Console BF3, now with servers to rent!

Yay, they bring the one thing I didn’t like about playing PC Battlefield games to the consoles. I could not care less about what server I play. I just want to squad up with my friends and play a game.

Now, let me play with a keyboard and mouse and I’ll be happy. I’ve had enough of using a crappy controller. Ironically enough, in the PC world apparently most servers have hackers so all platforms have their downsides.

Back to Skyrim then. As I said on Twitter earlier, I feel like a tourist in that game finding new stuff all the time as I wander about.

BF3 Beta is Fun

Well, finally it’s here! I couldn’t get into any Xbox games because of problems connecting to EA but I had few problems connecting on PS3 where I teamed up with Mike, Gavin and Conor. Unfortunately the game split our squad up so we were on different teams and squads so we couldn’t talk. Next time we’re getting on Skype!

The games were a laugh, hardly anyone knew how to play rush from what I could see. While attacking I sauntered into the first base and blew up a crate with only 2 defenders coming to see what that noise was after I set the timer going. My own team weren’t much better as they ran past crates (or whatever they are now) without arming them!
It’s sort of annoying that your own team mates can push you when you’re arming. That happened to me a couple of teams but I still got the arm 🙂

Also when a squad member spawns on you you’ll get pushed forward if room is limited. Right into the line of sight of the enemy. Grrrr.

Good news is, you can still tea bag the enemy, only now it probably looks like doing press-ups.

What does Battlefield 3 look like?

You’ve already seen this video but I had to blog it just because I posted videos of BF2 the other day. It looks amazing doesn’t it? Can’t wait!

Check out this article too which covers the demo shown to people last night at GDC. (Thanks Swordsman75 for tweeting that article!)
