    More rocking games of rush in Bad Company 2 with Eddie. A very vocal French guy and another guy without a mic joined us for the last game and boy was it the best ever. I got a “best player” pin and we got a “best squad” pin after that. A highlight was flanking the dumb sniper who shot me and stabbing him in the back. Hehe.

    Some earlier games were frustrating though as some players on our team were more interested in their KDR than defusing the bombs! I literally ran past someone near the bomb and was too late to defuse it.

      Man, that KpD needs work 😛

        Nah, I’m happy with my KDR as I’m playing Rush all the time which is an objective based game. The most important single objective in the game is the team win and playing as a team. As a medic I did very well IMO.

        I unlocked quite a few new gadgets: red dot sight, 4x zoom and a few health box upgrades. I tried the red dot and 4x zoom. The red dot helped, 4x zoom didn’t as I prefer to be closer and I’m not precise enough with the controller.

        I used the health upgrade mostly; one upgrade increased the range of the health pack which proved really effective.
        On one round we holed up in Bravo defending the bomb. I dropped the health packs near my team and racked up the points when they were injured, and revived them too. Every revive gives me the same points as a kill. After one particular incident when we were hit by an RPG I think I earned 490 points after everyone had healed.

        I somehow managed to stay alive most of the time running from one person to another doing the medic thing. Exciting stuff! 🙂

      A vocal French Guy – you say that as if it’s a surprise mon ami!

      And as TheChrisD said…kdr. It’s not important, not like you can put it on your CV, but as long as it’s going up instead of down you should be doing alright 🙂

        It was funny, I didn’t have a clue what he said except when he said “merci” after reviving him. When he got killed I knew immediately and would search nearby for his body to do the defib thing.

        Fair dues to him, he led the charge on bravo when we were attacking. He was first into the bomb site and I was mostly after him. When we eventually got it our whole squad was in the bomb site, some of the others having spawned on us to add to our numbers.

        It’s great when playing with team players, the lone wolf gamers are just annoying and don’t help at all.

    Parachute safely to the ground in Bad Company 2 by double tapping X “until you feel a jolt” apparently.

    Wish I’d known that last night. I fell to my death from the helicopter when I thought the parachute would automatically open! -10 points for a suicide and an “EPIC FAIL”.

    Oh, and as an engineer or medic or assault class, if you’re wondering where your fixing tool, health box or ammo box is you have to unlock them. They don’t take long to unlock however. 🙂

    Note to self: in BfBC2 Rush try not to end up in a squad of snipers. I swear, the guys hung back the whole time. They racked up the scores but it would have been nice to have some support out there when you’re the lone assault guy!

    Note 2: when you’ve only got 5 or 6 tickets left, don’t drive a lightly armoured car with 2 passengers into the range of a tank. It’s bad for your team. And I bet that team mate of mine wishes he walked… Ooops.

    Still, despite that, enjoyable games, even if I did do a bit much of the lone wolf MW2 gameplay. Flanked a few guys nicely though.

    I just know I’m going to get annoyed at writing BfBC2.

    Engineer Ownage on Bad Company 2 

    Spiderbite of NextGenTactics shows off some “engineer class ownage” on Battlefield Bad Company 2. Love the last bit with the helicopter crashing!

    “The story is online with others, not single player.”

    Above I’m paraphrasing something I read a while back but the truth of it was brought home to me after playing BfBC2 for a few hours last night after 3 games of Modern Warfare 2.

    This morning as I thought back to the previous night’s gameplay my first thoughts were of multiplayer action in MW2. I recalled the camping enemy soldier I knifed on Highrise, and then when the minimap exposed the sniper on the roof of the hut I stood next to, I climbed up, stood over him for a moment and *slash*. I wish I recorded that game as the final kill was a jumping shot I somehow pulled off.

    BfBC2? The single player game was hectic, it was fun but ultimately not as satisfying. I’ll still play through to the finish of course, but I’m really looking forward to the online play.

      Yes! It’s all about online multiplayer. That’s how any game gets my respect.

    Gaming TODO list:

    1. Finish Bad Company 1. I’m almost near the end, but I kept dying in the village where you have to destroy the two bridges.
    2. Play Portal as the sequal has been announced. I have the Orange Box, and despite being a huge Half Life fan back in the day I played about an hour of HL2 before getting bored of it. I never even go to Portal.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 Review 

    The Guardian Technology Games Blog reviewed Battlefield Bad Company 2 a few hours ago. The review is in my feedreader but not on the site. Odd.

    Anyway, they gave it the thumbs up with a score of 4/5.

    Compared to Modern Warfare 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has skulked into the fray well below the radar, but committed fans of military first-person shooters will find it in no way inferior gameplay-wise. If you see yourself as a true, hardcore gamer, you’ll be needing a copy.

    Subscribe to their blog through Google Reader and you should be able to see it!

      And the review is up. This game is pre-ordered on Amazon for me. I found the demo very difficult but then I said the very same thing about MW2 when I first started playing online. I suck slightly less than I did then.

      The Ars review has me worried, especially this last bit:

      The constant reward and unlocks means that this game gets its claws into you very quickly… if you’re married or have kids you need to start building up some goodwill points now for the long nights of gaming in your future.
