“You know, we’re on the development side, so we don’t really have much to do with the business aspect of it, but we just strive to give players the most value that we can possibly give. If you look at how many hours – in some cases, hundreds of hours – for some players of entertainment they get, I think it’s an incredible value. We’ve had three DLC map packs for the fans within about six to seven months of launch, which is a record for us. I think it’s incredible, and everyone’s really excited about the fact that we can support a game for that long and keep the fans interested.” – Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer boss Dan Bunting speaking to Gamasutra on why map packs cost 1200 MSP each.

Quick Quenchers: Treyarch Devs “Weren’t Always Good” At Multiplayer Maps

“We’re very concerned about pathing through the map. You want to make sure players can navigate the map in a consistent fashion. You want your main paths, to say, be wider than your flanking paths – tell a vocabulary in a visual story there. And what we’ve learned over time is that we weren’t always good at that. [But] we’ve gotten better at that and it’s become just part of our D.N.A. … So you’re seeing in the map packs this evolution of our thinking, and Annihilation represents exactly what we’re talking about here. … I think anything Treyarch does long-term will be more cognizant of it.” – David Vonderhaar, Black Ops design director speaking on the company’s ability.

Games Thirst Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops


It has been a year since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and that can only mean one thing. It is time for another Call of Duty. This time around, Treyarch has regained control of the reins for this year’s installment of Call of Duty. They are known for creating Call of Duty set in WWII, but this time they have moved the fight to the Cold War era.

The story is centered on the character of Alex Mason who, at the beginning, is strapped to a chair being interrogated. A series of numbers that he cannot explain haunts him, and it is these numbers that the people who are interrogating him want to know about. The story plays out through a series of flashbacks that reveal a little more about  the story each time they occur. They finally lead up to a moment in which you have to stop the release of a gas called Nova 6, which could devastate the United States.
