What Does Battlefield Need To Be?

We're mere hours away from a huge Battlefield announcement and rumors are swirling all over the net. Some say they're taking it back to the World War era while others are thinking maybe an HD remake of the Bad Company Series. I'm here to break down what it needs to be and what it can't be.

They cannot jump the shark and go to space like COD. Battlefield, unlike COD, has always been known for its realism. They have never been about crazier, faster or just flat out absurd. The Bad Company series gave us destructible environments that solidified it as the goto franchise in the FPS genre.
They have to go back to what made us love the franchise in the first place. Gameplay that rewarded teamwork. The best memories I have of Bad Company were those moments where everyone in my squad was filling a role that led to execution of one goal. The moments when four individuals move as one like a flock of birds floating in the sky is harmony at the highest scale.

Sure Dice has made some mistakes in the past. I mean did anyone really like that Cops and Robbers thing they called Hardline? What about when they removed the ability to easily squad up with your friends in BF3? Companies make mistakes, but the best companies learn from those mistakes. I have faith that DICE is ready to bring the Battlefield franchise back to the glory days of Bad Company and when they do, I'll be ready!

MLB The Show 16: Sliders or Bust

I love stats and I love sports so baseball was invented for someone like me. For a while now I've picked up MLB The Show and every year is the same, I have to update the sliders to get the perfect simulation experience without sacrificing fun. If you're just looking for stats  Out of the Park Baseball   is what you need, but if you want more interaction, then maybe getting under the hood of The Show is in order. It all goes down like this. I get the game on or around day one and play it for an hour or two. I always think to myself, "wow this plays great out of the box. I may not have to change a thing". Then I sit down to play more and little things start to stand out. I don't give up or get any walks, I haven't hit a home run in 5 games or my batting average is sub .200. That's when I start my yearly search for a slider set that works for me. I need something that gives me stats that mirror the real MLB but also tricks me into the feeling that I'm

Why Doesn't PS Vita Remote Play Work Like The Wii U?

When remote play was announced I was all like, but it never really lived up to the hype on the PSP and PlayStation 3. When it was implemented on the PS Vita and the PlayStation 4 I was like, but again I was disappointed. When I got my Wii U and saw the gamepad for the first time I was like, but Nintendo had done it right. It doesn't have the range of remote play and you cannot use it through the net. But, it just works. It's seemless with responsive controls and no pixelation. When you walk too far away from the Wii U the controller just cuts off the video completely and tells you to go back to whence you came. Recently Sony introduced remote play with the PC. Steam has had this for a while and it works pretty good as long as your have a decent PC and a nice connection. I've ran through Black Mesa this way and didn't have any problems. Why doesn't remote play on the Vita and the PS4 work this well? Some people say it's your internet or router th
