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
