Here’s Everything You Need to Know About ‘Call of Duty: WWII’


Call of Duty is going back to its roots. It was 2003 when the original Call of Duty was unleashed on the world with a fresh experience that put you on the front lines and in the trenches of some of the war’s most intense moments.

14 years later, Activision is trying to recapture that lightning in a bottle by taking the veteran series back to Europe in the 1940s with Call of Duty: WWII.

After so many games under the COD banner have taken us all over the world, through every imaginable modern era and even into the future, this return to where the series started is both long overdue and a testament to the fact that Call of Duty has their ear to the ground in terms of trying to give gamers what they want.

Ostensibly, the return to 1940s Europe is a way of introducing a new generation of gamers to an era that was thoroughly fleshed out in the prior decade of video games. COD: WWII is giving them all a chance to experience epic set-pieces like storming the beach at Normandy, the liberation of Paris and battles throughout Germany.

Activision also seems acutely aware that the long-term draw of a COD game is its multiplayer and they are taking the opportunity in COD: WWII to elevate that element of the game with deeper customization and more variety to the MP than we’ve previously seen out of any COD game.

Time will tell if COD: WWII’s multiplayer has the staying power of previous high points in the series like Modern Warfare or Black Ops 2 but, if you wanted to get get preemptively excited about the deathmatches to come in COD: WWII, we wouldn’t blame you at all.

COD: WWII will also carry with it a new stab at the Nazi Zombies co-op mode that began as an oddball fan-favorite but has quickly become a staple of the series. We actually weren’t expecting the zombies mode in this game so that comes as a pleasant surprise and we’re excited to see what new innovations and changes COD: WWII injects into that part of the game.

Activision officially dated Call of Duty: WWII’s release as November 3rd, 2017 so you can start your countdowns now. In the meantime, check out the reveal trailer and try to keep your nazi-battling bloodlust in check until the game shows up this fall.

Here’s Everything You Need To Know About ‘Stealthing’, An Extremely Dangerous New Sex Trend

Listen up, folks. There’s a dangerous new sex trend going around, and we need to address it, because it’s always good to stay woke about these things.

Apparently, there’s something called “stealthing” happening in bedrooms across the good ol’ U.S. of A., and it’s not cool at all.

Documented in a report by the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law, “stealthing” is when a dude secretly removes his condom during sex without the consent of the lady he is having sex with.

According to the lead author of the report, Alexandra Brodsky, “stealthing” is a form of sexual assault, and that’s not good. Sexual assault is a serious crime, my friends.

Apparently, there are online communities where men encourage one another to “stealth” and take off their condoms during sex, because they think it’s a man’s right to “spread one’s seed.”

“One of my goals with the article, and in proposing a new statute, is to provide a vocabulary and create ways for people to talk about what is a really common experience that just is too often dismissed as just ‘bad sex’ instead of ‘violence,’” Brodsky told the Huffington Post.

To elaborate a little, “stealthing” is bad for many reasons. First off, it can lead to unwanted pregnancy and/or STIs, which are both bad. Additionally, it can cause “emotional, physical, and financial harm” at the same degree as other, more aggressive acts of sexual assault, such as rape. After all, taking your condom off during sex without asking the person you’re sleeping with is a defilement.

Brodsky says that while existing laws don’t cover “stealthing,” a new law would be a good way to address this issue. “At its best, such a law would clearly respond to and affirm the harm victims report by making clear that ‘stealthing’ doesn’t just ‘feel violent’ — it is.”

Just so you know how serious “stealthing” is, a Swiss court convicted a man of rape after he took his condom off during sex without telling his partner. So yeah, if you feel inclined to take the condom off during sex, you should talk to your partner about it first.
