We are just a mere 10-days shy of the next Activision mega-release. Yes sir, it’s November and for Activision that means it’s time to launch yet another Call of Duty shoot-em-up. This time in COD: Black Ops 2, events are set in the not-so-far-flung future. The game is throwing more gadgets and new features at the wall–something is bound to stick, hard and explode with body parts beautifully strewn all across your display screen.
