    I don't think Brad is really bad at games, like Artreus said its hard to talk and play at once, I just am baffled they don't read the text every single time and, as the wonderful I Am Alive quicklook and countless others prove, this always gets them in trouble.

    I guess I just want him to learn from his mistakes but it doesn't seem like it's going that way.

    Brad will be the first one to kill his kid.
    He'll raise him to about five years old. Then he'll say, "My son, I love you so much I want to have another child to love so much."
    But then he won't read the prompt and accidentally overwrite his current kid.

    You should feel good about this post.

    I used to dislike Brad, but I've come to like him and his goofy voice. The quality of his gameplay honestly just doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    227 people out of the 5000 registered on giant bomb have the achievement so it clearly isn't easy.

    Also people reading text on camera is very boring, can't blame the guys for not doing it.

    Well it is a thread for discussing giant bomb.

    So people are going to discuss giant bomb. I do not see why people get so pissed off in here about that junk

    So I was on board with Black Ops II as soon as I found out it was an actual sequel to Black Ops, because I really liked that game and its setting

    But listening to the podcast about it made it one of my most anticipated games of the year

    80s politics meets near-future sci-fi? Branching storylines? Multiple endings? Mocapped horses?!

    Just hook it to my vein.

    Yeah the future stuff was unexpected but it makes sense. Black Ops was untapped territory so why not leap further instead of just setting it a little while after the first game?

    And the stuff in Jeff's article gives hope that it's more than just a new coat of paint.

    Black Ops was the only Call of Duty game where, upon finishing it, I sat back and thought, "That was a pretty entertaining story."

    So I am pretty excited for BO2.

    I haven't played a CoD game since 4. 2 and 4 were pretty amazing games, and definitely some of the most intense gaming I've ever done. Black Ops 2 looks like it might get me back on the train, and I might even see if anyone at work has a 360 copy of Black Ops 1 I can borrow to get the story.

    MW2 and 3 were still pretty good games

    But they just delivered more of the same

    I only play Modern Warfare for the Single Player campaign. I loved the first one, even though I had no idea what was going on, story-wise.

    Then by 2, I guess I was bored with military shooters in general.

    Yeah, as someone who was recently filmed demo'ing a game, and who skipped through a lot of the text to get to the actual gameplay, and who then saw a bunch of people complaining that I skipped through all the story stuff

    I have some sympathy for the approach

    I can't explain why I hate it so much, I just do! It's like preggers. You're not saving anytime saying it that way, stop being annoying! It's irrational, but it's there.

    Also, I hate the word "brat."

    Dude what? It's not exactly Dostoevsky. How can you play Call of Duty for the story and then not get the story? Everything is spelled out for you. There isn't a huge expanded universe you have to "get".

    I'm kind of bummed out to learn that the horse stuff in the trailer is 1980's afghanistan flashbacks. As interesting as it will be to have Mujahideen as the "good guys" in a major video game property, I was kind of excited for the potential of horseback fighters versus the rogue drone robot army.

    Well it might get down to this considering the plot seems to be a toned-down version of MGS4's (rogue bad guy takes over all that war technology for himself). Horses might turn out to be the only reliable mode of transportation by the end.

    No need to be hostile about it. I just didn't really follow it. Maybe I wasn't paying attention. Who even cares.

    Aw man, that's what I was hoping too, with all the "they're turning our stuff against us" stuff in the trailer and all.
