On November 5th, the latest installment of the critically-acclaimed Call of Duty franchise is scheduled to hit shelves (pre-orders available now). And today, Activision gives us a new trailer that shows off some of the games’ new direction.
“Ghosts” sets players in an alternate-future America that’s been crippled by a government in disarray. The Ghosts are remnants of the various branches of the Special Forces. They’ve adopted the best fighting techniques from these branches as they battle across an array of terrains and environments.
Also new to the franchise is an interactive dog, which the developers created with the latest performance-capture technology. The dog promises to be a loyal and important companion throughout the game’s campaign.
After eight years, Bill Gates’ cash cow is getting an upgrade, and they’re debuting it worldwide on the Internets. Head here to watch the stream in its entirety if you’re not watching it on the XBox 360′s live stream.
A “Batman: Year One” of sorts, this will be the prequel to both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City chronicling the early years of Bats. Aside from the main antagonists being Deathstroke The Terminator and Black Mask, not much else has been said in regards to the story. The entire thing drops October 25th, and if it’s anything like its predecessors I’m likely not leaving the house come fall again.
The game drops a few days after the 2013 NFL season officially gets underway (September 17th), so ladies should be prepared to be ignored by their respective spouses for the entire winter. After watching their spoof on Scientology up top, check out profiles of the three main characters of the latest installment down bottom.
Convoluted story and all, I’ve been a fan of the Metal Gear series for quite some time. However, Konami has switched it up a bit with this go-round, focusing primarily once again on (wuss-turned-ninja) Raiden and making more about action than stealth. The demo of this game – if you didn’t buy the Zone of the Enders HD Collection – will be available for mass consumption next Friday (January 25th), with the game dropping in February. Props to OnSMASH.
Attention dopeheads: I’ve been tasked with giving out four copies of the new video game The Hip Hop Dance Experience for the XBox 360. How to win one? Simple:
Enter your full, real name and legit email in the c-section down below where applicable (not in the comment itself, unless you want some random spam bot flooding your inbox for the next 50-11 years), and write “#XBox360” as your comment
and I’ll pick four persons out of the mix who has done both as the winners. It’s not that hard, right? The contest is only open to US residents. Remember, it’s only copies for the XBox 360 as well. Good luck.
I was extremely disappointed to read the negative reviews Resident Evil 6, one of the games I was anticipating this year, received. So now my attention is focused on the next iteration of the GTA series, which won’t drop until spring but gives Rockstar enough time to, well, not fuck this up for us.
I was watching the boob tube last night and this commercial came on a few times, and I thought it was pretty cool. Extra points to those who can name all of the celebrities (sans Robert Downey, Jr.) in this clip, because I can’t.
