Well Battlefield 3 is out and everyone is playing it and everyone is starting to complain about it. Without further ado lets talk BF3.
BF3 is an excellent game that will surely give MW3â€™ers a run for their money but it does have its problems. When everyone rushed home to their consoles they were sad to discover that EA has not yet fixed their server problems as they have always had in the past. It still is glitchy but not as bad as the beta was. Sometimes you can even be stuck at the loading screen and have to restart your console. But these are only technically issues with the game that can be fixed by EA.
The gameplay itself is superb. The single player is very short but it gives you a compelling story. The multiplayer actually has you doing military tactics such as flanking maneuvers and providing suppressing fire to confuse and disorient. New gameplay that was the blurring effect that happens when you provide suppressing fire (firing close to someone but not hitting them). Another new gameplay feature that DICE studious has brought to the table is the use of vehicles. Yes you had the ability to use vehicles in past Battlefield games but this time you have the ability to customize your vehicle with different types of weapons and different enemy counter measures. Oh not to mention you can customize your gun now too (EA be tryin to hate on COD) oh not to mention they have one new vehicle, the jet. Yes thatâ€™s correct you can fly a jet. My feelings on this are mixed. In the beginning the only thing you have is a gun for engagements for air vs air fighting not to mention its hard to shoot someone down. But all in all its great gameplay and a ton of fun to tryout.
All in all I would have to say BF3 has its perks but they also have their major disadvantages when it comes to their servers. Today their servers were great up until around dinner time when they began to time out. I get the feeling this will continue for a while but you will see them get better as time goes on. All in all I would give this game a 3.5 out of 5.
“This is a contest concerning some of the ridiculous stats about the Battlefield 3 Beta. One of these stats where that someone scored a 700 meter headshot!! The game isnâ€™t being released until tomorrow but it will last from 10/25/2011 tillâ€™ 11/15/2011. What I want is a video or maybe even a picture of your ridiculous stunt. It can be either on multiplayer or campaign. The winner will be awarded 50 points towards the The Bank. This is for all systems that Battlefield 3 is available on! Xbox 360, PS3, PC, etc.”
*Now remember, it has to be something ridiculous that would either be very lucky or extremely rare to achieve. Good Luck!*

Hey folks I was able to get a hold of a computer this Thursday night so thankfully I can do the news tonight. Any who lets get going.
Incase you have not heard DICE studious have released a beta for Battlefield 3. Yes that means I am skipping my Russian Politics class Monday AS SHOULD YOU!!!!!! I personally have not played it yet due to an injury I got at work and canâ€™t drive to renew my xbox live gold membership (actually I lied im just a lazy bastard but I really did get hurt at work X( ) so from what I heard its one map and you play the gametype rush just like previous Battlefield betas. No vehicles from what I hear but itâ€™s still awsomeness in a beta. Regardless check it out and see what DICE has to offer. Really you have nothing to lose from this.
Also for you COD / BF war mongers check out this article from IGN. I think this is part of the reason why BF3 might knock off COD as the big shooter.
So want to guess how many copies Gears of War 3 sold? Hmmm anyone? Anyone wish to venture a guess?? No? Yâ€™all a bunch of p*ssies!!!! Seriously Epic games sold over 3 million copies of Gears of War 3 surpassing the One-Billion Dollars mark (Yes I said that in my Dr. Evil voice deal with it the Austin Powers movies are the big-mac sauce). This momentous occasion has also marked that Gears of War 3 has grossed more than any other video game in 2011. My personal congrats to Epic Games on this milestone for the year and for making the good game. However Do not be surprised if BF3 or MW3 take that mantle in October and November.
Rumor has it Xbox and Playstation might be considering TV viewing on their consoles. Again this is just a rumor but I have to bring up the point and ask is it just me or is Microsoft and Sony just using the 360 ad PS3 as Betaâ€™s for their next console. Quote me on this and talk to me in a year from now.
