Call of Duty: Black Ops single player Campaign Trailer released

Activision doesn't want Electronic Arts stealing all the ink. On the day EA is set to launch its anticipated Medal of Honor reboot, its arch nemesis has released a brief diversion: the explosion-filled campaign trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops.

It may take place during the Cold War, but as you'll see in this trailer, Black Ops gets hot fast, turning the action up to 11. You'll play as an operative without boundaries and above the law. And don't worry if you get caught wreaking havoc, because you don't exist.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is set to ship for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and Windows PCs on November 9.

Now, i bet a lot of you guys are going to buy this one. Whats your opinion on CoD's campagn? Are you even gonna play it or jump right into the multiplayer action?

Warcraft 4 announcement at Blizzcon 2010?

As you guys might have heard, Blizzcon 2010 is going to take place in a few weeks – October 22-23.
And every time Blizzard is celebrating it’s great franchises – Warcraft, World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo – together with the fans attending, rumors come up which great announcement Blizzard is going to make.
This year is arguing that Warcraft 4 might be announced this year during the opening ceremony.
According to a “fairly trusted source”, vgtribune reports that Warcraft 4 is under development and lists what the newest sequel to Blizzards successful rts-series shall feature:
  • Episodic campaign was considering – no word on what they decided.
  • Thrall is “currently” in it.
  • The game is planned “tentatively” for a Q4 2012 release.
  • Its an RTS based on the Starcraft II engine.
  • Its being considered for multiple platforms like the 360 and PS3, but DS has actually been started on.
  • It now finally has a team working on it since Starcraft is out.
  • Its still very early stages and the concept art looks “beautiful”.
The problem about such news is that a “fairly trusted source” is mostly everything but trustworthy. And as this is right now the only  news about Warcraft 4, there are good chances that this rumor will not be proven as true.

Call of Duty: Black Ops on Pace to Top Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 set the pre-order bar, selling nearly 3 million copies before it was released in November 2009 -- in North America alone. The title then went on to become one of the most popular games of all time, selling over 20 million copies worldwide. Now, according to data from retailer GameStop, Call of Duty: Black Ops could be poised to top its predecessor.

In an interview with Gamasutra, GameStop merchandising head honcho Bob McKenzie reports that pre-orders for CoD: Black Ops are outpacing its record-setting predecessor.

"GameStop is tracking to all-time, record reservations on Call of Duty: Black Ops," McKenzie told Gamasutra, without revealing specific numbers. "We are ahead of where we were with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 last year, which previously set the industry standard."

VG Chartz, which tracks retail pre-orders in the Americas, currently has Black Ops at 1.5 million copies sold, and we've still got a month to go before the game is released.

MotorStorm Apocalypse - E3 2010: IGN Live: MotorStorm 3 Demo

Racing through a city as it's ripped apart isn't just visually arresting, it's a great way to introduce players to a race course that drastically changes from lap to lap. My first loop through the shattered suburbia was filled with hairpin turns and obstacles, but during the second lap the ground heaved and buildings collapsed in front of me.
There aren't just new barriers on the track, but there are new shortcuts as flat terrain can become a jump, or a wall can crumble to reveal a shortcut. And like me, you might become so entranced by the collapsing architecture that you forget to avoid the Monster truck trying to run your car off the road.

MotorStorm Apocalypse is a clever way to bring back some oomph to a series that was becoming a little dry. Adding 3D to the formula makes total sense. The area of the city I raced in was filled with falling ash, fireballs, and smoke, all of which danced across the foreground of the screen as I charged down the road. Paying attention was difficult, and launching off of a ramp into a wall was even more fun with the obstacle popping off the screen.

Defense Department Maintains Ban on Medal of Honor After Taliban Renaming

Gamers will no longer play as the Taliban in the multiplayer for Electronic Arts' Medal of Honor reboot, but the Defense Department's Army & Air Force Exchange Service has decided it still won't allow its stores to sell the videogame on military bases.

After months of controversy, EA announced on October 1 the Taliban faction had been renamed Opposing Force out of respect to the friends and families of fallen soldiers that expressed concern over the Taliban's inclusion. In a statement released yesterday, AAFES said the renaming hasn't changed its opinion about the game.

What do you think, is this reasonable?
