So after they killed War Of The Roses I decided to try a different kind of online game
Quite a few of my mates play Battlefield 3 so I gave it a go and man it is fun. Going solo was kind boring... but once we were all online and in squads doing awesome stuff it was good fun Plus one of my mates has his own Team Speak server so we can chit-chat and come up with cool tactics.
The only thing I don't like is the huge advantage veteran players have over the newbies. Even with the sniper rifle it still takes me two clean headshots to kill someone, which is complete bullcrap even for a game. But nevermind I'll just keep going up the ranks.
I also cannot get the hang of the fighter jets... whoever designed their controls needs a kick in the love spuds. My mates use a ps3 controller hooked into the computer to use the jets since the mouse/keyboard combo is insane.
But ground combat is much more fun anyway
Another game we just started getting into is Planetside 2
For a free to play game this is awesome. Of course there are bugs since it's new but man they are quick about sorting them. Bummer is that there's only one Aussie server so whenever they take it down for fixes thats the whole of Aus and NZ out of the game... but its free, so no complaints
I really like the open-world feel it has and the huge scale of the battles, you can have a small squad vs squad skirmish or full on war with hundreds of players going at it and more tanks and aircraft than you can shake a stick at.
The graphics of course aren't that hot, think like SW Battlefront 2, maybe slightly better, but the cool thing is that it doesn't really matter what it looks like since it's still really fun.
