A geography lesson from Electronic Arts



  • bf3 north america

    That continental drift really sneaks up on you.



  • Southern Africa: It's about as violent as the USA.



  • Its seems that you are assuming that this is for the current epoch.



  • I wonder how many people in Antarctica play?



  • Maybe EA knows something we don't? Anyway, I'm not even sure where Namibia is, sorry namibian readers of TheDailyWTF forum.

    I'm pretty sure it's in NOT North America.

    Mexico, on the other hand, is.

    No, Mexico is in South Africa.

    No, he's right.  It's in North America.

    Specifically, in Indiana.

    More specifically, at 40°49'20"N, 86°06'56"W.

    Which is very close to Peru.

    And also not to far from Delphi, Frankfort, Alexandria, Lebanon, Edinburgh, Hebron, Bremen, Warsaw, Valparaiso and Kokomo (where are the waves?). Learning geography in Indiana has to be very confusing.



  • There are FOUR expansion packs now?!

    I thought it was pretty ballsey releasing a game with the first expansion pack to "Prepurchase" and releasing it a month after the game. Wow. That's just sad.



  •  Well, Namibia's ISO country code is NA, so...

    I'll give you a hint: it's not in North America. Unlike Mexico.

    It's about $90 for the base game and access to all 5 expansion packs (yes the 5th and final one is slated for March). That's about the same as someone starting WoW today oddly enough, obviously more if you've been jumping into the xpacs as they come out. At least with BF3 you don't have to pay monthly fees.

    It's also a completely different genre and made by EA. Pick your poison.

    If Back to Karkand was any indication, comparing Battlefield 3
    expansions to WoW expansions in terms of content is just a rubbish
    argument. A few new maps? I haven't touched WoW in some time, but I know
    it offers more then a few maps.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't hate
    expansions or DLC, I love both. I just thought it was incredibly silly
    to release a few new maps as an "Expansion", and charge a ton more money
    then if it were just called "DLC".

    The fact that the first "Expansion Pack" was released so close to release is also silly, but
    that's almost par for the course for major game releases, so no point
    arguing about it any further...



  • Funny... that is different than the map they have in San Francisco:

     

    World According to San Francisco



  •  Hmm, the "Temporary" oval at the bottom should be at the top, because that's going to be a plain ol' sea in a few years.
