Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of its time with the power of Frostbite™ 2, the next instalment of DICE’s cutting-edge game engine.
Ego, and then Some: Step into the shoes of Duke Nukem, the steroidal One-Man Army who never fails and always gets the Babes
When first seeing this game I thought great things. I played the single player which i enjoyed, variety, graphics, a bit of a story line.
I put in the “battle code” so that I could play online and off I went. I enjoyed the first couple of games however as time went on I just gave up. You literally can’t do anything if you’re on a server with a lot of high ranked players. They have a deadly arsenal and what do you have? Next to nothing.
The multiplayer is so unbalanced it’s unplayable. Every time you spawn being taken out by some sort of bomb or missile isn’t fun.
It’s like when I posted about Xbox Live – Playing online and annoyances. Homefront needs to work on a better multiplayer environment where the servers are evenly populated with players within the same ranks rather than level 5’s against 61’s.
After being a PC gamer for many years finding a friendly public or clan server wasn’t very difficult. Over months you’d be known for respecting rules and able to give banter as much as take banter with fellow players or with the clan server administrators. If you don’t abide the server rules then you’d be kicked, carry on repeating offences then you’d be banned and 9/10 it would be permanent. Eventually you have no decent servers to play on.
When we ran our own 1942 and battlefield series games servers we were fairly lenient. A couple of warnings and then a ban, however would only be for a week anything further and then the offending player would be able to appeal on our forums. This is where console online gaming is limited.
Problems and Solutions
Console Game Server Rental
To make the whole online experience a better one, being able to rent your own preferred game server would stop all the monkeys out there who constantly base camp or just put a downer on the whole game. This would be 1 step forward as the server could be administered properly creating an environment the player would enjoy.
Game update to include exclusion zones
Googling about xbox server rentals returns absolutely nothing of worth while about the matter in hand, so what else would be done? This is where the other 50% from the gaming manufacture comes in. With the advancement of technologies how hard would it be to put a perimeter around say the main base where enemies can’t enter or they lose health. This approach could only exist on certain gaming platforms, ideal example would be Bad Company 2. Introducing a control mechanism, players on that server can have a fair game without worrying about some base camping rouge player wiping them out as they spawn would be a big thumbs up.
Game Server Software Update
Another option would be to introduce an auto levelling filter. What I mean with this is you get put on a server with players with around the same experience “level” as you. Who’s fault?
This is where playing online fails, miserably. Where does the blame lie? Is it the Xbox Live system or is it the game makers or 50/50? I recon it’s 50/50.
Any of the above would be a fantastic addition to online gaming especially on the xbox platform. These thoughts wouldn’t exactly being rocket science to introduce. This would then hopefully stop people like [S7H]beauregard92 stealing an allies helicopter from Bad Company 2 and base raping.
When it comes to looking for a web host you can rely and trust the options are far and wide. Things to consider is obviously price, support, performance,backup options and platform.
Looking across the variety of different clan web sites out there it would seem that the main platform for such hosting is Linux. Word Press has grown arms and legs over the years with such vast functionality straight out the box and having literally thousands of different plugins and themes.
I’m not going to list tens of hosts to choose from but i am going to list a couple of hosts I have personally used past or present.
Dreamhost web hosting
If you’d like a free .com with the above hosting enter “DHFREEDOMAIN”
1 and 1 web hosting
From simple webhosting to VPS servers to dedicated servers. I would like to mention that one thing stuck with me when i used 1 and 1 and that was support. The others on this page provide fantastic support with fast turn around, at time i used them took several days
CS New Media web hosting
Last and certainly not least. CS New Media are UK based and provide a good range of services from windows and linux hosting to premier hosting and VPS servers.
Bargain at £11.99 this game is a lot of fun especially online.
The call of duty series keep getting better and better.
Clan tag codes to show off your call sign on servers is just a paragraph away:
- blue – blue clan tag
- cyan – cyan (light blue) clan tag
- grn – green clan tag
- red – red clan tag
- yelw – yellow clan tag

This was game of the year and it’s now only £10. If you’ve never played this game then it’s a recommendation that you do.
You can unlock cheats by collecting laptops. They’re hidden throughout the whole game.
