A New Take on Call of Duty

So I was surf­ing the inter­webs and came across this lit­tle gem. If you’re like me and are kin­da tired of the same ol’ Call of Duty then check this out. Keep in mind this is total­ly not a real thing. How­ev­er I thought it was a pret­ty cool con­cept and some­thing I would like to see hap­pen. You can check out the web­site

Gamer Chat? Nope, This is Gamer Rant!

Ok so Gamer Rant is going to be my lit­tle out­let to unleash the frus­tra­tion in the gam­ing world. This rant is about good ol’ Call of Duty. First things first. When I played Call of Duty 4: Mod­ern War­fare I was blown away. That game raised the bar and set a new stan­dard for first per­son shoot­ers and it was a fan­tas­tic game. There I said some­thing nice. We fast for­ward to now and we have Mod­ern War­fare 3 on the hori­zon. Here is the prob­lem, with the excep­tion of zom­bies (great idea) what exact­ly is new about the next Call of Duty titles? You get a new sto­ry right? Run through maps shoot­ing every­thing and blow stuff up. Mul­ti­play­er is dif­fer­ent? No…you pay for a glo­ri­fied map pack real­ly. My point is since Call of Duty hit gold withRead more…

Bobby Kotick… The Anti-Christ or Just a Solid Businessman

Bob­by Kotick has been referred to as many things.  Greedy, Self Right­eous, ass­hole, crook, arro­gant prick and the list goes on.   How­ev­er does this make what he runs Activi­sion inher­ent­ly wrong?

Call of Duty: Black Ops Trailer

Here is the new trail­er for the upcom­ing Call of Duty title.  It’s set in the Viet­nam era, an era only light­ly touched by video game fran­chis­es.  It will be inter­est­ing to see how this game pans out with the deba­cle which was MW2 but I sus­pect many will flock to this game just because it’s got “Call of Duty” attached to it.
