CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTSI'm way behind on my CALL OF DUTY playing. In fact, it's been a bit since I fired up the Xbox 360 (I still need an Xbox One) for some CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS action, and I need to catch up on all the DLC goodies, like the new personalization and voice packs that hit the game today. Among them, a "1987 Customization Pack" (which is pretty neon), and the first-ever voice packs, which bring in SNOOP DOGG and R. LEE ERMEY to narrate the multiplayer action. Check out some sneak-previews, below...

If you follow me on networks like Instagram and Twitter (and like Wooderson said, "it would be cooler if you did"), then you probably already know that I'm digging MEGA BLOKS' Collectors Series Line of CALL OF DUTY building sets. Unlike most of the other MEGA BLOKS products that I often cover here on The Rock Father, these are geared toward "older" kids... like me. Technically, the CALL OF DUTY collection is recommended for ages 10+, but I'm filing them as sets "For Grownups," and having built three of them already: Mountain Recon; Drone Attack; and Chopper Strike (all sent to me for review) - I'm already looking forward to doing more.

It's pretty appropriate that the new trailer for CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS comes just prior to Halloween. The reason? It brings with it some monstrous aliens in the new "Extinction" mode - a world that finds the planet under siege from some critters that will bring to mind everything from ALIENS, to STARSHIP TROOPERS. No Zombies here, but it's still looking quite deadly. Family-friendly this one isn't, so use caution if viewing near the kids. It's part of "Daddy Shooting Pixels" here on The Rock Father...

e3125The crew over at Activision Publishing hit The Rock Father with details on their E3 plans, which includes CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS (a game I plan on playing this November), SKYLANDERS SWAP FORCE (this holidays big hit?), and DESTINY (a game I need to look into further. Along with the announcement comes confirmation that these games will be available for the much-anticipated XBOX ONE from Microsoft (I need one of those) and the PLAYSTATION 4 from Sony. Check out the slate below.

Those expecting the next installment of the popular CALL OF DUTY franchise to be MODERN WARFARE 4 are in for a shock: It's not happening. "Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we're not resting on our laurels," said Mark Rubin, executive producer of developer Infinity Ward. Instead, November 5 will usher in a new sub-brand with the release of CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS - an "all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast of characters, all powered by a new, next generation Call of Duty engine that redefines the series for the next generation."
