The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta has been chock full of gamers eager to see what Treyarch is bringing to the table this year, and one PC gamer has dug through the in-game beta menus to confirm an expected feature: Black Ops 4 will once again offer both emblems and weapon paint jobs to users, allowing fans hefty customization options for their loadouts. The existence of the menu confirms that both player emblems and custom weapon paint jobs will be returning in Black Ops 4, with the latter feature having been introduced in Black Ops 3 back in 2015. Dubbed the Paint Shop, users could go in to their loadout’s weaponry and put in colors, patterns, icons, tools, and even lettering.Of course, allowing everyone to have this level of customization occasionally led to some bad eggs creating unsavory content, so the option to report inappropriate emblem and camo usage is sure to make a return as well. As the above menu indicates, players will have the option to disable user … [Read more...] about Black Ops 4 Will Offer Paint Jobs and Emblem Editor
When I took over GameRevolution last year, the site was in a period of transition. With just three staff members (myself included), we worked our backsides off to get to a point where we could begin reinvesting, transforming GameRevolution into something bigger and better than it ever had been. Fast-forward to today and I’m pleased to say that GR now has its largest workforce ever, with a bunch of new faces joining the site this month, giving us a 20-plus strong team of editors, writers, and more, contributing to GR’s Big-Ass August.

Update: YouTube confirmed to Polygon today that it removed Logan Paul from its top-tier Google Preferred ad program, adding that all of his YouTube Red projects are on hold. YouTube released a statement yesterday condemning Logan Paul’s controversial video, acknowledging the vlog was in violation of community guidelines and claiming the company did everything it could to rectify the situation. The statement was released over a series of tweets, but this is the most important part: We expect more of the creators who build their community on @YouTube, as we’re sure you do too. The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences. Despite the company saying it “acted accordingly,” YouTube clearly didn’t. Between when Paul’s original video was published on Dec. 31, and the time it was taken down on Jan. 2, there were a series of events that occurred that had little to do with YouTube. An … [Read more...] about YouTube’s open letter regarding Logan Paul is full of excuses, not ownership
