Ken Lally Confirms Voice Work For COD6 by Anthony Barlow

This is NOT a screenshot!

[By Anthony]

Ken Lally has confirmed that he’s doing voice work for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2  (or “Call Of Duty 6”). Now I know that everyone is wondering, “who the hell is Ken Lally”. Well, acording to IMDB, Lally is the voice actor for Albert Wesker in the upcoming Resident Evil 5 and appeared as ‘The German’ in two episodes of the current season of Heroes. Lally confirmed his affiliation with Infinity Ward’s new shooter in an interview with Coin-Op TV. This makes it extremely likely that we’ll see a new Call Of Duty in 2009. I can’t wait. Announced at E3 maybe?

Sony seem to have decided to stop announcing new things coming into PlayStation Home. We have been informed that yesterday a new update was released for the service, bringing with it the Home Events space and leaderboards for the Red Bull: Air Race Home space. Now if Sony had announced this, it might have got people to visit. Seems like bad marketing for a company that’s just lost $1 billion +. Either way they’re out, they’re pretty cool. Nothing special, just a new minigame and some leaderboards. Check it out though, it might just take your fancy.

It looks like the Paradise City police have finally caught on to all the racing that goes in in the city they’re supposed to “protect and serve”. Some footage has appeared on the internet presumably showing a police chase of sorts occuring within Paradise City, leading people to suggest that ‘Pursuit Mode’ will be coming back to Burnout via a patch or DLC. You can see that the something regarding police appeared on the Burnout store in the ‘Ultimate Box’ trailer (see the gallery at the bottom of this post) as well as images of a cop car, one of which tops this post.

It’s Friday “i’m in love”, so maybe we’ll get the skinny from Criterion today. Sounds good though, if what’s being said is right I hope we see it soon.

This week also sees the return of LittleBigPlanet DLC, some more (useless) DLC for Skate 2 and the PS3 exclusive Mirrors Edge time trial map, as well as the usual updates for Rock Band & Guitar Hero: WT.

Well I rumored it and I was right PopCap are bringing Peggle to the PS3, as well as some other casual delights. Bejeweled, Peggle, Zuma and Heavy Weapon will all be appearing on the PSN soon enough, starting tonight with Bejeweled 2. Not bad, not bad at all. Bejeweled has apparently got some easy trophies too, putting all trophy whores on imediate alert.
