    Nice! Man I remember the good old days of the podcast…


  • mccalejk

    As much as Treyarch claimed to have listened to the community, I’m very surprised at the $15 price tag for the Black Ops map pack. I probably wouldn’t have bought it anyways… I cannot get into BOps


  • Spiraea22


    Something tells me this is Activision’s pricing, not Treyarch’s choice


  • I2ndShenanigans

    @mccalejk all pricing is set by the publisher. They are the ones that put the cash up to make the game so they determine the price at which the game is sold.


  • The Gh0sts

    is it just me or does this ep, like the last one, have a lot of digital noise from being a low res sound file?


  • CrazyCake

    Can’t wait for the COD Black Ops maps. nice show


  • r3dreck

    $39 trade back to amazon for COD:BO, bye bye you outdated and dull game, hello BF2:VET.

    Hey Major, just something I thought of while listening to the show. Pitch it to one of the programmers or Laura. The voice commands on Kinect seem to work excellently so why not use it to select stuff on the dashboard instead of hovering over items? I mean, if you think about it, you don’t “hover” your mouse over a selection on the computer. You hover AND click. Since the voice works great, you could hover the Kinect cursor over what you want to select and say something like “select” or something like that so make the selection. It would also be quicker than having to wait until the selection is made. All you guys keep up the great service that is Xbox Live =)


  • Telixion

    So awesome! Cannot wait! Keep up the great work Treyarch!


  • CryptoElite

    Thank you Major for sticking with MP3 at least for now. I’d use M4As if I could, and I will upgrade my player some day, but for now it’d be a huge hassle.


  • Max Limitz

    Regarding Xbox 101: I don’t recommend account recovery: I lost all my PGR3 concept cars and I had to acquire them again my driving races.


  • Vulak Aerr

    Let me be very clear: A plot-twist whereupon you end up playing as a zombie-killing JFK is not a spoiler. It’s just flipping stupid.

    Also, to developers everywhere: Enough with the freaking zombies already. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is sick to death of zombies appearing in shooters even when there’s no clear reason for it. Gaaah!


  • JoeCool314

    Vietnam will be SWEET!!!!


  • Aciidsneaker

    Thanks, for the update.


  • LOST Nr

    Gotta agree with The Gh0sts – this episode (and the previous one) didn’t sound very good compared to previous episodes (from a technical perspective, not content).

    Other than that: Another very enjoyable and funny episode – thank you guys and gal ^~^.


  • peachy001

    Not listened to the pod cast yet, but from the comments I see that the 1200 price point is holding. Not happy. Love black ops but massively regretted the modern warfare first map pack didn’t bother with the 2nd.

    @Vulak Aerr

    Wait wait wait, you took that as a PLOT TWIST TO THE STORY? And yes, you are the only one tired of easter egg zombie games inside FPS’.


  • Joecr

    For show 380 I had no issues playing the M4A show on either my Zune 30 or my Zune 120, which makes me think it is that the Windows 7 phones & Zune HD’s are to smart for their own good.
