Medal of Honor: Warfighter - EA Australia’s PC LAN Night (OXCGN Preview)

OXCGN:

"EA Australia put on a thematic PC LAN night highlighting their upcoming shooter Medal of Honor: Warfighter and generously invited OXCGN along. The promised fun, coupled with beer and pizza, is something we don’t ever resist!

Set up in a secluded room in their Sydney offices decorated with a ghillie suit, ammo boxes, helmet and various countries’ flags (sort of like a militaristic Olympic stadium), EA kicked off the night by showcasing a multiplayer walkthrough video that was at this year’s E3.

The multiplayer code we got our hands on was the same as the E3 I was at, however EA Australia put this together for Australians who may have missed out and I’d jump at any chance to play the game again anyway."

It sounds like quite the LAN event.

BadCircuit4336d ago

I hope there is split screen on console version. I don't do LANs but I would enjoy the odd at home with mates fun like I do with MW3.

PixL4336d ago

It's 2012 and people still play split screen?

AusRogo4336d ago

Lol Regardless of what year it is, if games actually did have split screen these days, then yes people would still play split screen.

Eske4336d ago

I still do split screen once in a while. Less so than in college, but enough that I'm always happy to see the feature.

9 Video Game Sequels So Bad They Killed The Series

Alongside death, taxes and terrible Adam Sandler movies, video game sequels are just another crushing inevitability of life. Sequels and franchises are the lifeblood of the industry, so you can bet any halfway successful game will be aiming towards at least five more follow-ups and spin-offs in pursuit of more delicious money.

Yet even major franchises tend to run themselves into the ground eventually, where they can either reboot themselves and come back stronger than ever (think the new Tomb Raider games) or stay buried in the past.

Old school would be Wolfenstein, Doom, Hexen, Duke Nukem, and Rise of the Triad.

More recently Half-Life 2, BioShock (original), Wolfenstein the new order, Timesplitters 2, Medal of Honour.

Some personal favourites Singularity, Resistance series, Killzone Series, Bulletstorm, Dishonored.

Kallisti2875d ago (Edited 2875d ago )

Duke Nukem was a side scroller on Dos

@robition Duke Nukem wasn't a FPS 'til the 3rd one, Duke Nukem 3D

robtion2875d ago

Sure. Talking about FPS's here though.

Great concept(Nectar) and fun but a bit of an iffy execution and didn't live up to its promise. I finished it at launch. Shame they didn't quite get it right.

5 Video Games That Ruined Their Franchises Badly

The video game industry is one based on the backs of its scholarly properties. Like movies and books, it’s a space that draws vigorously on strong sequels and innovative new thoughts. Notwithstanding, not all sequels surpass the enormity of their forerunners, and a chosen few of them check the start of the end for their →

Assassin's Creed series was ruined after Black Flag, Ubisoft made it annually game. I played Dead Space 1 and 2; were awesome but Dead Space 3 failed to make gosip. As MOH Warfighter was good game

NukaCola2930d ago

Black Flag was the redeemer after 3. ACIV is my favorite of the series. Unity was bad, Syndicate is actually pretty good. So they are up and down. As for Dead Space, I thought the original was like Uncharted series. The first one was a great story and a little rough, but #2 was incredible through and through. Uncharted 3 is awesome, unfortunately DS3 was indeed a terrible terrible game. Warfighter was a good game, but aren't we all burned out on shooters???

Stupid2930d ago

That's right Assassin's Creed series had awesome games till AC Black Flag, AC III was terrible

monkeyDzoro2930d ago

I disagree on AC Black Flag. Black Flag was a good PIRATE game but a very mediocre AC.

I preferred Revelations over Brotherhood. AC Brotherhood had such a boring story while AC Revelations tied everything up very well for Ezio and Altair, if I was going to pick a game where it all started going downhill for me it would be AC 3 but despite that AC 1,2, Brotherhood, Revelations, 4, Rogue and Syndicate are all good games.

RondoMachete2930d ago

Lost Planet as far as I remember went like dead space with the third game (round based type play) it just felt like it was just a map clearing game with multiple horde survival. Call Of duty went and died long ago. Ghosts didn't help its cause but now we have three development houses it's going from bad to worse. GTA to me anyway was saved with five to me the driving up until then was awful. Mario and sonics died along time ago to in my eyes.

Bobafret2930d ago

These titles get worse and worse.
