It’s Time for My Favorite “Call of Duty” Memes!

For the past few weeks, I have enjoyed the crap out of the newest entry in the popular Call of Duty video game series, Call of Duty: Black Ops II.  This is the first time I ever purchased a Call of Duty game on its initial date of release and played consistently online (PSN: KINGof210), as I typically buy some of the games used 1-2 years after its launch and concentrate on the single-player campaign, as I do not buy the newest version of CoD year-after-year (I only do that with the WWE games; I R Hyp-Oh-Crit, sorta).  Technically, this is the ninth game in the Call of Duty series, leaving the video game open to the wonderful and amazing world of internet memes.  Here are some of my favorites related to the series!   Continue reading “It’s Time for My Favorite “Call of Duty” Memes!”

Chances are now that many of you fellow gamers are enjoying playing your brand new Wii U system that just came out this past Sunday (if you’re curious about the system, CLICK HERE).  One game in particular for the system, Ubisoft’s ZombiU, is actually a sequel to a game released 26 years, in fact, many people don’t even realize that it’s even a sequel at all.  At first is may seem that the oddly-spelled title was a reference to Nintendo’s console — as with their history of adding “Super” in many Super Nintendo games, “64” at the end of Nintendo 64 titles, “DS” or “3DS” in some form on Nintendo DS games, and “Wii” to many Wii titles — but it’s actually a reference to its predecessor, entitled Zombi.
