Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is available from midnight on Tuesday 13th November, 2012. What better way to get ready for the game than a little Road to Commander series from the original Black Ops?
Black Ops RTC Episode 27: Questions (old school commentary)
For the first time in this RTC I am playing solo and drop into a game of Capture The Flag on Havana. Despite going HAM in the first round we got completely dominated, losing three to nothing. Things get a little better in the second and we sneak a win, taking the match into extra time. There are no prizes for guessing who pipes up for the game winning flag capture in O/T.
It is possible you’ve seen this video before as I used it to ask the question “are gaming headsets uncomfortable?”. If you’d like to read more about my research on this topic, please head on over to this poll.
What is an RTC?
A Black Ops RTC, or Road To Commander, is a video series in which every game from level zero to level fifty is posted. For my own RTC, games will be posted with a mixture of commentaries, live commentaries and live team communication.
How I record Black Ops gameplay
Black Ops has a built in Theatre Mode but unfortunately it only allows you to upload clips up to 30 seconds in length. If you want to start recording full length Black Ops videos you’re going to need a capture card.
There are loads of capture cards out there but I went for the AVerMedia Game Capture HD because it has built in storage, which means there’s no need to hook up my PS3 to a computer when I play. To see how it works, check out this review by JSHD.
My set-up for recording commentaries and live team communication is pretty simple. I just plug the USB portion of my headset into a laptop and choose an appropriate recorder.
