OXCGN’s Call of Duty: Ghosts Review
Aiming high, but falling short.
by Jayden Perry
In the opening minutes of Call of Duty Ghosts you run through a collapsing town, jump to space and try to defend a space station, then watch as the world as we know it is decimated by high-powered missiles.
As you watch these amazing and out there scenarios play out, with everything exploding all around, you know that this is Call of Duty.
Ghosts marks the first Call of Duty game developed by Infinity Ward after their incredibly successful “Modern Warfare” series. Right from the word go you’ll notice the similar feeling of menus and text, but this game has a lot to offer in it’s new premise, extinction mode and surprisingly complex multiplayer.
Ghosts provides the player with a variety of modes in which to spend your time playing; Campaign, Squads/Multiplayer and Extinction.
Ghosts even takes you to fight on the final frontier; space!

What’s Next for Call of Duty?
The future examined

Back in 2011, just after Modern Warfare 3 had been released, I took a crack at what I thought would be the next Call of Duty game.
Well, it’s about that time of year again since they seem to do their announcements around April or May, so I thought I would give it another shot.
I came close last time (granted, I used the scatter gun approach by guessing several different options) but it might be a little trickier this time because the Modern Warfare franchise has come to an end (or has it?).
So, what are the options?
What does the future hold for Call of Duty? Find out…

OXCGN’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Review
The King Reigns Once More
by Nicholas Laborde

It’s been over five long years since we last saw Ubisoft Red Storm dish out the second part of the Ghost Recon next-gen console adaptation known as Advanced Warfighter.
Both titles were visually stunning, had tight gameplay, offered textbook Clancy action and story, and were well-executed in their overall presentation.
In the time since GRAW concluded, the Call of Duty franchise has soared to momentous heights and consequently claimed a vice grip on the shooter market.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is the first of a three step program to retake the market that Ubisoft once dominated, with steps two and three being the next iterations of Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell respectively.
I can objectively say that it’s the most polished Ghost Recon title to date, and it’s one hell of a breath of fresh air.
Do you believe in Ghosts?
