Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Launch

call-of-duty-launch

Last night, Call of Duty: Ghosts launched to the masses the world over, and it just so happens that there was a launch event in Johannesburg whereby the public could attend, which made things rather busy. Of course G3AR was there to attend the event in force with Valshen, Jarred, Garth, David and myself attending the event. Why you ask? Well, someone needed to show the crowd how to drink a beer or two… but we left that honour to Garth and David (as can be seen in the images below). Those lucky enough bagged some Limited Edition Call of Duty: Ghosts Monster drinks, which hosted a unique DLC code and there were some fantastic snacks… which Valshen and I got acquainted with.

The real star of the event was an 8-man LAN that saw participants battling it out in a game of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in their efforts to secure a Drift HD camera. After several rounds, the top eight players made their way to the final whereby they played a Call of Duty: Ghosts map – it was afterall midnight! The man victorious, we believe, goes by the name of Wade (we stand to be corrected) and walked away with his prize in awe of the onlookers.

All in all, a fun night catching up with fellow gamers and friends and there were some great refreshments to boot. Oh, and did we mention that David worked his magic with the promo ladies? Yes, never underestimate David.

Married to a gamer wife who kicks my ass at most shooters. I’m lover of all consoles. If it’s old or new chances are good I’m game to play it.

        • Ultra Adorable Best Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

      • marc

        That’s impossible. lol

  • Raidz

    I wonder what was the bigger hit, “DEM GIRLS” or the game. Now I’m glad there aren’t launch parties here ;)

  • Albertus

    Ghost looks like fun… looks like it has the full package..

    • Super Sensual Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

      Hehehe.

      • Albertus

        I felt rather meh a few months back after playing too much BO2 but I am all meh’d out now and lank excited for this game. I really want to play the Extinction mode.

        • Raidz

          FYI Albert, I told you Ghost SP isn’t 4 hours long! IGN says it’s 10! So whe

          • Albertus

            I’m about to watch a few reviews. What you are informing me about is making me a happy money. A happy monkey indeed. :-)

          • Gary

            10 hours? On normal difficulty?

  • Garrit4Ever

    Nice, well done for Monster SA for coming to the party, very cool

  • Trebzz

    I want David’s life this guy is my f*****g hero man :D

    • David Kozlowski

      All the gaming and partying man, its a hard life u wouldn’t want it trust me ;)

      • Trebzz

        Hard life no pun intended I hope? :P

    • Super Sensual Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

      No, you don’t trust me. I’ve seen what he gets up to at about 3 a.m everyday… You don’t want no part of that… None part of that, Dewey Cox. Get outta here, Dewey!

      • David Kozlowski

        Its actually 2 am ;) and is that a Scrubs reference ?

        • Super Sensual Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

          I watch for an hour before my eyes start burning. And no, it is a reference to Walk Hard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJQ35sJzRkE

          • David Kozlowski

            I forgot how brilliant that movie is :)

          • Super Sensual Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

            It is truly one of those obscure gems that deserves more than it got.

  • Albertus

    Winning this game will enable me to play Ghost with my clan soon. If I don’t win it then I will be benched in the reserve seats till I have the mula to purchase a copy… I will be one sad noob fragger… sad noob fragger indeed. :-(

  • David Kozlowski

    It was a fun night indeed, very much worth the hangover ;) and those promo girls O_O….

    • Super Sensual Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

      I’ll let you keep Catwoman if you hook a brother up with the blonde one, David.

      • David Kozlowski

        You would give up Catwoman just like that ?!? what if she’s reading this ??

        • Super Sensual Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

          Well, she’s been completely ignoring my calls, SMSs, Tweets, Twerks, friend requests — hell, she hasn’t even filed a restraining order — so I have to move on. I have to be strong and just… Just try and live strong, live hard… With Promo Girl #2.

          • David Kozlowski

            I think you broke her heart man :( but I wish u and promo girl #2 all the best ;)

          • Ultra Adorable Best Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

            You know what they say about Blondes. I think that our lives together will be full and rich. I shall take her to Level Four and she shall be all, “OOOOOOOH my god I love you!” And then stuff shall happen. Like cuddles and long walks on the beach… In Grand Theft Auto Online.

  • Garvin

    I once want to go to these gaming launch parties. It seems like tons of fun.

  • Die Jason

    Jarred at the launch of a FPS title? I smell blackmail.

    Going to the Mweb COD vs BF event this Friday in Cape Town, looking forward to seeing both titles in action!

    • Jarred

      David forced me to go man, he said he would convert me into a FPS fan, but all he really did was try to get me to go to Billy the Bums with him.

      I will say this though about David, his taste in women is exemplary (and that has nothing to do with the header image at all).

      • David Kozlowski

        Hahaha, great minds think alike man :) *fist bump*.

  • Robert

    Looks like they had fun!

  • Ryan

    Looks like peeps had tons of fun

  • Michelle

    No female gamers?

    • Ultra Adorable Best Action Friends: Batfan & Seaman

      A gamer is a gamer. Never should their sex grant them special titles. Never.

      • Michelle

        No-one mentioned titles.I’m saying there were no female gamers there.

        • David Kozlowski

          There were a few there, if memory serves …

        • Super Cool Super Adorable Nerd Buddies: Batfan & Seaman

          Well, “female gamer” is a title. “No females” would be a better use of words. And David, your memory serves right. There were definitely some ladies there… Blonde ladies…

  • marc

    Looking at the header pic this was quite a jol.

  • Jarred

    Was great to catch up with lots of gamers at the event. Hopefully more of you join us next time. I just couldn’t quite make it to 12:00 to see Ghosts in the end which was a pity.

  • Raidz

    Yay IGN gives it 8.8! Which means it’s probably closer to a 9.3 :) I’m so glad it has 10hours gameplay, knew they wouldn’t let me down. Now I’m waiting for g3ar’s review!

    • http://www.g3ar.co.za Dawid

      Sadly that’s going to take a little while as we only received it today :/ (Joys of being part of local media I guess)

  • Gary

    Now footage of the LAN?
    Aw man. I wanted to gauge their skills, and memorize their voices and faces. So when I meet them online, I can show them their asses.

  • connie

    wow. Promo ladies FTW!
