Call of Duty review
The last time we checked in with Black Ops III's DLC, Treyarch started to slouch a bit. Eclipse was a great add-on all things considered, but it didn't shine in comparison to Awakening, which had some of the brighter maps in the entire series. Descent, the third part of the Season Pass, is an even steeper decline.   read

Do you still care about Call of Duty?

Ha, Call of Duty. What's crazy about it is at least here at Destructoid, it gains the ire of many commenters who want nothing to do with the series -- but lots of people tune in to read about it and it still sells millions. People are ...   read

 
 
Call of Duty DLC review
Call of Duty continues to be a cultural phenomenon, but often with a negative connotation. It sells like hotcakes sure, but I have trouble tracking down people in my actual life that play those games. At this point, the ...   read

Visit the Island of Despair for Call of Duty: Black Ops III's new zombie map

I've always found Call of Duty's Zombies modes confusing, but the new trailer for the latest zombies map, "Zetsubou no Shima" (Island of Despair) confuses me more than usual, since the narrator claims that the Mysterious Pacific Island&tra...   read

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Easter egg dedicated to recently retired Marshawn Lynch

Call of Duty DLC review
  Watch Video It's still crazy to me that I'm loading up a Call of Duty DLC pack first on PlayStation 4. After years of Microsoft-dominated timed exclusivity Sony finally has its shot at heading it up, and it has perfect timing with Black Ops III. As one of the best Call of Duty games in years, it allows Awakening plenty of room to breathe, and lets Treyarch be its unconventional self.   read

Surprise! Black Ops III looks not great on last-gen, turns tanks into vans
