Black Ops 3 Launched A Bit Broken On PC

Call of Duty campaigns are a guilty pleasure of mine, so I was excited last week to fire up Black Ops 3 on PC. Ten minutes later, I’d shut it down, and a sad sense of déjà vu was washing over me.


Call Of Duty: Black Ops III's Most Brutal Scene Haunts Me

Lately I’ve been having nightmares about robots.


My Favourite Black Ops III Feature So Far Is Theatre Mode

Because official screenshots wouldn’t dare get us this close to Jeff Goldblum’s majestic virtuosity, there is Theatre mode. Giving players free access to gameplay footage and virtual camera controls is nothing new — games that pride themselves on their visual flair have been letting players show off their stuff for years. Perhaps one day it will be a standard feature in all 3D games.


The First Five Minutes Of Black Ops III's Hidden Arcade Game

Continuing the proud tradition established in the original Black Ops, Black Ops III has a hidden arcade mini-game, only it’s not really all that mini. If you’d rather find it yourself, close your eyes and ears. And maybe don’t read on.


Black Ops III's Solo Experience Is Surprisingly Deep

There are certain things I’ve come to expect from a single player Call of Duty experience — bombastic set pieces, an in-your-face message, some sort of betrayal and a slow motion enemy take down. Black Ops III delivers three out of four, plus a whole lot more.


No Wonder Call Of Duty Isn't Ditching Last-Gen Consoles

Black Ops 3 won’t have a campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3, and the game’s frame rate will fluctuate between 30 and 60 frames-per-second. But here’s why they’re making a version for ageing hardware: Activision’s revealed there are still 12 million monthly active users for the three-year-old Black Ops II. Damn.


Activision Buys Candy Crush Makers For $5.9 Billion

Just two days after Halloween, Activision’s spending a whole lot of money on candy — the publisher just announced that they have bought Candy Crush developer King for $US5.9 billion.


Confirmed: Call Of Duty Is Putting Over $420,000 Into Australia Next Year

The difference between the Australian dollar and the greenback is fairly significant these days, and when I wrote about the amount Activision was putting into Australia’s Call of Duty scene next year it seemed odd that nobody clarified that part.


Three Queenslanders Are Brewing A Craft Call Of Duty Beer

I’m far too exhausted to craft of a joke connecting XXXX and Black Ops, but let’s just pretend of one. It’s appropriate, after all, since we’re combining Queenslanders, beer and the most mainstream franchise you can think of.


Activision Hires Former ESPN Boss To Run New ESports Division

The company behind Call of Duty and World of Warcraft is starting a new eSports division. Activision Blizzard announced the move today, vowing in a press release to come up with “all-new ways to deliver the best-in-class fan experience across games, platforms and geographies.”
