Thursday Night Battlefield Bad Company 2!

I'm assuming this is Thursday Night Battlefield 3 now?

Was about to ask the same thing haha.

Ya... Not sure if Trowan still lurks around here or not. May have to create a new thread.

That would require Trowan to stop hating us.

Origin has inconvenienced me once again. I started downloading the patch early this afternoon and it started fine, and I've been putting my PC to sleep and waking it up throughout the evening as I've been doing other stuff, and wasn't really paying attention to the patching process, but as of a couple minutes ago it was saying I was all set. Then I try to run Battlefield. And it tells me I need to update. The whole update. Again. So I'll maybe get on in an hour or so, if I'm lucky. Ugh.
Edit: Nope. Download is not sustaining speed. Not going to make it tonight.

Ah. Well, we should ask Certis to lock this one and have Ran or some longtime BFer to start a new one.

I honestly think trowan just hates me. Too bad I miss Indignant trailer park jokes, wreck jokes, Swampy, and Chief's singing.

Arise! For the TV series!?

What?

Bucking the trend of developing film adaptations of video games that will likely never come to fruition, EA has decided to partner with Fox and production company Happy Madison to develop a TV adaptation of a video game that will likely never come to fruition. In this case, it's the publisher's Battlefield: Bad Company franchise that's getting the live action treatment, albeit with sights set on the small screen.

Based on the description from Deadline's story on the subject, the series is being envisioned as a sort of modern A-Team, with a quartet of soldiers moving to the private sector, only to find themselves betrayed by their former commanding officer. Given the game's propensity for humorous explosions and off-color banter, one can surmise that this will not be played particularly straight.

Writer/producer John Eisendrath (Alias, Felicity) is heading up the project, along with Happy Madison's Doug Robinson, who has most recently served as executive producer of the enduring, if generally execrable David Spade sitcom Rules of Engagement.

Considering that most video game development deals like this have a tendency to fall apart, one cannot get too excited at this prospect--assuming one could get excited about a TV series based on an offshoot first-person shooter franchise developed by Adam Sandler's production company in the first place.

wut

Any excuse to continue to give Rob Schneider work, I guess.

And here you got excited that someone might want to play some BC2, which I loved way more than my limited time with BF3 before premium took over.

What about BF4 now that it's out?
