Buffy on Call of Duty: Black Ops?

In the newest expansion pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, the user may play as a slew of characters such as Freddy Kreuger, Danny Trejo (from "Machete"), and Michael Rooker (from "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" and "The Walking Dead"). The expansion, Escalation, taps into our favorite pastime by allowing players to kill zombies! The map called "Call of the Dead," which was inspired by George A. Romero (pretty much the inventor of the modern zombie), is the only map on which the enemies appear as zombies. But wait, there's more... Players on this map can use the aforementioned characters of various horror movies in addition to a character called Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar). You may or may not remember her from the last few weeks of class. She is sort of a big deal, and a highly-anticipated addition to the game-playing experience. Furthermore, it appears that you wont be limited to a wooden stick as means of killing as Buffy is seen wielding a pistol in the promo video. Also, the vampires are much more realistic and actually provide a formidable enemy to exterminate over and over again.


  1. If this isn't the most masculine form of Buffy, then I don't know what is.

  2. I actually saw this recently on a random website and thought it was a joke. This Buffy revival is going to be a huge selling point for COD and I am astounded they made this genius maneuver. I never enjoyed the Zombie levels as much as the next COD fan only because I felt going up against the computer got lame real fast. I always preferred to just play online, but with this new character addition I may be second guessing my loyalties just to see Sarah Michelle Gellar wield an M16 instead of a crossbow.

  3. This map is so sick... I am buying it as soon as I get home for the summer, I love the zombie mode on COD: Black Ops. That's actually pretty much all I play on that game because the rest of the game is so lackluster compared to COD: Modern Warfare 2.

    This trailer reminded me of the poorly made B-grade horror movies that I've watched or even like some of the parodies made by like Quentin Tarantino's "Grind House."

  4. I am a die hard fan of the CoD franchise and was unimpressed by Black Ops and chose not to buy it. Of course I've played nazi zombies quite a few times and have always enjoyed it (including back during World at War) but it was not enough of a selling point for me to get the game as a whole. However, my stepfather does have game and now I can't wait to get back home from summer and play with Buffy (sexual innuendo? maybe).
