Sledgehammer suggests it isn't working on CoD: Ghosts

Given its prior work on the franchise, it wasn't unreasonable to expect Sledgehammer Games to be involved with Call of Duty: Ghosts. That does not appear to be the case, however. "Congrats to Infinity Ward on [Ghosts]! O...

Sledgehammer hiring for new Call of Duty title

A new Call of Duty title? No one would be surprised. But one for the Xbox 360 and PS3? Hmm. Sledgehammer Games, the co-developers of Modern Warfare 3, are hiring a Senior Environment Artist for an upcoming Call of Duty f...

Call of Duty Elite Premium Members on the Xbox 360 side will be getting a brand new multiplayer/survival map plus two new Spec-Ops missions tomorrow. This content, along with the three previously released maps, will all be available in a bundled package for $14.99 on March 20 on the Xbox 360.

Of the three new additions, "Negotiator" is my favorite as it's the hardest Spec-Ops mission I've played in Modern Warfare 3. So hard that after four tries I had to give up.

Do the Modern Warfare 3 chicken dance

I don't know why, but this video by YouTuber projectrooster makes me die laughing. It might have something to do with the song just being perfect for the little chicken dance. DO THE CHICKEN DANCE! [Thanks, Scott!]

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
by Jim Sterling

Whether or not Call of Duty deserves its status as the most powerful videogame franchise of the modern era is a debate that will likely rage long after its star has faded. No matter what one thinks of Activision's market-dominating shooter, one cannot argue that its influence has been huge and that it has helped define a console generation ... for better or worse. 

Each year, the series enjoys greater triumphs as every successive chapter earns more sales, enjoys increased marketing spending, and sparks ever-fiercer arguments among the gaming community. 

Nothing lasts forever, and one day, Call of Duty's unprecedented run of success is sure to end. It will not, however, end with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

The Modern Warfare 3 launch trailer is here

Just like with Battlefield 3, the Modern Warfare 3 launch trailer has arrived. While many of you are going to argue over which game is better, I'm just going to sit back and smile. Why? Because I'm going to be playing the hell out of both the major first-person shooters and enjoy every second of them.

As for this trailer, we get to see a lot more locations in the single-player campaign we'll be going to as we hunt down Makarov. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 hits November 8 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

UK Readers: Will you be trading in Battlefield 3 on the troll deal, keeping both, or just saving yourself for MW3?
