Nuketown Zombies Chess

14 posts in this topic

Posted

Have any good Chess players looked at the chess board in NTZ, and seen if there is any significance to the placements of the pieces on the table? For example, is there any specific names or special moves in chess that could correlate to the story and/or moves towards the Easter Egg (if there is any?)

Don't have Nuketown otherwise I would take a look, only really familar with kings pawn, queens pawn, and queens gambit opening strategies.

I don't have a capture card, and to take a pic with my phone would be pointless because the quality would be terrible. If u guys have PSN you could go on my profile and look. I bought the hardened edition so that's how I have Nuketown Zombies for PS3.

-thx NGT!-

The thought of this being significant did cross my mind when I originally watched this but I forgot all about it.

Hmm… Checkmate, I believe. Could each color symbolize a faction? One Richtofen/Zombies and the other Maxis/Any survivors? Just a thought.

Not checkmate, neither king is even in check. Only thing to note about this arrangement is that it's a random endgame scenario, so random in fact, the pieces appear to be placed at...random!

Also, we are missing pieces. Look at the pieces that have been taken together with whats on the board. The rooks are missing as well as a number of pawns and some other pieces as well.

Lastly, the white pawn that made it to black's back rank should be a queen (for those of you that don't play chess, when you get a pawn all the way to the other side of the board you can exchange it for a piece you lost).

White wins this game btw unless they are complete crap.

I hate how much Treyarch has copy/pasted props from BO1 into BO2 maps. In a lot of ways I feel like I got a recycled repackaged game, rather than something new.

This chess board was originally found in Samantha's room on Kino der Toten:

Agreed. I was just playing Nuketown 2025 and the darn Chess Board pieces are in the same place!!! I guess there is no significance to the Chess Board. There HAS to be some sort of Easter Egg on NTZ!!!

1. d4 Kf4 ( 1... Ke4 2. Nd6+ ) 2. Ne7 Na7 3. d5 Ke5 4. Nc6+ Nxc6 5. dxc6 Kd6 6. a7

White trades N for N while promoting both pawns.

I KNEW I recognised that chess board from somewhere.

I agree, unfinished, with recycled props, I'm dissapointed.

And people keep telling me to wait for DLC before I pass judgement...Phssss, TO HELL WITH DLC.
