I haven’t been posting much on here during the past few weeks. I can’t seem to stop playing Battlefield 3. This game is simply amazing, and i am completely addicted to it, so I don’t have much time or care to do anything else but play it.
I copied this from South Park (changed the last part though ), but I’ve been saying “I Don’t eat or sleep or mow the lawn, I just play BF3 all day long!”.. ha.
I can’t remember a time when I actually loved a video game, or anything in that matter as much as I do Battlefield 3. I LOVED Battlefield Bad Company 2, and played the crap out of it, as you can see on my BC2 stats page. But BF3 is something way more amazing.
Battlefield 3 takes everything I loved about BC2, such as the realistically paced game speed, the amazing battlefield environment, team work, and purposeful feeling, and made it so much better, bigger, and even more epic.
The major thing I hate about games such as Modern Warfare and other Call Of Duty games is that there really isn’t any skill involved, you basically just run around shooting whatever, and getting kills, and being killed yourself. No tactical or strategic thinking is involved, and It’s not much fun. Bf3 is probably the opposite of MW3.
The graphics in Bf3 are simply amazing as well. It makes me feel like I used to feel back when I was a kid and would play with my toy action figures, it’s hard to explain really. Almost as if its like watching a interactive CG animated movie. It’s a really great experience.
Here are some screenshots I’ve taken of the game, mind you these are the best graphics, I allow Bf3 to adjust my graphic settings automatically, which it places everything on high, and 16xaa. So the graphics can look much better if you have a much more powerful GPU. I run it on a EVGA Geforce GTX 560 ti SC., which is just fine for me.
I usually play the Support Class, because I’m such a bad that I miss so many targets, and with the a support class you usually get guns that can hold 200+ rounds in each magazine, so you have a lot of ammo to work with. But I’ve already unlocked everything in the Support Class, so I’ve started playing the Assault which is meh, okay. I really like how the weapons are way more accurate, and I can actually use my sights and target something across the distance and hit it, which you can’t really do easily with support.
Another cool thing about BF3 are the jets! But I’ve given up trying to master them. I play with them every now and then for the hell of it, but my Kill/Death ratio gets screwed up and negative when I attempt to pilot, so blah!
As you can see in the following video, I am not a very good jet pilot at all, ha.
If you would like to play a game with me, my battelog and soldier name is basketcase.
my BF3 stats are here:
I was going to write about this yesterday, but my webhost was having some server problems that prevented me from adding anything to the site.
We had a weird random wind/dust storm here yesterday. It was sunny mostly, and I was sitting in my room working on the computer and noticed the house shaking. I looked out the window and it was SUPER windy. I really thought there was a tornado or something going on. I looked in the distance over the trees and seen huge clouds of dust in the air moving quickly. At first I thought it was some sort of huge dirt devil, but then noticed that there was a lot more dirt, an dirt every where, and it was moving quickly and not spinning.
I almost instinctively grabbed my camera and went outside, I went down the road some to catch the dirt clouds, but by the time I got there it was mostly cleared, but you could still see more in the distance.
It looked clear around me, but in reality it was much more dusty. The car kept filling with dirt, and I kept getting dirty in my mouth and eyes, was horrible but such a cool experience.
I’m not sure what caused this. There was a storm to the south as you can see in some of the pictures, so maybe some time of low draft or something. Not sure how fast the wind was going, but it was going super fast which you can see in the video.
I wanted to make a nice video of it, but what I took to capture video was my old droid, ha, and I hadn’t used it in a while and kept covering the lens with my finger, so I had to edit the video and ended up with only a small amount of footage.
Again, it was much crazier in person. Video or pictures don’t do it any justice. I wish I had gotten out with the film with the dirt was still thick though, but it was starting to clear up once I got out side.

These are after most of dust cleared (blew away), was still super windy. I thought this view was beautiful. I’m actually thinking about uploading these in high res because it was such a beautiful site and picture. I know the gallery I use limits the size , but you still get the idea. Check back for larger full sized versions
Was bored. Wanted to test video on my iPhone.
Just messing around saying random stuff.
Learning tricks and so on. so, someday maybe just maybe I’ll be able to make a cool video.
We got even more snow! and this time it wasn’t super windy so it all piled up.
Anyways I took the boy ferret out to play in it, and I thought I had lost him. ha I eventually had to dig through the snow to get him out.
Then we went over where it wasn’t as deep so he could tunnel a little bit. But I think he got super cold, so we weren’t out there for too long. I know I was
