Since the release of Bad Company 2 early last year (reviewed here), developer DICE have supported their popular modern day shooter with regular free updates. Focusing on realistic, tactical play rather than kill streaks and remote control cars, it quickly established itself as one of the best, if not the best, of the online shooters. Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam is the first paid expansion for the title, taking the action from war-torn towns and deserts to lush, Asian jungles.

The Electronics Boutique near me has good people working in it. They give me fun information all the time, sometimes when I don’t even ask them for it! Recently I heard them saying that Halo: ODST was walking out the door. Why? Because a rush of people wanted to play the new Multiplayer Beta of the upcoming game Halo Reach, and the lesser-liked Halo 3 prequel was needed to run it. Fun because it’s true. Back in its hey-day, more than a million people played Halo 3 online within 24 hours of its release. These days, it’s earned the new moniker of Galo (not pronounced Gah-lo either). As a first person shooter, it has fallen from its former glory.
