Call of Duty: Black Ops III's 'Descent' DLC has a giant dragon

Damn I love Treyarch, especially its DLC packs. Call of Duty is generally known as a somber, serious "hold X to pay respects" kind of series, but Treyarch games are often loaded with silly things like human on chicken love, and now, dr...   read
