First Detail on Next Call of Duty Game, CoD: Ghosts

What once was believed to be nothing more than a salacious and possibly fake rumor now has some credibility behind it.  Teased last month was news that the next Call of Duty game would be called CoD: Ghosts.  A fairly unassuming name, though unexpected given the belief that it would be Modern Warfare 4, details were then sprouted that the game would have new elements to the MP mode along w

Script Excerpts Reveal Elements Of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 [Rumor]

We all knew that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series would continue since the closure of the central storyline in MW3, the departure of the creators from Infinity Ward, and the subsequent reshuffling IW received isn’t enough to stop the Modern Warfare machine in the eyes of Activision. 

Based on the end of Modern Warfare 3 there was the notion that the series may be poised for a quasi-reboot, think DmC, but details have surfaced which differ to that as Modern Warfare 4 could be a direct sequel.

Will Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified Give The PlayStation Vita A Much Needed Boost?

So far the PlayStation Vita hasn’t exactly been a booming success right out of the gate. While most console launches are far from perfect for a variety of reasons (defective hardware, limited supplies, poor software), the Vita hasn’t been a flop but it hasn’t lived up to the success Sony has had when launching prior consoles.  The low sales numbers the Vita received in Japan have been particularly distressing considering the solid software line-up Sony put together which catered to a variety of tastes and interests.  

Early Details On Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified

E3 2012 is officially in the books and it’s only just now that Activision has decided to release the first, albeit sparse, details on Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.  The debut of the CoD franchise on the PlayStation Vita, Black Ops Declassified could’ve been a huge moment for both Sony and Activision at E3 but for some reason both companies decided to downplay the game and effectively break the hearts of Vita owners and CoD fans.

Another Member Of Infinity Ward (COD: Modern Warfare) Opts To Bail Out

We’re nearly upon the two year anniversary of the infamous Infinity Ward incident of 2010 which saw studio founders Frank Zampella and Jason West exit the studio at the hands of Activision over several things, some of which if you ask certain people is shady on all involved parties.  Since leaving Activision and Infinity Ward, Zampella and West went on to form Respawn Entertainment and sign a contract with EA, much to the chagrin of Activision as they’ll have a major competition once Respawn finally ships their first game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The campaign mode provides an epic conclusion to the Modern Warfare 3, wrapping up the tangled storylines of Captain Price and McTavish in a crazy large-scale Hollywood-esque thrill ride. However, a large number of 'on rails' style gunner-style sequences and a rather uninspired take on the multiplayer leave a little something to be desired... At the end of the day, there's not much to complain about, considering everything was well established with the first two games, but it would have been nice to have a little further departure and a couple of more risks taken to truly advance the franchise.

The Pros: 

+Massive-scale story mode, and dramatic conclusion to the MW franchise.

+Addition of the Survival Mode is an intelligent one.

+Class-based system helps to shake up the game's competitve multiplayer a bit.

The Cons: 

-Everything feels like it leans a little too hard on the previous title.

-Campaign mode features a lot of 'on rails' moments that can detract from the challenge of the story-mode. Rating : 

To be completely honest, Modern Warfare 3 was a title I'd almost entirely wrote off. With the drama surrounding the majority of the Infinity Ward team walking away after Modern Warfare 2, I didn't think it was going to be a proper "Modern Warfare" title now with the bulk of the creative team having walked away from the franchise.

New Modern Warfare 3 Trailer Has Lots of Drama, Slow-Motion And Stuff Blowing Up

It seems like an eternity since we last received some single-player footage for Modern Warfare 3, but in advance of the November release of the game Activision has gone and released one of those blood pumping trailers – complete with the now infamous bass effect that was prominently featured in the trailers for Inception and Battlefield 3.

Combine Star Wars With Modern Warfare And You Get An Awesome Mod

PC game mods can be a beautiful thing since they often bring us stuff that either fixes the core game itself or provides an entirely new experience that someone out there wasn’t smart enough to capitalize on.  Say what you will about Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but if the game has done one terrific thing that will forever be remembered it’s that it was able to bring us the vision of Star Wars: Galactic Warfare. 

New Map Pack on the way for CoD... Again

I feel like it was just a few weeks ago that we reported the release of the Escalation map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops.

It was announced today that the Annihilation map pack will be available for download on the Xbox 360 in merely two weeks time. June 28 will mark yet another pack. Ugh, I’m exhausted by this already.

With four new multiplayer maps and one Zombie map, gamers will have their plates full.

Modern Warfare 3 Trailer Finally Hits, Has Lots Of Explosions And Epic World Ending Action

You may have seen this already by now, but Activision has released the first entirely in-game trailer for Modern Warfare 3.  The premier of the MW3 trailer is of course a big deal considering the popularity and overall stature of the Modern Warfare franchise, but it’s a big deal since we all know about the drama that went down at Infinity Ward last year, which as a whole called into question whether MW3 would be worth checking out.
