By this time next week, I should be playing the Battlefield 3 beta on my PlayStation 3. My monthly bandwidth limit may come into play and stop me, but I won’t worry about that right now.
With the impending beta, I thought I’d take a look at Bad Company 2 and some of the issues it that I hope Battlefield 3 will solve. Some of these things have already been addressed, but I’m still going to highlight them.
Just a little over a year has passed since the launch of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Where did the time go?
For me, 9 days worth of it was invested in the multiplayer — and it’s still counting! Needless to say, it’s my most played game of this console generation. I also have my doubts about ever topping it. Even with Battlefield 3.
So why am I continuing to play this game and how has that experience been? I decided to shed some light and answer those questions.
I thought Magicka looked pretty neat for a $10 game. I was planning to pick it up at a future date, but I may have to get it out of the way sooner rather than later because this Vietnam expansion looks fun.
I didn’t pick up Bad Company 2 Vietnam, but this looks like a cute and fun parody.
Magicka: Vietnam is slated for a summer 2011 release.
My PlayStation 3′s 19 blade fan arrived today and I installed without any trouble. I started up the system and it sounds noticeably quieter during idle. I tried running Folding@Home for 30 minutes or so and it remained quiet. I’ll put it through its paces when I get my hands on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow which my bro is currently playing through. Or maybe I’ll play some Bad Company 2 multiplayer.
Who am I kidding? I’ll be playing Civilization V.
Which is one reason why I haven’t been playing around with the Windows Home Server v2 Vail beta I installed on the Shuttle ST20G5 finally! So far it’s been a cinch to connect and administer, but I have yet to try any backups or media streaming. Perhaps I’ll have more time during this upcoming long weekend.
