Holy shit. Black Ops 2 has the worst ending to everything every in the history of everness. It ends, some credits roll and then...

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

and then an Avenged Sevenfold concert happens. With digital Avenged Sevenfold and the characters from the game rocking out with them. I hope everyone who put that scene together cried every second. It is the absolute WORST. General Petraeus, yes, him, is in the game as a character. He is dancing in this scene. I am weeping blood right now.

No, really: Tell me that was a joke.

IT'S ALL TRUE AND WAAAAAY WORSE THAN I MADE IT SOUND

post #56 of 118

My God. Even by the meagre amount I know about the story of these things, that just sounds cringeingely bad. It doesn't even pass as a knowing piss-take thanks to the stench of cross-promotion.

I can confirm this.  It is a thing that happens.  I spent the entire thing going "the fuck is going on?  Did someone drop acid in my drink?  Is this actually happening?  TELL ME WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN MASON"

 

 

It really must be seen to be believed.  As bad as you think it sounds, it's actually WORSE.

Oh no the comments on youtube. They actually like this. Now I am ashamed that I like video games.

post #61 of 118
You'd think a billion dollar franchise would want to avoid potentially viral, embarrassing shit like that. It's only a few steps above Fred Durst as a playable character in the Fight Club game.

Nobody should be shocked that this stupid bullshit happens in video games.

I am, at least in the premier franchise of video gaming, a billion dollar a year venture that depends on continued 'cool' cred and customer goodwill to keep rolling on as a franchise that puts Hollywood's receipts to shame.

This moment, and the David Patraeus stuff, could conceivably represent the moment when COD loses momentum and starts the long slow slide to Medal of Honor land. One franchise can't stay king forever. Some newcomer might now get the chance to have obscene production budgets thrown their way (we can hope).

Considering that large chunks of the gamer populace looked at Arkham City and said "WOW!! WHAT A FUCKIN' STORY!" I'm not inclined to think this BROcellent credits sequence is really going to make them think "God maybe this shit really is silly.."

 

 

But then I'm the most bitter gamer in the universe.

It's entirely likely that you're on point, and I'm just being far too hopeful when it comes to the prospect of change and upheaval in videogame landscape.

Shocked no. Especially considering the game involved. Embarrassed? Absolutely.

post #67 of 118

I've just lost my ability to be embarrassed about these things. I love games but I'm also pretty sure I wince at them non-stop.*

 

All these games are stupid bro games that involve dipshit politics and a rainbow colilition of minorities that you can gun down. The ending just sort of enforces that.

 

*It's a lot like comics!

Play the updated "Bionic Commando"...the plot twist in that game will make your head explode.
And seriously, the average game writing and narrative is wince worthy; God of War reduces all of greek mythology to a guy screaming all the time murdering anything that moves, also, daddy issues.

And...no.  This is pretty much the same as it ever was.  Call of Duty is still better than its competitors in the military FPS realm.  They are consistently executed to a greater degree of competency than what else is out there.  You may argue about the depth of story or its ridiculousness, but c'mon, you're going to stack up Warfighter's gameplay against this?  We might get franchise fatigue at some point, but its downfall is not because people are turned off by those types of appearances.  Medal of Honor land isn't simply being not the top dog, it's being a markedly inferior game.

 

Also, the target audience for this game will not care about the Petraeus appearance nor even the Oliver North one.  I guess we'll see what Infinity Ward Mk. 2 does and see if they're going to miss their shot at the king.

Also, Avenged Sevenfold is really not a very good band.  I preferred Linkin Park's songs for Medal of Honor over this.

Amusing to say the least.

 

 

 

 

Another year another Call of Duty I wont ever play.

Glad he pointed out how the game's feature creep is identical to Assassin's Creed : Revelations. Thanks for the link, I love Zero Punctuation.

The feature creep in Assassin's Creed: Revelations is a mere case of chaffed lips compared to the full blown leprosy that it turned into in Assassin's Creed 3.

What?  I think you have those reversed.  They didn't add much except the hunting and skinning bits and crafting and trading, and that kinda makes sense in context and is just an extension of previous systems in 2 and Bro.  Not like that bullshit tower defense and bomb making.

post #75 of 118

None of the extra gameplay elements in AssCreed 3 provided any improvement on the core experience. Or contextually. In Brotherhood Rome has fallen into disrepair and you're fixing it up as part of your war on the Borgias. What does your carpenter making more chairs mean regarding the central conflict?

post #76 of 118

Most of the stupid shit in Assassin's Creed is stupid.

 

Because it's a stupid series.

I've only played about an hour of the first game, but is Avenged Sevenfold's music prevalent throughout these two games?  Or is this completely shoehorned in?

And Noriega and Olliver North are in this game?  Sounds like a Reaganite's wet dream.

post #78 of 118

The politics with all the Call of Duty games is supremely weird and kind of fucked up.

post #79 of 118

I'm guessing the average COD player is as familiar with Petraeus as they are with vaginas.

Avenged Sevenfold has had a couple of songs used, starting from Black Ops I believe.

The game's Oliver North is voiced by Oliver North.  Manuel Noriega is not, unfortunately, voiced by Manuel Noriega.

Any game that paid Oliver North to be part of its voice cast can get fucked in the ear.  

Seriously, fuck this game.

post #82 of 118

It's still incredibly solid, and while the feature creep into Tower Defense isn't that great, some of the levels were actually fairly fun.  I think it maxed out though, and there's nothing like that to add.


They included some equipment loadout choices which is kinda cool, but ultimately unnecessary since you start out with the recommended loadout when you play.


Going back to Petraeus, if it wasn't for the scandal and resignation, would anybody really have cared?  I mean, they don't now, but still.  It seems more funny than controversial and that's only because of the scandal.

He is, however, voiced by Benito Martinez (Captain David Aceveda on The Shield).

I think the Petraeus appearance wouldn't have been too bad had the affair scandal not happened. I didn't mind it during the game. I didn't think it was a distraction or anything. I laughed that by 2025 he'd be the SCOTUS. I wouldn't think  it'd take him that long to reach that spot (again, if the affair scandal didn't happen). I quickly bailed on the post-credits music video thing. I had no idea what was happening and I couldn't stand it. So I missed the boat on him dancing.

Anyone interested in getting the CHUD clan of old back in action on PS3. I'm going to be playing under that clan tag again. Lets do it

I'd love to do the same thing except with XBOX users.  I feel like I'm the only one who plays this on multiplayer.

Created a clan for all of us on here. Hopefully there's more than just two of us playing this!

Didn't you and I get into some epic Civilization games back a couple years ago?  Wasn't that you?  Ill send out a friend request tonight.  I'm not part of any clan though, not that we can't make one.  I am unaware of a CHUD clan...at least one that originated from this website (other than the one DJ Dylan just created for the PS3).

It was me, but I was on a terrible connection at the time and was rare we could complete a game. I am MrTyres on Xbox Live and Steam and LOTRO and ... well most games.

 

There is a CHUD clan on Elite for Xbox, but like I said, I don't think it was us.

 

 

(Speaking of Civ 5, Anyone up for a game next week? :D)

post #95 of 118

Hopefully none of you guys get too offended by the occasional F-Bomb that I may drop while playing Black Ops.  I'll try my best to curb my potty mouth.

 

The only multiplayer game I've played with any consistency is Team Deathmatch but I'm open to other types.  I've actually gotten pretty surgical with the first bolt-action Sniper Rifle, although I would say I'm pretty decent with all the weps.
