Sony has promised that this release date is cast in stone and will release this time, at the end of the year. For this week, COD: Black Ops is released a year after MW2.

Art & Exhibits: Week of Nov. 12

The abstract landscapes of D. Stewart Moore are on exhibit through Nov. 30 in the mezzanine of the 'Tis Art Center and Gallery, 105 S. Cortez St., Prescott. Moore began painting with his father, an accomplished artist in his own right, when he was young. During a tour of duty with the U.S. Army in Italy in the late 1960s, Moore had the chance to visit that country's major cities and see the works of the great masters. It was the beautiful landscapes of that region that inspired his work today, he says. Moore will be on hand from 5 to 7 p.m. today for a reception.
