A critique and retrospective of all eleven Call of Duty games released for the PC between 2003 and 2014 by Noah Caldwell-Gervais. (It's 2 hours long but I found it fascinating even as someone who has only played a couple of them and doesn't care much for the series in general).

I had no idea that this was a thing that was happening, but apparently it is, and now I know. (The growth of mercenaries and for-profit private military contractors isn't news to me; game companies producing journalvertising about it is). Activision has apparently produced a 'documentary' short film called "Superpower for Hire" in association with Vice and the advertising agency 72andSunny in order to promote their latest warpornmanshoot Call of Duty opus. Robert Rath at Escapist has a fair bit to say not only on the fact that it exists, but how fast and loose it plays with the product-pumping information it presents as factual.
