Multiplayer gaming can lead to beautiful and unexpected moments as you interact with real humans in a virtual world filled with weapons, vehicles and funky environments. I’ve had my share over the years including variations on the scenario below – but alas I don’t run video capture when I play. Thankfully this chap does. Enjoy!

My game for the next six months (at least) will be
My favourite online fps series of all time is Battlefield (my favourite game of all time is Planetside – but I digress).
I’m currently playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 (mainly on PC – as erknel) whilst counting down the days to the release of Battelfield 3. I’m also keeping a watching eye on how well the pre-orders are going vs Modern Warfare 3 as having been fortunate enough to be on the BF3 alpha, BF3 deserves the commercial success that would come with toppling MW3.
Pre-orders on PC are tricky to find (with lots of digital ordering) – but its pretty easy to track for consoles, especially for America.

- On Xbox, MW3 is clearly winning – but a lot of Xbox users are spending their cash on the excellent Xbox exclusive Gears of War 3. With that in mind I think BF3 is doing great – post GOW3 it will be interesting to see how the the weekly change compares between the two games.
- On PS3, BF3 now has a significantly higher weekly change than MW3 – 4000 more!
Sweet. Roll on October…
