RUMOR: Modern Warfare 2 Features International Space Station

Posted in Activision, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , on October 18, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Modern Warfare 2

has just shed light on what could be a very interesting development. On the Call Of Duty Wiki page, under ‘Levels’, it lists the International Space Station.

“International Space Station – During E3 2009 Build some press members saw a level named “International Space Station”, but Robert Bowling didn’t want to show this level (when asked to show this level he reportedly stated “Ah you saw this…” and played a different level instead).”

Does this mean you’ll be shot into orbit to the ISS and take down some baddies there? We wouldn’t put it past Infinity Ward…

New Pokemon Game Announced for the Wii

Posted in Nintendo Wii with tags , , on October 17, 2009 by Chris Hawke


Nintendo have announced yet another Pokemon game, but this time, for the Wii. The happy little critters called Pokemon are kept by humans, petted heavily, and forced to fight to fainting point, yet still the RSPCC overlook this.

The games have usually appeared on the Nintendo DS, but PokePark Wii will come with full waggle control, and feature Pikachu roaming around a huge, varied park (filled with Pokemon, no doubt), battling them and competing in various minigames. Joy.

It’s out in Japan on December 5, with a North American release in 2010.

Thanks, 1UP.
