X3F Live invades Battlefield, update on features [Update]


Update: After playing a single online game, EA's servers booted us right out of play and wouldn't allow us to reconnect. We'll reschedule a real event soon.

You may have noticed some of our regular features have been MIA in recent weeks. In order to prepare for E3 and make time (and room) for special features, some of our content has been put on a temporary hiatus. Until the madness that is E3 subsides we're putting a hold on Community Content, Would You Rather and Points>Life -- technically, just Xav. You may see random special editions of our content during the event as special bonuses, but we're just giving you the heads up incase you were wondering where your favorite feature is.

As you may be aware, if you listened to the latest X3F Fancast -- Richard, Dustin and Alexander will be bringing the show on the road with special podcasts as E3 progresses. It's another way we're keeping everyone at home up to date while allowing the home crew to recharge the batteries.

One thing we can't put on hold for now is X3F Live and considering the popularity of Battlefield: Bad Company on our friends list we're going to be game hunting later tonight (again, just Xav). So tonight from 9 to 10 PM EST watch out for Gamertag: Snypz and hopefully we can cause some mayhem together. This isn't an organized event, but Xav is looking for some game time before the craziness takes over!

X3F TV -- Points>Life: Shedding Light on Secrets


Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

This week in Points>Life we tackle the return of Alone in the Dark. From developer Eden Games and publisher Atari, Alone in the Dark is a strange game to judge. What it does well, it does very well but major technical issues could halt your desire to progress through the survival-horror classic's revamp. Either way bad game design has never been an issue for achievement fiends and this week we uncover three secret achievements in the game.

Due to Canada Day celebrations Points>Life is hitting today rather than Tuesday. Expect Points>Life next week at its regular time.

X3F TV -- Points>Life: It's About Timing


Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

This week in Points>Life we tackle the Matt Damon-less action shooter, The Bourne Conspiracy. Based on a modern interpretation of the books by Robert Ludlum (we think they mean the movies), you play as an amnesia struck Jason Bourne. This week's tip showcases an easy trick that utilizes a tutorial in the game to claim a cool, free, 25GP.

Points>Life: Collect-a-thon!


Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

Throughout the ages in the world of game design, the idea of collecting random items was developed to artificially extend the life of a game. Why only include a five-hour campaign when you can stuff that length with two hours worth of collecting junk, right? Until the advent of the Xbox 360 such collect-a-thons had no business in our games, but for those of us addicted to Achievement Points it has become a necessary evil in our war to 1000 points.

This week in Points>Life we're taking a look at some recent offenders on the Xbox 360 and attempt to show you where all those knickknacks, trinkets and gems are hidden. Sit back, it's going to be a bumpy and boring ride to Collect-a-Thon city!

X3F TV -- Points>Life: Fire It Up!


Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

This week in Points>Life my unhealthy obsession with CBS' The Unit continues as I picked up Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and was told of a glitch that made ranking up a lot easier. While a few videos have been released with this information, we've collected some of the best practices and uses for the trick in one video.

One thing we need to stress with this glitch is updating Rainbow Six Vegas 2 patches the exploit. There is a way around that, but we're not recommending that. That's what the comments are for!

Also, watch The Unit.

Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

This week in Points>Life we're taking a stroll through memory lane and Team Rainbow's first vacation to Vegas. In Rainbow Six: Vegas there are two easy tips we can give you, the first is a simple reminder that some people may not realize and the second is a glitch in the end of the game that could save you a headache while trying to end the mission.

Both tips are classic, meaning they're old ones ... but somewhere someone is picking up this game for the first time and we're here to help!

X3F TV -- Points>Life: Hungry? It's the Famine Skull!


Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

We heard the screams and the cheers. While the community seemed to enjoy last week's inaugural episode of Points>Life we were begged to make sure the entire segment didn't become saturated with Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 achievement tips. With that in mind we bring you this tip from Halo 3!

The majority of hardcore achievement fiends have already mastered the 1000 in Halo 3, but for those of you looking to unlock some new armor we bring you the easiest way to grab the Famine skull on the mission, The Ark. Check out this week's Points>Life feature and rest assured, next week will not have anything to do with Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3. We promise!
