Humvee manufacturer suing Activision over Call of Duty warcars

The manufacturers of Humvees are suing Activision over Call of Duty games featuring vehicles which, they say, look an awful lot like their own warcars. AM General claim that these Humvee-lookin' vehicles violate their trademark and Activision don't have permission, so they want CoD to knock it off and pay them damages. Their case pivots on several Call of Duty games, including Modern Warfare and…

Fish, Hitler, And Naughty Language: DLC Is Bloody Weird

What do Hitler, Snoop Dogg, George Washington, and Shakespeare have in common? If you said they all appear in Rik Mayall's autobiography Bigger Than Hitler, Better Than Christ*, you're wrong. Washington and Snoop aren't mentioned in that. The correct answer is that each has been digitised and reformed--Weird Science style--into your games as DLC. There's a lot of DLC out there, ranging from the mundane…

Ghostpirates Ahoy! Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Next DLC Is Weird

Call of Duty: Ghosts seems to have rediscovered a bit of the Quake and Half-Life mod scene spirit. Hear me out, right. I know it's all usually very po-faced and dull, but the next DLC map pack seems to throw together whatever weirdness its creators found kooky or funny or cool--as so many mods did. See, 'Invasion' will bring ghost pirates and mariachi revenants and…

Call Of Duty Ghosts Just Can’t Stand Those Awful Women

Call Of Duty's online world has something of a reputation. A reputation for being a cesspit of revolting idiocy, bile and cruelty, rather spoiling it for those who just want some multiplayer shootyfun. So it is to this that Activision have targeted their latest trailer for Ghosts Onslaught. To the idiots, I mean.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts’ 6GB RAM Requirement Patched Out

Call of Duty: Ghosts is a lot of things (a game, a shooter, a faithful recreation of Michael Bay's entire filmography), but a graphical powerhouse isn't one of them. Visuals aside, it doesn't seem particularly demanding in other fields of warring and faceness either. Relatively small enemy counts, linear levels, simple AI, etc. So when a 6GB RAM requirement sneaked up and shouted, "BOO," most players were…

The Missing Conflict: How Call Of Duty’s Stories Went Awry

Here's the thing. The Call Of Duty modern campaigns really don't need to be dreadful. I think, after so many ugly, stupid attempts, there's a perception that it's just the way it is, the limits of the genre, the best you can hope for. And this simply isn't true. Sadly it isn't the case for the latest release, and I think I know why. There's…

Three Hours With: Call Of Duty: Ghosts Single Player

Call Of Duty: Ghosts is available now. We weren't given any review code before release, so I've just started playing its single-player campaign this afternoon. About two to three hours in, I'm ready to provide you with some impressions. Will this be the CoD to win us back over? To realise the potential of such a massive budget, and remember what made the original Call…

Call Of Duty: Ghosts Getting Guh-Guh-Guh-Guh-Aaaaaliens!!!

Meanwhile, at Activision HQ: Bobby Kotick: Call of Duty is the pinnacle of artistic expression, an opinion echoed by all humans (who currently live in college dorms and crush between one and seventeen beer cans on their foreheads per day). But we have a problem: we've covered so much beautiful, subtext-laden ground. Guns, military men, explosions, zombies. What's left, I ask you? Forsooth, are there…

Call Of Duty: Ghosts Wants Your ENTIRE HARD DRIVE

When I first read over the newly released specs for Call of Duty: Ghosts, I heard a high-pitched wail from within my PC's case. Now, it should be noted that my PC is, in fact, haunted by an actual ghost, so I initially thought nothing of it. But then, when the ghost announced it was going out to buy a carton of milk, the pained…

Call Of Duty In SPAAAAAACE

The Call Of Duty: Ghosts' - which I don't think actually features any ghosts, sadly* - single-player trailer (below) has gone all a bit Shattered Horizon, by way of Gravity (and doesn't that look awesome). Yes, it's briefly in spa(aaaa)ce, and the astronauts have assault rifles. You knew they would. Don't worry though, it's soon back to men with sunglasses and helicopters. It's Business As…

Boo(m) – Call Of Duty: Ghosts To Have Dedicated Servers

Angry man shootyblams - that most noble of sports - are surprisingly complex business. To an outsider, it might seem like a simple matter of pointing your perpetually enraged avatar in a direction and pulling the trigger - practically killing with your mind, except your mind is a gun - but sometimes there are other factors to consider. Loadout, map, and how best to demean your…

For What It’s Worth: Call Of Duty Will Be Best On PC

It is a time of unexpected occurrences! For one, we've written more about Call of Duty this week than we normally do in an entire year. That might be a slight exaggeration, but we tend to provide more coverage of actual gill-endowed, often delicious cod than we do COD. Recently, however, there's been a fair deal of - gasp - rather interesting news about Activision's…

Hurrah: Call Of Duty Has Women Now, Also Multiplayer

Call of Duty: Ghosts may have given dogs the spotlight ahead of, er, half of the entire human race, but I suppose this is a case of better late than never. I mean, this is Call of Duty we're talking about. It really could've been never - or at least quite a bit longer. But hurrah: female combatants have finally joined the multiplayer fray! Even baby…

Feature: Call Of Duty Dog: The Preview

OK, Seriously, Are They Going To Kill Call Of Duty Dog?

A dog. A big, tongue-lolling lug of a beast with dog feelings and adorable, kicky-leg dog dreams is the most exciting thing to happen to the world's biggest shooter franchise in years. We live in strange times. But let's face it: the poor pooch probably won't be around for long, will he? I mean, these types of situations have a way of ending tragically for…

Easily Riled: COD – Ghost Dog Trailered

The E3 videos for COD: Ghosts, or COD: DOG as we really should be calling it, are apparently 'gameplay reveals'. There's very little in the way of revelations though, unless the idea of following a dog as well as a man is the sort of overhaul that might make the war-tour appear to you. I reckon dogs improve everything by at least 25%, with the…

Call Of Duty: Ghosts RPS EXCLUSIVE Dogshot Gallery

Call of Duty has a dog now. Not just one that attacks you in multiplayer, either. This one's yours, and it's meticulously mo-capped to boot. While last year's edition was all about DRONES DRONES DRONES (and occasionally horses), Call of Duty: Ghosts is trying to tell a Truly Human And Emotional Story about "underdog" military men and their, er, actual dog. Apparently an "apocalyptic" event…
