Default BattleField 3

For those who are interested in the game. Now is the time for a hell of a deal. Get Beta and a Free game. Offer expires Sunday. I personally cant wait for this game and probably will pre order it.

Default RE: BattleField 3

I had sooooo much fun with BF2, played it unpached on a no cheat, non ranked server with max 64 ppl. I would play as spec. ops and go to the enemy chopper spawn, since the pilots of the chopper would spawn before the chopper itself, I would place a satchel on the pad, hide and wait. They would come expecting to wait for the chopper to spawn but would get blown to bits and I would take off with their chopper. Then it was just a question of getting to my air field for repair and to pick up a gunner.

2142 was good but just not the same. The maps were to small and allot of glitches made it easy to rank up fast earlier on in the games life.

Bad company was also a good one, #2 was not as great.

If this compares to 2 then I think I might get a new tower sooner than I thought, I was waiting for Half-Life 2 Episode 3.

This game is being developed on the PC. So it will be way better than the console version. I cannot wait for 64 player chaos again!

I got in the alpha and it was fun, i really liked it but i hated bc2 so it was kinda strange.

Things i didn't like were the web browser server system, i want my in game server list.

Few gripes here and there about things and bugs that really need fixing but it was a closed alpha so not much to expect from it...

Downside to the alpha was a few big names where already cracking fb2 open, and then your typical cheat engine kiddie but aside from the cheater here and there it was alright, will defiantly buy as soon as i get some money...

Also here's a ss from me in the alpha my best game at the time....
EDIT: I'm slayer, the scoreboard is a bit weird on soloing you out...

There will be very little difference between the PC and console versions.

The multiplayer will play differently. I think 64 vs 24 players is a huge difference.

I would like to mention now that its confirmed about how servers work in bf3. Source for confirmation: [link=http://bf3blog.com/2011/08/battlefield-3-pc-version-wont-have-in-game-server-browser/]Click me[/link]

1. Start origin
2. Launch bf3
3. Web browser opens
4. Asks for plugin
5. Install plugin
6. Restart browser
7. Launches website called "Battle Log"
8. Pick Server and play.

Now here are the two ways to play bf3 from this point.

Option A
1. Start origin
2. Launch bf3
3. Web browser opens
4. Launches website called "Battle Log"
5. Pick Server and play.

Option B
1. Leave web browser open
2. Find server and bf3 launches and joins server.

Seems weird looking at unfinished animations. I, for one, am glad they didn't mirror the weapons.

If I would have known about this when I preordered it at game stop I wouldn't have but oh well I don't play games on the PC only PS3 so oh well either way.  I'll wait till Oct to play.

Also it has mortars!  as a mortarman in the Marine Corps I find it to be an under utilized weapon in games, but it is "less" glorious.  but those people never have seen it in action in a fire fight in hand held or conventional.

That gives me hope my G53JW will run it decently. It's all I got to run the beta on. What settings do you have it on?

Does the 460M out perform the 5850M?

460m trades blows with the 5870m or lags just behind it.
