    The origins of the Pack-a-Punch machine

    My personal theory is the Keeper/Apothicon PaP and box designs were only present at Origins from the great battle. But perhaps near the end of the battle the PaP was destroyed, and its pieces were taken to the King’s new castle and left there. I believe this since in Der Eisendrache to acquire the PaP you have to go to 2 of the 3 pads and teleport the pieces back together. So the pieces were taken to the castle after the Great War, and when 935 took over they used teleporter technology to create a device to reassemble the pieces in their original form. In Origins in 1918 we even see the PaP is broken when you start, but with enough power from all the generators, it can reassemble itself, while the box is fully intact and may have never left the dig site.

    Beta

    Yep, I mean, I enjoyed BO3 multiplayer, it just doesn't feel like typical Treyarch to be so unimaginative.

    Beta

    The multiplayer just isn't really doing it for me this time around. I feel like with each Black Ops game before the changes were an evolution of the previous, but gameplay this time around doesn't really strike me as interesting. I'm sure it'll be good, but the beta isn't a great indicator of what my actual experience will be months into the game's launch. I remember really liking WWII's beta but when I got the game the shallowness sunk in so much I ended up trading it in recently, and I NEVER do that. I just really didn't want to own it anymore. I hope Treyarch surprises me here, and they have a tendency to do that. But Blackout and Zombies are the more interesting side of the game this year, though I really don't enjoy Battle Royale modes so I hope the map can be used in other ways that I will enjoy. I suppose we will see, and I will play this beta.

    Blood of the Dead Intro Cutscene

    I feel like they should do a lot to show some progression in the characters. I think Black Ops 3’s gradually showed Primis grow as a team while progressing the story and being entertaining to watch as well as setting the tone. Gorod’s cutscene did really well in setting Gorod as a goofy, over the top map where all hell has broke loose thanks to Ace of Spades. Der Eisendrache and Zetsubou could have been better though. I also like to see things I don’t expect. So less, “they go the place”, and more unexpected events like this one.
  5. Let's discuss this cutscene and what you guys think it means. Maybe it's just the hype but it feels like my favorite zombies cutscene in a while. RadAustins27 discussed on his podcast potential theories behind the scene, and I'm of the belief that the Richtofen there when they arrive is from Post-Revelations, while Primis that shows up is after Zetsubou No Shima. This is an alternate version of the events of the timeline, as Richtofen notes the change in the pages in the Kronorium. They also pointed to the significance of his "Opening the gateway, a vessel for Maxis" line when Primis arrives. The Richtofen there is clearly distressed by something to have just happened, and any time this line is said in Origins, the Giant, and I believe Gorod and Revelations, Richtofen is stressed and trying to regain his mind. It is ptentially the effect of him traveling so much through time, as it deteriorates his mind, and he has to reframe his thinking to the place that started it all, his time in Origins. This would point to the Richtofen already there having just done something to alter time or stress him in some way, perhaps killing the version of himself that was guiding Victis into the pods. Or perhaps he killed him even earlier, and built the lab in a different area of the prison, hence why Primis arrives further away than expected.

    My Apologies

    You should not beat yourself up over it, school can be a real living Hell sometimes. Many of us know that. I would say definitely say that should be number one priority. This forum and the rest of us will be here for a long time. I have a lot of respect for you, and thank you for making this forum as awesome as it is!

    Ultimis in the Pentagon

    I think it will be really interesting to have a map with Blundell-type writing and story and characters from a much... simpler time in Zombies history. As much as I love Ultimis, they barely have any character, but this is perfect opportunity for them to flesh them out more and answer SOOOOO many questions. The only thing that saddens me is how this will affect the Storybook. It seems with every new release in this series I am set back and slightly discouraged to write knowing the canon could change at any moment, because it is really important to me I stay authentic to the canon because my work isn't supposed to be fan-fiction, it's supposed to be viewing the existing story in a different way. That's why I was lowkey hoping this game would have a new storyline, which it does, but things about the old one are still changing and I don't know what to do. Anyway, this isn't about me. I really like the idea of clearing up inconsistencies and filling in gaps in the old story with this game while introducing a new one. I appreciate Blundell not completely abandoning Ultimis and Victis, and I'm really curious where Classified goes. One issue I kind of have is that all of this didn't really appear in the timeline, since it is supposed to be the timeline from Primis Richtofen's perspective. Why he would find the events of Ascension important, but not Classified seems odd, and leads me to believe what happens in the map is very unimportant. I feel the same way about Blood of the Dead, since whatever crazy things happen in it, it must not be important enough for Richtofen to see it in the timeline. I'm kind of skeptical about continuing the old story unless it is the breaking of some kind of cycle, and thus Richtofen does not see the events in the version of the timeline we see.
  8. Hmm, very interesting, I can agree with most of this. My only question is your meaning behind immortality. By immortality, I'm sure you don't mean their body cannot be killed since we do see the Ultimis souls' bodies die by very normal means (Katana in the chest, shotgun blast, shutting off life support). Is what you are saying that the souls themselves are immortal, and though their bodies die, the souls are harnessed and brought to the house? That brings up another question of what happens after Revelations inside the house that resets the time loop and puts the souls back into bodies, that also causes Monty to forget what has happened. I really like this theory, it gives me some understanding why Primis was so important, as despite the fact that they do not have immortal souls, they drank the blood of Victis and Sal and Finn, and so they were able to preserve their existence despite Monty attempting to wipe out all other traces of them. Another question I have, however, is about this cipher from Zetsubou: "Edward, as you know it is imperative you and the group find the exact versions of yourselves that I have highlighted in each universe. Only by killing that version of yourself in that particular universe at that particular moment in time will we be successful once each of your other selves are killed across all the universes. Remember, we are only immune because we opened the portal in France but I am afraid this might not be permanent. I fear there is something M isn't telling me and that there is not much time left for us." Maxis mentions not only killing the specific bodies of their souls, but also killing them at the right particular time. What significance do you think there is to the time they are killed? Does it have something to do with what they experience at that time? I have always thought that these "immortal souls" are so special because they are the most pure versions of themselves. The Nikolai in Gorod appears to be the most broken and angry Nikolai we have ever seen caused by his drinking in grief. Perhaps only after his rampage in Stalingrad could he be at his purest to be collected? In Zetsbou, Takeo is killed at the peak of his suffering. I'm not so sure about Dempsey, and we never saw the version of Richtofen that was collected. Perhaps he was the most evil, and from what Primis Edward saw, that is what made him hate the version from the Giant so much. Also, another idea to add to this is that perhaps with each cycle the amount of diverging paths is expanding infinitely, even if there is still only one original immortal soul somewhere in it all. I hate to bring up the show, but Rick and Morty had a somewhat similar idea. Essentially due to their manipulation of time, by having an uncertain thought or action, they create an alternate version of their timeline, which continues to expand as different versions of themselves make different choices. Throughout the episodes it continues to expand exponentially, and the versions of the characters can "hear" the other versions of themselves like they are bleeding through. In the end, they manage to merge back to their original timeline. Here's an image from the episode: I think a similar idea could be going on here, that after Richtofen began meddling with the MTD and 115 the timeline began to split, and got to the point where we are now in-game. Perhaps Monty's goal with collecting the souls was to forcefully merge all of these souls back into one singular timeline and abandon all the others for the sake of simplifying things. It would make sense and Monty seems to show some disdain for Primis and other versions of them for mucking with time and making his job so much harder. His end game appears to be bringing everything into his own "perfect" world where he has total control. It would make sense that Primis Richtofen is against this, as he wants the divergent version of himself, and eventually the rest of Primis, to continue living. I've pondered this too, and after @Electric Jesus's theory, I think this must mean the version in the original timeline is the version with Pablo's immortal soul. Perhaps with no where to go and no one to collect a soul upon death, the immortal soul floats around in search of a new body before being reincarnated in the 1900's. "Accept your fate, begin anew." As Richtofen says. This may also be why Richtofen can continue bringing Primis back to life as seen in Die Rise: These are their souls, and Richtofen has the power to manipulate them and place them into identical bodies. The bodies they see in round infinity in Buried's easter egg are just another, non-immortal version of themselves. It would also explain the Mob of the Dead cycle: Whoever is in control of immortal souls can continue to place them in bodies and kill them as long as they desire.
  9. Depends what you're looking for. PS4 I will admit has a lot of great games coming out that xbox is lacking in, but I think Xbox has the advantage in that you can play many games backwards compatible with no added gimmick or cost. It's the only console you can play all of Zombies on (not speaking of PC). Another disadvantage of Xbox is the DLC deal where PS4 is getting DLC first. But as someone more interested in the story it doesn't bother me too much.
  10. I thought Takeo’s sickness was due to teleportation and something he ate, “That’s what you get for eating raw fish!” For someone with a weak stomach teleportation seems to cause nausea. In the Der Riese trailer Nikolai is sick presumably after teleportation and Richtofen calls it “A mere side effect.” As for the status of Zombie Chronicles, I think it is still Ultimis just with slight deviations to show this is a cycle, but things can change in each rotation. Differences like the perks, wunderfizz, guns, and gobblegums can be explained away as just gameplay conventions. But more subtle differences lead me to believe in something more. Things like Richtofen not having the space suit in Ascension, or the Shadowman. Not to mention the radios from Monty hinting that at one point they fought with Gersch, and that sometimes they were at Nacht and Verruckt, while other times not. So I think ZC is set in a different iteration of the cycle than the originals, but I do not think it is significant. I think the only reason it is this way was to explain inconsistencies, like new perks in BO3’s version, mule kick and cold war weapons in BO versions of WaW maps. I don’t think there is anything deeper. Just a neat bow to keep things contained and make anything possible.
  11. But the graphics! It’s great for a laugh. I hope one day DE goes on sale so I can see that in all it’s glory.

    The CoD Zombies Storybook

    Say hello to Chapter 9 of Book 1, Novus Ordo Seclorum: http://www.callofdutyzombies.com/story/book1ch9 This chapter is from the perspective of a little seen and little heard from character: Doctor Schuster. I really enjoyed fleshing out his personality some and showing Richtofen's downfall from an outside perspective. On that note, if you are a fan of my work and Richtofen's downfall, check out my thread on that subject here if you haven't already: http://www.callofdutyzombies.com/topic/185493-the-tragical-history-of-the-life-and-death-of-doctor-richtofen/?tab=comments#comment-1766150
  13. Hey, that's all right with me, nothing's really different either way. To be honest, I understand why you did it. I am also the type to just roll with someone's assumption just to avoid confrontation. People get my name wrong all the time because I'm very introverted and non-sociable and I just say nothing because I'm fine with it.
