Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 Arrives Nov 10 2009
©2009 Arthur Kotsopoulos
With Modern Warfare 2 being released on the 10th of November 2009, at the busy end of the year and competing with other big titles, it would seem that Infinity Ward are showing a dramatic intensity to grab our attention for their latest Call of Duty game.
But the latest E3 demo looked more like a film than a game…
During Microsofts Keynote yesterday Infinity Ward showed off what looked to be an awesome snow level in Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2 but whilst it looked great it heavily reminded me of too many other similar scenes.
I was left wondering if that was a good thing or a bad thing?

OXCGN Readers Game Of The Year
Your 2008 GOTY Choices Tallied!
© 2008 David Hilton:
Well if your choices are anything to go by, either the best Xbox 360 titles are usually released at the end of the year, or the freshest titles on your mind tend to get your vote. In any case the OXCGN readers have spoken!
Games like Guitar Hero, Brothers In Arms, Devil May Cry 4, and Battlefield: Bad Company barely rate a mention, while innovative XBLA games like Braid and Castle Crashers also aren’t considered in the Big League. Strategy games like Civilization Revolution and EndWar aren’t even close. Movie-linked games like Star Wars: Force Unleashed or Lego Batman aren’t good enough, and latecomers like Tomb Raider: Underworld and Prince of Persia were…well…too late, it seems.

Call Of Duty: World At War Launch Party
Melbourne’s Swinburne University opens its
doors for Activision to launch COD: WaW
Guest writer from OzBoxLive.com – When one of our team were unable to attend the Activision event, we asked the guys at OzBoxLive if they wouldn’t mind doing a little feature on it if they were heading over that way. Cam was nice enough to dedicate many hours to the task and slave away to bring you this report. Many thanks to the guys at OzBoxLive once again.

What one can say about the Call of Duty Franchise is that it is intense; the creators make it an experience rivaled by no other in the genre. This approach was given to the COD: world at war launch party. A 24 hour marathon event to celebrate the launch of this great new title.
Held in Melbourne at the Swinburne University, Hawthorn campus. This provided an unbelievable space under a state of the art under cover area in the middle of the university.
Launch party and girls after the jump . . .
