Black Ops Zombie Jam Time!

April 15, 2012 in Black Ops, Zombies

While playing Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies (if you can make it 20+ rounds) you know sometimes it can be monotonous. One of the BEST things Treyarch/Activision did is employ Kevin Sherwood (song writer) & Elena Siegman (singer) to do the “easter egg” zombie songs. Playing them mid way through an event of a long zombies match is SO COOL and breaks it up. So make sure you “save” the song for when you need a break to just “JAM OUT” with Richtofen or whomever your character is. We got in a match last night (taking break from prestiging in MW3) and these to catz (Devo & Puma) started breaking it down, LOL, so I recorded it, just to show you all that zombies are so rich with fun, and wanted to say a big thanks to Kevin and Elena for adding to that :)

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Coming in 2012???

February 9, 2012 in Black Ops, COD9, Infinity Ward, NEWS, Sledgehammer, Zombies

There WILL BE a Call of Duty game release this year (2012) which to many is NO surprise ;) But the question is what will it be. Activision is a Publicly owned Company (traded on the NASDAQ as ATVI) so it goes without saying, they have to make money to please the shareholders. (SO OF COURSE THERE’S GONNA BE ONE IN 2012 BOBBY!!!) See part of Earnings statement with link to full version at bottom!

Let’s do a little logic and timeline shall we:
2009 MW2 release shattered all previous records (ATVI makes lots of $$$)
2010 Black Ops release shattered all previous records (ATVI makes lots of $$$)
2011 MW3 release shattered all previous records (ATVI makes lots of $$$)

No in between these timelines we note that Infinity Ward (Modern Warfare Peeps) had lots of “drama”
Sledgehammer Games came along and was invited to the party to create another type of COD.
Then when ATVI realized IW needed help for MW3, SH Games was enlisted to help them (pausing their production)
SOOOOOoooooo Does ATVI go with SH Games Release for 2012 or the “Almost Guaranteed” $$$ maker Black Ops 2.

Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops-II-2

We are still not sure what type of game SHG is working on, but If I was going to put money down in “Vegas” Here is how I would say it plays out (at least near term)

SHG’s game will be mid year release in 2012 or 2013, but not THE MAJOR release since MW and BLOPS are guaranteed money. So I’m suggesting that this year (Nov 6, 2012) COD Black Ops II will be released. I’m not so sure that it will have Zombies though. I think since “Call of the Dead” (which I think will be a new series) was so successful it will stand on it’s own…..possibly, and may be just like my suggestion of SHG’s and be a Mid type year release. So what are you thoughts?
What is coming out this year?
Will SHG have it’s own MAJOR?
Will Call of Dead become it’s OWN title?
Your thoughts…………….

Kotick added, “Our extraordinary employees around the world are focused on making 2012 another great year for our audience and stakeholders. Blizzard Entertainment plans to have multiple highly-anticipated titles to release, including Diablo® III, and Activision Publishing expects to release a new Call of Duty game. In addition, Activision Publishing expects to continue to grow Call of Duty Elite and launch Skylanders Giants™.”
