Enjoy Double XP for Call of Duty: Black Ops This Weekend – Only on PS3

Welcome_to_Nuketown

Leo Tolstoy once said, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” Ask any PlayStation gamer who missed out on the Call of Duty: Black Ops double XP weekend a few weeks ago, and they’ll tell you: Leo knew what he was talking about. While other platforms soaked up the extra experience points, PS3 gamers had to hang in there while PlayStation put everything in order behind the scenes. In cases like that, patience isn’t a virtue — patience is a pain in the butt.

As the double-XP date loomed nearer, more and more PlayStation gamers wondered if they’d be able to take part in the festivities, and Treyarch – developer of Black Ops – swore to fans that they would not be forgotten. This weekend, they’re quickly making good on that promise, with a double-XP period that lasts from this Friday, May 20th at 10am all the way through the weekend and beyond – the good stuff keeps coming until 10am on Tuesday the 24th. What’s more, that’s going to be even sweeter thanks to a Nuketown 24/7 playlist that’s being added just for the event. Nuketown is my favorite map because it’s small and chaotic – and the close confines often result in high kill counts, which can really push you to the next level of Prestige in a hurry during a bonus XP weekend. It’s a fast, intense map – but don’t let that stop you from uncovering some of Nuketown’s hidden secrets.

So if the two most powerful warriors are patience and time…well, you’ve been patient, and it took some time. This weekend, enjoy being the warrior.

and black ops, its a favorite among hackers and cheaters.i should be able to get my 64.00 back for this sorry attempt at a game.ill never buy another cod game for as long as i live.and that whole host migration thing is f’in rediculous,activision and treyarch should be shot for running junk servers like that.bottonline activision has failed again in my book.

    Host migration happens when someone who is hosting backs out of the game, loses connection, or something like that. It might be an inconvenience but if the host didn’t migrate, the game would simply end, right then and there — which would be a heck of a lot worse. It’s the nature of peer-to-peer games, and a lot of different titles use this system.

    So…I agree, it’s sometimes a drag. But once I understood why it was there, it bugged me less.

    Escalation is confirmed for PC on June 3rd, but its PS3 arrival will depend in part on when the PlayStation Store returns. I know they are working on that as we speak, so hopefully it will be that same date — but to be clear, no date has been announced for the PS3 release of Escalation yet. Don’t talk yourself into something if it winds up not being the 3rd.

I think Treyarch should make a game solely based off the story behind Zombies mode on World at War/Black Ops. You could still slap Call of Duty on the title too. Call it something like “Call of Duty: Zombies!” I’m sure it would sell tons, because a lot of people including myself want to know all there is behind the zombies, element 115, and most of all what each characters role in the story is. Since the game in its entirety would be about zombies, Campaign mode would most likely reflect the back story as well as the story thus far in Black Ops, and beyond. Also available would be Co-op Campaign, and multiplayer. Multiplayer wouldn’t be like it is on all the other COD games. This feature would be the “survive wave after wave of zombies” kind of deal. One thing that I would want to be able to do is the ability to level up.

By leveling up, you would receive various benefits. Start with more cash in the beginning of the game, gain 1 clip of ammo for each gun you have after each round, unlock the ability to have 3 guns, ability to start the game with a different pistol(4 total, each varying in attachments/power), more money per kill, after each round gain money = to # of zombies YOU killed x 10, and buy things for 25% off(Including perk machines and guns off the wall, but excluding the box). Map packs would consist of 5 new zombie levels to play on, or 3 new zombie missions and 2 zombie maps. Anyways, those are just my ideas since I love playing zombies a lot on Black ops. The least they should do is add leveling in zombies on Black Ops. Have it separate from multiplayer leveling of course, but with some of my ideas as far as things you unlock. But, I can’t make Treyarch do something they don’t want to do ^_^!

    One of the reasons people are excited about Nuketown 24/7 is that it’s a small, chaotic map with very high kill counts. Playing Nuketown (and doing well on it) is one of the best ways to gain levels quickly…if you can stay alive. Which I generally cannot. :)
