Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Cyber Core Tutorial and Co-Op Play Through

Co-op play is back!

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Co-op will be returning in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3! The tutorial is from the “Cyber Core” play through or “Ramses Station”. This was an exclusive play though at the PlayStation booth at E3. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is being described as a dark, gritty future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerge, and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the cutting edge technology of the military that can make or break the future of combat.

Black Ops 3 campaign has been designed for four-player online co-op or traditional solo play where players will encounter epic cinematic moments and open-area game play. This allows the players to approach the game with different strategy each time they play. What’s making this game different from the other Call of Duty games is that you can now completely customize your character, from weapons and load-outs, to abilities and outfits and with a progression system (I think its like the one from Battlefield).With all of this and a ton of exciting new features coming on November 6, Call of Duty aims to deliver an all new constantly evolving campaign experience.

So whether they are going to deliver more campaign in DLC drops i don’t know but they are leaving us with so many unanswered questions.

Microsoft are trying to fix the error as I’m typing this. It has something to do with the ‘Season Pass’ moving over to the XboxONE from the Xbox360.

CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE | 1 WEEK IN

So we have been playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare all week and we have to say that we are loving the game! We have been playing the Campaign, Multiplayer and Exo Survival and they are all great.

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfa

Campaign

The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare campaign is the best Call of Duty campaign we have ever played! and were not just saying that because it is the latest Call of Duty game out. The story to the campaign is fantastic as it starts of with two best friends in the army going out on a mission. But as s**t gets real (to put it lightly) your friend get him arm trapped and push your away to save you! Then things get personal!!

The story is great as it has a massive turn around half way through, so you are going against the people that you work for! But are working for the people that you used to work for. Confusing i know, but if you are going to play the campaign you will get what we mean.

Multiplayer

Well, its different, very different. If you think you are going to go into this game with the tactics and playing style from previous Call of Duty games, !THINK AGAIN!

Advanced Warfare is going to be one of those games that you either love or hate. We love it as it makes a change from all of the other Call of Duty online multiplayer’s! The Exo Suites rely make it a unique game, with everyone jumping around boosting left right and centre, its a very fast paced game which is what we like about it. There are no room for campers in this game as everyone if pin point accurate (most of the time).

Exo Survival

This is a lot harder of a game mode that it is. It is a lot like the third game mode from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 where you have to survive for as long as you can in each round. It’s like zombies but the enemy can shoot back at you.

Speaking of zombies, this is supposed to be dropping in one of the map packs that is coming out, which one we don’t know. (Hopefully not the last one) We have loved zombies since it was launched back on Call of Duty: World at War and has been one of them game modes that you can just go and and have a laugh with your friends, that is why it has become such a fan favourite.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare | Reloading System

The reloading system in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is rely unique, taking the perk ‘Slight of Hand’ (From previous Call of Duty games) and putting it into the reload system without the need of the perk.

There is the standard reload where you press the reload button and it reloads your weapon, putting what ever bullets you had left in your weapon and adding it back to you bullet count.

But there is also a second type of reload.

If you double tap the reload button, you will do a slightly faster reload, but the bullets that yu had in there clip at the time of the reload, will be discarded and not added back into you bullet count like on the first type of reload.

Try it for yourself if you do not understand, but i think hat it is a greta little thing that they have added into this game, giving you the option to do a quicker reload if you need it if you are in a sticky situation, or a slower reload.

The Evil Within

image

The evil within was at gamescom after being seen back in May. While there we got the plot of the game and what you will be doing within the game.

While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of his  officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he comes round, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
At the demo in Germany we played chapter 9 on the mission “cruel intentions” which is pretty far into he game.

The graphics were really sharp  and crisp making for a good horror game. They weren’t quite up to the levels of some of the other games we saw but this could just be down to the purposely placed dingy lighting for horror purposes.

While playing we found that there were still a few bugs in the game which we thought is probably the reason that the release date was pushed back a bit.
The things we found were when picking up items it took a few attempts at different angles for the pick up icon to appear, this isn’t s problem in quieter parts of the game but if your on the run and you have to try and pick up ammo from different angles you may get a zombie up behind you planting it’s teeth into you. The other thing we found was not a bug as such but more of a personal opinion. When walking through a door there’s an option to open it slowly but with this comes a small cut scene which after a few times becomes laborious. There is an option to kick the door down quickly without a cut scene but this can be more trouble than its worth.

Now onto the game play. It is the standard layout and controls for this type of game. Compared to other zombie games where a few shotgun shells to the body or head will end them but in this game you have to get them down and then burn them with a match to make sure that they don’t get back up again.
In some Instances in the game you will need to just run away because of lack of ammo or too many enemies, this can be a problem because of the stamina bar. This feature will force you to scavenge for everything you can, even bottles can be thrown for distractions or weapons.

Being sneaky in this game is definitely the the way to go. Throughout the game you will be able to be sneaky and do thing such as hiding under beds and in cupboards and wardrobes.

Overall this game looks like it will be a good addition to the many horror games out there. The way the game is meant to be played may be a bit hard for some people to get used to in a world of fast paced 1st person shooters. The game did have a few tense and scary moments combined with the eerie and jumpy soundtrack but we feel that if the the game was 1st person it would add alot lore suspense and tension to the game and would also intensify the scary moments with in the game.

The game looks like it will be a good contender in the horror game market and will be a must buy when it gets released in October this year.
