Game Preview: Star Wars Battlefront, Fallout 4, COD: Black Ops III

I have to admit that I have been in a bit of a gaming rut lately. There have been a few decent games released recently. However, I seem to play them for a few weeks then fall back to CS:GO, BF4, or even StarCraft. This fall, this will all change with the release of a few highly anticipated games. Star Wars Battlefront, Fallout 4, and Black Ops III are all set to come out this November. I wanted to write a quick preview of these games in case you were thinking about picking them up.

How Battlefield 4’s Levolution is Changing the Multiplayer Game

Destructible environments and alterations on multiplayer maps have long been an element of first-person shooters. However, in many cases, these changes are superficial, simply giving you a bit of visual eye candy without actually adding to the game play. Battlefield 4’s “Levolution” is poised to change this concept. The term, a portmanteau for level evolution, uses various optional events and actions on the multi-player maps to change the shape of the battlefield over the course of the round. Sometimes the changes are small and require the players to specifically take advantage of the changes. Other times, the changes are so significant, they change the way that particular map is played.

The Benefits of a Gaming Mousepad

One of the peripherals that often gets overlooked is the mousepad, particularly if you are a gamer. For the longest time, I did not use one and didn’t think I really needed one. Then, on a whim, I decided to give one a try and I have never looked back. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of a gaming mousepad and why you may want to consider one whether you are a gamer or not.

Gaming Mousepads are Larger and Thus More Ergonomic

The first big advantage of a gaming mousepad is that it is larger. By being larger than the average mousepad, you won’t have to pick up and set down your mouse nearly as often. If you are a gamer, you know that needing to pick up and center your mouse can really throw you off. This is particularly true in any game that requires quick and precise mouse movement. By not having to pick up and center your mouse as often, your in-game performance will surely improve.

Ready and Excited for Battlefield 4

Over the past few weeks, I have had the chance to play the Battlefield 4 Beta. Like all betas, there are a few bugs and even some performance issues. I am sure these issues will get worked out before launch though. I had the chance to play the BF3 beta and it had much worse issues in its beta period than BF4 does right now. Even with these issues, the game was still very fun, which is a great sign for a beta.

Battlefield 3 was my first time playing a game in the Battlefield series. I have been more of a counter-strike and Call of Duty player before trying Battlefield 3. I decided to give this game a try since it was on sale and I was not disappointed. The graphics were far and away better than COD. Also, I found game-play itself very fun. It really had something for everyone with both large and small maps and tons of different game modes.
