Call Of Duty Is Best Selling Console Game Franchise In The US For Tenth Year In A Row

about X hours ago from

The NPD Group has announced that Call of Duty was the best-selling console game franchise in 2018 in the US, marking the tenth year in a row that the series has earned the title. In celebration, Activision published a blog post that highlighted the best Call of Duty moments from the past decade, as well as thank fans for playing.

"We've been honored over these past 10 years to see the community come together, showcasing some truly incredible moments," Activision wrote. "Whether it's jaw-dropping skills, frenetic clips or just some funny experiences, we're honored to serve the most passionate community around." The blog post ended with promises that there would be more Call of Duty to expect in 2019, but no exact details were shared.

Activision's 10-year streak started in 2009 with Modern Warfare 2, before moving on to Black Ops in 2010 and Modern Warfare 2 in 2011. Each following game's setting would take place in the near- to far future after that, before culminating in battles that take place in space in 2016's Infinite Warfare. 2017's WWII brought the series back to its World War roots, before Black Ops 4 once again moved the franchise back to the near-future. Black Ops 4 is the first Call of Duty game to ditch a traditional single-player campaign. Instead, the game included Blackout, a battle royale mode, that has proven to be very popular.

Detective Pikachu already has a sequel in the works. This announcement is fairly surprising, as the first movie hasn't even released yet.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Legendary has hired Oren Uziel to helm the script for the sequel. Uziel is known for his work on 22 Jump Street and The Cloverfield Paradox. His name has also been seen on a future Supergirl film planned for Warner Bros., as well as the upcoming movies Sonic the Hedgehog and Men in Black International. Uziel has not yet revealed what he has planned for the Detective Pikachu sequel.

Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as the coffee-drinking, mystery-solving, yellow Pokemon. The movie focuses on a boy, named Tim, who teams up with a Pikachu to track down his father after he mysteriously disappears. Tim's ability to understand the Pikachu makes them the perfect pair, but their clashing personalities lead to many hilarious hijinks.

The 8 Most Shocking Royal Rumble Eliminations in WWE History


Word of advice to the current Rumble entrants: the match is not over until the music plays. Had the British Bulldog known this, he might not have celebrated early at the 1995 Royal Rumble, when he got on the turnbuckles to celebrate his "victory." In the meantime, Shawn Michaels managed to pull himself back into the ring before both feet hit the floor; he pushed Davey Boy off the turnbuckle to secure his first of two back-to-back Rumble wins.

8. Daniel Bryan (2015)

In 2014, WWE screwed the pooch by leaving Daniel Bryan, the most popular wrestler in the company, out of the Royal Rumble. In 2015, the company included Bryan, but instead of lasting into the later third of the match, disaster struck. Bray Wyatt bumped Bryan off the ring apron after just 10 minutes of in-ring action. The fans revolted, and they spent the remainder of the match chanting Bryan's name, booing the remaining participants, and yelling "Bulls***."

The Rock's Fast & Furious Spin-Off Adds WWE's Roman Reigns

Even in Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham, the word "family" seems to be what matters most. As he tends to do, Johnson has been documenting the process of filming the movie on Instagram and used the social media tool to reveal some news that should be exciting to WWE fans.

The actor's real-life cousin, WWE superstar Roman Reigns, has been cast to play his brother in the movie. "Good times droppin' sweat and spillin' blood with my family, Roman Reigns who'll be playing my brother in our [Fast & Furious universe]," Johnson wrote. "I'm very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film. I'm also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia."

Reigns revealed back in October that he was stepping away from WWE to battle leukemia for the second time in his life. "My real name is Joe, and I've been living with leukemia for 11 years," he said while relinquishing the WWE Universal Championship. "And unfortunately, it's back. And because the leukemia is back, I cannot fulfill my that role. I can't be that fighting champion. And I'm going to have to relinquish the Universal Championship."

Cross-Play Confirmed For Advance Wars-Like Game Wargroove, Except On PS4

about X hours ago from

Wargroove looks to be an homage to classic tactics games like Advance Wars, with the added twist of an online multiplayer element. Developer Chucklefish announced that you can play against your friends cross-platform, but one console is conspicuously missing from the line-up.

In a tweet, the studio said you can play across PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, and an accompanying short video clip shows the cross-play functionality. Notably absent is PlayStation 4, which is also receiving the game alongside the others on February 1.

This is a familiar sight. Sony has counted itself out from cross-play for a long time, only recently reversing course for the mega-hit Fortnite. Even then it was only after Microsoft and Nintendo made a point of teasing Sony about it together. Still, this was posed as a beta to test the functionality, and Sony is still only planning to allow other games on a case-by-case basis. Rocket League, long requested for cross-play, just recently became the second game to use the functionality.
