Duke Nukem plays Bad Company 2

Utterly ridiculous and over the top gameplay. Amazing stuff.

You’ve probably already seen this but I’ve given up on trying to watch everything in my subs box these days. Not enough hours in the day.

My PC BfBC2 KDR Goal

After last night’s brilliant performance on PC, which was interrupted by my taking down a helicopter with an unguided RPG I have a new goal in the game.

KDR is all important to most players, despite what they’ll tell you about playing the objective and all that sort of thing. It has to be because you don’t want to be losing firefights all the time, right? It’s no fun spawning on the recon back in your base that has only 1 kill by the end of the game is it?

Wrong! I’m well on the way there already so my goal is a 0.01 KDR!
Sometimes of course enemy soldiers will walk in front of my bullets and stay there long enough to fall over in a funny way but it doesn’t happen very often. Still plenty of opportunity for me to support my team as a medic, assault or engineer of course. (Recon doesn’t count, I never play that role anyway.)

Who’s joining me? (Certain scenes from the Life of Brian flash though my head right there, you’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen it!) I’m docaoimh on Steam, donncha on PC BfBC2 and whenever I play PC games the preferred method of chat is Skype but I have mumble installed too if that’s your thing.

Catch you (or probably not because you’ll sneak up on me) on the Battlefield!

Hot Digity I did well in BC2 Vietnam…

Hot Digity! I did well in BC2 Vietnam this evening, and on PC too!

In my first game got a quad spray through the walls of a hut, and then tore apart the other team in a tank. I led the leaderboard with a 11/4 KDR. Could not believe it. I swear, some players should practise flying helicopters more. They practically line themselves up to be shot out of the sky with a tank shell..

Very enjoyable 45 minutes of play and I’m level 6 now!

In case you’re wondering, my consoles have been disconnected because of home renovation. No Xbox or PS3 for me for maybe another week. πŸ™

How bad is the aim assist in Bad Company 2, really?

I’ve never noticed the aim assist in Bad Company 2 but apparently it’s there and this video shows how bad it is. PC players are right! Console players suck! πŸ˜‰

Thanks RDTTeamAwesome for posting this informative video, and to drmb for blogging it. I just don’t have the time these days to watch all the BfBC2 videos out there and they post some of the best to their blog!

Rocking BfBC2 on PC

Well, we sorta rocked Bad Company 2 on PC tonight. I’ve only ever played the game in short bursts because of my frustration with the keyboard controls but tonight I invested almost 3 hours in the game, the longest single session on the PC. I hooked up with TyeWebb and while I never rarely walked away with a positive KDR we played well. Not so bad when I don’t even have magnum ammo unlocked yet. *sob*

Hell, Tye and myself were the top two players on our team! Take that elitist PC snobs! The console players did well! πŸ˜‰

Of course, special mention must go to iKiltNOOBS, the level 50 who equipped explosive damage and fired 40mm grenades at random near contested flags. Way to go.

Bravo 2 Company FTW!

Paul posted the launch video for a new Battlefield clan, Bravo 2 Company, I’ve joined him in the clan and next time I fire up Bad Company 2 I’m changing my clan tag to B2C. Haven’t played an FPS in ages though, I’ve been too engrossed (and exhausted in the evenings) in Minecraft.

Check out the clan homepage where you can register and join up if the want!

Apparently nobody uses the in-game team …

Apparently nobody uses the in-game team chat in Bad Company 2 on PC so lots of people use Mumble. Unfortunately that can have unforeseen consequences when both teams are on the same Mumble server…

Defender: Watch out guys, we have enemies in the back of our base
Attacker: …….no i’m not……

Next time I fire up the game on PC I’ll join that Mumble server and see for myself. (via)
