Call of Duty: Black Ops Hero Armed With New Weapon: The Hammer of Verbosity?

First things first ladies and gentlemen. That's right; the Call of Duty series has a single-player campaign mode, smart asses. And for the upcoming Black Ops installment, Treyarch and Activision are unmuting the long silenced protagonist. No longer will the voiceless Gordon Freeman syndrome seen in Half-Life plague the COD series, no longer will you stand in mute bending to the will of your squadmates tactical advancements, and no longer will the player be denied ego-laden quips following his/her avatar's headshots. Prepare for emotional engagement. Prepare for loquation. Prepare for "GET TO THE CHOOPER!". Prepare for Alex Mason. Now, you may be asking yourself, "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.
