Call of Duty has been around as a game for a while, but the launch of Call of Duty – Advanced Warfare combined with the momentum of PS4 and XBox means that this Xmas will open up a whole new world of gaming and points at the future of entertainment.
The Game produced with a larger budget than many movies, and with a more profitable business model points to the future.
The Game itself is awesome.. well if you’re able to see it for what it is.. a mix of simulation, experience and interactivity.
There is also a lot to be said to the future it is pointing at.. we live now in 2014.. in a world of drones, of robots, or remote AI. The inclusion of Kevin Spacey – albeit mainly his voice – and for those of us who love House of Cards.. and we do hear it at FreshAndOnPoint – both the original and the Netflix Reboot.. well it’s all a bit too close to comfort… which makes for a compelling storyline..
We’ve come a long way from Metal Gear Solid.. and that first move into the holographic world.. that we pointed at last year..
So.. check out the graphics and fluidity of millions of players.. and think about what’s coming..

Donaeo is back again with a new album called Indigo child.
A kingpin where all things UK dance are concerned, Donaeo (meaning Gift from God) has been a staple fixture on the underground since his anthemic debut ‘My Philosophy (Bounce)’, made when he was just 16, aired back in 2001. Regarded not just as a producer, his forays into singing, rapping and songwriting have gone on to shape the star that’s in many ways still yet to be fully revealed.
Born in Ghana where he lived for just a year, 20-something Donaeo is actually the guy you’re more likely to find locked in the studio when he’s not performing. While you may have thrown a hand in the air to more recent classics like ‘Party Hard’, ‘Devil In A Blue Dress’ and ‘African Warrior’, you may not know his co-writing credits include Yasmin ‘On My Own’, Mz Bratt ‘Selecta’ and Ms Dynamite ‘What You Talking About?’ He also penned the theme tune for the final series of Channel 4’s Dubplate Drama alongside Wretch32. Other standout moments include his recent feature on the haunting Breakage cut ‘Speechless’ and Shy FX’s ‘Raver’ with Kano and Roses Gabor.
It’s a far cry from his early career, where in the 00’s Donaeo signed to Sticky’s ‘Social Circles’ record label at 17-years old – it was supposed to be the beginning of a much-expected solo career. But with label politics leading to a falling out with the bosses, Donaeo found himself stuck in a deal that he couldn’t get out of and was left in a position with very few options.
As a result, aged 23, in a bid to work out his next move, Donaeo decided to take a break from music, flitting between various retail jobs (“Cash Converters was the worst”) and a stint at a marketing company where ironically enough he worked alongside the then unknown Taio Cruz. By 2008 Donaeo decided the time was right to return and his independently released debut album Party Hard ensued the following year. Turning a hand to promoting too, in 2010 alongside Ctrl.Alt.Shift and a slew of acts, Donaeo helped raise over £3,000 for the Haiti emergency appeal.
Preferring to work from his home studio, which suits his ADHD-related tendencies that have inspired the workings of his new material, he still credits his best ideas to those he conjures up riding on a bus or train. Now, after two years since his last LP, Donaeo’s preparing the release of two new albums in the next year. This summers release, Indigo Child, a title that doubles up as pseudoscientific label given to those who are claimed to possess special or unusual traits or abilities, will be a free giveaway for fans.
“Last year I feel like I found myself and it’s kind of like this; you can look at ADHD in two ways… You can take pills for it or be an Indigo Child. The only difference between me and someone else is that I’ve got a lot of excess energy but I’ve found a way to channel it. I’m about dance music and this album is definitely that.” Donaeo
The recently released lead track ‘Swagger’ is in keeping with mixing the old with the new, channeling inspiration from the likes of The Prodigy, James Brown, Frank Ocean and Shy FX, where song writing is concerned you’ll find Donaeo also nodding towards The Script and Coldplay. Despite nailing a lauded Talib Kwali feature on the forthcoming ‘Honey’, Donaeo’s unique formula continues to encapsulate everything that’s good about the broadened British soundscapes in 2011.
A follow up album, which will get a full release, will be out in Spring 2012 and will feature collaborations with Shy FX, Breakage and more.
This is definitely FreshAndOnPoint and a perfect pick me for the cold autumn here in London.
