So a friend of mine wants to assist me with ze blogging so I will post most of the stuff he emails me onto here unless it really sucks. So comment and let him know how he is doing! Don't be afraid to be harsh, he has thick skin; at least he better if he is going to subject himself to the wrath of the internet!
"Microsoft’s Larry”Major Nelson” Hryb brought the news on his weekly Podcast. This map pack introduces 4 new multiplayer maps and 1 new Zombie map. Coming February 2nd you better have 1200 Microsoft points ($15).
Here are a few details from Treyarch’s Dan Bunting:
Discovery - Antarctic German research station, abandoned from World War II.
Kowloon – Inspired from the single-player campaign based off of Kowloon city in China. It's a rooftop map.
Stadium – Hockey rink in northeastern United States.
Berlin Wall – Takes place at Checkpoint Charlie. Is a battle between East and West Berlin.
Ascension - Zombie map.
No word on when first strike will be available for PC or Ps3. At E3 2010, Microsoft announced it signed a multi-year agreement with Activision that will see all future Call of Duty map packs released first on Xbox 360 through 2012. Go Xbox!"

(Lol Bryan you didn't actually write that you just copy pasted so don't put by your name. Here is the link to the article peoplez http://xboxlive.ign.com/articles/114/1140985p1.html.)
Rabidmoose's Thoughts: I may just be spoiled by Valve's awesomeness at releasing free DLC or Counter Strike's plethora of community made maps but paying for map packs slightly annoys me. To me five maps just isn't worth $15 bucks, I never bought the map packs for MW2 and still managed to enjoy the multiplayer immensely. I probably will never purchase this.
Also, the part about it being released on Xbox first, WTF Activision WTF; so PC gets the shaft....what a surprise (Ps3 too don't hate me Ps3 guys). Why can't it just be released for all platforms at once? Do they think somebody will purchase another copy of the game or buy a new system just to play their fancy 5 new maps early? Le Sigh.
