Sadly YouTube applies way too much compression for the difference to be apparent between 900p and 1080p in this video. I can't see it in this video but when we played the game on the PS4 itself after the patch my girlfriend and I were both really stricken by the difference. It was very noticeable.

We miss Battlefield Friends! With the Battlefield 4 beta and the launch right around the corner interest in Battlefield stuff has never been higher so this is a very unfortunate time to suddenly stop making them! When will there be more?

Thanks to the talented team at Sprout Social, the new version of Sprout Insights is finally live with responsive, mobile-friendly design and better content discovery. Been buried neck deep in this for weeks, so glad to see it live!

A long-awaited sequel to one of my all-time favorite barely heard of indie games is struggling for dear life on Kickstarter. Does a steampunk online shooter/LAN party take on the party game Mafia sound awesome? If so, join in and help these guys get it made!

For reasons escaping understanding I think Microsoft is actually trying to actively prevent people from buying Windows 8 System Builder. There's no mention of it at all on their new "buy Windows 8" website — just a download for upgrades. You can buy a DVD version from third-party retailers, but I own 4 computers and only one has an optical drive because, y'know, 1997 was 15 years ago.

But hey, I suppose it's not like there are millions of people who build their own PCs, dual boot Windows on Macs, or regularly use virtual machines for work. And it's certainly not like half the computers made nowadays don't have optical drives. Oh, wait.

That's so odd. I've put in about 30 hours of BF4 on PC and have not had these issues at all that I've noticed. And boy did I ever notice it on BF3, it was ridiculous. It's so odd that this could be an individual issue? Not sure why that would be.
