  • To those that find it weird to have zombies in Call o...
    By on October 26th, 2008 | No Comments Comments

    I’ve seen a few people questioning and even talking negatively about the newest installment of Call of Duty of having zombies in the game. One said “I don’t think there were zombies in ww2″ and the other would ask “why zombies?”, not the exact words but you get my point. And my question to these people is, “why not?”. The zombie stage is not part of the story, it is only available AFTER you finish the game, like an unlockable. The developers were nice enough to throw in some neat bonus in there and you guys are bashing the idea? Give me a break!

    As mentioned in my post a while ago, I was and still am debating whether I should get this game or not, now that I know there is an unlockable zombie level PLUS you can play co-op with this, the chance of me buying it is greater than ever.

    For those open minded, check out the zombie killing trailer.




  • Will Call of Duty: World at War kill Call of Duty 4?
    By on October 11th, 2008 | No Comments Comments

    Will Call of Duty: World at War kill Call of Duty 4? This question popped into my head while I was waiting for a COD4 game to start. After some “serious” thinking, my answer is….I’m not sure.

    Call of Duty: World at War

    Its yes and no, at least in my opinion. Its a yes because I think existing COD players may switch to the new game, permanently. As more people migrate to the new game, the COD 4 servers will not have as many players to start games. And you need a minimum of 6 players for a game to start unless you play 1v1, otherwise you will just be waiting. Also, unlike COD: WaW where 4 or less people is enough to get a game going in co-op mode which COD4 lacks. Again this is just my guess and I hope I’m wrong.

    Call of Duty: World at War Collector's Edition

    On the other hand, I also think both may be able to “co-exist” because they are two games taking places in two different time periods with one being in World War time and the other in modern days. Some people might still prefer the modern weapons/time period while some might jump the boat and play in the World War period. I personally prefer the modern days and the weapons. I don’t think there will be a red dot sight in World War 1/2, which makes it hard for me to aim. (yea I rely heavily on that to aim when I use a rifle like G36, unless I use a sub machine gun like P90) But even aiming wasn’t the problem, I still prefer modern time. Just a personal preference.

    Either outcome will most likely NOT disappoint any of us COD fans. And again with the co-op feature, it will probably enhance rather than degrading the series. I hope a demo release will be out sometime in the end of October or first week of November (comes out in Nov 11th for US and 14th for Europe) so that we can have a better idea if this game is really worth the $59.99.

    Just my daily thought and I will now continue on with my debate whether I should get this game or not. What are YOUR thoughts on this?

  • Halo Wars – something I wish the PlayStation 3 ...
    By on October 4th, 2008 | 2 Comments2 Comments Comments

    Gametrailers.com has just released this amazing 3+ minutes long movie clip, probably an intro or some cut scenes? The clip is really realistic and tells the story behind Halo Wars, which is the first RTS or real time strategy game of the series. I am very happy that they have decided to come up with something different other than yet another Halo first person shooter, not that I’m bashing the games mind you. I just think that this release will attract more gamers, specifically the RTS gamers to the Halo series as well.

    Unfortunately this game is for XBox360 only and maybe for the PC as well. PlayStation 3 users will either have to drool over it, like me. Or get yourself the XBox360 or hope the game will come out for PC.

    In the mean time, check this 3+ minutes long movie clip out from Gametrailers.com

  • Call of Duty 4 vs Call of Duty 5
    By on September 28th, 2008 | 3 Comments3 Comments Comments

    Call of Duty 5 will be released on November 11th for US and November 14th for Europe. From watching the trailers on Gametrailers.com This game might be better in terms of game play and graphics. The game features 4 player co-op game play which is something I really want to have and the graphics have improved and got bloodier. The reason why I said “might” is because as long as I haven’t played it, I don’t see a point to judge a game based solely on trailers.

    I’ve been asking myself do I want another COD game that takes place in the past? And most importantly do I have time to play COD 4 AND 5. As far as I can tell, COD 4 is more than enough for my daily online multiplay needs. And honestly I prefer modern to futuristic over games taking place during the World War 1/2 time periods. Something like Halo and Gears of War (Haze was horrible based on the demo I played). I just think we have enough of those and should focus more on the modern time if not in the future.

    Again after watching those trailers, COD 5 is certainly a great game, it might or might not be better than COD 4, I guess time will tell and it really differs from person to person. For those that are fans of WW1/2 then I think COD 5 will probably suit them better. Hopefully when Call of Duty 6 comes out the game will take place somewhere in the future and/or in space which is what I ultimately am looking for in the next COD series.

    As for COD 5, well, I will keep debating with myself whether its worth buying or not. A demo would be nice! :)

  • More Resistance 2 trailer for PlayStation 3
    By on September 24th, 2008 | No Comments Comments

    First I heard Resistance 2 will support up to 60 players in a single online multiplayer game. I was really excited about it. Now after watching THIS trailer, the CEO said in this trailer from Gametrailers.com that it will also support 8 player co-op mode. Wow this game is just getting better and better. (Excuse me if you guys all knew about the co-op mode already though). I am really looking forward to this game which is set to be out on November 4th.

    As a somewhat related note, Tomb Raider: Underworld will be released one day before Resistance 2. October and November are going to be two busy months for gaming because Little Big Planet will probably take up most of my video gaming time once it comes out.
