Medal of Honor Beta Impressions

The Medal of Honor preorder-only beta just ended, and I wanted to share my thoughts on it. If you don’t know yet, the Medal of Honor multiplayer is a mix between Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Whether or not this is a good mix is subject to opinion. Personally, I think that the mix does not work very well. The things that made Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 unique have been lost in Medal of Honor, and as a result, the game is less than it could be. In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the destructible environments made the game more dynamic, and in Modern Warfare 2, the perks made the game more customizable. These are both things not in Medal of Honor.

City of Heroes Going Rogue now in Beta

The mighty and virtuous were summoned to assist Paragon Studios this month with the Beta test of the new City of Heroes expansion pack: Going Rogue, which challenges players to battle for publishing rights to Sarah Palin’s next book. Okay, despite the poor choice of name, Going Rogue actually takes place in a mirror universe that is ruled by an evil tyrant seeking total world domination.  No, I’m still not talking about Sarah Palin!

Shogun 2: Total War Gameplay Trailer

Shogun 2 will be the seventh full Total War game, and the first since this years Napoleon: Total War saw great success. The original Shogun: Total War was the first in the Total War series, and the development team at the Creative Assembly have been keen to reiterate that Shogun 2 will return the series to its roots; a full circle, so to speak. This will firstly, and most obviously, see a return to feudal Japan as the setting, and consequently see a slight reduction in terms of scale and the different types of units. Fear not, strategy fans, this reduction should be seen more as a streamlining: the smaller number of units will have far more defined roles on the battlefield.

More Blue Space Lesbians in Mass Effect DLC

The team behind Mass Effect 2 has released a series of downloadable missions that let players fight rogue virtual intelligence, pilot new vehicles, and earn the loyalty of new crew members.  Now they’re finally giving us something we want: More blue space lesbians!  Or “Asari” as Bioware calls them.

No game can have too many blue space lesbians, and the first Mass Effect game was nice enough to give you two chances for girl-on-alien sex.  Mass Effect 2 gave you another pair of Asari, unfortunately one was utterly frigid, and the other had a lethal telepathic venereal disease.  Sure, players who are into girl-on-girl fun could romance a human crewmember, but what about those of us with a case of blueberry fever?

In the upcoming mission pack Lair of the Shadow Broker, players can once again team up with Liara T’Soni, one of the Asari romantic options from the first game.  Liara had a brief appearance in Mass Effect 2, including a short quest, but there was no time for sexual shenanigans.  Hopefully that oversight will be corrected in the new mission pack.
