    To those whom it may interest, Gamespot is hosting a massive giveaway of thousands of Battlefield: Heroes keys. Many people accuse the game of being a ripoff of TF2 (yeah, because a cartoony class-based FPS is such an original idea), but it seems like good fun. :)

    What is Battlefield Heroes?

    Battlefield Heroes is a cartoon-style action game currently under development by EA Digital Illusions CE.

    The game features context-specific third- and first-person shooter perspectives. Heroes will be the first Battlefield game to be released under Electronic Arts' new "Play 4 Free" model, which will see the game released for free with revenue generated from advertising and micropayments. Advertisements will appear on the website and the 'front-end' of the game although none will appear in-game, while micropayments may be made for additional items to customize the appearance of players' avatars without any gaming advantage. The game is said to be placing less emphasis on skill and strategy, and will be less demanding on computer specifications than the previous games of the series to increase the audience base. In addition, a system will be in place to match players of similar skill levels together for fair play.

    Just Give Me The Link!



    I got emailed about it the other day and claimed mine. Anyone who is interested should sign up - I haven't used it yet as the process of making a whole account on the Evil Association Games website isn't something I'm keen on doing anytime soon, but to those who sign up post your IGNs here. Perhaps TF2Maps.net could hold a little get-together?

    Now, to end on a lighter note! :D

    This has to be the most diabolical sales pitch I've ever made.

    I played the closed Beta and well I did not find it that fun.
