Call of Duty Expansion

A story on HomeLAN Fed reports on a story in the new print issue of PC Gamer that reveals plans for a hitherto-unrevealed expansion for Call of Duty called United Offensive, slated for release this fall. Word is that Wolfenstein developers Gray Matter will be creating the add-on for the World War II shooter, which will include additional single-player campaigns for the American's, British, and Russians, including Kursk and the Battle of the Bulge.

I tend to agree with Quboid. There's not quite that viscereal rush of shooting a Nazi zombie as there is shooting a natural Nazi. Zombie Nazis, despite wanting to rule the world as well as eat your brains, don't invoke blood curdling hatred like a regular Nazi who put that Nazi uniform on under his own free will and thus deserves being turned into tiny little giblets with a Venom cannon.

Plus Nazi zombies just sorta drool and mumble stuff while regular Nazis of course speak German which just makes them sound even more evil.

I would be negligent if I didn't what I consider two axioms about games in regards to Nazis as said in Oldmanmurray.com

Because, seriously, making a game about Nazis and not having you somehow fight Hitler - whether he lives in a robot suit or flies around in a jet or maybe he's an armored dracula now or whatever - is retarded. If a game doesn't let you fight some form of Hitler - for instance, a giant Hitler - then that game will receive a warning sticker, in much the same way that the U.S. Goverment currently requires awful games to display on their box the universally understood symbol for unnacceptable quality, "Anne McCaffrey's".

I wish we lived in a world where all games were required to include Nazis. Though, now that I think about it, I'm describing a world where Germany won World War 2, such as the one portrayed in every novel, play, tv show, and movie about time travel. So let me qualify that: I want to live in a country that prohibits games that feature any type of enemy other than Nazis. Soldiers, robots, dogs - anything goes as long as they're Nazis or, in the case of dogs, German Shepherds.

To extend the argument: Hellboy, which comes out soon, didn't pique my interest all that much. But then after seeing more information, I learned they'll be man handling Nazis or something. That immediately gives it 2 stars on a scale of 4. Plus my $7 for the movie.

RtCW was fun in single player but the whole zombie thing sucked. I guess they'd be able to do a decent expansion as long as they stay away from the undead.

Thinking Ray actually quite likes Farcry, awaiting it's UK release tomorrow,

You mean the one level?

I, too, think Gray Matter made a fabulous single-player game. Mind you, this is Wolfenstein we are talking about - a game that already zombies and questionable science as part of its design.

Thinking Far Cry makes 90% of all games suck outright,

I thought the singleplayer part of Wolfenstein was very enjoyable. That zombie part in that tomb was really scary.

Ah well, there's a game for everyone I guess.

I'm looking forward to this one but.. Battle for Kursk? Why does that only make me think of some submarine?

It's being done by Gray Matter. If their single-player portion of Return to Castle Wolfenstein was a show-off of their results, then stay as far away as you can from this CoD add-on.

WTF you talking about? Return to Castle Wolfenstein was an excellent single player game.

Think you will be hard pressed to find anyone to agree with you, you certainly wont be in the majority.
