Incoming! October 2010

I’ve always been a bit of an odd duck when it comes to computer games. Sure, I play mainstream titles and look forward to the latest releases like any gamer out there. But my individual preferences tend to stray a little further from the beaten track. Take, for example, the Battlefield series. While many fans feel that BF2 or the most recent entry, BFBC2 are the best in the veritable plethora of Battlefield field games in the series, the edition I enjoyed the most was probably the least popular (and IMHO also probably the most underrated) incarnation of the game.

Yup, BF2142. In all probability, it was probably because it played so differently from the other games in the series. Sure the mechanics were all the same, but it had interesting vehicles and a truly inspired visual design and concept (Titans anyone? Walkers?) and also, not having to worry about historical or real world authenticity really let the design team flex their creative muscles.

Moving forward, present day. EA’s Medal of Honor and Activision’s COD:Black Ops loom on the horizon (October 12th and 9th respectively), both established franchises from well known developers (Dice and Treyarch, sadly Infinity Ward’s not doing this COD due to problems with publisher Activision) with a collection of great titles under their collective belts.

Which will I be playing? Well, both probably, but which will I like more? Probably the one with the quirkier game-play. And by quirky, I mean the one with the game engine and player base that allows you to do really dumbass crap in-game and make embarrassingly cool machinima.

Personally though… EPIC BEARD MAN FTW!!!
