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 55: Going to jail???
Without doubt, the most pointless game you will ever see in a Road to Commander series. I drop into what appears to be a booster lobby as EVERYONE in the game is killing themselves, spawning in and repeating over and over. I’ve seen this kind of thing in MW3 but the suicide is “rewarded” with massive XP. However in this game, no-one is getting any benefit from the constant suicides. Weird…
I manage to get the only kill of the game and then spend the rest of the time talking about an appearance in the Criminal Courts. As I type this I’ve already been so I can confirm I didn’t go to jail – which is obviously a good thing! On the contrary, I actually ended up with the best result possible. I’ll fill in the gaps in a future episode.
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.
