Max and I have hippie liberal hipster opinions about CoD: Advanced Warfare photo
Max and I have hippie liberal hipster opinions about CoD: Advanced Warfare
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I were playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare while hungover, and started devolving into dumber and dumber jokes, and then Max busts out a term like "jingoistic proto-fascism" because we're a couple of San Francisco hipsters who definitely don't have informed, individually refined opinions about things because the world is a vampire and everything is fake.

We were playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, but we wanted to hang with Stephan at the skate park
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I continue to fumble around in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as our minds wander to some predictably stupid places. We talk about meeting an imaginary teen named Stephan at the skate park, how to find "The Boob," and aggravatingly stupid YouTube comments.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's Jack the Doppelganger is too sexy for his shirt

I frown on the idea that additional Vault Hunters are being offered for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's season pass in place of story DLC (rather than in addition to it, as Gaige the Mechromancer and Krieg the Psycho were in B...

Halo 5: Guardians has left me oddly cold and worried photo
Halo 5: Guardians has left me oddly cold and worried
by Abel Girmay

I am not opposed to change. While certain circles of Halo fans find it popular to hate Halo 4, I've always appreciated what 343 Industries did with that game. Sprint was a logical next step to character movement, while loadout abilities such as shielding, dexterity, and promethean vision felt like natural additions to Halo's formula.

With Halo 5: Guardians, well, I'm not quite so excited with what 343 is doing. During my time with Guardians I often struggled to find that feeling of playing a Halo game.

Talking about Gilmore Girls while playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare just doesn't seem right
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I continue giving the benefit of the doubt to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Max started talking about a crazy theory he has connecting the television shows Gilmore Girls and Californication because his brain was polluted by a combination of oysters and vodka. Don't do booze, kids.

Max and I suck at Advanced Warfare, but that never stops us from doing anything
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I got our hands on a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We figured we should probably play it because people like to watch men get sweaty in videogames or whatever. Anyway, we recorded this the day after Max's birthday, so we were both pretty hungover, which served to exacerbate our lack of shooter skill and the incoherence of our jokes. Enjoy.

Blizzard announces first new franchise in 17 years, Overwatch photo
Blizzard announces first new franchise in 17 years, Overwatch
by Steven Hansen

Over at Blizzcon today, Blizzard has announced Overwatch. This is named similarly to Insomniac's original name for Fuse, which was Overstrike, and is also a cartoonish, team-based first-person shooter. 

There is a fighting gorilla in it. And it's coming out sooner than you might expect, with a beta starting in 2015 and Blizzcon attendees able to play it this weekend.

You can sign up for the beta here. There are also little profiles for all of the announced heroes, including gameplay videos. so start calling dibs. I like Hanzo, Tracer, and Mercy for looking like an Evangelion

Review: Halo: The Master Chief Collection photo
Review: Halo: The Master Chief Collection
by Chris Carter

Although Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary was a noble effort to remaster the original game that brought first-person shooters on consoles into a post-Goldeneye era, I couldn't help but feel a bit underwhelmed by the overall package.

I enjoyed the idea of replaying the original, but there weren't enough bells and whistles to keep me interested for a lengthy period of time. Enter the Master Chief Collection, which not only gives you the remake of the first game, but a fully-featured remaster of Halo 2, as well as Halo 3 and 4.

I never thought I'd see the day when four major Halo games are under one roof [disc], but here we are. With promises of full 1080p support and 60 frames-per-second across every game, Halo: The Master Chief Collection follows through where it counts, and is now the new standard for remakes.
