Call of Duty

Call of Duty – Advanced Warfare

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..

Saints Row 3 Bank Robbery Mission 1

Ahh the gang from Stillwater is back again – how much we’ve been through together during the last five years.  We’ve seen them take control of their not so fair city from the likes of the Vice Kings, the Los Carnales, and the Westside Rollerz.  We’ve seen them Ultor Corporation to become the only dominant force left in Stillwater.  We’ve seen the highs and the lows of the stories of Shaundi, Pierce, Johnny Gat, and your own character – the Boss.  Throughout the previous two games, we’ve be exposed to a treasure trove of comedy gold both through random things happening in the game world, and through the scripted events and dialogue.  Everyone knew there was going to be a third, and it’s finally here – but does it live up to the standards that the first two set?

In Saint’s Row the Third, players again take on the role of “The Boss”, with plenty of backup from his comical crew – however this time the story departs the familiar city of Stillwater, and goes to the New York stylized city of Steelport (it even has its own Statue of Liberty-esqe monument).  From the very start of the game, you feel like a total bad-ass.  You’re thrown in the middle of a bank heist gone wrong, and you’re mowing people down like they were made of paper.  In short, you feel like “The Boss” should feel.  Throughout the next few minutes, you end up in prison with Johnny Gat and Shaundi (where Johnny waxes poetic about what the Saints have turned in to), and that’s where the Syndicate finds you.

The Syndicate bribes the cops to let you out, and then tries to get The Boss to turn over two thirds of the Saint’s territory in order to live.  Well if you’ve played the previous two games you know that the Saints won’t have any of that and a mid-air fight breaks out.  This leads to one of the craziest intro scenes I’ve played on a game in a long time (free fall gun battles for the win), and drops you off in said town of Steelport.  Now this all happens in the first twenty or so minutes of the game, so that should tell you how action packed it’s going to be right there.

I won’t get into any more plot, because while some of it you can see coming for miles, there are little twists here and there that are true joys to find out as they come.  What I can talk about though, is just how much fun this game really is.  If you’re not too worried about the realism of a game, and more about the fun factor – this is for you.  What other game has a special mode called “Whored Mode”, where you can be chased around by prostitutes in leather “geek suits” wielding long purple dildos.  Yes, it’s that kind of over the top fun that has been a staple of this entire series.

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Tom Cruise is back in December 2011 with Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol.

This looks like a good return to form for the franchise.

The architecture seems to be the real star and we can’t wait to see the screeners.
