Five Wishes for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (plus a Retrospective Look at Black Ops)

By now, many of you will have heard the news from other publications, but here it is: Call of Duty Black Ops 2 will be formally announced on May 1st during the 2012 NBA playoffs on TNT.  Exactly how it will be done, I’m not sure (betting on a teaser trailer), but it’s still exciting […]
