Scraps: I can't be objective about World at War (10/13/08)

Scraps

Why not? It's probably because I'm bloody awful at it. I wasn't much good when it came to Call of Duty 4 but this is just depressing. I'm lucky if I can kill half as many times as I get to press the respawn button. If you want an opinion on the beta from somebody who can actually play long enough to have one, you might want to check out Grim's impressions (to be posted tomorrow). I will say one thing, though: Dogs are really cool.

Now for some news that we could not find time to post in the glut of post-TGS coverage that found its way on the site today. Enjoy.

  • Brash entertainment seems to be hemmorging executives these days, as a co-founder and the chief creative officer have now left. Maybe if they had made a better game than Space Chimps or Alvin and the Chipmunks...[GamesIndustry]
  • Sony's Kaz Hirai isn't worried about the games industry hurting in the face of the global economic crisis. Pachter doesn't seem all that concerned either. [Edge]
  • A fairly vague intellectual property bill has made it through Congress and now sits on George W Bush's desk. If signed, it could have some severe consequences for pirates [GamePolitics]
  • Barack Obama is advertising in videogames now, reaching out to the gamer demographic by paying for billboards in Burnout Paradise. [gigoam]
