Next-gen dog fur comes to Riley in Call of Duty: Ghosts

Just what you've been waiting for PC subjects, realistic fur technology is now available in Call of Duty Ghosts.  A recent patch has added -- not only dynamically-lighted, soft and oh-so pettable fur to Riley, NPC wolves...

Here's today's Destructoid Show -- sort of an odd one, since it's the last time we'll be reading the news to you. Of course, we'll have a big huge send-off episode on Friday, but this is the last we'll be doing a standard news show. Thankfully, we actually have some news to discuss.

For starters, Sony announced some cute little PS Vita slims, as well as PS Vita TV, which seems like an odd device. The guys who made Far Cry 3 have decided to make something that's the opposite of Far Cry 3, which apparently is a whimsical JRPG called Child of Light. The new Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer has a dog biting a guy in a helicopter, so I shout about it a bunch. Not to be out-dogged by Activision, Ubisoft also has a war game with a dog in it, called Valiant Hearts: The Great War, but it's all artsy and emotional.

Call of Duty: Ghosts campaign trailer has guns, tautology photo

"You never expect something you trust to turn against you." Why yes, that is the definition of trust. I'm sure it sounded cooler in the writer's head.

Snark aside, as a fan of the Call of Duty series' single player campaigns, it's nice to know that Infinity Ward is still putting some effort into the mode more neglected by its players. Astronauts with guns? That one is new. Satellite-based doomsday weaponry? A little Goldeneye-esque, but I'll take it. And of course, the badass Ghosts dog attacks a helicopter, because that is what badass dogs do.

How could you not love a German Shepherd? They've got the cutest face markings, that funny lowered rear, and ears so big that they could double as windsails. They're also amazing animals when it comes to serving humans, working in every field, from helping disabled people live their lives, to pulling people out of disaster wreckage, to serving alongside soldiers in wars. Out of all of man's best friends, this breed shows it the most. If you don't love German Shepherds you're stupid. 

Fellow dog lovers may have heard that upcoming next-gen title Call of Duty: Ghosts brings a German Shepherd to the hit game franchise. The dog became an overnight sensation following the trailers and screenshots released at yesterday's Xbox One announcement. His adorable little face is now all over game blogs and social networks, and he's well on his way to memedom. 

I'm glad to report that he's not just some generic attack dog, though. Infinity Ward says that he has a real role as part of your squad, and you'll grow close to him just like you would any other friend. I'm already smitten after hearing about his work as a virtual actor in an interview with Infinity Ward's Zach Volker. I apologized in advance during this interview for questioning that focused solely on this dog, though I make no apologies for being a dog lover.
