Free Radical Kicks the Bucket; Antioxidants Eyed Suspiciously

fr.jpg
The rumor mill has the highly respected Free Radical Studios (of Timesplitters fame and with talent stretching all the way back to Goldeneye) closing its doors one last time… and locking out its employees.

What does this mean for our hopes and dreams? The Timesplitters IP can still be sold, and employees as talented as Free Radicals' are bound to be back in the game lending their talents to other games. Until they land on their feet, WiiHD's thoughts are with them.

Some people might blame the worldwide economic recession. Others might suspect Free Radical over-invested in the poorly performing Haze. WiiHD blames Vitamin E. It knows why.

WiiHD Cometh?

wiihdani.gif
No, not the blog, the next generation of Wii. What They Play is reporting that multiple reluctant sources have confirmed that Ninty is presenting the new console to game developers under the moniker "Wii HD". Nice name. What They Play Also points to R&D costs as consistent with a new a console being just around the corner.

Supposedly this is more than just a refresh (Wii 1.1 or what not), but the sources weren't very specific on features other than HD visuals, an assumption of serious drive space, and backwards compatibility.

Due date? 2011. Hopefully we can get some on-the-record confirmation before that.

New DS Rumors Reach Crescendo

MCV reports:

According to our impeccable source in Japan, Satoru Iwata will make the announcement at 5am UK time – as first predicted by MCV last month.

Little is known about the machine's exact extra functions, but we do know the product will be the ‘multimedia’ model mentioned by Nikkei this week – with an MP3 player and camera function.

It's still a rumor, but at least this one won't take long to validate.

Rumor: World At War Perks List (Updated)

perks.jpg
Update: Vampheric did not do the collection work for his lists, he just copied them from elsewhere without crediting the original creator, so he is no longer credited for it. FullMetal at CallofDuty.com seems to be the origin of most of the list. The lists in this post have been updated to reflect FullMetal's work, his graphical guide has been added, and his weapon's guide, which is both more complete and better sourced, has been posted.

An industrious GameFaqs user, Vampheric FullMetal has put together a list of perks and weapons expected in Call of Duty: World at War. We've filed this under rumor, since the list isn't completely sourced and we lack links, but most of it reeks of truthiness, so we're passing it on. FullMetal Claims the italicized perks and weapons have been confirmed. You be the judge.

Perks

- Juggernaut (Confirmed by Treyarch in interview)
- Martyrdom (Confirmed by Treyarch in interview)
- Stopping Power (August issue of Xbox Magazine, thanks shawn12390!)
- Deep Impact (August issue of Xbox Magazine, thanks shawn12390!)
- Flack Jacket [Allows the player to survive heavy grenade impacts/blasts.] (Confirmed by GameSpot)
- 'Mid clip M1 Reloading' (Confirmed by "computerandvideogames" article, thanks MaTtKs1! And also Gameplay Footage)
- Sleight of Hand
- Extreme Conditioning
- Steady Aim
- Bandoleer
- Iron Lungs
- Sonic Boom [adds the ability to spread a deadlier & vaster sea of fire, thanks pr1ck for the idea]
- Last Stand
- Monkey [Climbing trees, thanks GirlsHateMe]
- Frogman [Faster Swimming, thanks GirlsHateMe]
- Play Dead [Ability to fake death, thanks GirlsHateMe]
- Crouch Sprinter [Allows you to sprint while being in crouch position/cover, thanks GirlsHateMe]
- Banzai [Allows you to draw, charge & use your melee weapons alot faster (even when sprinting), providing more damage to the enemy, thanks GirlsHateMe]

Vehicle related perks

- "Extra armour" [This makes each vehicle stronger ["Juggernaut" perk for vehicles]
- "Lightweight tank/vehicle" [This gives each vehicle the ability to go very fast but on the other hand you'll be more vulnerable. ["Extreme Conditioning" for vehicles]
- "Mechanic" [Repairing vehicles (to a certain extent), thanks GirlsHateMe]
- Chameleon [Adds vegetation foliage to your tank for camouflage concealment]
- Lubricant [Faster tank turrent movement]
- Machine Gunner [Adds a machine gun to any vehicle that can be fitted with one]
- Tank Commander [Allows infantry to be spawned next to you your vehicle so you can provide them cover/a lift]
- Optics [Interior tank view for zoomed and more precise targeting; "Red Orchestra" style]
- High-explosive (HE) Round [Does more damage to infantry and has a higher blast radius, good for taking out groups but is weak against tanks]
- Armour-piercing (AP) [Does more damage to tanks but is weak against infantry]
- Dragon [Adds a flamethrower to your tank but other rounds are disabled]

What are perks? They are player customizations that let you add certain skills to your in-game self, creating a custom class of soldier. Perks were a very popular part of Infinity Ward's hit Call of Duty 4, so Treyarch has wisely chosen to keep them in World at War. In addition to an equally unsourced Weapons list, there's a CoD4 perks trailer FullMetal's visual guide to confirmed weapons is after the break, to help you get an idea of what Treyarch is shooting for.

Medal of Honor: I Can't Get This Fraking Sand out of my Boots

mohafghan.jpg

Or MoH:ICGTFSoomB for short.

The July issue of EGM indicates that Medal of Honor may be making a welcome jump out of World War II, much like Modern Warfare did for Call of Duty. The rumored setting? Afghanistan. Why? Because there just aren't enough shades of brown in video games these days.

You can see WiiHD's recommended title above. What's yours?
