For the past few months, there have been rumors circulating the web with talks of Black Ops 2. At first it wasn’t quite confirmed, but listings on different sites such as Amazon showed us that Black Ops 2 was going to be available for purchase in the near future. Well now it’s official. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will officially be released November 13, 2012.
I missed the official premiere of the teaser, but luckily everything that airs on television quickly makes it way to the Web. So after waiting a few hours, I finally had the chance to check out the teaser. I probably should have played MW3 for a little bit, but instead I was on Mass Effect 3 tearing it up and just having fun playing online with my buddy. So after putting the controller down, I watched the Black Ops 2 teaser and I was intrigued by what I saw. Retro combat, futuristic battle.
So it looks interesting. I haven’t quite formulated this in-depth geeky opinion on it, but I’m not too hard to please when it comes to fps. I love Call of Duty. I don’t hate the franchise, and I’m not one of them naysayers who has to be so negative about everything. I mean, yes, COD isn’t perfect, but no franchise ever is. Yet those minor imperfections are something that you come to love, and that’s how it is with COD. Sometimes I hate the fact that you could literally be shooting someone and you know you killed them, but then you die, but eh it’s not perfect. But it just compels you to try harder and make sure you get those kills you deserve.
So I’m not quite sure what to totally expect in Black Ops 2, but my fingers are crossed with hopes of them bringing back zombies. Spec Ops is cool, but I miss playing zombies. So I’m truly hoping that the folks over at COD will take what fans like into consideration and bring back some raging zombies.
What else do you guys hope to see in Black Ops 2? Think it will be a hit or miss?
Feel free to share your comments. And if you want to play Mw3 with me (or Mass Effect 3), then add me on PS3. PSN ID: funk25

Let’s have some gamer talk. In the world of video games you’ve got stone-age, bronze-age, iron-age, and pwn-age. Pure pwnage (pure ownage) is the ultimate level for any gamer. It’s the point in a round of Call of Duty or Gears of War when you are just totally serving up some pure pwnage.
It can take some time to concentrate and be a lethal master of pwnage, but it’s not impossible. On a good day, with lots of concentration, I’m able to get a decent kill count of up to 27 on Black Ops. Not the best, but not the worst; I’m average.
I’m a gamer by nature and love playing games, but some people are Call of Duty connoisseurs. They live, breath, eat, and dream about COD. I’ve never been the one to talk trash and dish out major pwnage (unless you really piss me off,) but some people are all about pure pwnage. Some people are all about relying on the ghost perks, airstrikes, nepalm strikes, and stabbing folks in the back (I’m guilty, I love doing that on Black Ops!)
I’ve heard the trash talking on the mic (mine is muted, but sometimes its fun to listen to others banter) and I often wonder if a serious gamer actually talked like that 24/7. Well my wonder has been put to rest. I ran across the web series “Online Gamer” and began cracking up. The show is produced by Reckless Tortuga and it follows the life of an hardcore gamer. He lives and breathes on Modern Warfare 2, 360, ghost perks, airstrikes, and pure pwnage. The show came out a looooong time ago, but I’ve met some other gamers who have never heard of it.
“Online Gamer” is one of those shows you can’t help to watch, it’s off the wall rude and hilarious. The guy is a total jerk and can’t seem to separate reality from Call of Duty, it’s a mess! I’ve watch a lot of the episodes so far and I must say the release of Black Ops is by far the funniest. The dude can’t control his desire to play Black Ops and he works at a game store where the shipment just arrived. He is such a jerk to everyone who pre-ordered and would literally make people buy it on 360, even if they request the Ps3 copy. He’s a class A jerk, but it’s so true to how some of those hardcore gamers are.
Check out the first two episodes of “Online Gamer” and be sure to take some time to catch up. If you’re a gamer like me, then you’ll find yourself relating to some of the issues he faces. The ring of death on his 360 is probably one thing that many people can relate to. My 360 never had the ring of death, but I know some people who had it and they were vehemently pissed off. They had to play their Ps3 and go on a pure pwnage rampage. Sometimes in life, you just got to pwn folks…it’s the gamers code.
