Earn double XP in Modern Warfare 2 this Memorial Day weekend

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2558 days, 6 hours, 41 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:08:11 AM GMT
Wait, you're telling us that you still haven't hit 10th Prestige? Is this some sort of joke? Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been out for like, a hundred years. Whatever the reason for your pathetic, amateurish ranking, you can give yourself a boost by playing during this three-day Memorial Day weekend, when Infinity Ward will be offering double experience across all of the game's cornucopia of platforms.

Blur's French TV spots are far from feminist

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2559 days, 6 hours, 32 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:17:30 AM GMT
Look, we're not experts in the way of marketing things to the French, but we're pretty sure the advertising for Blur is all kinds of wrong. Seemingly tapping the region's most beautiful women to represent in-game power-ups, arguing their superiority over their peers, each spot concludes with the ladies throwing down in a faux race -- which is more an excuse for them to show off skin than to show off the game. Have you ever had to hit so many buttons while playing a racing game before? Yeah, we didn't thi... (more)

Singularity trailer unveils the Deadlock feature

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2562 days, 5 hours, 29 minutes ago
Saturday, May 22, 2010 8:20:14 AM GMT
If we had a high-tech time gauntlet thing, we'd probably just go around turning dogs back into puppies all day. The world needs more cute puppies, right? For Singularity's protagonist, however, it's a tool to aid in the destruction of his enemies. (more)

Call of Duty: Black Ops trailer introduces a modern world at war

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 8 hours, 13 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 5:36:39 AM GMT
Activision and Treyarch have released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops. You may remember the initial teaser from a couple weeks back, but this one -- clocking in at a more satisfying 1 minute 42 seconds -- is, as promised by Treyarch community manager Josh Olin last week, "brand-new, 100% gameplay." Watch it in full after the break. (more)

What Was Call of Duty: Devil's Brigade?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2568 days, 5 hours, 33 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 8:16:10 AM GMT
We've got a sighting of what may be a World War II Call of Duty game that was built for the Xbox 360. The website for visual artist Terry Allen shows three brief clips from what Allen refers to as a " a COD game called Devil's Brigade set in Italy in WWII." The clips are intended to show Allen's effects work and appear to depict both first and third-person action. On-screen controller prompts indicate support for basic squad-based commands: Assault, Barrage, Hold the Line and Form Up. The squad commands... (more)

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 for twenty clams on Amazon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2568 days, 5 hours, 45 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 8:04:30 AM GMT
I think I've probably mentioned this before at some point, but I really did not like Marvel Ultimate Alliance. I adore the co-op brawler genre and have taken great pleasure in the X-Men Legends series. Hell, I even liked Justice League. But Marvel Ultimate Alliance just seemed to drag on and on, like swimming upstream in a river of mediocrity, right up until the point where it abruptly ended. (more)

War for Cybertron gets hot new video, hot new robots

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2568 days, 6 hours, 1 minute ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:48:29 AM GMT
Activision has sent over the latest assets for Transformers: War for Cybertron. Firstly, there's a brand new video outlining the game's story. Key notes involve the introduction of Bumblebee and Starscream's backstory. As a huge fan of Starscream (and his Twitter account), I'm really anxious to see what they do with everybody's favorite robotic backstabber. (more)

Video: Singularity's age-defying destruction

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2568 days, 6 hours, 55 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 6:54:30 AM GMT
We've known about the ability to age and "revert" objects and people in Singularity for a while. It acts as a way to destroy cover, rebuild broken bridges and age enemy soldiers into dust. We wondered before why reverting soldiers didn't turn them into babies, and now we know why: It actually turns them into an exploding pile of goo. Okay, so you can also revert enemies into a raging, feral beast but, come on, exploding pile of goo. (more)

Thursday night Kotaku posted two videos taken from the alpha version of the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Cataclysm. The clips provide a glimpse into the Alliance stronghold of Stormwind and the Orcish Orgrimmar. While the clips don't offer narration or sport any signs of life, fans definitely get a tasty tour of both upcoming areas. (more)

Call of Duty has delivered 17M map packs, but continued success 'only' through retail, Kotick says

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2577 days, 4 hours, 59 minutes ago
Friday, May 07, 2010 8:49:47 AM GMT
Speaking during an investor call today, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick reflected on the publisher's multi-pronged strategy behind the immense success of the Call of Duty franchise. A key -- but still growing -- element has been digital content distribution in the form of downloadable map packs. "Life-to-date on the Call of Duty franchise, we have digitally delivered almost 17 million map packs, which doesn't include the PS3 Modern Warfare 2 downloadable content that just launched," Kotick said. "To date, o... (more)

Guitar Hero 6, another DJ Hero coming this fall

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2577 days, 5 hours, 1 minute ago
Friday, May 07, 2010 8:47:59 AM GMT
Activision has confirmed on an earnings call today that Guitar Hero 6 will be on store shelves sometime this fall, with a new DJ Hero game coming soon after. The music game market is a changing place, admitted CEO Bobby Kotick -- it will "continue to compress," with fewer titles and brands finding success. Activision has "moved from the sell-through of higher-priced peripherals," and its new plan is for "improved economics on a higher percentage of software sales." (more)

Female Robots Represent In The War For Cybertron Multiplayer Trailer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2578 days, 18 hours, 11 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 05, 2010 7:38:01 PM GMT
Is that Arcee I see in this trailer for the online multiplayer modes in Transformers: War for Cybertron? Even if it's not Arcee and just some generic female Autobot, it's nice to see female representation among the ranks of robots in disguise. The Transformers have a ridiculous amount of female fans out there, and they've generally had to deal with being transgendered: robots in disguise. (more)

Warpath & Barricade join the War for Cybertron

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2581 days, 17 hours, 20 minutes ago
Sunday, May 02, 2010 8:29:07 PM GMT
Another pair of battle-loving robots have been introduced for Activision's upcoming action title, Transformers: The War for Cybertron. Today, the Autobots get Warpath, while Barricade represents his Decepticon brethren. Warpath is tough, violent, and partially deaf because his massive gun goes off directly in his metal ear. Yes, apparently robots can go deaf. He looks very much to be a heavy hitter for the Autobots, and will likely f*ck up your day. Barricade is more about speed, often antagonizing Aut... (more)
