DEAD ON ARRIVAL: What happened to you Metallica? You used to be cool.

This Dead on Arrival is a little different, normally done about an album, game or movie. This time, about four concerts that haven’t even happened yet. Say whaaaat?!

Metallica’s 30th anniversary is this year, and to celebrate they will be playing four shows December 5th, 7th, 9th and 10th at the Fillmore for $6 a show or $19.81(get it?) for all four. Really? One of the biggest metal bands of all time, playing shows at a historic intimate venue and I don’t have to max out my credit card? Sounds pretty fucking awesome! Wait…What’s the catch?

This ‘Modern’ Warfare Feels a Bit Dated

            Now that the whole world has received their copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, a giant beast has finally been satisfied for me. In the weeks leading up to the release, I found myself exploring a variety of games: Minecraft, Starcraft II, Battlefield 3, Forza 4, and NHL 12- all as filler until my favorite game series provided the next installment in my growing addiction. I am a Call of Duty addict, but I don’t know why. My friends were the ones hyping up Modern Warfare 3’s newest features, whereas I figured, “Hey, just some new stuff to [hopefully] be surprised by.” It wasn’t until I got home after the game’s midnight release that I was truly excited about the game. Sadly though, it is -for the most part- the same Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which I inexplicably love so dearly, just with mildly improved graphics, a few new kill-streaks, weapons, and a bunch of new maps.

Old Guys Can Still Kick Ass

"Why does he keep appearing behind me?"

Nerdvember just passed, so that means there is a multitude of killer games hitting store shelves. And I’m not talking about Call of Duty or Battlefield 3, or any other over-hyped shooter. On the 15th, the crack team at Ubisoft Montreal released Assassin’s Creed Revelations. With less than a year in development, it was going to be interesting to see what they did with the game, and the direction the story took. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood came out at this time last year, also after only one year of development, and that game kicked ass. So did Ubisoft pull off another masterpiece in a relatively short time? Yes, they totally did. Read more of this post
