Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Summary
This won't come as a huge surprise, but former Panamian dictator's lawsuit against Activision over his appearance in Black Ops 2 has been dismissed.
Los Angeles Court Judge William H. Fahey threw the case out, a decision which defense attorney and former New York mayorcalled "an important victory" for free speech.
This story keeps getting stranger. Former New York mayor and current US attorney Rudy Giuliani will serve as co-counsel for Activision's defence against the lawsuit leveled by former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega over his appearance in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Giuliani issued a prepared statement saying; "What's astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it's absurd."
There are some stories which are just so bizarre and fascinating that you can't help but laugh. Former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega has launched a lawsuit against Activision accusing them of unlawfully using his likeness in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Noriega says Activision portrayed him as the "culprit of numerous fictional heinous crimes", and accuses them of "misuse (of his image), unlawful exploitation and misappropriation for economic gain".
Former Infinity Ward employees have spilled the redacted beans on the original Call of Duty's development back when the studio first formed. Medal of Honor was the first-person shooter King at the time.
Apparently Call of Duty was codenamed 'MOH killer', even though its initial design was similar to MOH: Allied Assault, which followed the "super-spy in WWII story" formula.
Better late than never - a term that strikes fear and angst into the heart of the PC gamer. Activision has now released the 'Apocalypse' DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops II on PC and PS3, ending exclusivity.
This is the final add-on featuring two new multiplayer maps, two "completely re-imagined" Black Ops maps, and Zombies map called Origins. It'll set you back $14.99 / £11.59 / €14.49.
