Activision closing down mobile studio The Blast Furnace

The Blast Furnace was Activision's mobile studio based out of the UK, where they made Call of Duty: Strike Team, Pitfall, and Wipeout. Their mobile plans evidently didn't pan out as they had hoped, as the studio will be closi...

The Predator confirmed for Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC photo
The Predator confirmed for Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC
by Chris Carter

The new trailer for Call of Duty Ghost's second DLC pack, Devastation, is pretty standard stuff for the first few minutes. You know -- the typical overview of maps, lots of gunfire, and an Eminem track laid over it. Then you get to the 2:20 mark and things start get weird.

As teased last week, The Predator is revealed as an element in the Ruins map. This isn't a knock-off or anything -- it's the actual Predator from the films. While the base game may have not been all that interesting, so far I'm really enjoying Infinity Ward's weird take on DLC, following the playable Halloween villain Michael Meyers.

New Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC seems like a real waste photo
New Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC seems like a real waste
by Jordan Devore

This weekend, Call of Duty: Ghosts' multiplayer will be free to play on Steam and the game is half price ($29.99) to own. There's also double XP being offered, from February 21 at 10:00am to Feb. 24 at 10:00am. These are all things I was somewhat happy to talk about.

Then I got wind of this week's customization DLC for Ghosts, shown in the trailer above, and I'm rather put off. Yes, this stuff is surely going to make money as cosmetic DLC for popular multiplayer games tends to, but I feel obligated to call out its grossness.

First are the personalization packs -- Circuit, Ducky, Inferno, and Space Cats -- at $1.99 each. Kind of sloppy looking, but okay. Next, character skins straight out of Ghosts' campaign are being sold at $1.99 a pop; those are Keegan, Merrick, Hesh, and Elias. That same amount of money can also get you four extra Create-a-Soldier loadout slots in the Extra Slots Pack.

Lastly, there's Captain Price. He's playable in multiplayer with the same sort of personalized items -- a custom player patch, background, card, and reticule -- if you scrounge up $3.99. To each their own, but having bought crap like this before, it almost always ends in regret.

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Onslaught photo
Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Onslaught
by Chris Carter

Call of Duty: Ghosts is one of the most disappointing games in the series' history. Although I didn't dislike it as much as Jim did, there's certainly something missing that made past games in the franchise appealing, and it's not just because the formula is getting stale.

The campaign was a bore, multiplayer didn't really bring much to the table, and worst of all, the highly anticipated "Extinction" mode was grossly underutilized. While the new map pack doesn't fundamentally fix the core problems of Ghosts, it does make it a little more interesting as a whole.
