  • Black Ops 2 "Uprising DLC Announced"

    BO2 Uprising DLC

    Activision has now confirmed that the previously rumored Uprising downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will reach Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 will be receiving the DLC first, starting on April 16th, and will be followed by other platforms. The cost for the DLC pack will be 1200 Microsoft Points, or your currencies alternative, and of course will be free for those who have purchased a Black Ops 2 season pass previously.

     

    Uprising will feature four multiplayer maps as well as a new "Mob of the Dead" Zombies game mode. Mob of the Dead will have players playing in Alcatraz with four actors behind some of Hollywood's most iconic mobsters, including Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen.

     

    Treyarch studio head, Mark Lamia made a statement about the game:

     

    "With Uprising, the team has really outdone itself again. In addition to creating four amazing new multiplayer maps, the Studio has been hard at work on the Zombies front to surpass what we accomplished with 'Call of the Dead.' What they've done this time around is nothing Zombies fans have seen before -- and if you don't believe me, just wait until you get into Purgatory."

     

    Are you interested in the new Uprising downloadable content pack? What are you most looking forward to?

     

     

  • Nuketown Zombies Map Available for Xbox Season Pass Holders

    Nuketown Zombies Map Pack Available!

    If you already own, or are considering purchasing the Black Ops 2 season pass, you may want to check out the bonus map Treyarch and Activision are giving with the pass.

    Previously only available to Collector's Edition owners, the Zombie Nuketown map will now be available for all Season Pass holders as well. The map is located within the Nuketown area which has been seen before in Black Ops 1. The level has been made for co-op play, and puts you in control of a group of well-equipped scientists wearing radioactive suits. The trailer for the map also shows destroyed buildings and access to the Pack-A-Punch.

    If you want to buy the season pass, it'll set you back $49.99. This seems like quite a lot, but with it you'll be able to download 4 upcoming map packs for free when they are released, as well as the bonus Zombie Nuketown map, which when considering that each map will probably retail for $15 separately, the season pass does end up being cheaper.

    "Nuketown Zombies is set during the events of Moon, and after the end of the multiplayer level from the original Black Ops game. A group of radiation scientists are investigating the Nuketown remains and discover soldiers that have been revived by Element 115 from a nearby Nevada base," the official page states. "The zombie soldiers attack the radiation scientists and turn them, and after receiving a distress signal, the base in Nevada sends in CIA and CDC agents to investigate. Upon arrival in Nuketown the agents lose communication with Hangar 18 and become stranded…setting the stage for Nuketown Zombies."

    Currently Nuketown Zombies is only available for Xbox 360, but will be available for other platforms shortly. Don't forget that our Master Mod controller includes Auto Aim Zombies, Drop Shot and over 10 mods exclusively for Black Ops 2. Order this custom controller today to get the best deal!

  • Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta launched October 6th - Full Release Soon After

    Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta Launched

    All you FPS fans out there are getting extra lucky with this year's lineup; with Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 set for release over the upcoming months we've already got hours of gameplay available at our hands. But for any of you still not satisfied, Warfighter, the new Medal of Honor game will be set to release very soon!

    Medal of Honor will hopefully offer a gameplay experience that adds something new from the crowd of recent military shooter releases, and if we're to go by the impressive gameplay footage and conceptual ideas released by Danger Close Games, we have reason to keep our hopes high.

    At E3 2012 Warfighter was shown by Danger Close to include in-depth and realistic military scenarios mimicking real-life terrorist intervention missions:

    "Medal of Honor Warfighter puts players in the boots of today's most highly trained and skilled warriors to experience missions that have a dotted line to real world terrorist events. This is Tier 1 on a global scale, featuring real world hotspots in the single-player campaign and introducing international Tier 1 Operators in multiplayer. This groundbreaking move gives players a window into the look and style of elite soldiers from 10 different countries around the world. With Medal of Honor Warfighter, gamers can represent their nation's Special Operations Forces on the multiplayer battlefield. Medal of Honor introduces a new mode where the world's best-of-the-best warriors go head-to-head in online competition."

    Warfighter will be running on the all-new Frostbite 2 engine so expect destroyable scenery, smart AI, and stunning visuals on both the Xbox and PS3.

    Warfighter is set to release on October 23rd, but if you want to play the game beforehand, grab yourself a modded controller and download the free open Beta from the Xbox marketplace.

  • Black Ops 2 - Zombie Mode to be Revealed

    Treyarch is pretty much done revealing both their single player and multiplayer modes. Now we just have to wait for the reveal of their final mode which has gotten as popular as the multiplayer mode, yes I am talking about the Zombies mode.

    The Zombies mode started out very simple in World at War and in Black Ops it got a major overhaul. Tryarch hasn't been shy about telling us what to expect from the Zombies mode in Black Ops 2, without letting us know too much that is. Based on what they have revealed, the improvement we are expecting to see in Black Ops 2 is HUGE.

    On the 25th of August a very simple tweet was posted on the official Black Ops 2 Twitter page which quite clearly hints at the upcoming reveal. This is what it read, "Something's coming...". The tweet was posted along with the picture of a door stained with a bloody handprint. I guess this is a subtle enough hint towards the imminent full reveal of the Zombies mode in Black Ops 2.

    This is what we know about the Zombies mode for now. It is going to have its own story mode. It will also have MUCH bigger levels than what we have seen in Black Ops. The biggest of the reveals thus far was the new mode that will allow a total of 8 players (two teams of 4 vs 4) to play together! From what we know for now, the objective of this mode will be to outlast the other team.

    Surprisingly, the amount of fans (including me) excited for the new Zombies mode might just be equal to that looking forward to the multiplayer. I guess Treyarch understands that fact which is why they put this much effort overhauling Zombies. I wonder if Treayarch plans a huge reveal at the upcoming PAX West? Either way we can expect the official reveal pretty soon.

    COD Black Ops 2 is sure shaping up to be a good one, even though every one of us had their doubts; an old engine, annual release etc. Well I guess we can find out for ourselves when it hits the stores on the 13th of October for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Be sure to keep a check on our site to stay posted on recent news about Black Ops 2.

    If you're a huge fan of Zombies you should look into our Evil Imaging. Our Evil Imaging is available for our modded controllers with over 40 different imaging options available!

  • COD Black Ops 2 - New Wildcards System Detailed

    The new 10 point system Create-a-Class in Black Ops 2 has created a lot of buzz purely because it is such a big game changer. This is the first and biggest change made to the Create-a-Class system that the franchise has seen since COD4.

    You guys might have heard about the Wildcard system that works along with Create-a-Class system but only recently more details were provided about that. As you can already guess, the Wildcard system is also a brand new addition to COD franchise.

    Players spend the 10 points allotted to them when creating their class. Everything you select costs 1 point, ranging from perks to attachments for your weapons. What this system allowed developers to do was to balance the game according to each individual item instead of balancing each weapon mod for example.

    As before, each weapon can only support a max of two attachments. Here is where one of the Wildcards come into play. The Wildcard called Primary Gunfighter allows players to equip an extra attachment to their weapons (3 in total). Equipping a Wildcard like this will also cost you 1 point.

    In all the previous games there was never really a need to use three attachments to your weapons since the perks were the main factors behind weapon efficiency (e.g. slight of hand). But this time around, weapon performance is only improved via attachments so adding more attachments is definitely the way to go. For example, the attachment Fast Mags has replaced the perk Slight of Hand. Similarly, Laser Sight is the new Steady Aim.

    The following is the list of ALL the Wildcards that you can expect to see in Black Ops 2:

    - Danger Close - Equip lethal grenade instead of tactical grenade (twice the amount of tactical grenades)
    -Tactician - Equip tactical grenade instead of lethal grenade (twice the amount of tactical grenades)
    -Primary Gunfighter - Equip 3rd attachment for primary weapon
    -Secondary Gunfighter - Equip 3rd attachment for secondary weapon
    -Overkill - Equip two primary weapons
    -Perk 1 Greed - Equip more than one perk from Tier 1 perks
    -Perk 2 Greed - Equip more than one perk from Tier 2 perks
    -Perk 3 Greed - Equip more than one perk from Tier 3 perks

    So as you can see, the addition of the Wildcards along with the new 10 point create-a-class system really adds a lot of variability to types of classes one can make. As Treyarch said, the new system is designed to allow players to make their classes according to their playing styles.

    I really can't wait to see the diverse playing styles that are going to evolve due to this system. Check out the screenshot of the Wildcards below. Black Ops 2 is set to be released on the 13th of November for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. For more Black Ops 2 related news make sure to keep an eye on our site.

    The new new Wildcard system seems to match the spirit of our Controller Creator. Make a modded controller to match your own unique style! Check our Controller Creator frequently for new controller add-ons and sale prices!

  • Medal of Honor: Warfigher Gets Linkin Park Involved

    EA has made their marketing strategy clear. They want to beat the reigning champ, Call of Duty, or at least take a chunk out of its market share. Every first person shooter wants to be CoD and who can blame them? The money CoD rakes in every year is unbelievable.

    Interestingly enough, this time EA is sticking to The Danger Close team making Medal of Honor Warfighter as grounded and real as possible in hope that it would attract the gamers. They believe that gamers who are looking for the authentic feel of a modern battlefield might prefer Warfighter over Black Ops 2. They have based this assumption on the fact that Treyarch has taken a very futuristic approach with BO2 which might not be well received by gamers. Some diehard CoD fans have actually voiced out their concerns regarding this in forums and blogs all over the internet.

    If true, this could very well be MoH's year. It is obvious that MoH may surpasses BO2 thanks to its amazing Frostbite 2 engine. MoH is supposed to actually look better than even BF3. We have all stared at awe at one point or other at the destructive capability of the Frost Bite 2. To add to it all they have also represented 12 Tier 1 teams across 10 countries in Warfighter. EA and The Danger Close team are hoping that this might play to the patriotic side of players and get them involved in a whole new level, much like in Fifa.

    Recently it was revealed that EA has gotten one of the most famous rock bands in the world, Linkin Park, involved in their project in an attempt to enhance the emotional and authentic military experience they are trying to deliver with MoH Warfighter.

    Danger Close revealed their cross-collaboration with Linkin Park and that Mike Shanoda, co-lead vocalist and co-producer of Linkin Park, has already composed original in-game scores for MoH Warfighter which were specifically made to "add depth and emotion to an already intense gameplay experience."

    EA also produced Linkin Park's new music video - Castle of Glass which will also be included in the game. Only time will tell how much of an effect this cross-collaboration would have on sales of MoH Warfighter. For now check out the following videos.

    Castle of Glass - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzOt12co4nk&feature=player_embedded

  • Black Ops 2 -Top 5 Multiplayer Features

    Treyarch has repeated time and time again that they are going to make the whole Black Ops 2 experience epic and from what we have seen from GamesCom, they sure did keep their word. In this article I will bring to you what I feel were the top features of Black Ops 2 multiplayer (shown till now).

    Class Creation - 10 Point System

    Treyarch has completely redefined the create-a-class feature that has remained pretty much standard since the first Modern Warfare. They have implemented a new 10 Point System with which players can now build their class (points are used to equip weapons, equipments etc.). This system removes the restraints of having fixed number of grenades, equipments and weapons, and will essentially allow players to make their very own unique class that suits their playing style.

    Killstreaks replaced by Scorestreaks

    Black Ops 2 will also be utilizing Scorestreaks instead of Killstreaks (similar to that seen in Modern Warfare 3). This system will allow players to collect points towards their rewards (care package etc.) in ways other than just killing enemies.

    New Scoresteak Rewards

    New killstreak rewards are always fun. To go with the new scorestreak mechanic that they have implemented, Treyarch has provided several new scorestreak rewards that surpass the predecessors. Amongst the reward are

    New Predator Missile-basically a scatter bomb which affects a larger area of the map

    The Guardian-heat-based weapon which primarily incapacitates targeted enemies but also kills them if they are too slow to avoid it

    Mech-a mech which is deployed on the battlefield and can be controlled by the player himself or be left on autopilot to search and kill enemies

    Performance of Weapons

    This time around the weapon performance cannot be influenced with perks like Steady Aim, Sleight of Hand and Stopping Power. Instead in order to improve weapon performance players have to utilize the different attachments given e.g. Quickdraw-ergonomic handle for faster aiming. It is a pretty clear concept, attachments improve weapons, perks improve players.

    The Shoutcast

    The new Shoutcast feature allows any multiplayer match to be streamed to anyone who would like to watch it. This feature also has an option to allow one to act as the commentator while they watch the game. This might not be a huge feature but still a cool one.

    This could be a completely different way how players can interact with each other as well as add a new layer of detail for friends who play together. But most importantly this feature is going to be an asset in pro matches. One can learn a lot by watching pros do their thing.

    As I said earlier, there is so much being revealed about Black Ops 2 that it is very hard to some up in one or even ten articles! But these for me are the top features that caught my eye. Keep an eye on our website as we list out more cool things about Black Ops 2 Multiplayer and Zombies mode in our future articles.

    Be ready to dominate the competition when Black Ops 2 is released with our modded Xbox controllers.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter vs Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

    Warfighter to Compete with Black Ops 2

    It seems every year now we gamers get to witness a clash between FPS superstars. Last year it was Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3 and this year it is Black Ops 2 vs Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Both these games are direct sequels to their respective predecessors and both of them show great promise.

    Since 2003 Call of Duty has been the reigning champ with little or no competition. Even though there are a lot of gamers annoyed by the COD franchise now because of the similar gameplay and old engine, they still continue to break sales records every year. It's no wonder the franchise doesn't seem too eager to set itself apart from their tried and tested formula.

    This is where Battlefield and MoH come into play. These guys desperately want to get to the top and that's why they are trying to improve on any and all aspects of the genre. We have all seen how amazing the Frostbite 2 engine looks and its potential for destructive environments. This year's MoH is expected to actually be better looking (slightly) than BF3.

    Not only is MoH bringing a better graphics to the table they are also bringing their secret weapon - globalization. Seems The Danger Close team has taken inspiration from Fifa in becoming more 'global'.

    In one of our previous articles we gave the complete list of the twelve Tier 1 Teams that were available from a total of ten different countries. The Danger Close team is banking on the local appeal of these teams and hoping the patriotism factor would kick in to get people that much more involved with game and the overall experience.

    Also another key difference between Black Ops 2 MoH this year is that MoH is much more grounded while Black Ops 2 (being set in the future) has gone a bit high-tech. A lot of fans have already expressed their dissatisfaction with Black Ops regarding this.

    But no matter what the online polls say or how many complaints there are, CoD has always come out on top. With this year's Black Ops being termed as the MOST ambitious of all CoD games, MoH has to bring its A game in order to have any chance of competing.

    It is obvious that there is no way that MoH can take the throne this year but, having a solid run will definitely help the franchise get a bigger cut the next time. Maybe in time we will see BF or MoH become the top dog but till then I hope the competition keeps on increasing. The stronger the competition, the better it is for us gamers.

    If you aren't sure which of these titles you will be picking up, don't fret. Our modded controllers are likely to be compatible with both titles. If you already have our Adjustable controller or our Master Mod you can fine tune our Adjustable setting to have rapid fire on day 1 of either release.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter - Multiplayer Details

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter Multiplayer

    There isn't a TON of info available regarding the multiplayer but, there has been some nifty details discovered over the last few days and I thought I might sum it up.

    First of all, the 12 Tier 1 operators from a total of 10 countries that we will be able to get our hands on in the multiplayer have been confirmed:

    SAS - British Special Air Service Regiment
    SEAL - US Navy's primary Special Operation Force
    SFOD-D - US Army's primary Counter Terrorist Force
    OGA - US' Other Government Agencies is a mix elites from different backgrounds
    JTF2 - Canada's elite CT force - Joint Task Force 2
    GROM - Poland's elite CT Force
    KSK - Germany's CT Force
    SASR - Australian Army's premier SOF
    UDT - South Korea's UDT/Seals an elite SOF
    FSK - Norway's primary SOF
    SOG - Sweden's elite SOF
    Spetsnaz - Russia's special purpose CT force

    The option of being able to represent you own country is definitely going to bring about some patriotism and with that some added intensity. What I am waiting for is to see how these teams are different teams and which one is the right one for me!

    MoH: Warfighter is also going to incorporate something called Fire Teams which would pair you up with another player. This would not only help you survive but also add a layer of strategy, team play and tactics. It is essentially a sleeker version of BF's Squad mechanic. If you die, you will spawn right next to your partner. Taking it a step further, team members will be able to spot each other's outline through buildings etc. That way even if you two split up, you will always know where your partner is.

    Final thing I want to mention is the multiplayer trailer that was released. I don't know about you guys, but to me it looked amazing. Thanks to the Frostbite 2 engine the graphics look superb. EA is claiming that MoH: Warfighter is actually going to look better than BF3!

    The action also looks fast paced but that of course is thanks to the editing. What really got me going are the sounds, it really gets you pumped! I especially love the way the whole camera shakes because of nearby explosions, fantastic. Really get the impact across.

    Well the MoH: Warfighter is set to release on the 23rd of October this year and I can't wait to find out more. I really hope this iteration will make me happier than Medal of Honor 2010.  Check out the multiplayer trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xG9T6h4foA

     

     

    Have you pre-ordered Medal of Honer: Warfighter or Black Ops 2? If you have, you will definitely need a modded controller. Choose our Stealth Adjustable Rapid Fire Controller with MW3/BF3 functions and you will get 10 rapid fire pre-sets and our adjustable rapid fire mod compatible with all major shooters in addition to exclusive mods compatible with Black Ops. Don't find yourself on the bottom of those leaderboards with a normal controller, upgrade to an Evil Controller.

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter Shows Off the Frostbite 2 Engine

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter

    Medal of Honor is posing some serious competition against Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 this year. The Frostbite 2 engine makes that game stand out from previous shooters. It looks absolutely gorgeous and seems Danger Close are really trying to achieve new heights with this game.

    Check out the campaign gameplay demo:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baS1CiL_rjU

    Everything is destroyable and shatters into tiny bits on repeated fire. Even the chandeliers swing in reaction to the shots being fired! CoD's old engine might just cost them this time around (probably not).

    Warfighter is also set to bring an international experience to both online and offline gameplay as the developers Danger Close are incorporating 12 different Tier 1 military teams from 10 different countries in the game. It’s a cool concept, giving everyone a chance to represent their country.

    Also I like the little bits of detail they have added, like the different choices when breaching a door. You have choices from kicking the door down to throwing a frag grenade or flashbang. Depending on what method you choose the following gameplay will be different.

    The game is set to be released on the 23rd of October 2012, almost 2 weeks before Black Ops 2 comes out. A smart move I might add since it is nearly impossible to directly compete with Call of Duty, especially this time when Treyarch is adamantly claiming that Black Ops 2 would be the biggest game of the franchise.

    If you are excited for both Medal of Honer: Warfighter and Black Ops 2 you will need a modded controller. Choose our Stealth Adjustable Rapid Fire Controller with MW3/BF3 functions and you will get 10 rapid fire pre-sets compatible with all major shooters in addition to exclusive mods compatible with Black Ops. These mods are likely to be fully functioning in Black Ops 2, so be prepared for the release by ordering one these controllers today.
