Call of Duty 4 multiplayer tips for surviving Bog and Bloc

Remember the first video tutorial for Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat that I showed? Well, we have the second part right here. This time, the maps tackled are Bog and Bloc. I don’t think this batch is as good as the first one, but it still provides good insight on the levels nonetheless.

Call of Duty 4 ending is short and vague

Speaking of Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat, I’ve again finished its single player campaign and remembered that its’ ending is similar to Resistance: Fall of Man–it’s as abrupt and unsatisfying.
Perhaps it should be made clear to developers that credits aren’t part of a game’s ending.

Oddities: Music video consists entirely of CoD4 gunshots

Remember those Halo 3 suicide videos? Do you recall how insanely elaborate they were? I think I may have just found the clip that surpasses those videos in terms of intricacy. Below is a music video made up entirely of Call of Duty 4 gunfire.

Who made the music video? Some fellow who calls himself Serpento. […]

Staunch PC shooter fan reluctantly gets better in using analog sticks

At first, I […]

Call of Duty 4 is a pleasant surprise on gaming consoles

Yeah, I know that the game is fantastic. If you look at every game Website or blog out there, you’ll see that majority of the ratings garnered by Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat is at the 90% neighborhood—and for good reason.
Despite the game’s excellence, I remain reluctant to play its console versions. Why? Because […]
