I was ready to pass on the next DLC until I saw the Zombie level..
Let's get right to what you want to see.
I could have done with out the extra DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops, then I saw what they had planned for the zombie mode. To be able to play as Robert Englund had me sold, but then you add Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Danny Trejo. It'll be out for Xbox 360 May 3, and PS3 will see it about a month later, and again it'll be $15. So now if you have both DLC packs you're looking at around $100 put into this game. Hopefully we'll have PSN back by then.
I know most of you are done with Call of Duty, but does this make you want to play it any? Let's Hear what you think.
Here are the Achievements
So far these look like better new levels than what we got for first strike. But 360 users are playing it now and for us waiting for the PS3 release and for PSN even.
But I think the rest of you are waiting for the good stuff.
Call of the Dead
Robert Englund had me sold.

There are so many great series that are worth replaying or trying out if you've somehow missed them, Breath of Fire has a spot on that list.
If you were a fan of the series you'll be hyped to see it showing up on PSN August 16th. If not read on and you might decide to give it a try.
Your main character it Ryu, a badass who can transform into dragons. He is out to stop this immortal evil emperor from destroying the world.
Like any good jrpg you will collect a team that brings their own flavor to the fight. And these characters are more than just canon fodder. You also get a great soundtrack that is more than just background music. The score is epic and helps you get into the story as it builds. The graphics are pretty dated so maybe if we are lucky they'll clean them up a bit. But this game is a must buy and hopefully they will put a fair price on it.
I hate that the computer I'm using now has so many issues because I really want to get more into the story, but it's crashed on me twice already.
So if you are a fan of rpgs and have that chance buy it Jimmy!
What good are a ton of guns if they are all the same? Borderlands 2 is going to make sure you know what you're packing.
In Borderlands there were countless gun that you could find and use. Some had special powers, like the wave gun, others were kind of generic. But they all had a brand, could you tell them apart? This time around Gearbox wants to be sure you know who made your gun.
The Tediore guns seem to have a special style to them. When you run out of bullets you can throw it like a grenade, or leave ammo in for a bigger explosion. The gun will then respawn. Now that sounds like fun to me.
The Bandits will also be in the gun business this time around. You could be sporting a bottle instead of a scope or a screw instead of your sight. But they are going to offer the biggest clips.
Torque is going to bring the heavy hitters. These guns are all about a show of force.
These are going to be the sleek guns according to Gearbox, to me that means silencers and and assasin feel.
Jakobs should be a name you remember from the first game. This time around they will be bringing the old school guns and lots of damage.
Dahl is another familiar name. They will be offering up more realistic guns along the lines of what you see in your average FPS.
And Hyperion brought us claptrap so you can expect that to be the style you have.
Vladof will be hooking you up with the guns that are all about the fire rate. And as an added bonus they will sport minigun barrels.
With this much thought being put in for your guns my hopes are even higher for the rest of the game. They are taking the time to be sure that each maker has their own look and feel. And with any FPS your gun choice defines your play style. Will you be the guy who picks of the enemy from a distance or do you want to blow them apart? Borderlands 2 will let you play your way. Are you a spray and pray player or a gunslinger? You're covered. And of course I can't help but to hope we will see even more alien tech. Did you have a favorite gun from the first game or did you just use whatever you could find?
Don't be a jimmy. Let's hear what you hope they reveal next. Maybe what gun maker you are going to be looking for. What other types of characters do you want? We already know the Berserker will be able to do some double weilding what other perks do you want?

Id Software has brought us a decent horror FPS, but the timing could have been better.
If you are a fan of horror based first person shooters Rage is a game you should check out, when you get the time. FPS games have flooded the market all year long but right now we have Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 right around the corner it's hard to justify buying another shooter at the moment. And if you look at the pile of recent releases there is a good chance you have picked up a few other fps recently. I personally could wait until Borderlands 2 comes out to buy another shooter.
The driving bits are kind of fun and if you are on the four wheeler you can get launched off by running into something, that was great for a laugh. But you do have some races you must do to get through the story and some give you weapons. This is also available for some multiplayer action online.
I only played for a few hours but the weapons didn't seem to have much variety (Borderlands has spoiled me) you start with a pistol, later you pick up a shotgun, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle you can buy, and this wicked crossbow. You can upgrade the weapons a little, but from the looks of it they are just minor tweaks. With the pistol you also get a couple choices of ammo, so later in the game you could get more choices.
Overall the game was pretty fun, the story feel a little generic, you are a survivor that was lost in time who wakes up to a world in turmoil. It's not bad, just not original. But in most cases if you are playing a fps it's because you want to shoot shit and there is plenty of that. You do get some boss fights mixed in to give you some variety.
So my official verdict is Rent It, but if they could have slipped it into a gap between games it could have got a buy it.
