Uh, maybe war does change
With Black Ops III only a week out, we got to thinking about the series at large.
The first installment I played was Call of Duty 2, but the first one I loved was Modern Warfare. I'm hardly alone. Over the past decade, much h...
Did John Malkovich just call me a bitch?
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.
Third time is a charm
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.
A new meaning for Cyrus 'The Virus'
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...
Being zombie Malkovich
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.
A victim of its own success
“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...
S.T.A.R.SSSSS! Wait, wrong Nemesis
Look, $50 is a lot of money for a Season Pass in a first-person shooter. If it was just comprised of 16 maps alone, no matter how good they were, it probably wouldn't be worth the money for all but the most diehard of FPS fan...
A couple of Naughty Dogs have gone to join Riley the Call of Duty dog at Infinity Ward. Twelve year Naughty Dog veteran and narrative design lead Taylor Kurosaki split to the nationalistic shooter factory, he announ...
Dropping Aug 5 on Xbox Live, other platforms sometime later
Activision's doing its best to drum up hype for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but it's not ready to leave Call of Duty: Ghosts behind like some sort of unloved orphan child. No, it has unfinished business, as the ...
Infinity Ward keeps getting better at these
So far in the saga that is Call of Duty: Ghosts, the fun factor of the game has increased tremendously through the first two map packs -- Onslaught and Devastation, which allow you to play as Michael Meyers and Pred...
That Departed trailer looks like someone's been watching a lot of Tarantino
Tomorrow sees the release of the Invasion map pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts, so how about we get one last rundown of the new maps. In Mutiny, you'll fight in what's essentially Tortuga, shooting off almost as many bullets as...
Mummies not yet confirmed, but we can dream
Following the recent trailer and announcement of the Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion pack, Activision just released a walk-through of sorts for the very intriguing Pharaoh map. As you'd expect, there seems to be a good amount ...
They really seem to be stepping their game up
I really enjoy the Call of Duty series, but jeez was Ghosts a letdown. While many a hater will like to say every game in the series is more of the same, it was painfully true of Ghosts. That said, the new DLC pack really sho...
WARNING: Intended for dummies and idiots only
Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts?
What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.
Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact.
But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.
There's also an R. Lee Ermey Voice Pack
Infinity Ward is rolling out a bunch of customization items for the Xbox versions of Call of Duty: Ghosts on Tuesday, April 22. Among that content lineup is a Snoop Dogg Voice Pack for multiplayer. It's exactly what you'd ex...
Release dates for Devastation on PS3, PS4, and PC
I'll hand it to Infinity Ward for spicing things up by included the Predator in Call of Duty: Ghosts with its Devastation DLC pack. More moves like that and the studio might just win over some of the fans who have moved on to...
I got time to bleed
Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their...
But hey, the free Steam weekend is okay
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...

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC was released last month for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. And like clockwork, the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game will see the new content a month later. Specifically ...
I get by with a little help from Michael Myers
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, an...

As in Call of Duty, not like, a cod fish

Of course it's not Activision's fault
Activision knows why Call of Duty: Ghosts didn't sell as many copies as they had hoped, and it has nothing to do with them regurgitating the same game every year. Eric Hirshberg, Activision's CEO, told GameInformer that the s...
