  3. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Thank you, anonymous. You specifically have been really proactive in responding to cheer me up after this whole ordeal, and I really appreciate it. You are truly kind, and also definitely deserving of the User of the Month title : P I'm only done with Call of Duty Zombies. Nothing will stop me talking about the stories of games. Caring about that stuff is essentially my purpose in life. Truthfully, Zombies was only one of many franchises that I loved. At one point, it was the one I loved the most, but that was a while ago. My Youtube channel will remain as a canvas for me to make pretty much just whatever I feel like making in the future. But my real goal is to one day make a compelling game narrative of my own. It is funny though, I also only got into Zombies for the arcade-style gameplay. Heh. Portal is one of my beloved franchises, although really Half-Life and Portal are two halves of the same franchise. I know everything about Portal, although my Half-Life knowledge is lacking, sorry. And thanks again!
  4. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Hey everybody, if you haven't heard, this series is now concluded. All twelve parts of the series have been aired, in addition to the Credits as well as a video that covers my thoughts on the new timeline. The Credits feature every person to my knowledge who ever helped in debating this storyline or helped it out in some other manner. The other video is, well, not exactly how I intended to end the series, but it's done all the same. I hope you guys enjoyed the series, but this marks the conclusion of my time with Zombies. If you watch the last video, you'll understand why. You guys have been great, but I just feel I need to move on with my life. I hope you guys enjoyed this series, this culmination of the work that first brought to this website. I hope I've left something worth having seen. I wouldn't have been able to do it without you all. I'll probably lurk occasionally, but not very often. If you ever want to reach out to me, you can find my email on my Youtube channel. Thank you
  5. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    I'm not upset that they released the timeline. I'm just upset that they waited so very long after "The End" of zombies (Revelations) to release this timeline that has never-before-seen info. I should've known better. It's Call of Duty. There never will be an end... But, thank you for the kind words guys. I really appreciate it.
  6. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    I am personally devastated at this. I waited so long in case something like this happened, but they actually did it. Nearly a year after Revelations but they did it. My series is going ahead as scheduled, but I have added a video for the purpose of this timeline. The grand picture shifted beneath my feet. Dates were added, new fan fiction -ahem- facts were added, and the universal picture was somewhat different. I don't think I was really that off. The fact that they admitted Moon had to be in 2025 means I helped influence it. But there's simply so much mentioned there that was never once ever mentioned in the games… Honestly, I just want to take a long break from zombies now… I'm only even answering this question because it is you, Rissole, and you too, Mac. I'm just…. so tired… Thanks for everyone's help in getting where we got to without the timeline.
  7. Zombie Chronicles CONFIRMED? ESRB Rating

    Wouldn't it be kinda funny if they just released the game bundled with DLC and the printed comic? (I'm still highly doubtful this will be a thing. Refurbished content at best.)
  8. In the Shadow of Richtofen - Trailer

    Hey there! I think that was rather amusing! Overall, I think you did a good job. The creepy voice was cool, as well as the overlay effects. My only real point of criticism is that I think it was a bit long. Three minutes is a bit much for something that's supposed to be a trailer, you know? It seemed more of a short story action video at 3 minutes. Oh, also, if it really was supposed to be a trailer, I think some type of promotional screen at the end with the title (you know, the kind that usually has the date of release and other small text no one reads) on it. Anyhow, good job!
  9. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Hey everyone, so, my documentary series on Treyarch's Zombies is halfway over, so I just thought I'd update this thread with the videos that have been releasing every week. I understand Treyarch's Zombies is over, and people are anticipating newer Zombies by other Call of Duty companies, but I hope some of you can still enjoy the tale of what was always the best, in my opinion, Zombies story. This wouldn't have been possible without so many of you, so thanks again. Part 1: The Beginning The First One creates the 63 Universes and life. The Great War is fought between the Keepers and Apothicons. Mankind begins to inhabit the majority of the Earth. Group 935 forms prior to World War II. Maxis and Richtofen fracture Group 935 into factions. Part 2: Cold War Era Samantha rises to power and wipes out Group 935. Zombies unleash shortly after World War II.

  10. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Hey everyone! Part one of this documentary is now live! Please watch if you get the chance and show people and whatnot. All that stuff. Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible! The credits will be on the last one. Don't worry! Also, could a staff member perhaps move this into the zombie hub or general zombies forum or something? I'd really appreciate it. : ) EDIT: Thank you staff! : D
  11. What the community SHOULD be asking...

    My interpretation is that there isn't a singular loop. Loops, timelines, alternate universes, and paradoxes appear all over the story. They're kinda vague and kinda inconsistent. For example, Groph and SOPHIA both reference Maxis specifically with the line "the loop must be closed". Groph says Maxis says this. Actually, Maxis said "the paradox must be resolved". Close, but like I said, inconsistent. Der Riese had long been speculated to be in a time loop. Alcatraz literally for a fact is in one. While not technically loops per-say, many things have gone back in time to change things to not quite succeed, giving the appearance of a loop to the casual observer. And in several levels, resurrection upon death is explicitly used to explain a loop of life and death upon playing the levels: TranZit-Buried, Mob of the Dead, Origins. This leads to speculation that there are systems for reverting to life from death in other levels as well. We can for a certainty say that the Mobsters in Mob of the Dead were in a loop that repeated a HUGE number of times. The entirety of Black Ops III (Giant to Gorod Krovi) could be considered a loop as well. Richtofen indicated many times that he had gone through those events before, that he has been there and done this an uncountable number of times. These would be branching in alternate timelines, but to him, his life would seem to be a loop. This is why Richtofen is so aloof and doesn't explain much throughout this series. He's already done it so many times that he just doesn't waste the time doing it anymore. That's my interpretation anyway.

    Big news everyone! There is a trailer and a release date for the video series born out of this very thread! A Zombie Trilogy!
  13. Is Zombies Dying (Mega Discussion)

    I agree that dying is not quite the accurate word. Recession I think is more likely. A franchise this big is really too big to let fail. Whatever goes wrong will continue to go wrong until someone realizes to "fix" things, whatever that may be. It's kinda like an economy, recessions and growths. Battlefield did something different because they had to do so to grow, and it paid off. While the arguments that people get tired of too much zombies, too much DLC, too much Call of Duty, or too much hype, and that non-Treyarch zombies are just uninspired are true at least to an extent, I think what has really demotivated much of the community is the lack of resolution in the main Zombies, Treyarch zombies. Revelations seems across the board a huge letdown in the storyline. Many who put energy into understanding the story feel they were ripped off or wasted their time. The big twist was that there was no twist. I think the way Treyarch ended their series didn't matter for them. Games these days often have crappy endings because consumers don't pay for endings. By the time you find out the end, 99% of the consumer base has already paid for the game. Treyarch's bottom line wasn't affected. BUT, the consumers are still spurned, and that is having an effect on the poor sap who tries to sell his or her zombie game next, i.e. Infinity Ward. I'd also like to address InfestLithium's categories. Having been here quite a while, I can't help but feel a category should be included for burned-out fans. I've known many, many die-hard fans, be them of gameplay or story, who after a while just can't keep up. There's so many reasons for doing so. They feel they've lost touch with where the franchise is going. They find the cost of doing so prohibitive. They have better things to do with their time. And that leads me to my last point. We shouldn't ask if zombies is dying, but rather, are zombie fans dying? A bit of tongue-and-cheek there, but I'm somewhat serious. While I don't have the data on this, I'm willing to say the demographic that Call of Duty, and to a narrower extent, Zombies, appeals to are males approximately thirteen to thirty. World at War was released in 2008. Many, many fans are young teenagers, and many have had to move on in their lives. It's why I see so many people come and go, because they leave high school, they go to college, they get a job, they get married, they have kids, and some, yes, even some, die. The die-hard fans that have been holding the game up are continually decreasing in number because time inexorably moves forward, and more and more of us decide there's only so much time, money, and resources we can devote to a game. With any product, this will eventually be an issue. But the resources it takes to play zombies to its full potential, the code breaking, the story analyzing, the committing to five-hour games just to beat a level, I believe take a toll on even the most intense supporters that contributes to this franchise having a higher burnout rate than any other non-MOBA franchise I know. The solution is to bring in new die-hard fans as fast as you lose them, but that just isn't happening. It isn't because the story is too complex for them to understand. It's because the storyTELLING is too obtuse for any sane person to understand. Until they can overcome this issue, I think Zombies is just going to be relegated to a just-for-fun game-mode tagged onto the yearly Call of Duty game, rather than the serious historically-inspired, ideaologically-thrilling, discussion-provoking game that we knew it to be, in its simpler days, when we dreamed of it becoming something big. Well, it's big now, but big like a balloon, with little substance underneath. And well, balloons pop.
  14. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Thanks Lenne! That's old news, Meh, but I haven't forgotten it. The original version was vI. The edited one I had to reupload was vII. This one I'm making and going to promote will be vIII, going along with Black Ops III. The new version is vastly superior to the old one. The old one barely had visuals. I have gone through great efforts to try to stay within the confines of copyright law, much like how E. Coli tries to stay within the bounds of an ever-confining organ dripping with corrosive bile. (Too harsh?) And yes, Meh, you did contribute. The conversations we had? You gave me outlook onto things with this story. Guys, don't be surprised that you contributed. Even if you only did so a bit, I made note of it. You're a Contributor unless at some point you chose not to be. People like Tac, who so publicly put in considerable input, are listed as Dedicated Contributors. Also, I will be releasing a trailer soon in the coming weeks so you guys can see what it is.
  15. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    @anonymous Thank you! The link doesn't work? It is Google Docs. Here, try this one: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nM_3h2U9bm5iAXfhgWRvvoTmuKQSySw90oVkvjf2NY0/edit You've made several posts on here that contributed to this project, many times challenging or questioning ideas, but that is part of contribution. You'd be hard pressed to find everyone agreeing on every bit of this project. That's why I emphasized that contribution isn't equal to 100% endorsement of every bit of detail. Thanks again! The story of Buried is used mainly as a transition into the multiverse tale. In Maxis's end of Buried, he shatters the universe into alternate realms. The story of Origins is then told, which breaks the barriers between realms. Then it is just a matter of going through the remaining realms. I don't mention the Rift that much, maybe once or twice. It just says how it is a huge spatial/temporal disturbance created by 115 that is responsible for Buried's amalgamated state. The towers are for Maxis's Plan B, which is what I call the device used in the end of Buried. The comics are mentioned briefly. In the grand scheme of things, as they have been going so far, it seems their plot is incredibly insignificant. I was going to wait until the comics were finished, but they keep delaying the release of them. They're going to milk them until the next game comes out I bet. I'm not waiting for that when the existing comics have been so incredibly light on content. I mention the zombie Richtofen once, and I also mention the Survivors go on "adventures" through super Richtofen's portals.
  16. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Hello! You know that Call of Duty Zombies Storyline I headed with the help of so much of you guys? I am nearly finished with the new version, which is technically version III, updated for Black Ops III! Here is the script It is a 12-part video series that I have spent a LONG TIME and a LOT OF WORK on. But I didn't do it alone. I had a lot of help from you guys. I am now working on the credits. As I've stated before, I am including everyone on the credits who helped this project, directly and sometimes indirectly. If you feel you should've been listed, just let me know and I'll add you to the list. If you don't want your name on this project, speak up and let me know. I also have portraits of all the Zombies characters, and I'm going to reuse the portrait format for the contributors. To make things simple, I will be using the last username of which I knew, in addition to your current/most recent avatar. Since so many of the contributors are no longer active, I'm going to do it with this understanding. If you wish to not be involved, go by a different name, or use a different image to represent you, please let me know. You can opt out. Once the video is live, there's not much I can do. Being listed doesn't mean you endorse literally everything said in the series. Below are the credits!

  17. Thank You Jason Blundell

    I'm with Slade here. I used to defend Treyarch but there's only so much one can bear. They're not evil, but they are severely misguided lately. Ciphers were a bad idea from the start. The entire community relied on only a handful of dedicated codebreakers. When those few fail, entire pages are missing from the storyline. Plus, the lies and near-lies were rampant from the start. Half-baked promises that could never be kept. With Jimmy Zielinski, you always knew he was purposefully being cryptic to get at you. But with Black Ops III, they took the route of impersonating credibility. i.e. They tried their hardest to make promises and get people to believe them. Falling for propaganda is not a good idea. But you can't simply blame the victims. You must point the finger at the designers of the propaganda. People are not interested in zombie talk these days because there's just little left to talk about. "What's the point?" many ask. It is a valid question, one I hope to answer. Also, come on. God is apparently an old British white guy? Seriously?! How offensive is that?!!! I know this has been a series that's already been dominated by white male heroes and constant inappropriate depictions of women, but come on! (If you don't believe me about the woman thing, consider there ratio is often 0:4 or at best 1:3, whereas in the real world it would be 2:2. Also, Misty. Also, opening shot of Jessica Rose, between the legs. =_= )
  18. CoD Zombies Comic #3 Revealed + Cpmic #2 Delayed

    So via some back-of-the-envelope estimations, the sixth issue won't be out until October-December of NEXT year. Totally not worth it. I've been waiting to finish my series because of the comic. I am considering doing so no longer. The first comic didn't answer a single question with the story. Just raised more. This delay is a bad omen.
  19. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Don't worry Rissole. It is set to allow people to suggest and comment things, not directly edit.
  20. A Zombie Trilogy v.III [NOW IN VIDEO]

    Hey I just wanted to give anyone who cared an update on this project. It is still going well. It is just going to take time. The script is basically done. I am literally just waiting on the CoDz comic to be finished, hopefully by next summer. I hate waiting for such little content, but I want to address everything in the series. In the meantime, I have been working on production of the video series. It is much improved to last time. On the screen are the narration subtitles, as well as headshots of relevant characters being discussed as well as a large section showing images, videos, or charts relevant to what is being said. I have even gotten permission to use MrDalekJD's content in the video, which has been a big help for footage. In between the narration of the story is every radio or relevant clip of audio or animation there is, transcribed. These series will be 10 to 20 episodes, one hour each, and it will cover everything World at War to Black Ops III and then some. Cyborg Zombies, Extinction, Exo Zombies, and Spaceland Zombies will get a mention, but nothing more. This is about Treyarch's Zombies. There will be a not-too-extensive section on the campaign as well, followed by the Nightmares zombie version of it. I have all of the narration, radios, quotes, scenes, subtitles, and headshots complete. I am mainly working on the relevant images and video now, and I will update the production once the comics are done. This way I should be 99% done with production by the time the comics are done. Long before, actually. In the meantime while I work on production, if you'd like to simply read the script, you can find it here. I also aim to credit callofdutyzombies.com, as this project wouldn't have been possible without you guys. And I have a list trying to credit anyone who's ever helped, unless they opted out. I know the site is getting pretty slow lately, but I will see this project to the end. I just wanted to let you guys know since at this point, I've been just quietly, steadily working on this, a few nights each week.
  21. A Change in Treyarch's Management

    Personally I just think it is corporate title changes without any meaningful change.
  22. All Group 601 References

    Thanks Rissole! Group 601 I think is one of the most forgotten things about the story, simply because not much is known about it. There is one thing I think we can reasonably conclude however. Given its remarkable similarity in its logo to Group 935, I think it is sufficient to say that the two Groups must be, or must have been, related at some point, in some fashion. And, given the German lightning bolts and text, 601 must also have been contracted by the WWII Germans. Beyond that, who knows what happened to them.
  23. CoDZ comic #1!

    Huh. No I didn't catch that. You've got a good eye, Rissole. Honestly I dislike that we have to wait what 4-5 months before this comic is done? I'd like to just get it done and analyze it all at once, not piecemeal. : /
  24. CoDZ comic #1!

    I have many doubts. The story is already "messed up", so that's not a real metric. Occam's razor dictates that one cannot suppose a multiverse unless it is established as fact. Until we get some concrete evidence that supposes what was previously thought to be one universe was actually separate ones the whole time, we are forced to conclude the most likely explanation is that they are from the same universe. If this portal takes them to another city, full of zombies, facing the same plotline as they always have, then it is the same universe for all intents and purposes. If the portal takes them to a world where the Greeks won World War II, then yes it would be separate. Being wacky is not enough. Chronology is more important. And yes, there's always the chance that it could be an alternate universe with differences so small that it is indistinguishable as another universe. But by that same logic, you could exist in a different universe than I. We could split timelines any moment. For if the difference cannot be observed nor measured, then the distinction is meaningless and can only exist in discussion of unobservable hypotheses or faith that the differences even exist at all.
  25. CoDZ comic #1!

    I really don't think they should nor would go with making the events of Black Ops II trans-dimensional. Not more so than it already was. There's no need to separate the three levels that defined that saga into separate universes. Sure it was wacky and had a weird timeline, but it has been established for years. Going back and pulling out the rug and saying "psych you all got it wrong all those years ago back before we were even hired to think up some horrible twist idea that wasn't even conceptualized back then!" is just plain wrong. Besides, the main game focused so much on dimension jumping, and this zombie Richtofen is a new-ish guy. I think this is just going to be its own arc, with referential allusions to the main story. Personally, the interpretation I have thus far is that this is simply a tale between journies. I would say between Die Rise and Buried, but that's not an American city. Are we sure the city is American? Where did that come from? Couldn't it be a city in the Eastern hemisphere? Anyhow, this was the biggest gap in their adventure, so it'd make sense to be at that time. If not, then my next guess would be between TranZit and Die Rise (but with a back-in-time pit stop at Nuketown). I like the introduction of zombie Richtofen, but who knows what it's relevance will turn out to be. I don't think we're going to get any revelations from these comics, just some more filler. (I thought the same thing of Revelations and that turned out to be true, well, plus a conclusion to the series). By that I mean I didn't need to rewrite my story much at all. If this holds to be true, then that would mean that the Subjects on the Moon died, and Richtofen's body reanimated in a "special" way that made it more evil than the rest. It got back on Earth via the No Man's Land teleporter and raised an army. What was special about it? Have we ever needed a reason for that? *cough* Subject Two-Six *cough* Pentagon Thief *cough* George Romero *cough* Him
