Overwatch's latest comic isn't being released in Russia

I have actually yet to play Overwatch, so I didn't have any expectations in regards to certain characters' backgrounds. Tracer being gay doesn't make me angry or feel cheated, I'm just happy that we can finally have an openly gay character ...   read

Looks like Modern Warfare Remastered is getting microtransactions

What many feared has now come to pass; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has gotten an update that includes microtransactions. While nothing contained actually breaks the game balance or brings the game closer to being pay-to-win, it ...   read

Activision is letting you play Infinite Warfare for free

If you didn't buy Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare yet, I understand. Not only did it come out shortly after the arguably superior Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, but it came out in the same year as Doom and Overwatch, two outstanding and obvi...   read

Call of Duty physical sales are down from last year

According to a report from CNBC, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sold fewer physical copies than its predecessor, Black Ops III. This news comes as little surprise, considering the tepid critical and fan reaction to Infinite Warfar...   read

Destiny's development team just got a little bigger

It takes a lot to make a stew. Bungie, the main developer behind Destiny, hasn't been the only developer behind Destiny for a while now. Last year, High Moon Studios (the team who made Transformers) joined the effort. Now, a third...   read

Modern Warfare Remastered lands free maps and modes next week

Seeing map names like Bloc, Countdown, Pipeline, Showdown, Strike, and Wet Work brings back fond but perhaps overly-competitive memories of late nights spent with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. On December 13, Modern Warfare Remastered wi...   read

Destiny's December event looks bigger than last year's

In December of 2015, Bungie shook its loot-shooter Destiny up with Sparrow Racing League (SRL), a three-week event that had Guardians hanging up their weapons for a bit to careen their hoverbikes down a couple of treacherous courses. It was...   read

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy gets a name, gameplay

That remake of the first three Crash Bandicoot games (Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped) has a name, Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, and it looks pretty neat. I've been ...   read

Grab Infinite Warfare for $1 at GameStop (with a crappy trade deal)

Looks like GameStop has an abundance of stock on a game nobody really wants. Either that, or it really needs stock of better games, because a new trade offer can net you Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for one dollar. This deal, which runs o...   read

Hidden files in Modern Warfare Remastered may point to future DLC

Data mining is a hot craze with modern gamers. People love to pick through game files to find missing, hidden, and future stuff lurking within their game of choice. Modern Warfare Remastered isn't free from that, despite being a remake of a...   read

There won't be a remaster for the original Warcraft

I'm not one for needless remasters of titles that you can still buy. To me, they almost make me feel stupid for investing so much money and faith in a developer. The Uncharted remaster, especially, is just plain better than the originals, n...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Pretty much everyone remembers the release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Even if you didn't play it, many of your friends probably did, and although GoldenEye 64 and Halo had popularized console shooters far before it, it rea...   read

Blizzard's 10th anniversary of BlizzCon was sufficiently grandiose

I attended my first BlizzCon this year, and I doubt it'll be my last. Amidst a sea of people at nearly every Overwatch event (seriously, all the panels were jam-packed, some with no standing room, as were all of the demo stations -- it...   read

EA is taking jabs at Call of Duty through Titanfall's Twitter account

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare isn't even a day old and the shots are already being fired. The official Titanfall Twitter sent out a snarky tweet in the direction of Activision's shooter by quoting IGN's review-in-progress for IW. I feel th...   read

Overwatch is the 'fastest' Blizzard game to reach the 20 million player mark

It's safe to say that you're going to see Overwatch on a lot of Game of the Year lists. Players are happy, and Activision-Blizzard is too. According to their third quarter revenue financial report, Overwatch contributed big number...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

When something hits that zeitgeist nerve, it creates an "us versus them" mentality where participants who haven't even experienced something take sides. To avoid the stampede of rote "why [x government] is like Hogwarts or Westeros" think-p...   read

Review: Skylanders Imaginators

Just when I think they're out of ideas, they pull me back in. Skylanders has been one of the most consistent series Activision has been pumping out in recent years. I mean, it has no business clearing that goal in a way, as the entire ...   read

Call of Duty probably wouldn't exist if EA didn't get so pushy

Call of Duty is one of the most successful video game franchises of all-time, and it has made billions of dollars for its publisher Activision. But it's another publisher, Electronic Arts, that unknowingly helped bring it to life. In ...   read

The Crash Bandicoot/Skylanders crossover is handled better than I though it would be

After getting my PS4 review kit for Skylanders Imaginators, my eyes immediately gravitated towards the Crash and Cortex figures. I could have opted to meticulously make my own character or put on my army of previously acquired toys, but no,...   read
