An analysis of the new Call of duty: Black ops Multiplayer Trailer.
think Black Ops will surprise a lot of people in a good way. Treyarch is listening to the community's suggestions and are dedicated to proving themselves as competent protectors of the COD franchise. I'm looking forward to the full reveal on September 1st :). It's cool that they took notes from that Spetsnaz commando from "The Ultimate Warrior" lol. I remember the show demonstrating the 'ballistic knife'.
looks promising, but to judge whether or not the game is any good i will have to wait until it launches in november. i wont say what i liked or didnt like because chances are, that alot will have changed come release day. But i does just look like another CoD to me. and i lol'd at the mid air dive, would be hilarious watching people do that over balconies.
Looks a lot more interesting than MW2 to me.
that knife looks a bit too commando for my tastes...
thats what infinity ward did with modern warfare 2 hey listened to the community they had that page and developers were posting on it regularly and we got modern warfare 2
i agree, it seems very well balanced while still throwing in a few fun things.. which is where infinity dropped it.. they threw in a few gimmicky things and ended up making it a game for the 'less skilled'.. treyarch have the chance to re-do cod4 all over again, as in when that came out it was like 'holy crap..this is good!' lol
also notice the spike camera covers the mini map on the left side to balance the game play.So you cant see the mini map if you have the cam up.
I think it's safe to say that most of the 'true' gamers have had enough with the call of doodies. I really, truly hope that this game fails miserably (which it won't unfortunately) To me, buying this game equates to pulling down my pants and bending over, and that's something I refuse to do.
so because i enjoy arcade shooters im not a true gamer? seems like a silly statement to me. im not gonna say that its the best game ever, but i still like to start a match and get some quick kills here and there. dont get me wrong, mw2 pisses me off with all the kids running around laggin the game and sending me a message every 10 seconds to join a damn prestige lobby, but i still have fun playing with friends. now i certainly will play other games like the new fallout and the new halo and lbp2 and gears 3 and killzone 3, but im def gonna get this too. now if you dont think im a true gamer, then so be it.
Playing a CoD game does not make you less of a gamer, HOWEVER; if all you play is CoD and close yourself off to other fantastic gaming experiences, then yes, you are not a true gamer. Games are like food, they all have different tastes, and sometimes you are hungry for something different. Games like CoD are junk food. We know they aren't quite the best for us, yet we still hunger for them every now and then, and who wants to only eat gourmet cuisine(Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, Bioshock, Fallout 3, MGS4, LBP)? CoD is pretty much what you call a "fix". Sometimes I'm in the mood to get ridiculous amounts of kills that take no skill at all to achieve. That's what CoD is all about, making you feel better than you actually are. It's like being an ugly(unskilled in this metaphor) person, but having someone telling you that you are beautiful. It's a skill simulator, and sometimes, it's nice to have that feeling. But if you prevent yourself from experiencing truly great experiences, and just play CoD non-stop, then you can not consider yourself a "true" gamer in any sense.
well said, i agree with you on that.
If something is fun, and its a video game.....and you play it, that makes you a gamer. If I have fun with Black Ops, it makes me a gamer. Dose it make me a whining gamer....nope, that's a person who keeps complaining about a truly good series that while it dose not always innovate, at least takes a step forward in terms of awesome new things to do........>.>
Hardcore COD players aren't gamers to me. They are zombies. All they play is COD. Just about everyone on my friends list play COD every day. If not COD it's another FPS. It's like a virus that will never go away. Come Nov. I'm getting GT5. Too bad I'll be seeing more people on my friends list playing Black Ops.
I'll be buying alot of games coming out this year bro :) Black Ops GT5 Dead Rising 2 NFS:HP and more :)
for me this year Halo Reach GT5 Fable 3 Fallout NV Black Ops
i herd NFS:hp dosnt comeout this year
I play COD a lot but I also take a break for a few days at a time to play Darksiders and Borderlands. I like juggling 3 games at a time, haha.
Like down to the recycled animations and gameplay :(
Ha you are a blind fanboy? You do realize Treyarch is using the motion capturing system that was used for Avatar? So this game will be very good by the motion capturing video I saw on an interview of a studio tour at Treyarch :)
Did you see the guy Jump? Good motion capture my ass
What was wrong with the jump motion capture sequence? That was a mo-capped Spetsnaz soldier actually doing the jump.
Honestly, its exactly the same as the last cods, few new features but the game play is nearly EXACTLY the same. Graphics also need a lift.
If I can discern the person I'm shooting at from the crack of a cow's ass, with at least reasonable clarity the graphics are fine. Cod has NEVER had state of the art graphics, it has however had a very high frame rate, which I'll take over jaw slacking graphics any day.
i really dont get people like you.. i mean whats the point in a sequel?.. of course the gameplay will stay the same because thats what makes a game.. you keep the gameplay & throw in a few additions and change story or carry a story on.. that is a sequel.. i mean theres a bunch of new things here, new location/time period for COD.. new weapons, new perks, new equipment, new killstreaks, new control moves(such as diving & i think theres a roll in here somewhere), new way to customize your character/load-out, and although the graphics are similar to mw2(i personally think theyre abit better) it still has a new 'look' to guns n stuff.. and of course it has a new single player campaign.. so to me that is a SEQUEL, what the hell are you asking for?.. a new game?.. different gameplay? lol.. because if thats the case BUY A DIFFERENT GAME theres loads out there.. i mean Halo has the same base 'gameplay' each game although each game its got new weapons/locations, vehicles, gametypes.. but the core gameplay stays the same for every game thats what makes a halo/cod/killzone/gow/fighting game unique to the others.. but that own games sequels will always be similar to the last
I find it humorous that so many people ragged on MW2 and said that Black Ops would be a failure too, but one MP trailer and everyone's excited. I gotta admit that the trailer looks good, but then the first MP trailer for MW2 looked good too.
pretty nice! although they didnt notice that the 1st guys clan tag was engraved on his gun ;)
they finally got out of that primordial ooze of cod3 and making some good games. I think I'm just burnt out on COD. Ive played everyone of them. Im just gonna stick to halo reach.
