Call of the Dead COD7 Zombies Map Pack 2

April 29, 2011 in Black Ops, NEWS, Zombies

You MUST WATCH this Video! If you STILL haven’t played Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies yet, YOU WILL! I’ve heard “I just don’t get into zombies that much, I’d rather play Multiplayer” among many others. I will agree, at the beginning, W@W Zombie map 1, I wasn’t too impressed either, then Veruckt got my attention, then when Der Riese Came along (huge imagination leap forward) it was all over, I was a Call of Duty Zombie playing fool. But the next one that will be released May 3rd on DLC to Xbox (PS3 and others 30 days later, Xbox deal with Activision) is going to be the MOTHER of all zombie games PERIOD. I can’t wait, and once you see this video below, you too (those non zombie players) will be checking it out also. It is my VERY STRONG opinion that with this release, it is the beginning of Call of the Dead breaking away from the Multiplayer game of Treyarch, into its own game……..Mark my word, after SHGames & IW release their COD, then when 3arc comes around again it will split, and Call of the Dead will stand alone, while 3arc’s inventive minds will add another realm to the Multiplayer experience! What say you?

Black Ops Zombies Ascension Problems on Xbox?

February 8, 2011 in Black Ops, Zombies

Are you having problems playing COD7 Zombies on Xbox right now? The last few days, I would get into a lobby and during “Host Migration” all of us would get kicked out. Multiplayer worked fine, just the zombie mode would not work. I contacted XboxSupport and went through the “drill” of checking port forwarding, plugging straight into modem (bypassing the router) all along KNOWING that my setup is correct (I do this kind of stuff for my day job “Networking” etc) but I followed their lead to assist them in troubleshooting. I also tried to use “Default” setting and “Locale Only” to no avail. Finally XboxSupport suggest that I try “Locale” setting. Reluctant that it wouldn’t work, I tried it and VIOLA’ it worked :) I got into a game of Ascension and played to round 20. So I haven’t been able to attempt this again, (it was bedtime) but I will attempt this tonight. Please leave a comment if you are having the same issue, so we can get this figured out for good. I spoke to at least 20 people in the lobbies and that was having the same issue, so if this is happening to you, let us know and also try “Locale” setting (not default or locale only, but LOCALE) Happy Zombie Killing :D

** UPDATE 2/12/2011 **
Still having same issues; however, they seem ‘less’. “Locale” setting definitely seems to help, but it takes a while to get into a lobby, and then, 60%-70% of the time somebody (or myself) gets kicked at the “Host Migration” as before, Multiplayer works GREAT, it’s only on Zombies………..I don’t even think they are looking into this issue, because too many are just being patient and try over and over, so if your having this issue please let us know so we have data to show that this IS AN ISSUE! tks :)
