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.
Below is a video I recorded of Duty Calls, however you can download it yourself for free from various file hosting websites at just under 800MB in size.
Unfortunately, Fraps didn’t record the audio for the movie parts – but you get the idea anyway.
