Microsoft is apparently more competitive than we thought. As Sony grabs headlines for its failure to keep personal details safe on PlayStation Network, Microsoft has stole itself a bit of the security failure pie, warning players of a phishing scam that's hit Modern Warfare 2

"Users may receive potential phishing attempts via title specific messaging while playing Modern Warfare 2," stated the company. "We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience."

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.more

What's Up: Unreal Tournament, AC Unity, X-Men trading cards, DOOM II RPG

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. more
