Alright, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's take on Zombies is pretty good

Back in May, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's reveal was met with an outcry of disapproval as militant fans waged a war to click the dislike button on YouTube as many times as possible. (It's currently the second-most disliked video in You...   read

Neo Cortex seems to be joining Crash Bandicoot in the next Skylanders

Looks like another retail goof, fellas! GameStop accidentally put up a listing for the "Crash" edition of Skylanders Imaginators (which was also leaked on the official website before E3), which has confirmed yet another character cross...   read

Rumor: Destiny 2 concept art leaks with clues for new class mechanics

We know Destiny 2 has been in the works. Bungie has even confirmed it. And considering the disappointment many Destiny players have gone through based on the current incarnation of the game, the prospect of a fully juiced-up seque...   read

Let's remember Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

It may seem impossible now, but in the mid-2000s (double-ohs? aughts?) superheroes weren't everywhere. They were on their way, though. X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) were box office hits as the world collectively thought "Hey,...   read

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre-order bonus is a Terminal remake

I like Nuketown well enough, but if it was going to be yet another pre-order bonus outside of Treyarch's line of Call of Duty games somehow, I'd be pretty pissed. Nope, it's a Terminal remake from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 --...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Descent

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 e...   read

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