Valve Anti-Cheat software goes a bit GlaDOS?

UPDATIER: See this. UPDATE: Some consideration of whether this is actually a VAC problem, or simply MW2 being a bit nob, can be found here. We're getting word that over the last week a slew of Modern Warfare 2 players have been banned from the game by Valve's Anti-Cheat software, or HAL VAC for short. You know, the same software found in Team Fortress 2…

Inevitable Call of Duty MMO Rumour

Yeah, this is the definition of people spinning out a story from very little, but Massively report the LA Time doing an article the LA Times did on MW2's launch. Fairly standard fluff. Except at the end a source close to the company say that they're considering an MMO. Which is an interesting idea, especially tied to news that a third company are now working…

Wot I Think: Modern Warfare 2

A videogame has been released. Also, the Beatles have split up and Kennedy's been shot. Hadn't you heard? I haven't hurried, as such, to get my thoughts on this omnipresent game up on RPS, as it's not like it's going to affect anyone's buying decision after all that hype and backlash, is it? But here they are now, after having had some time to digest…

A Videogame Was Released Today

You might have noticed. You might have queued up at silly o'clock to get a copy. You might even have got some sort of tattoo to commemorate how excited you are about the prospect of shooting virtual men of assorted ethnic origins. Aye, today was Modern Warfare 2 day - a game that, for a lot of the industry and its consumers, has managed to…

Digi Retailers Drop Modern Warfare 2

The Big K has news that the major digital download services are boycotting troubled enormo-shooter Modern Warfare 2 because of the inclusion of Valve's Steamworks. Apparently Direct2Drive were first out with the news, saying they had "told publishers that they'd stop selling games bundled in such a manner until Valve "decoupled its retail marketplace" from Steam's other services." GamersGate and Impulse will also be boycotting…

Today’s MW2 Mass Sigh: 18 Max Multiplayer

You know the scene in the Hobbit where they arrive at Beorn's house? Rather than the whole mass of 'em going in at once, they just send a couple in first, and then gradually reveal exactly how many dwarves are going to be scoffing his honeycakes. The idea being, that he'd tell them to sling their hook if they all marched in at once. Since…

Modern Warfare 2 Opening Footage Leaked?

People looking to avoid Modern Warfare 2 spoilers should not read on. A remarkable video (below) of what's purported to be the beginning of Modern Warfare 2 has appeared. It's in French, and we've obviously no idea if it's definitely real at this point, but it seems to be showing the first level of the game, in which you play a terrorist mowing down innocent…

Born To Rhun: Third Age Total War 1.3

I've been primarily playing mods this week. This is the one has been eating most of my time. I mean that quite literally. I've been playing this most of my time. It's eaten mornings and afternoons and evenings I really can't afford to spend beating the hell out of Rhun. See! Rhun! Who the hell is Rhun? It's a Middle Earth Medieval II mod, and…

Modern Warfare 2 Server Response

Game Informer were first in line with the responses from Infinity Ward, with this peculiarly unpleasant article by Adam Biessener. The Game Informer writer says of the general outcry about the news that MW2 would not support dedicated servers for online play: "Predictably, nerds across world took to the Internet with a wailing and a gnashing of teeth that would make the Left 4 Dead…

No Dedicated Servers for MW2?

Hmm! Over at BashAndSlash, a Call Of Duty community website, Infinity Ward's community manager, Robert Bowling, confirmed there would be no dedicated server option for excruciatingly-anticipated super-shooter Modern Warfare 2. Really? Apparently so: dedicated servers will be replaced with a match-making service called IWNet. This will place you against players of your own rank, and remove dedicated server lists. There will also be options for…

Special Operations Within Special Operations

The all-seeing vid-eye of GameTrailers has nabbed some more Modern Warfare 2 footage, with explanatory chatter from the devs. It focuses on Spec-Ops mode, which is the co-op mode which consists in a whole bunch of independent missions that boast a modicum of internal variation. Not sure I quite understand what this chap is saying about alternative difficulty setting, however. He says the difficult effects…

Angrytank Time: COD:MW2 PC Delayed

Come on everybody! Climb aboard! This is the Angrytank Express, headed direct to Stop Screwing Over The PC You Massive Bastards city. Like pretty much every fuggin' thing that has a multi-platform release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on PC has, it now transpires, been delayed. Only by a fortnight, but still - for God's sakes. Toot toot! The Angrytank Is Go!

More Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Footage

More online manshoot movie has emerged from the fertile innards of Infinity Ward, this time showing off some flag grabbing in Modern Warfare 2. I don't know if it's just me, but I find the idea of dudes running around with riot shields when there are rocket launchers and assault rifles on the field rather amusing. "My shield of reinforced plastic will save me!" Modern…

Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Trailer

An intensely shooty new trailer for Modern Warfare 2 has turned up, and I've posted it below. This one shows in-game footage from multiplayer, with its customisable killstreaks, and a glimpse of the AC-130 gunship. As aerial gun-platforms go, that's one of the best. I'm not really sure of the appeal of the killstreaks thing - are there any COD4 multiplayer types out there who…

Prices Rising? Modern Warfare 2 For £40

As you'll have heard, there's a game called Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 coming out this Christmas. A game that's expected to be so huge that other publishers are hiding their games in cupboards until it goes away. Even publisher Activision doesn't want to launch its own games against it. But there's one country where consumers might be a little surprised when it comes…
