Blizzard will be ceasing support for Windows XP and Vista this year

Windows XP was the defacto operating system for a very long time. I remember immediately upgrading in 2001 and not really thinking about changing until I eventually tried out Windows 7 in 2010. The removal of MS-DOS was pretty big, but the ...   read

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy out in June

Vicarious Visions' remaster of the first three Crash Bandicoot games has been something I've been looking for to for a minute now. Including the first three Crash titles (Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Ba...   read

Where do you want Call of Duty to go next?

Yesterday, Activision announced that they're taking a break from Call of Duty. Just kidding! That was Skylanders. COD has three developers working around the clock to ensure that there's an annual iteration, and it's still selling very...   read

Don't expect to see a new Skylanders console game this year

During a recent call for investors at Activision, an executive of the company has stated that there will not be any new console-based instalments in the Skylanders series released this year. This means that 2017 will be the first year ...   read

Sledgehammer's new Call of Duty game has 'traditional combat'

Where do you go from space? From "infinite" warfare? Rather than charge forward and continuously raise the stakes, presumably, you pause, weigh your options, and start heading in the other direction. In a financial report, Activision said t...   read

Destiny sequel on track for 2017, says Activision

It wouldn't be an Activision earnings call without some quick mention of Destiny 2, and during the company's fiscal 2016 fourth quarter report, there was indeed a note about Bungie's secretive shooter. Last we heard, the game was on for 201...   read

Skylanders Imaginators will not support vehicles or traps on Nintendo Switch

One of my favorite things about the Skylanders franchise is backward compatibility. You can take any toy from past games, even the very first, and use it in new iterations. I've used the same Double Trouble figure since 2011, whic...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Sabotage

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was one of the most uneven releases yet from the studio trifecta of Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer, which both worked for and against it. The campaign felt so by-the-numbers in spite of flashes of g...   read

Tony Hawk says new game is in the works, without Activision's involvement

For gamers of the late '90s and early 2000s, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series was a phenomenon. Not only had we never seen an extreme sports games be so well realized, but each new iteration added so many new elements that it felt like the d...   read

New Call of Duty Zombies DLC has Kevin Smith for some reason

I may not be a fan of his films as his nepotism resulted in Yoga Hosers, hands down the worst film of 2016, but I have always appreciated how big of a nerd Kevin Smith is. Along with fighting to direct episodes of shows he loves like T...   read

Destiny won't have a Crimson Days Valentine's event this year because they're working on 'something else'

Destiny has been in a rut for sometime. Nearly everyone I know has called it quits again after farming the Wrath of the Machine challenges, and the Winter update, while a nice gesture, essentially amounts to an extra Strike and a new s...   read

Ubisoft swipes Guitar Hero developer FreeStyleGames from Activision

Guitar Hero Live was a fantastic rhyhtm game that breathed new life into the genre for me after nearly a decade of safe plays from developers like Harmonix. But a lot of things were going against it -- the "live" gimmick was off-puttin...   read

The Amazing Spider-Man games removed from Nintendo eShop

Both of the Amazing Spider-Man games that were last released on consoles were how should I say...playable. They tried to recapture the magic of the old school GameCube-era 3D series, but had a decent number of bugs that got in the way,...   read

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

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

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
