Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Finale Launch Trailer!

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare1

It’s almost here folks. One of my favorite video game franchises. The Call of Duty series is the only game franchise that I actually beat every year – well, except the buggy mess known as Black Ops II. Kevin Spacey joins the COD Crew in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.  This time out we’re in a future devastated by a global attack. With the most powerful military force in the world, Atlas has effectively become a superpower for hire. Suit up in an advanced exoskeleton and join a highly-trained unit committed to restoring order. I miss killing Nazis…. Here is the final launch trailer, along with other footage from the game. It hits the streets Nov 4th! If you buy the digital version, you’ll get a free upgrade to the PS4 or Xbox One version – I wish all games did this.

blackops2_apoc1

The last Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC is now available on the PS3. I’m usually skeptical about DLC Season passes but you have to give Activision and the COD team mad props for providing plenty of replay value on the COD series and keeping up their promise of regular updates. In case you missed my post when the 360 version of this came out a few weeks ago. The epic season of Downloadable Content (DLC) culminates with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse for PlayStation®3 and PC fans. The fourth and final DLC Pack from Activision and its award-winning studio Treyarch lets players dig into four thrilling and diverse multiplayer maps, as well as Origins – the all-new, wildly creative Zombies experience that reunites players with the original heroes from Call of Duty®: World at War, and closes this chapter of the Zombies story arch for Call of Duty®: Black Ops II.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Breaks Michelle’s Heart!

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions was on my must play list of games for the fall season. One of the producers of the game gave me an Eyes On Demo earlier this year and I’ve tracked the game’s progress since that time. I loved Web of Shadows from a few years back, but hated all the other Spider-Man games because I’m not a fan of Open World Sandbox games. Web of Shadows does a fantastic job of blending Open World mechanics with story driven narrative, I never felt lost or like everything was pointless and the web combat and web swinging was pretty tight.

Shattered Dimensions was supposed to bring the best elements of Web of Shadows, while bringing something new, namely the idea of play four different versions of Spider-Man. Beenox – The developers, do a fantastic job of making the worlds – Noir, Ultimate, 2099 and Amazing feel really distinct from one another in terms of look but they dropped the ball on the most basic things and that’s Spider-Man’s powers. While I don’t like Sandbox games, I’m forced to admit Spider-Man is a character where it’s a necessity.

Spider-man Shattered Dimensions is finally Out! Michelle Interviews One of the Producers!

Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions Preview

Spider-man Shattered Dimensions first hit my radar earlier this year when I got an advanced eyes on look at Wonder Con, in August (on my Birthday, ironically enough) I had the chance to attend Activision’s Gamer’s Day event in New York and get some hands on time with it.  Activision, was annoying though because they wouldn’t let us take any video of the event and we had to adhere to so many different embargo dates that I threw my hands up and decided to wait until this week to start posting impressions.  The game is available for all platforms today. Check out this Exclusive Interview with one of the Producers. You can see my quick impressions after the break.

Guitar Hero Warriors Full Set List Released. Michelle is Underwhelmed.

I used to love me some plastic instruments but I have to say, I’m just not excited about Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock or Rock Band. I think there’s a finite number of hits you can squeeze onto these games and with the thousand+ songs (combined) available in the Rock Band and Guitar Hero stores I think we pretty much already have most of the songs that would be worth playing. I will say, I’m really curious about the Piano/Keytar additions to both games. Activision has released the full set 90+ song set list. Of that list, I recognize maybe 9 tracks. Take a gander after the break.

Comic Con 2010: Spiderman Shattered Dimensions Final World Revealed – Ultimates (Shocking, I know)

Activision has revealed the fourth and final dimension for Spiderman Shattered Dimensions. It’s Ultimates, so the four different parts of the game include Current Universe, 2099, Noir and Ultimates. Everything I’ve seen from the game looks pretty amazing. I’m going to be spending a day with Activision in New York in a few weeks (ironically, on my birthday) and will have some live video and interviews about the game.
