In a surprise unveiling, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be taking to the skies.
"In a surprise unveiling" lol
lol'd at the noob see trough wall scope.. resistance had it in 2006 and perfect dark as well
Red Faction II had it too.
Annnnd Perfect Dark had it in 2000 on the N64...
COD with timed DLC exclusive as their last game in the show. And still, it's just a multiplatform. They are showing it as if it was an exclusive game? Usher in the show (it's conference, not a concert)? Nike's application? Dance Central 3? Showing tons of multiplatform games as if they were exclusives? Timed DLC exclusive? Useless Kinect voice commands in multiplatform games? Useless CG videos of Gears of War/Forza (and other games) that gives you no clue what is the game like? Seriously Microsoft? You waste your money with timed exclusive DLC and not a new IP? What the hell? Oh well... I can't wait for Sony and Nintendo's conference, because I know I will have something much better.
wow great attempt at being BF3 with that jet scene /s
except it was jet which ran on Rails!
Did anyone see ONE human enemy in that footage? I guess you really are shooting at dumb AI now.
Yeah, it kinda looked like COD has officially jumped the shark here. "Explosions! Now RUN! Explosions! Now shoot three guys with a scope that lets you see through walls while they don't shoot back! Explosions! Now you're in a turret! Now a plaaaaane! On RAIIILS! EXPLOSIONS!" This was like the videogame equivalent of those Powerthirst ads from collegehumor. Did no one sit up in those planning meetings and go "Um. Is this still a first person shooter or...what exactly is this? Because people generally liked the first person shooters we made."
MS's conference was very...underwhelming. Literally no new non-Kinect or non-XBLA games announced. Not one. Not even a multiplat. Sigh.
FYI BO2 may feature planes but I sure as hell doubt you can actually fly them. From that gameplay it looked on rails and you just aim to shoot. MP probably won't have air combat that you can fly. We will have to see. @GuyMan Agreed on it being underwhelming. They showed 6 gameplay of games. 3 of which were exclusive and 3 which had like timed-exclusive content. Then it was all new "features" and Kinect. WTF was Usher doing at a games conference?!?!?!
Seriously, that's going to become a meme.
That was the weakest E3 for Microsoft yet.
Indeed.. Sony will no doubt crush 'em with their conference. >:) as for the article.. no sh*t.
What fanboy is disagreeing with this? Seriously people wake up and realize when you're being screwed..
Started strong with HALO4, went down hill from that point in. Hit rock bottom with the 'dance performance'.
At least 343 looks like they fully out classed Bungie. I've never really like Halo, but Halo 4 looks beautiful!
Sorry, but it looked just like any other COD game. Same old shit, different name. And this was MS's worst conference in years.
Well, it was better than 2010.
Black Ops 2 looks terrible. I didn't see that guy playing shoot one guy that wasn't sniping through a wall. Looks boring as hell
Graphics got worse?
Well it's futuristic now, so they probably couldn't recycle most of the textures they've used over the last decade.
The only thing that looked cool was the whole jet flying part.
but they had Usher sing and dance. isnt that worth something?? smh. sad if ur a 360 only gamer. maybe next year??
MS maybe doesn't know the demographics for xbox too well it seems. I don't think most are teenage girls lol.
I expected much more, looked like MS wasn't even trying..
Ain't spending my money on this game..
As we can see MS is not catering to gamers, they already have them. They're catering to the casual gamer, with the kinect. Sad thing is all they do is throw the core gamer a bone every year to keep them happy.
I'm just hoping it completly goes a MS exclusive game so I can't buy it
