The Goggle Box – House Of Cards Splits The Deck

houseofcards1House Of Cards Season 3 has been and gone and opinions are divided at best. Was the third season of a binge watch TV series ever going to go down a treat? Probably not. Are we all fools to have plowed through all 13 episodes in no time at all? Probably, yes. But the burning question, was it any good? Yes; and here’s why.

Lads, seriously, full spoilers for House Of Cards follow.

Day 3/4

What, you expected me to chime in with a final opinion within a week of the game releasing? Please. Ok so my daily (ish) updates on Advanced Warfare were supposed to be leading up to a final verdict but then Christmas/life/poor online connectivity got in the way.

As seems to be in vogue these days, I have decided to split my opinion on Call Of Duty – Advanced Warfare over a few days, hopefully with a finished piece good to go by Friday when I have finally got a good spin at the online aspects of this latest entry in the billion dollar franchise. Unfortunately, launching the game yesterday took a little more out of my day than expected so I got to play a grand total of…one match. I’ll work with what I can I guess!

With the impending release of Call Of Duty – Advanced Warfare it seems appropriate to have a look back at the Call Of Duty (COD) legacy. It’s a storied one, a controversial one and I doubt I’ll make new friends here, but let’s see how we do.
