    I like sniping on Golmud Railway. This particular rock I'm on gives me a good view of a few flags and the spawn location of the enemy team. I normally shoot at the flags, but when no targets were available and I saw an enemy heading back into their spawn location for a jeep, I took a shot. Turns out he was putting C4 on a jeep. My bullet destroyed the C4, which in turn killed him.

    My first impressions of the SR338 is that it is a DMR with all the sniper rifle scopes. I'm really surprised this is in the same category as the rest of the sniper rifles. This gun reminds me of the SKS from BF3.
    This gun is definitely a DMR except that its only good for medium range. Up close shots and you need at least 2-3 shots to kill an enemy at point blank range. This isn't good at all for my style of Aggressive Recon. I don't see how you can get 3 shots off in time when it has a bigger accuracy penalty than a regular DMR with follow up shots. Any other gun could easily take you out in a fire fight up close.

    I was playing Domination on Operation Mortar when I got this UCAV Airburst triple kill. The shortest effective range for the UCAV is shown in this video. From the moment I shot it, I was holding up on the control to pitch the UCAV down as fast as possible until the last moment. Around 120 meters in the shortest distance a UCAV can be effective at.

    I tried Lay's Stax for the first time this week and got two different flavors. Original and Buffalo Wings With Ranch. The originals are nothing special. I used those as a base to evaluate the new flavor I was interested in. Original Lay's Stax taste just like Pringles Original except the chips are about 1 1/2 times thicker.

    Buffalo Wings With Ranch look exactly like they do on the packaging. One side plain with the other side flavored. The chips were very consistent with no one chip massively over seasoned and because of the packaging, not a single busted chip.

    The chips have a noticeable vinegar smell and taste with a very mild taste of buffalo along with an almost non-existent hint of ranch. Overall I was not impressed with these chips.
    Should you eat them?
    If you like vinegar with buffalo, try them out. If not, then pass on them. Just don't eat these with a group of people around or in the office because you might get complaints because the smell of vinegar is very powerful.

    Doritos Jacked chips are thick, large, bolder tasting versions of their regular Doritos lineup. So when I saw the Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings flavor I had to try them. The packaging details really jumped out at me and being a fan of the Ranch flavored doritos the blue color really grabbed my attention.

    The chips are huge like all the other Doritos Jacked chips and the flavor is almost spot on for what it claims to be. The Hot Wings flavor is a spicy buffalo flavor with a hint of vinegar that gives it a nice bite to the heat. Along with a nice hint of ranch these chips taste good. All the chips are noticeably coated with flavoring and smell great.

    Should you eat these?
    Yes. If this flavor sounds appealing to you, get a bag and enjoy the bold taste.
    (Update!) After eating these at work today the vinegar smell and taste of the chips was much more noticeable. A small change of environment and I realized I must have been getting used to the smell and taste at home. Turns out these are a bit stronger with vinegar than I thought they were and a couple coworkers seemed to notice.

    Lay's Sriracha is one of the three new Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. I haven't had the chance to try the other two flavors, but I did get my hands on a bag of these.
    I have to admit.. I have never tried Sriracha sauce before so I have no idea just how spicy the sauce is by itself. I've heard that it is intensely hot and based on the picture on this bag I can only assume its going to be extra spicy.

    The chips themselves are a bit reddish in color compared to regular Lay's. They smell very mild and not powerful enough to indicate any real heat. The flavor is the regular salty lays taste with a nice heat that hits lightly and then burns the tongue a bit. After about 5 chips or so the burn is a bit more noticeable and at its maximum heat. I didn't notice any back of the throat burn or "creeping up on you burn" like you would normally get with cayenne pepper so i can only assume these chips are more mild in heat intensity compared to actually dripping Sriracha sauce directly onto regular lays chips.

    Should you eat these?
    Yes. If you want to try a new kind of spicy potato chip, give these a try. But don't expect them to be the hottest chips out there.

    I've seen these "New York Style Pita Chips - Parmesan, Garlic & Herb" (huge name) in the store before but I never bought them because the price of the bag seemed a bit high for the amount of product. So when I came across this bag that was "50% more free" I jumped on these chips. I've never had Pita chips before so I had no idea what to expect. The packaging is nice, the chips look good but like I said, the size of the bag is what put me off.

    Here is a small bowl of the chips. The consistency is a bit odd. Because these are pita, some chips are folded closed while others are a bit more open with that regular 'pita pocket' look to them (not in the picture unfortunately). After eating a small bowl I realized why the bags are smaller. These chips are filling! A small bowl is actually quite dense. You don't need a large bowl of these for a good snack. A small serving is perfect. Also.. these chips taste amazing!

    I was astounded by the flavor these chips have. The package says "Parmesan, Garlic & Herb" and that is exactly what you get. These chips are full flavored from the moment you put them in your mouth all the way until you swallow. Amazing chips. The opened chips in the bag are perfect for dipping into sauce, but after trying them with a dip a couple times I felt like I was cheapening the flavor. These chips need no dip. They are perfect tasting. If anything, the flavor is so good, you shouldn't eat them multiple days in a row or you might get burned out on the taste. Eat these every other day, or get a couple flavors of them for a great snack.
    Should you eat these?
    Definitely. The only problem with these chips is the availability of them. Out of the 4 major stores in my area, only one sells them. If you can find these chips, I highly recommend trying them out.

    Lay's Chicken & Waffles is one of the three Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. That contest has ended already and I'm a bit late in posting this review. Upon looking at this bag I thought to myself, "Ewww.. Denny's and KFC combined their flavors into what might be amazing chips!"

    The chips are a darker yellow in color compared to regular Lay's. When opening the bag, the smell is the first thing that you notice. Maple Syrup, a very strong maple syrup smell. The flavor is also Maple syrup but doesn't taste like waffles or chicken in the slightest. Its more like pancakes and some seasonings that might be included in a chicken fry mix... But not chicken at all. Its a more meaty flavor because of how greasy the chips are. These were the most unique flavored chips I've ever eaten and not unique in a good way. The first couple chips are interesting to try, but after 5 or so you'll notice a greasy film starting to coat the inside of your mouth and tongue. After 10 chips I thought maybe something else I ate was affecting the flavor. So I tried again the next day after I got home from work.. Nope.. Disgusting. Another 20 chips in and I couldn't stomach them anymore.

    Should you eat these?
    No. I'm glad these did not win the contest. Horrible chips. They reminded me of the failed Olestra Pringles. Not because of the flavor, but because of the possible side effects caused by eating them.

    Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips are some of the best jalapeno chips available in stores. With that nice large red "Hot" pepper on the front of the package, I was expecting some good heat and these chips delivered.

    The chips are a nice gold color speckled with green jalapeno seasonings. But the flavor isn't just in those speckles, these chips are imbued with jalapeno flavor. After just a few chips you'll begin to notice the nice jalapeno burn sneaking up on you as an after taste. After about 5-10 chips you'll be approaching the full flavor profile of jalapeno perfection. Kettle Brand jalapeno chips are less salty and have less 'folded over' chips than other competing brands and that is what really sets them apart from the others. Every chip is very consistent with flavor and seasonings.
    The only downside to these are probably that they are a bit greasy, just like all potato chips. But the packaging does a good job at grabbing excess grease and seasonings and keeping it all stuck to the inside of the bag, mostly at the bottom. This reduces the overall greasiness of the chips to be a bit less than a regular bag of Lays. If you really enjoy the flavor of jalapeno and want every last crumb and bit of grease, after you eat a bag of these, cut open the empty bag and lick the inside for a special treat of unhealthiness. I actually did this once.. too much grease for me, but the flavor was very good.

    Should you eat these?
    Yes! These are some of the best jalapeno chips you can buy. Expect some good jalapeno heat. These are hotter than Lay's Sriracha chips.
