Back-to-Back DLC Releases Today

Today was actually quite an exciting day for both Gears of War 3 and Battlefield 3 fans! Why you may ask? Simply because the long awaited DLC’s have finally been released πŸ™‚ That’s right – RAAM’s Shadow and Back to Karkand are available to download and play. What exactly are you guys waiting for if you haven’t downloaded either DLC? I’m already waiting for my downloads to finish πŸ˜› Check out these featured videos on two amazing DLCs you won’t want to pass up.

Watch the preview for the Gears of War 3: RAAM’s Shadow DLC and Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand gameplay video.


Multiple Platform BF3 Comparison

Here’s the start of something beautiful.Β Here is another one of Gametrailer’s controversial videos of comparing 3 systems side by side using the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3. Of course whenever a video such as this is produced, it starts a huge flame war between the three rival platforms. Obviously, this video leaves you to cast your own judgment and remarks. But if you ask me, there is no significant difference aside from the fact that Xbox 360 wins by my vote! The only games I would want to play on my PC would be Torchlight 2 or Diablo III (perhaps even Counter-Strike GO as well). Everything else will just be heading to my 360 since my Gamerscore seems quite meaningful and I always love earning more points. Achievements on other platforms just doesn’t share the same type of rewarding feeling that I get from my 360. Thank you Microsoft for making achievements feel like an accomplishment worth trying for.

Btw, one good thing to note about the major difference between consoles and PC is the multiplayer experience. The scaling and size of the capacity a server can maintain on a PC is obviously more than what a console can handle. PC’s will have 64 total players in a single match, whereas the consoles can only hold up to 32 (in reference of BF3). Oh, and please do not bring up MAG as a good counter measure for proving me wrong. That game was beyond terrible and labeled EPIC FAIL. Aside from amount of players each system can match up against, graphics are pretty much equal and on par with each other (enhancements can be made depending on your equipment. Invest in a high-end flat HDTV to beef up the look and feel of your console). The only significant difference is the frame rate.

Side note: I attended the Battlefield 3 midnight release. It was awesome! Thanks Gamestop for being so efficient at handling midnight releases. I was #74 πŸ˜‰

Buy BF3 and Get into ME3 Multiplayer Beta

If you’re one of the gamers purchasing Battlefield 3 on October 25th such as myself, you will automatically be able to play the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer demo in January. Isn’t that awesome? We get dibs on testing out ‘Galaxy at War’ – Mass Effect 3’s brand new multiplayer mode which is also a first ever for this franchise! Maybe now you will give into buying Battlefield 3 if you’ve been contemplating for awhile. Even if you do not buy BF3, everyone gets the same opportunity to try out the single player campaign demo when it comes out πŸ™‚
