Battlefield Hardline | Done!

 Permalink
Well, this game didn't take all that long to complete the campaign side of the game!  What do I do in-between class stuff? Obviously play games ;-)  This was my first foray into a Battlefield game. Even though I have Battlefield 3 and 4, I was intrigued by the cop mechanic where you can arrest people instead of blowing them to bits, which really gave you an incentive to play the game in stealth mode, play it safe, and try to get as many arrests as possible.  It seems that I arrested so many criminals that I maxed out my expertise (level 15) at about 3/4 into the game.

Anyway, the game starts with you being transferred from one prison to another.  It seems that you are a corrupt cop. Then, flashback to three years ago when you were in the force to explore how you got there.  It turns out that you are not bent, but rather you were framed! The second half of the game is about you getting even with the people that put you there, including your former captain, who is pretty bent.  At the end of the game you take out your old captain, but I guess he saw something in you that made him think that you would be his heir, once you killed him of course.  At the end of the game you are left with the knowledge that there is a while network of corrupt cops at all levels out there, and you are left with a giant vault's worth of gold bars, cash, and jewelry.  What are you to do? (and scene!)



The story of this game was pretty interesting, collecting clues and evidence as you go through the game, the is he/isn't he corrupt was pretty interesting, and the spec-ops part was pretty interesting (albeit a little unrealistic for a beat cop, even one who is working vice). The game had an interesting ending, and if they wanted to make a sequel it would be interesting.  I see Nick (the main character) being more of a vigilante at this point, but I guess we'll never know, since no sequel seems to be forthcoming.

The game play seemed pretty standard for a first person shooter, with the exception of the "freeze!" and arrest mechanic.

In terms of achievements, just  playing through (without an eye toward achievements) I earned 25% of the achievements (23 of them) for a total of 480 points.  Some of the achievements seem to be on multiplayer, so I guess I won't be earning those anytime soon.

Have you played this? What do you think?

This week in Turkish charts

 Permalink

I don't think I've listened to any Turkish charts since I started this project, so this week I tried looking up some popular songs in Turkey.

Gök Nerede by Mabel Matiz
Verdict: Way too slow for me.  This is really sleepy-time music for me ;-)

Sev Trek: The spoof of spock

A little 'search for Spock' humor...  I actually don't remember that movie much, but I guess the enterprise gets destroyed (again) ;-)

The renegades are coming!

 Permalink
It's been about a year since the premier episode of Renegades (formerly Star Trek: Renegades), but the new one is coming out in a couple of weeks.  The series has gone a transformation from something set in the Star Trek universe to being its own thing, thanks to certain lawsuits over fan films... I am curious to see how things tie together, or if this will be just a reboot of the fan series into its own universe.

Facepalm politics

 Permalink
Found this past week on the web.  Sociopolitical commentary on the current state of world politics (well, at least North American and European politics). Wondering where this world is going to.
