While I really do hate agreeing with ZP I will say that yes, we do need another war.
NO the Iraq debacle does not count.

OT: Fuck CoD, I vowed to never ever buy another CoD after MW2 unless they make a Call of Duty that could be as balanced and damn fun as CoD MW1. Until such a day comes I'll keep playing a game from people who know how to make online shooters i.e. DICE.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Watch Video
You know that be a perfect way to settle disputes instead of sending people off to die so that two old farts can play a game of WAR as if soldiers were just toys.

Oh god that howler monkey bit was disturbing...

But I agree with the majority, I mean, if you call it black ops, at least have some stealth in it...they may as well have called it "Call of duty, look! another fucking one!"

its so weird how much we love to have games set in hypothetical invasion situations when you consider that its sooo unlikely, its much more likely that we would have another civil war
And the tea party conservatives would win. They have all the guns.

Frightening.

After playing for two hours, I seriously had a migraine! WFT?! I think Yahtzee is so right that this game overwhelms you. I also never got that part, when glass mouth joins my side and is able to speak in normal sentences and move like normal when we've just smashed some glass into his mouth. Seems like this was like a fitness milk shake for him.

Awww, I was hoping for Assassin's Creed.

Oh well, fun review nevertheless.
Same here, still it's good to see this game get such a treatment :D I'm starting to hate the Call of Duty Series... It's all about "Press Start... You WIN!!!! Now go play in multiplayer you pansy!"... I missed the days of Call of Duty like the Classic... I downloaded it from the PSN and I love it, expect for the graphics... OMG... Well anyway good game and Black Ops seems unnecesary, more like a expansion pack of Modern Warfare 2... But I gotta say I love the removal of Quickscoping :) That was awesome!

Still haven't played MW2 (BO) to this very day.

After watching this, I don't think I ever will. Nicely done, best ZP in a while. For some reason, that image of the obese "American" girl cracks me up.

Excellently done, Yahtzee. America's war obsession is disturbing, much like that South Park episode where Mel Gibson is begging to be tortured. Also, NSFW

Yet another reason I don't deal with war shooters. Just give me something akin to Serious Sam or Duke Nukem and I'm happy.

Also... "OH BUGGER MY BRITCHES!! THAT was uncalled for!!"

Never thought I'd hear Yahtzee actually get freaked out by needless mutilation, hilarious as it was. And here I am thinking he'd probably love the Higurashi series. :p

If only I could actually PLAY the single player explosion seizure fest. Instead I'm stuck in stutter alley with 90% of the PC community.

Guess Yahtzee played it on a console.

Oh goody. More torture porn in a video game. Why are these games criticised by Fox News again? They're practically 24: The game.

You'd love it if Jack Bauer was doing unspeakable things with glass for God and Country.

Hes right, we do need a war. and i mean a REAL war not this bullshit going on in the mid east, jumping in on a country in the mists of a civil war does not count.
