Shooting zombies

By | September 7, 2021

So. Recently-ish I’ve been “getting into” the latest Call of Duty (Cold War) on XBox which is not something I thought I’d be saying, and having spent a fair bit of time getting shot in multiplayer (my Kill Elim/Death ratio is not great, but I’m wicked at objective capturing) recently I’ve been getting into the latest Zombie mode, and apparently getting into it in a big way, as I’ve just dropped *mumble* quids on the several-years-old Black Ops 3 (Christ, and supposedly it’s Nintendo that holds value) and its suite of zombie stuff. For the uninitiated, you and your team must try and survive increasingly difficult waves of zombies, using the earned credits to make your gun more powerful and buying perks and that, but if shooting things wasn’t fun enough, where the interest for me lies is that most of the maps made have some sort of light-puzzling task-based narrative quest which you can totally ignore if you want but come with their own rewards if you can see them through to the end, which you have to do whilst taking on the horde.

I sort of hate myself for it, but I’m in now.

I feel like there ought to have been a zombie episode of Ed Hall paintball-em-up X-Fire, but I don’t think there is as far as I know.

    Basically I had no idea about the quest stuff until some randoms I had been playing with started doing tasks I hadn’t seen anyone else do before, and now I’m down the rabbit hole pretty much.

    Whatever happened to Ed Hall?

    Also, have you seen Josh Gad’s recent tweets about UK Gameshows?

    He’s seen Play Your Cards Right & Bullseye!

      On PYCR: “Yo UK, this show is BONKERS. What the hell am I watching?!”

      Would have thought he’d be familiar with Card Sharks…

      On Bullseye: “I truly don’t know where to begin. Holy shit. I’ve never been this mesmerized by television in my life. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever been this mesmerized by anything in my life. I feel like a cobra listening to a flute.”

      I eagerly await his reaction to Big Break.

      Ed Hall’s a commissioner for Comedy Central these days, I gather! Or was anyway. Something like that.

      I have indeed been following Josh Gad’s bemusement with amusement.

        Today I learned Ed Hall claims to have created Mr. Shake Hands Man from Banzai.

        What a smashing bloke!
