Shooter season 2011 is really in full swing, the generic B title games have done themselves a favour and neatly moved out of the way of the big boys coming through. First of the big two is Battlefield 3, tipped as a Modern Warfare beater by many, this really is EA’s chance to stick it to Activision. I can’t personally comment whether it will be better than MW3, I know they are certainly different in the overall approach but both share the limiting theme of a modern combat environment. It seems a greater disparity lies with the game machine you decide to play on, various problems to be had by all. With the PC version described as the best looking, I thought I’d knock up a quick gameplay video for all you Midlife Gamers. I would’ve loved to record the video in 1080p at 60fps, however my PC is not powerful enough to effectively play the game and record it at the same time. Instead I recorded 540p and upscaled to 720p in post-production. So this isn’t the sharpest you will see Battlefield 3, but all the effects are turned on and the sound is as sublime as ever.
