A massive game - a giant scope. Huge amounts of land to explore, a beautiful aesthetic throughout. But why can't I open this chest? Why am I being asked to sign up for UPlay in order to get special bonuses in a console game? You might be asking yourself the same questions about 45 minutes into the game.

Call of Duty didn’t kill Titanfall: it was already dead

Call of Duty didn’t kill Titanfall: it was already dead

It's an absolute tragedy, the number of players that are playing Titanfall right this minute. It should be a good indicator that the game is in dire need of players that the game has been reduced to $19.99 for both PC and Xbox One - a good deal, by any measure. Unless you consider the possibility that you might not have enough players online to play the game. Is this Call of Duty's fault? Not by a long shot. Attempting to find a game that wasn't Attrition for the past several months (on PC, anyway) has been a mess.

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.
