Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Thinking about the music, there is something to be said about the raw tension when you're holding down a base in rush and you hear Fortunate Son gaining volume in the background.

"FUCKING TANK!"

Re: World of Tanks Beta

Probably already been asked but what kind of rig would I require to try this out? Sounds pretty awesome.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam

I agree. I love the concept of battleground Europe (100% mmfps sim) and would love to play it, however I don't have enough time nor the rig to try it out.

Only thing console has going for it is ease to find and play a game in 15 minutes total.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Nope, it's akin to 1943. Only multi.

I just threw a grenade that skipped off a hill and directly into a Huey's side door, killing 3 bad guys. Even got a 6am "ohhhhhhh" from a squaddie. Fun times!

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Agreed, and in addition vanilla BC2 map pack 7 was released free of charge a short while ago with 3 new maps 2 of which are armor intensive.

So if you haven't played this in a while, now's a good time to get back inro it.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Just downloaded this today. It sports a hefty price tag at 1200 MSP's and requires the BC2 game to play. In addition it it roughly 1.7 gigs for those of you still sporting the smaller hard drives. Okay necessary info aside I have to say this may be the best team based FPS to hit the XBOX in a long t...

Re: A Comparison of Qin era soldiers with other ancient armies

Also, tactics on the battlefield favor the Romans as well. Where as rome had developed clear strategies to employ calvary and archers. The Qin tended to fight head on and save their bolt weapons for their early calvary. Source for this claim? This book is a good source on how China refined it's tac...

Battlefield 1943 360/PS3

Yes, I know it's a heavily gimped version of the PC's games. Yes, I know they simplified the game by adding permanent HQ's and taking out two classes, in addition to regenerating health! However, this game is a blast for 15 dollars, and I'm glad it's raising awareness on a great series. So, wonderin...

I'm sorry, were logistics asked to be figured into this matter? As I said, there is no doubt the Romans were better equipped and better trained. And i have no doubts that any reasonible conflict would end poorly for the Qin. However, the Qin DID raise and UTILIZE an army that was rumored to have bee...

Re: A Comparison of Qin era soldiers with other ancient armies

Well China did invent the crossbow some 1000 years before their European counterparts... I think this would be a numbers game, as it is perceived that the Qin raised the largest standing armies in the ancient world, numbering between 250,000-1,000,000 heads for the final invasion to unify the countr...

Well, our core is 10 gig with virtual farms etc. However that spoke still uses an archaic network that's 10/100 and the emphasis is on the 10. Infrastructure improvements aren't extended to non-performing spokes :)
