MW3’s Davis Family Vacation Scene Is Bound To Cause A Rumpus.

The new Call Of Duty game, scheduled for release this coming Tuesday, is sure to cause controversy with more than just one or two overpaid tabloid journalists.

The video below, (SPOILER ALERT), shows a cut scene from the game entitled ‘Davis Family Vacation‘ and is played out entirely through the husband/father’s POV with a hand held camera. He’s filming his daughter and wife enjoying their holiday on the streets of London when…KABLOOEY!

We’re a cynical bunch but we couldn’t help but think this was more of a deliberate move by the game’s developers to drum up some scandal, (nothing sells a game more than controversy), rather than expand or enrich the storyline. This isn’t the first time developers Infinity Ward or publishers Activision have rolled out near-the-knuckle content, Modern Warfare 2 came under critical fire back in 2009, when the infamous ‘No Russian‘ airport sequence sent journalists positively mental, as players had the option of partaking in a massacre of innocent civilians at a Russian airport.

What we can’t understand is why a child being blown to smithereens or a horrific bloodbath in a public facility is considered palatable enough content for a PG-13 rated game by Infinity Ward and Activision, yet for some strange reason they get all offended that their good name may be sullied if a porn star turns up at their game’s launch party?

Violence good. Sex bad!

That said, there’s nowt here you wouldn’t see in a Hollywood blockbuster. They’ve been killing off kids for years. Take Macauly Culkin in My Girl for example, they executed the poor wee mite by a swarm of angry bees. You callous Hollywood bastards!

 

 

 

Modern Warfare 2 Fan Film: Find Makarov.

It was only a matter of time before somebody put together a live action fan film for Infinity Ward’s first person shooter Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and it looks nothing short of amazing.

Find Makarov was made by Toronto based marketing firm We Can Pretend to emphasise that a film version of the highly successful gaming franchise is actually achievable. In fact a first person POV movie of this nature could have massive potential by drawing in millions of gaming fans while staying faithful to the original property. If you want to know more about Find Makarov then chart a course for the short film’s Facebook Page.

Modern Warfare 3 comes with realistic salute inertia.
