With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim currently setting the gaming world alight with superlative reviews and a plethora of videos permeating every social network out there, we thought we’d focus on another of this year’s big releases; Battlefield 3.
Gamers the world over are still playing this unique multiplayer shooter religiously and as a result there’s been some very creative videos to come out of the fantastically unpredictable online arena. Let’s take a look…
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 may seem like yesterday’s news to some gamers, but servers are still alive and kicking, as shown by this excellent video which showcases the skills of a player dubbed ‘Sent.’ There are some impressive kills on show here, but what sets this video apart from the other gloating footage on YouTube is the grade A editing which regularly ties up gunfire with the drum and bass soundtrack. You might want to lower the volume just a little bit before watching this one.
Damavand Peak may not be the best map when it comes to actual gameplay, but you have to love the base jump opportunity which regularly kicks off the action. That’s the subject of this video which sees the majority of one server all jumping off the map’s cliff at once and it looks spectacular. It’s nice when nations can put aside their differences for the sake of cinematic excellence.
Gamers are only still only just beginning to capture the greatness which is possible with the Frostbite 2 engine and this video is by far the most impressive so far. One eagle-eyed sniper spots a jet in the distance who happens to be heading straight for their lofty vantage point, and you won’t believe how he eliminates the threat. Epic skills indeed!
Last week we featured a trailer for Alex Kobbs’ recreation of Halo using only stop-motion animation and LEGO bricks, and since then the entire thirty-minute film has been released and it’s just as entertaining as it looked. Predictably enough the action involves red and blue teams facing off on Last Stand and it’s as funny as it’s impressive. Just wait until the action kicks off seven minutes in, we promise you’ll be impressed.
Wait a second, how did Saints Row sneak in here? Oh well, seeing as it is, check out this outright zaniness of this game in action. Let us set the scene; you’ve just completed a mission with your created protagonist, you’re rolling with a crew member and suddenly Sublime’s ‘What I Got’ comes on the radio, so what happens next? Why, both characters start singing along of course, but not only the chorus or the opening verse – the whole damn thing! Bless Volition for sticking with their unpredictable nature. Needless to say this video contains some lyrics that may not be appropriate for little ones.
