Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

Feature: The best Battlefield game?

Have You Played… Battlefield: Bad Company 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 threw out a little of the scale of the main Battlefield series, making smaller maps that didn't contain the planes that offered some of the most fun experiences in Battlefield 2. But what it gained was better level design…

Bad Company 2 Throws Off DRM Shackles

As part of an eyewatering 2.6Gb cumulative patch known as Client R11 due for release today, DICE have taken the bad out of Battlefield Bad Company 2. The bad in this case being the icky and pointless SecuROM DRM in non-Steam versions of the game. Hooray for small freedoms! The patch also brings some tasty-sounding performance improvements and bug-splats, as detailed more below. Sadly, DICE…

Eyes-On: Battlefield 3’s Operation Guillotine

Just two months ahead of release, Battlefield 3’s singleplayer mode remains something of a mystery – oddly so, given this game is DICE’s attempt to make their biggest franchise as appealing to lone gunners as team gunners. So getting eyes-on with a never-before-seen singleplayer level yesterday went some way to explaining BF3’s approach. That approach: MEGA-GRAPHICS, MEGA-EXPLOSIONS, MEGA-WAR. And yet, somehow, it's also far more…

Feature: I Do Not Discuss Prone

Love Is A Battlefield

For the past few weeks I have found myself returning to my favourite multiplayer game of last year, Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It's a punchy rascal of a game, but it also hints at plenty of things that could be better in the future, and reminds us of lots of things that have been better in the past. Things that might be better in Battlefield…

The RPS BFBC2 Server Rides Again

Multiplay have given us a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 server to use while we warm up for Battlefield 3. It's live now. Join me! You'll probably need to search for it in the server browser, so the full name is Multiplay :: Rock, Paper, Shotgun UK Server. I believe the search is case sensitive. Join our Steam group for notifications of when we're playing this…

Ben Cousins Talks Battlefield Play4Free

Electronic Arts are making some serious progress into the sphere of free-to-play games, and it's interesting to watch this established and old school mainstream publisher gear up to explore that fresh frontier. One of EA's pioneers heading off into that great unknown is Ben Cousins, who is the general manager of EA's free-to-play branch, Easy Studios. I talked to him about Battlefield Play4Free. Battleforge, and…

Battlefield 1943 Dead, Also Onslaught

And now for the bad news. Blues reports that Battlefield 1943 has actually been cancelled for PC, despite prior news to the contrary. This forum post has the news: "We know some of you eagerly have been awaiting Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught on PC, " says Karl Magnus Troedsson. "I’m sad to say that these two titles are now officially cancelled.…

RPS Game Club: Sunday Night Manshoots?

How is everyone fixed for some shooting of men from around 7pm GMT on Sunday 16th? We shall play Team Fortress 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The Team Fortress 2 Server: 85.236.100.107:27315, and you can find the RPS BFBC2 server by searching for "Rock". I'll create some Steam group event reminders and see you lot there. Also, a splendid, selfless community type has volunteered…

Battlefields Newses: Map Pack, Release Date

EDIT: I didn't realise this was a mandatory update. Expect to download 2.6gb next time you play the game! Ugh. There are two pieces of Battlefield news! First is that the latest BFBC2 map pack will arrive some time today. It's looking like the best of the map packs so far, with four new maps. FOUR NEW MAPS. JESUS CHRIST! There are two maps from…

BFBC2V: Flamethrowers, Guns Made Of String

This weekend I found myself on the RPS BFBC2 server - as part of our rather oversubscribed RPS Game Club - and I began to remember why I have played more of that game than any other this year. Despite its flaws there's a big bag of What Is Right About Multiplayer Manshoots in there, and I love it. Having done that and then taken…

PC BFBC2 To Get Onslaught At Some Point

PCG have gone and got DICE to confirm that the Onslaught co-op mode, in which four of the multiplayer maps are reworked for 4-player co-op, will be coming to PC. Although it's not clear what this means for the server model, which was the reason that was given for it not being released earlier. There are also no details on price or release date, but…

Third BFBC2 Map Pack Makes Me Say “Hmm”

The reason being for hmming that Map Pack implies new maps, when this is actually expanded game modes for existing maps. Still, it's free I suppose, which is nice enough, although no set release date for PC. It'll provide for Squad Deathmatch on Nelson Bay and Squad Rush on Laguna Alta. Looks like BigDownload scooped the trailer, but thanks to the gentle magic of internet…

BFBC2 Patch On Wednesday

And it's apparently going to fix the browser issues, hooray. PC Gamer post the full change list, which doesn't specifically seem to mention any changes to weapon balance, although they are promised. Could this be a nerf to the medic's Light Machineguns Of Doom? I hope so. Bloody healers. DICE aren't going to reveal the weapon tweaks just yet, as they want "unbiased feedback", whatever…

New US Battlefield Server

International man of mystery Skeez187 has kindly donated a North American-based Battlefield: Bad Company 2 server for your gaming pleasure. It's called Rock, Paper, Shotgun US Ranked [RPS], it's currently a standard settings Rush server. (Still no hardcore, sorry! We're a bunch of softies.) Thanks to Mr 187 for that, and I hope our North American ranks have a fun time slugging it out on…

Battefield: Conquest vs Rush vs Issues

So, Plans A & B may have failed. That leaves us Plan C. That's the one where I stop using broad strokes to paint a picture of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for you, and whip out the single horsehair brush to start filling in all the minor details. This is where the highlights and lowlights are done, chaps. Unsurprisingly, the new Battlefield game is doing…

Bad, Bad Company: Broken Battlefield?

Looks like the new BFBC2 patch (which just rolled out on Steam and has been available to non-Steamers for a couple of days) is chock full of problems. Tom Francis over at PCG has collated some of the problems people claim to be having, which includes crashes and connection problems. I can report that it's crashed to desktop for me since I patched on Steam…
