Funtime Friday: Grit
It’s a bit difficult to cry poor as a man writing about video games, when every now and again you get a delightful gift that absolutely grinds the gears of everybody else you tell.
This is my gift.
I’m talking about Battlefield 3, of course, which unlocked itself for Australian gamers yesterday.
Naturally, if you were the industrious sort of fellow, you could use a VPN to give yourself an IP from South Korea to play the game early. My housemate did this and spent most of Thursday in the multiplayer.
Such shenanigans aren’t required now. I’m playing on the PC, which is the platform you should be playing a Battlefield game on. Controllers are for noobs.
But rather than dive head-first into the multiplayer, I’ve decided to work my way through the campaign. I’ve only knocked over the first couple of missions to begin with, but good god – Frostbite 2 is a sexy, sexy engine.
Why haven’t you bought this game yet?
Go do it. Now.
But just in case you’re one of the strange individuals not excited to pick up Battlefield 3 this weekend, please satiate my curiosity – what on earth will you be doing this weekend instead?
