Wii U version looks identical to the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions of the latest Call of Duty title.
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is a Wii U launch title and is available now for Nintendo’s new console. The guys over at Ninten2TV did a quick comparison between the Wii U and the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions of the game. And as expected, the games look nearly identical. Besides some color and contrast improvements on the Wii U, there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference. Call of Duty titles are known for delivering a very consistent look and experience across all systems, so it’s of no surprise that the versions look the same. Of course, the video doesn’t take into account that the Wii U has a GamePad controller with an additional screen that the console needs to render and support.

Hello everyone! As promised, a small review before I go to bed (school tomorrow). I have played to lvl 14 so far and I am greatly enjoying it and from what I can see on the chat channels, so is everyone else.
*Spoiler Alert* Let me just start out by saying that the scenery is breathtaking and the art style and colors are beautiful to say the least. The music really pulls you in and you feel one with the world. Blizzard has as usual outdone themselves and the results really show. The story starts out with you training to be a successful monk. Fighting is very fun with many new moves like high swipe kicks and fast punches that daze enemies and deal damage to whom ever is near you. I’ve seen a lot of crazy new enemies so far like giant rabbits, crazy monkeys that like to jump on our head and smack you around and small magical tree folk. After much questing and enlightenment you and your friends are asked to speak to one of the elders.
Your sent on a hot air balloon up into the clouds and away from land. As you fly away you then realize that you were on a giant turtle. The whole island is actually the back of a moving gigantic turtle. After speaking to him, he tells you he is weak and dying and asks that you remove a big splinter he has stuck in his back. As you swing around you see that the splinter is actually a huge Alliance airship that has crashed into the turtle’s side. It turns out the ship also had Horde prisoners on board as well.
After doing a few quests for each faction, your Panda friend Ji uses a Horde bomb to try and free the ship from the turtle’s side. The ship explodes and the turtle starts to lose alot of blood. Healers from both factions try frantically to stop the bleeding. At the same time they are attacked by creatures that have come up from the sea.
After the final battle, you go before your master and he asks you who you will be returning with, the Alliance or the Horde. This happens at about level 11-12.
I recommend the game to any WOW fan and any who might feel betrayed by blizzard. Give it a go, I’m sure you will enjoy it.
Well it’s finally here! How many are already playing World of Warcraft’s new expansion Mists of Pandaria ? What are your first impressions? I bought my copy today and will be giving a review after I play a through a few levels. Since this is WOW’s first neutral character, it will be a tough choice to make since I have characters on both factions and it is always fun to see alternate quests etc.. I’ll probably go with Alliance first just because I’m most familiar with that faction.
On to the contents. I purchased the regular box version but the digital purchase comes with a flying mount. I just like to hold the physical box in my hand, it’s just me.
Inside the box you will find 2 DVD disks, 3 Guest pass codes, 1 for Starcraft 2 and the other 2 for World of Warcraft. I do not know if this arrangement differs from box to box. You will also find a quick-start guide instead of the regular instruction booklet we are used to getting. This guide generally tells you what you need to do to add the game to your battle.net account, how to open a new account if you do not already have one and basically how to install the game and join the WOW community. It also contains a Mists of Pandaria notepad so you can write down all those important things you want to remember when you go shopping I guess, but it is nice to have as a collector.
