Excited for Call of Duty: Black Ops to release? Get pumped with 5 gameplay videos and all the info so far
Despite what I said before, it looks like sooo much fun. That being said, if it will be as disappointing as MW2 was, I will never trust another CoD again... But since MW2 was probably the only CoD game I didnt like, I am willing to completely forget that it was ever made... P.S. On the 4th video, whats up with the akimbo? I thought they were supposed to get rid of that... Thats kinda gay...
This song has gotten me more pumped than any of the trailers have.
As fun as the game looks, I won't buy it because of Bobby Kotick.
If you want to play it, then buy it used.
I don't get that.
I agree with that! This will either make or break the COD series for me! It's looking too damn good though.
"That being said, if it will be as disappointing as MW2 was, I will never trust another CoD again" i know infitityward shitted on us gamers with MW2 online by not beta testing it and it turn out to be a glitch fest,but treyarch is learning from that and acually been beta testing for 3 months now so this should be good
I have been getting less ans less "pumped" as I see more of the game. I have decided to give my money to the more deserving Cryteck with Crysis 2. Nothing on Treyarch though.
I am still unsure about the game. The fact that the Zombie mode is making a return makes me want the game... but the fact it already looks pretty obvious that they plan on milking the Zombie mode for as much money as they can make on the DLC makes me think twice. I think it will be a case of; if there is a supermarket pricewar with places like Asda and Tesco doing it for £29 then I will most likely pick up a copy day one, but if not then I will probably pass on it.
i'll buy this game , it's alot better then Mw2 , it have zombies - good campaign - good gameplay for the online :) ... new modes in the online ...... assassin creed brotherhood is in the same month , :D .. i wish if gt5 release in november too :( ...
Why couldn't it be released as an expansion? Looks shockingly similar to MW, WAW and MW2.
Because we, as gamers, are happy, in general, to buy it this way. I also feel that it's a bit rich calling WaW, MW2 and now BO fully fledged retail games in the truest sense when they all stick so rigidly to what's an, admittedly, great formula coined for COD4. Thing is COD isn't alone in this regard cos we buy sports games like Fifa, PES and Madden every year even when there'#s sod all difference in the gameplay from one iteration to0 the next! Mainly, I think devs and gamers would, or could, be better off if EA, for E.G , just did a full Fifa game every other year which would give them enough chance to really upgrade and make the new game worthwhile. In the off year they could release a disc/DLC with the new strips, comp lists and squad updates etc-all the statistic and yearly changes we cannot avoid-for a nominal fee and as they aren't doing the same work in a rush that they would for the yearly game wouldn't it still endn up as profitablke if priced right? Everyone would be a winner, no? But, as I say, we buy it as it is so they're happy doing as little as they can for as much cash as possible so looking into better value for us and themselves is unlikely even if it MIGHT be possible to do it to everyone's advantage AND earn some mutual respect often missing in the industry/community relationships within gaming. To me the only real additions are new perk tweaks,new killstreaks, another dodgy looking campaign with too much bang without thought, new maps and skins for the MP and the return of the Zombie/horde mode rip off from WaW which wasn't big or clever or original the first time they didn't bother using their imaginations on it. Not nearly enough to merit everyone shelling out new game prices-not in my eyes. If we're all honest can we really say the last few PES's or Madden's we bought were fair and good value in terms of being improved on the last years model? I can't and when I look at COD4 it's STILL the better of the recent COD games. Best SP(by a mile)and the originator of the perk and class system in the MP that works so well and in the first MW was just better balanced than it ever has been since. The changes since have been purely cosmetic and just watered down the magic of that first entry this gen imho-seriously, if everyone who bought any of the COD games from COD4 onwards was asked to choose just one to keep playing for good most would choose, for my money, COD4. I would and I'd rather play it now than the others really and they'd all have been amazing premium DLC content but full retail games should strive for more than just tweaks and a new setting for me. But we keep buying and conning ourselves. I just don't see the value in buying BO when it comes out if it isn't a decent change on the three previous COD's as if it isn't why should we change top it? At full price? When you think about it it's a bit mad I think. Not that it's alone in this kind of rip off in gaming. It really does just look like MW2 and there's no getting away from it-they release the same basic game every year-it5's a good game but EVERY YEAR? Is it so good you want to buy it over and over again? That's why I've opted out after WaW. I've played MW2 and will play some BO, no doubt, but only as rentals or at mates cos I'd just as happily play COD4 or WaW for my COD fix and as COD4 is still the best of the bunch why wouldn't I?
Anyone know when the reviews are due? Not overly interested in them, but look forward to the comment section :)
Lets see last time i was pumped for COD was when MW released watching the trailers of that gave me chills. But watching the videos from the first COD on PC Soviet soliders running up the hill just being gunned down helplessly. Now that is a true COD showing real events and playing through them. That one level had me in a shocked. Black ops looks alright.
I kinda wish the game wasn't about Black Ops operatives. I think it would have been better if they went the way of the old CoDs and just made you a regular soildier.
O yes i agree with you that is how it was in the good old COD games. You also played in real wars, experienced things that actually happen, horrific things.
i think they will give this game less then 9 because Mw2 was sucks , websites like ign always judge the game of what they like not what things in it .... they shouldn't make reviews !!!
I get mine next week for free up yours kotick.
@static-x i work at a warehouse where we unload gameboxes to be shipped out.
not too pumped about the game, looks like more of the same kind of gameplay as MW2. the only thing thats going to get on my nerve besides that stupid RC car is the fact that im putting money in Bobby Kotick's pocket. -_-
GOSH i as excited as a teenager when he sees his first pair of tits for this game
I'm buying this game because they added 3D!!!! Can't wait!!!! ^_^
I love how everyone rips on how terrible MW2 is, but i know most people who hate it played the shit out of it at first then got sick of it. Then they blamed Infinity Ward for making a shitty game. Everyone cant always get on the leaderboards, and there has to be some negative KDRs for there to be positive ones. The game was balanced, but the community wasn't.
i dont hate MW2 just its flaws and the people who exploit those flaws.
