We are about a week removed from Thanksgiving, and the Friday of Blackness thereafter. Most of the major retailers have posted the sales they have planned, but some manufacturers are offering their own sales to every store. Nintendo is doing this with the $99 New 3DS, and Activision is doing it as well with a […]

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare comes out at the end of next week. As a final, decidedly quirky bit of hype, Activision has released this live-action trailer and given it the kind of clickbaity title that saves us reporters from having to do the work: “Screw It, Let’s Go To Space.” Watch for the Michael […]

Here’s The Big Skylanders Academy Trailer

by Peter Paltridgeon October 12, 2016
Activision has released a screenshot here and there, but this new trailer is the first real look we’ve gotten at their new Skylanders Academy series. One thing becomes apparent: they dumped a LOT of cash into this show. It may be the biggest effort ever expended toward a Netflix kiddie series (though Voltron is a […]

by Peter Paltridgeon September 9, 2016
The original Crash Bandicoot was released for the Sony Playstation twenty years ago today, September 9, 1996. He’s not getting any younger and will resemble the “coot” portion of his name before too long.

Call Of Duty Presents: Zombies In Spaceland

Activision has taken the cover off the theme for the Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and it’s…interesting, to say the least. They told us the final zombie-related chapter in Black Ops 3 would be closing up the storyline to restart anew for…something. Are you prepared for the something? While the Zombies mode […]
