I got an email from Sony today.

Since I'm part of their Gamer Advisory Panel they send me offers to beta test future online games. Today they sent me an invitation to beta test BF2. So what did I do? I accepted of course!

More updates soon, they'll be emailing me soon about the test kits.

Gamespot has a preview of the game, including some videos.  Some of the levels look the same (Geonosis, Yavin, Jabba's Palace), but you also get a look at Courscant and an updated Kashyyk.

Check it out here.

I'm thinking about picking up the original for X-Box just to play with my gf's kids or my friends...  I don't do XBLive so the game obviously has less appeal to me than most.

Sitting with some buds it was fun though,a nd there's definitely customizing potential in them too, I sorta hate not owning them.

I wish the series had a linear story/sp set that went with it...  It's the perfect engine to do more FPS gaming on.  It'd be nice to see them use it that way in the future.

X-Box...  I don't think I've heard much of anything planned on XB360 yet...

I got BFI last night for $20 and the SP campaign is almost already beat.  The game's incredibly easy to play by yourself.  It's eyecandy though and ok for customs ideas and whatnot.  Having played it almost start-to-finish though I think I'll wait for a low price on BFII as well before buying.  MP gaming's not my thing, but the game's very fun to look at and has an enjoyable aspect to itself...

Okay, I played a few rounds with a few players on the Tantive IV earlier. I wanted to get into the bigger rooms, but I could never connect.

Levels are HUGE! You can go anywhere in the Tantive. I haven't played the other Beta level yet, Utapau, so we'll see how big that is.

Troops and controls are pretty much the same as BFI. In the Tantive level, you have five troops to choose from. Regular troopers (Stormies and Fleet Troopers), Heavy Artillery troops (RFTs and Stormies with rocket launchers), sharpshooters (Scout Trooper and I believe an Endor troop), and specialty troops (Wookiee Smuggler and Darktrooper). Pilots were replaced with a Bothan Spy and Death Star Trooper, and you can also play as an Imperial Officer. I may be missing a rebel soldier, though, as I'm freaking tired right now.

I'll post more later. Pretty fun, just like the first one.
