Call Of Duty Ghosts: The Reveal Trailer
Last Updated on Thursday, 23 May 2013 12:24 Written by Laddie13 Thursday, 23 May 2013 01:00
Today’s Xbox One reveal brought with it our first look at Call Of Duty Ghosts. As a long time fan of the series I must admit I’m intrigued by the shooter’s arrival on next generation consoles. While only a small glimpse was given, it appears as if the campaign will attempt to do something COD hasn’t done in years, offer up a touching story complete with characters we will care about. To help pull off this feat, Infinity Ward hired Oscar-winning screenplay writer Stephen Gaghan to pen the Call Of Duty Ghosts script.
Infinity Ward designed a new engine for COD Ghosts which will be a launch title for Xbox One and much to my dismay will continue the timed exclusive tradition of DLC first on Microsoft’s consoles. I guess we’ll have to wait for E3 to find out what role COD Ghosts will play on Sony‘s rival console, the PS4.
There’s a new A.I. system that will show up in everything from enemies to the fish that swim by you during underwater scenes. Dogs will take on a new role in Ghosts and act as a an integral part of your team and were modeled after real life dogs. I seriously hope Infinity Ward and Stephen Gaghan do not use the dogs for emotional leverage. I have built up enough guilt through the years having to kill several dogs called in from enemy killstreaks. I do not need my virtual pet and brother in arms to die for the sole purpose of pulling my heart-strings. Read more: Call Of Duty Ghosts: The Reveal Trailer
Call Of Duty Ghosts Will Be Haunting Gamers In November

Activision has officially announced the next installment of Call Of Duty and its name is, Call Of Duty Ghosts. As far as COD reveals go, Ghosts was actually pretty lackluster. A short teaser trailer with a press release stating COD Ghosts is “An All-New World, Story, Characters and Experience, All Powered By A New, Next Gen Call Of Duty Engine from the Developer that started it all, Infinity Ward“.
November 5, 2013 is the release date and COD Ghosts will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and next generation consoles. We will get to see the first gameplay later this month at Microsoft’s event and announcement of their next console, May 21. No word yet if it will appear on Nintendo’s Wii U.
I, like so many assumed Ghosts would have something to do with the character, Simon “Ghost” Riley from Modern Warfare 2. Given the title and the fact that the official Call Of Duty website teased an image of a skull infused balaclava, it was an honest mistake. In a way I’m kind of glad, Ghost belongs to a COD of the past. As far as I’m concerned he died with MW2 as did much of what I loved about COD. Silly Activision, everyone knows the developer who started it all have mostly “Respawned” elsewhere.
I’m still a fan of the franchise, or maybe I’m just a slave to the COD machine but I hope to once again be amazed by it. As we wait for more information, I present you with the teaser trailer followed up by Activision’s official press release. Read more: Call Of Duty Ghosts Will Be Haunting Gamers In November
Ghosts Are Real And So Is The Next Call Of Duty
Last Updated on Wednesday, 1 May 2013 03:53 Written by Laddie13 Wednesday, 1 May 2013 03:53
So once again we find the month of May upon us, Spring flowers, nice weather (hopefully) and the announcement of the next Call Of Duty. In usual fashion the Internet beat the official reveal to the punch. Rumors were rampant but it was a listing by the online retailer Tesco Direct that really flamed the fire. This week a strange image on the Official Call Of Duty website appeared that has now since morphed into the confirmation that “The Ghosts Are Real” and what appears to resemble the beloved Ghost character from the Modern Warfare series.
If you are a fan of the series it should come as no surprise Infinity Ward will be handling the developing of this years installment of the COD franchise. Tina Palacios, Infinity Ward’s Community Manager, tweeted “soon” a few days ago, which I can only assume was in reference to COD. Officially Call Of Duty Ghosts will be announced today May 1st.
IGN has confirmed the title and release date of 11-05-2013 through a Gamestop promotional poster they were provided with. The poster offers no platform information but it’s widely believed Call Of Duty Ghosts will be available on PC, current generation consoles as well as next generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
Check back real soon, I will be following up this story with all the details and a trailer once they “officially” become available. Read more: Ghosts Are Real And So Is The Next Call Of Duty
My Favorite Games Of 2012: The Final Installment
Last Updated on Friday, 4 January 2013 04:58 Written by Laddie13 Friday, 4 January 2013 04:58
I have been having a tough time narrowing my favorite game of 2012 down to just one selection. It’s not that 2012 was particularly a great year in gaming but rather I have difficulty making decisions and sticking with them. Instead I’ve singled a few titles that in fact could at any given time be swapped out for my GOTY depending on my mood. Before we get to that I’d also like to mention a few other games I’ll call the runners-up.
First Call Of Duty Black Ops 2. I’m not ashamed. I’m a huge fan of the COD series and I have been from the start. Is it perfect, of course not but I’ve given up trying to figure what it is my fellow FPS fans want from the series. I enjoy the multiplayer and I’ll be playing it for months to come, probably right up until the new installment comes out. Treyarch did well tweaking MP while still giving us what made the games successful in the first place. In my opinion the best COD maps will always be the original Infinity Ward’s but since that is no longer an option Treyarch has proved itself with some of the better maps of the series.
