Duty Has Been Called Over 1.5Miiilllionnn Times

I completely forgot to post about this game when it was first birthed into the internets, but since it has had over 1.5 million downloads in less than a week - it’s time for a mention… If you haven’t been online or on your Xbox 360 Dashboard, you might have not heard of a little ‘Epic’ release entitled ‘Bulletstorm,’ developed by Epic(Gears of War Trilogy) as well as People Can Fly Games. And they have driven their lolzroyce to the internets and have released an online only parody game of the Call of Duty Franchise.

We all love Call of Duty, at least I do, but we all hate it too. I (we) hate how once a year I have to buy a new game so I can be a part of an amazing multiplayer experience. I (we) hate how there is no real difference in the games. Stories are usually a copy of the previous, gameplay doesn’t advance, etc. This is what we get when year after year we see a new title released. We still enjoy the good times we have headshotting noobs online, but we still are eager for something new.

Hop on in for more including the 4+ minute game walkthrough.

The team over at People Can Fly feel our pain. They know what we don’t like, and they make damn good fun of it here. Duty Calls is a free downloadable game released at www.thedutycalls.com which is around 750mb if I remember right. The parody pokes fun at the boring task at hand when playing the galaxy’s favorite franchise. With 1.5 million downloads, hopefully Activision takes it for more than just people wanting a good laugh.

Either way, Bulletstorm comes out on the 22nd of this month, and it looks to be one kick arse game. Something new to sink our FPS teeth into, with a little more foul language and gore. “Rank Up - Master Sergeant Shooter Sergeant Important Person of Sergeants Extreme”
