Deus Duty

It's Spring-time, which means the inevitable limbo that comes with a new Call of Duty release; the Wii U had two CoD games in a row before missing out on the most-recent entry.

I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of Duty With Sony And Microsoft, Says Reggie Fils-Aime

"I’d much rather be where Nintendo is, with a differentiated platform"

Call of Duty: Ghosts (Wii U)

Grabbed by the ghoulies

With all of the noise made in the wake of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's success — everything from sky-high sales figures to unfortunate ad campaigns, or the rise, fall and subsequent embalming of developer Infinity Ward — it's easy to lose sight of just how phenomenal and innovative that game really was. Genres evolve...

In space, no one can hear you shoot Federation goons

Call of Duty games tend to open with a bit of a bang, and Ghosts is no different. The opening level starts off relaxed enough, with a battle-hardened father regaling his sons with tales of valour, but it soon takes a turn for the worst as an orbital space station starts taking pot-shots at...

Call of Duty: Ghosts Wii U Performance Reportedly Drops Below PS3 and 360 Standards

Eurogamer's Digital Foundry issues its verdict

Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts may not have reached the standard series heights with its sales — perhaps due to a combination of wearied franchise veterans, a middling critical reaction and the impending arrival of the One and PS4 — but it's nevertheless one of the biggest releases of the year...

Not quite a band of brothers

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be rocking a new clan system when it launches soon, allowing fans to form cross-platform battle groups for the game's popular online multiplayer modes.

The Many Control Schemes of Call Of Duty: Black Ops II

Assuming direct control

Before we get started, some introductions are in order. I'm Rory, and I'm relatively new here. You may have heard my voice on some recent videos, and for that I can only apologise.
