If you thought Mt. Dew/Doritos Halo 4 was bad... (spoilers)

Starts at 42m15s... spoilers I guess (although not really)

Thanks for playing Black Ops 2! Make sure to go out and buy Avenging Sevenfold's latest album today!

granted, this is taken out of context so maybe it makes more sense if you play through the entire game, but from this point it looks kind of disgusting

All right Bro cant wait to play this on 3D like the adds tell me to do because its almost like Im there, plus I get some sweet New Metal hardcore bro yeaaaaaah!.

Ok sarcasm aside if this is a joke I can accept that but then again this is Activision so I don't think they are this self aware.

Well in that Black Ops zombie mode DLC they had Sarah Michelle Gellar, George Romero and some other folks, but that was in the context of a zombie movie shoot... does this have to do with zombies?

"A trojan horse. Odysseus."

Ladies and gentleman: games writing.

This video is all in all unwatchable. 2 out of 7 stars for the first six minutes, didn't see the rest.

Just watch...it's fucking ridiculous. Not in a good way. Just a really dumb way.

Guitar Hero: Black Ops.

You know what? This makes the whole Medal of Honor and Linkin Park thing look like nothing.

And that's truly sad.

Wow, that was pretty stupid, and I mean the dialogue, not even the very end.

this reminds me of Bayonettas ending.

who the fuck is Avenging Sevenfold?

Meh...dont see anything too wrong with this, most movie credits have a song going over them. This they just decided to have a funny music video. even if the music is meh.

No. They're equally terrible. But I admire their determination in catering to this imaginary idiot.

I don't really get why people get so worked up over things like this. I really could care less whether or not they advertise things in games. How does it change anything if they have a band in the game? Especially after the credits.

Why is it disgusting?

So I just skipped to the 42 minute mark and it seems like old man Mason is in a rock band....wtf?

This is post credits right? If so that's just funny, like that rap song from that other CoD game.

@Hunkulese: Because none of them are wearing guitar straps!

And you're comparing this to the doritos/halo 4/mountain dew picture how exactly?

That picture had stuff to do with games 'journalism.' I don't see how Black Ops 2's joke ending scene has any link or similarities at all. -_-

I really don't get it. How am I supposed to feel about this?

#20 Edited by I_smell (3924 posts) -

That was really silly.
 
But if you thought Call of Duty Black Ops 2 was like an example of true artistic integrity and uncompromised authorship UNTIL NOW, then maybe rethink that stance. It's a summer blockbuster, it'd be a different story if this was... ... ... ....I can't think of a game that's above doing this...

#21 Posted by JordanaRama (190 posts) -

I don't... what?

This doesn't affect me at all, but, I just don't understand why this is a thing. It just sort of confuses me.

#22 Edited by I_smell (3924 posts) -

I'm kind of relieved that people aren't taking Call of Duty all that seriously.
 
To be honest my main reaction is "How does the biggest game on the planet have such stiff, puppet-lookin animation". It looks like a Tony Hawks Underground cutscene.

Oh man now i'm gonna be really pissed if the World doesn't end.

#24 Posted by BatOtaku13 (143 posts) -

this single player just really baffles me...especially the credits. how do you follow a morose spanish ballad with brodude dubstep?!

@GERALTITUDE: AC3 loves Odysseus as well! Ghost character of the year?

@Fredchuckdave: My mind is blown. How is Ghost Character not a standard award!? Hmmmmmmmmmm. Ideas-a-brew.

I can think of several, you're clearly playing some very bad games.

@Ramone: Yeah I just watched the Halo 4 quick look, so I've just got giant goofy action romps in my head. I guess AN UNFINISHED SWAN wouldn't have a band attached to it, but that would never come up anyway.  In the world of Assassin's Creed or Mass Effect or Gears, Uncharted or whatever, I can picture it.
 
...Y'know what, I just beat Xcom: They wouldn't do something like that in a million years. There ya go.
