Battlefield 3 End Game

Battlefield 3 End Game has been out now for 3 days. It's a worthy finale for what has been a brilliant Game.  BF3 Premium DLCi has brought out Close Quarters, Armoured Kill and Aftermath and finally End Game.  I've played all of them as they were released. End Game has 4 new maps and brings new gameplay challenges with Air Superiority and Capture the Flag.  Air Superiority is jets on jets battle to win flags. It was the first part of End Game I played. Air Superiority is dog fight heaven. Capture the Flag is a frantic match to steal your enemies flags and protect your own flag.  Dice have added dirt bikes and some new armour. The Dirt Bikes are fast and nimble. The new dropship let's you launch in to help your teammates in a vehicle. 

Dice gives you the best experience with first person firepower. With the new maps and vehicles it is fast and furios. I've enjoyed the other DLC with Premium Membership. But I have to say that End Game is the icing on the cake, and well worth the price of admission.

I've had a thought (remembered) about a great way to use Pinterest

Finally, after having a Pinterest for ages, I've thought of (remembered) a good way of using it.  Back a long time ago in a galaxy far far away I worked for Disney games. Occasionally I could visit their scrap library. In the scrap library were loads of images taken out of magazines including images of how an old western town should look, What main street USA might look  and more, so much more.  All curated, in alphabetical order filling 20 or more filing cabinets.  It was amazing. I had access to the same material Imagineers and the original designers of Disneyland had.

Now I teach 3D, and I need some cool images, of which I usually search for on the day. But why not use Pinterest, as my scrap library with amazing images useful for inspiring cool 3D images.  From architectural, science fiction, NASA,, lighting examples, designs  exteriors, the elements and more, I will create my scrap library, and it will be good.

If you have suggestions let me know, I am grateful for any help.  Find me on Google Pluse
