Brian H.2 Press Releases
A little heads up..
Activision is doing something new with this release of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It’s going to come out on a Friday! Friday, November 6th to be exact (well, at 12:01 AM).
That means no more taking off work on Tuesday and Wednesday to play it, now you can take a 3 day weekend and play non-stop!
There will be everything you have come to love about the game as well as ZOMBIES in the initial release. That’s right, you won’t have to download a separate patch (cough cough – CoD Advanced Warfare – cough cough) just to get those walking dead in your game! This go around will also feature an XP Progression System when going up against the undead.
The campaign in Black Ops III will drop players into a world set in the future in which bio-tech and cybernetics have formed a new Black Ops soldier. New weapons, new abilities, new systems, all of these add up to new ways to play multiplayer.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be available for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. So far there is no confirmation that it will be available for the Playstation 3 or for the Xbox 360.
Now.. on to the screen shots!
ACTIVISION, CALL OF DUTY, CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS, and stylized roman numeral III are trademarks of Activision Publishing, Inc. All other trademarks and trade names are the properties of their respective owners.

What more is there to say?
Here you can find all of the trailers for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens as well as a little bit of a breakdown…
I present them in the order in which they are released.
Teaser Trailer #1:
All seems quiet at first. A hushed whisper tells us that there has been an awakening… Have you felt it?
Then we are thrust into chaos with Finn (John Boyega) in StormTrooper suit presumably on the planet Jakku.
What’s cool is the dirt! Yes, I said ‘dirt’! Remember Episodes I, II, and III? How CGI they looked? Now consider
Episodes IV, V, and VI. Remember how used and work everything looked? Yeah. That’s what this stormtrooper suit reminds me of.
It’s got dirt on it.
Chaos builds as we see a new droid type, looks like an R2 head on a beach ball. This little guy is called BB8.
Oooh man, next we see lots of StormTroopers in a horror type setting. It really reminds me of the book Death Troopers (a zombie tale set in the Star Wars universe), written by Joe Shreiber. Of course the StormTroopers here visually look different (and that’s okay – this new movie takes place 30 years after Jedi after all!).
Next up we see Rey (Daisy Ridley) ride away into the desert on some kind of large speeder. She appears to be in a hurry…
X-Wings across a lake!
A new bad guy! Wait.. does his lightsaber have a crossguard? That will never work..
The Falcon! YAAAA HOOOOOO!
and a faint sound of a lightsaber…
Watch the Teaser Trailer here:
Teaser Trailer #2:
Released on April 16th we are given a fair amount more to work with.
We open upon a desert planet (again we suspect it is the planet Jakku). A speeder is moving across in the distance (is that Rey from the 1st teaser?). It passes a crashed X-Wing and a crashed.. oh holy crap… that’s a crashed Star Destroyer!
Vader’s Melted Mask! Okay, so does this part take place shortly after the funeral pyre at the end of Jedi? Oh man, I can’t wait until December!
More x-Wing fun across the lake.
More bad guy with strange hilted lightsaber.
More Rey, Finn (no longer in stormtrooper outfit), and BB8.
What’s this? Who is that?
Wait! A TIE Fighter is attacking it’s own?
Chrome Trooper! AAHH!!
Okay, the Falcon just flew INTO that crashed Star Destroyer!
“Chewy, we’re home.” I cried.
Okay, wow.. Chewy hasn’t aged a day, but Han?
