Out of the Blue

Happy Summer! Unless of course, you live below the equator, in which case, happy winter!

In addition to the solstice, today is also the day Battlefield 2 should be first appearing on store shelves, I'm looking forward to some modern warfare action. If the demo has proven anything to me, though, it's that I'm be best suited to the role of a grunt. I can sort of be trusted to operate a tank, but even that is pushing it towards the Peter Principle... Among all those with ambitions to command or be a hot-shot flyboy, I'll be the guy asking what my orders are.

The commander screen is pretty cool, in fact it's probably my favorite way to play BF2. Setting up a UAV, zooming in, and then telling a squad exactly where each individual bad guy at the spawn is makes the game for me. The only real problem I have with it is I probably spend about half the time asking people to "please join a squad. if you arn't in a squad please join one". If any of you play on public servers join a fucking squad so I can give you instructions!
Ok, so maybe it'll grow on me if I give it a chance, but I'm mostly too exhausted nowadays with a demanding job and two small kids, that all I want is something that I already know so I can just blast away! This last week, though, I've woke up in bed in the middle of the night, still with clothes on and my oldest kid sleeping next to me...
