I am about 20 hours into the game and I am about 50% complete so this will be considered a Midway-Recap as I have not actually completed the game.
NOTE: There are spoilers in this post… if you have not played the John and Jacob areas of the map, I would suggest maybe not continuing.
First I want to rant a little as I have been reading a few reviews that I think are a little ass-backward when it comes to one thing.
If you asked me 5 years ago what my 5 Year plan was… I would never have guessed I would have gotten this far.
I moved to Quebec on January 1st, 2012, with the hope of starting anew. After 32+ years living in Ontario, I took the bold leap to leave my Province and start a new exciting chapter in my life. But it doesn’t start there. It all started in 1999 when my best friend Eric handed me my first copy of Linux… Corel Linux. It was at this point, just before I started College, that I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a Linux Admin, the guy who sits in the back room, making sure everything is working as it should.
I caved… after years of being way I started a free account, maxed to level 20, and decided to buy back into it to level further. I hopped out around the time of Wrath of the Lich King, so about 2008/09. I jumped out because they changed so much of the game that it wasn’t fun any more. Over the years I hoped on and off while playing the free version, and I sort of got to liking the way the game is, being able to fly in most areas (Seems the areas released in the Burning Crusade are still to be updated) is pretty cool especially when you can boost a character to 90.
I am a HUGE fan of the Battlefield series, and there are only a few out of the many games under that title that I have not played (Battlefield 3, sadly was one of them, so some of my comments may conflict with BF3, just keep that in mind).
Battlefield 4 is out and I finally got a chance to play around a little. Sadly though I have yet to be on a winning team (See my profile). In this episode I take a look at the Battlelog Interface and play around in the Test Range. I also show a comparison between the Artillery Rocket vehicle and attack helicopters from both Battlefield 4 and Desert Combat, the Battlefield 1942 mod which started it all.
Earlier this month I got to partake in the Battlefield 4 Open Beta. On October 4th EA and DICE announced that access to the Open Beta, however to gain access you had to pre-order the game, as an avid player of the Battlefield series (since Battlefield 1942 was released back in 2002) this was not an issue. Sadly I had gotten a chance to play Battlefield 3 (its on my list of games to get) and I was not about to let another title slip by.
