Why Battlefield 3 will have you glued to your seat

When the latest instalment of the Battlefield franchise arrived at my doorstep, I can easily say that I was more than just excited. Having played both Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2, I had great expectations for the shooter, expectations which were duly met.
The first option the game offered was to download the HD texture pack, which, in my hurry to start the campaign, I ignored it. So as I started the campaign I noticed little things, the scenery looking flat and poorly rendered fire. I went back and installed the texture pack. The effect of the pack could not be missed, with sparks, dust and explosions all appearing on my screen in their HD glory.
The campaign itself was at time very tedious. Frequent press-button-now scenes became dull, making for a less than exciting ending. Similarly glitches in the game were far from uncommon. At one point and found myself staring in confusion at my Russian comrades who could materialise through walls and doors, leaving me frustrated and having to restart. Overall though, the campaign is short and sweet. It follows American soldier Henry Blackburn who is thrown head first into a nuclear bomb plot. Unsurprisingly there are Russians and a Middle-Eastern threat involved, which has become the seemingly staple enemy of modern FPS’.

Just what is Bungie Aerospace? Other than a few bits of info, namely two Bungie execs incorporating it and filing a trademark named “Crimson”, not much is really known. The only other info is that sometime during Bungie’s annual celebration, running from June 23rd till Bungie Day (July 7th), all that is Bungie Aerospace will be revealed. No fluff, no smoke and mirrors, just complete and explicit details.
This is a big year for Bungie and their well known franchise, Halo. Bungie themselves will be celebrating their 20th anniversary while Halo turns 10 years old. After Halo: Reach, Bungie handed over the reins to Microsoft’s own 343 Industries and went on to a new secret project. Rumors have been swirling as what they were up to, from a Massive MultiPlayer Online First Person Shooter to a steampunk based game called “Destiny”.
