Hip-hop vs Heavy Metal: Battlefield 3 Showdown

Are you one of those people that can’t stand Hip-Hop? What about Heavy Metal? Well, now EA is giving you the chance to show which is the best. EA has put together squads made up of iconic  Hip-Hop and Metal artists like Big Boi, Mickey Factz, Dave Mustiane of Megadeth,  and Jonathan Davis of Korn. To get in on the action check out the schedule for this weekend :

Representing Team Metal: Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine
Representing Team Hip Hop: Big Boi

Time: 10AM-12PM, January 7 2012
Weapon of choice: Battlefield 3, Xbox 360®
Map and mode: Strike at Karkand, Conquest Assault

Representing Team Metal: Korn’s Jonathan Davis
Representing Team Hip Hop: Mickey Factz

Time: 10AM-12PM, January 8 2012
Weapon of choice: Battlefield 3, PlayStation® 3
Map and mode: Strike at Karkand, Conquest Assault

If you don’t get into the match ups don’t worry, for the month of January players can make create their own platoons  “[MvsH] Metal” or “[MvsH] Hip Hop.” By using battlelog, players will be able to form a fraction based on their musical tastes. At the end of the month members and kills will be counted up, and a winning platoon will be crowned. Man, if only they had a Jazz category, oh well.

    I’m surprised that they went with Korn for round two. Korn, while a decent band, it hardly a fair representative of heavy metal.
