BF:BC demo in advance for a few lucky ones

BF:BC demo in advance for a few lucky ones

Electronic Arts sent us 40 (20 for PS3, 20 for 360) codes allowing to download and play the demo version of Battlefield: Bad Company right now instead of having to wait until June 5 for the official release. To have a chance to get one, please come back at 9 PM (CET) and post a comment in the new news article that will appear right at that time on the front page with a funny picture and the console version of your choice. The first 20 for each console will get a code.

To post an image in the comments, use: [*img]link[/img*] without the *.

Also, pick the the version you want, and not "I can take either PS3 or X360". Pick one platform.

Edit after major confusion:
This should be the time for every major city:

This is some heavy shit, but:
GMT is actually UTC, where BST (British summer time) is UTC+1. CET is actually UTC+1 too, but as it's now summer we're not in CET but in CEST, which is UTC+2.

Meaning, I (Central Europe) watch Premier League games on saturdays at 4 PM, while the UK watches it at 3 PM. But then they decided to move the summertime setting date, which made it all even more dumb.

This should be the correct times for every timezone:

Remember that you have to post that in the next news article to get the demo, if you missed that let a friend translate it to you so you don't miss out.

A separate news article, just like when new images/new trailer is posted.

  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: Don't hate on pixel art you douche :) (25 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (28 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (31 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (33 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (47 minutes ago)
