Viral campaigns, where would we be without them? This latest viral campaign is no different, leading up to the release of Epic Games' Bulletstorm, they've released a Call of Duty parody called, Duty Calls.
The parody is quite excellent and really hones down on what makes the Call of Duty series a near joke in todays world of "serious gaming" where budgets of games have ballooned out to $50 - $100 million. In Duty Calls, it shows the first kill as a one-two shot kill, enemy down and you level up to "Master Sergeant Shooter Person".
The word that comes to mind? LOL. Secondly, the character walks next to a crate, gets shot by the enemy a few times, blood and blur are across the screen, so he shoots the enemy twice and the enemy dies. It's just perfect and how COD is these days, you are invincible while trained operatives die in the 10's if not 100's at a time.
Half way through there's another perfect bit of Call of Duty realism, two shots with a rifle and a jeep blows up. I think I'm going to buy Bulletstorm just because of this parody!
