Call of Duty Returning to its Roots

Thurrott.com has quotes from Activision Blizzard's earning conference call acknowledging disappointment in the performance of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (thanks HARDOCP). "Infinite Warfare had a ton of great gameplay innovations," explains Activision Blizzard COO Eric Hirshberg. "But it also had a setting that didnít appeal to all of our fans." As a result, he says, the game will return to its "roots," though that may just mean coming back from the future, as the original CoD was set during World War II. Here's what Hirshberg says about this year's installment in the military shooter series:

In 2017, Activision will take Call of Duty back to its roots, and traditional combat will once again take center stage. This is what our dedicated community of Call of Duty players and Sledgehammer Games, developing this yearís title, are the most excited about.

Western 1849 Reloaded Released

Western 1849 Reloaded is now available on Steam, offering an arcade shooting gallery game with a wild west theme for Windows and OS X. Word is: "Back in 1849, when the West was Wild and gunslingers faced off on the street, gold was discovered in the sleepy town of Sunset Bluff. Like a coyote drawn to the scent of blood, the Quicksilver Bandits rode into town to seize the mines and establish the law of the gun. The helpless citizens have suffered, and now they're looking to you, their savior. Draw your weapons! It is time to clear Sunset Bluff of the bloodthirsty vermin!"

Out of the Blue

Free Charles Oakley: Someone Save Knicks Fans, Too. There's no saving us, since you can't fire the owner. The only difference between Charles Oakley and every other Knicks fan is the cash to buy that seat, but any one of us would have jumped at the opportunity to sit there explain to James Dolan that he is the biggest idiot owner in the NBA. Sadly, nothing will change, since they sell tons of tickets no matter how badly they stink up the world's most famous arena. It's a really sad state of affairs.
