By Joel Taveras

November 12, 2010

If you couldn’t guess it from the title, our main topic this week is Call of Duty: Black Ops. Not only does it mark the biggest entertainment launch in history with 360 mil in sales but it also has, wait for it… an actual storyline that you can follow! Yes, crazy, I know. Although our review is still in the works, we do offer some insight as to what we think of the newest title in the series, so far. For our second topic we discuss history in games and how it helps to create much stronger IPs. We round out the show with some talk about why certain genres of games attract us to certain consoles and why. Overall, another good show so make sure to give it a listen!
