Battlefield 3 Beta Review

The Battlefield 3 Beta is out now. Until October 10th , You can download this free open Beta and try the game out for yourself. Currently there is only one game type and one map. Rush on Operation Metro.
If you have played Battlefield Bad Company 1 and/or 2, you'll be very familiar with this game the instant you hop into a match. Unfortunately , the Beta has some issues. I don't feel they are game mechanic problems but rather server connection issues for the most part. There are a few holes in the map where you can fall through and get trapped beneath the map. I've even been shot and killed from beneath the map. But it's a Beta and it's used to dig up these problems so developers can fix them for final release. We'll likely see a patch the first day the game rolls out when you start it up for the first time. Other issues are bullet tracer lag, sound going out and a blue tint over the screen at times. Only other complaint is that it will crash my Xbox at times. btw, my review is based solely on the Xbox 360 version. I have no idea how it's playing on the PS3 and PC.  I think the actual game itself will be good. My main issues are actually kind of minor but they're enough to bug me and at times make me stop playing the game. but when it's working properly, it's very fun to play. Essentially though, Battlefield 3 is Bad Company 2 with Prone and new weapons, maps and vehicles. I've heard of no new game types to make it stand apart from it's predecessor in any other way. I'll withhold my final judgment though until after I've actually played the full game. Until then, I'd suggest you try it out for yourself. Never let other people make up your own mind for you. These are just my opinions and thoughts on it. Also, be sure to watch the video above for some of my gameplay/commentary from the Beta itself.

NEW FPS Freek EPIC from KontrolFreek - Gears of War 3

Special 10% Discount for My Subs at KontrolFreek
http://www.kontrolfreek.com/default.asp?aff=5262

Unmatched Precision. Unrivaled Grip.

The FPS Freek EPIC was designed to give you the upper hand while fighting off the Locust Horde in the most anticipated third-person shooter of the year, Gears of War 3. The crimson emblem, created as a tribute to the GOW series by Epic Games, features an extremely tactile grip and a look that will instill fear in to even the most hardcore Xbox 360 gamer.

FPS Freek EPIC's concave thumb surface is designed for optimum comfort and grip. The extended length added by EPIC allows you to make smaller adjustments and "snap" to, track and hit targets faster and more accurately. This added precision will surely help you get the most out of old and new armaments like the "One Shot" Sniper Rifle and other power weapons. Our analog stick mods easily snap on to both standard PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers as well as the new Gears of War 3 special edition.

FPS Freek EPIC is perfect for medium to long-range shootouts and close quarters chainsaw battles. Turn your opposition to pulp in GOW with deadly accuracy and finish the battle on Sera in style!

Works great in both third-person and first-person shooters like: * Call of Duty: Black Ops * Modern Warfare 3 * Battlefield 3 * Halo: Reach * Gears of War

FPS Freek EPIC is designed to fit both the Xbox 360 controller and PS3 controller but will also fit many third-party versions.

Amazing Performance. 100% Tournament Legal.

The FPS Freek analog thumbstick extender was developed for the sole purpose of becoming better at first-person shooters. The result has become somewhat of a legend. Proven a winner time and time again, the FPS Freek has been praised by numerous professionals, enthusiasts and n00bs alike.

By increasing the length of the controller sticks slightly, precision while aiming is improved dramatically. Your range of motion is increased by 40%, giving you the opportunity to make smaller adjustments and "snap" to targets much faster in first-person shooters. This affords you the luxury of turning up sensitivities to get the closest feel to a mouse possible on a console without an internal controller mod or cheat. The greater leverage offers you better control and less force—alleviating thumb-fatigue and adding more comfort to long gaming sessions. In short, this increased accuracy and decreased thumb-fatigue results in more kills and less deaths.

MW3 & COD XP First Impressions

Back from COD XP and having had the chance to play MW3 for the first time, I really enjoyed it. hated to have to come home and go back to playing Black Ops ;)
Kill Confirmed is a brand new game type that was very fast paced and action filled. It's basically a modified version of Team Death Match but with a huge twist. In order to win you have to pick up the dropped Dogtags of the enemy. So you can't just sit in a corner and get a kill. You have to venture out and retrieve the tags to confirm the kill. It really caters to a run & gunner !

COD XP Day 1 Hightlights

Just a quick look at what all was going on the first day of COD XP . Click the video link above!

Call of Duty Elite: My Look Into The Beta

The NDA has been lifted on the Call of Duty Elite Beta website. So I made a video taking you on a little tour of the FREE portion of the website as it sits right now. Keep in mind it's still in Beta and the final site may be similar or vastly different from what it is now.
My initial thoughts are that it's a pretty neat website. It's certainly full of information , mostly stats from your player cards. All of your Black Ops combat record is on the site right now. In the future it will have MW3 as well.
The 2 most unique things I can find that site has right now are the "Connect" and "Compete" sections of the site. In the Connect area, you can find various Groups formed that share similar interests to yourself. Once you join that Group, you can compare your stats and communicate with other group members. Possibly a great way to meet new people, make friends and build a team.
The Compete are is also pretty cool. They hold weekly competitions where anything from badges to use on your profile to an iPad2 can be won simply by playing Call of Duty and submitting your entry. You're playing COD anyway, why not try to win a cool prize while you're at it right ?
The 600 lb Gorilla in the room though concerning COD Elite is the "Pay" aspect of the website. As of me writing this it is still a mystery. No details on what benefits you can get from paying to access that portion of the site or what the actual costs will be just yet. I'm hoping that details will be revealed at COD XP on September 2nd & 3rd. It's been hinted that there will be an Elite reveal there.
Only time will tell. But the free portion of the site is worth signing up for once it becomes available to the public. There are many interesting and useful areas of the site http://www.callofduty.com/elite
Check it out for yourself!

Countdown to COD XP & MW3 Leaks? What Leaks?


So COD XP is only 2 weeks away from today (8/19/11). With the recent alleged MW3 Leaked info, it really has me psyched for going to the event now. I've seen all of the alleged information and I'm actually fairly concerned about it or not. On one hand it might be misinformation and that's why Activision felt the need to have the videos talking about it pulled. Or it could be completely legit and they didn't want the big reveal of COD XP to be spoiled. Either way I'll know in about 2 weeks! I'm going to reserve my judgment on MW3 until after I've had a chance to actually play it. I will likely use this blog to write some detailed descriptions of my personal experiences with the game (unless it becomes restricted).
Stay tuned!

Real Life War Instead Of Video Games

I uploaded a game of Black Ops gameplay/commentary today but the subject matter of the commentary was pretty deep compared to what it normally is. I watched a documentary over the weekend that really impressed me. It is called Restrepo. It's a real life look at the war in Afghanistan through the eyes of the soldiers fighting there. This camera crew went out with this Platoon for a 15 month tour in the Korengal Valley. One of the most deadly places on Earth. They have on average of 3-4 firefights every day with insurgents. I highly recommended watching this film. It's true life.

Updated mini-map , Killstreaks will now be called Pointstreaks, Streaks will stack, Streaks can be cycled and selected in any order for use, Streaks can possibly be earned by completing objectives,  and many more revelations. Watch the video for more!
