With 14 days to go until Call of Duty: Black Ops (at the time of publication), CoD Black Ops News have highlighted 14 new and improved features that'll make Black Ops the best CoD game yet.
...is the crossbow explosive tips. I've had this nightmare, where the crossbow was the new grenade launcher. If the explosive tip goes straight like a bullet, then it's fine. But if the explosive tip shoots and lands in a curve like the throwing knife from mw2...we're fucked...
I haven't watched a single video of Black Ops, nor have I read anything about the game, besides that one thing about their retarded RC car taking 45 batteries. Edit: or maybe it was 65 batteries? I can't remember. A bagillion?
Wow, your name suits you.
it may seem like a simple electrical toy car, but the military possess technology similar to it and are highly explosive and deadly. they are anything but "retarded."
Yeah, and they go VRRRRRMMMMMMMMM!!!!
yea raising the bar by 2 pixel.
I think the crossbow is only usable in sticks and stones game mode.
First of all-- Black Ops isn't raising any bar that hasn't really already been set. However, it doesn't have to. The game is looking great, and out of everything I played this year it looks to be the best Multiplayer game. My issue is the revealed pro perks. Ghost and Ninja seem to dominant, and I hate that unlimited sprint+Lightweight is back. Aside from that everything looks great. Also, F--- Treyarch for screwing the PS3 fans.
Actually, they reduced the marathon perk to "extended sprint" rather than "unlimited".
That Ninja's pro perk is to make footsteps louder. Like sitrep pro. So basically, they cancel each other out, so there is no point on using ninja. If you're using ninja, and somebody else is using ninja pro, you made your footsteps quieter, but the other guy made it louder, making the noise back to the original state.
@alph-male22 i hope this makes your day enjoy cuz i know i did. http://www.bingegamer.net/w...
Don't worry you guys have Killzone 3 and you don't have to cry about waiting for the dreadful $15 dlc. =\ sarcasm
What did they do?
Lol,thanks scar. Honestly, COD4 is still one of the best games, and their perks made more sense. No infinite run, dead silence came at the cost of marathon, etc. @GearMonkey The latest video says "unlimited", but I keep also hearing "extended" I'd like some clearance from Treyarch.
the main thing that i like treyarch is doing with black ops is that they are making everything balanced and getting rid of a lot of overpowered perks/weapons/killstreaks/aspe cts that hindered the MW2 experience. IW thought that just by adding a bunch of new perks and killstreaks would make MW2 as a big of a hit as MW, but it proved worse and more a cluster fuck multiplayer game than anything else. the campaign doesn't even have a consistent premise and goes from one (almost irrelevant) crazy hollywood-movie action set piece to another just for the sake of randomized action and not following a plot. treyarch seems to be focusing on things that were overpowered or unbalanced from MW2 and fixing them. treyarch did a great job balancing WAW such as not allowing the grenades to fly the distance of a superbowl dome and offering bigger and more detailed maps. i got more trust in treyarch than IW when it comes to offering a better campaign and multiplayer even when IW lays the initial foundation for the series.
Treyarch balanced WaW? WTH is wrong with you? 70% of WaW used the MP40 simply because it was ridiculously cheap. It was complained about and brought up for months, yet to this day, Treyarch did nothing. They are horrible at that type of thing. I'm glad to see they are balancing perks in BO, and I hope that they don't make a second coming of the MP40 in BO.
thats also 14 extra reasons why i wont be buying the game
"•Killstreak Kills - Kills from Killstreak Rewards no longer count towards your next-higher killstreak reward. This is definitely raising the bar over previous Call of Duty titles where users often had only to reach a lower killstreak and hide somewhere while that Killstreak Reward earned them their next-higher one. This will encourage some more interactivity and promote aggressive players." excellent improvement. couldn't stand the fuckers who got a chopper from a measely care package and let it do al the work for them. EDIT "COD Points - ....Never before have players had the ability to spend ‘money’ on anything that they wish. We have always been given a certain weapon, at a certain level, whether we liked that weapon or not." wow, this fool hasn't played a lot of FPSs. MAG, BC1, and a bunch of other FPSs have this feature.
I'm definately buying it, Nothing is going to stop me.. Unless of course, I get run over a few days before release
"I'm not gay so I can't." ever heard of the word "experimentation"? supposedly a lot of people do it for their first time in college.
increasing the price by 20 Percent
None of those things are new and some aren't even proven. IS the game balanced? Flamethrowers attached to assault rifles seems to prove otherwise. How is it raising the bar if it hasn't done anything to raise the bar? This is just another annual Call of Duty game, nothing more. The same thing was done with MW2 as we are seeing now. The game keeps having more and more to it, then when it comes out it will be another mediocre mess. I feel bad for anyone falling for it again. Edit: Stat keeping, community feedback and theater mode, way to play catch up. Sniping, killstreaks, combating cheaters/hackers and balance, nice job finally fixing problems that were in three or more games in the series. That is if you actually fixed it and aren't talking out your ass again.
Your edit is hilarious, Clearly, in your first post you didn't even bother to read the article. Just wanted to say the same tired shit everyone else does. Then its an about face when you read the article.. Tell you what, why don't you try reading before you click the "add comment" button, k?
Treyarch is taking names. They don't wanna be "B" team anymore. With infinity ward decimated, they're going for the throat.
so they want to be the "A" Team now :P lol
Same Engine, Same Recycled Gameplay with a few new maps, perks and modes. I highly doubt I'll be getting this game, I lost respect in the COD Franchise after COD4.
You clearly haven't seen any of the new info. There is going to be an updated engine and the gameplay is slightly revamped. They also added some new perks, while also got rid of some (for instance: stopping power, danger close, and commando have been removed). Also the multiplayer component is very much balanced now. Anyway, the game hasn't come out yet, so you might be wrong.
The exact same thing I said, but less Perks and more balanced. Updated Engine is still the same engine, just updated, and I don't see a huge improvement. Every COD game has been the same since 4, the game looks and feels the same and is getting frustratingly boring. Once Activision start rolling out 2 COD Titles a year (Sledgehammer, Treyarch, Infinity Ward) I wonder if people will still be oblivious to the fact they are still paying for the same game...
But wait, they added new gimmicks that will end up pissing you off after their novelty factor runs out. Don't forget they added some "balance" this time in the form of changing around all the cheap shit so it will be a whole three days before how imbalanced the game actually is arises as players figure new cheap things out. Edit: Don't think I hate Call of Duty. I actually love it. All the assholes that ruined all the other multiplayer games I play flocked to CoD and cleaned up most of their online communities.
the game really doesn't evolve a whole lot, but its improving on every aspect that made MW2 a failure (the game is a failure in my opinion) while still offering some new features. i think blackops will be a lot more enjoyable and probably be as good as MW1 when it came out. sometimes its the small things that count you know?
hopfully this game is gonna b the game MW2 should av been
So basically your buying a modified MW2, for the same price? bloody kids with mummy's money
CoD Hater spotted.
@enkeixpress COD fanboy spotted see two can play that game.
you don't have to be a fanboy to spot a hater...
ya your MOMS money, after the night I spent with her shes gonna wish you were never born. - debt for life
All aboard the hype-train! Seriously that title is probably not gonna be the worst of the COD "articles" that are going to hit this site with force.
I am only buying it for the zombie pack. Anyone on the same boat? To be honest I don't really care that much about the single player, but it's a bonus.
I loved COD4 & [email protected] and couldn't wait for MW2 but dam that game was fucked from the start and is still fucked today. I think black ops is gonna be a massive improvment over MW2 even though there are bound to be online issues with it at first when it's made availible to the masses(11 year olds)but i'm sure treyarch will have learned from from the mess that is known as MW2.
The only bar its raising is the sale stat bar.
All i see are things that 'should be there anyway', things that 'have been done before', Plus exploting the fanbase. People like nazi zombies huh? Best stick that in a more expensive package right? What next? Call of Duty campaign and Call of Duty Multiplayer sold separatly? Not so farfetched right if they can pull this stunt.
It just recycles it.
i must be the only one who thought juggernaught and stopping power were fair tradeoffs. Then again I don't cry like a bitch when someone doesn't die in the exact calculated amount of bullets that it "should" take. Pussies.
the very first reason was actually not raising any bar, but repeating what they had done before. should i even continue with the article... err, no
they fucked the people who wanted to buy this for their ps3,hopefully 720p at 60fps is for both the consoles.
I swear, reading COD hate is almost as entertaining as playing the games themselves!
can someone tell me if the 4th one "Killstreak Kill" is true and confirmed? i dont want to be ruining my friends' hearts with this news until then
