Mob of the Dead - Trailer
This trailer for the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 expansion is awesome. It actually looks a lot like a Left 4 Dead level, complete with an escape airplane at the end. They’ve even brought on an amazing voice cast, Ray Liotta Joe Pantoliano, Michael Madsen, and Chazz Palminteri.
I would play this as an entire game and have absolutely no regrets.
I did not want to play Blak Ops 2 until now. Now I want it really badly.
This DLC comes out April 16th.
Call of Duty Elite
Activision wants more than 60 dollars a year from you; they want a monthly subscription fee on top of that. Unfortunately they haven’t told you how much they want just yet. The Wall Street Journal broke the news last night and the above video is a more in depth look at what the service Elite service has to offer.
Elite is not paying for multiplayer. Anyone who purchases the game will be able to do that just like before with XBL or PSN. Elite seems to provide a deeper experience. It provides an online community for all things Call of Duty. You can create groups to play with, clans to compete with, sign up for tournaments and see tons of statistics to help improve your play.
Overall I think Call of Duty Elite is an interesting service. It’s nice to see a publisher, unsatisfied with the offerings on the console, going out of their way to make their game better… even if the motives are purely revenue driven.
Whoops. I tried to read the BBC’s videogame wrap up for 2008 but I didn’t get past the first sentence.
Um, guys. Call of Duty World at War came out this year. Modern Warfare 2 doesn’t come out until next year. But look at it this way, you can start the 2009 review with the same phrase. It’s like 0.5% of the work is already done.
