Duty Calls Gameplay Video – Call of Duty Parody to Advertise Upcoming Game

Everyone loves an almighty giggle every now and then, however when an actual game is released that pokes fun at one of the most successful series to ever be released, it certainly demands your attention and admiration.

Duty Calls – The Calm Before the Storm is a short playable game for the PC that pokes fun constantly at the Call of Duty franchise – mocking its surreal slow motion antics, the tedium of enemy after enemy appearing, dull mission briefings and the wonders of collecting meaningless rubbish. The whole point though is to highlight the upcoming game ‘Bulletstorm’ and the Gears of War 3 beta it gives you access to. I must say the whole idea is extremely pleasing and as great as the Call of Duty franchise is, you can still have a little laugh at its expense.
