Bungie has like, sort of technically revealed Destiny. It is a reveal, if you consider dropping a lot of buzzwords, hype, promises, and concept art as a reveal. Which I sort of do. However, at this point in the fucking charade, I imagine the rest of the public wants something more substantial. Don’t get me wrong, it is sexy concept art. But I mean, it is ephemeral as fuck. After years of murmurings, the company behind Halo sated its public with more morsels than anything else. C’mon Bungie. I want to be excited about your game. Throw me something concrete.
‘CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2′ MULTIPLAYER TRAILER: If you don’t know what to expect by now, sterilize thyself.August 7th, 2012 by Caffeine Powered
Here be the multiplayer trailer for Black Ops 2. There isn’t really anything stunning within, however I can’t imagine someone who doesn’t know whether or not they will or will not buy this game before even seeing footage.
Imma buy and play Black Ops 2, because it has joined Thanksgiving and gaining twenty pounds as perennial November habits of mine. Now I know I’ll be partying to a uh, wait what?, theme song by Trent Rezzy when I boot the fucker up.
There was a point when I wondered if Diablo 3 would be a success like its predecessor was, and it is announcements like this that make me feel silly for thinking so.
We get to learn so many neat things from the lawsuit Activision rained down on the heads of Jason West and Vince Zampella, the founders of Infinity Ward. The latest? The fat loot they were due in 2010. Lots, and lots of Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers worth.
The great litigation arm wrestling match between two video game Douchebag Titans is finally over. A day after settling with everyone who left Infinity Ward save its founders, EA and Activision have finally decided to play nice.
Activision and Infinity Ward have tots had the hate for each other since their falling out around the time of Modern Warfare 2: More Warfare Post-Modern (Warfare 1). They’ve been suing one another for like infinity (years!) and it doesn’t look like its about to end.
The creative strategist behind Call of Duty has resigned, prompting me to ask the dickish question. When was the last time we actually found anything resembling creative strategy in the Call of Duty franchise? From the DLC to the ad campaigns to the treatment of their fans. It’s all pretty bland to me.
Pow! Well here’s some salve to apply to my chaffed post-Mass Effect 3 gaming nipples. Not only is Diablo III actually-maybe-potentially real, but it has a release date. Finally.
DIABLO 3 IS GOING TO BE RELEASED BY THE END OF JUNE.
