Battlefield 3 – Beta – Destruction Tests and C4 Kills

Tried my luck at some demolitions in the Battlefield 3 Beta recently!  I managed to a few satisfying kills but ended up testing the destruction in various spots around Operation Metro instead.  I was a little disappointed at the overall lack of destruction but was impressed at the spots Dice chose to be destructible.  Some times it can totally change the dynamic of the battle giving players more room to setup defenses or allowing attackers new routes towards their objectives.  Subscribe to my youtube channel if want!  Thanks.

BF3 Commentary with Venesectrixzero #2

Here is another video of my brother and I playing some BF3 beta – we attempted to try and discuss something relevant to BF3, but pretty much failed.  Ended up bitching about overpowered weapons and discussing zombie survival techniques!  Don’t forget to subscribe to stay updated.

Battlefield 3 Beta Teamwork Gameplay with Venesectrixzero

My Brother (Venesectrixzero) and I teamed up last night to destroy some faces in the BF3 Beta. Map is Operation Metro! This video has only a few clips from hours of footage I took,
the part when we attack site B underground and hold it was one of the highlights of the night.

NOTE: I don’t have my mic on “listen”, I am actually using headphones the reason you hear me talk in the background is because my brother’s speakers are so damn loud it is
coming through his mic and back through my speakers which fraps is recording through all win7 sounds.
