I'm glad the stinger works the same.. but it still looks like it has too big of range. I always had far more kills with the IGLA than the stinger because of the reticule allowing an easier lockon IMO. Now that it will require a constant lock on, it should allow helicopters a better chance at being able to break the lock. Its a shame they didn't show how the air launchers work against jets though. Damn jets better not be able to just outrun them constantly. Jet experts on the PS3 annoy the living hell out of me because they can never get shot down by the soldiers on the ground.

Another video. Not really article worthy since its mostly been covered before. But Seeing Caspian Border's antenna fall makes me wonder if this is where the idea of "levolution" came from, obviously it doesn't really change the dynamic of the map much, but I wonder if levolution events will be added to the other 3 BF3 maps in the classic map pack that will later be released.

 

Honestly I hope Wake Island doesnt make the cut for the 23432th time. That map is in every BF game, and its really not that great. Gulf of Oman is the only old school map I'd like to see back.

 

FuShe Pass wouldn't be a bad choice either

I was thinking about that Caspian Border antenna also, it could be considered their first levolution.

 

I liked Wake Island and spent a lot of time on that map.. mostly because of the vehicles available on it, tanks, attack helicopters and mobile aa. If the Mobile AA was available on any other map for the PS3 version other than on one other map only on rush mode and only while defending, I probably wouldn't have played it so much. Once Armored Kill came out and the Mobile AA was finally on more maps, I hardly played Wake Island anymore.

 

I noticed the vehicles can now get paint jobs.. I like that but at the same time I don't. I guess it'll help distinguish people tho. Hey, what tank are you in? The blue one!

I should schedule that friday off just to play the beta all day on PS3. I'm pretty certain I can get it on Oct 1st, but I'm going to assume there will be a PSN store update problem and the game wont even roll out until 7pm and then it'll have to download overnight, then connection issues.. I figure by friday the beta will be in full swing... Now I just need to prepare and clear off about 10gb or so off my ps3 for that download.

Hopefully that's cleared up on PS4. On 360 I downloaded the beta and played it immediately. Even with PS+ being paid, It will still take them a year or so to catch up IMO. They don't have the same funds starting up that Xbox 360 did from Xbox for their online service going in.

I'm thinking it was a PS3 issue. Some games seem to download fast based on my internet connection, but some games are ridiculously slow to download. Last of Us was probably the slowest digital download I've ever experienced. I don't know if its because the game was downloading from the Naughty Dog servers, maybe that was the problem. Most games download fully off PSN and then install, but there are some games that download a small install file, turn on and then download through the game.. like DC Universe, Defiance and Last of Us to name a few. I don't know if those games were downloading from their own servers or not.. but I hope they learned something from the Last of Us download bull crap.. I had to leave that game running almost 2 nights straight to finish downloading it. I'd have set it to download in the background but it would only download if the game was running. One nice thing was after it hit a certain percentage I could play the game while having it continue downloading in the background.

The biggest problem with PSN is probably their store.. There has never been a consistent timely update. When they have games available digital on the day of release, people expect to get their pre-ordered game at midnight.. but no.. they don't get the store update done until 7 or 8pm sometimes. People could just go to the store, buy the game and beat it by the time the store updated.

 

I'm going to assume they have a much better infrastructure in place for the PS4, especially considering all their claims about their Gaikai tech. That and since Sony is estimating 5 million units sold by the end of the year, they'll be experiencing a higher volume of constant users than Steam during a weekend.

Did you ever play MGS4? The install from the disc was horrible. You had to sit there and watch Snake smoke for 30 minutes. XD

 

It seems like they fixed this years later however.

I still haven't had a chance to play MGS4.. lmao, that is horrible. XD At least they gave everyone some health warnings. XD

 

That reminded me of the Harold and Kumar dvd menu.. it was the only pointless screen I ever watched on purpose. It wasn't even loading anything, it was just the menu, but I went to get something to drink and I heard them b*tching on the menu and I kept watching.

 

Found it!

 

 

Games should have install screens that are entertaining like this. XD

You definitely need to play it, its probably my favorite MGS since MGS1. Although this game doubles as a movie. A lot of the cut scenes are 30min to an hour, they do have some alternate view angles at times. The best part about them however, is you can pause them. I remember the first time i pressed start because I was pressed for time and it paused instead of skipping the whole thing I was relieved. It was my first play through and I was pissed I was having to skip it only to find out I didn't have to skip it. :P

I hate that! Lmao! I've held off on using the bathroom on so many occasions while a cut scene is playing just to find out I could have paused it at any time. XD

Meryl is back in the game? I'll have to play this. I'll look for it on amazon.

 

Oh.. and seeing as this is a battlefield topic.. (so off topic now, lol).. I played some BF3 tonight to get myself ready for the BF4 beta.. I got 4 more kills with my EOD Bot. I'm at 26 kills with it now.. I might just go for a service star with it. XD

I'm sure the DLC will have new assignments. I just hope there is never a Gun Master assignment ever again. I can deal with EOD bot, but the Gun Master was way to stressful, I really dont want to go through that again. lol

I've played the hell out of BF3 and I've only played Gun Master maybe 20 times and only because it was in a map rotation. I try to avoid it at all costs. I like the Close Quarters maps, but because of the limited number of players for those maps, theres hardly any servers for them and when there are, gun master likes to rear its ugly head. -_-;

Hmm Hopefully there will be more players. On 360 I always found a Zebra Tower 24/7 300% Ticket Conquest Domination, or a rotation with CQD only. Odd that Gun Master would be in the mix. I came in 2nd on Gun Master on scrapmetal. My arm was swinging the knife for the winning kill when the screen cut to the final results. lol That was the one and only time i finished that high. I'd always get 6th place which aggravated me to no end since you had to finish top 5 for the assignment.

I think I said it wrong.. its limited players / server renters that put the CQ maps into rotation.. I'll always find a zeba tower 24/7 and a few others, but most servers are always full.. especially the official EA servers. I'll usually find maybe 1 or 2 pages of joinable servers.. nothing compared to searching for original maps on conquest.. I'll get 30 pages of servers to jump into easily. The biggest problem I have with the CQ maps is all the hundred star colonials. Hardcore no life bastards running CQ servers.. and of course the guy running the server has all of them on the same team.. I either have to go into a que on an EA server and wait 5+ mins to get started into a game, or join a server with a bunch of level 6 guys versus a team of colonials that know exactly where everyone will spawn. -_-;

Yeah finding a server that wasn't full was a bit troublesome. I put a few on my favorites list because most of the non EA servers were douchebags that had a big list of rules that mostly had "No Shotguns", but a lot of times no RPGs, C4, or the shotgun attachment for ARs. I'd generally get banned from servers like that on purpose because because I felt like they were wimps. I'd join and run around with the Spas-12 and get squad wipe pins until I was booted XD.

 

I hope EA does a better job of populating more of their servers. I only play on no limit servers, because even if you are following the rules on a "No (insert weapon/equipment)" if you're too good, or you knife the 100 star colonel, you'll get booted. I've found very few 100 star guys to be beasts gun to gun. Most of those guys got their rank from tank and jet whoring.

      Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.
