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

Rumor: The next Call of Duty will be set in Vietnam

Still three weeks away from the release of Infinite Warfare, there is already scuttlebutt about the next rooty tooty point and shooty on deck. Next in line in the three-year cycle Activision has going is Sledgehammer, who last developed Cal...   read

Review in Progress: Skylanders Imaginators

It can be tough reviewing games aimed at kids. A lot of people flat out refuse to play them, which sometimes leads to me feeling weird for enjoying them. Thankfully I have an amazing wife who still watches Disney movies, so that stigma is q...   read

One of the new Call of Duty classes runs like a dumb dog

That Skylanders Netflix show with Norm is out on October 28

Spyro is dead. Long live Spyro. I was just re-watching a great "Did You Know" episode on the series, and how the team at Insomniac was able to work some technical wizardry to actually get the thing to run, and found myself wanting to replay...   read

In Infinite Warfare, it's kill or be killed (and that's how it has always been)

"We like to keep it simple: Kill or be killed." That's how Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's commander guy bluntly explains the battlezone fray, and, by extension, the game's multiplayer happenings. This trailer for the upcoming multiplayer...   read

All smooth on the western front with Modern Warfare Remastered

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a huge game-changer when it came out in 2007. Even if I believe Battlefield should be the series that gets the praise for taking things out of WWII, Modern Warfare shook up the standard FPS formula enough ...   read

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will have bots in private matches

Even though it's gated behind a disc and another game entirely, I'm glad Activision (or developer Raven) isn't going into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered half-assed. It'll eventually get every map by way of a free update, ...   read
