We live in a world where millions of questions go unanswered. Are there really aliens out there? Is global warming really going to melt all the ice and result in the end of humankind via freak flooding? Is Darryn really married to that Tekno-Meisie? We may never know. The biggest question on everybody's minds though, and I know this because SCIENCE, is this; what is better… Call of Duty or Halo?
So you want to be YouTube famous? You want to be showered in comments where other channels beg you to go watch their Let’s Play videos? You want to swim in a pool of exposure? Well buddy, get ready to make goofy voices and faces at the screen as you ramp up for the big time, as nothing nets you clicks and hits more than putting your vidja garmez impressions on YouTube. Especially if it’s one of these ten games according to the video streaming giant.
Black Ops 3 has already been confirmed and we know that they are going to be releasing more information about the game at E3 next month. We can also pretty much guarantee that Treyarch will be adding their typical zombie mode into the game.
For as much grief as Call Of Duty gets every year, I still find myself dropping cash on it annually. And much the same way that nobody believed me when I said that I read FHM for the articles when I was in high school, I’m still laughed at jeered at when I mention that I genuinely do get a kick out of the single-player side of Call Of Duty, all five hours of it. One thing that the game does need to work on however, is the AI. Enemies are usually suicidally stupid, so expect that side of the game to get overhauled for Black Ops 3 this year.
I’ve defended both DLC and Call of Duty before. While many abhor the franchise (and truth be told, I’m not the biggest fan myself), it certainly has its place. With millions of loyal ardent fans lapping the game up every year, it makes sense for Activision to capitalise on that. The same goes for DLC; “a fool and his money are soon parted,” the cliche goes. What I can’t stand though, is Season Passes.
It happens every year. A new Call of Duty is announced, and is almost universally derided. Then they start showing it off, with some new feature or high-profile actor and the derision starts turning to excitement. Then reviews hit and the game is lauded – before there’s some sort of minor consumer revolt and the latest greatest Call of Duty, in hindsight, isn’t that great after all. I don’t want to get caught up in that same cyclical trap – but I will exercise a bit of cautious optimism. There’s a lot about the new Call of Duty that sounds…pretty good.
If you’ve been patiently waiting all weekend for your first glimpse at this year’s Call of Duty entry, then this evening is for you. Activision has ceremoniously unveiled it’s latest blockbuster entry into the long running franchise, helmed by crowd favourites Treyarch. Thing is: I thought we played Advanced Warfare last year?
Another year, another Call of Duty. Like death, taxes, and Darryn being weird, these are the only certainties in life. Of course, with three studios working on Call of Duty now, each is given more than two years to make their next Call of Duty game – and this year, it’s up to Treyarch. They’re back this year with what’s more than likely a third Black Ops. Here’s what it’s about.
The Call of Duty Championships kick off in Los Angeles later today, and this year, South Africa’s been excluded. Whether it’s because of the infuriating shenanigans that happened last year, or some other reason, there’s not a drop of South African representation in the upper echelon of console-based competitive Call of Duty. It makes it very hard for me to give a damn about the Call of Duty Championships, but Activision’s trying to make it happen. They’ve released a bit of an infographic, revealing some mind-blowing details about the franchise.
Call of Duty: Ghosts was, without a shred of doubt, the worst entry in the series I have ever had the displeasure of playing. The campaign never really clicked, it ended on an extremely predictable and cliché cliffhanger and the multiplayer failed to iterate on the tried-and-tested formula. It wasn't Infinity Ward's finest hour, but things are changing - starting with the departure of Ghosts' executive producer.
Tonight we host the finals of the Lazygamer Advanced Warfare tournament and I hope you are going to join us in the stream (Click here for the link) to watch because if these matches are anything like the semi finals were on Wednesday, it’s going to be a cracker. The first match will be the 3rd and 4th place between ExiLe Gaming vs Snow Gaming at 20:00 CAT and the 1st place finals Insane Gaming vs eN F34R will be at 21:00 CAT. For those that didn’t join us, here is a rundown/recap on how hotly contested the matches were.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is almost time to crown a champ. The Lazygamer Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare tournament has seen dozens of teams whittled down in the last couple of weeks. Tonight, it’s the formidable young guns from Exile, taking on the mighty giant-killers of Insane. One shall stand! One shall fall! Catch it tonight, right here!
You know what’s better than a new game? A cheap game. Because yes, not everyone has upwards of R800 or more to throw down on a new game, money which could be better spent on food or more alcohol to help me actually drown the memory of the time that I spent that much cash on a game that I didn’t actually like. F***ing Brink. Never again, never again dammit. Moving on, Xbox is bringing back their Ultimate Sale from tomorrow, according to a leak. Here’s what you can find, for cheap cheap.
In a move that made locals rather displeased, Activision and Major League Gaming excluded South Africa from the Call of Duty Championships this year. The reasons for this decision were still never made public, so we can all assume it's for whatever reason we choose to believe. However, people can still attend if they so wish, as spectators.
We closed the registrations for our Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare tournament last Friday only to be inundated with more registrations claiming we said they had until the 28th.
