In BOIII it takes two hits. That was kept over from the beta. Gotta get used to it.

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

This review on Amazon cracked me up....

1 of 19 people found the following review helpful
Scared my son too much.
By The1andOnly on November 6, 2015
Platform for Display: PlayStation 4Edition: Standard
Was so excited to finally play the greatest game series of all time when something happened. The developers did not do a good job at letting me know that there would be zombies in this game and it scared Billy (my son) so much he started throwing things.

After giving him his medications I played this game and while I enjoyed the love story between Captain price and a toilet, I did not enjoy the fact that at one point in the game you are just strolling along when A GIANT WHALE FROM 1893 COMES ALONG AND DEMANDS YOU GIVE HIM YOUR STAPLER THAT HE USES TO GRADE HIS 4TH GRADE CLASS BUT WHILE YOU DO HAVE A STAPLER YOU DO NOT WANT TO LEND IT OUT BECAUSE YOUR REMEMBER THAT YOU ALSO NEED IT WHEN YOU GO TO BATTLE WITH JAY Z OVER THE LAND OF AMERICA THAT HAS BEEN OVERRUN BUY GIANT SUPER COMPUTERS FROM BILL GATES'S ARMY THAT HAS ROBOTS THAT SOMEWHAT LOOK LIKE HULK HOGAN IF HE WERE ABOUT 2 INCHES SHORTER AND FELL OUT OF A PLANE WHILE EATING JAMBA JUICE FOR ABOUT A MONTH so yeah not cool.

Anyway now I need to schedule therapy for billy who is having nightmares so yeah infinityward thanks a lot keep making scary games that ruin the family.

0/6 stars the worst game that may have been created by super computer from mars.

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

We don't live in a Real World anymore...or at least where even an ounce of common sense exist. We live in a World of Mentality Impaired, mush-for-brains, inept. clueless "little kids" who needs an instruction book to swing a hammer or couldn't think themselves out of a paper bag......That person or the entire family should be banned from even owning a gaming console.....have we really gone backwards that much?

I played a bit of the campaign at lunch when I went home. I didn't realize just how bad my shooting is. If there were a trophy for shooting up walls, cans, tables, lights and everything around I would get one in no time flat. The last three games I've played all had swords, pole arms, cleavers, axes, crystal balls, wands, spears, maces....last time I actually fired a gun in game was probably back in May with Destiny. Game looks good though...

Um, wat?
You do realize that amazon "review" was an attempt at humor, right?

I came here to see what you guys thought of the game but instead I get to see this almost epic page.

Where is Nuketown content? In the case or emailed pre-order bonus?

Edit : I picked up my copy. It's in there

Nuketown is in the BONUS section. It's a separate map from all the rest. Fun shit. The code for the map should be in your case.


Everything has been going great but Zombies is a fucking mess. I have not been able to play one single game with anyone. At one point the game loaded up 18 fuckers in the lobby. People were like what the fuck, is this ground war?! I see a patch or update in Zombies' future. Too bad - it looks good.

Jesus, I'm getting old. I forget how draining and exhausting CoD can be; both campaign and multiplayer.

Also, first few tries, it would not connect me to their servers - I guess because it's day-1, but still, that's bullshit.

On a side question since I haven't played a COD in a long time, when you Level Up the weapons in Campaign is it more for opening up more various types of attachments or is there any buffs say to damage? Also is there anything in the Campaign that carries over to MP?

I am loving the ICR right now in MP. While it's damage output is weak compared to the other Assault Rifles, the range and accuracy are stellar.

The only that I notice that transfer over from campaign/multiplayer is the camo skins from the weapons.

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

Yeah, haven't been able to play online due to server issues, so I've been tackling the campaign. I thought the campaigns for Black Ops 1 & 2 were kinda cool and interesting. This one, however, is incomprehensible nonsense. I mean, CoD campaigns usually are the "Micheal Bay" of videogame narratives, but the Black Ops ones at least had some thought put into them, that is, until this third one.

I think I have two main levels left to go on the campaign.

Activision needs to drop this P2P bullshit. Halo 5's multiplayer is as smooth as fucking butter thanks to Azure. Black Ops III is the same garbage everyone has been complaining about since MW3.

Trying to do online co-op on the campaign is exhausting with people getting kicked overtime we start the session. The few games I've been able to play, especially on NUK3TOWN, have been just lag filled campfests.

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

Just wrapped up the campaign. It was pretty cool but not as fulfilling as AW, because it's been set-up (obviously) for a potential sequel.

I don't think the story is incomprehensible, because it's pretty much dealing AI and artificial intelligence. I thought it handled those themes well enough in the game. I do think that leveling up in the campaign is really hard as I only leveled up to 13 through the whole thing.

I started on Nightmares but will play that later. It's time to smash in the MP section for bit.

Yep...we tried the local campaign and had issues 3-4 times yesterday and finally gave up. Seems about every time a highly anticipated game comes out there are server issues right off the bat.

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

Question on the Zombie Mode...is there a actual story when you first start it or can you just jump in a public match? Do you level up the characters themselves in any way?

I'm guessing I'm close to the end of the campaign. So far I've liked it and fun to play with some of the bio-metric stuff. I like the various locations of the Safe Houses and the game does look stellar with the various places so far. Would be interesting to do 3-4 plyr co-op campaign for sure. I need to try MP as well.

Haven't tried campaign or zombie modes yet but I'm having a lot of fun with basic pvp. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get back into a fps after years of not playing one but it didn't take long to get addicted again. Just hit level 30 last night.
