    New car

    As I will retire in September or so, I will part with my company car - the lovely but expensive Volvo XC60 T8. Was thinking of getting a VW ID i.e. the new electric car but decided to wait going electric as 1) reluctant to buy the first version and 2) delivery too late vs. need for new car and...

    BFBC2 revisited

    As you know I’m not very fond of BF1 nor BFV and sure, BF4 ist still fun and also BF3 but I’ve tried BFBC2 lately as a ”test”. Well, the soldier movement is a bit clunky and some features of later games are missing but still, it brings back the joy of BF that the latter games are missing. I...

    O Holy Night – version 2 To get you started: O violent Night! The tracer bullets are brightly shining It is the night of the loathed camper’s death! Long lay the clan in ball-scratching wrath pining Till he was located and the C4 felt its worth. The thrill of his demise the weary soul...

    A Small Bf Poem...

    Had to get it out of my system :LOL: Every other year or so BF comes in a new shiny version trying to cater for each player’s special combat perversion. I believe however that in the latest one they have somehow lost the magic and turned out to be just an expression of EA’s cash...

    Headphone Tip

    I have been searching for a wired closed headphone with (at least close to) HiFi sound and some oomph in the bass department (without becoming too overwhelming) and have tried/bought various headphones from Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic and such.

    Those Were The Bf2 Days

    Once upon a time there was a battle Where we used to shoot a bullet or two Remember how we laughed away the hours And dreamed of all the t-bags we could do Those were the days my friend We thought they'd never end We'd died and spawned forever and a day We'd kill the foes we choose We'd...

    Bf1 - Which Version Is "best"?

    Hello people, I may decide to take the plunge and buy BF1 despite all problems, perhaps taking advantage of the Black Friday sale but I'm not sure about which version to buy and if my rig is sufficient. Question 1: I would prefer to get all maps but I don't care about early access to maps...
