Map of Metal

I went to a Metal show last night at El Rio in the Mission. One of my compatriots told me about this site, the Map of Metal. It is a giant Flash website map that looks like something out of a board game like Risk or Axis & Allies. Each genre and sub-genre of metal represent a territory and linkages represent the heritage of the genre.

Thoughts on the First Strike CoD Black Ops map pack

Tagged:  

The first DLC map pack for Call of Duty:Black Ops came out earlier this week. Having played it a little, I would say that I really like the Berlin Wall map with the guard towers. Interesting choke points. Kowloon is frustrating but I think over time it will be fun once I figure out its intricacies.

Call of Duty Black Ops Patch released

Many gamers consider Treyarch-produced CoD franchise to be inferior to Infinity Ward counterparts. (I.E Modern Warfare 1 and 2 vs. World at War and Black Ops). However, one of the great things about Treyarch is they put a lot of effort into keeping contact with their legions of loyal fans. They have a Twitter stream, a well-moderated forum, and various other other social media channels.

Last week they pushed a substantial patch for XBox 360 and PS3. Of the list of new features, I like the addition offline “Practice Dummies” and the “Dolly Cam’. Although I personally wouldn’t take the time to go into the theater, I look forward to seeing some fine cinematic displays of 30-kill streaks on YouTube in the near future.
