Sorry for the two month void in posts guys. Pixel Well took a back seat to finals and then the last couple weeks I’ve just been settling… Or something. Suffice to say, I’m back and hoping to crank the engines up around here. I’ll start tonight with a little discourse about Bad Company 2.
I got into the beta for Bad Company 2 when I preordered it. Now I know, Mass Effect 2 came out at like the same time. I just felt like Bad Company 2 jived with my aesthetic needs at the moment more. Of course I’ll get Mass Effect 2, but I’m loving Bad Company 2 thus far.
The problem is that I’m already at that, “How the hell did I die right there?” phase. I guess that usually doesn’t set in for awhile, but already there are ninjas flying around with the prototype whatever gunning me down more effectively than any sniper. Learn 2 play, right. But its not that. Which brings me to the prime gripe I have with BBC2 right now: the lag. Or the lack of synchronization. I fire a rocket and it takes two, maybe three seconds to jump out of the barrel. This is with graphics on low, when I get pretty good frames on high everything. If this was in a forum I’d have BETA spammed for twenty posts after my own, but hey, that’s what I’m feeling right now. If that was fixed/tuned/whatever needs to be done, I don’t know if I could put the game down. I mean, I already barely can.
On the flip side, Syndic and Abyssus are both going to town on Mass Effect 2, saying its great. I’ve read that the RPG elements have been stripped a bit, so I’m a little concerned. We’ll see though. I’m still really interested in getting it. In the next couple of days I’ll be talking about some things that I’ve been thinking about with video games lately and some information about recent media. And maybe a post or two about my opinions on things from Dragon Age Origins to downloadable content. Stay tuned guys.
