Anyone on the team with any kind of remotely passing interest in Battlefield 3 is either sat out in the sun having a cheeky cider or they’re hiding. I’m trying to feign interest in all this, but instead ended up feeling a bit miffed that everyone’s calling this thing a patch. A GIGABYTE patch.
I remember when all this was just fields, etc.
Anyway, whatever, Battlefield 3 (the game were you stab a rat and then a bit later sit in the back of a fast airplane and go oooooh at the clouds) has got a big fat update, which apparently contains “more tweaks, fixes, and additions than you can shake a stick at” and gets your whites whiter than white.
Things that mean almost nothing to me in no particular order: a 5-flag Conquest Assault variant for PS3 on Wake Island, the ability to rent your own server (£1.19 a day or £20 for a month) and a big pile of shortcut items that cost money but remove the need to actually play the game.
I love this generation.
