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…

Bad Company 2 Ultro-Spoof Win

Okay, this is absolutely brilliant. My affections are always available for the high price of a really good gag, and EA/DICE just bought mine for Bad Company 2 with their fantastic spoof of Modern Warfare 2's painfully awkward Fight Against Grenade Spam video. The original video featured heroic Phillies (baseball) pitcher Cole Hamel presenting a PSA-style advert about the problems of grenade spamming in Modern…

BFBC2: Thoughts And Demolitions

I was playing Borderlands yesterday, and an enemy dived behind some cover. Naturally, I pull out a missile launcher and squeeze off a rocket. As the smoke clears, something strange happens. The cover is still there, untouched by the explosive death I spat at it. It stands, defiant and unmarked. This is what Battlefield: Bad Company 2 does to you. It ruins everything else.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Impressions

The true casualty of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 isn't the hundreds of soldiers who die each round, or even the dozens of vehicles that lie strewn across the battlefield, slowly reduced to scrap and rubble by continued ordnance as they're used as cover by desperate marines. The true casualty is the scenery. You're presented with a pristine (or mostly pristine) landscape that is about to…

BFBC2: Single Player, Server Rental, Beta

So it's about time we caught up with what's going on with Battlefield: Bad Company 2, since the multiplayer footage has seemed so solid. DICE have coughed up a single player trailer (below), which is all very spectacular, but kind of predictable in that military-hardware porn with a rock soundtrack that we're kind of getting over-familiar with now. Anyway, there are a couple of other…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits. Meanwhile, others that we expected to land, such The Old Republic, have already fled to 2011. Read on as the clouds in our crystal ball roll back...

Panama Splat: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Electronic Arts might be making a load of noise about reclaiming the FPS crown with the re-pumped Medal Of Honor, but I think they're also making decent headway in that area with the Bad Company sequel. What we've seen so far from the multiplayer sessions has been very exciting, and the latest footage from the game's "Panama Canal" map looks just as intense - particularly…

Demolition Men: More Bad Company 2 MP

Apparently this new piece of footage from Battlefield Bad Company 2's multiplayer is a map that will feature in the beta. It's confirmed as a pre-order beta at the moment, so I've no idea if we'll be able to get our hands on this for general play with an open beta for PC in December. It's looking remarkably solid, with the environmental destruction stuff right…

Breaking: Predictable Thing Happens

When the Modern Warfare 2 thing kicked off I said to my fellow RPSites, "gadzooks, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is so going to capitalise on this." And lo, I see on Blues that EA have posted a Dedicated Server FAQ on the game. "Other games use player-hosted or 'peer to peer' solutions," says Gordon VanDyke, presumably with a smile, "often resulting in a "host with…

The Best Things In Life Go BANG

Or even BANGBANGBANG! Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has many best things, as you'll see in this trailer of the multiplayer aspect of the game, below. We've heard only good things about the game so far, better things, indeed, than the previous game. It's good to see some of that confirmed in a riot of game footage. Destructible scenery, vehicles, beautiful animation and particle effects... all…

Wholly Holey: Bad Company 2

March 2010 will see the arrival of the sequel to an FPS spin off from the Battlefield series that never actually showed up on PC the first time around. Once again the focus will be on environmental destruction, with the new game finally challenging Red Faction in the breaking-stuff stakes. You'll be able to blow holes in walls with light weapons, and flatten entire buildings…
