The Xbox LIVE Marketplace is having a huge sale on EA games, many of which support some form of cooperative play. I know some of you think EA is an all-powerful, nightmarish entity that usually passes time by eating children and kicking puppies, but when the publishing juggernaut is not being evil it happens to put out some pretty cool games.
More news is storming the internet today as E3 2012 progresses. We've got details from EA's press conference regarding a premium service for Battlefield 3. Previous rumors have been confirmed: Battlefield 3 Premium is a DLC bundle, similar to Gears of War 3's Season Pass. In essence, by paying up front for all five pieces of DLC, Premium members will save $25 and have access to content two weeks before anyone else. Other perks include exclusive items like an ACB-90 knife and unique dogtags. Sounds like a great deal for fans of EA's flagship shooter.
The spring gaming season is well underway and we've already seen a slew of co-op game releases, like Binary Domain, Journey, and Shoot Many Robots, where cooperative gameplay was a focus for the game from the start. Yet we've also seen some major AAA releases, like Mass Effect 3, hit store shelves where the addition of a multiplayer component is something new for the series; or an existing series, such as The Darkness II, swap it's formerly competitive multiplayer mode for a strictly cooperative one. Finally, you have the revival of older games that have had their format completely changed - leaving them ripe for the traditional player vs player multiplayer style to which we've grown accustomed - and still maintain the co-op gameplay (we're looking at you, Syndicate).
Good Co-Op, Bad Co-Op - a tale of two friends who love playing games together. The man who gives the best upsidedown hugs, Sunflower4000 and the love wizard Locke have put their differences aside and teamed up cooperatively in a battle against fate.
We've got another guest submission from Peter and Ruth for Co-Op Couples this month. There are plenty of great co-op games out there, but sometimes, the well goes dry, and you run out of money for all the latest, shiniest titles. What's a co-op loving couple to do? Get creative and share the experience any way they can, of course!
So it might not be real gameplay footage, but Freddie Wong of YouTube fame is back with another great gaming related video. This time it's his take on the Battlefield franchise - and I don't mean this take. Titled Battlefield 4 Co-Op the video looks at a pair of soldiers working together to take down some enemy combatants. There's some slick nods to things you'd only see in Battlefield games and the audio and look of the video is pretty spot on.
Before this fall started there was a battle heating up on the gaming front. It was a battle of military shooters - Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3. Activision entered the contest as the reigning champion, their franchise selling millions of copies each year across all three platforms; Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. But EA wanted to challenge the dominance with their own storied franchise with BF3. We take a look at both games and ask - "Did their co-op promises deliver?"
Amazon is the place to go for the most co-op game deals this Black Friday. Everything from Battlefield 3 to the Kinect is on sale for some pretty ridiculous prices. Sadly it looks like the awesome PS3 bundle sold out rather quickly.
Battlefield 3 is out! I bet you didn't know that. You did? Oh, well did you want a copy for your PlayStation 3? Good - because we're giving one of those away. Perhaps you read our co-op review or our co-op FAQ on the game and now it's all you can think about. You dream of piloting an attack helicopter with your best friend. You want to complete sniper missions with grandma. And the only way you'll get through a work day is by checking Battlelog every 15 minutes to see how your platoon's K/D ratio is doing.
Battlefield 3 is here and with it comes a two player online co-op mode. Our latest in our FAQ series lays out some common questions you might have for the military shooter. If you are looking for our review you can find that over here.
The greatest war represented on video game consoles this generation is not set in World War 2, modern times, or even the future - it’s the war between the Call of Duty franchise and everyone else. EA has tried once before to settle the score, taking CoD head on with their Medal of Honor franchise with little effect. The latest attack has come in the form of Battlefield 3, a franchise who’s roots are in the PC but found new life with the Bad Company series on consoles. Battlefield 3 spans both PC and console and is definitely EA’s answer to Call of Duty, but does the focus on this war cost Battlefield 3 what has defined the series?
Did you stay up to the wee hours of the morning waiting to unlock Battlefield 3? If not, now is a good time to remind you that you'll want to update your graphics drivers on your PC for the game. Both AMD and NVIDIA have released optimized versions of their drivers for DICE's Frostbite 2 engine. I put a solid 3 hours into the campaign last night on my PC armed with a GeForce GTX 580 on all Ultra settings and the latest drivers. The game is drop dead gorgeous for sure and makes serious use of lighting effects with some really slick texture details.
So many games... so little time. We don't know what to do with ourselves! This gaming season's military FPS war begins with Battlefield 3 firing the first rounds tomorrow. A host of other games of varying genres are joining the fray, each looking for a piece of that substantial holiday pie. What will you be playing?
Don't blink. Not even for a second. You might miss the transition in the latest TV trailer for Battlefield 3 which seamlessly blends real world warfare action with scenes from the game. Can you tell the difference?
As we previously reported, the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 will include an optional hi-res texture installation. The installation is necessary because the game’s textures are quite large, and hard drives can stream data much faster than DVD drives. Why make it optional then? Because not every 360 owner has a hard drive, of course. That's common knowledge by now, but new details have started to pour in.
