Black Ops 2 Sells 1 Million in First Day at GameStop

According to GameStop, Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sold over 1 million copies, quickly positioning the game to break records for the well-known retailer.

"'Black Ops II' is shaping up to be our biggest game launch of all time," Tony Bartel, president of the Grapevine, Texas-based chain, said yesterday in an e-mail. "GameStop sold more than 1 million units worldwide during our midnight launch period."

Dear me, Grapevine, Texas-based chain, sounded very weird for a minute. Don't ask me why.

Anyway, perfect timing, Activision, as always. Then again, people would buy CoD games as a substitute for water and bread (I'm sure there are places in the world where they do that).

Yea, they're called sheep for a reason. The next Call of Duty in November 2013 will sell a lot of copies as well... same with November 2014, etc.

Actually, I do have to give credit where credit is due here. They did a good job. Not a _great_ job, but a good job. The game's fun, the story's reasonably engaging and - unique in a FPS - it actually changes based on what you do at several points in the game. Not just 'oh, you went this way so see a slightly different cutscene' but something you do early in the game can have an effect towards the end, or open up different sorts of optional missions (Which themselves are kind of fun - they harken back to the original days of Ghost Recon, when it was a strategy game rather than an over the shoulder shooter) Most of this you've seen before in other shooters, but not together in a _single_ shooter. And, the game's longer than average to boot without getting repetitive. So... yeah, I don't know that it's worth the hype, but it's certainly not a waste of time and money like the latest Medal of Honor.

Started playing it yesterday and it's fucking disgusting (and I don't mean PS2-era textures) - the game throws shocking imagery and animalisticly brutal scenes in your face, I was literally ashamed of playing it. This isn't fun anymore, this is becoming a platform for sadistic people to live their fantasies.
