    Bad Company 2 (again)

    it also surprises me how many Recon we can have and how few enemy get tagged up. like it was too much to press "Q". Familiarity with maps would help that alot and a moving sniper would rock on many conquest maps. Funny you say this. I've become so accustomed to pressing Q, occasionally my instincts get me killed because I go to press Q instead of fire when an enemy is right in front of me. That said, I went to play a bit of TF2 with a friend, and got frustrated cos I kept changing my weapons accidentally...(Q quick swaps weapons....no spotting :P ) On topic, I actually gave BC2 another go today. It was ultimately disappointing. I didn't believe it when I noticed it ran worse than BF3 on my computer. The controls didn't feel right. Found all my old battlefield stats, and unsurprisingly noticed I have only 26hrs in BC2, as opposed to 120hrs in BF2 and 146hrs in BF3.
