Bro! It's Megan Fox sniping in a Call of Duty video

Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts hits this Tuesday, and I can't think of a better way to get hype than with a video that shows absolutely no gameplay. Joking aside, while the live-action trailer "Epic Night Out" is nothing ...

Watch eight minutes of Call of Duty's alien horde mode

GameSpot has a quick look of Call of Duty: Ghosts' new Extinction mode, which seems to be Infinity Ward's take on Treyarch's zombies -- with aliens in it. But if you take a closer look at Extinction, it looks like there's a ...

Aliens invade Call of Duty: Ghosts in new Extinction mode photo
Aliens invade Call of Duty: Ghosts in new Extinction mode
by Jordan Devore

[Update: Official trailer added. Extinction is described as a "1-4 player cooperative game mode featuring a unique blend of fast-paced survival action, FPS base defense, scavenging and class leveling." Get to the chopper.]

I've always found Treyarch's Zombies mode to be a fun bonus for the studio's otherwise fairly serious Call of Duty games and have longed for Infinity Ward to offer something similar in its titles. Seems we may be getting exactly that in Call of Duty: Ghosts if an image of a loading screen for "Extinction" (shown below for the spoiler averse) is to be believed.

Aliens? Yeah, looks like it. There's been an official teaser that matches the design of the creature as well as achievements for Ghosts that reference the mode. Neat. I'd assume we'll hear more from Infinity Ward leading up to launch but, if not, that's only a week off.

Eminem's new video is packed with COD: Ghosts imagery

[Video watchers: Explicit lyrics warning!] It has been awhile since we've seen a music video that was so heavy on the cross-promotion. Somehow, Eminem's "Survival" crams so much Call of Duty: Ghosts promotion in without bein...

Call of Duty: Ghosts' Squads sounds good on paper

I've been out of the game for long enough that Call of Duty: Ghosts' Squads sounds appealing. Not to the point where I'm as enthusiastic as this announcer guy, but you get the point. Squads is a set of modes centered around ...

Joining Modern Warfare's Mile High Club - Challenge Scot! photo
Joining Modern Warfare's Mile High Club - Challenge Scot!
by Jamie McGinn

This week's challenge is in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in which I must beat the "Mile High Club" scenario on veteran. I've never really been super into the Call of Duty games, so my chances of successfully completing this rather notorious challenge are not high!

If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!
