It’s the holiday and we are feeling generous. We have been reviewing Call Of Duty: World At War, and have decided to give a few copies of the game away to readers. but first we thought we would give it a play, see the review below.
First the review, then the contest.
If you want to get “in the shit” but can’t afford a time machine, Call Of Duty: World At War will do pretty nicely. While the sentiment is known more from the ‘Nam era than any other military situation, the initial gameplay from this WWII era first person shooter definitely gives off that vibe. Starting off in the jungles and villages of Japanese occupied territories, you work your way through objectives while heavily camouflaged enemy soldiers create enough confusion to accidentally cause more than a few friendly-fire mistakes. This gives way to Nazi themed levels, with vehicles like tanks available for some gameplay.
The graphics are lush and wonderful, with beautiful night skies, swaying trees and brush, and occasional ambience like smoke from nearby fires and grenade explosions. All of it is wrapped in solid type and graphic design for level intros, and player deaths are characterized by a bleak Saving Private Ryan style drop-to the-ground-screen-goes-black-and-white-blood-fills-around-the-edges animation. Unfortunately the visuals aren’t as lushly layered with smoke, grime and dust as we’d like, but perhaps the historical accuracy of the game benefits from actually being able to see what’s going on.
Gameplay is solid if not a little scripted- you can die repeatedly but keep hammering through the objectives trying different tactics with each restart. Multiplayer is decent with some fun options (Nazi zombies, anyone?) involving all the solo and team play scenarios expected nowadays. The only drawback to this historical shooter is that we all know how the war ended, and pushing your way through the war with no fun surprise at the end can get old if you’re the type of gamer who also enjoys the horror and scifi variants on these types of games.
I want to thank our new game review PC for taking care of this.

Get a copy for yourself and a copy for somebody else.
There is a girl in Brooklyn named Katie who started putting up random thought bubbles around her neighborhood and then photographed people as they walked by them. “Do you ever wonder what people are thinking about when you pass them on the street?” This is great execution and it seems she never had any intention involving fame or cash, just love and discovery.
I have a prediction for 2009.
Those street artists who milked the gallery system will return to working on the streets once the collectors udders are empty. Those who do not return, they were never about the art on the street anyway.
I was at a gallery booth at Scope where they were selling some Dalek originals and prints a couple weeks ago. They told me Dalek wasn’t making any large edition prints, and that the reason they were pricing the prints like photographs (the more prints sold the higher the price) was due to Supply and Demand. Well, what the fuck is this print then? Huh, Gallery? A gorgeous, large edition print by Dalek that will stay the same price (affordable) until they are sold out. You should buy one, and also I should buy one.

Quite a productive/successful year for Shepard Fairey and his studio. A lot of trees felled too.
