CoD

I’m a bit of a Call of Duty fan.

The other day I was given this Official Call of Duty set. Well, who wants to act their age all the time?

I noticed that there was a set of Lat & Long values on the box. The geek within couldn’t help punching these into Google Maps*.

Did it home in on a CoD-like battlefield? No, but it was amusing to see where. If you’re curious enough to do the same, you will need to go into Street View to get the full effect.

This weekend I has been mainly…

…playing multiplayer on COD Black Ops.

Finished the campaign a while back but hadn’t had the time to dip into XBox Live.

Over the weekend I’ve spent about 3 hours on-line and what fun. Of course the lobbies are full of prestige’d up geeks who have probably done nothing else but MP since the game came out but nevertheless I managed to have fun and not disgrace myself completely.

Black Ops – Done!

If you are expecting a review, I’m sorry to disappoint. There are plenty who will do a reasonable job of that. Suffice to say, what a great game!

I’ve finally managed to find the time to complete the single player campaign. It’s an interesting story, if not exactly historically accurate; however it has been great fun! There are some dodgy references (Bay of Pigs, for example) and some far fetched threads, however there are also some really cool bits like the “Apocalypse Now” style level with brilliantly chosen Rolling Stones track “Sympathy for the Devil”. Plus Sergeant Reznov is back from WAW 🙂

I experienced the same feeling on finishing the campaign as I did with MW2. As the final cut scene played out and the credits rolled I had an almost palpable feeling of loss, almost a poignant feeling of comrades I will never see again. Of course in reality it was just a disappointment that something enjoyable has ended! And then, at the very end of the final cut scene we see… (Ha ha, no spoilers!).

Anyway… I only did it on Regular so I still have Veteran to do and that, dear reader, will be a whole different game!

Plus there is still Multiplayer to start. Maybe I’ll see you on XBox live 😉
