RE: BF3

It does look brilliant and I too am thinking it will be a must buy... however remember too that EA are looking on at Steam and wanting in on a piece of that action.... hence why they are going to be running their own servers for this game... still, I can't see such a large company giving us gamers bad connections... time will tell.           Beer

RE: BF3

I didn't ever buy COD for that reason - own servers and lots of aimbots! At least Valve have the anti-cheat mechanism which largely deters cheating.  Smile Let's wait and see but looks amazing from the 'in game' trailers......

RE: BF3

BF3 looks good and beta servers are up across most platforms , though looking through the forums pages alot of people have said its lost its BF 1&2 feel and the squad base play has gone. I still have my BF3 on order so fingers crossed they get it sorted in time

Yes, I might actually wait a bit for a. bugs to be sorted b. price to drop. I've got too much tank driving on WoT to do! Smile

Graphics on the trailer are insane. I think its time to upgrade my videocard, to have a batter gaming experience.

I went from an 8800GT to a GTX 570 this year with my new system. Fantastic performance. Beer

RE: BF3

I've been playing the beta now for a couple of days and finally got around to having a go at flying the heli's and jets which feature on the second beta map 'Caspian Border'..... they seemed real good.... though I sucked at using them     rolling on the floor laughing .....I need practise    Tongue

The servers themselves seem fine     good job    ...most annoying thing for me is the mini-map which I find rubbish for finding my way about ...     so I hope that they have this looking a lot better come the final product.

RE: BF3

Arrived from Amazon yesterday, installed and had a quick peek at the single player - looks amazing! The reviews on Amazon are bringing the total score down due to the Ts and Cs - not the game! Apparently Origin - and you need to d/l origin even if you have the disks, is spyware....... Angry

Lol, Graham   Smile

 

Both of my sons now have it for the pc... both love it.

 

I need to up-grade from my 8800 Ultra          :(

 

Going by their sounds in-game over their headsets... Wow !

I'm running it on my iMac on medium settings.  Knowing what the game is capable of i'm really getting tempted to buy a gaming pc.

 

Aside from the installation/activation gripes the game (multiplayer) is awesome. So is the sound.  I think MW3 will be up against it in terms of online play.

RE: BF3

This might be controvrsial but it's too realistic, too gory and not suitable for kids at all. 

What does anyone else think?

true BF3 is a 16 rated game any parent buying it for their kids is a unfit parent these idiots are more than likely to be the same parents who let the juvenile delinquent asbo kids drink,smoke and cause trouble just so they can have a easy life

RE: BF3 RE: BF3

No stereotyping there then?  Smile It should be 18 rated but that would harm sales to some degree.......
