Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc
by Chris Carter

Call of Duty map packs are definitely a mixed bag. Fifteen dollars is pricey by any standards, and the prospect of one or two remade maps and a grand total of four arenas isn't anything to get excited about.

Advanced Warfare's new Havoc DLC has just arrived this week on Xbox platforms, and it's par for the course in terms of what you'd expect. As usual though, zombies save the day.

House of Wolves might be Bungie's last chance to save Destiny photo
House of Wolves might be Bungie's last chance to save Destiny
by Chris Carter

Before Destiny was released, it was hyped into oblivion. Hundreds of thousands of fans bought into it, and by extension, purchased the Season Pass consisting of the first two expansions -- the second of which, House of Wolves, is set for a March release date.

Activision and Bungie already have their money, whether fans are disappointed or not. But they don't have their cash for September's rumored "Comet" expansion or anything else after that.

This is their time to put up or shut up regarding a lot of the things promised these past few years.
