If you listen very closely in the distance, you just might be able to hear the faint sound of sleigh bells headed in your direction. As the Holiday season moves toward it's thrilling conclusion with the arrival of Christmas on December 25th, millions of gift-givers are still seeking that perfect item for that special someone - and there's still plenty of time to get something cool, and at a cool price, too. My friends at GameStop are blazing toward Christmas with new markdowns and specials on some of the hottest games of the season, and they're also are great stop for some fun stocking stuffers - like Funko Pop! Vinyls, a few of which I picked up at our local GameStop just the other night. With last-minute convenience in mind, I'm giving you a few picks that are available now at GameStop - but that's not all! You could win a $50 GameStop Gift Card good for a little after-Christmas shopping! Ready to be a Holiday Hero?
Ladies and Gentlemen, it's CALL OF DUTY season. While I don't consider myself much of a gamer these days (casual player, due to time constraints), the one time of the year that I religiously stock-up the office fridge with Mountain Dew Game Fuel and fire-up the Xbox 360 on a heavier-than-average basis is when a new CALL OF DUTY title is released. For 2015, Treyarch and Activision have brought forth CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III, and it's officially a reason for me to upgrade to the current-generation Xbox One, or a fine title for Playstation 4 users - reason being, the game was developed for the newer systems, so PS3 or Xbox 360 users are only offered a feature-limited version of the game, one devoid of campaign mode. For that reason, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine is serving-up a Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway that will offer readers a shot at winning CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III in their choice of Xbox One or Playstation 4 editions only, so that players will get the full experience this holiday season! Ready to "Seize Glory?"
There's a November Holiday that I look forward to each year, and that's the release of a new CALL OF DUTY game. This year, it looks as if I'll have to finally make the upgrade to an XBOX ONE, though, as CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III has been revealed for a November 6 release (dubbed "The New Black Friday"), and this time around it's going current-gen-only. Available for Sony PLAYSTATION 4, Microsoft XBOX ONE and PC, the game's first reveal trailer can be viewed below, and pre-orders are already up through Amazon, Gamestop and Best Buy.
