Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 double XP weekend starts today

DLCentral Latest News Update

To get you all geared up for the Vengeance DLC pack, Treyarch has flipped the switch to allow double XP on all Black Ops 2 multiplayer modes this weekend. It starts today on June 28th (10am PST/6pm GMT) and ends July 1st (10am PST/6pm GMT) and you can drink it in on the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.


If you’re unfamiliar with this kind of event, let us explain. Every action you perform in Black Ops 2 multiplayer is rewarded with XP (eXperience Points), which gives you access to bigger and badder weapons and perks. If you play during the double XP you’ll grab extra points and level up quicker to open more of that deadly arsenal on offer. Easy.

But, looking at the glass half full, it is also true that in this manner we throughly enjoyed the pleasure of discovery, enthusiasm across the total reversal of the convictions that we have grasped the GamePad for the first time, addressing the 1-1 level, without imagining what would have been the beginning of an amazing journey …

Nintendo survival guide: 5 ways to save Wii U from being dead

Here are five ways Nintendo can save the Wii U from becoming dead in a variety of unfortunate and potentially fatal situations.

How Nintendo can save Wii U from… a bear attack


Bears are dangerous and can easily kill a Wii U with its hands and mouth. If a bear attacks a Wii U, Nintendo should stand its ground and make lots of noise – sometimes this will scare the bear away as long as the bear isn’t deaf or hard of hearing. Climbing a tree can also be a good idea, unless the attacking bear is a black bear, which is a type of special climbing bear, in which case it’s not a good idea.
