posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2312 days, 9 hours, 32 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 26, 2011 9:22:24 AM GMT
If you're a PS3 player troubled by Call of Duty: Black Ops bugs, take heart in the fact that Treyarch is listening to you. Particularly those of you troubled enough to submit a complaint to the government, we're guessing. Last night, the developer issued a new patch for Black Ops, fixing various freezing, "infinite loading screen," and other issues. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2312 days, 9 hours, 59 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 26, 2011 8:54:56 AM GMT
Do you primarily use the GOG platform as a channel through which you can build virtual armies to destroy neighboring, virtual civilizations? There are certainly plenty of games on the network that will let you do just that -- and today, that list became one entry longer. Auran's 1997 strategy title Dark Reign: The Future of War (and its expansion, The Rise of the Shadowhand) both arrived on the GOG store today for $9.99. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2333 days, 8 hours, 34 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 05, 2011 10:19:39 AM GMT
According to new documents released today, the ongoing legal battle between the creators of Call of Duty and the franchise's publishers is beginning to take its toll on those involved. Last month, Activision sought to expand the scope of the lawsuit by including Electronic Arts, the publisher that is now home to the new studio run by Jason West and Vince Zampella, as party to the case.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2349 days, 8 hours, 24 minutes ago
Monday, December 20, 2010 10:30:13 AM GMT
The Major Nelson podcast brings the first details of the initial, inevitable Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack. "First Strike" will be released on Xbox Live on February 1, 2011 -- as a timed exclusive, so give it about a month if you want it on another platform. The pack includes four competitive maps: "Discovery," based on the Reznov mission and taking place in an Antarctic research station; "Kowloon" set in, of course, Kowloon, this time on rooftops; "Berlin Wall," a fight at Checkpoint Charlie; and "St...

Connectivity fix for Wii version of Call of Duty: Black Ops incoming

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2379 days, 10 hours ago
Saturday, November 20, 2010 8:53:54 AM GMT
It's rare for games on the Wii to get any post-launch support, thanks largely to the console's proclivity for overly complicated digital distribution, as well as its relatively meager amount of internal storage. Treyarch isn't letting those hurdles stop it from fixing a few connectivity issues in the Wii version of Call of Duty: Black Ops: community manager Josh Olin has announced that "We have fixed many of the problems you have reported and are currently testing those fixes in anticipation of releasing...

Call of Duty: Black Ops review: The great battle

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2390 days, 8 hours, 30 minutes ago
Tuesday, November 09, 2010 10:24:06 AM GMT
Maybe it's our competitive streak. Maybe it's the fact that we're constantly battling, over leaderboards and in deathmatches, that pushes us to compare one console against another, one franchise title against its peers, or even, as the industry has grown and matured, one developer's artistic creation against another's. Even when developers work in huge teams for years to craft a great experience, we're children of numbers and "less or greater than," of rankings and high scores and levels. Someone's got t... (more)

Activision has a good thing going with this Call of Duty franchise thing. And what does Activision do when it's got a good thing that makes they money? The milk it until its a hollow husk of its former self, curled up on the floor wishing someone would just kill it. In a recent conference call Activision Blizzard CFO Thomas Tippl confirmed that the company would be pretty much doing just that. (more)

Friday, November 05, 2010 8:28:11 AM GMT
Tuesday Blizzard announced that all StarCraft II accounts were granted one free name change. The company originally said back in August 2010 that the feature was in the works--essentially a "fix" for players who chose character names that typically didn't represent their multiplayer aliases because they were unaware of how character names were used.

Activision tries to play nice with pirates

Monday, October 25, 2010 2:20:34 AM GMT
There's no stopping the pirating of games. It's going to happen whether it should or shouldn't. However, the tactics used against pirates can vary greatly. Most of the time a company being pirated comes down hard on pirate, but Activision is reportedly trying something different. They're trying to be nice. (more)

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 7:38:39 AM GMT
Blizzard kicked off October by suspending or banning around 5,000 gamers from its just-released sci-fi RTS StarCraft II for using hacks, thus violating Blizzard's end-user license agreement. Now the developer is going after "Permaphrost," "Cranix," and "Linuxawesome" for allegedly developing and selling tools for StarCraft II hacks. According to the lawsuit, the three programmers have violated copyright law, Battle.net terms of use, and the end-user license agreement. (more)
