Spring is here, along with plans for road trips and getaways on those few precious three and four-day weekends that come with federal holidays. As everyone else funnels off base or packs before an early morning departure, you can’t help but think: Bye, suckers.
If you’re an adult and make solid choices, then your game of choice is coming from the Call Of Duty franchise. Ever since the original Call of Duty blew my mind all the way back to World War 2 nearly 15 years ago, the series only gets better with each passing installment.
Just before Veterans Day, Activision released Call of Duty: WWII, the latest title in a flagship military first-person-shooter series that’s birthed dozens of games since 2003. This installment was widely hyped — and anticipated — as a return to the franchise's roots. Needless to say, we here at Task & Purpose were eager to review it.
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to battle alongside the Greatest Generation against Adolf Hitler and the rising tide of Nazi tyranny? Well, you can’t actually do that, Call of Duty: WWII, the franchise's 14th installment, lets you virtually storm Normandy, drop into France with the 101st Airborne, and kill Nazi’s a la Inglorious Basterds ...minus Brad Pitt’s shitty accent.
