Is ‘Call of Duty’ This Generation’s ‘Star Wars’?

So I got up the other morning and started enjoying my first cup of coffee of the day while I check the internets and I came across one of the most ridiculous statements I have ever heard in my life.

It came from a quote from Eric Hirshberg, the new CEO of Activision, who is the publisher the Call of Duty games.

Are you ready for it?

You have to be sure, because it made me really mad.

“The Call of Duty franchise is a force of nature. I think it is the closest thing this generation has to a Star Wars,” he said. “I think it’s unique and bigger than any musical act or any movie franchise in that capacity.”

Modern Warfare

**UPDATED BELOW**

Some strange and interesting breaking news being reported by G4 tonight. Apparently right this moment as you read this, Infinity Ward has been taken over by a bunch of “bouncer-type” security sorts who refused to disclose who they were or why they were there.

None of the employees of Infinity Ward seem to have any clue why this is happening or who’s behind it, but everyone there is naturally concerned and worried about what is actually going on. To make matters even worse for the employees, apparently studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West had a meeting with Activision earlier this morning, but have not been seen or heard from since then.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Xbox 360, PS3, or PC for only $39.99 each (that’s 33% off the list price of $59.99).

This sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sold almost 5 million copies in its first day of release back in November, so chances are, most of you who wanted it already own it, but if you were holding out for a sale — the day is here! But, this sale is only for today while supplies last, so grab it while you can before it sells out.

From what I’ve been told, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 combines a thrilling single player story with some very fine cooperative segments to make one of the best multiplayer games ever. This sequel takes place five years after the original Modern Warfare (all other Call of Duty games take place in a World War II setting), and sees you filling the shoes of multiple different characters as they fight in battles all over the world.

Holiday Geek Gift Guild: Game EditionOne of the most exciting things to receive as a gift on Christmas is video games. For me personally, nothing beats the morning I was given the Sega Genesis system I never thought I would possibly get, and playing Sonic’s elusive blue hide right into the ground. And even though that childlike joy will never be experienced again for me, and video game systems are a whole lot different and more expensive these days, it’s still exciting to open up a new video game you haven’t played yet.

To try and help some of you create this joy for your video game playing loved ones, we wanted to create a list of 2009’s best and most-desired game titles. These are the games that most people are going to want if they don’t have them yet, and these are the games that have made the most impact. Obviously you’ll want to make sure they don’t have specific titles in mind, but for the most part, this is where to start reading up on and shopping for video game gift ideas.

Click on over to the other side to check out our very own Holiday Gift Guide: Video Game Edition ’09 for selections to play on Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 game consoles, as well as on your PC.

And don’t procrastinate! No one enjoys last second shopping or the hell that is your local mall a few days before Christmas!

No Shock Here: ‘Call Of Duty’ Movie Possibly On The Way

Captain "Soap" Mactavish

Kevin McKidd is one of those actor who is incredible in all that he does, but isn’t really known among those who haven’t seen his works. The Scottish actor is best known as the main character of HBO’s Rome, Lucius Vorenus, but he’s been making a decent mark on more mainstream television series like Grey’s Anatomy and the canceled Journeyman. Next year, he will play Poseidon in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, but right now, he’s appearing in a less-visual role: Captain “Soap” MacTavish in the video game mega-hit Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Recently, McKidd spoke to the NY Post about his current prospective projects, and Call of Duty came up. He confessed that he had no idea that the game would be so popular, and that now they’re apparently toying with the idea of a movie based on the title. This comes as no surprise to anyone considering how popular the games are, and considering the genre, it could absolutely work well in movie form.
