  1. Well, I mean, I thought it was going to go without saying that Spec Ops wouldn't hold a candle to zombies. Like, I was pretty sure IW wasn't even going to try to compete, they were just going to do their own thing. That said, Modern Warfare 3 is a great game, but all it takes is a good campaign to make a great game. Black Ops was what I would call a PERFECT game. Let's compare. Black Ops campaign = good. MW3 campaign = good. Zombie mode = I wish the levels would actually, you know, end, but zombies is awesome. Survival mode = Kinda fun. Kinda meh. It's all right. No plot though. Mission mode = Not exactly on par with zombies, but it's fun. Black Ops multiplayer = Combat training. I love botmatches (except in older Battlefield games where they were poor excuses for a replacement for a good solid campaign.) I don't have to play against griefers and children. But for a lack of any apparent effect on the overall story, each map almost feels like a level from the campaign, what with all the easter eggs scattered about giving a guy a reason to explore each and every map. MW3 multiplayer = No combat training? Fuuuuuuuck that shit. I've heard way too many horror stories about online play. Like hackers banning innocent players on BF3? Even if survival mode is harder to explore, at least I'm not taking any unnecessary risks. Survival mode = Uh...yeah. Combat training was better. Everyone's trying to kill ME instead of each other, makes it a LOT harder to explore the maps, which is pretty much the only reason I poke around in parts of the game that don't seem to have anything to do with the story. Mission mode =
  2. Aw man, that was awesome. It's like, when you watch a DVD, and then under special features, you have deleted scenes and behind the scenes. And behind the scenes features are usually boring and crap. But this is like a behind the scenes feature that deliberately doesn't take itself seriously, and as a result, is only flat-out awesome because of it. That was almost a live-action trailer. And THOSE are the BEST. Like the ones they did for Halo, Medal of Honor 2010, Ghost Recon, and FEAR 3. Whenever Treyarch has the wheel, inch by inch, Call of Duty just gets better all the time. Infinity Ward might do a leap and a bound, but Treyarch REALLY follows through with their DLC and other such support like trailers for their DLC.
  3. "This video is private?" No. F*ck you. Not you, Hydrorez, you done well. Yer all right. But no. "Private?" On Youtube? You don't DO that!! Besides, I HAVE a youtube account! I'm a CODZ regular! What the Hell more do you want? LEMME IN ALREADY! This concludes my angry rant.
  4. I think we should. That's the one thing I've always been confused about. The timeline. I know time travel is confusing, but still, we should at least have dates so that we could figure it out. I say it goes something like this. 1945 -Nacht Der Untoten (ipod, original, Black Ops remake, DLC remake) -Verruckt (ipod, original, Black Ops remake, DLC remake) -Shi No Numa (ipod, original, Black Ops remake, DLC remake) -Der Reise (ipod, original, Black Ops remake, DLC remake) 1957 (no evidence for the date-ask and I'll tell you the joke) -Shangri-La 1963 -Five and Ascension 1975 -Kino Der Toten 2011 -Call of the Dead It's like...there's more than one timeline. There's the one the world goes through, but our heroes just keep jumping around all over the place and I have NO idea whatsoever when Moon takes place.
  5. All right, man, it ain't MY problem. But whether he's smart enough to tell the difference between an insult and a compliment notwithstanding, he DID come up with a good idea. The newspapers. Think about it. Black Ops took place during the Cold War. Everything was so heavily redacted, covered in black ink. Concealed. That's what made the time period unique, in that every important thing was conducted in such secrecy that the information didn't get out, and when it did, it was so filtered. Like when carbon got that briefcase. Honestly, I think a fistful of half-redacted documents like the one he got SHOULD have been stuffed into the Prestige edition box. But these days information is everywhere. Something happens and it's in the papers the very next day. The average citizen has his own spy camera built into his own communication device. Cell phones, social networking, CNN and the internet have made information flow at an unrestricted pace. If you've ever played the first Splinter Cell game, you'll be familiar with the concept of "Information Warfare." Grand Theft Auto 4 had its very own internet. So yeah. I think that including some newspapers and a fake issue of Time Magazine would be the perfect thing. It would not only set Modern Warfare apart from Black Ops, but also give it an atmosphere of its own.
  6. If you ask me, I wouldn't give PTG the time of day. I don't recommend it. I mean I know we should be getting past all this, but I say the best way to do that is to just leave it be. He made a whole video just complaining about Ascension, I posted on it, I didn't call him names or act untoward in any such manner, didn't say anything about codz or that I posted here, I just made a few statements regarding a few points he brought up, statements of facts, I left my opinions completely out of it, more of a "hope this helps" kind of thing, and he blocked me whilst laughing about it like the cheeky English douchebag that he is. It's one thing not to pick on these people. Anybody too mature to still be in grade school can do that. But I'm telling you, don't try to contact them. What's said is said, what's done is done, and we should move on, but that doesn't mean we should try to build any bridges with these people, the least of which would be PTG. We know what they're like and it's just playing with fire. Carbon is right. We should move on, not talk about the whole mess anywhere else but here, direct people who bring it up elsewhere to here so we can cut down on the spammier threads, and not even fight with these people. But I'm gonna say the same thing the minigun-toting Russian Spetsnaz commando said to the sociopathic serial killer with the medical license about the creepy psycho redneck prison inmate in the movie Predators (and no I do NOT remember their names, obviously): "You should stay away from that guy."
  7. What the Hell are you talking about? 2 weeks? No...we've had it for NINE MONTHS longer than everyone else. And now, free or not, everyone gets Moon. And the people with standard still have to pay for it. Exclusivity still applies but why do you even care?
  8. You know...I USED to hate people who would say Modern Warfare 2 was a shitty game because the multiplayer sucked whether I agreed on that point or not. And, well, I still do. But after having played Black Ops, you know what I hate about not just Modern Warfare 2 but every Call of Duty game that has ever come before? No Combat Training. But now thanks to it I can blast away mindlessly on Black Ops without you bozos whining to your mom about your motherfucking chocolate milk and getting a beatdown over the mic because your dad told you to take the trash out.
  9. Thank you, carbon. You've been such a great community guy since day one, and you've taken a great deal of responsibility off of everyone's shoulders with this thread. Before whenever somebody would bring up Henry, playthegameco, Twodown, Salad Man, or any of the hoaxes they would run the risk of being shouted down on account of the mass annoyance these hoaxes caused, and not knowing something was never an excuse for the amount of backlash they got in return for asking simple questions about what were apparently important issues. Of course, they needed to know just what sort of resentment these hoaxers were causing, but still. Now, whenever somebody posts a "why do you hate these guys so much" thread, we can just say "we don't hate them, we just don't like them or the way they do things, we don't agree with them, we don't believe they deserve all the attention for what they did, and after all this time, now that tensions and tempers have cooled and we can take a rational look at the issue, we can direct you to this thread posted by the man in charge and hope you don't get offended when we lock your thread." Because everyone just wants to move on, and now it seems just a little bit easier.
  10. All right, look, I'm sorry I was such a seven-and-a-quarter-inch dick. To each his own and to be fair, this IS a site for Zombies above all. But we wouldn't have Zombies without Call of Duty. For that matter, we wouldn't have Call of Duty without Medal of Honor, a sister series to Battlefield in that it's owned by EA. And despite Battlefield's history of using botmatches as a shitty substitute for a campaign, unlike the way Black Ops uses it as an excellent substitute for shitty multiplayer with just any creep on the other end, I've really liked their Bad Company games and BF3 looks like the shit. I mean, it just looks flat out awesome with shiny graphics as opposed to Call of Duty's shiny action. But admit it. Your first post came off selfish as shit. You had the special edition game for free. I bought Prestige for the RC car but if I had just got the Hardened for the WAW zombie levels, I still wouldn't complain because I'm getting Moon and an update to the maps for free. If you had the standard edition you'd have a leg to stand on. A lot of people didn't like paying for multiplayer maps when they only wanted the zombie level. I didn't mind whatsoever as the botmatch combat training made me come around. You could complain that you wanted multiplayer maps but it just seems like you're complaining about having gotten an exclusive that's no longer exclusive. Even if the exclusive part was a limited time only thing. You still got to play it early. So dude, PLEASE clarify your argument because NOBODY can be that selfish...unless maybe you're related to a Republican politician.
  11. Oh, well if it's just PC then no big deal. I miss mods and cutting edge graphics, but a combination of having to constantly upgrade to meet system requirements, long installation, having to put the whole game on your hard drive, unexpected, unexplained and uncorrectable errors, fascist DRM, a control scheme that doesn't lend itself at all to first person shooters or any other game that requires reflexes, and the fact that any other program that opens itself up can just totally come in fuck up your whole unsaved game at any time like a cat jumping up on your table while you're building a house of cards ensure that PC gaming has been dead to me for the last seven years anyway. The REAL crime is when good PC games like NecroVisioN and StarCraft 2 don't get console ports. If Wolfenstein and Halo Wars can do it, NecroVisioN and StarCraft 2 can too. Don't get me wrong...I WISH I had a modern PC, but...well, maybe I can afford one IF I get that sweet government job. But you gotta admit, this guy has done nothing but cry about getting free stuff to go with the free stuff he already has. Oh, hey...you're that guy who did all the quotes and put 'em on youtube. Hey, I really like your work, man - you've really simplified the life of every obsessive compulsive nerd like myself on here.
  12. That post was a compliment. A compliment I now regret. You are a fucking moron. You know what? Get off the internet, take your computer out back, set it on fire, and never use one again.
  13. Eh. MW3 will be trash. You know what? Get. The fuck. Out. You're not a Call of Duty fan. You've shit on everything in the foreseeable future from both core developers. I don't care if Activision is milking the cow because that's just what greedy publishers do. You got a special edition game for free, and because Treyarch is giving more free shit to anybody with a special edition, you're shitting on them? Go play Battlefield. Do some community service. Get cancer. Kill yourself. Hell, I don't care what you do. But every time you open your mouth you turn our beloved forum into a sewer. I'm ashamed for you. If I was a moderator, you'd be long-since banned. Complaining is one thing. I hate the way zombie levels are structured. Left 4 Dead does it better. But I don't accuse Treyarch of screwing us. So again, just to reiterate...
  14. I had this theory that since the whole theater was apparently commandeered by the Nazis for Group 935's highly-classified experiments that they would have set up some kind of security perimeter to keep out civilians. Then when the Russians attacked there was a zombie uprising, but while the scientists were probably able to get out, the zombies, being stupid zombies, were probably unable to get past the perimeter. The scientists, surrendering to the Russians and probably going on to be part of the Ascension Group...or, you know, killed...would have either told them about the zombies, or, figuring that no one would believe them, told them that there was some kind of gas or chemical leak, insisted that the Russians maintain, possibly even reinforce the perimeter, and left the zombies to rot around gathering dust for 30 years. Then out of the blue four guys teleport in from a previous zombie shootout at Der Reise. Richtofen does some stuff and records a log entry, then the zombies wake up and attack.
