Biden & Battlefield
"This week Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a senior center in Iowa. Which explains why the seniors were like, 'Is this Hell?'" –Jimmy Fallon
Poor Joe Biden. Personally, I think our VP is a rather nice fella. Unfortunately, he just isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. We knew this long before he was ever VP - I mean, he was caught plagiarizing time and again. Then there are all those wonderful gaffes caught on film:
And liberals like to make fun of Palin. Wow.
Well, ol' Joe did it again with this incredibly racist statement a few days ago:
Remember when Bill Clinton complained that Team Obama "played the race card" on him? Well, it looks like they were planning on going back to that well in their desperation to talk about anything but Obama's abysmal record. Unfortunately for them, this time they went too far and needed to put Joe back in the attic.
Now, what has this got to do with EA and it's Battlefield series? Well, today I read an interesting story that the next installment of EA's famed Battlefield series, Battlefield 4, is not going to be moving on from the modern era:
Given Battlefield 4's quick turnaround after 3, it's probably unsurprising to hear that the game won't be straying too far from its predecessor. Developer DICE isn't planning on following the footsteps of Treyarch's Black Ops 2 by going into the future. Instead, the game will be set in the "modern day as it is."
Speaking at GDC Europe, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson talked about how "we feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful."
