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

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

    Mexico, on the other hand, is.

    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.

    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...

     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.

     PS. The image url is going to expire soon, since you linked the amazon cloud link, instead of the tumblr permalink.
