Yes, another new background image, making this the fourth one used on this site, and the third bearing the name "Project McCall". I'm aware that I made the last background image only seven months ago, and it was a lot of work I might add. Unfortunately, Wikia chose now, after we'd gotten used to it, to undo their mind-bogglingly stupid move of shrinking Wikia sites. What I mean by that, is that there is a lot less space for background images and more for page content, which really is a good thing except for the fact it ruined the background image we had. Even the one before that wouldn't look right at this point.
So began my long hassle with Wikia, as I tried to figure out the new parameters for background images. Over the course of this frus…Read more >
“I loved you and you lied to me, both of you! You betrayed me!” –Ray McCall, expressing my feelings on Call of Juarez: The Cartel to Techland and Ubisoft.
Even if you were one of those who liked that game, you have to admit it was a huge misstep to take an American Old West series into modern day. It’d be like making an all-modern Assassin’s Creed. Thankfully, in Call of Juarez: Gunslinger we’re back to basics. Gunslinger is an excellent game, but it's not at the level of Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, or the original Call of Juarez.
The music is amazing of course, Pawel Blasczak is a great composer. Some of the music are revised versions of music from the previous games, which is great because they had excellent music as well. The scenery i…Read more >
Notice something different on Project McCall, the Call of Juarez Wiki today? Yes, it's a new background. The third background this Wiki has had, in fact. The first "Project McCall" background (With Ray on the left and Billy on the right) was made as a replacement for (my apologies to Ausir for this but it's the truth) that absolutely terrible original background. With inexperience, the background I created always had some issues, the primary one being the sharpening effect I used to try and hide a few unavoidable glitches in my copy-pasting, and the second being the downgraded quality due to my having to compress it, as it was too large.
Thankfully I've had much more experience with photo-editing and technique since then. I'm happy to announc…Read more >
Thanks to Tassanee over at CoJFans, whom personally knows Haris Orkin (one of the two writers of Call of Juarez, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, "That game", and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger), we managed to get a second interview with him. You may recall our list of Confirmed Facts, that was actually our first interview with him. Because of the somewhat sensitive nature of our trying to get in touch with him (Ubisoft's BS with that Family Tree for... that game), and the way we were all agreeing how stupid Ubisoft was, I decided for the time being it was best to have him remain anonymous. It probably wouldn't have mattered, but it seemed like the logical course of action at the time. Here is the interview:
Foreborn: Hey Mr. Orkin, Foreborn her…

There are several new gameplay videos of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger up. I must say this is looking better and better... And I was surprised and very pleased to hear a song from Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, and at least one other from Call of Juarez playing in Gunslinger. I ripped the music from both CoJ and BiB and have their full soundtracks in my music library (only missing a few tracksgenerally because they were too short, or duplicates of others), so I listen to the music often. Btw if anyone wants the soundtracks, I would be happy to share them, all you have to do is ask. But enough of that, let's watch some videos.
UPDATE: Sources claim the release date has been announced as May 22nd, it will be priced at $14.99.
Perhaps the most i…Read more >
