Zombies, monsters, Captain America: Call of Duty is different in China


Hollywood takes a paycheck in China
Jan 06
In China, the Call of Duty series is devoid of Kevin Spacey, but that doesn't mean they won't try to sell it with big American actors. This live-action trailer for Call of Duty Online, the China-exclusive free-to-play Call of Duty, features Captain America's (and Snowpiercer's) Chris Evans.  There are also some lacking CG zombies and Gears of War style giant monsters. read

Exo Zombies
Dec 19
As way of a bit of backstory for the zombies add-on to Advanced Warfare, Activision's released a teaser to semi-explain why hordes of undead have made their way to the military shooter. Seems a bomb was dropped to finish one... read

Of course: Call of Duty puts Exo suits on zombies for DLC


Havoc's early next year
Nov 26
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare saw a shift in the franchise toward faster and more vertical gameplay. This was a change that was mostly praised. But, how can Sledgehammer include the fan-favorite zombies in the game? Th... read
Leave the Diet Coke by the door next time
Max and I were trudging along in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, when I shared a gut feeling that Kevin Spacey is not a very nice person. Max proceeded to share a story related by an ex-girlfriend, who had her adoration of Spacey crushed by that rude, kissy man. read feature

Press 'Gun' to boner
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. read feature

I like to shred 'crete on the reg
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. read feature

Ghosts doesn't seem to have hurt Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sales


UK week one more than Destiny, Titanfall, and Wolfenstein combined
Nov 10
Call of Duty: Ghosts was bad, even for Call of Duty.  There was some hopeful schadenfreude that this would impact series sales, that people would maybe realize these games are sort of lame, that the largest entertai... read
Now Golden Girls, on the other hand...
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. read feature

Ladies...
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. read feature

Conan O'Brien is better at Call of Duty than Frogger


Trying his hand, then losing that hand
Nov 04
Conan O'Brien, the self-professed "Clueless Gamer," is back for another round with one of the year's biggest videogames. This time, it's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Ever the sharp mind, Conan immediately jumps all over the emotional try-hard "pay respects" scene near the beginning.  Then, he dies a lot. Not from bullets, however -- from ruthless morning commuters. read

Previously, this was Treyarch's signature
