Kill that blunt
The dumb just keeps on coming, as this week Activision announced you can buy the "Blunt Force" character pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts. This gives you armor and weapon skins featuring the cannabis plant, commonly known as marijuana or "weed."
Your poor wallet
Did your wallet not suffer enough from the Steam Summer Sale? Then it's your lucky day-the Humble Store is serving up its own set of deals every day, with 10% of your purchase automatically going to charity. See, you're not buying those video games because you're selfish-it's for charity!
The sale runs through Wednesday, July 16.
Hear that? It's me gorging on BBQ and shooting fireworks into the sky instead of paying attention to video games.
Still, we have a few articles you might've missed this week. Escape Dead Island is like Groundhog Day with zombies, Reading Rainbow is coming to consoles, Microsoft acquired software used to debug Unity games, and the vastly improved second-gen Oculus Rift started shipping this week.
We've also got a review of Sniper Elite 3 , a review of the Digital Storm Krypton gaming laptop, and if you're looking for something to do with your three-day weekend, well, why not check out our list of deep and meaty PC games?
Now if you'll excuse me, I have some brats to eat.
Thanks to Kelli Crowe for the primary image. Yes, I know Pac-Man was a Namco title.
