Why we Didn't buy CoD: Advanced Warfare: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 173

For a little something different this week, we discuss why none of us decided to buy this year's Call of Duty, subtitled Advanced Warfare.  This is particularly shocking for Eric and Will, who despite swearing off the franchise, still seem to get the "Duty" itch and make the purchase every year.  Dan and Corey don't normally buy the Call of Duty games and explain why, and Will and Eric list their reason for resisting the foul CoD temptress, despite the generally positive reviews and a more interesting futuristic setting.  Later on we briefly touch on Assassin's Creed: Unity and the Master Chief Collection during "What We Played."
