It all seemed so easy in the last year or so to pick what games to buy.
- Modern Warfare? Check.
- Modern Warfare 2? Check.
- Bad Company 2? Check.
- Halo Reach? Check.
Medal of Honor? I don’t know yet. I’m waiting to see what Mike thinks of the game!
Meanwhile, videos have started to appear on ye olde Youtube..
Geoff likes it. +1
NGT likes it. +1

So, thumbs up from a number of Youtube commentators. Apparently lag has been pretty bad on all versions, particularly the consoles. Hopefully they’ll get that sorted out.
I’m actually enjoying Halo Reach and wishing it was multi platform so I could play in a game with my friends on the Playstation 3, but maybe the next Bungie game will give us that opportunity. I briefly considered buying a PVR as all the cool kids are doing that, but Bungie Pro is cheap enough, and you can render 50 minutes of gameplay for US$5 which won’t break the bank. If I feel motivated enough to try that, add a voice over and upload it, then I’ll splash the cash. It’s not as if I get amazing gameplay all the time but I do have my moments.
I pre-ordered Medal of Honor (for PS3) a few days ago from Amazon. I selected their free delivery method so it’ll be almost a week after release before I get the game, but I can wait. Really. Maybe.
Anyway, a few videos from the PC beta showed up on Youtube this morning that made me rethink the wisdom of pre-ordering the game.
In Jay’s video he must have been fuming at the lack of progress and deaths he suffered at the hands of unseen enemies. I certainly would have been (quietly) cursing my enemy.
Seems there are already aimbots in the PC beta. Look at how fast that guy flicks from left to right shooting at distant enemies.
But finally, d0n7bl1nk posted a video where he did rather well and he was upbeat about the game. Even at 360p the scenery looks stunning to me, and at least there won’t be any crate bashing in the objective type games.
One final video from Mileycyrusthevirus. He’s undecided about the game too but the gameplay video is great.
Have any of you, my dear readers played the PC beta? Do you like it? The console beta months ago was a pile of pooh but DICE have had plenty of time to work their magic and make it better.
PS. Good to see David’s still posting videos!
I have a Medal of Honor beta code to give away. Leave a comment here and subscribe to my blog. Since this is so time critical I’ll announce the winner tomorrow but they’ll need to leave a comment on that post too.
So, if you want a MOH beta code leave a comment!
If you haven’t played Medal of Honor yet you may have seen people mention how easy it is to cause the beta to freeze your PS3, requiring a reboot of the machine. I wonder if this is why the Xbox version is delayed a week?
Anyway, Geoff has the beta, and created MoHbeta2010, a new channel where he’ll be posting videos from the beta. The one above is easily the most informative of the videos I’ve seen today. He talks about guns, hit damage, the super powerful tank, and “hit streaks”. And of course how to freeze the beta too.
One freeze is triggered by getting 40 points through gun kills. Shoot 3 or 4 people without dying and your machine will freeze up! Crazy isn’t it?
Cardsnumber7 is the first person on my subscriber list to post a Medal of Honor gameplay video to Youtube. He says himself that he’s figuring out how to play the game and the commentary isn’t very good but it gives a good idea of how the game looks and plays.
Geoff held a streaming session on justin.tv playing MOH but when I hopped onto his channel he was playing Arica Harbour in BfBC2! I guess MOH came later.
Now I’m wondering how many of my online friends are taking part in the MOH beta. Field Operative is, though he’s on Xbox and the beta is delayed a week on that platform. Geoff is, on PS3, Mike too?
Field Operative linked to more videos, I hope he doesn’t mind if I post them too. They’re tiny on his blog!
Ah feck, tempted now to pre-order it to get in the beta!
