The Entertainment Software Association presents this annual event for the media, vendors and retailers which will benefit from the enormous sales potential from Consoles, PC and Mac hardware upgrades, instructional manuals, accessories and of course the titles themselves.
At the Microsoft Press Event this morning, Xbox Grand Poo Baa Phil Spencer thanked Gamers and Developers for growing the user base of the Xbox One and the staff at Microsoft for its development. Phil reeled in the gaming crowd with his dedication to the community and began with the trailer of what Phil called the largest franchise for the Xbox console, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. This new title takes place in the future of 2054 and will be available for the Xbox One. The Games DLC, Downloadable Content will also be available for the Xbox One as soon as they are ready.
Sledgehammer Games and Activision made sure of letting gamers know, the Call of Duty franchise will continue to develop and introduce new ways to play.
I received a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops II yesterday from Activision, actually the good folks sent me the Xbox360 Hardened Edition which includes a ton of extras for those chomping at the bit for more Call of Duty.
We also received the PC version which is available as a Steam Download. I’m still one of those that likes to have the title on DVD and for the television segment on KMSB Fox 11 always great to show the Box! Either way, I fired up the title last night and while I had a little confusion getting into the game, specifically to play the Zombie version of the game but eventually got in to play the campaign which featured a well produced story line. The game play is fluid and the characters are unlike I have seen before in detail! I completed a couple of missions which included calling in Air Support as well as firing big guns off a boat.
I would recommend the Hardened Edition for those fans of the Call of Duty series. The Box set includes a Collectible Limited Edition Game Case with special artwork, Limited Edition Challenge coins, Access to Nuke town Zombies game which puts you in a 1950’s Era Nuclear ravaged neighborhood and the Official Soundtrack by Jack Wall with the theme from Trent Reznor.
The game play is fun and action filled but certainly not geared at the “Young Un’s” with expletives peppered in throughout the game.
