Welcome to the slowest week ever of Call of Duty news in history. I'm Damac1214, and I'm gonna try and make this at least a little entertaining for you.
Call of Duty News
- The entire Call of Duty franchise in on Sale on Steam! Everything from games, to map packs, to skin packs, to bundles, literally everything. A surprising move from Activision, since everyone likes to treat them like the slightly-less satanic version of EA.
- Activision is rumored to be interested in purchasing Take Two Interactive, known for series like Bioshock, 2K Sports, and Grand Theft Auto.
- It is currently a Double XP Weekend for Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Presumably, this is because Activision recognizes that no one likes Ghosts, and prefers Black Ops II.
- Activision Publishing’s Call of Duty Endowment, an organization that seeks to help veterans find high quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value vets bring to the workplace, and Xbox Live have teamed up for a Labor Day Fundraising Campaign to get donations from gamers to support veterans. You can visit the Xbox 360 store to donate either $1, $5, $10, or $20, and your donation will unlock you an exclusive super American theme representing none other than our Lord and Savior George Washington.
- If you preorder Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at GameStop you can unlock a Level 20 Blacksmith Armor Shader in Destiny, Bungie's upcoming game that releases on September 9th for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
- Literally nothing outside of the forums.
- Sysop trial periods - A forum about whether or not New Admins should have to keep up a certain level of activity after being given their tools. Because apparently RfA's don't actually do that or something.
- Enabling Top 10 Lists - A forum about wether or not we should allow Top 10 pages on the Wiki.
- Disabling comments on dead blogs
- Navigation subgroup template - A forum about a subgroup layout for the navigation box templates to be created.
- Covering Call of Duty Merchandise - A forum about how the Wiki should handle Call of Duty merchandise.
- Scribunto - I don't fully understand this one, but basically Wikia is working on a new way to make Templates and Sactage is proposing it to us.
- The Wiki and eSports - A forum about the Wiki's coverage of E-Sports.
- Regarding quotes sections
- Ant-Man has begun filming!
- The Avengers: Age of Ultron wrapped filming!
- Metro Redux was released on Xbox One and PS4! Despite some headaches I had with it as a member of the Xbox Preview Program, it's a crazy high quality game!
- Lockout was confirmed as the 6th map to be fully remastered in Halo: The Master Chief Collection!
- Halo 3 Gameplay was also shown in 60 FPS, 1080p, with the new lighting effects. Too bad the youtube video you can watch it from is 30 FPS, 720p, and very low quality.
- Destiny is almost here!
- Minecraft for Xbox One and PS4 are both in Certification Testing!
- There was a massive massive massive leak of Super Smash Bros 4, almost the whole roster is out there. Gameplay too.
- Without spoiling anything else from the leak, Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles was officially revealed for Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U during a Nintendo Direct!
- Nintendo revealed a more powerful 3DS, with a C-Stick and ZR and ZL buttons, to mixed response.
