He said further that the studio “remains an important part” of its future plans for the CoD franchise and will also continue to support the remaining employees of the company.

West and Zampella, after their dismissal, sued the publisher. They claimed that they were owed royalty payments in MW2 sales.

Activision counter-suit the two for breach of contract. It claimed that both the executives secretly flew to Northern California for meeting the closest competitor of Activision. However, Acitivision did not mentioned the name of the competitor. Well, the largest publisher in the region is Electronic Arts.

Experience on beta version shared by a writer

September 26th, 2009

modern-warfare2-multiplayer

While browsing on the net to get some personal experiences of people who have played the beta version of Modern Warfare 2, I came across a good article titled ‘Modern Warfare 2 – Multiplayer hands-on’ written by Renato Leon on zikkir.com.

He says in his article that he was probably influenced by the theater screen, surround sound and free Mountain Dew after playing the beta version for few hours. He starts the article as, “Modern Warfare 2 is the shit, to put it briefly.”

Leon said that Infinity Ward could have walked on the success of CoD4 and instead they could have released a moderately updated game with some new maps and weapons, but they have updated everything and yet not they did not loose the charm of the original.

About the game the author writes that everything is more intense in it. The sounds of ricochest, bullets zipping, bloody deaths, shaking explosions and everything is twice as powerful. Though Modern Warfare 2 is similar to Call of Duty 4, but the textures of the game are more crisper and the visual is more emphatic.

He writes further that the new weapons, perks and all other additions have increased the strategies and techniques in the game. The maps are not dull. As a whole, all the additions maintain the usual level of IW’s ambiance and factual accuracy.

You can’t shoot with riot shield out

September 23rd, 2009

modernwarfare2There were few important interviews of Infinity Ward last week in Los Angeles at the Modern Warfare 2 event. Some more information has been detailed on the game’s multiplayer. Items such as the riot shield were more talked about and assurances about martyrdom were also given by Infinity Ward.

In fact one of the most visible additions to the game’s multiplayer is the riot shield and it allows the players to completely block enemy fire. A good reason has been given by Infinity Ward behind this item and it has been also assured that it won’t break the game.

Todd Alderman, the multiplayer design lead said, “There is even something in there for people that can’t shoot…You get the riot shield and your job is to help your team.”

Fans of Modern Warfare 2 are worried about the riot shield that it may unbalance the game.

Infinity Ward says that the shield will only act as a primary weapon. With it players will be able to hold it with pistols. To it Alderman said, “So when you have the riot shield out, you can’t shoot. All you are doing is blocking.”

Well, there has been no word found in the interview on how this might be affected by a return of the overkill perk from CoD4 that allow the players to carry two primary weapons at once.

On e-bay Prestige Edition is tagged far more

September 20th, 2009

ebay

When we carried an article on July 16th this year titled Prestige Edition tagged $149.99, there was a comment reading “I am not gonna get the prestige edition. It just costs too much…”

Well, such comments and reactions were common when Activision announced the price of the Prestige Edition.

Now we find that scalpers are even charging more than that for Modern Warfare 2: Prestige Edition. Shifty-eyed con-merchants have now descended upon eBay with their ill-gotten wars after, as we know, it is sold out in United Kingdom.

And… the worst part of it is that people are in fact paying these prices. Take a look here.

One of the sellers even has pushed his luck in an attempt to charge $250 for the full kit of Modern Warfare 2: Prestige Edition.

The best part… it is a prove that fans really need the game.

Well, do comment.
