Medal of Honor site wants you to buy some guns

There is a clear line between videogame violence and real world violence, but that isn't going to keep Electronic Arts from trying to cross it. EA's official Medal of Honor: Warfighter ("The most authentic shooter") site is s...

Get a taste of Medal of Honor Warfighter's story

If you can look away from all of the "INCLUDES BETA ACCESS TO BATTLEFIELD 4" mentions, then you'll notice that Medal of Honor Warfighter will have a storyline. Odds are that this single-player will be far better than whateve...

Jimquisition: Let's end the FPS sausage-fest

According to some of the biggest first-person shooters on the market, women don't exist. Men give birth to men who become manly men and shoot stuff with man-guns. However, not only is that unrealistic, it's exclusionary, sil...

Electronic Arts accidentally revealed a Battlefield 4 pre-order bonus for Medal of Honor Warfighter this past weekend, then quickly went into denial mode. Of course, EA was just stalling until it could announce the game on it...

Origin promises Battlefield 4 beta with Medal of Honor

Electronic Arts has let slip that players who purchase Medal of Honor: Warfighter on Origin will gain access to Battlefield 4's beta. Bear in mind, of course, that EA hasn't even announced Battlefield 4 yet. I guess this coun...

Black Ops II: answering critics, ignoring competition photo
Black Ops II: answering critics, ignoring competition
by Jim Sterling

It could be fair to say that Call of Duty, as a franchise, has a large target painted on its back. There's been a very real backlash from the hardcore gamer community in recent months, as the series' popularity and installment frequency has led to a marked souring of opinions. Call of Duty is regarded, by some, as the epitome of everything that's wrong with modern gaming. 

From within the industry, would-be rivals are gunning for the shooter's position. For the past few years, Electronic Arts has attempted to snipe the crown from COD's head and position itself as the publisher of the dominant first-person shooter in the market. It's not been shy about its intention, and it's not been afraid to take any potshot it can at the competition. 

How does Treyarch feel about the detractors? Suffice it to say that studio boss Mark Lamia is not deaf to the outcry, but he has a positive view of the situation, and he remains confident that former fans of Call of Duty may come back to the fold with Black Ops II.

E3 2012 was considered by many to be the most gun-heavy show we have ever seen. However, looking back upon the week, there really were no more shooters than usual. In fact, most of the games were featured in last year's line...

E3: Medal of Honor: Warfighter sure is a military FPS photo
E3: Medal of Honor: Warfighter sure is a military FPS
by Patrick Hancock

It hasn't even been five years since the advent of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and already we have games with incredibly uninspired gameplay and generic names to go with it. This isn't to say that Warfighter isn't a competent shooter, because it is. If, somehow, you're not entirely burned out on modern-day first-person shooters, then you may want to read further about Warfighter.

If there's one interesting mechanic that Warfighter brings to the table, it’s the Fire Team system. Essentially, in multiplayer games, you're given one other player as part of your Fire Team, with plenty of benefits stemming from sticking together throughout the match. I'm not sure it's a good enough mechanic to warrant Warfighter's existence, but it's definitely something new and appreciated.

Medal of Honor Warfighter trailer is about wars, fighting

The modern military shooter might be as hackneyed as one's set during World War II once were, but I've found myself oddly excited for the follow-up to Electronic Arts' 2010 series reboot. Something about Medal of Honor's aut...
