Battlefield 3 Weapon Damage

Den Kirson is at it again Amrosorma, CrustyM, erk070, and tomchuk of ESDECO produced a neat weapon damage spreadsheet for Battlefield 3 here.

I haven’t checked it out yet but as I’ve hardly unlocked anything it probably doesn’t really matter to me yet any way!

Some Battlefield 3 tips and myths here The…

Some Battlefield 3 tips and myths here. The first two I saw myself, the third from here and summarised by Gavin:

  • When you die bullets and rockets will still fly through the air. I disabled a tank after I died in one game.
  • The knifing animation can be interrupted if the attacker is killed. I was lying on the ground, then suddenly looking into this guy’s face and at the sky and gunfire shot him down and I escaped!
  • If you plant a mobile spawn point and die don’t come back as a recon as the spawn point will explode.

Lots of great discussion on the Battlelog forum.

BF3: It all started out so well..

Battlefield 3 was finally released in Ireland and the UK and elsewhere yesterday. I had a few games early in the evening and then later played with a few of the guys.

Yes, stats aren’t everything but looking at a killcam all the time isn’t fun either!

Sanctum and other indie games all for $2 cheap!

The Indie Royale bundle is offering Sanctum, Ares, Nimbus and Gemini Rue for a knock down but slowly increasing price. It started at $2 but it’s currently showing as €3.67 here. The more people pay the minimum the higher the price, pay more and the price goes down.

I already have 3 of the games so I’m not buying but Sanctum alone is worth the entry fee.

I’m still at the stage where I just mash the attack and evade buttons in combat. The first video above shows a simple but better technique by evading enemies with jumps and the second one is the “Perfect Freeflow 2.0” achievement showing how to do the following moves in slow motion.

The latest Battlefield 3 trailer makes me wish the game was out right now and that I had a PC fast enough to run it. PS3 and Xbox 360 for me!

Prince of Persia for the C64

Prince of Persia, an amazing game released in 1989 on the Apple II and ported to most platforms of the day but not the Commodore 64 for some reason.

In 2 days time the game is due to be released on the C64 in EasyFlash format, a cartridge format for the C64 but luckily Vice also supports it so I’ll be able to play it under emulation. Looks great doesn’t it?

Edit: Announcement post and download page for C64 Prince of Persia!

11 minute of Syndicate and it looks boring as hell

It’s an early level from the game but it’s so disappointing. Your player rolls around the level with arms outstretched holding a handgun. I hope the final game is better than the impression this gameplay teaser gives.

L4D2: Help them up!

Lord of Angry mmmmmar person was a bit of a douche when we played L4D2 gibfest tonight. It was great fun until that guy joined. He was fairly useless, charging ahead and shooting us all the time.

We got our revenge when he got knocked down. Duck watched as his health slowly drained away. He wasn’t happy! 🙂
