The celebrate the 10th anniversary of EA's Battlefield series, the publisher is now selling select Battlefield PC games for $10 each. The drawback is that the discount is only through EA's Origin platform, and the sale is only for today. Sorry console junkies, you're not included in the discount.
To make it easy, here's a link to each Battlefield title:
Battlefield 3 ($10)
Large-scale battles take place both in urban cityscapes and wide open terrain perfect for piloting assault vehicles. Online multi-player features as many 64 players competing for prestige, as well as a host of unlockable upgrades and achievements. Choose from one of four classes: Assault, Engineer, Support and Recon.
Battlefield 2142 Deluxe Edition ($10)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam Expansion Pack ($10)

As the United States fights its most controversial war in Vietnam, Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam puts you into the heart of the conflict. Fight along treacherous winding rivers, through dense jungles and trap-infested rice fields, to the steps of ancient Vietnamese temples. Requires Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Digital Deluxe Edition ($10)
The best-selling Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is now available in a special Digital Deluxe Edition exclusively for download to the PC. This Deluxe Edition includes the classic Battlefield: Bad Company 2 game and the Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion pack.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ($10)
The rag-tag squad known as Bad Company is on the trail of a powerful EMP weapon that threatens the security of the United States. From Russia to the insect-infested jungles of South America, the squad will face hostile forces every step of the way in their attempt to recover the weapon before it falls into the wrong hands.
Battlefield 2: Complete Collection ($10)
The best-selling Battlefield 2 game set a new standard for first-person shooters. Now you can get the Battlefield 2: Complete Collection download for the PC, which includes all three expansion and booster packs: the Special Forces the Expansion Pack, Euro Force Booster Pack, and the Armored Fury Booster Pack.
OK EA let's get this straight: Bad Company 2 alone is $10, and the Vietnam expansion is $10. Yet the Bad Company 2 Digital Deluxe offers both for $10. Yep, that makes a lot of sense. Regardless, get these shooters before EA jacks the price back up on Friday.
Oh well BF3 is not much fun most of the time anyways; so many cheaters its hard to get a fair round in.
People talk A LOT about bad experiences with BF3 or other online games in general, maybe the experience isn't bad because of the game, but because of how you act to other people on these servers. People don't want to play with dicks and get kicked. Granted yes, there are a few bad eggs who own servers, but for the most part most of the servers are great. But I see A LOT more people who join servers to cheat/hack/troll and get kicked then go and complain somewhere on how bad such and such server is or the game itself.
And most of the guns aren't better. A lot of players use the starter guns as their main gun. They aren't bad. It's just you. I'd say most the guns are more balanced than the guns in COD will ever be.
That was it for me. I'm done with EA.
