Hair combed: check. Beard freshly trimmed: check. Wearing clean pants: check. After going over my pre-date checklist I was ready for my evening of hands-on time with not one, but two brand-spanking new multiplayer maps for the highly anticipated Battlefield 3. I was so nervous my palms were sweating. I mean sure, I’d played around with a beta or two before in my time, but this was a special, intimate event. Would I like the game? Would it like me or would I end up getting pwned like so many a noob over and over again? Fortunately for me we got along like peas in a pod.
