Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Launch Trailer Is Actually 101% AMAZING

Well Treyarch, take your seat on the throne

Looks like you've earned your place in the Call Of Duty elite. We still need to actually, y'know, play Call Of Duty: Black Ops to make sure but, man, we don't think we've ever been this excited for a Call Of Duty game. Infinity Ward — certainly as we knew them — are gone, and it looks like it's time for Treyarch to take their place as the premium Call..

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Protagonist Actually Says Words

Has a Call Of Duty protagonist ever talked? We're sure they have, but we can't think of particular instance

Sure, Soap ended up talking in Modern Warfare 2, but we don't think he ever said anything when he was the main character of Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Either way, as far as we can remember, Call Of Duty protagonists are pretty mute. Call Of Duty: Black Ops will change all that..

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' "Gun Game" Multiplayer Playlist Looks Like A Ton Of Fun

In "Gun Game" - one of Call Of Duty: Black Ops' new multiplayer game types - every kill matters

Not for your precious KDR or XP statistics, but because every kill rewards you with a new weapon. This new footage which has leaked onto YouTube shows the new game-type in action, and it looks like a ton of fun. The player starts of with a pistol before moving up through the ranks and gradually unlocking..

James Bond 007: Blood Stone To Hit UK Retailers On November 5th

That's soon, right? We knew James Bond 007: Blood Stone was slated for this year, but it always felt like it was some way off

Mainly because the game only got announced a couple of months ago and, despite countless developer videos, not a lot's been said about the game. Still, it's out in two weeks according to VG247. The site also claims that there's no demo planned, so you're going to have to go..

Expect The Following From Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Multiplayer Component...

InsideXBOX (we know, we know) recently got to head down to Treyarch to get a good look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops' multiplayer component -- despite the publication's affiliation with the "enemy", we thought you guys would appreciate the info too

There's plenty of footage in the trailer, including some background on design decisions and some welcome news regarding killstreaks. We still reckon this..

If There's One Element Of James Bond 007: Blood Stone That's Going To Be Amazing...

.. It'll be the car sequences. With a studio like Bizarre Creations at the helm, there's absolutely no way the racing segments fail. This is their bread and butter. James Bond 007: Blood Stone continues to look really interesting to us. We're big Bond fans and we even enjoyed the last 007 game, Quantum Of Solace. Bizarre's a great studio, hopefully this exceeds expectations.

Rumour: Is This Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Zombie Component?

Is This Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Zombie Component?

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' zombie mode was only recently confirmed by Activision, but footage of the mode is already hitting the Internet

The ten minute video, embedded after the jump, appears to show someone playing a slice of the new game's zombie component. Given how much of this game is leaking right now, we're going to say it's real. Though it's hard to make out too much detail due to the grainy..

Grab This Call Of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer Footage Before Activision Pull It

Call Of Duty: Black Ops isn't out for a few more weeks

As such, Activision want to keep the content a surprise. So YouTube videos of people playing the game don't go down to well with the PR folks over at Acti's head-office. As such, you should digest this footage as quickly as you can. Don't say we didn't warn you if a big "This content has been removed," pops up when you eagerly press..

Already released in North America, the game comes with its own proprietary wireless rod controller but is also fully compatible with Move for all...

Guess what game is out today in America? EA's Medal Of Honor

Guess who's decided to release a story trailer for their own first-person shooter? Activision. Cue bombastic action and big guns in this Call Of Duty: Black Ops story trailer.

According to a report on Kotaku this arvo (read it in an Australian accent, it works - we think), Raven Software has dismissed 40 employees

The studio behind one of this year's best shooters, Singularity, is thought to be working on the next batch of Call Of Duty DLC. Yeah, life sucks right? Activision commented that Raven is "realigning its workforce to better reflect the studio's upcoming..

European DJ Hero 2 Bundles To Include A Free Copy Of The Original Game

Activision's confirmed that European copies of the DJ Hero 2 bundle - both the turn-table and party sets - will come with an additional bonus while stocks last: a copy of the original DJ Hero game

That means if you're coming into the series fresh, you'll start out with a whopping 170 mixes. Not bad, right? The problem is, both bundles are still extortionate. But hey, if you like free things...

Activision's announced that the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops will launch with 3D television support for those with compatible home theater set-ups

The functionality will be available out of the box via an options screen. It's a neat little bonus for those with 3D TVs and a particularly surprising announcement (who though CoD would go 3D eh?). Going by the slew of hands-on impressions published..

Do You Like Watching Cars Drive In Circles? Then You'll Like NASCAR: The Game 2011!

Here's the debut trailer for the recently announced NASCAR: The Game 2011 from Activision and Eutechnyx

It's heavy on CGI, but from what we could tell, there are cars driving around an oval circuit. Which is really all you need for NASCAR. This trailer has some cool audio work, mind. We hope that's represented in the final product. What else do you want us to say? It's a video game. About cars..

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Multiplayer Customisation Looks Awesome

Treyarch are doing a lot with this year's Call Of Duty title

By incorporating currency and creation mechanics, players will be able to develop their own online identity when playing Call Of Duty: Black Ops — which is very exciting to us. In games of this kind, there's always the want to show off. Now you'll be able to do so with custom emblems, weapons, dots and character types.

Activision & Eutechnyx Announce NASCAR: The Game 2011

After much ado about, erm, something; Activision has announced that they will be rebooting the NASCAR franchise with NASCAR: The Game 2011

EA previously held the racing license, but decided to terminate their affiliation with the American past-time. Most interestingly, the game will be developed here in the UK by Eutechnyx - a British studio with a series of racing titles to their credit. Even more..

Move Is Not a Peripheral Killer, says Activision Boss

Surprise surprise

Move can become a huge number of in-game items – not shovels or whips though, remember – but that doesn't mean Activision boss Bobby Kotick is worried it spells the end for his company's wide array of plastic gameplay enhancers. Speaking to Edge Online, Kotick said that although Move offers some fantastic experiences it can't...
