The release of the Wii and the PlayStation 3 has lead to a bit of a lull in game releases this year.

Bullets dissolve concrete, kick up ground, smash steel and zip by your ears like deadly little insects. Vision blurs. Tanks, buildings, rocks--everything just a fuzzy outline of itself. You run. Breath rasps like rocks in a coffee can. Blood in your mouth. Blood in your lungs. Concrete against your back is cold. Can't stop thinking of a mortician's table. Spin out from around the corner, dust grinding under your heel. The 19 foot steel chicken's arms begin to spin. Fire. Dust around you again. Can't see anymore. Can't stand anymore.

The thrill of the wind as your bike escapes the shackles of training wheels. The moment before abbreviating the flaming dots on a birthday cake. What sad times we live in when shooting a demon has become as tedious as flossing during The View.

Whether it's a dust-up over the last Cheetoe in the bag or making eyes at your fourteen year old sister, everyone has wanted to shoot their friends with a manner of different assault weapons. While EA Games' Battlefield series of on-line blast-a-thons certainly weren't the first games to let you exact this fantasy, they've been among the best available upon their successive releases, and continue to be today.
