Looks like Treyarch is continuing to go down the paranoid scenario rabbit hole. After the numbers station and brainwashed sleeper cells that were the centerpiece of Black Ops' story, Treyarch's going with a pretty simple premise that has to have been pondered in our high-tech culture - What happens if we become dependent on technology for our defense, and the bots get hacked? As someone who's always preferred Treyarch's approach to the series over Infinity Ward's (You may skin me alive now :laugh: ), I gotta admit to being mad curious as to how this is going to turn out.

Oh, and horses. In 2025.

    well MasterChief to tell you the truth horses have made a comeback for military units who travel through areas that are way too rough for any vehicle to drive through. To put this in context some troops in Afghanistan used them to get closer to the Taliban strongholds in the mountains so I don't think it's that far fetched in a military game.

    A Call of Duty reveal? Must be spring time.

    Crysis 3 has bows and arrows vs. nano-suits. Looks like retro-future is the new buzzword.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    You aren't alone there, I thought the first Black Ops was far better than any of the Infinity Ward games.

    You'd think bows would be retro as all hell at this point, but apparently there's still advancements to be made and technology to be developed in the area.

    I can see where a quiet bow like this would be ideal for many military situations, especially jungle environments where you wanna kill some dudes without being noticed while not carrying a bulky sniper rifle.

    I would like to sock whichever Activision executive thought using Oliver North to promote the game was a good idea.

    I'm thinking back to when BioWare said they wanted to capture the Call of Duty demographic, has it now become absurd enough that Activision want the Mass Effect demographic?

    I will LOL if they release a Call of Duty with dialog wheels and character skill trees.

    Well, it's been a good long while since Iran-Contra, and from what I understand, Ollie's going to actually be doing some advisory work for the 80s flashback levels.

    That said, I gotta agree that there had to be someone better they could have asked for help from...

    Man, no one asked where the Contras were getting their money when they were saving the planet from aliens.

    Funny that they are basically using a convicted war criminal to promote the game, however there isn't to many more people who lived through the 80's black ops dealing then Olly North, I think its actually a pretty cool idea. I LOVED the original Black ops for the cheesy cold war 1960's setting and to have the same thing move over to the 1980's, I am down with that.
