Battlefield 4: First Impressions

Battlefield on a Heroic Scale
Battlefield on a Heroic Scale

After playing a dozen or so games of conquest on the Battlefield 4 open beta, I thought it appropriate to share my thoughts. Aside from your expected beta errors, glitches, and crashes I am impressed. Admittedly, my expectations were a little more tempered than they were for Battlefield 3, but regardless, BF4 has largely delivered. Early on I knew the beta would likely be Siege of Shanghai. Based upon the early videos of the map I expected it to be another one of the poorly thought out tiny maps we have grown so accustomed to in BF3. Upon playing the first game I was elated to see how wrong I was. Siege of Shanghai is a rich, dynamic, read on…

Save Your Headset

HeadsetNearly all of us have experienced that awful moment when you pick up your headset with plans to listen to that hot new song or some cat playing with a cotton ball on YouTube only to discover you no longer have sound on the right side of your head. For those lucky few who are smugly thinking “not me”, mark my words, the time is coming when you too will experience the disappointment of a failing headset. The dismay grows even worse as you realize the headset’s warranty, as many warranties habitually seem to do, ran out just last week. Before you resign yourself to coughing up the cash for a new headset, put your wallet back in your pocket, all is not lost just yet. Odds are good that you can significantly prolong the life of your headset with a little investigation and some careful repair work.

BF4 Commander Mode

E3 this year was a major landmark in gaming as the next generation of consoles were demonstrated to the world (sorry Wii U but you don’t count). We learnt that a lot of new games on console will be open world with the player being given more freedom and less linear story lines. This hopefully means that being forced to go down certain paths which are laid out ahead by conveniently parked cars a thing of the past.

 

Like every other year E3 had a reoccurring theme from both Sony and Microsoft. This year was the endless repetition of ‘In-Game Engine’, ‘Real time’, ‘Only on [console]’, ‘We going to charge you until you become homeless’ and ‘It’s Exclusive’.

BF4 – Slightly Serious Post

This is a serious post with serious content for serious people, like Batman. I’m pretty sure about 84.643684685735373584769579% of people reading this would of already seen this video, as a professional I did crunch the numbers myself.

 

I won’t try and put my own biased spin on this post as I would like you to make up your own minds about the whole thing. I am not going to try and twist your view to match my own…I will not mention how it looks identical to the current BF3 game play and most DEFINITELY WILL NOT point out it looks like a slightly pimped BF3 that could easily pass for BF3 v2.6 Golden Cock Edition. I can honestly say I will not mention how similar to CoD the series looks to becoming… read on…
