We've got hold of two videos that demonstrate the intensity of action that you can expect from Call of Duty 3, the WWII first-person shooter due for release this November.
Both videos - available on the Movies tab above - show how you'll get assistance and orders from the AI soldiers that fight alongside you. The AI help is one of the game's strengths with you never left to play the super-solider and take on the enemy by yourself - instead there's always the feeling of being part of a

If you're looking for a bit of warfare to round out your upcoming Wii purchases, these new Call of Duty 3 shots, available on the images tab above, show that it's maintained the series' feel - if not quite the next-gen visual oomph - on Nintendo's
We've got a new video of Call of Duty 3 gameplay footage to offer today. It's apparently taken from the Xbox 360 version of the game currently in development (we spotted the blue X button on the menus) but we expect the PS3 and Wii versions won't be far off. The video features everything you want to see in Call of Duty - exploding tanks, sneak attacks, surprise grenades and, in the climactic finale, a desperate dagger attack from a crazed Nazi, complete with "blut und ehre" - "blood and honor"
Call of Duty 3 was officially confirmed this morning by Activision. The latest chapter in the World War II shooter series is currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. All versions are due to be released this fall.
Very little was announced beyond those core details. We do know that the game deals with the Liberation of Paris, which pegs the action in late 1944. That was the final stage of Operation Overlord, better known to many as the

When Wii hits the shops at the end of the year, it'll play host to next-gen versions of both Tony Hawk's and Call of Duty, according to publisher Activision.
Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam and Call of Duty 3 are set for release in autumn, and will feature in the launch line-up for Nintendo's newly rechristened console. However, despite hitting several current and next-gen systems, Call of Duty 3 won't be striking a beachhead on PC.
This info was beamed to our eyes at

Following our Call of Duty 3 first-look from yesterday, we've managed to get hold of some screenshots of the Wii version of Activision's World War II shooter.
Treyarch will be tailoring the latest in the Call of Duty series to make use of Wii's motion sensing controller, but when we spoke to an Activision representative last week he wasn't too clear of just how.
Looking at the screens, however (see the images tab for more), is seems as though the remote will be used to
It might sound melodramatic, but by the looks of this new trailer for Call of Duty 3 on Wii, the motion-sensitive war will leave you just as physically exhausted as if you'd actually fought through the Battle of the Bulge, while bayoneting half of Nazi Germany's men folk in the process.
Well, maybe it's not that demanding. But if you hit the movies tab above to watch the vid, you'll see Call of Duty expects plenty of mime-artist soldiering from you throughout its war torn battles - reloading,
We sort of thought the Guinness Book of World Records was a collection of definite, measurable achievements. Like, that's pretty much everything it represents... or not - the latest edition of the Guinness Gamers' Edition contains a list of the top 50 game series, not by total sales or anything factual like that, but as determined by a poll. It's horrific.
See the whole list inside...
Freedom of speech? Bah! Who wants that? Games are clearly rotting humanity’s collective eternal soul and must be banned accordingly. The following collection of violent, titillating titles have offended censors all over the world. Some have been beaten to death by the banning bat for their gory deaths, others for displaying acts of girl-on-girl action, while one was even banned for having a two-headed cow. Really, just what is this

Gaming is an up and down experience. Some years cram top quality titles into our every orifice until were bursting with videogame joy and have excess polygons dripping messily out of our ears, while some other years… Well, some other years are 1983.
In 2007 though, weve had a very good year indeed. A scarily good year in fact. One which has provided us so much brilliance on every format that its a genuine worry that the laws of karmic balance will soon bring us a plague
