A couple months ago I posted some negative information about BF2142 due to their in-game advertising. Subsequent to posting that entry, I read more information that led me to believe it wasn't as onerous as it sounded.

So I bought the game.

No ads. None. Yes, there are billboards where the ads should be, but I get no ads.

Even if there were ads it wouldn't be onerous - they'd just appear on some billboards here and there, so that seems pretty easy to deal with.

But I don't get them. And I'm sure the reason is that my home network is entirely behind a firewall/router. Odds are that BF2142 configures the Windows XP firewall on my actual desktop to open the necessary port for the ad software to work. But it can't reconfigure my primary firewall, because that's a totally separate device; a device I'm pretty sure is blocking the download of the ad content.

So I've been playing BF 2142 quite a lot of late. Yes, my life has been incredibly hectic due to family health issues, work issues, yard work in the fall, getting new windows in our house and selling Christmas trees as a fund raiser for the Optimist Club of Eden Prairie. But I've chosen to give up some sleep to play BF2142 - it is that good!

There's just nothing like walking across the battlefield in a three story tall tank, blowing the crap out of the enemy as you go!! :)
