Starting this Friday at 10 a.m. PST (or 10 p.m. JST) Black Ops will be having an all Nuketown weekend with double XP. For me, this is really nice because I have just gotten into CoD: Black Ops (I'm more of a Battlefield: BC 2 guy). Since I almost have my first prestige, I am hoping that I can complete another prestige during the double XP weekend. I also love the Nuketown map.
I love the feel of Nuketown. It feels a lot like walking through the neighborhood in Edward Scissorhands. The whole map is reminiscent of 50's/60's Americana. The pastel colors of the map. The clothes on the dummys. Even, the housing development sign outside of the houses looks like it fell from a scene from Mar's Attacks.
Another guy mentioned earlier that he hated Nuketown because of spawn camps, constant explosions, and some other gripes I forgot. But, those are the reasons I love that map. It is like playing old school Quake. I love throwing random grenades and hitting stuff. I like pasting the map with Nova Gas. And, depending on the balancing of the teams, the tug and pull of the B flag in domination is deadly fun.
Here is hoping that I can spend a ton of time playing Nuketown this weekend.
