Now, before you all start thinking this is turning into a BF2 blog, I have to say that the next patch is rumoured to have a release date as early as Febuary 1st (or at least sometime soon), so the news for it has been coming thick and fast. Anyway, to the topic at hand…
Contrary to the slightly misleading title, I’m not selling my BF2 account. For one, I’d never part with the nom de guerre BertieBaggio without a fight, unless I had a reason never to play again. Secondly, I’ve put around 200 hours of my life into it which I’m never going to get back, so I reckon I should at least hang onto the product. However, other people have different principles…
Information for the masses is what Google provides. Or at least a way of searching through it. Now we have them to thank for sharing this info with us: tank exploits 🙁 The video shows enough for a BF2 player to recognize an exploiter, so hopefully this will clue up some clueless admins and give people a chance to get some evidence to report those taking advantage of the bug.
A story like this HAS to be mentioned…
Far Cry was, and still is, one of the best looking games to date. The huge outdoor environments and detailed murky indoor ones, set the mood fantasticly well, and made the experience great fun!
An now, Crytek has come up with their next project, the Cry Engine 2, and the game to show it off – Crysis.
The details are sketchy, and the article posted below is in German, which isn’t much good to me, but the screenshots speak for themselves. This is using the new dx10 and all the latest technology avaliable. I am impressed, and I shall keep you updated if anything more comes out about this.
EDIT: Check out the awesome film clip of the effects and technologies they use…it looks pretty darn good.
There have been a couple of updates to the steam programs, both of which look promising.
The first is to do the the Source SDK, and it looks like it fixes a lot of the bugs and crashes that many mod makers were experiencing, so hopefully more mods will come out faster!Read More »Steam updates
Well, it seems we have more proof that the changes to Battlefield 2 in the 1.2 are for real, and that UAVs can (unfortunately) be shot down. Videos released from PlanetBattlefield and BF2.se show the UAV (and other features) in action.
Edit: Kenny found us some video footage of the new unlocks in action
