Game Fanatics Show Episode 11 – BLACK OOPS

by Charles PowersAugust 9, 2012

Welcome to episode 11 of the game fanatics show, brought to you by the new Mac OS, Snoop Lion. As you can tell from the title, yes, we show the Call of Duty: Black Ops II multiplayer trailer, and we go into our usual semi-sober analysis of the video. We are also joined by special guests, financial analysts Charlie King and Ronald Murphy who help shed some light on the financial states of some of the top video game companies. We also go over some of the more, non-financial video game related news, and close things out with a very interesting question.

Video Game News

Now….for financial news we go live to Charlie King and Ronald Murphy at the Game Fanatics studio

  • Sony lost 3.2 billion dollars, in other words, more money than most people will ever make or dream of making in their lives. Entire countries don’t even make that much. What the fuck.
  • On the green side, Activision-Blizzard posted a net gain of 1.8 billion, despite the fact that entire guilds are quitting the game at an alarming rate.
  • THQ also posted a net gain….by cutting their losses.

    Great episode guys, UniGen Engine looks amazing. I usually despise Treyarch’s CoD games but I will definitely be trying this one out. Now for the question, if my sex life had a video game title..hmm well I have three kids and my lady and I work opposite schedules so it would get a survival horror title called “When the kids are sleeping.” hahaha

    I know video game fanatics can be quite tenacious and downright intimidating when they’re not being pathetic. I wonder if this has ever effected game companies.

    because i hear that games like cod6 and guitarhero 5 that are huge are going to make a huge profit probably. There previous games are famous so im guessing that it might be a good choice b4 those 3months arrive. I’m 15 by the way. so is it a good idea to invest my money in activision or not, please tell me why or why not.

  • Adam

    I have a PS3 and a PC, i love activision games, which big ones are coming out this year?

  • Duke

    Just wondered if anyone knows the reason that steam are releasing the came “Call of duty modern warfare 2″ 2 days later than everybody else?

  • mmminja

    Note* This is really just as a joke. Here are my suggestions….

    ‘Dead and Loving it part 2′ starring The Undertaker and Lesley Neilson with Gilbert Godfrey as The Undertaker’s talking hat.

    ‘High Heels and Protein Shakes; The Glamazon’s Tale’ starring Beth Phoenix, Santino Marella, RuPaul, and Jamie Lee Curtis

    ‘Winning by a Nose; The Face of Hunter Hurst Helmsley’ starring HHH, Woodie Allen, and Adrien Brodie as ‘grown up Pinnocchio’

    ‘Overdressed and Overcompensatin” starring Chris Jericho, Chris Jericho’s 3 piece suits, Dane Cook, and William Shatner (music video by Nellie)

    ‘Supersize Me…..Again’ starring The Big Show, Rosie O’Donnell with Godzilla, Ronald McDonald, and Vicki Geurrero

    ‘Why the Long Face?’ starring Mickie James, Mickie James’ big face, Mr.Ed, and Eddie Murphy (as the voice of ‘Willie Nillie’ the loveable animated Horse)

    These movies will all go straight to DVD and will be found in the 3 dollar bin at Wal-Mart next to ‘Ghost Dad’ and ‘Cheaper by the Dozen 2′

    Modern Warfare 2 is expected to have 500 million dollars in sale in the first week.

  • DuckieM10

    It is so obvious now they are just using it as a cash cow rather than being innovative. This is ridiculous.

  • Roar me R

    Is there a date out yet from Activision about Modern Warfare 3? And are there any trailers or previews?

  • Jon P

    Be forced to offer refunds on the grounds that this game is not fit for purpose?
