Black Ops 2 Mulitplayer Reveal AND MORE!!!

August 14, 2012 in BlackOps2, NEWS, Treyarch

This Call of Duty by Treyarch is going to be SIC SIC SIC!!! We’ve all been following along with the “leaked” intel and Scheduled intel releases, but as each rumor is dispelled or “fact’d” plus finding out SO MUCH MORE that this game is going to have as the days are drawing closer….There is NO DOUBT that BLACK OPS II will be the LARGEST ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE EVER!!! (this will be 4 years straight of record breaking IMHO) I will even go as far to say that 2013′s release will not match up to this game. (These are strictly my opinions, remember) But let’s look at Treyarch’s progression in the COD Franchise, Lead by Mark Lamia (WHAT A STUD!!!) Let’s go back to World at War….Not much to talk about really, most thought it was a flop; however, I loved it, but it did lack a lot of graphics but I loved run’n and gun’n with my MP40, then…..A GIANT STEP into Black Ops, bring innovation such as the Dolphin Dive (which is back for BO2) game “DVR” and video editing, inviting to party without going to dashboard or XMB, etc….too much to list. NOW……..OMG Not ALL has been revealed yet; however, with GamesCon2012 going on now and if you’ve been following twitter feeds like I have (Twitter has blown up, LOL) and what we do know so far thanks to twitterverse, this is taking Treyarch & COD to a level, I think, that seems years ahead of it’s time. Below is the video of the “Official Reveal for Multiplayer” but I will tell you some of the things I’ve seen confirmed by the Dev’s and others at GamesCon (God I wished I was there right now).

Do you have a Capture Card to livestream? ….NO PROBLEM, You will be able to livestream from your Console….SAY WHAT???? Oh yes :D They did that. There will be no Pro Perks, but one of the BEST things I found out WRT Perks is GHOST, most of us hate it due to the abuse by campers….WELL GUESS WHAT CAMPERS, CAMP AWAY because GHOST only hides you if you are moving in BO2, LOLOLOLOLOL :D Well done and THANK YOU Treyarch! One big feature this game will have is the 10 slot base setup. You will setup your classes, guns, perks etc, by filling up your 10 slots, this will undoubtedly have a HUGE variety of how people play this game tailored to JUST themselves…….WICKED IDEA. You want 3 attachments on a weapon, go right ahead, use 3 slots with 7 left for other stuff, mix and match it baby ;)

ALSO NOTE, in the video below the “ShoutCasting” at the end of the video, this will be awesome and hilarious IMHO.

Also gone is the “COD Points” or “COD Money” that we seen in Black Ops. BO2 will have an “unlock system” instead. (Have to say I’m glad about this) Kill streaks are gone…..sorta, they have been replaced with “ScoreStreaks” Obtain points towards ScoreStreak to obtain items listed below:

RCC — 325 points — A remote-controlled car packed with explosives.

COD7 Black Ops Final Grade

November 9, 2011 in Black Ops, NEWS

Black-Ops-GradeWe started giving a final grade with Modern Warfare 2 (COD6) it is now that time for Call of Duty Black Ops (COD7). Treyarch was considered by many COD fans as the “Little Brother” in the COD franchise, where Infinity Ward was the “BIG DOG”. Mostly because of the HUGE success of IW’s Modern Warfare, and MW2, where COD5 World at War by Treyarch was considered “a step back” and it’s sales were less than desired, to say the least. During the development of WaW, Treyarch was working on other games, and COD5 was not it’s ONLY focus (many did not know this) so keep that in mind. Then in 2010 IW had a huge shake up with the departure of many of it’s top talent. This left room for Treyarch to now step up to the plate, adding to that, 3arc was ONLY working on 1 game…….. “Black Ops” To the amazement of many in the gaming world SHATTERED IW’s records. I personally was not surprised.
Quotes from the past by CODBUNKER:

“If you know the COD history, then you know Infinity Ward has been the #1 COD design group and Treyarch has been the “little brother”. We also have seen recently the Studio Heads and other employees at IW bail. So now Treyarch, who has been “stuck” with “old war” type games gets to enter into a new era (the Cold War) where a lot of today’s “Modern Warfare” began. I’m sure Mark Lamia (Studio Head at Treyarch) is aware of this environment and how he is poised to take Treyarch to the #1 spot. What an opportunity! This is one of many reasons Treyarch HAS to be successful with Black Ops, the throne is empty now.”

“I am beginning to think this could be BIGGER than MW2. Analyst are already predicting Black Ops to sell at least 60% of what MW2 did (remember MW2 was the largest Entertainment release EVER….this includes Movie DVD’s). Yet don’t forget we are still 6 months out. This could be EPIC!”

I am putting the “Bad” first, because IMO there is less to read here ;)
Biggest complaint that you hear, and that I have experienced is LAG just as MW2 earned a nicnname “Modern Warfail”, Black Ops was dubbed “Lag Ops” For those of you that have played “Lag Ops” you know what I am saying. Sometimes due to you connection (over the internet) you can be a guy with a KDR of 2.00 and get destroyed by a player with a KDR of 0.72. You unload a clip into this enemy and he turns, shoots you once, you die. You watch the “Kill Cam” and see his take on it, where it shows you looking at him, and not firing at all, where he dumps half a clip into you killing you. This is LAG!!! In the previous COD releases if you were the host, then you had a huge advantage. The way it seemed to work is since you were the host, you would be operating in a more real time setting, where others connected to your console would see 20ms-100ms of delay. I believe that 3arc tried to compensate for this by forcing a delay based on pings to various players from the host. Unfortunately, these ping times vary on the internet with your connection constantly; therefore, it will never be perfect. I feel that 3arc comp’d it TOO much, because 90% of the time when I was host, I couldn’t kill nobody. When I wasn’t host, I did SOOOO much better.

I was not real impressed with the weapons Black Ops gave us. Not the weapons per se, but the FEEL of them. They seemed to have too much bounce, and in a lot of cases sounded “tin-canny” No gun had the feel of a SCAR-H :) that’s what I like, that feel But the BIGGEST beef with weapons is “the 3arc mayor” David Vonderhaar’s CONSTANT “Nerfing” and tinkering with fire rates, power, etc of every weapon, even up to 7+ months into the games release. So you would find a setup that you felt comfortable with, then all of the sudden, it sucked and you didn’t know why…………Thank Vahn! I understand trying to eliminate the effect of WaW’s MP40, which is what everybody used; however, he was obsessed with this! GRRRrrrr!

More bad stuff………….hmmmmm…….I’m thinking………Ok I need your help on this one, can’t really think of any thing else at the moment???

There is really a lot here, so I will be short and sweet, to the point.
- Shattered ALL entertainment release sales records (as I predicted)
- DVR type feature added, so you can relive your awesome kills and even upload them straight to youtube….SAY WHAT!! AWESOME!!
- GUI (Graphical User Interface) was incredible.
- Comparing your stats to friends.
- Create your own ICON, user tag!!! KEWL!!!
- COD points / bucks / money earned besides just XP, you had to manage your weapons/perks/etc purchases.
- Campaign mode was spellbinding (ending kinda weird but kept you hooked)

Zombies, Call of the Dead WILL stand alone as it’s own release, mark my word. This was just to innovative, addicting, and impressive. Watch for it to become it’s own COD title.

There are many more great things to say, and probably a few bad that I have not mentioned, so you are welcome to comment and add your, good, bad, or ugly! Due to the lag, I really wanted something between a B+ and A-, but there isn’t such a thing, so for it’s innovation and record setting achievements, CODBUNKER final grading of Call of Duty Black Ops….. A-



Blatant Boosting on COD7 Black Ops

September 19, 2011 in Black Ops, MultiPlayer

I still can’t believe how dumb people are on Call of Duty Black Ops, when they try to “BOOST”
Boosting is where you get a friend to “join your session” in hopes of getting on the other team and then using ghost and tactical insertions, let your cheating buddy kill you as often as he/she can. Thanks to Treyarch and COD7 we now have “essentially” a DVR in the game. So these idiots can not only be caught red handed in their cheating, but reviewed, recorded, etc, as often as anyone wants……..Including Treyarch, Activision, Playstation, Xbox Live, etc…..can you say “BAN HAMMER” I’ll bet [D3TH]MR-MOUNTIONDEW (booster) and [CERO]MrMountaindewJR (boostee) are sorry they ever attempted this on Black Ops. As we discussed it in the game, once we figured out somebody was getting a knife kill every 10 seconds on the same teammate of ours (kills in lower left hand side of game). Not much else to say but DUMB!!! Watch video to see how stupid they are then when caught watch em bail :)
