A big Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC patch is available

10:30 PM on 03.16.2010 // Brad Nicholson

According to a recent post on the official EA Battlefield: Bad Company 2 forums, the big ole' PC patch for the follow-up is now live. Among the host of fixes are a host of tiny single-player bug squashes, including a fix for character voice issues and low volume problems during the cut-scenes. The MP component has received the brunt of the work. Serious server browser woes have been addressed, and even flickering assets got an extra pass.

The full list of the fixes is available below the fold. If you have the Steam version of the game, it looks like your patch will be delayed just a bit more due to the service's lengthier QA process. EA apparently expects it to hit tomorrow.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.

Question: Is resident evil nemesis supposed to start off with a toolbox that has (unlimited) ink ribbon, 250 handgun ammo, magnum (w/ammo), shotgun (w/ammo) and two assault clips, in the first room of the game?????

BREAKING: Inner city man and "Pokemon Go" enthusiast found dead after entering rival gang's territory. "All he wanted was a Shiny Charizard!" according to an interview with a close friend. "We found him on the street, limp as a Magikarp stuck on a beach."

I completely forgot that Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow had an animated opening. Other than the compression, it actually looks really good today, and makes me wonder why Konami didn't commission some sort of Castlevania anime. That would have been sweet.

Gamestop has Splatoon amiibo up, if that's your thing. Totally didn't order and just cancel mine.

Anyone else having issues with italics in blogs? I went to save a draft, and when it loaded the post-saving creature I was working on, the entire text had been italicized and I now am unable to change it back. I've been possessed!
So that's $50 for the season pass on top of the game already costing sixty at launch, plus the monthly subscription fee for playing online on consoles. All in the name of getting the full experience! VYDEO_GEAMEZ!!

Races have been pretty intense, and the last Moto3 race in MotoGP 14 should have been too. Emphasis on the word [i]should[/i]. The AI riders ignored infringements in the last race, meaning everyone was disqualified except me. Derp.
Batthink avatarBatthink
Been playing MotoGP 14 on my Vita. A bit buggy (some menus you need to press circle to go back, then cross to select to proceed, otherwise nothing happens. And motorcycling helmets riding motorcycles in-race), but I've got the sweet spot in difficulty.

Daily VGM #21 (Witcher 1) - Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] I think this theme does a fantastic job capturing the feel of The Witcher 3. Epic, but also somber at times.
