[E3 2014] Battlefield: Hardline – Six Minutes

… And those six minutes speak for themselves. Lately, the industry has seen a trend: merging the single- and multi-player game-play dynamics into one, connected experience. Red Dead Redemption’s Posse mode, GTA Online, Payday I & II, and many others have tried to create the most dynamic possible experience, bringing together the narrative quality of a single-player and the dynamic flexibility of a multi-player experience. Battlefield: Hardline is the latest foray into this trend, and from what we’ve seen, is poised to make some serious waves.

As you’ve likely heard, Battlefield: Hardline is a heavily-media inspired title, structured episodically and informed by works such as Heat, The Wire, and similar crime epics. The new direction allows the team at Visceral Games – that’s right, the developers behind the Dead Space franchise, and Dante’s Inferno – to jump the military ship in favor of a world of crooked cops, and brutal criminals and everything in between.

Battlefield 4 is the best shooter of the next gen consoles so far

It seems like just yesterday that we were booting up our consoles and PCs and loading them up with “Battlefield 3”. But, alas, that was two long years ago. The good news, however, is that we have a brand new “Battlefield” game to sink tens of thousands of hours into. Now normally, there was a good stretch of years between “Battlefield” games. But in the case of “Battlefield 4”, it only took developer DICE two years to make it. So let’s see how they did.

[E3 2013] DICE’s Battlefield 4 Promises Incredible Environmental Destruction, 64 Player Count

Ask any FPS-gamer which next-generation shooter they’re most looking forward to, and the response will almost certainly include Digital Illusions CE military juggernaut Battlefield 4. DICE has been making incredibly-polished multi-player titles for longer than most of us have been able to pick up a controller.

 

At this week’s E3, DICE has revealed a deluge of new footage from the title, and it’s looking every bit as bad-ass as we hoped.

Battlefield 3 [Review]

Battlefield 3 [Review]

So here we are, the release date of Battlefield 3 has come and gone. The game is being played across the globe on consoles and PCs alike. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of players are engaging in combat across the sky in jets, thundering across the terrain in tanks or apcs, or capturing bases as infantry.

The game has many an attractive feature, whether it be the astounding environments in which nothing short of all-out-warfare is waged, the sound quality which makes the player feel like he or she is being shot at or that there is actually a jet screaming across the sky overhead, the smooth gun play which allows the skilled pros and the new-to-shooter players all feel like equals.  Overall, and thankfully, the continuous leveling system encourages players to keep playing Battlefield 3 to get that next attachment or that next vehicle upgrade.

Battlefield 3 Hands-On Beta

Battlefield 3 Hands-On Beta

Let’s get this straight, I love the Battlefield 3 beta. I’ve been playing it every moment that I’m not eating, sleeping, or working since it was released on Tuesday, September 27.  I eagerly await the open beta that starts tomorrow to welcome a new whole crowd of players — both Battlefield veterans or just potentially interested gamers — into the experience. Since I started playing the Battlefield series with Battlefield 2 in a Gamefrog cafe that was located in a mall, I have never stopped wanting more of the series.  This beta, as a representation of what is to come with the final release of the game, delivers almost everything I could want or expect.

Real Talk – You Got Some Medal of Duty in My Battlefield

Greetings, ladies and gentle-geeks. It has been a minute. Or two, but don’t worry, I’m still angry. I’ve been taking a break, to let the vitriol settle. Not to reduce its potency, but in fact to allow it to age in oak casks and triple-distill.

Today’s target: The FPS. I say that like it’s a unified genre full of completely interchangeable five-hour romps through similar environments with almost totally identical antagonists and almost no diversity in game-play or narrative. Just like that, in fact.

Since it is.
