Call Of Duty games are no strangers to padding their games with people who are more famous and therefore better than the rest of us peasants, allowing us the opportunity to live vicariously through celebrities. If they were blood-thirsty killers hellbent on saying nasty things about your mom and her reproductive organs, that is. The very first Black Ops game included Gary Oldman, while its sequel tapped the talent of the best Batman, Michael Keaton. The third Black Ops game also features some of that star power, this time in the form of a sportsy person.
And by sports-person, I mean American Football Seattle Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch, who looks like he can easily drop-kick me into orbit, so I’m not going to make fun of him. According to an interview in ESPN Magazine, Lynch will be present in in Black Ops 3, posing as a nefarious character.
Lynch explained that he traveled to the Activision motion-capture studio to record a scene, which involved the player encountering him and his posse in a Singapore bar, with a fight quickly breaking out. “You’re shooting up everything but always fighting for a bigger picture,” Lynch explained.
The whole game is Beast Mode.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love the single-player side of Call Of Duty. Folks can knock the 4-6 hour campaigns all they want, but I honestly ain’t got time for a 20 hour experience. And the thing is, what Call Of Duty can showcase in those few hours, is actually pretty damn impressive.
I’m most likely in a minority however, but considering that I can get a solid weekend of action in before spending the rest of my time in the multiplayer, always makes me happy. Dammit, stop laughing at me. I swear, It’s like telling people that I read FHM for the witty articles.
