Can you feel it? Call of Duty Season is almost here, and as the October 12th release of Black Ops 4 approaches, there's a private Beta for the new Blackout mode on the way. Starting Monday, September 10th, players can get their first hands-on experience with Blackout in the Blackout Private Beta, beginning first on PlayStation 4 with Xbox and PC held until later in the week. The Private Beta will provide valuable user feedback and data as Activision and developer Treyarch prepare to release what's been touted as "the deepest, most engaging Call of Duty game ever." Those who participated in the multiplayer beta automatically have access to the Blackout beta. Check out the trailer below and be sure to check back soon - The Rock Father™ will be giving out Beta Codes shortly!
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.
If you've been following my "Daddy Shooting Pixels" posts in the Toys & Games section of The Rock Father, then you're probably well-aware of the fact that I'm really looking forward to the release of CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2. Now comes word from Activision that the soundtrack to the game is getting a major push as well, and will hit iTunes on November 13th, the same day that the game hits retail. With a main theme by Trent Reznor of NINE INCH NAILS and a score by Jack Wall, the COD:BO2 soundtrack should be pretty good.
As I've noted before, I can't always be family-friendly all the time here on The Rock Father, and that's because every once in awhile, Daddy has to shoot some pixels. It's no secret that I've been a big fan of the CALL OF DUTY franchise for quite some time, and come November 13, there's a 100% chance that the XBOX 360 will be fired up and ready to rock when CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2 arrives. Last night, Activision unleashed the new live-action trailer for the game, and today the Guy Ritchie-directed clip called "Surprise" can be seen below.
Stepping out of family-friendly and back into Dad Zone here, it's no secret that I've been a big fan of the CALL OF DUTY franchise. That said, I thought the last installment needed some work, but the forthcoming CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS II looks to be just what the doctor ordered. After a long day of changing diapers and prepping bottles, sometimes a guy just has to blow up some pixels, and with a story by David S. Goyer (co-writer of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) and music by Trent Reznor (NINE INCH NAILS), it would seem the fans have been listened to. Check out the new 'Villain" trailer below. The Rock Father will be playing this come November...
