copies sold," and, you know, all sorts of things about medals…

TaliBAM: Medal Of Honor Launch Trailer

Oh snap. Us Europeans might be getting Gothic 4 first, but the Americans get Medal of Honor first. It's out today in North America, Thursday in mainland Europe and Australia, and Friday in the UK. I wonder if this news is also upsetting to that one Mexican reader, and will cause him to throw his huevos rancheros out of the window in a rage. Maybe…

Medal Of Honour Renames Taliban Team

Apropos of what Medal of Honour developers Danger Close are calling "Feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers," (as opposed to feedback from all over the place) the side fighting the US Army in the game's multiplayer is being renamed from Taliban to Oppposing Force. Executive Producer Greg Goodwich went on to say that there would be no changes to the multiplayer itself, meaning…

Afghan Wig-Out: Medal Of Honor Beta

I'm not sure what the fine array of gentlemen, gentlewomen and gentleothers who frequent this site of ours think of EA's upcoming Medal of Honor reboot. However, you may put your opinion, whatever it is, to the test in ten days' time. On October 4th, EA are holding a three-day open beta for their Call of Duty rival. They appear to have two intentions: 1)…
