The Point - House of CODs
A new Call of Duty has been announced, so Danny and Rob put on their best suits to investigate the facts. Also Danny eats ribs.

Man a lot of ROFLCOPTERS were flying around my room just now. AWESOME SHOW / EPISODE. The acting was awesome and I can't tell you how many times I LOLed.
GS LISTEN UP. IF YOU CANCEL THIS SHOW OR LOSE THE GUYS IN THIS SHOW, I WILL KILL YOU*.
*Note: This is not literal. Do not send SWAT.
I can't believe Danny slipped in that Kane and Lynch reference. I totally lost it after that and had to come back and rewind to find my place.
@at129907 I thought it was pretty good for an Irish guy. I only caught his natural accent slip out about twice. The southern accent wasn't enough to fool anyone, but definitely good enough for a laugh.
@bourne714 Careful,he might hear you.
Best episode ever! I almost didn't watch it because it was about COD, that would of been a mistake. This is the best series on Gamespot without a doubt.
Never really been into military shooters myself, but this was a pretty good video, thanks for the creation guys, also a COD ad before this video? Ironic...
Never played BF before 4 so I don't know what people are fussing about with the game. I think its just great. :o
@klonoa53 literally everything.
@klonoa53 The coding is a little off, and there were huge server issues at the beginning for many people, and slightly off for some still. People seem to be hopping on the bandwagon more than anything though.
gee, another xbox 180, big surprise there. but no surprise considering the april sales for that turd of a new console was complete shit. just another point that microsoft cares more about sales than anything else. the xbone is still a crappy entertainment console and nowhere near a gaming console like most people want.
I hope CoD end. Its been long enough.
Maybe in a few years they could bring it back and people will be happy to play it again.
Activision better step up their game and actually put all that money they throw at the games to good use. Danny that was brilliant, I enjoyed it thoroughly .
Gamespot videos on gamespot page take too long to load.
I give trying to see it here lets go on youtube
It's one thing to just talk about games, but being able to wrap them into a narrative that's entertaining AND informative just shows how much thought and care is put into these pieces. It's clear you guys are having a lot of fun making these, and that's awesome. Thanks for offering something refreshingly different.
@acleveralias Thanks so much for the kind words. We're still learning a lot with every episode so I'm hoping they'll continue to get better.
I love to play mw2 and now bo2 all the rest is shit exept mw1, i love that 2 cods and i want to purchase something new to make scrims with my friends but ghost is shit and run like crysis 3 on ultra in pc with graphics of mario, there is no ping and there is infinite lagg and hackers ghost was the worst of the series, the only thing to make something new is to made cod use a new engine, there are people that like it there are other that no but i think if the game is really good u should not be hatter, so please made something like mw2 or bo2 that 2 was so fun
I liked the opening bit, Danny pretty good impersonation! The Doug Stamper costume just made me die though! :D
Well done, as usual! But can we please stop hearing news about COD? It's sort of like that celebrity couple that, no matter how hard you try to avoid them/it, you're stuck hearing about it no matter where you go.
@Sjalasvalten - to be fair, it's still massively successful and massively popular. it's as famous as it is infamous, so covering call of duty will both attract the millions and millions who love the series, and the people who are tired of hearing about it, hoping that it is bad news or slamming, and of course half of the people who are on the fence about the series.
so it's a safe bet for any section of gaming media to generate something that will reach the most people.
why is that a bad thing?
Decent video, Danny. Although it's not one of your better ones it's still my favorite show on GS! Keep them up!
Great video, great impression of Spacey's drawl, which is over the top. Season one of HOC was bordering on silly/crazy, but still fun to watch. I think they added a bit of realism in season two.
Kevin Spacey is very talented and funny - see youtube for his impressions.
COD is what it is, it makes money. The games are not the games you truly love but they're fun. Plus I own Activision/Blizz stock so buy it please!
GREAT EPSIODE!!!! had me from the beginning.
as for COD well, I've said it several times. my interest is long gone and its sad how it keeps being pumped out annually with little story value
As cool as this was, I'm not sure what the message of this video was. Just seemed like a bunch of people in suits talking about stuff we already know and only really saying anything of its own at the very end... vaguely.
Is that how House of Cards works?
@KBABZ You need to watch the show to appreciate it.
