Bulletstorm, the demo of which we talked about on our latest episode of The GamerSushi Show, has been taking the piss out of the most popular first person shooters of our day. While the PR team at EA previously took a swipe at Halo 3’s excellent Diorama commercial, this time Call of Duty is on the chopping block with Duty Calls, a cutting look at the tropes Call of Duty employs on a regular basis. What sort of tropes you ask? Let the following list tell you, then check out a video after the jump:
Duty Vision slows down the action so you can unload a storm of bullets
Immersive dialogue from the front lines
Cold, calculated realism
Killing animations motion captured from real actors
True-life reloading system allows for mistakes in putting the cartridge in the gun
Iconic sound effects
Thwart an enemy threat that could topple the country and possibly the world
Significant and historically accurate props
Oh. The first letter of each item spells out “dicktits”. Well, that’s just great.
Now that Bulletstorm has officially made fun of every competitor’s successful FPS franchise, I’m thinking that the game proper needs to hit it out of the park. It’s easy enough to make fun of CoD and Halo, but if you don’t deliver, you’ll be laughed out of the next E3. What do you guys think?
