Joining Modern Warfare's Mile High Club - Challenge Scot!
by Jamie McGinn

This week's challenge is in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in which I must beat the "Mile High Club" scenario on veteran. I've never really been super into the Call of Duty games, so my chances of successfully completing this rather notorious challenge are not high!

If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Halo, Modern Warfare 2, & Skyrim brought together

Musician Sarah Schachner did a little arrangement where she covered the Halo, Modern Warfare 2, and Skyrim themes back-to-back. The covers sound wonderful, and it's all even more impressive once you see that Sarah played every instrument herself. [Via The Awesomer]

Modern Warfare 3, the BETTER version

Did any of you guys see Be Kind Rewind? Beat Down Boogie, the wildcats behind Modern War Gear Solid, apparently did. The boys took a crack at a "sweded" Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, made even better with Ghost in the lead role and without all those fancy-shmancy CGI effects! Also, Dolphin Lundgren. Yes.

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Wii) photo
Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Wii)
by Xander Markham

[Update: We originally said that you couldn't swap Ally/Friend Codes as in Black Ops. Turns out you can, so that line has been corrected.]

Since Internet winner Jim Sterling has already published Destructoid's official review of Modern Warfare 3, this article is strictly looking at how successfully the game has been ported to the Wii. Assessment of the game's content is therefore off the menu, except when differences to the 360/PS3/PC versions alter the gameplay in some noticeable fashion. There are a few such cases, making the Wii iteration slightly distinct from its HD counterpart not only in how it looks but also in how it plays.

You will also notice that every image contained in this review is a generic screenshot from the HD version. Activision has had some success in quietly releasing Wii versions of their previous Call of Duty games, with each comfortably selling over a million copies despite being downports with zero marketing presence. "Quietly," in this case, might be exaggeration of the decade. Screenshots of the game are virtually impossible to find, and I lack the equipment to grab my own from my console.

Nevertheless, after Treyarch did respectable work porting Black Ops to the Wii last year, can they pull the same trick with Infinity Ward's game this time around?
