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…

Gaming Externally

Recently, Apple in particular has been aggressively pushing the newest connectivity interface standard, Thunderbolt (formerly known as Light Peak). Although it received little attention initially, interest and support has been slowly building for it in recent months. Excitement over the interface is greater than ever at this years CES where several clever new products that take advantage of the Thunderbolt interface were demonstrated. Now it is important to note that Intel, who developed the interface intends Thunderbolt to work alongside of the USB standard rather than replace it, USB has finally lived up to the first word in its name, “Universal”, and Intel seems to have neither the means nor the interest read on…

The “Below Radar” perk for BF3 is an one of the cooler bonuses I have seen in any game lately. Its based on fact and allows for evasion of active missile threats for an expert pilot in an intuitively obvious way. The perk lets pilots evade air to air missiles by flying low to the ground.

Clan Theory 101

Back to school!

The concept of “Clan Theory” has existed in my head for quite some time developing most at those times I have nothing better to think about such as when mowing the lawn, attending a lecture, or driving to school. Many blades of cut grass later this idea has developed into a somewhat robust understanding of how groups in the gaming world work. Based on my own experiences as a semi-successful clan leader, I have come to the conclusion that there are five basic types of clans in the gaming world that have vastly different levels of success, longevity, and resources. In this article, mainly for my own entertainment and because I just enjoy writing from time to time, I will overview read on…
