It looks like the new Black Ops is going to take place in 2025, the world having survived past 2012 to live in a future wonderland filled with drones and walking tanks.
It’s due out November 13th of this year, just in time to put the crunch on your holiday wallet and dominate your online fun. And that’s also a week after Halo 4 is supposed to come out which will make things very interesting on the Xbox 360. Which side will you pick in this battle? Call of Duty? Master Chief? Or both at the same time?
Lucasfilm and Twentieth Century Fox announced today the Star War series is set for September release on Blu-Ray.
The movies are scheduled to be sold in three different box sets. The big nine-disc package is advertised as featuring three discs of alternate and deleted scenes, among other special features, and is expected to retail for $139.99.
The original and prequel trilogies are also set to be sold in their own packages for $69.99 each.

Old Spice hit a viral goldmine with their commercials starring Isaiah Mustafa as the ultimate Old Spice macho man. Now Sesame Street has gotten into the act. Who says you have to be a kid to love Grover?
I played through Mass Effect 2 as a nice guy, so this clip showing Commander Shepard in full-on Jerk Mode let me know what kind of fun I missed out on.
I should also mention that it’s a sometimes violent, but utterly spoiler-filled, clip, too, in case you’re still trying to make your own way through the galaxy as either a friendly savior or a coldly ruthless space cowboy. But if you ever wanted to know how a recorded store endorsement could go horribly wrong, sit back and just wait for it. Shepard’s in top form here.
Funcom’s upcoming MMORPG, The Secret World, has sent over a trailer showing off what’s happening at Kingsmouth – a quaint little town where something nasty has happened like the dead coming back to walk the streets turning it into a smaller version of Raccoon City.
The first trailer for the upcoming film (June 11th) is out in the wild and it’s filled with plenty of crazy action. Former UFC fighter, Quinton Jackson, has stepped up to the plate with a mohawk as Mr. T’s B.A. Baracus and he actually does look the part. But that’s just another excuse for how possibly awesome this film could be. Liam Neeson as Hannibal? Sold.
As the year draws to a close, ad watching blog, AdFreak, pick 30 of the freakiest commercials to come out in 2009. Sony isn’t running the creepy baby ads anymore, but it’s in good company with this crop of creative ads that run from the chillingly eerie to those that bring their life lesson across with as much subtlety as a horror movie.
My favorite? I like the one for Parkinson’s myself, but the “don’t drink and drive” ad from New Mexico was hard hitting stuff.
Check them out after the link, but remember that quite a few other places outside of the US (like Europe) aren’t as shy about certain things so keep that in mind if you’re at work and want to watch a day in the life of a bodiless head.
