It seems we can’t get enough Battlefield 3. This week we try out the new End Game DLC which features some cool new maps and vehicles. As for news and game releases, it’s a fairly quiet week in the world of gaming.
The main things we talk about are the rumours surrounding the new Xbox and the massive PR storm of failure caused by a creative director at Microsoft. Aside from that, there’s been a tech analysis done of the new Fox Engine that’s definitely worth checking out. Also, what was thought to be an April Fool’s joke by Ubisoft turns out to be the real deal: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is scheduled to release on May 1st and there’s already been leaked footage of the game posted online.

As for games played, we’ve both been playing Spec Ops: The Line, since it was just added to the Instant Collection for PS+ members.
