I had no idea there was that much silicon in Japan. But it only makes the balance that much more impressive, doesn't it?

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

Battlefield 3 Preorders Get Nailed Down, But Online Pass Still Up in the Air

BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM. RATATATATATATA. KERPPERW! DIE! DIE! DIE!

Oh-- Oh I'm sorry! I didn't see you there. I'm just getting ready for the FPSF season. FPSF? First Person Shooter Fall season. Easily one of the biggest titles coming to retail this FPSF season will be straight outta EA and DICE. That's why they've figured out exactly what preorder-goodies will be available at each retailer.

While all preorders will receive the "Back to Karkand" classic map pack DLC for free, you're given a choice between GameStop, Best Buy, and Amazon.com or... you know, not preordering and missing out on the incentives. Here's the break down:
  • GameStop: Physical Warfare DLC and free Prima Strategy Guide with PowerUp Rewards card
  • Best Buy: SPECACT Kit and 8 Multiplayer Skins
  • Amazon: Exclusive Multiplayer Dog Tags
In other Battlefield 3 news, DICE Executive Producer Patrick Bach has stated that BF3 will most likely require players to have an online pass to access its multiplayer modes:

The whole idea is that we're paying for servers and if you create a new account there is a big process on how that is being handled in the back end. We would rather have you buy a new game than a used game because buying a used game is only a cost to us; we don't get a single dime from a used game, but we still need to create server space and everything for you.

I prefer buying new games anyways. I just bought a new copy of Crysis 2 despite no online pass. Honestly, is anyone surprised by BF3's online pass plans?
