  4. Activision Blizzard Buys Freedom From Parent Company, Goes Its Own Way

    Maybe this change will make Blizzard more likely to release things in a timely fashion? No, just kidding, it won't.

    Today in the world of money, gaming powerhouse Activision Blizzard has announced plans to buy itself from parent company Vivendi Universal in a two-part stock deal. When the dust settles, almost $8.2 billion of stock will have changed hands, leaving Activision Blizzard free to go its own way. We kinda suspect the new company will do OK.

  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts Reveal Trailer Suggests We Can’t Stop Remembering [Video]

    Call of Duty: Ghosts reveal trailer's part PTSD-fueled drama, part nationalistic jingoism, and all Call of Duty.

    I have little to no idea what's going on with the Call of Duty: Ghosts reveal trailer. It's part PTSD-fueled drama, part nationalistic jingoism, and all Call of Duty. On the other hand, it doesn't have to be high art to sell a boatload of copies, and I'm pretty sure Activision's well aware of this particular fact. Guess we'll all find out come November 5th.

  6. Activision Got YouTube to Pull North Korea’s Propaganda Video Over Modern Warfare 3 Footage

    I saw a propaganda video released by North Korea the other day, and did the obvious thing -- I made fun of its terrible production value. It was really bad. The highlight of the video from purely a graphics standpoint came when the video showed an American city burning. Why'd it look so good? Because North Korea stole the footage from Modern Warfare 3. The video has been removed from YouTube thanks to a complaint by Activision, the publishers of the game.

  7. StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Opening Cinematic Reminds Us Why We Love Blizzard

    Sure, Blizzard's notorious for running late with products. Okay, maybe Activision is willing to gouge players to the absolute breaking point. Still, there's a reason folks have come back to franchises like Diablo, Warcraft, and StarCraft time and time again. Even if that relationship should sour over time, let it not be said that the people at Blizzard weren't capable of wonders when it came to cinematic sequences. Case in point, the opening cinematic for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm dropped today, and it's just about as beautiful as anyone could hope.

  8. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 PC Gamers Surprised to Find Mass Effect 2 Instead

    Today is the day. A vast number of gamers will be excitedly mashing buttons on controllers thanks to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hitting shelves. Many keyboards may be suspiciously silent, however, thanks to a little problem with the PC version's second disc. Following traditional installation instructions, the game asks for Disc 2 in order to complete its setup. Unfortunately, it looks like some of these discs are actually copies of Mass Effect 2 instead. Oops.

  9. Modern Warfare 2 Map Removed After Complaints by Perfectly Reasonable Muslim Gamers

    This past weekend, one of the popular multiplayer maps for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 disappeared from the regular rotation. Favela, as the map is called, was taken down by developer Infinity Ward, and by extension publisher Activision, because Muslim gamers had found and complained about a bit of offensive imagery present in the level. See, one of the decorative frames in a bathroom found in the level contains a quote from the Prophet Muhammad -- which is a big no-no in the Islamic faith.

  10. Activision Effectively Shutters Prototype Developer

    It's hard to say what's worse: Closing a developer not long after they've put out a new game or significantly reducing their staff to the point where they only serve to help with projects headed by other studios. Either way, Radical Entertainment -- the folks behind the Prototype franchise -- will no longer have work on games of their own. As of yesterday, they are effectively shuttered by their parent company Activision and another one bites the dust.
