Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Onslaught
by Chris Carter

Call of Duty: Ghosts is one of the most disappointing games in the series' history. Although I didn't dislike it as much as Jim did, there's certainly something missing that made past games in the franchise appealing, and it's not just because the formula is getting stale.

The campaign was a bore, multiplayer didn't really bring much to the table, and worst of all, the highly anticipated "Extinction" mode was grossly underutilized. While the new map pack doesn't fundamentally fix the core problems of Ghosts, it does make it a little more interesting as a whole.

Playing Call of Duty with the Gamertag 'Xbox Sign Out' photo
Playing Call of Duty with the Gamertag 'Xbox Sign Out'
by Jordan Devore

Okay, this is a fun little trick. YouTuber Master of Luck has taken to playing Call of Duty: Ghosts with the Xbox Live Gamertag "Xbox Sign Out." In a multiplayer setting like this where players are prone to shouting each other's names and the Kinect is listening for voice commands, sign-outs are bound to ensue. Even when people know what's up, they still inexplicably say the magic words.

I like that everyone who fell for the prank seemed to find it humorous. I wonder if that was truly the case, or if a bunch of genuinely angry folks didn't make it into this video.
