It runs so poorly on my console that I stopped playing after an hour. From what I've played, it might be a short fun time with friends but anything beyond that, I'm not so sure. I'm going to wait until I get a more powerful system to play this anyway so I'll be intently watching its reception in the coming weeks.

Everyone just said, "go vote", they did not say whom to vote for… *wink*

Here’s what I think. In any other situation, I would say vote for the party that is closest to your principles or simply don't vote, either is a valid option. However, this is a very unique situation. Despite what you think of the Democrats and the current state of politics, Trump is clearly a loon that needs to be stopped. And stopping him won't just benefit America, but the world. Do whatever it takes to destabilise his power and then go back to your usual business.

Didn’t Microsoft already announce a new Xbox in development? There’s also a lot of talk about the next PlayStation too. The next generation of consoles is probably going to happen sooner rather than later but what we don’t know is how much of a leap that will actually be from the X. You’re probably right in getting an S if you haven’t already got a 4KTV. It might be better to wait it out until E3 next year.

It wasn't enough years ago, it's unacceptable now. 1TB is an abysmal amount of data.

I'm going to say Civilization? Hearts of Iron? Railroad Tycoon? Football Manager? Cities Skylines? When I think of a typical 70 year old man. I think something that is very down to earth, based in reality with little to no story. The listed games will allow him to take his time learning the controls, mechanics. They are relatively easy to play, or can be made to be.

Based on what I've seen and played, I don't really see an issue here. It's been respectable so far, at least as much as any other Battlefield game has been in the past. It’s definitely not been anything as you described.

I’m not entirely sure why WWII is where you cross the line. Why? War as a concept remains the same in any setting you put it in. It still causes the loss of life, it still causes misery. All those modern military shooters 7 or 8 years ago were inspired by real conflicts or possible future conflicts. Explain Black Ops 1 to me. What’s the difference?

I'm actually enjoying this more than I thought I would. I’m sort of iffy on Battlefield games but with this one I’ve consistently done better. It's more Battlefield but with a lot of changes and improvements to how everything sort of feels. It feels smoother, snappier, more responsive basically. It helps that people have less health now so they don’t sponge an entire clip.

The only thing I would absolutely change from this beta is their respawn system, just give me an option to just die so I can respawn.

They certainly put thought into it, I give them that.

Now the question is... is it unprofessional fridays or unprofessionalest fridays? This is crucial.

You're being a bit presumptuous and unnecessarily aggressive here. No one here is questioning your literacy skills and you make it sound that people who don't like written reviews are illiterate and/or lazy. You also disregard anybody who has dyslexia for example. For them, reading isn’t the best way to convey information. I understand that you prefer written reviews and I’m not saying we should do without them entirely, if there was a way for them to accommodate both I’m there with you but this is just not how I would have approached it.

I’m all for this format btw.
