Bad Company 2's New Map "Harvest Day" a vehicle focused map that BC1 players will remember

Harvest Day is the last map to be released in VIP Map Pack 7. This fan-favorite comes from the first Bad Company, but is upgraded for all 4 modes, plus a swath of vehicles of all kinds. Rush games begin as tanks of both sides clash in the fields. Later on the action gets a lot more heated as the defense gets pushed into the village. Squad Deathmatch and Squad Rush take place exclusively in this village, where players can take advantage of collapsible buildings to win the upper hand. The map is at home though in Conquest. There are 4 bases that are spread out around the entire map in a diamond shape. Click the pic to visit the official bfbc2 blog and read more about this awesome new map, Harvest Day.

One of blogspot's best, Hyperbole and a Half.

This is a webcomic I've picked up on from blogging, it's Hyperbole and a Half and it's one of the best I've ever had the joy of reading. Today's post features an awesome artwork style and I can't even look at this comic without laughing, just go read it already, just click the first frame below.

Bad Company 2 New Map "Cold War", a close-quarter battle map destined for Rush.

Today Zh1nt0 unveiled the third map in VIP Map Pack 7 'Cold war'. This map is a rehash of the russian village in the single player campaign. In stark contrast to Heavy Metal, Cold War places the emphasis on the infantry units and head-on firefights between players. This is good news to me, as my favorite class is Medic.

Overall I'm pretty excited that they're bringing one of my favorite single player maps to multiplayer, in rush no less! Read the official post about the new map here, and be sure to check back tomorrow when they show off Harvest Day.

Feeling bored? Like south park?

Hey guys, today I want to introduce you to a blog that I found yesterday. He's got so many links to awesome Dubstep songs, I haven't even listened to them all yet! He also links some cool videos (You should watch People are Awesome). But the best part are his South Park videos. He's had a little trouble finding a reliable host, but once he gets that worked out, it'll be smooth sailing. Just click the doggy to visit his blog!

Sneak Peek at Heavy Metal, one of the maps in Bad Company 2's VIP Map Pack 7

DICE announced a new map for Bad Company 2 today by the name of Heavy Metal. This conquest-only map, bigger than Atacama Desert, has three bases spread out over the vast terrain. I can see this quickly becoming a favorite map of mine, especially if they implement a Rush mode.

FrozenDEFENCE [Base defender HTML5 game]

Thought my readers may be interested in a cool base defense game called FrozenDEFENCE. I'm not big on defend-your-base type games, but this one has me hooked. The simplicity of the gameplay and the myriad number of strategies means you just may get hooked too.

The many "What?"s of Don Draper

What this blog is going to be.

Hello everyone, I'll get this out of the way by saying this is gonna be focused on a few areas of tech. I'll try and keep the main focuses on the Android platform and everything that encompasses, also on gaming platforms, those being the xbox 360, Nintendo's wii, and N64, and most of all PC. I'll also be throwing in random posts about anything that I find interesting, just to keep things interesting.

We'll start out today with a fun webgame that I just recently stumbled on. Zwingo is a flash game where your mouse has a ball attached to it, and the object of the game is to defend a larger white ball against black balls that threaten moving it out of the center. At the end of each round you're able to use xp to improve your chances. Every 10th level, a boss fight occurs. In order to damage the boss, you have to hit it with your ball at speed. You'll know you hit him when you see sparks.

Overall this is a cool flash game that I could see myself spending more than a couple minutes on.
