Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Preview!

Hey everyone! We’re in Hawaii at the moment shooting a couple of videos (they’re gonna be super fun!), but while we’re away, here’s an little video we filmed that’s pretty different than what we’re used to.

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to the YouTube Tokyo Space to be a part of their Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare event. Hell yeah we’ll go! I thought we were just going to sit down and play some advance copies of the game, but no, they actually redesigned the whole set to be part of the Retribution, which is a ship from the game. And I think that is an amazing experience for gamers. I mean, I love Final Fantasy 7. If I got to be on a replica set of the Highwind I would lose my shit. And while I don’t have as close a connection with Call of Duty as I do Final Fantasy, I really want to play it a lot more now that I’ve been on that set, you know?

Too bad we really suck at the game. Super bad. We were amused at how bad we were. There’s just a lot I don’t understand about the gameplay, but that makes it more fun, I think. Are people supposed to die that often? Do you usually see who is shooting you, or where they’re shooting from? When you point your gun at someone and shoot, does it usually kill them, or does it just, like in our place, alert the enemy of your presence, so they can then turn around to shoot you, probably while saying “oh! Hello there, mate! Thank you for being so kind. Off you go to die now, then!”

Something super interesting for me about this game: I didn’t get sick while playing it, and I don’t know why. I have avoided First Person Shooting games for a long time now, because I would feel nauseated while playing them. So I was worried about this day, but – somehow – even after playing for an hour, I didn’t feel queasy, I didn’t have any eye pain. Why are things different, I’m not sure. Is it because I’m older and blinder, maybe? Is it because something in animation has changed? Whatever it is, I’m happy, and I’ll be giving this game some more of my time.

Otherwise, we’ve got a special Call of Duty video coming soon. We shot a 360 degree video on the set. Our first 360 video! It should be coming soon, so stay tuned :D

  1. Awesome video! I have also not played shooters since high school, Martina! The Tokyo Space looked so cool! I can’t believe they did that!

  2. I felt so related to you guys!! I suck at FPS games and also I have motion sickness in games (just as you Simon, I’ve been avoiding FPS for the longest time because it makes me extremely dizzy and nauseous!) But recently I found out that Overwatch does not makes mr dizzy at all!! So maybe you can try it too?
    Anyway love you guys!

  3. So you guys are actually on the same island that my brother lives on, and he just got married there on Sunday… I couldn’t afford to go to the wedding so now not only did I miss my older brothers wedding but also the slim chance of running into you guys! Ultimate bummer.

  4. So, some advice. 1) Burst fire will make you more accurate than just holding down the trigger. 2) Stay mobile while shooting. 3) Watch the indicator for what direction you are getting shot from so you can find your shooter and escape or kill them.

    I usually get really bad motion sickness when playing FPS games too. More so now that I suffer from a few health issues that make nausea even worse to deal with. With FPS I find that playing on PC with a higher refresh rate and better graphics help. Turning off head-bob works for me too. If they camera is bouncing around like it’s attached to a running head it tends to make me loose it.
