Though Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is coming later this year, people might be more excited about the remastering of Infinity Ward’s classic Modern Warfare.
The Orion vs Activision Steam removal saga continues. Trek Industries’ David Prassel says that Activision contacted him with evidence that certain in-game assets were directly ripped from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The artist responsible has apparently been fired. Check the update to my original story for more.
The crouch. One of humanity’s most basic movements. Humans have been crouching since they figured out that going to the bathroom standing up only worked half of the time, but in video games we sometimes need a little prompting.
Black Ops 3 launched on PC with some fairly serious issues, chief among them the fact it ran like stuttering garbage on i5 processors. A week later, is it safe to actually try and play the game if you’d previously been having problems? Probably.
There are too many Call of Duty games. Let me clarify that statement: There are too many Call of Duty games in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
For many Call of Duty players, many of the first 5 hours of play time are spent in the emblem creator.
Like most Call of Duty games, Black Ops 3’s story campaign is a highly scripted, tightly controlled experience. Go here, stand next to that, shoot those guys. Sometimes, in fact, you don’t even have to pull the trigger.
Call of Duty campaigns are a guilty pleasure of mine, so I was excited last week to fire up Black Ops 3 on PC. Ten minutes later, I’d shut it down, and a sad sense of déjà vu was washing over me.
Lately I’ve been having nightmares about robots.
Because official screenshots wouldn’t dare get us this close to Jeff Goldblum’s majestic virtuosity, there is Theater mode.
Fire up Black Ops III for the first time and you’ll be presented with this message. It sticks out amongst the corporate logos and splash screens, but it’s also a nice little touch.
You might think that, after this week’s surprise $5.9 billion acquisition, Activision might be out of big announcements to make. But it turns out they’ve got at least one more.
You’d think from hanging around the internet that by 2015 most people would be playing Black Ops III on a PC, Xbox One or PS4. But remember, there are still a lotta folks out there with last-gen hardware. Now is the time to be reminded of their predicament.
Continuing the proud tradition established in the original Black Ops, Black Ops III has a hidden arcade mini-game, only it’s not really all that mini. If you’d rather find it yourself, close your eyes and ears. And maybe don’t read on.
There are certain things I’ve come to expect from a single player Call of Duty experience—bombastic set pieces, an in-your-face message, some sort of betrayal and a slow motion enemy take down. Black Ops III delivers three out of four, plus a whole lot more.
Black Ops 3 won’t have a campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3, and the game’s frame rate will fluctuate between 30 and 60 frames-per-second. But here’s why they’re making a version for aging hardware: Activision’s revealed there are still 12 million monthly active users for the three-year-old Black Ops II. Damn.
Treyarch’s announced that modding and map creation tools are officially coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, with a closed alpha test scheduled for next March. There will be an open beta at a later date, however, and they’re going to include things like unranked server browsers to make mod searching easier.
Is it Call of Duty week already? Man, I could really use a sandwich.
Few games give you the option to skip over a mission before you play it, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s controversial “No Russian” mission is one of them. Even today, the stage that made players a terrorist remains shocking.
I’ve spent months kicking this “Best” around. Considering all types of space lasers and sniper weapons and over-powered pistols. But no matter how many other weapons I consider, I always keep coming back to an antique Second World War battle rifle.
