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…

Activision plan for ‘many years’ of Call of Duty movies

Activision Blizzard Studios are planning for potentially years of Call of Duty movies, drawing inspiration from the interwoven Marvel Cinematic Universe. Activision reckon that Call of Duty could carry a series, jumping between the first-person shooter's sub-brands for different perspectives on war. Chinny reckon.

Post-Modern – ‘Call Of Duty: Ghosts’ Busted

Another year, another Call of Duty. So Jesus told Moses, and so Moses told Gandalf, and so we all now know it. The obvious money's been on this year's slice of shooting man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man after man…

CODBloops: Black Ops 2 is DX11 But Shuns XP

I do hear mutterings from some of my similarly jaded contemporaries that, actually, Black Ops 2 doesn't look as hateful as the last COD, Modern Warfare 3. Given I did find CODBLOPS 1's singleplayer to be comfortably the least obnoxious of the post-COD4 games, I'm inclined to believe them, no matter how sure I am that this is a not a game I'll ever care…

Call Of Duty Online Is An Online Call Of Duty Game

Amazingly, 'Call of Duty Online' didn't actually exist before now. They're surely the most inevitable word-sequence in the world, after all. Even so, "free to play micro transaction first person action game" CODO isn't for us. It's one of those bally China-only games that exist to cater towards a community that is even more steeped in internetiness than Western gamers are, and more to the…

Revenge Of The Subscription Game

While knee-jerk analysts (the same ones who incorrectly declared Facebook gaming was a gold rush for all and sundry) at micro-conferences attended only by a minute echo chamber fragment of the games industry ritually declare that free to play is the only possible future of videogames, any number of other business models arrive, persist and grow. Free to play will expand, of that I have…

CODBLOPS 2 Has Horses & Robots & Everything

It's 1:06 AM in the UK. Why in the sacred name of Galvatron aren't I in bed yet? Why am I posting the trailer for Black Ops 2 instead? These and more secrets will be revealed in Call of Meer's Bedtime: Groggy Morning 2 tomorrow. In the meantime, just watch the damn trailer, which has all manner of future death-machines and a level of outright…

COD: It Was The Best Of Times, It Was The Rag Of Times

My digi-sighing about the initial marketing tease for the latest Call of Dudebro reminds me of a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (Somerset, at least) when I was still conjuring genuine excitement about what a new CoD might entail. Before they were cranked out anually, when the series' creators still had full creative control, when Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's…

Snow > Gruff Men: Skyrim Is UK Xmas #1

I'm still waiting for per-platform breakdowns that will confirm the PC version of Skyrim is as number oney as the all-formats result is, but this we do know: Skyrim is officially the number one videogame in the Christmas UK chart, outselling every other game over the last seven days. That means eight years of Activision and EA Chrimbo-list dominance comes to end in one fell,…

Why Modern Warfare 3 Remains An Un-Game

Last Wednesday Kotaku republished (with permission, of course) my review of Modern Warfare 3's single player campaign. A review in which I described it as an "un-game with a core of nastiness". This caught the attention of Kill Screen's Brendan Keogh, who wrote a riposte to my piece on the Australian K, in which he called me, in the nicest possible way, an "un-player", and…

Modern Warfare 3 Single Player review

Yes, this is a touch late. As you'll know, Activision aren't really ones for providing review code ahead of launch to the likes of us, and then by the time we had it to play, Skyrim was out. You'll understand. But I've persisted, and now finished the campaign for the third of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare games, and thus shall tell you wot I think.

COD ELITE To Reach PC After All, Apparently

Good news - after yesterday's surprise that Call Of Duty ELITE developers, Beachhead, had implied there was a good chance we'd not see a PC version of the multiplayer tools, the team have taken back to the Twitters (cheers, Chris) to put right what once went wrong. Last night they explained that they "misspoke". "We misspoke. [See? - Ed] Our goal has always been to…

Call Of Duty: ELITE May Never Reach PC

It's looking like Call Of Duty ELITE may never arrive on PC at all, according to Eurogamer. After it was announced earlier this month that the multiplayer-embellishing feature would be absent from the PC release, along with lots of promises that this was to ensure it was tip-top quality and completely safe, it's now looking possible we'll never get to use it.

Call of Duty: Bigger Than Star Wars

6.5 million copies in 24 hours. That's the record-breaking figure Contemporary Combat The Third is celebrating today. Not only does this make it the fastest-selling videogame of all time, but one Robert Kotick, Esq observes that this means "Life-to-date sales for the Call of Duty franchise exceed worldwide theatrical box office for Star Wars and Lord of the Rings." Only box office, so not DVD/VHS/Blu-Ray/Laser-Disc…

Man Down: COD Elite PC Delayed

Elite, the social network/video-making/DLC-flogging wrapper for Call of Duty due to launch with Contemporary Fighting Techniques 3 next week, won't be turning up on PC at the same time as the game itself. Why? It's because you're so insecure. And so you should be, with that nose. Oh, sorry, I've got it wrong - it's because the devs think the PC's insecure. That's not an…

Modern Warfare 3: Steamworks, LAN, VAC, Etc

Infinity Ward have posted a heap of information regarding the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 over here. Highlights include some details on how the dedicated servers will work - "Dedicated Servers, allowing players to find and filter via an in-game server browser or set-up their own Dedicated Server for complete control, without being restricted by any 3rd party hosting requirements. If looking for a…

New Modern Warfare 3 Shot Heralds QUIZ!

I've noticed a mistake that's being made by a couple of publishers. EA and Activision both plan to release shooty-man games before Christmas, about some soldiers with some modern weapons having a big fight. One is called Battlefield 3 and the other Modern Warfare 3. But the weird thing is, the two companies keep taking potshots, saying their game isn't like the other. But, see,…
