Daily News - 1st May 2012 - Black Ops 2 Official Trailer!, Skyrim Kinect Patch Released, New Powerhouse Graphics Card and More!

Black Ops 2 Happening Fo Sho

We have confirmation, and it's what the internet had already figured out: Black Ops 2. In fact, by the time you read this the trailer will have already been shown on American TV (I'll update this story with it as soon as I'm able). The game will supposedly take place in a "near-future" setting, with the pre-order page for the game reading:

"Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 propels players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare"

So basically, from the screenshots, expect flying mini-robots of death and massive walking tanks. COD fans rejoice!

EXCEPT HEY, GUESS WHAT, THEY JUST RELEASED THE TRAILER AS I WAS TYPING THAT ABOVE SENTENCE! SO HERE'S THE TRAILER! LOOKS LIKE CALL OF DUTY MEETS TERMINATOR! GET PUMPED!

Skyrim Patch Lets You Shout At Your TV Constructively... NOW!

Wow, that trailer reveal kinda threw me for a loop... Right, yes, Skyrim. This patch was officially announced a week or so ago and promises to let you cast Shouts, sort your inventory or whip out a particularly fierce weapon at a moment's notice. it actually looks like it works really well, and they've made it very intuitive things that you can use it for. A trailer detailing some of the things is below, and a PDF of the complete list of commands can be found here.

Geforce Reveal Their Newest Card... It's $1,000

I'll be honest here, I don't know as much about graphics cards as I'd like, but what I DO know is that it's well documented that you can almost always find a sick graphics card with near-comparable capabilities to a far more expensive card, in fact, I'm sure there are people out there who make good money off of testing cards against cheaper ones and advising which cheaper card is just as good as the expensive one. $1,000 is a fucking shitfuckload of money, and I'll be damned if I'd ever pay for that, but Nvidia will try and sell you on it anyway. If you wanna read the reveal article you can do so here. Nvidia say that it's "not a graphics card for everyone". That's because most people don't have infinite money.

....It does look rather nice though. Damn! They've got me!

And finally...

Skyrim First DLC Announced, No Details Yet

Other than a picture of a guy with glowing eyes, all we know is the DLC's title: Dawnguard.

Midnight Purple 3DS Coming

It looks fricking lovely, though it's still a 3DS... Shame that.

That thing looks maybe even sexier than that graphics card. Om nom fucking nom!
