Call of Duty Black Ops, the negatives

Call of Duty : Black Ops looks bad ass. In fact, it's probably the only game coming out this year that i will buy new. However, i am starting to get worried that the Call of Duty series is becoming a one trick pony, and i fucking HATE ponies.

So, what are the negatives coming with Black Ops?





3D.
For those of you who haven't been informed, Call of Duty Black Ops is going to have a toggle-able switch to let players play it in 3d. Now, this isn't a big deal; i mean, i don't even have to use it. So, what's the issue? I don't want to hear the 12 year olds and stoners on xbox live commenting on how fucking awesome the game is in 3d. Seriously, if i enter a server and some stoner says "woah..man..it's like it's coming right at me." i will take the game back and exchange it for cash to purchase a gun and end myself.

Call of Duty: BO
Call of Duty: Black Ops is no doubt going to be a popular game. So, as a video game blog, i am probably going to be writing a bit about it. Unfortunately, as a blogger, i like to use abbreviations. The kicker? Call of Duty: Black Ops has the unfortunate abbreviation of "BO". Now, weather or not you as the reader care about this, it bugs me as a writer. I can't write "BO" in a blog and feel good about it, so i am going to have to start wasting those precious moments typing out "black ops". Do you know how long it takes for me to write "black ops"? Like a 10th of a second! Do you know what i could do with that valuable time?

Party Cheaters
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 blocked party chat in most of their team-based game types to protect the players from people who were partying up to cheat and boost. This was probably the smartest move MW2 did. Black Ops, however, has decided that they don't want to block part chatters on most of their game types. I guess we should all prepare to see a bit more boosting.


Now, keep in mind that none of these negatives are very big. I just wanted people to be aware of them. I am still going to purchase Black Ops, and more then likely i am going to enjoy the shit out of it.

  5. I to will also be buying this and will not be using the 3d aspect. i would like to see a call of duty where they just make up a conflict instead of basing them off of other wars or conflicts

  6. I loved MW2 so much, but it kind of fizzled for me after playing for so long. Maybe Black Ops can suck me back in.

  12. I like the way Black Ops looks. With a little luck, it'll fix all (okay, let's be realistic: most or some of) MW2's flaws.
