CODBLOPS First Strike’s Last Strike

While you lot have made absolutely no secret of your contempt for latter-day Call of Duty games, as I understand it they're pretty big business on PC nonetheless. Despite others' best, sneery comment-based efforts, people still buy them. So there will be a large and enthuastic audience for the news that DLC map pack First Strike has been given a PC release date, having already…

COD:BLOPS First Strike Images, No PC Date

While there's still no official date for the PC release of COD: Black Op's first DLC, First Strike, images of it have finally appeared. The 360 gets the content tomorrow, while us second class citizens must wait in confused sadness that we bought the wrong Microsoft product to win their approval. But it is coming to PC, and it was the biggest selling games of…

Gamers’ Voice To Challenge Black Ops Bugs

Gamers' Voice have confirmed that they will be reporting Activision to the trading standards authority over ongoing bugs in the PC and PS3 versions of Call Of Duty: Black Ops. In this article the UK-based gaming advocacy group said that: "a formal complaint will be submitted to the relevant government agencies that protect consumer rights in the UK on the week commencing 23rd Jan 2011.…

CODBLOPS First Mission Without Firing

One of my main criticisms of the mediocre Medal Of Honor was the lack of feeling involved. Indeed, I felt similarly playing the Modern Warfare games, whenever it became apparent that my actions weren't exactly crucial to progress (I followed behind on No Russian, without firing a shot). This is something "T2DMrBungle" discovered when playing Call Of Duty: Black Ops, specifically the first mission, played…

Call Of Duty Black Ops review

When I close my eyes, I see exploding limbs. More so than usual, I mean. There’s only been one story in gamesworld today, and while RPS is a site that celebrates and promotes the wildest outliers, it would be remiss of us to ignore this most mainstream of all games. So: after a day mainlining Black Ops’ campaign, I’m ready to KILL YOU SHOOT YOU…

Black Ops Out! Kinda Out. Video.

My instruments are giving me mixed reports. Today sees Call of Duty: Black Ops, the year's biggest release, dropping onto international markets like a continent-spanning commercial panther. Now, I'm hearing that some Steam pre-order customers have had their game unlocked already, but Americans are having to wait until 10am Eastern time, our own Alec is having to wait until between 3pm and 8pm [Alec Update…

“I Am Not A Carrier”

In his round-up of Black Ops videos earlier today, Quinns forgot one very important clip. Very, very important. Crucial, as far as I'm concerned. It concerns the player characters in one of the game's two Zombie modes - something that, quite frankly, is the first time to date that I've felt even a flicker of personal (i.e. not purely professional) interest in Treyarch's franchise-nicking shooter.…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Video Piñata

Imagine you're standing in front of a large piñata, shaped like your favourite handgun. I am giving you a heavy stick. Go on! Whack the piñata. Don't be shy! It probably won't explode. BAM! What's inside? What's falling out? Why, it's four new videos of Call of Duty: Black Ops, which hits shops next Tuesday. The first of these videos is the launch trailer, then…

Men With Guns: Guns With Men

Gosh, with all the Medal Of excitement I'd clean missed that the other manshooter, Call Of Duty: Black Ops, (you know, the one you are 76.5% more likely to spend your money on) has been flexing its pixels and playing at references to The Deer Hunter with a single-player trailer. Stuff explodes! Men fall down! Oh, this is what they want. Right, guys? Guys? It's…

Black Ops To Charge For Dedicated Servers

Let's recap. The PC version of Modern Warfare 2 didn't have dedicated servers, and there was much pulling of hair and spontaneous internet howling. More recently, Treyarch confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops (out November 9th) would have dedicated servers. It was Infinity Ward that abandoned the PC, not them, they said. In an interview with C&VG, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said "I…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Reveals Multiplayer

Last night saw some new information about Call Of Duty: Black Ops appearing, along with a selection of new trailers. Formerly "the one in-between the Modern Warfare games", this title is presumably of an awful lot more importance since the Infinity Ward debacle. Most importantly, last night Treyarch revealed the multiplayer mode for the game.

Black Ops Multiplayer Looks Like This

I have very rarely played Modern Warfare 1 or 2 online, so pray forgive me for not knowing which bits of this video specifically-prompted the internet-wide squeeeee! earlier today. Looks broadly like I would expect it to look, and as I suspect it should look if it's not to create titanic outrage - although I did particularly like the exploding crossbow. (Even though Timeshift did…

Gobbets! COD Black Ops’ Server Non-Scandal

The best-selling game of 2009, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, caused all manner of uproar, none of which managed to impede its steamroller progress in the slightest. Still, it's good to hear that franchise-inheritors Treyarch have paid at least some attention to the complaints. Specifically, the lack of dedicated servers, which both denied us the modding and customisation we're so used to and complicated…

Back In Black: Call of Duty: Black Ops

As reported earlier-yesterday, later-yesterday lead to the unveiling of Call of Duty: Black Ops on gametrailers. Very fast flashing imagery, so be warned strobe-fearers and be excited obsessive-panel-pausers. Also, the release date is on the site. 9th of November, this year. So - er - the trailer, yes? It follows.

Alternatively! Call of Duty: Black Ops

Now this gets interesting! Despite sites claiming that the game definitely was Call of Duty: Vietnam earlier, PC Gamer reveal that the site for Call of Duty: Black Ops is now live, though impossible to actually get into. And they claim that when the "Black Ops" rumour originally broke, it was a Cold War game with missions from all across that period culminating "in the…
