Call of Duty: Black Ops Ad Features Real Celebs, Real Guns, 'Real' People

Round two of the battle between the biggest game titles featuring a grammatical colon kicks off November 9th with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops.  Round one was easily won by Halo: Reach, which was probably due to the fact that it came out a month and a half ago.  Be prepared to see so many commercials for Activision's military shooter that you'll think its running for office.

THQ Promises Outrageous Fun in 2012 with Saints Row 3

I believe this is the first time that we've seen any type of time frame talked about for Saints Row 3. According to THQ, a lot of marketing effort and money are being pumped into the project. We should expect to start seeing major exposure in the near future, and THQ is counting on the game's retail performance to boost their earnings in fiscal 2012. In all of the Kinect craziness, some quiet coverage on one of our community's favorite series is a welcome sight.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Rumor: Dead Ops Arcade Co-op Mode

Last month we hinted at a new arcade game mode in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops.  Two listed Achievements/Trophies refer specifically to Dead Ops Arcade.   According to CVG.com, videos are surfacing for a top-down, twin-stick shooter called Dead Ops Arcade hidden in the game.  Activision is pulling videos as fast as they pop up, so instead of embedding a blank screen that says, "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claims by Activision Games, Inc.," I'll just offer you this link instead.  Here you go.  Industrious net users can probably find the videos by other means, as well.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2: More Characters, More Metal, More Mustache

Nathan "Rad" Spencer will be getting some help for his upcoming mission.  Capcom has just released some details on the supporting cast of Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2.  In the first Bionic Commando: Rearmed, two players could play co-operatively through local shared screen play.  One controlled a green Nathan Spencer and the other controlled a red clone. (How evil the clone was is debatable since he was, in fact, blonde.)  They were both equally 'rad,'  and it didn't adversely affect the story at all.  Do you hear that, Treyarch?

Kinect Hardware Review and Game Impressions

Microsoft's answer to motion control gaming is here with the Kinect. Combining a video camera with voice control and facial recognition, the Kinect looks to revolutionize the way we interact with our video games. But does it deliver on that experience, or is it merely a gimmick?
