Call of Duty: Black Ops III mixes the series' familiar first-person shooting with a wild cyberpunk storyline. The narrative breaks apart the further the player progress unless it finally explodes in a level that mixes World War II, zombies, and dying dreams. That level, Demon Within, is both the high point of the campaign and a horrifying cry for help from the game itself.

I've been a fan of Treyarch's Zombies modes ever since "Nacht der Untoten" graced Call of Duty: World at War. I've been dying to revisit the classic maps, but with my PS3 long out to pasture, I haven't had the chance. Now, thanks to Zombies Chronicles, I can play the classics again in stunning new detail.
Karakter, a design studio we've featured here before on Fine Art, were asked by Activision to do some promo work for Black Ops III. I like their posters here better than I liked the actual game.
Video: ZaziNombies created a 1200-piece, 1m long replica of one of the most unique weapons from CoD: Black Ops III, the Purifier.
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.
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.
I think in this day and age where Call of Duty has moved from being one thing to multiple things (Modern Warfare, Advanced Warfare, Black Ops) it's generally been accepted that Black Ops is probably the most interesting one, despite the fact Advanced Warfare has been pretty good.
So how are we all finding Black Ops III so far?
You'd think from hanging around the internet that by 2015 most people would be playing Black Ops III on a PC, Xbox One or PS4. But remember, there are still a lotta folks out there with last-gen hardware. Now is the time to be reminded of their predicament.
Briefly: Call of Duty: Black Ops III kicks off its multiplayer beta next month. PS4 owners get (first!) access August 19 through August 23, while Xbox One and PC players can jump in August 26 through August 30. What you'll actually be playing -- maps, weapons -- has yet to be revealed.
