Call of Duty Black Ops 3 review – another variant of the same old thing

Call_of_duty_black_ops_3

Before I start reviewing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, I want to say that I haven’t played Call of Duty since Modern Warfare. Ever since then, I was disconnected from the Call of Duty world. Back then I used to be a semi-pro player with a good team, but after Activision started releasing the Call of Duty game year after year, I knew that the Call of Duty scene will soon fall and I started to play other games. Now I decided to give Call of Duty another shot and what better time to start to play the game again if not now, when Call of Duty Black Ops 3 was released.

First things first, since I haven’t played Call of Duty in ages, I do apologize in advance if I say something stupid. I was kind of excited when I started to download the game, it did took like an hour to download at 10/mbps but it does have 56GB so that’s fair, yet I am still curious what content does this game have.

The first thing I noticed is that in Call of Duty Black Ops 3, you can choose a female character which I’m pretty sure it’s a first in all the series, maybe now developers are acknowledging female gamers. The other thing that impressed me is that you are not stuck with the character that the producers are imposing, you can actually customize your character and choose between varieties of ethnicities.

But the campaign story doesn’t seem something extraordinary, or at least it didn’t impress me. Why aren’t they trying to make a WW2 game again? With today’s graphics, it would probably be the best Call of Duty in years.

I don’t have anything special to add about the campaign as it is a 10 hour trip through all the overrated stories you’ve heard or seen on TV or on the Internet by now. From conspiracies to AI gone evil, the narrative takes you through explosions of epic proportions and make you fight against all odds. The co-op elements are an improvement, but I found the whole campaigns rather boring, although the graphics are amazing and some scenes are pretty epic.

I recommend you take advantage of the co-op mode and play the campaign with your friends, otherwise it might seem like a waste of time.

There is also the Zombie mode, which a lot of people were waiting to explore, but I only took a glimpse at it, so I could review it. The mid-century background with the jazzy soundtrack do mix well with zombies and beware of them, they’re pretty strong. Again this mode should be played with friends and there is also the Nightmare option, which transforms the campaign into an undead apocalypse.

Multiplayer

This is the feature I was most interested about, playing the multiplayer like I used to in Call of Duty 4, but the first thing that came to my mind is that it’s never going to be as good as Call of Duty 4. You can hate me for my opinion, but the most competitive Call of Duty was Modern Warfare 1 this is just not going to cut it. But I did enjoy the multiplayer, I can’t lie, it is fun and skill oriented, but it still has a missing component that none of these latest games seem to have.

The thing is that, for the first time, I didn’t have to change my sensitivity, they got that right, at least for my requirements, because I consider the aim to be the most important thing in an FPS game. The movement is spot on as well, you will not be disappointed by it, but I still can’t agree with the use of perk, it was frustrating in Call of Duty 4, it is frustrating now.

But all the bad could go away if they could stop at one Call Of Duty and make it competitive enough to make players fall in love with this game again. Call of duty 2 and Call of Duty 4 were and still are the most competitive games from the Call of Duty series even though people are just playing it for fun now.

Conclusion

All in all, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has nothing special to offer except for the fact that developers are starting to acknowledge female gamers by introducing a female character. I still enjoyed playing it as it is one of my favorite games, but Call of Duty 4 will always remain my personal choice as the most fun and competitive gameplay.

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end. Keanu Reeves, a renowned actor known for his iconic roles in film franchises such as The Matrix and John Wick, as well as his involvement in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been cast for the role.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.
