  • Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta launched October 6th - Full Release Soon After

    Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta Launched

    All you FPS fans out there are getting extra lucky with this year's lineup; with Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 set for release over the upcoming months we've already got hours of gameplay available at our hands. But for any of you still not satisfied, Warfighter, the new Medal of Honor game will be set to release very soon!

    Medal of Honor will hopefully offer a gameplay experience that adds something new from the crowd of recent military shooter releases, and if we're to go by the impressive gameplay footage and conceptual ideas released by Danger Close Games, we have reason to keep our hopes high.

    At E3 2012 Warfighter was shown by Danger Close to include in-depth and realistic military scenarios mimicking real-life terrorist intervention missions:

    "Medal of Honor Warfighter puts players in the boots of today's most highly trained and skilled warriors to experience missions that have a dotted line to real world terrorist events. This is Tier 1 on a global scale, featuring real world hotspots in the single-player campaign and introducing international Tier 1 Operators in multiplayer. This groundbreaking move gives players a window into the look and style of elite soldiers from 10 different countries around the world. With Medal of Honor Warfighter, gamers can represent their nation's Special Operations Forces on the multiplayer battlefield. Medal of Honor introduces a new mode where the world's best-of-the-best warriors go head-to-head in online competition."

    Warfighter will be running on the all-new Frostbite 2 engine so expect destroyable scenery, smart AI, and stunning visuals on both the Xbox and PS3.

    Warfighter is set to release on October 23rd, but if you want to play the game beforehand, grab yourself a modded controller and download the free open Beta from the Xbox marketplace.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfigher Gets Linkin Park Involved

    EA has made their marketing strategy clear. They want to beat the reigning champ, Call of Duty, or at least take a chunk out of its market share. Every first person shooter wants to be CoD and who can blame them? The money CoD rakes in every year is unbelievable.

    Interestingly enough, this time EA is sticking to The Danger Close team making Medal of Honor Warfighter as grounded and real as possible in hope that it would attract the gamers. They believe that gamers who are looking for the authentic feel of a modern battlefield might prefer Warfighter over Black Ops 2. They have based this assumption on the fact that Treyarch has taken a very futuristic approach with BO2 which might not be well received by gamers. Some diehard CoD fans have actually voiced out their concerns regarding this in forums and blogs all over the internet.

    If true, this could very well be MoH's year. It is obvious that MoH may surpasses BO2 thanks to its amazing Frostbite 2 engine. MoH is supposed to actually look better than even BF3. We have all stared at awe at one point or other at the destructive capability of the Frost Bite 2. To add to it all they have also represented 12 Tier 1 teams across 10 countries in Warfighter. EA and The Danger Close team are hoping that this might play to the patriotic side of players and get them involved in a whole new level, much like in Fifa.

    Recently it was revealed that EA has gotten one of the most famous rock bands in the world, Linkin Park, involved in their project in an attempt to enhance the emotional and authentic military experience they are trying to deliver with MoH Warfighter.

    Danger Close revealed their cross-collaboration with Linkin Park and that Mike Shanoda, co-lead vocalist and co-producer of Linkin Park, has already composed original in-game scores for MoH Warfighter which were specifically made to "add depth and emotion to an already intense gameplay experience."

    EA also produced Linkin Park's new music video - Castle of Glass which will also be included in the game. Only time will tell how much of an effect this cross-collaboration would have on sales of MoH Warfighter. For now check out the following videos.

  • Next-Gen Call of Duty in Development?

    Next-Gen Call of Duty Rumors

    I guess there is no stopping the big bad Call of Duty machine. Even before Black Ops 2 is out there are already indications of another installment that will most probably be available for the next-gen consoles. There is no indication whether it will be the very next iteration of CoD but if it is the case then it would mean the next gen consoles are most definitely coming out in 2013.

    There are multiple job listings and a resume from Infinity Ward that suggests that the studio's next game will for the next gen-consoles. According to the resume of Andrew Aye, Modern Warfare 3 engineer, Infinity Ward is currently working on an unannounced game which will be a available on PC with DirectX11 support, Xbox 360 and PS3.

    The game will also be available on TBA (to be announced) platforms. The TBA platforms as anyone can guess are most definitely the next-gen consoles which have been heavily rumored to support DirectX-11.

    This new reveal is not that surprising considering the fact that this isn't the first time we have seen evidence indicating Infinity Ward's next game will be on the next-gen consoles. There was a job listing put up in January which mentioned work on "next-gen technologies".

    Currently available listings on Infinity Ward's official site show that the studio is currently looking for a Senior Technical VFX artist "[who can] raise the bar for visual effects on current and next generation hardware” and a Senior Engineer "[to] implement gameplay systems and features for an exciting unannounced next generation console title."

    For now IW has been busy creating downloadable content for Modern Warfare 3 and is currently working on DLC that is supposed to be launched in September. So what do you think gamers - is it MW 4? Do you think they will be revealing what they are working in the upcoming Gamescom?

    If you're a fan of Evil and Call of Duty then you must have our Master Mod. Our Master Mod is the only modded controllers with 20+ mods. Mods designed for some of the following games:

    Modern Warfare 3
    Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
    Battlefield 3
    Gears of War 3
    Call of Duty: Black Ops
    Rapid Fire compatible with ALL major third and first-person shooters.
    + More!!!!

    Don't waste your time on a normal controller when all you need is an Evil upgrade.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter vs Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

    Warfighter to Compete with Black Ops 2

    It seems every year now we gamers get to witness a clash between FPS superstars. Last year it was Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3 and this year it is Black Ops 2 vs Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Both these games are direct sequels to their respective predecessors and both of them show great promise.

    Since 2003 Call of Duty has been the reigning champ with little or no competition. Even though there are a lot of gamers annoyed by the COD franchise now because of the similar gameplay and old engine, they still continue to break sales records every year. It's no wonder the franchise doesn't seem too eager to set itself apart from their tried and tested formula.

    This is where Battlefield and MoH come into play. These guys desperately want to get to the top and that's why they are trying to improve on any and all aspects of the genre. We have all seen how amazing the Frostbite 2 engine looks and its potential for destructive environments. This year's MoH is expected to actually be better looking (slightly) than BF3.

    Not only is MoH bringing a better graphics to the table they are also bringing their secret weapon - globalization. Seems The Danger Close team has taken inspiration from Fifa in becoming more 'global'.

    In one of our previous articles we gave the complete list of the twelve Tier 1 Teams that were available from a total of ten different countries. The Danger Close team is banking on the local appeal of these teams and hoping the patriotism factor would kick in to get people that much more involved with game and the overall experience.

    Also another key difference between Black Ops 2 MoH this year is that MoH is much more grounded while Black Ops 2 (being set in the future) has gone a bit high-tech. A lot of fans have already expressed their dissatisfaction with Black Ops regarding this.

    But no matter what the online polls say or how many complaints there are, CoD has always come out on top. With this year's Black Ops being termed as the MOST ambitious of all CoD games, MoH has to bring its A game in order to have any chance of competing.

    It is obvious that there is no way that MoH can take the throne this year but, having a solid run will definitely help the franchise get a bigger cut the next time. Maybe in time we will see BF or MoH become the top dog but till then I hope the competition keeps on increasing. The stronger the competition, the better it is for us gamers.

    If you aren't sure which of these titles you will be picking up, don't fret. Our modded controllers are likely to be compatible with both titles. If you already have our Adjustable controller or our Master Mod you can fine tune our Adjustable setting to have rapid fire on day 1 of either release.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter - Multiplayer Details

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter Multiplayer

    There isn't a TON of info available regarding the multiplayer but, there has been some nifty details discovered over the last few days and I thought I might sum it up.

    First of all, the 12 Tier 1 operators from a total of 10 countries that we will be able to get our hands on in the multiplayer have been confirmed:

    SAS - British Special Air Service Regiment
    SEAL - US Navy's primary Special Operation Force
    SFOD-D - US Army's primary Counter Terrorist Force
    OGA - US' Other Government Agencies is a mix elites from different backgrounds
    JTF2 - Canada's elite CT force - Joint Task Force 2
    GROM - Poland's elite CT Force
    KSK - Germany's CT Force
    SASR - Australian Army's premier SOF
    UDT - South Korea's UDT/Seals an elite SOF
    FSK - Norway's primary SOF
    SOG - Sweden's elite SOF
    Spetsnaz - Russia's special purpose CT force

    The option of being able to represent you own country is definitely going to bring about some patriotism and with that some added intensity. What I am waiting for is to see how these teams are different teams and which one is the right one for me!

    MoH: Warfighter is also going to incorporate something called Fire Teams which would pair you up with another player. This would not only help you survive but also add a layer of strategy, team play and tactics. It is essentially a sleeker version of BF's Squad mechanic. If you die, you will spawn right next to your partner. Taking it a step further, team members will be able to spot each other's outline through buildings etc. That way even if you two split up, you will always know where your partner is.

    Final thing I want to mention is the multiplayer trailer that was released. I don't know about you guys, but to me it looked amazing. Thanks to the Frostbite 2 engine the graphics look superb. EA is claiming that MoH: Warfighter is actually going to look better than BF3!

    The action also looks fast paced but that of course is thanks to the editing. What really got me going are the sounds, it really gets you pumped! I especially love the way the whole camera shakes because of nearby explosions, fantastic. Really get the impact across.

    Well the MoH: Warfighter is set to release on the 23rd of October this year and I can't wait to find out more. I really hope this iteration will make me happier than Medal of Honor 2010.  Check out the multiplayer trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xG9T6h4foA

     

     

    Have you pre-ordered Medal of Honer: Warfighter or Black Ops 2? If you have, you will definitely need a modded controller. Choose our Stealth Adjustable Rapid Fire Controller with MW3/BF3 functions and you will get 10 rapid fire pre-sets and our adjustable rapid fire mod compatible with all major shooters in addition to exclusive mods compatible with Black Ops. Don't find yourself on the bottom of those leaderboards with a normal controller, upgrade to an Evil Controller.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter Shows Off the Frostbite 2 Engine

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter

    Medal of Honor is posing some serious competition against Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 this year. The Frostbite 2 engine makes that game stand out from previous shooters. It looks absolutely gorgeous and seems Danger Close are really trying to achieve new heights with this game.

    Check out the campaign gameplay demo:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baS1CiL_rjU

    Everything is destroyable and shatters into tiny bits on repeated fire. Even the chandeliers swing in reaction to the shots being fired! CoD's old engine might just cost them this time around (probably not).

    Warfighter is also set to bring an international experience to both online and offline gameplay as the developers Danger Close are incorporating 12 different Tier 1 military teams from 10 different countries in the game. It’s a cool concept, giving everyone a chance to represent their country.

    Also I like the little bits of detail they have added, like the different choices when breaching a door. You have choices from kicking the door down to throwing a frag grenade or flashbang. Depending on what method you choose the following gameplay will be different.

    The game is set to be released on the 23rd of October 2012, almost 2 weeks before Black Ops 2 comes out. A smart move I might add since it is nearly impossible to directly compete with Call of Duty, especially this time when Treyarch is adamantly claiming that Black Ops 2 would be the biggest game of the franchise.

    If you are excited for both Medal of Honer: Warfighter and Black Ops 2 you will need a modded controller. Choose our Stealth Adjustable Rapid Fire Controller with MW3/BF3 functions and you will get 10 rapid fire pre-sets compatible with all major shooters in addition to exclusive mods compatible with Black Ops. These mods are likely to be fully functioning in Black Ops 2, so be prepared for the release by ordering one these controllers today.

  • Spec Ops: The Line - Multiplayer Gameplay

    Spec Ops: The Line - Online Multiplayer Details

    Today we will be taking a look at the multiplayer aspect of Spec Ops: The Line. Nowadays almost all games have to have some sort of multiplayer especially if it is a first person or third person shooter.

    Mutliplayer components these days are mainly used to increase the value of the game itself. They not only increase the allure of the games but also significantly increase the length of the game. Sadly, sometimes they are just sloppily made and do nothing more than frustrate players. I will just present you with my opinion of the multiplayer and whether it is good or not, you can be the judge of that.

    First of all, they have added a lot of customization ability to the game, perks and weapons that can be unlocked by gaining more experience and reaching higher levels; pretty much a standard protocol in most shooters nowadays. You also have various customizations such as armor and kits.

    Something new they have incorporated is the environmental effects which I fancied. Sandstorms can hit at anytime leaving you pretty much blind and vulnerable to enemies. At those times you have to rely on stealth and be extra observant to detect enemy locations from things such as muzzle flashes.

    Players also have different classes to choose from that give off different area of effect auras. That adds another layer of strategy in which you decide the right combinations of classes that you want for your team. Since the range of these buffs is limited to certain distance it also encourages more team based gameplay.

    Another cool thing is the ability to hurl rocks that will be perceived by enemies as grenades. This sort of faking is not only a cool way of highlighting the desert location, but is also an effective method in forcing your enemies out of cover.

    Still, to me the whole essence of a game such as this is the gun combat. This feature if not up to par is a definite deal breaker for me. Fortunately, from the gameplay demo that I tagged below you can see that the guns do feel solid. Be sure to check out the demo below to get an idea for yourself.

    All in all, even though this is nothing revolutionary, they did try and add previously unseen elements and the resulting multiplayer does seem like a pretty sound component which will definitely be a plus to have along with the core campaign.

    Spec Ops: The Line - Multiplayer

    Don't forget to order a modded controller from us. All of our rapid fire controllers come with 10 preset rapid fire speeds compatible with Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and over a dozen other titles. If you would like to adjust your own rate of fire for your favorite gun or to have controller compatible with all major First and Third Person Shooter releases be sure to upgrade to our Stealth Adjustable Controller with 15,000 firing rates to choose from.

  • E3 2012: Spec Ops: The Line - Campaign & Gameplay Demo

    New Shooter, Spec Ops: The Line


    I don't know about you guys but, I had no idea that that 2K was coming out with a new Spec Ops game until I actually saw the game demo at E3. The new game is titled Spec Ops: The Line which has been officially dated to be released on the 26th of June, 2012.

    The main story takes place in the carcass of the once flourishing Dubai, now just a shell of its formal glory due to massive sandstorms that left it in tatters. The lead character is going to be Captain Walker whose mission is to rescue John Konrad, a well-respected Colonel of the US Army.

    John Konrad and his team went MIA during their last mission which was to help any remaining civilians escape Dubai. Well much to Walker's surprise he finds Konrad was very much alive but, completely insane. The delusional Colonel now considers the ruins of Dubai his home. So your rescue mission quickly changes to a mission to survive Konrad and his armed forces.

    The game is like any other standard 3rd person shooter but, the graphics do look great thanks to the modified Unreal engine. The interesting thing about the game is the involvement of the environment. Sandstorms can hit at any point forcing you to change your tactics.

    Additionally you can alter the environment to your benefit, for example in one part of the game you destroy the glass windows in a room full of hostiles which causes sand to pile into the room killing the enemies. This method however kills the civilians too whom you could have saved by taking out the enemies head on. The game will be filled with such situations where you have to make decision on what is you believe is more morally correct.

    Well the developers mentioned they intend to make this game "the most provocative shooter" we have ever played. It will be interesting to see how they intend to use these moral decisions and how deep these decisions will be intertwined within the core game.

    We will keep you posted as more news arrives about the squad based gameplay and other details. Till then enjoy the game demo tagged below and keep an eye out for a following article on the multiplayer aspect of Spec Ops: The line.

    Game Demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldEEl4PYFM0

    Based off what we've seen in the demo you can count on our Adjustable Rapid Fire being compatible. Check out all of our modded controllers.

  • Black Ops 2: Zombies Details

    Black Ops 2: Zombies!

    All right, now let take a look into Zombies! Treyarch has officially confirmed that Zombies will make a comeback and it is going to be bigger and better than ever.

    First of all, Zombies will have more game modes aside from the standard round modes that we have seen in World at War and Black Ops. There also going to be specific tasks and objectives to complete in these levels this time around.

    Speaking of levels, this is one area where Zombies is getting a major overhaul. They are creating whole new worlds for zombies, massive ones. According to Mark, the whole Treyarch team has put a lot of effort and imagination into Zombies which allowed them to achieve amazing things. Mark exclaimed that Zombies is going to be like a separate game on its own which was originally intended to be shipped along with Black Ops 2.

    Finally the big reveal was that Zombies will now be incorporated into the multiplayer engine from the single player engine! Yes, this is exactly why they could make such massive improvements to Zombies. The multiplayer engine will allow more processing power and room to work with which translates to more game modes, twice the number of zombies and twice the number of co-op players (keep reading).

    Not only that, the multiplayer engine also opens up a world of new possibilities. There is one speculation that the maps available for the multiplayer will also be available for Zombies. Least of all, you won't have to worry about someone quitting and forcing you to restart the game. This was a huge issue in Black Ops, at least for me.

    Okay coming back to more players. It has officially been announced that a total of up to 8 players will be able to play Zombies together! Not only can you play together, you also get to play as two teams of players (4 vs 4), with zombies in the middle! WHAT?! This opens up so many more possibilities for new gameplay experiences!

    If you're a huge fan of Zombies for Black Ops, you may like to know that we have two products that are specifically up your alley. The first is the controller shown above. Our Zombie print, that is available here, but we also have 2 modded controllers that come equipped with our Auto Aim feature. These would include our Master Mod and Stealth Adjustable with MW3/BF3 Features.

    Auto Aim allows you to snap from one Zombie to another while you hold right trigger and fire away. With Auto Aim, zombies don't stand a chance.

  • Black Ops 2: Multiplayer Info

    More Black Ops 2 Gameplay info:

    Alright! I know why you all are here so let's dive straight into it!

    As always, Treyarch is really tight lipped about revealing anything about the multiplayer at this moment. They always like to tease people with the official multiplayer trailer which sadly for us, is not out yet. But, in an interview with Machinima, Mark Lamia the Studio Head at Treyarch mentioned some interesting details.

    Mark mentioned that they are really building Black Ops 2 Multiplayer from the ground up. They do not plan on adding to the existing framework of Black Ops but, intend to redefine it. He mentioned that players can expect to see them to "push the boundaries of the multiplayer pretty hard."

    What this means is that they are taking a look at every game mechanic, weapon upgrades, perks, kill streaks, map design, classes etc., and building them anew. He also mentioned the fact that we will be seeing a lot of new gameplay mechanics that have never been seen in the franchise.

    Currently a rumor is going around that instead of a create-a-class we will get a "point system" which would give us more freedom in picking combinations of weapons rather than the series of fixed weapons and equipment slots that we know so well. As the rumor goes, 10 points are allocated to each player which can be used to get whatever equipment and weapons one likes and ditch whatever he/she thinks is unnecessary. If this is true then it will open up a range of playing styles that we have never encountered before.

    Mark also kept on stressing the fact that they will be integrating elements that would facilitate players interacting, joining games and playing together. He said that they are taking the social scene into consideration and that they have developed the multiplayer based on how they see and feel the players want to play.

    The whole multiplayer is going to be set in the future, 2025, so we will get to play with all the high tech gadgets and drones along with the crazy weapons such as the sniper with which you can take out people behind cover.

    While you wait for more Black Ops 2 info be sure to play with our Stealth Adjustable v2 Controller that has adjustable rapid fire and 10 pre-set rapid fire speeds. As soon as it arrives you will have the fastest rapid on the planet for Black Ops, Modern Warfare 3, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and over a dozen other titles. Outside of our preset rapid fire it also comes with our Adjustable Rapid Fire setting so be sure to check out all of our modded controllers.
