Maybe I was thinking about the sound effects? When new players enter the lobby and the countdown begins - that all goes back to the first Modern Warefare game.

I hope shotguns are as op as ever and they bring back that extra range on knife lunges from MW2

This is Treyarch. We will have OP Crossbows that can kill you in one hit from across the map!

This would be more realistic if you were putting about 7 rounds into the knifer before he killed you.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Treyarch; 11/2015, PS3/PS4/360/XO/PC)

Just got thru watching the 1940's Zombie theme and it looks like a blast...and different....





This time around, players will take on the role of one of four different characters in a 1940's film-noir setting. The Magician, The Femme-Fatale, The Cop and The Boxer take on the Shadow Man. The characters will get their voices and looks from Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Heather Graham (The Hangover 1-3, Californication), Neil McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1).

Pre-orders are available right now on Gamestop's website.

Hardened is $80, Juggernog is $200. Deluxe Digital is the cheapest, most effective way to get all of the game content by losing all the physical bonuses.

Looking forward to some thoughts and opinions on the beta. Not sure if I'll get this with Star Wars battlefront releasing so close but it's a chance since I'd love to play the SP & co-op part along with the new Zombie mode.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Treyarch; 11/2015, PS3/PS4/360/XO/PC)

Just played a couple of hours worth and I'm sort of split but it's still entertaining. It doesn't have that sense of "realism" that Advanced Warfare has. the graphics look great but the characters look more traditionally animated than they do in AW. I also noticed the lack of detail in the UAV and Helicopter, drone streaks. They look like really bad rotoscope.

The action is awesome, though, and I really do like seeing people explode in chunks. The scaling of the walls is also pretty cool and devastating once you've mastered it. The weapons are fine but I don't like how the armory is laid out.

I'll probably play some more later on today.

Does Best Buy's GCU discount not apply to the digital version of this?

They've increased it to level 49 for your specialist in addition to adding some primary weapon expansion slots and giving you access to TWO more specialists once you level up.

It's a fun game.
