    How is it any different. BF2/BF2142 go through Origin now I thought?

    I've been rolling with the Rex since I was playing pistol only servers this spring. It's pretty hard to beat. I'd like to find another active pistol/knife server, it was great fun, reminded me of GoldenEye.

    I loved it in BC2, but it always felt a bit off in BF3, the Revolver just seemed so much better. This last patch though, just made the thing amazing. Quickly rose to my top pistol, and compared to any other of my top pistols, I am over 10% more accurate with it, the things a beast.

    Well I have a softer spot for cats now that we ended up with one who's a really cool little dude but I support this statement for all the birds, rodents, reptiles and insects that would be spared as a result. Keep them inside, morans.

    Yep ! I can't even get BF2 to work on Windows 7.
    It works on Vista, but not 7. At least not on my Laptop.

    I can get it to work but widescreen sucks on BF2. They did something good to BF2142 to make the widescreen look right. On BF2 widescreen looks stretched badly.

    I am going to take a picture of my BF2 manual and see if they will add it to my account.

    That's what I find most useful about your reviews, the blend of game play and gun statistics that lead to a better understanding of why the weapons behave as they do. Most reviews are based on "I like the way it feels" or "I can really shred with this gun" or "It seems fast/slow to kill with." Very nice job.

    Thanks for the compliments, it's part of the reason I wanted to start doing reviews. Talk about the actual characteristics of the weapon, something that most just seem to breeze by.

    :laugh: you hit the nail on the head. Though this time around, I think I did a much better job commentating than my first video. Thats all a work in progress. I was always worried that not being crazy like some of these guys I watch do a 20 min commentary of straight talking on some of their gameplay (could never do that, they ramble about so much random shit). But watching LevelCaps reviews gave me some inspiration, he doesn't got the most exciting commentary and people like what he's doing, so I figured, why not.

    No the review itself is great. Would like to know how you are measuring distance, and how you are judging the drop off. Other then that its great.........just boring as fuck. A wise crack once in a while would do wonders IMO. But that's just my personality. I like funny and informative. You got the latter.

    Its much better then most reviews. I just like some lulz tossed in. Maybe stab Ugfy or something with a nice teabag........that always makes me feel better.

    Take media training, does some wonders. Just don't end up like that that guy that does video hardware reviews...uh...whatever his name is...


    I stil lthink the G3A3 is a slow-loader, BTW. I do have 22+ hours of using it :p Never tried leaving bullets in though, since when it matters, is usually when I empty a full clip at two or three from close range...then it feels like the PKP almost. Nor really, but it seem liek an eternity comapred to say, the M416.

    Honestly, I just pick a gun and use it until I top 1000 kills with it. Lately I have been using the assignment weapons, working through the assignments slowly...

    but you know, it's like the assignment that needs claymores...man, I never remember to put out the claymores.


    The last four rounds I have played, I ahve been #1 for score in three, and second on one. I could probably do a lot better if I udnerstood exactly how the weapons worked, which were most optimal for what situation, but that's going far to technical for me to enjoy playing the game. I'm not competitively focused in any way.

    Perfect. lol

    Ill tell you its taken me YEARS to not judge the weapons on their real world merits in video games. Not even ARMA is close. You can ask Alex or Brandon about this too. Those guys or I pick up a .308 and hit someone 6 times 100yrds out and sit back and think "WTF did I just shoot?" The drop off and speed are WAY off then the real weapons. 1911 is nothing like the real world one. Its not that its a bad thing mind you. Its a game. Just tough for a gun nut to grasp sometimes.

    That is why he is the Troll Master ! You know that by now. If it ain't that it is
    because you watch football or have different opinions on politics or on and on
    and on :roll: He wouldn't be Mailman if he wasn't fucking with someone. :laugh:
