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.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.
