You read that right. Revolver just posted up that Avenged Sevenfold is making a digitized appearance in Black Ops 2 to perform their new song "Carry On". The video will play after the credits of the campaign (from what I'm to understand). It features a couple of the characters from Black Ops 2 in a small "comedy" skit beforehand, then busts into a performance.
Personally, I think this is dumb...dumb...dumb. I'm no fan of A7X (not since Waking The Fallen at least), and this is just...dumb. It was cool for me when Blind Guardian showed up with a digitized performance of "Sacred Worlds" in Sacred 2...but this... What makes it bad is that ACTIVISION MADE GUITAR HERO! You would THINK that someone would've been able to do a much better performance capture, especially if you've ever seen the excellent performance capture that they did in Guitar Hero: Metallica. *sigh*
Anyways, here's the video...if that's your thing. What do you guys think? Should bands stop being in games like this? Is it something you like or not?
*EDIT* I would like to point out that I am hyped as fuck for Black Ops 2. I am not a Call of Duty hater. I just think stuff like this is...dumb.
