Black Ops 2 Interactive Trailer

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

The history of warfare has been one of innovation, trying to keep one or two steps ahead of your enemy in weapons and technology; anything to give your side the edge on the battlefield.  The 20th Century alone saw dramatic leaps in war fighting technology, from the individual riflemen to nuclear weapons. What does the future have in store for the battlefields of the 21st Century?   Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 explores just that with a six part mini documentary embedded in the reveal trailer. At any point in the trailer you can stop the action and have future war expert and author of Wired for War, P.W. Singer  discuss the progression of technology in warfare, its uses, and what happens when the smart weapons a nation uses malfunction or –even worse- are hacked and turned against their former masters. Lt Col Oliver North USMC Ret and Major Alex Brown, U.S. Army Special Forces, weigh in with the current level of battlefield tech, its uses and capabilities. It’s really an innovative and interesting way to learn what the near future holds, not only for warfare but society in general.

Check out the interactive trailer here.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hits 13 Nov 2012.


Charlene: CoD Black Ops 2 and PSF Russia

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

I’m a fan of the Call of Duty franchise of games and of FPS Russia, the guy on You Tube with the fake Russian accent and all those wonderful toys, to quote The Joker from 1989s Batman.  Recently I was watching one of FPS Russia’s recent videos on an armed RPV quadrotor  named ‘Charlene’ when I had an ‘ah ha’ moment realizing where I had just seen another armed RPV quarotor  with the name ‘Charlene’ scratched into it. Anyone else think we might hear someone sounding a lot like FPS Russia in Black Ops 2?

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is slated for release on 13 Nov 2012.


Thank you, Avatar Toy Armory

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

In January Microsoft banned Avatar firearms from XBOX Live. Now with the Avatar Toy Armory on the Avatar Marketplace you can give the digital you a little something to fight the forces of evil with 22 different weapons from Voltron’s Blazing Sword to what appears to be an AK-74 with an M203 grenade launcher mounted on it.  In the mood for some dual wielding action?  The Toy Armory has you covered whether you want to show off your skills with dual Lightsabers, pistols, or Micro Uzis. The only drawback, all the real world weapons are colored like Nerf guns.  Oh, well I suppose if FPS Russia can pull it off, so can you.

The Avatar Toy Armory is available on XBOX Avatar Marketplace. Prices range from 160 to 400 Microsoft points. Don’t bother asking me how much that is in real money because I have no frak’n idea.


Take Aim at the Enemy of Humanity

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Note: TFB is happy to share this article from Red2Alpha, long-time reader of Tactical Fanboy and ardent Cylon-hater.

I have stated publicly that I will not rest until the Cylon threat to humanity is recognized for what it is: A slow, creeping plot that if not stopped will eventually see the human race reduced to near extinction and for those who do survive, a life of slavery to their silicon based overlords.  Do your part to prevent humanity from entering that dark night by sharpening your skills with this Cylon Centurion target poster.
