Call of Duty: Black Ops
 
Any thoughts? The newest trailer just came out.

MT2008 05-19-2010 04:04 PM

Saw the trailer on HD TV at a bar last night. It looked exciting, but I don't play games anymore. That being said, what's up with that weird-ass AR carbine?

I KNOW. I was expecting at WORSE an M733 or the sporter like in Platoon because those were shown in movies, but...the hell is this thing? It LOOKS kinda like a flat top 733 with a weird flash hider that is half way like the one a 177 would have. No brass deflector, no forward assist. A scene had it with a weird handguard. I got this all screen cap.

The flattop equivalent of the M733 is the M933 (which I believe Colt used to call the "M4 Commando"). The flash hider appears to be Vortex-style. Neither flattop receivers nor Vortex flash hiders were around in Vietnam.

Whatever. Game developers aren't always gun experts. Or, their education in guns comes entirely from the Internet or what they've seen in other games and movies. I should know; I used to collaborate on mods with those kinds of people.

Please tell me that this game isn't set during the Vietnam War. COD: Vietnam is supposed to be like COD 2 (serious mood, no fucktardedness like MW2)

Nevermind, I looked at the page- there is no way in hell it's set during 'Nam

Excalibur 05-19-2010 09:36 PM

I heard it takes place throughout the Cold War, so we'd be in Nam, Cuba, Russia and a special mission to play SAS in the Iranian embassy siege.

If it's anything like MW2, I will personally go to the infinity ward headquarters and headbutt someone so hard that it knocks them unconscious

isnt this one treyarch?

Excalibur 05-20-2010 12:31 AM

Yes it so, so let's hope Treyarch does a better job with this project unlike World at War, where they just straight up "borrowed" the COD4 engine and used it to make cool "fire effects". I wonder how much money are they going to waste on famous actors to voice like WaW had Gary Oldman and Kiefer Sutherland
