Sigh.

Well here it is folks, EA’s latest multi-million dollar ‘hey we’re cool like COD’ shooter. Yes EA has made it incredibly easy to be cynical about their big releases what with their corporate attitude & business practices both being what they are, but despite all that is Medal of Honor: Warfighter worth a look?

Aliens At War – Melbourne Call Of Duty Launch Event

Activision and Alienware are teaming up to host a huge event in Melbourne, Australia for the launch of Call Of Duty: World At War.

Running 24 hours long this November 8th, the event is looking to be a real blast. Not only will Call Of Duty: World At War be playable across 100 XBOX 360s and 100 Alienware PC rigs throughout the event but a plethora of freebies will also be provided.

If excessive quantities of game time with the biggest upcoming unreleased First Person Shooter on the horizon isn’t enough, and if the bags of swag don’t satiate for the full day event, Laser Skirmish will also be running for anyone wanting to bring their real A game.

It’s not just World At War either. Activision will be rolling out other titles such as the unreleased 007: Quantum Of Solace video game and Alienware will be sure to impress with displays of their top-notch PC gaming rigs.

At only $29 there’s no reason to miss this so check out the official site or buy tickets here.

Hit the jump for the full flier. Continue reading Aliens At War – Melbourne Call Of Duty Launch Event

Review: Haze (PS3)



Free Radical is an interesting developer for two reasons. The first point of interest is that the company was founded by several former employees of Rare. Back on the Nintendo 64, Rare redefined the first person shooter with Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. Free Radical went on to create their own first person shooter series called Time Splitters, which was praised for its fast paced multiplayer action. Free Radical also created Second Sight, a fantastic game which combined the stealth genre with psychic powers.

The other interesting thing about Free Radical is you could always tell their games apart by their signature art style with subtly caricatured characters. Free Radical has now made their foray into the next generation of consoles with Haze – another first person shooter. While Haze unfortunately lacks Free Radicals iconic art style, it still has ties to Second Sight for having a story filled with conspiracies, corruption and corporations.
