posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1841 days, 10 hours, 51 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 13, 2012 8:12:41 AM GMT
Out of the blue, Blizzard decided to post a not-so-friendly reminder that Diablo III cheaters will be caught and banned, as the studio readies itself to purge the criminal element. That always-online requirement means they're watching you, and they know all the dirty little things you did. (more)

Friday, June 08, 2012 6:28:15 AM GMT
Activision's French multimedia conglomerate parent company, Vivendi SA, is said to be considering a sale of its 61 percent controlling stake in the US-based Call of Duty publisher. Bloomberg reports that Vivendi is holding a meeting on June 22 to discuss the potential for a sale of "part or all" of its Acti holdings. The report comes from "people with knowledge of the matter," who refused to be identified due to the privacy of the June 22 event. (more)

Pre-ordering Transformers: Fall of Cyberteron from either GameStop or Amazon will net customers some unique extras, designed to tickle their nostalgic muscles. Naturally, there are two different offers exclusive to two different retailers, and I'd say GameStop got the better deal. (more)

justice for a Girl: No Doubt v Activision going to trial

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1853 days, 9 hours, 17 minutes ago
Friday, June 01, 2012 9:46:28 AM GMT
It's been nearly three years since No Doubt first filed against Activision for improper use of their likeness in 2009 Guitar Hero spin-off, Band Hero. Since then the evil publisher has counter-sued the band, claiming they were in breach of contract and are seeking to unjustly enrich themselves -- a humorous assertion from a company routinely trying to nickel-and-dime their customers into submission.

New Black Ops 2 art teases Zombies mode

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1881 days, 11 hours, 4 minutes ago
Friday, May 04, 2012 7:59:35 AM GMT
Black Ops 2 brings back Treyarch's personal twist on Call of Duty, namely Zombies. The official Twitter account issued this image, teasing a shotgun-toting female. It's not the first time a woman had to get her hands dirty, though we think this one took the phrase a bit too literally. (more)

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 6:27:33 AM GMT
Choice in a video game is not a rare occurrence, unless that game happens to be Call of Duty. During the campaign in Black Ops 2, players will have the ability to select from a handful of 'Strike Force' missions anchored to hotspots throughout the globe. When one mission is selected, the others become unavailable, replaced later with fresh 'Strike Force' missions. (more)

Review: Prototype 2

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 6:08:43 AM GMT
Last generation, Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy and Second Sight had the ill luck to release at the same time, despite sharing an otherwise unique concept. Games involving psychic powers and telekinesis were few and far between last generation, yet a pair of them came out at once, and it was relatively tragic for both. (more)

Pro Skater HD first pitched years ago, could see new content as DLC

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 5:45:10 AM GMT
While old-school skating fans are no doubt itching to pick up Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, it turns out that the idea of an HD remake is actually several years old. Hawk pitched the idea years ago, the skater recently told IGN, although Activision originally turned the project down because "it wasn't the right time." (more)

Analysts: Modern Warfare 3 sales below Black Ops so far

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 5:44:23 AM GMT
Modern Warfare 3 had a strong start out of the gate, but hasn't shown the same vigor in sales as Treyarch's 2010 outing, Call of Duty: Black Ops – at least, according to industry analysts. Could the franchise fatigue we've seen across the pond be setting in here as well? (more)

Activision Blizzard Sued For Virtual World Infringement

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1901 days, 11 hours, 50 minutes ago
Saturday, April 14, 2012 7:14:03 AM GMT
Rather than serve the customer, it seems that most businesses have nothing else better to do than sue each other over patent infringement. History books will one day look back on the turn of the century as the "Era of Patent Infringement" or something even more clever. They'll report that corporations were fighting over the rights of touch controls, operating systems, smileys and now even virtual worlds. (more)
