Today, April promises Modern Warfare 3 showings, Major Nelson needs your help, and good job Team Fortress 2 players.

Today, it’s looking like Modern Warfare 3 is on the way, Major Nelson needs your help, and good job Team Fortress 2 players. I’m Destin and this is the Daily DL.

Get ready for Modern Warfare 3. (Source: CVG) According to PSM3 a UK Magazine, insider rumors are saying that the next in Activision’s megaton FPS series will be announced in mid-April. No date was given, but Treyarch is definitely staffing up for a Call of Duty related project. A ton of job listings from the company flooded onto the net looking for developers, combat designers, and more. (Source: Gamespot) The biggest tip is that one entry specifically states that the position reports into the Design Director for the Call of Duty multiplayer team at Treyarch. Exactly zero people are surprised by the news of a new Call of Duty.

Many game companies have been raising moolah to help out the people in Japan, and Team Fortress 2 raised a ton. (Source: TF2 Blog) They’ve managed to raise over $300,000 dollars by selling limited edition hats and noisemakers in the Mann Co. store. They offer hats like the Humanitarians Hachimaki for $7.99, and the Benefactors Kanmuri for $19.99 which will be available through April 6th. All proceeds from sales go directly to a fund that was setup by the American Red Cross. Hell yeah fellow gamers. That chunk of change is going to help a lot of people.

and finally, Microsoft is looking for a few thousand good men and women to test out… a new media format for the 360. (Source: Major Nelson) Realizing about as late in the game as they possibly could that their disc format could use an update, Major Nelson posted the call for testers on his atrociously designed blog MajorNelson.com. If you sign up, you do get a free copy of Halo Reach, but registration is limited to US residents only. Well thanks for the info Major Nelson. It’s also nice to know that the design of The Daily DL.com is better than at least one website out there.

I’m Destin and that was your Daily DL. What? She looks weird.

Destin has a penchant for video games and sarcasm. He's written for ScrewAttack, Destructoid, and GoNintendo, but has also produced episodes of the Video Game Vault series for Gametrailers, and created, produced, and edited every episode of The Armory on IGN. To put it mildly, he knows his shit.
