Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Reckoning


Did John Malkovich just call me a bitch?
Aug 04
 
So here we are with the Reckoning DLC pack, the last add-on for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare after Havoc, Ascendance, and Supremacy. All in all, it's been a great ride, and slowly but surely, each map pack has improved upon the last. It's great then that Advanced Warfare is going out with a bang with its best DLC yet.




Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's final DLC pack comes to Xbox on August 4


The torch has been passed to Treyarch
Jul 28
 
While Call of Duty has lost a lot of its steam from the Modern Warfare 2 glory days, Activision is still pushing ahead with the DLC schedule for the series. Now that Black Ops 3 is on the horizon, it’s time for Sledgeh...




Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Supremacy


Third time is a charm
Jun 02
 
Another year, another round of Call of Duty DLC -- four rounds, yet again, in the case of Advanced Warfare. We've already had the Havoc and Ascendance packs drop so far as part of the Season Pass, and while they weren't bad offerings, nothing about them really vied for a purchase. With Supremacy, there may be a case for the pass, at the very least at a discount down the line.




Advanced Warfare players murdered 2.5 billion zombies


Also boosted 14K times around the earth
Apr 06
 
Thanks to Activision this morning we now know a whole bunch of number based facts about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Curious how many times players have boosted around the world? Over 14,000. How many grenades have been th...




Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Ascendance


A new meaning for Cyrus 'The Virus'
Mar 31
 
I've come to really enjoy Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer months down the line. It's withstood the test of time, and although I was skeptical of Sledgehammer Games' first Duty outing, it has done a decent jo...




I'm glad that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare isn't afraid to embrace the strange


The Ascendance map pack looks fun
Mar 25
 
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare got some flak for the whole "Press X to pay respects" debacle, but after the controversy quickly died down, it had plenty of time to shine with an active online community. Although th...




Steam's running a free weekend for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer


Dare I?
Feb 19
 
To jump straight to the not-so-fun part: it's a 43.5GB download for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and the promo only covers multiplayer. Also, it lasts until Sunday, February 22 at 1:00pm Pacific. So you can't swoop in, ogg...




This 2015 D.I.C.E. Summit talk explains the entire history of Call of Duty's zombie mode


Worth the 25-minute watch
Feb 12
 
Call of Duty: World at War's zombie mode was an incredible addition to the industry. It was a fully featured mode that was actually included in the base package, and I played the first map for 100 hours, easy. I still play z...




Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Season Pass exclusive DLC map is $5 now


Timed exclusive Season Pass DLC
Feb 11
 
If you purchased the Season Pass for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, you got an extra map on top of it called Atlas Gorge. Now, Activision has opened up its purchase for $5 as a standalone DLC. The special Atlas Gorge playlis...




Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc


Being zombie Malkovich
Jan 29
 
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.




Call of Duty DLC ups the ante with zombie puppies


I have a feeling you don't lovingly play with them
Jan 20
 
When Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Havoc add-on releases next week, players will get waves of zombies they don't want to deal with. I'm not referencing the hordes of jetpacking undead, or even the ones that seemingly...




I know how to save Call of Duty in a post-Advanced Warfare world


A victim of its own success
Jan 16
 
“I don't think I can ever go back to the old style of Call of Duty.” I've heard some variation of that sentence at least once per week since the launch of Advanced Warfare, and if I were Treyarch or Infinity Ward...




Xbox gets Call of Duty's star-studded Exo Zombies DLC first on January 27


Comfort food
Jan 13
 
Zombies again. It's what people know, I guess. Comforting, familiar zombies. With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's first DLC pack, Havoc ($15 standalone, or included in the $50 season pass), the undead will don exoskeletons ...




Call of Duty gets '360 No Scope' Mode

Exo Zombies

'Timed exclusive DLC weapons,' yuck

If you see this armor in Call of Duty, you're gonna die


Only the top 100 players have it
Dec 01
 
Sledgehammer's making sure that the top Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare players stick out like a sore thumb. That way, you'll be slightly consoled when you have the worst game of your life. Or, you won't feel guilty when ...




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...




Max outs Kevin Spacey as sassy and mean while we play Advanced Warfare


Leave the Diet Coke by the door next time
Nov 14
 
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.




While playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, we posit that Nintendo hates condoms


Condamned if you do, condamned if you don't
Nov 13
 
We're now reaching the point in our Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare play session where Max thinks critically about the game's narrative mechanics and then we talk about condoms for like five minutes.




Max and I have hippie liberal hipster opinions about CoD: Advanced Warfare


Press 'Gun' to boner
Nov 12
 
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.




We were playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, but we wanted to hang with Stephan at the skate park


I like to shred 'crete on the reg
Nov 11
 
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.




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...




Talking about Gilmore Girls while playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare just doesn't seem right


Now Golden Girls, on the other hand...
Nov 10
 
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.




Max and I suck at Advanced Warfare, but that never stops us from doing anything


Ladies...
Nov 08
 
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.

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.




Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare channels its inner GoldenEye 007

Everyone knows that the best part about GoldenEye was the immense satisfaction of rolling up behind your friends with an RC-P90 and painting the back of their heads with rainbow-colored death. Paintball mode was the bes...

New leak possibly confirms zombies in Call of Duty: Advance Warfare


Previously, this was Treyarch's signature
Oct 31
 
In the past, Call of Duty development was principally handled by Infinity Ward and Treyarch. I've always preferred the latter, who was able to weave their signature "Nazi Zombies" mode into their games (though I am likin...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PC requirements haven't advanced much from last year


As always though, this'll take up some space

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's required PC specs have been released on the game's Steam page, and it turns out that all that power doesn't necessarily change everything -- especially if you use last year's iteration as a b...

Not a lot looks changed in Call of Duty's 'Power Changes Everything' trailer


Maybe it's meant ironically?
Sep 24
 
For a trailer that boldly suggests that "power changes everything," Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sure looks pretty similar to past installments in the franchise. I guess the guys jump higher before using their mega-de...

$64.99
Aug 12
 
Catch that Call of Duty: Advance Warfare Xbox One bundle earlier today? It's a custom system that includes the game and a 1TB HDD for $499.99. The controller is also custom designed, and if you were like me wishing it was available separately well good news! It is. Amazon has it for $64.99.




Watch the Golden Gate Bridge get destroyed in Advanced Warfare


Okay, those grenades are hecka cool
Aug 12
 
Ghosts was a giant disappointment but man Advanced Warfare is looking really good. I'm mostly interested in the multiplayer at this point, but the single-player looks like it will be worth it this time around too.  The latest video for the new Call of Duty focuses on San Francisco, showing off a chase and the eventual destruction of the famous Golden Gate Bridge.

Video: Much of Advanced Warfare's plot revealed by trailer, and I think I smell a beta coming


Fight the powers that be!
Jul 29
 
A campaign trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare came out which goes over some of the plot points. I also speculate on some rather obvious, yet still uncertain, plot developments to come. The trailer also announced a multiplayer reveal coming August 11, which I theorize could come with a beta announcement.
