Medal of Honor: Worf Fighter Fights Some More War

Fight, Worf! Fight!

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 rub together it only makes sense for a large corporation to pander to them, I suppose. I personally am just so past caring about pretending to be a semi-contemporary soldier who repeatedly shoots men from other countries. Don’t mind me being all bitter-pants over here though. Have a look at the shootybangbang shoot shoot bang bang shoot bang shoot bang bang bang shoot shoot shoot bang bang shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot bang footage that came out of E3 below, if you must.

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

Geoff, why did it suddenly get a lot warmer?
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 invite a hummingbird to the keyboard. My mistake, I should have seen that one coming. I’ll take that on the chin. I’ve managed to find out some information, so you can watch the vide and read that while I pick chunks of bird out of my beard.

Guess What You Do In Medal of Honor: Warfighter?

That man is staring down war like it is a thing
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”‘? Not only is it a redundant mess of a name, but it’s not even a unique redundant mess. I expect Tom Clancy to hold a mock funeral, just so he can commence grave-spinning. So yes, there is a man, he’ll be fighting in a war. Other details are somewhat missing in action.

EA Developing Medal Of Honour Sequel

If he removed the backwards cap there would be another, smaller backwards cap beneath it

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 and honor. Read the full announcement after the jump.

TaliBAM: Medal Of Honor Launch Trailer

I fired a real gun once but it was dreadfully loud.

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 I’m being unfair to him. Maybe he’s quite restrained.

Wot John Thinks of Medal of Honor will be hitting this very site when the review embargo lifts at 2pm, GMT. Until then, feast your eyes and whatever gland it is that produces testosterone on the launch trailer below.

Medal Of Honour Renames Taliban Team

Know what I'd love to play? Medal of Dishonour. I think that'd be fun.

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 the character models are staying unchanged and IEDs will remain a weapon of choice. Full statement after the jump.

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) To make you buy the game
2) To clear up “any misunderstanding about the patriotism”
