Xbox Live down: Call of Duty in effect

Xbox Live down: Call of Duty in effect

Now that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is out, the same outage that seems to happen after every major release is in full effect. Remember when the Alpha for Destiny was released? Same sort of situation. Or so it seems. There appears to be a relatively minor problem going on with some Call of Duty players attempting to play the offline campaign while Xbox Live is down. While it certainly should work just fine, it's appearing that even offline is offline, so to speak.

Grand Theft Auto V FPS release coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One

There's little doubt now that the creators of Grand Theft Auto 5 were influenced by the early versions of the first person shooter mode modification to their game released earlier this year.

Each of the three main players of the game are given their own first-person perspective, making this a... transforming FPS? All will be revealed soon, and very soon - just as soon as RockStar deems the world worthy, it would seem.

HP Omen gaming notebook rivals Razer for the mainstream

HP Omen gaming notebook rivals Razer for the mainstream

HP may not be the first name you think of when you consider meaty gaming notebooks, but the company is hoping to change all that with the HP Omen. Taking on potent rivals like Razer's Blade and models from Alienware, the Omen seems determined to strike as much of a balance as it can between power and affordability (something we can't always say about the gaming competition). So, there's no outlandish 4K display, but that does help with the price of entry.

Hardcore: an action film styled like an FPS game

Hardcore: an action film styled like an FPS game

When we watch movies, we expect them to follow a certain conventional style; the same goes for FPS video games. YouTube is full of videos themed after the latter, mixing live action with the first-person-shooter style common in games like those in the Call of Duty franchise. Not many of those videos match the quality and consistent styling of a new live-action movie tease called "Hardcore", which hopes to ultimately be the "First Ever Action POV Feature Film", according to the maker's Indiegogo campaign.

Microsoft Ventures founder exits, forms gaming group: Unikrn

We've spoken about Rahul Sood before. He joined Microsoft back in 2010, making it official in 2011. Back then this man was asked, as he puts it, "to join Microsoft with the mission to create or be part of something amazing." He did that, it's done, and he's leaving the company now a little under four years later. And what'll have left behind at Microsoft? A massive undertaking - something that wasn't there before he arrived. Now he heads to a whole new company entirely.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Funeral

There's nothing like pressing "X" to pay respects to your best buddy after a lengthy, deadly battle. That's what the newest Call of Duty knows, and that's what the newest Call of Duty shows in Advanced Warfare's funeral. It's not the first time you've been able to "pay respects" to a fallen comrade in a game, but it is the most recent. And it's reminding us of the lines the video games cross on a regular basis. With Kevin Spacey, to boot.

Xbox One price gets the holiday ax, bundles available too

As mentioned last week, Microsoft is cutting down the price for the Xbox One, albeit temporarily only. The $50 discount, which brings the Kinect-less package down to $349 at the lowest, will be available across all units and bundles. The official statement is that this is to match the upcoming holiday season and to save gamers from grueling long Black Friday lines by buying their packages early. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt that this isn't about the Xbox One's sales trailing behind its PS4 rival.
