Everybody loves donuts, especially those who love blowing shit up!

This week the Anvil rants on the week of sports — including the MLB All-Star game and the Roger Clemens mistrial — and King Baby Duck & Blueonic looks at the heavily-underrated Jim Carrey flick I Love You Phillip Morris and the recent price hikes at Netflix. Plus the Bastards are split in regards to the new Limp Bizkit album Gold Cobra, the demos for Catherine and Ms. ‘Splosion Man are put under the microscope and Blueonic reviews the new Annihilation pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The fun begins now on Episode 103: Annihilation By ‘Splosion!

Episode LXXII: Back In The ‘Nam…

The Bastards manage to pull themselves away from the Black Ops to bring you another fun episode.

This week the B3 crew gripes about Christmas coming too early, as well as the BS study that texting can lead to sex, drugs and alcohol. Plus they review the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops, and King Baby Duck shares his feelings about the new CSI: Fatal Conspiracy demo. Anvil gives his weekly sports report, and finish it all up with a few looks at Megamind, Grown-Ups and Jonah Hex.

Un-boxing the "Black Ops"

Wahoo, it’s finally here! I got Call of Duty: Black Ops, but the only thing that sucks is my Xbox died before I got a chance to try it. It’s a situation where it’s “Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink.” For your enjoyment, however, I present a video dealing with the un-boxing of the Prestige Edition.

Part One

Part Two

I have to say that the RC car included with the Prestige Edition is a fun little gift, especially for the person who loves Call of Duty. I suggest that if you have a certain someone — whether it be a friend, a loved one or significant other — to buy this for them so they can play around with the cool little RC car, along with getting the zombie maps and the cool little Avatar setup. Also since making these video’s I was able to go to King Baby Duck’s castle to play the new game on the Xbox. I’ve only been able to play the in-game, but I’m really impressed with the graphics. So far the storyline has been pretty crazy, so I can’t wait to finish it up and give my full report on the game A.S.A.P.

So if you have any questions or comments about Call of Duty, or just about the RC car, please do at the bottom of this article.

Holy Hell! Treyarch & Activision Release "Call of Duty: Black OPS" Multi-Player Trailer

Just when you think that Treyarch and Activision couldn’t come out with anything more, they go beyond the Call of Duty to bring you this crazy beast of a game. Looking from the new video that I obtain from the recent email of the multi-player trailer, it’s just absolutely mind-blowing.

(Please watch the video, because if you don’t you won’t understand what I’m saying!)

In the first part of the video you can see that they have created this special stationary camera (above) that can help you see around other areas that you wouldn’t normally be able to see. (Unless, of course, you had the set up from The Dark Knight, where he has the gun with the sticky explosives. Now just turn those into cameras, and it would be even sicker.) But I have to say with this tactical advantage you do have to put this in the right spots; otherwise wherever you put it it will be easy pickings.

Bottom pic: The Real crosbow gun the Tac 15

Now what’s cool about the gun they show in the video is that it’s an actual real gun. They have taken the AR -15 gun and slapped it on to a sick crossbow frame. That is just absolutely beautiful, especially for just target practice or hunting. Now to actually see it in the game makes me happy. When this game comes out I know that I’m going to be running around doing my Rambo scream left and right. The video footage itself makes it look like the warheads were actually exploding! (Video provided more info on this very sexy gun. Damn, do I wish I was in Ballistics!)

Top pic: The new way to back stab! If you get tired of throwing, you can just shoot it!
Bottom pic: The actual Spetnaz knife that’s used in combat. It contains a charge to shoot out the knife.

This beautiful piece of equipment is called a Ballistic Knife. Its sexiness was featured on the First season of Deadliest Warrior, where they had the Army Rangers go up against the Spetnaz. (I have to say that was one of the most interesting pair-ups to see battle one another.) This blade is devastating because people think it’s just a knife; until it shoots off, stabs you, and finally makes you let out a nice blood-curdling scream as you bleed out.

RC explosive (Hmm…why does that look so familiar?)

Now if you’re wondering why I’m showing the other little RC bang fuck your dead vehicle, it’s so no fucking noobs on Call of Duty can say “Oh man, that’s the first of its kind in video gaming!” Man do I hate ignorant people, but with that said this little vehicle that is shown in the game is an awesome add-on to Call of Duty: Black Ops. Yet I feel that if people are able to see that you can blow up people with that, they will just think that it’s probably only that powerful to kill only soldiers. I’m hoping that they did it correctly and made the blast strong enough to drive this under a tank and take it out.

Sniper Rifle (Not sure if it’s moving too fast for me, but it sure is sexy!)

With what I have shown you, hopefully it’s opened your eyes to what these companies can do to in order to find the most up-to-date technologies to put into the game. It certainly helps to make the gameplay that more intense. I’m just glad that I have the common knowledge to find the actual weapons that were shown in the game to you so that you can see that they actually exist (or have at least been in another game). The graphics have been getting better, which is impressive because they have been putting these last couple games on the same systems. Now a few things I can hope to see from the game is that they added the Israel Corner Shot weapon (as seen in the movie Wanted and the Discovery show Future Weapons), bigger maps and some newer interesting weapons that many of you haven’t seen to date. My suggestion may be to go and put the money down on Call of Duty: Black Ops if you haven’t already, since they usually have a setup for you to get to play a beta or demo of the game before it comes out.

Call of Duty: BLACK Ops

P.S. Here is more video on the PSE Tac 15 crossbow (which, if you got time to kill, is a seven-minute long promo), along with more videos of Call of Duty: Black Ops if you haven’t gotten to see them. Along with that I was showing you the main guns that were eye candy to me, since the other ones seemed like the same weapons that are often used in the COD series.
