Updates and TF2!

It's been quite a while since I've posted anything.  I do apologize but things can get quite hectic and the interwebz kinda has to take a seat on the back burner.  But anyways, in case anyone has been under a rock for the last 3 weeks then allow me to be the first one to tell you that one of the more popular FPS's out is now free to play.  Yes, that's right FREE.  And that game would be Team Fortress 2.  Team Fortress is offered through Steam.  Now, that being said, with the free accounts you cannot trade hats/weapons with others.  TF2 is your basic shooter.  You've got you heavy class which uses the mini gun, it's powerful but slow.  You've also got a sniper, and medic.  But, they've got 3 not so common classes as well.  You've got the powerful Pyro who incinerates their opponents with a flamethrower/flare gun.  You've got the engineer who is probably one of the most vital characters.  They can set up teleporters so your characters can easily zap across the map.  They can also set up ammo/health stations and upgrade their turrets.  Then you have the sneakiest of them all, the spy.  The spy disguises themselves as the opponent to get behind enemy lines then take em out with a butterfly knife to the back.  The spy can also cloak themselves for a set amount of time and take out an engineers items with their zappers.  And last but least you have the scout.  The scout is weak but extremely fast.  They are the only class that can double (and triple if you have the weapon) jump.  They cap the capture points faster than any of the other classes.    All in all, TF2 is a great FPS.  I've had it for a few years now and never had anything bad to say about.  It's a good way to kill a chuck of spare time and now that it's free you have no excuse to be playing it!

Far Cry 3

I'm not sure if anyone here saw the conference for Ubisoft at E3 but it was particularly lackluster.  The only real game that caught my eye was the new Assassins creed (coming later) and Far Cry 3.  The newest installment of the Far Cry series picks up the action as it did in the first two.  This game looks promising but lets hope they fix the multi-player.  Only time will tell if this game will be all they have tried to hype it up to be.  If you haven't seen the trailer from E3 then go ahead and watch the video below.

F.E.A.R. 3

If you've been sleeping under a rock then I'll go ahead and clue you in on this one. F.E.A.R. 3 drops next week.  I personally have been a fan of the series for a while and cannot wait until the new one comes out.  From what I can tell it looks like they stick the the story then add a more mind fucks.  Plus...who doesn't love co-op mind fucks?

I know I'm not the only music lover out there.  As a matter of fact I will be heading to a concert tomorrow night.  I'll be seeing Doctor P and Flux Pavilion.  For those of you how don't listen to EDM or Dubstep they are two pretty damn good DJs.  I saw them at StarScape two weeks ago right before or after Skrillex played (it was all a blur).  I'll leave you all with a few of my favorite songs from them.  Perhaps you'll like it and take a dive deeper in to electronic music =].

BF3 DLC Content

So as you may or may not know, EA has decided to add DLC for the pre order of BF3.  This includes an early release of the Dao-12.  To see the full list click here.  With a majority of the FPS/Gaming community in an uproar as it causes an unfair advantage to players who decide or have the money to pre order the game.  How does everyone feel about the current state of affairs at EA?  I personally have been waiting too long for this game to get a butt hurt about a bit of DLC.  How does everyone else feel about the current situation?
