"Didn't Alex Mason recently liberate a mining planet in revenge for his dead brother with he help of a bunch of rebels?" You're absolutely right. Treyrach's character development department may have lost a few points for originatlity, but hey, who doesn't steal ideas from other companies in the video game industry? Treyarch reports indicate Mason's voice acting will be done by Avatar's Sam Worththington. Prepare for Mason, and rediculously designed shotguns like seen in the image.

If you haven't had enough Black Ops game play footage yet to fill your stomach, G4 recently fired off a pair of fast paced, pew-pew clips for the hungry Call of Duty fans to feast on. The one I've posted fits into the typical gameplay trailer mold; splicing of innumerable action-packed killcams - with the occasional knife in the gut - all featured on the handsome looking multiplayer map, "Jungle". Mark Lamia, Treyarch's Studio Head, offers a heaping plate of insightful commentary along with the video, being sure to leave no resource untapped in the department of overly dramatic and irrelevant flailing hand gestures. That's what we call developer's passion...or poor presentational skills? EDIT: Video is back!

If you haven't opened an additional Browser tab yet, just think...you could be that miscreant tactically maneuvering about campus in a Ghillie Suit! On another note, GameStop also announced that "[they are] tracking to all-time, record reservations on Call of Duty: Black Ops. We are ahead of where we were with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 last year, which previously set the industry standard." Watch your back, Ramirez!

Just this past week, the U.S. Defense/Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded Lockheed Martin a hefty $6.9 million contract to advance the development of the company's so-called "One-Shot Program." This research project traces its production roots back to 2007, aiming (pun intentional) to develop a seemingly ahead of our time sniper scope that will automatically paint targets. This scope will of course be a mini-super computer within itself, possessing the capability to calculate crosswinds, GPS location, target range, temperature and even humidity, all of which are instantly processed and displayed in real time on the sights.
A number of test units are expected soon. What could the implications of these RL Haxx be?! Will the next Geneva Convention be turned into a VAC or Punkbuster Conference? We'll have to wait and see where the shots fall I suppose, and lets certainly not hope they're rewarded with a Tactical Nuke every 25 kills.

There are only two words that come to mind...wait, WAIT...scratch words! Pure, unadulterated reactionary cackling laughter should result after watching this masterpiece. I don't know about you, but I had to firmly brace myself to my chair in order to keep my uncontrollable giggles from having me take a spill onto the floor! By far one of the greatest bouts of amusements I've had in quite some time. "OH GAWD I DID IT!"
The three-dimensional craze isn't going to stop any time soon as Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops will be 3D compatible on every system (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC with the proper NVIDIA chipset) when it launches on November 9. The option will be coming to the next marquee Call of Duty game "day one, out of the box," says Mark Lamia, studio head at Treyarch. Stereoscopic 3D visual effects will be available to players in all of Call of Duty: Black Ops modes—campaign, multiplayer, Combat Training, Zombies—as long as they own a 3D-ready HDTV or NVIDIA 3D Vision-ready PC, using active shutter glasses technology. I'm aware there aren't many individuals who may posses this powerful piece of home 3D technology, but is this capability an incentive for you to purchase Treyarch's upcoming title!
