I had great games before and after recording, but I’m mostly a bullet sponge here. While I’m repeatedly getting gunned down, I talk about the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
, my thoughts on the series as a whole, and my not-so strategic approach to combat.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was a bit of a write-off. Sure, it sucks that we as gamers got a sub-par experience due to the turmoil between Activision and former studio heads at Infinity Ward, but there’s nothing anyone can do about that now. With Ghosts, now is an opportune time to make good on their last misstep while proving that they can continue to deliver the goods even without many of the staff that originally established the franchise. On one hand, I think they’ve done just that by providing an experience that is on par with their past efforts. However, the innovations we saw in Black Ops II are sorely absent here, while Infinity Ward’s new ideas do little to liven up a stagnant formula.
Pictured above is a receipt about two feet long. After making a snap judgment to trade in Battlefield 4, I also decided that there were 21 other games that were due to go, too. I generally don’t like to trade in games. Part of that is from the relatively low payouts that stores usually give. Also, after an incident many years ago where I was robbed of almost all of my video games, I’ve grown reluctant to let anything go. If a game has any sort of sentimental quality to me, or if I feel like I’ll ever want to play it again, I’ll keep it. However, over the course of many years, I took chances on a number of games that ultimately didn’t prove fruitful. Along with Battlefield 4, I blew out many of them in one fell swoop.
Besides the handful of games I got to play at Fan Expo 2013, I saw a lot of other titles on current and next gen platforms. Some of these were live demos that us common folk were playing, while others were part of a sizzle reel. I didn’t get to experience enough of them to formalize a post, though I’ll throw in a quick word based on what I saw. Enjoy!
Though it’s too early to pass judgment on the Xbox One, the big reveal didn’t earn much in the way of good will from the Bosscast. Listen to us air our grievances about the new console and gush about the lead canine in Call of Duty: Ghosts.
