Battlefield 1943, Coming to a Console Near You… This Week!

It's almost exactly kind of not how I remembered it.

Make no mistake, this is an amazingly orchestrated cop-out of yet another original article.  I promise I’ll have one up next week.  That or a review of the game I will fondly plop down some trailers for to get you pumped for wednesday or thursday of this week.  That’s right PNG’ers, Battlefield 1943 will drop this wednesday on XBLA and thursday on PSN.  How many of you also intend on picking up this instant gem?  Hopefully quite a few, as we need to get 43 million community kills to unlock the 4th map, Coral Sea.  Looks to be a dogfighter’s paradise.  Hit the jump for the trailer’s for each of the 4 levels in the game.

PNG Daily 7/2/2009: No, We Are Not Bringing Them Back

I really hate puns... but I couldn't pass this up.

Thursday’s original daily posts are in a bit of a flux at the moment, so you’ll have to deal with a more… traditional daily.  We’re not bringing that format back, but it definitely works in a bind.  Jim usually does the Thursday articles, but due to a new addition to his family in the form of a cute little baby boy, he can’t make it to the web right now.  Feel free to publicly send your congratulations to James.Bradford@PixelsandGrids.com

Now down to business.  Click for news about Fallout 3 discounted on Steam, Battlefield 1943’s release date, Dawn of War 2’s beta patch, TF2 tabletop RPG, and my irrational dislike of Michael Pachter.

PNG Daily 5/14/2009: BFF (Battlefield Forever)

It's almost exactly kind of not how I remembered it.

It is such a slow news week and we here don’t really expect it to pick up much until around E3 at the beginning of June.  Despite this fact, the Daily’s must go on!  Today I link you to an article over at Giant Bomb that has some quotes from Lead Producer Patrick Liu of Battlefield 1943.  It has some quips about why there’s only 3 classes, 3 maps, and a 24 player limit.  I’ve always been somewhat of a fanboy of the Battlefield games and especially of their soundtrack.  I’m looking forward to when this drops on XBLA for 1200 points and PSN for $14.99 in June.  You’ll find a trailer for the Iwo Jima map over at Giant Bomb or after the jump in this article.

We’re doing our weekly podcast tonight so feel free to e-mail, leave comments, or hit up our twitter with anything you’d like us to talk about.  It was after all a slow news week so we can almost ensure we’ll talk about anything you’d like.

PNG Daily 4/23/09: It Should Be Illegal

Cosplay Fever!

Picture a cocaine dusted crack rock with a creamy heroin center.  You got that?  Alright, now picture Peggle for free inside of World of Warcraft.  You should be getting the same picture of you huddled in a corner in your underwear weeping silently after selling your cat to pay your WoW monthly fees.  Is it sad that I want to subscribe to WoW or start a trial just to play the 12 new themed stages complete with earnable talents?  It is, isn’t it?  At least I’m not thinking of purchasing this!

While we’ve only been ranting and raving about the core Arkham Horror boardgame on our weekly podcast, there are many expansions that we have yet to pick up and play.  Fantasy Flight is running a preview of an expansion to Arkham Horror called Innsmouth Horror set to release in May.  The first preview shows a sample story card that is meant to enhance the story of each investigator.  If you satisfy the conditions on the card you are granted some sort of bonus.  If you fail however, you get some sort of penalty.  The second preview has a sample card of a new Ancient One you can fight.

A couple of us here at PNG remember when Battlefield 1942 used to be hot.  We used to throw LAN parties and blaze our guns from sunset to sunrise.  Recently EA announced that they’d be releasing 3 updated maps from Battlefield 1942 over Xbox Live calling it Battlefield 1943.  Kotaku has a post up with a launch window of June and a pricepoint of $15 for Battlefield 1943.  What really grabs me from this post is that they’re stating it’s being built with the Frostbyte Engine from Battlefield: Bad Company.  It’s going to be interesting playing those maps all over again in a destructible environment. 

We’ll be recording another episode of our weekly podcast tonight.  If there’s anything you’d like us to talk about or you have a comment you’d like us to read while we’re recording, fire an e-mail off to png@pixelsandgrids.com.  If you get it to us before 9:30, we’ll be sure to read it!
