    Thing is, I wouldn't trust DICE to pull it off. I don't know if it's frostbite or just a different design ethos but they still haven't topped BFBC2...
    Unless you mean just a reskin/fps bump...

    No past tense needed, it still is gaming bliss!

    @richardiox The low resolution and 30fps is a bit jarring to begin with, but you soon get used to it. It would be nice if the SX could do its magic but I doubt any update will appear for an 11 year old game.

    They rolled out One X enhancements to even older games without any developer intervention. But no, I agree, I very much doubt this will ever get touched up unfortunately.

    Doesn't it only work if the frame rated wasn't capped at 30? I've not paid too much attention to it but I think I remember see a DF article that mentioned it (might be wrong though as I tend to skim read DF as it's incredibly dull).

    Games with uncapped framerate mostly run at a locked 60fps on Series X already. The framerate doubling is different. It's an in house tech by the MS back compatibility team that enables legacy games with a 30 cap to run at 60 - crucially without any change to the game code needed by the developer.

    In that sense it's similar to the "heutchy method" on One X that for example enables me to play OG Xbox games at 4K but unlocking the resolution.

    In short, it's going to be technically feasible to have 60fps BFBC2 but unlikely it'll happen.

    I loved this game, had some of the best & funniest gaming sessions ever on the Oasis map. My microphone on my headphones is a bit crap and short so I probably won't be able to talk but anyone can add me if you like -

    @richardiox that's interesting, didn't realise it was a separate thing. I can't imagine a 2010 game is high on their priorities, but hopefully we'll see it.

    Added you Ben.

    I played some games with @triarri last night. It felt like the old 360 days, amazing how quickly you get back into the swing of things. Most of the other players were pretty high level but there we were doing pretty well.

    @macmurphy and @red_bool looking forward to you both playing again, will start to feel like the old gang back together 😃

    Would be nice to see a few more players - my last go was a bit sparse and I seemed to find the same guy in every lobby - I think he must have never stopped playing it.

    Presented me with my arse on a lovely silver platter every... fucking... game... :-D

    There is definitely a hardcore group who play regularly still, although there were only a few of them who were far better than everyone else so was manageable. The matchmaking is weird, I struggle to find a full game, whereas others find one no problem.

    From the looks of it we'll be able to fill up one side by ourselves anyway...

    Or we could fill a few on each side which would be a good opportunity to get back those tags that bugged out for me...

    Yeah, some good games last night, very nostalgic! Being Battlefield it still suffers from the, Why is our whole team attempting to snipe helicopter pilots while the enemy team is arming our M-coms syndrome but it's great nonetheless.

    If you all have game pass it might be worth giving Battlefield 1 a go, it's pretty fun too and still well populated.

    I have to admit, I fired RPGs at the chopper** a couple of times whilst an enemy was stood near me...

    Also, I'm never letting you drive a tank again, I don't think we last more than 15 metres before getting blown up by a mine 😃

    ** well, in the vague direction of the chopper, I never got close to hitting it.


    I've got 4 of AcidSnakes tags, maybe he just imagined getting ours?

    I thought you were watching out for the mines! What else is a gunner for?

    I remember having 12 of Andy's tags. Don't remember Triarii's ones, but I'm guessing it was more than one...

    Looking forward to Friday night now.
    We've played two nights but I still haven't had a match on Laguna Presa, Isla Innocentes, Port Valdez, White Pass and criminally Arica Harbour...

    Not to rub it in, but we had 2 epic games on Isla Innocentes last night; 2 good teams fully playing the objective and epic last gasps victories both times. You know it's getting serious when someone suggests smoke we need smoke grenades.

    The collection of maps in this game is one of the best collections I've ever played - it rivals the original Unreal Tournament just for the sheer quality.

    I can only remember disliking Harvest Day/Heavy Metal due to them being sniper central; any other map I loved, particularly the snowy ones.

    Why not? No headset. Might try the SP campaign again.

    Hahaha, I just knew it would be that song!
    That's great!

    Also, smoke isn't always a last resort. Always handy when disarming in the open or just to break a well formed defensive line...

    Smoke is always a good tactic, it's more that we only think about it when shit gets serious.

    @red_bool - pretty sure most of those 604k views have been me over the years!

    Woo! Just need to to send a few messages to the old players who are no longer on EG (RIP) and they'll almost have the full gang back!

    ---------

    I'm going to start a game around 10pm on Friday, if you see me online and in BC2 then either join the game and/ or party, or send me a message.

    Depending on how many people join it might take us a while to get everyone onto the same team and in squads.

    Don't forget to add EG as your clan tag so you can show everyone you mean business!
