Black Ops Zombies Tips

When it comes to Call of Duty: Black Ops, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the “zombies” are the funnest part of the game, for me anyway.

There are many myths around the internet saying that there are many causes for the RROD – And that is true to a certain extent. The three red lights on the console mean “General Hardware Failure” so there could potentially, be many different things wrong with your console. One of the most frequently repeated Red Ring of Death stories is the one about solder.
