Call of Duty: Black Ops rivals any Hollywood blockbuster

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
When the drama between Activision and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward began to unfold this summer, hardcore fans worried about the future of the Call of Duty franchise.

For the first decade of its existence, rap music was deemed a fad, another pop culture trend to soon fade like disco and pet rocks. After rap music defied the prediction of its demise, its musicality came into question. Was it real music? After selling billions of albums, topping radio play and dance club charts, getting Grammy recognition and having rap artists inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame, there’s no question that it is music.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West could be the sleeper hit of the fall

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno

Among games like Halo, Call of Duty, Rock Band and other top-tier video game franchises, it’s easy for a game like Enslaved: Odyssey to the West to be ignored. But the game, a third-person action-adventure, takes place 150 years from now in a post-apocalyptic America, what’s a better recipe for a game than that?
