Played a couple of games of Game Master last night. That was a real buzz. Getting the last couple of kills was real hard work. But lots of fun none the less.

For anyone wondering, the Double XP carries over to vehicle kills as well. So, if you shoot down an enemy jet while you are in a jet, you will receive 250 points at first, and then at the end of the round, you will have 500 points towards your next jet unlock/service star. Same goes for helis, tanks and IFVs. Just fyi

It makes for some pretty insane scores. Last night in a game of Caspian, I finished the round with 62,000 points

Finally got all the IFV unlocks. Man it is fun hitting the crap out of some building with one poor sap hiding inside.

Finally fired this up again. Resuming the SP. Pretty impressed actually- got all in-game settings maxed and so far, it is remaining playable.

Who knows, maybe after SP is done I'll dominate Bobbie Boi in some MP.

That's our Bicycle Bobbie!

I'm honestly very leery about MP- anytime I play an MP game with lots of players my ping sucks. I never enjoy it, wind up just getting pissed off cause for ever kill I get, I die like 30 times. Something tells me if my ping can remain decent I'll get schooled playing with ya'll veterans.

I would jump on some team death match server just to get a feel for it. There is double XP on now till like midnight, so you'll rank up a lot faster. Godspeed.
