Wot I Think – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer

We’ve already aired our misgivings over Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign mode but how does the multiplayer stack up? Does the space-future setting re-energise the arena, or is it the same as always with a fresh coat of silver paint? We threw Brendan into the murderfields to find out.

It has a fitting name, I’ll give it that. Call of Duty is the series that seems to go on forever – it never dies and it never changes. There is always a man and there is always a gun, to bastardise a phrase from another game concerned with the Infinite. This outing has taken the action to outer space but it has done so little with the opportunity that it is hard to recommend, even to those who have been with the series from its Modern Warfare glory days.

Wot I Think – Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Campaign

Battlefield 1 may have fallen back to 1914 but the other first-person shooters of the year are marching on, towards militaristic futurewar. Titanfall 2 was released a week ago (inexplicably, in the gap between two monster franchises) and now Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] has rounded off the explosive triumvirate with more grenades, dogfights and tin men. It’s that final image – that of the tin man – which best sums up how I feel about the story campaign of Infinity Ward’s latest gunromp. Let me try to explain what I mean.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – Watch Full Crew Expendable Mission

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has a new video showing off the game’s snazzy makeover. To the casual viewer you are seeing bits of Crew Expendable, the second mission from the game wherein yer man Soap MacTavish is going on a cruise sent to retrieve a package from an Estonian freighter.

More technically-focused watchers will note “next generation textures, physically based rendering high-dynamic range lighting and much more to bring a new generation experience to fans”.

Wot I Think: Call Of Duty: Ghosts – Single Player

If you haven’t read my thoughts on the first three hours of Call Of Duty: Ghosts, it’s worth looking through those first. But now the single player campaign is finished, here’s wot I think:

Quick, Something! Modern Warfare 3 Teasers

In game title?!?!

It’s been a funny week for leaks and attacks. Deus Ex Human Revolution’s website getting hacked (which does seem a bit like Thief 4’s website getting stolen), an MP leaking a game announcement (which is my favourite embargo break ever – presumably Creative Assembly will be punishing Vaizey by refusing to give him preview code), and then the rather astonishing complete spoil-fest of not only huge amounts of content for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but even that Modern Warfare 3 exists. Activision and Infinity Ward have sprung into action and created four teaser trailers that confirm it all for themselves. You can watch them below.

The Gloves Are, Er, On: Singularity Trailers

When I'm older I want to be a skellington too.

I have this glove that can manipulate objects through time. So I’ve been excited to follow the progress of Singularity, a game that I can identify with. However, now they’ve revealed that the glove in the game can also fire giant bursts of “Impulse Power”, which makes mine look like last year’s iPhone. It can also fire time bubbles to trap your enemies. I could do with one of those after yesterday. You can watch the glove-based action below. Along with a few other bits and pieces about the glove that have appeared in the last couple of weeks. It’s set for release at the end of next month, but I could of course just get a copy whenever I wanted by reaching into the future and grabbing it. I don’t, because of embargoes.
