I heard it pronounced all sorts of ways. Rad-ehh-on sounds the most Canadian to me :P

Bowei is right with the official pronunciation though.

I looked it up online, and its also how they 'officially' pronounce it

 

I personally say it whichever way I want. 

 

I use Radon 60% of the time and Ray-di-on 40% of the time. I use radon when I say it really fast.

From Wikipedia. So yes, Ray-di-on.

Hmm, though it was something like Raid-Ahn.  AFAIK that's how the element is pronounced.

That crap that comes out of granite and causes lung cancer. Btw, my friend quizzes me and supposedly, I know 70% of the atomic symbols by memory.

We did a Periodic Table crossword about atomic symbols. I was the only one who wrote "Aluminium", everyone is like, "WTF does 'aluminum' not fit!?!?!?"

I can't say "aluminum" the way people outside the US can.  Haha we need to create a "words pronunciation thread"

almost done with BF4 Campaign on Hard

 

This may just be the worst AAA title FPS SP I have ever played.

 

There is absolutey nothing to say about it besides that it looks good sometimes.

Just wait until you try the multiplayer.  I don't even try to play it anymore, it's been like two and half weeks since I've played it and I don't miss it one bit.  Complete trash.

Campaign is UTTER trash

 

I've already logged a few hours in MP. Much...MUCH, better

 

Everything about the campaign was utter trash

 

  1. Utter propaganda with no 'real' themes.
  2. Extremely bad characters
  3. Story line, and character actions are uninspiring 
  4. The maps look huge and gorgeous but don't feel fun. Bad design
  5. Very bad forumla mix of FPS action, tank battle, and story time during the campaign
  6. Very bad usage of the ammo crate. Lack of customizing the weapons doomed this
  7. No 'real' stealth. You could kill one or two enemies by knife, but not a whole bunch. No silencers or anything, bad customization on weapons
  8. tight nit corners in BF3 turn to huge sprawling maps across multiple continents in BF4. If only the story, gameplay, and map design was good
  9. Incredible amount of bugs and crashing at times
  10. Very faulty Engage key usage. Very awkwar

 

The list goes on and on
