Activision Not Happy With Dog Scooper Parody Business

Someone in Activision's legal department may want to look up the definition of "parody" in relation to the First Amendment this week.

Call Of Duty: WWII Wants You To Watch Other People Open Loot Boxes Because Of Course It Does

Loot boxes have been getting a pretty bad rap lately, with both Destiny 2 and Middle-earth: Shadow of War adopting loot crate style micro-transaction programs, and Activision has patented at least two matchmaking algorithms designed to increase the likelihood of players shelling out for DLC and loot boxes. Despite gamers' efforts, the micro-transaction systems aren't going anywhere any […]

Call Of Duty WWII Gives Us The Lay Of The Land At Sony's E3 Show

Activision never really does much with E3, they didn't even have a booth at the show last year despite advertising in the convention center, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of presence they have at the trade show this year as they do have a panel planned at the E3 Coliseum.
