This coming week : BF Bad Company 2 Client and Server patch !

The Battlefield Bad Company 2 client (R7) and server (R10) updates have been moved to the beginning of this week.

This was to allow more bug fixes into both client and server versions. A changelog for both server and client will be released at the same time as the updates are due for release.

This will also mean the server that will be released will be the real R10 servers and not "R9b" 

Also some weapon balancing is coming with R10 or R11 server updates.

Xbox 360 Review: Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Let’s get this nice and straight; this is NOT Modern Warfare 2, it does not play or feel like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and the only real similarities are that it is an FPS and involves shooting people in the face, sometimes the chest but preferably the head.

Bad Company 2 contains a single player mode and of course, multiplayer, which is the game's main draw.

Battlefield Bad Company 2

Battlefield Bad Company 2’s single player is a solid if unspectacular journey through a very short 6 hours of gameplay. But in that 6 hours you will be treated to some beautiful vistas that the Battlefield team have really nailed thanks to Battlefield's amazing visuals. There are some rough patches with textures but overall they stand out and look amazing as you wander out of a small enclosed jungle path and stand on a hill overlooking a sunlight clearing with massive mountains in the background. It looks amazing and is certainly a standout part of the single player campaign.

But while Bad Company 2's single player is a solid, enjoyable effort, it’s lacking in any real standout moments. It has lost the large, open battlefield feeling of its predecessor, instead going for much more linear levels. While this does help focus the action I can’t help but walk away with the feeling that its lost that "Battlefield” feeling that the series does so well. In some ways this is a good thing thanks to the more focused action, but it does take away some of the strategic flanking and sniping from the first Bad Company.

Bad Company 2 half price this weekend

Tired of long load times plaguing your game in Battlefield Bad Company 2 ? Well ATI has listened to gamers' concerns and released a new driver set in the form of the Catalyst 10.4 Preview, released specifically to address the long times experienced by players with Radeon series 5 video cards.

Unfortunately ATI has warned that the drivers won't work with HD5800 Eyefinity 6 products, but on the plus side they have announced via Twitter that a fix for series 4800 cards is due next week.

Now, I don't like to be one to flat out advertise a product, especially in something considered news, but its worth pointing out that until Sunday EB Games has Bad Company 2 at half price across all formats, both in store and online.

The PC version is just $44.97 and the PS3 & Xbox 360 versions are $54.97. That's well cheaper than any price I've seen locally and sure rivals both importing and the second hand market.

Load times fixed by ATI Beta Drivers
