COD BlackOps 2 World Reveal May 1st?

April 23, 2012 in Black Ops, MultiPlayer, NEWS, Treyarch, Zombies

So the interwebz has been a buzz, especially twitter with this upcoming “World Reveal” of a Call of Duty game on May 1st (During NBA Playoffs). I will explain the “Title” of this article in a moment. So the “tweets” have been saying a reveal of a COD game, which is no surprise, as we have become quite accustom to a Blockbuster release in November by the franchise. Usually preceded by the reveals and teaser starting at or around the May timeframe (you all know E3 is just around the corner) We have also been witness to many “leaks” on BlackOps2 recently, with no “solid” proof. But if you will note the peeps that are the busiest tweeting about the reveal are associated primarily with Treyarch. I’ve pretty much been already sold on what I believe that Black Ops II will be released this November, and these recent tweets by Treyarch peeps are just making that more solid for me. What I did have in question; however, was if Zombies will break off to form it’s own COD series “Call of Dead”. Many of you state “I will not buy BO2 if it doesn’t have zombies with it” but I still think it can stand on it’s own. BUT……I did take note of Kevin Sherwood (Writer of the Zombie songs that Elena Siegman sings) tweeting out about this COD Reveal also, HMmmmmmmm…… Kinda makes you wonder if he may “know” something, Like maybe he has written some more awesome tunes for BO2 Zombies. What do you think?? It even seemed that he kinda got a smack on the hands by Dan Amrich (OneofSwords) from ATVI for his input. (This part is pure speculation on my part BTW, based on the tweets I’ve seen) You can check out the “reveal teaser” at callofduty.com on their front page. I’ve posted a pic of the only thing that can be made out (zoomed in some). Lets also remember that Sledgehammer Games was working on their own COD related game until they were pulled off of it to assist Infinity Ward complete MW3. So technically they may have something in store, but they sure are quiet. My take is that BlackOps2 will be the reveal and it WILL HAVE ZOMBIES :D unless Activision has FINALLY pulled off the biggest twist in the franchise history. I highly doubt it though, because they have to ensure that the shareholders are happy come November with a Blockbuster, and the only Blockbuster they is sure to deliver is BO2. But that is not to say that SHG may have something pop up in the middle of this. So what are your thoughts?? I’m sold on BO2 with Zombies! Do I have any wagers out there, LOL ?? Anyway check the COD website and back here often for future intel, check out the pic below, and follow @codbunker on twitter. Finally watch the NBA Playoffs for goodness sakes! ;)

COD MW3 Blackout on 4-20

April 20, 2012 in Black Ops, ELITE, Infinity Ward, MultiPlayer, MW3, NEWS, Sledgehammer

There has been a trickle of Modern Warfare 3 #Blackout hash tags on twitter and peeps discussing on FB. The “trickle” has been large enough to get noticed though. There is also a small “WhiteOut” movement (the antithesis of blackout movement) So TODAY is the day of the Blackout. I could not help but notice the IRONY of having the “BlackOut” on 420 (April 20th is Nat’l Pot Smoking Day). To make matters worse, Infinity Ward / SHG have announced DoubleXP across all platforms to celebrate the PS3′s DLC drop. So here’s what’s gonna happen (IMHO). Some blackout ‘ers will not have the willpower to pass up double xp; therefore, they will be playing. The 420 peeps are gonna get celebrate the blackout by getting stoned, only to later forget about blackout and that they were “mad” at IW/SHG and log on to play and give non-420 ‘ers like my self DOUBLEXP :P (slow reaction time, LOL) Then there is the rest of us (the majority). We are gonna play regardless because it’s not JUST the game, but “hanging” with our pals & clanmates that is part of the fun in the game. Don’t disregard that “we” (those of us playing) are not irritated at many aspects of MW3 that CERTAINLY need improving, not to mention BeachHead Studios “ELITE” that has been a TOTAL wreck. But IMHO, a “blackout” is not going to solve this. If you are THAT unhappy with the game/franchise, DO NOT PURCHASE IT this November (when BlackOps2 is sure to come out), if it’s just IW/SHG’s Modern Warfare series, DON’T PURCHASE THE NEXT MW RELEASE! This is what get’s Activisions attention………MONEY, not a blackout. I personally feel the franchise has been hurt somewhat by the lack of leadership and DISCONNECT, but I also feel that come NOVEMBER, Mark Lamia will surprise all of us and take the “franchise” into his capable hands with Treyarch and turn UP the COD fever a notch………This is my opinion, but just REMEMBER that I said here and now (BTW, I already told you above I’m not a partaker of 420, so don’t say I’m “smoking” anything :P ) Anyways, who’s gonna join me and get some DubXP :) “It’ll make you feel good………..go ahead and try it……” (I couldn’t resist!)
