  1. Could you elaborate on that? I kinda dipped during Black Ops 4 so I might’ve missed a lot.
  2. I never put too much stock in that quote because I’m fairly sure it’s just Treyarch nodding at the audience with an internet meme “Pics or it didn’t happen”. It’s the exact same as the Ascension Facebook quote in my eyes.
  3. Let’s take Primis Richtofen for instance, because he happens to be my favourite. Like he says, he “has been trying so very hard to do the right thing.” From what we see of the multiverse, most Richtofen’s happen to be conniving and evil, but Primis Richtofen is an exception to this, “I was the nicest one.” He wants to find his redemption and put the universe right. He also wants to earn his comrades trust, but throughout the BOIII DLC season they have an uneasy alliance. He keeps info from the rest of the crew, but only because he feels it is for the best even it may not be (Not telling Takeo about the Emperor’s betrayal of him). When the rest of Primis kill their alternate selves, they become more understanding of Richtofen, as he has helped them gain some sense of closure or peace. They start to see that Richtofen does genuinely want to help purge the multiverse of the Apothicons and the undead, so he gains their trust (perhaps with the exception of Nikolai). They may have even gotten off lightly compared to Richtofen, as we have hints in Alpha Omega that he had to kill a child version of himself in order to capture his soul. But ultimately, Richtofen has a greater desire than saving the universe, and that’s preserving himself. He has an innate fear of death, and so help perpetuates the cycle we’ve seen throughout the course of Black Ops III. Yes, Revelations ends with Primis finally purging the Apothicons from Monty’s perfect world, and yes when they are transported back in time, Primis do win the Great War. But it’s not a permanent solution. Group 935 will still discover Pablo Marinus’ journal, they’ll still unearth the Templar undead contained within a French excavation site, and the universe will still shatter into pieces causing the destruction of multiple worlds and the suffering of countless innocents. Richtofen is happy to keep this cycle going even if it is the equivalent of putting a band aid on the situation because it means he gets to live. Ultimately he’s selfish, but in a very different way to his counterparts. He doesn’t want global domination, he just has a very simple and human fear of death. Now, I don’t think the other three are as layered as Richtofen, but they still received a lot of development especially in comparison to their Ultimis selves. Nikolai has deluded himself into believing he has had multiple marriages, after the devastating death of his own wife. Takeo desires nothing more than to preserve his honour and dedicate himself to his nation and Emperor, even though he is completely blinded by the Emperor’s disdain for him. Dempsey is a lot more sophisticated and mature, and is willing go to the end of the line to complete his mission and his orders. So as you might be able to tell I like these characters a lot. ? I can understand that some people prefer Ultimis more though. They were definitely more wacky and in line with the over the top humour of Black Ops 1, so I can get that. I will say I’m a fan of their development in Black Ops 4 though, even if it feels a bit inconsistent with how they acted in Black Ops 1. (Dempsey acting mildly annoyed that all their work in the Moon Egg only resulted in destroying the world vs. incoherently rambling and being distressed about these events in Classified) I guess you can write it off as the brain washing easing off on them, as they start to get their memories back, but eh it still feels a bit jarring IMO. So yeah, I hope I’ve explained adequately exactly why Primis resonate with me as well as they do. I’d love to hear your own thoughts on them as characters.
  4. I always assumed that after they “seemingly disappeared from history”, they would return back to 1918 France where the cycle can begin again and again.
  5. Off-topic, but where did this info come from? I seem to vaguely remember a PlaytheGame video talking about this years ago, but is that the only source for this info? Interesting stuff regardless. As for the main topic of this thread, I do think Aether is definitely, for real, no takesy backsies, done with DLC 4, at least in its current iteration. Am I a fool for taking Treyarch at their word once again on this story finally ending? Probably. But I do find the Zombies Writing team quote interesting, since it seems to line up pretty heavily with the current rumours of Aether getting a fully fledged reboot in Treyarch’s next game. And in regards to receiving more one-off maps in the future that fill in some story gaps, I wouldn’t be a fan. A map every now and then like Classified is cool, but I’d much rather the main story progress instead of having multiple ‘side-quels’ for a story that has already finished, but maybe that’s just me.
  6. Black Ops III. I would’ve said Black Ops II, but I’m such a big fan of the character development that Primis received and the journey they went on, that I would’ve rathered the story end at 3.
  7. Huh, TIL. Can understand why it was removed, if only for the reason it doesn’t really fit with Zombies.
  8. 1. The One - Still holds up IMO after all these years. A classic as Pizza said. 2. Nightmare - When was Imma Try It Out used in Zombies? 3. Remember Forever - Completely biased on my part, as I’ve only heard Stormbound maybe once or twice. 4. Shepherd of Fire - Works great in the Origins intro and is probably my favourite A7X song in Zombies. 5. Dead Ended because Carrion is straight trash.
  9. So, Pernell is the Avogadro. Imagine telling someone that in 2012.

  10. Whoops, my bad! I personally would really like to see Survival return. I think if they bring it back under the right conditions, with a lot more depth it could have the potential to rival Treyarch Zombies for its fun factor.
  11. You’re really putting me on the spot here Lenne haha. Might as well be picking my favourite children. I’ve been playing a lot of COD 4 Remastered recently, and damn I really miss the simplicity of those earlier games. You’re definitely right about MW2 being over the top, but the campaign has some of my favourite moments from any video game. As an overall product, I think COD 4 is the clear winner for me. (But I do still have very fond memories of survival in MW3.)
  12. Man, it’s weird coming back to forums sometimes. I remember when I first joined this site, and there were frequent posters like Nightmare Voyager, and Stop Mocking Me, Deathbringerzen, and Slade just to name a few. And then they disappear without a trace and it just feels odd, even though I’m guilty of this myself. Sorry for the ramble, just felt like writing this ?

      NV and Mocking went away from the forums, DBZ is done with CoD zombies, but where Slade is gone and why he left I do not know. He also hasn't even been online via Steam for almost 2 years now. Which is really, really strange. And truth be told there is not a week that goes by where I don't think of him, cause he is my favorite chocolate dutch/russian hybrid ever. ; ( I just hope he moved on from gaming in general and that nothing bad happend to him.

      Thank you for checking in, Spider. ❤️

      That sucks to hear. When friends disappear it’s always tough, no matter how you know them. If I had to guess I would say you’re probably right that he simply lost interest in gaming. Still if everything is alright, then it’s unfortunate that he doesn’t check in every now and then. ?

      The Meh

      I still often talk with NV, and... if we're going to play it fair, I think all it really boiled down to was having issues with certain staff. He just kind of fell out of caring for this place the same way. Frankly, I didn't blame him for that. We kind of had our issues around that time too, but I mean, we made amends since then. Glad to say he's still doing great things.

       

      Mocking had a whole thread that someone tore him down on and went to state being done with CoDz on that as well. I've tried to contact the guy for ages, I really have. (Same with TheNathanNS.)

       

      It's just really sad, y'know? This forum isn't really what it used to be, and it used to be amazing... well, I mean, it still is, but it's definitely changed. There's no question about that. All the greats have moved ahead to bigger, better things.

  13. Man, I’ve been on some Modern Warfare nostalgia binge in my brain since this game has been announced. Lack of Zombies is actually a good thing for a once, I think a break will do the community well. It’ll definitely be cool to see Price, and Soap and Ghost (I’m assuming they’ll be a part of the game too) But man, getting used to Price’s new voice actor is gonna be tough. ?
  14. I feel like there’s a lot of irony around the fact that it seems not even Treyarch/Activision care about the new map coming tomorrow.

      We got some nice artwork though. But I get where you are coming from something small like 2 xp should have been another present to actually go along with the birthday.

    IX highest round

    I don’t know if it’s the Zombies themselves or just the sheer number of them + other enemies. Either way, by like round 15-ish I feel it does start to get very hectic, which IMO is a bit too early for things to start going balls to the walls crazy in a Zombies match.
