Call of Duty Black Ops long awaited take on Fortnight’s Battle Royal mode is launching its private beta September 10th and ends September 14th. Why is Activision launching this anticipated beta on a Monday? Most normal folks have to work or go to school during the week, so who is going to have time to really delve into this? I have a lot of issues with this year’s installment of my favorite franchise, but Activision sucks me in every time with their continued support of everything I do. So, I’m back baby! The kind folks at Activision gave me 10 codes to give away. Check out my feeble Beta Gameplay and initial Impressions below.
Update – added full Beta Details Included after the break.

I’m really looking forward to UBI-Soft’s upcoming Far Cry 5 game. While all the early game play footage looks a little suspect, I’m still looking forward to playing it. I love the idea of setting a game like this in the deep South. I’m not a figurine collector, but even I admit, this new Far Cry 5 collectible from Ubi-Soft looks really good.

I always thought the Telltale series of games would be great on the Nintendo Switch. I can now test this theory. Batman: The Telltale series will be hitting the Nintendo Switch, November 17th. I played the game on the PS4 Pro and loved it, so I’ll be revisiting it this weekend. I really wish they released both the first game and the 2nd one in one mega disk or at least at the same time. The first Batman game is already over a year old and I don’t own the 2nd one. Grrr… However the folks at Telltale threw a switch code for this one my way.
