What's up duders?
I just pulled the wrap off of my Call of Duty Black Ops HE and tore into the Multiplayer because I just wanted to shoot some fools. I'm not an advocate of a new Call of Duty being cranked out every year but I do keep buying them. I guess I'm part of the problem. Kinda? I only buy them for the Campaigns. I feel like they're completely bombastic and insane and that's the reason I love them. I expect BLOPS2 to be just as insane as the first one was. I find the Modern Warfare grouping of COD feels more militaristic and tactical in nature and I love them for that aspect but BLOPS is more of a twisted-weave of a cool stories all intertwined by some psycho plot. Love it.
As I said before, I don't play COD for the Multiplayer but I've been hearing that the focus of BLOPS2 is more of a livestream/MLG/hardcore focus and I wanted to experience that before I hopped into the campaign. My first game I went 18-2 and felt pretty damn good considering I haven't played online for at least 6 months. I'm really enthusiastic about this installment but I haven't tore into the campaign (will be doing that right after this post)
What are your thoughts/experiences with the COD franchise and where it could be headed in the future?
Finally, Hitman: Absolution. Totally stoked. But worried. I've beaten all the Hitman games (including Contracts) and definitely enjoy the over-arcing story that ties them all together. I am worried about Absolution because it's been made quite clear that Diana is killed off in the first Prologue Mission by 47. I think Diana is one of the cornerstones of this entire franchise. We were all excited when she saved us at the end of BloodMoney and at the end of Contracts when she was on the plane with 47. Now she's just going to be killed off?
What do you guys think about Diana being killed?
Also, has anyone played the Sniper Challenge? If so what's your score. I've been tinkering and unlocked all the Challenges but can't come close to the current record of 7-8 Million. Hints and Tips?
Happy Gaming Duders.
