Last year saw the glimmer of a movement to get a video game based on Sons of Anarchy, FX's biker gang series and a vicarious lifestyle fantasy for many viewers, one of them me. The possibility seemed to go no further than series creator Kurt Sutter's own hopes.
Case in point: a four-minute (!) launch trailer, consisting of Mr. Greaves shooting people in the face with a wide variety of weapons. While Techland's latest entry into the Call of Juarez brand of shooters is looking better by the minute, I can't help but be wary after The Cartel. We'll see.
As we know, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger wants to return Techland's first-person shooter series to its roots. This trailer shows just that. We get to see Silas Greaves, the bounty hunter serving as this chapter's protagonist, shoot his way through the Wild West. Cue guitar ballad. Gunslinger is coming out on May 21.
There's a new Call of Juarez game in town. It's dubbed Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. Here's the game's debut trailer, which features actors. Good thing this is a movie! Oh wait.
The Holidays are upon us; Chanukah is underway, Christmas is almost here, and it's time to get those last-minute gifts. We've given you ideas for people who already have all the games they want, for people who like science and other thinky pursuits, and for your teenage son who seems pretty normal but who you don't…
I'm still trying to absorb the fact that after making my favorite of the Call of Juarez games, developer Techland decided to shift the entire franchise from the old west to modern times and make it about drug dealing.
Ubisoft's new Call of Juarez game, the one that features modern day cowboys and a Mexican drug war, has a new trailer, full of adult language, graphic violence, strip clubs, cockblocks and other things that may render it NSFW.
After officials in El Paso, Texas, made their discomfort over Call of Juarez: The Cartel last week, the Mexican state of Chihuahua is asking Federal authorities for an outright ban on the video game that hits too close to home.
"Call of Juarez" wasn't a provocative title, when it referred to the Mexican border town during the Old West. As the modern-day scene of more than 3,000 murders in the past year, it's a touchier subject.
You know, for all its flaws - and the game had many - I still enjoyed Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood. So I'll be dusting it off now that a level creator is on the way.
No, not that guy. Norm, as in, status quo. As in, we've masticated the shooting-black-people argument in Resident Evil 5, now let's pile on Call of Juarez and an unreleased game for good measure.
Techland, the developer of Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, announced three pieces of DLC are on the way but few other details. Two will be multiplayer map, the third is for the singleplayer mode.
But first the Confederates McCall head to Mexico to find the loot that'll bankroll their blood debt. Along the way, they kill a U.S. marshal (demonstrating a showdown engine for the game?) and run into another man of the cloth, this one a little more resembling Eli Sunday. Get the full setup to Ubi's wild west sequel…
