After a stellar performance throughout this year's $US1.5 ($2) million prize pool tournament, OpTic Gaming can finally call themselves Call of Duty World League champions.

The second instalment of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Zombies mode arrived yesterday on PlayStation 4, trading the colourful '80s fun park of Zombies in Spaceland with the '90s vibe of Rave in the Redwoods. The Crystal Method makes some excellent undead-slaying music. I guess I didn't know.
There's been no shortage of quality first-person shooters in the last few months: Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2 and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, to name three of the big ones. Honest Trailers has had to play a bit of catch-up, but it's now covered two out of three (though you might say two-and-a-half, since it did a video on the original Titanfall at the start of the month), with Infinite Warfare as the latest instalment.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's "Press X To Pay Respects" is a infamous example of the series' use of button prompts as a narrative device. Infinite Warfare has a couple as well, including this scene, in which a character's life fades away as you hold the shoulder buttons.
There has never been anything wrong with playing Call of Duty on PC. Hell, the series got started there. But if you're looking at picking up or playing Infinite Warfare and the Call of Duty 4 remaster some time soon, you might like to know that it's really not worth playing through the Windows store.
Within the space of three weeks, gamers are going to be presented with three major franchises. If you pre-ordered and paid a small fortune, you'll be able to play Battlefield 1's campaign and multiplayer today. Titanfall 2 comes out the following week, and shortly after that players will have two Call of Duty games to pour over: Infinite Warfare and the Modern Warfare remaster.
That's a lot of heads to shoot. Question is: which game are you going to shoot more heads in?
You remember how it seemed staggering that Gears of War 4 was going to consume up to 80GB of hard drive space? Well it's time to move over, because Call of Duty wants a word with your hard drive.
If there's one thing that will live on in my memory for a long, long time, it's the many memories I have of late night LAN parties playing Call of Duty 4. Over, and over, and over, and over again.
People have been playing the multiplayer of the remastered Modern Warfare a go over the last couple of days. And the best possible thing happened: it looks and sounds like what I played at all those LANs many moons ago.
Call of Duty has dealt with plenty of boycotts and angry fans in the past. The Infinite Warfare reveal trailer was another thing entirely, however, with more downvotes than many trailers have views. It was so one-sided Activision even put out a response.
The latest Infinite Warfare footage from E3 looks miles better. But do you think that's stopped the internet downvote train? Course not.
