On The Horizon
The BF3 360 patch goes live tomorrow, on the 3rd of April. Also, the creator of the USAS posted about his decisions to make it what it is (or was, as the case will soon be). Those are the latest developments in the world of BF3, but they aren’t really the purpose of this post.
I am going to be taking a leave from posting regularly and trying to keep something fresh on the front page. I have some new and interesting developments at work that require more attention (and less distraction), and there is simply no way to carve more time out of my schedule except to let go of this self-imposed responsibility. The fact is, it is an easy time to take a break because, until the announcement of the launch of the “next” generation of gaming consoles, there is very little that I need, or think about, beyond that which I already have.
I am a satisfied gamer. Gears of War 3 works well enough to play and have fun. I have waking dreams about private matches of Gears 3, like the good old days when we used to spend the entire weekend playing Gears 1. And, of course, there is never a time when I am not ready to grab a round of any gametype of Battlefield. (I curse Achievements and Ranks and Double XP for stealing private matches away from us, just as “role-playing” stole casual gamers away from BF3.)
That isn’t to say there isn’t anything to look forward to: BioShock Infinite, Borderlands, and Aliens:Colonial Marines are just a few of the AAA games waiting in the wind (and 4GN still hasn’t even played B:AC or ME3). Yet, even these fantastic games don’t have me checking websites and scouring forums. I am sure that will change when the new hardware, along with the inevitable launch titles, are officially announced, but that is probably a year off.
In the meantime, I am going to take a break. I am subscribed to our blog, and will still be checking daily. I just won’t be running ahead wavin’ the banner for a while.
I look forward to gaming with you all soon, and equally, to jumping in party chat and laughin’ and catchin’ up.
P.S. The next month of Fridays I won’t be on ’till late, perhaps very late. Saturdays, I should be able to get on a little earlier.
P.P.S. Here is an interesting article, chock full with even more interesting links, that was forwarded to me by a friend this morning. Be sure to watch the YouTube of the baby girl and the iPad.
