Tomorrow I'm joining the army! Sweden has a fantastic thing - the (compulsory) military service, which today means that you *must* join the army, even though it's not hard at all to skip it. I kind of joined, so I'm being shipped away for 11 months. That doesn't mean it's time for me to say goodbye to Xboxyde, so I won't make this into a badass goodbye letter. See more inside.
I will be able to go home for 50-80% (I have no idea really) of the weekends, but I don't know how often I actually will go home. During some weekends of this year I will be a long distance from my home, so I will probably stay there. That means that I won't be writing that much news for Xboxyde in the upcoming year - at least I think so. Maybe I'll be able to have a laptop down there, who knows. Maybe I'll actually be able to at least visit the forums here and then.
Anyways, I won't make this into a sad letter where I write about how much I love writing here and read your comments and follow the hype of the 360 (and, err, Playsyde and PS3 of course!) - cause this isn't a goodbye, even though the topic says so. When I return I will buy the biggest HDTV I can find, together with a brand new X360 (I sold my recent one this week) - and 11 months of awesome games. I can't wait to buy Gears of War, NHL 07, Saint's Row and all the other kickass titles on the same day in June! I'll see you guys, and even though it won't be as often as it has been for the last months, I'll do my best to visit the place as often as I can.
I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (8 minutes ago)
Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (13 minutes ago)
It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (14 minutes ago)
On another note, people moaning about unlocks and lack of them need to remember that BF2 shipped with possibly less than BF1 and that is considered the pinnacle of the series... (26 minutes ago)
