So, this is where we get all the info together for the upcoming game.  Haven't heard anything in awhile (worth mentioning), because I believe they're waiting for E3 before they drop the next big one.  Here's what I know (feel free to contribute):

Zombies:




Campaign/Multiplayer:

I PRAY that they won't do that stupid elite membership thing with the new BO.....I was so pissed-the-fuck-off when I downloaded the free maps for PVP and it was nothing but "elites" camping, who've had the maps for months and talking mad shit. Fuck...that.  They can eat their DLC and any money they hoped to make off me.

It depends on how successful that elite thing was in the last game really it all bout the money nowadays with game devs.

Here's the deal about the Elite system:

It pays the people that made the game to make it better.  Sure, Map Packs pay for themselves in the long run (from the creators' viewpoint)--but in order to release these brand-spankin'-new gamemodes like Infected, Drop Zone, and FFA Gunplay, someone needs to get paid.  And that renewable subscription of $50 a year pays for this to be possible.

How many units of MW3 flew off the shelves day one? 10 Million copies. Now, let's imagine that a quarter of those people bought the Elite service/the package that came with the Elite service.  2.5 Million multiplied by $50 is a fuckton.

And finally we're hitting my favorite reason: When MW2 came out, the creators were quoted saying something along the lines of, "The UMP is too powerful, and we wished, when the game came out, that we could have some sort of backdoor to the code in the game to fix that." The Elite service pays for them to be able to update the game through Microsoft's update system. You know when you power it up and Microsoft pops up and says downlod this or you can't play and it's like, 2MB of data? They're modifying the guns and/or maps.

So there.  The reason for Elite.

Just saw this video uploaded yesterday, I think, and it's a good example of what I just said:

Well said...I agree.. I haven't downloaded the new maps and nor will I...I spent way to much money on BOPS...I did download the free ones for 3v3 matches and so on...

Fuck elite...I don't care what the reason is...it's still a cop-out answer in my book.  I'll buy the basic game and play the hel out of it, but not the DLCs if these other douchebags get a month or more before I do....THEY can give their money to the designers.  

As with any industry, there are cycles...this may be the way for FPS now...but eventually it'll swing back around to old fucks like myself.  I just have to outlast you young punks.

The E3 trailer for BO2 looks awesome.....the sniper rifle seems a bit out of Crisis 2 or Halo 4......speaking of Halo 4, that trailer from E3 looks hot as well.

Yeah no doubt, it's definitely worse than playing basically the same reskinned FPS for the last 5 years in a row.

The sniper rifle reminds of the one with xray vision and could shoot through walls in perfect dark.

Ok, so I kind of dropped off on the whole BlOps2 thing because it looked boring for awhile.  So I planned on Redboxing it to just play the campaign.  But then I saw this:

Finished it.  $30-40 game if you're not into CoD, but an immediate buy if you are.

Period.

I have not finished the campaign yet which is weird for me...usually I play the campaign all the way through (something I stopped doing with BF3 for some reason....maybe so I can go back and finish it up later).  I have been mixing campaign with multi with zombies.

The FIRST multi I played I came in thiiird.  The player tracking scope feature makes it SUPER easy IMO.

Made level 33 last night with just me and my nephew on zombies in the town on survival.

There is a TON in zombies IMO.  I have no idea where everything is yet...I am not even sure if I have been to all the different areas.

Green Run is actually a real life event.  Check it out.

Also some of the new perks I had no idea what they were:

Tombstone-places a tombstone where you go down and drops your weapon there for pick up after you respawn.
Mule Kick- allows 3 weapons

Those were really the only 2 I didn't know about, but I never played the moon map either and got some education on that from my nephew while we were playing yesterday.
