Nope, I'm still alive. This is probably the first time i've returned to the community in about 2 years. I aplogize, when Black Ops 2 came out my life was a little busier than it was when Black Ops 1 zombie storyline was playing out, so I had more time for it. Unfortunately I didn't have as much time after that.
However, recently I saw some news that the next COD by Treyarch may have zombies, and may even further the original storyline, if possible.
It reminded me of how much fun I had researching, speculating, and collaborating with others on such a great game made by such smart, creative, and talented people.
Treyarch was able to inspire some deep thinking about a storyline in me, while I was playing a video game, which I can't say about many other games. Because Zombies was loosely based on some historical events it peaked my interest even more, because research and speculation to what "real life" things connect with the game could be at play.
I spent a lot of time coming up with theories and with the help of many others even got pretty close to predicting what would happen on Moon and in the rest of the story in Black Ops 2. With samantha controlling the zombies, the earth blowing up, and the towers being used to obtain ultimate control based on Group 935's work. http://www.callofdutyzombies.com/forum/index.php/topic/142061-%E2%96%91%E2%96%92%E2%96%93samanthas-existence-life-told-in-ee-songs-theory%E2%96%93%E2%96%92%E2%96%91/
Also, theorizing Samantha was narrating a story by playing a game in her room based on what we saw in Kino and where the story was going: http://www.callofdutyzombies.com/forum/index.php/topic/156756-letters-from-the-field-photos-videos-from-pre-origins/page-38#entry1461494
Anyway, I had a lot of fun doing it, and if Treyarch decides to continue the story, I will definitly do my best to stay up to date with it and contribute to the community as much as I can.
