Our team here at Rated Gamer has searched the net and we have compiled a list of things we want in Battlefield 3. Vehicle chat enabled 128 slot servers ... .. .
■Vehicle chat enabled ■Re-introduction of more than two sides. ■128 slot servers ■Re-introduction of the original six classes rather than the amalgamated 4 ■Game play that rewards teamwork ■Day and night cycles and dynamic weather effect ■3D support ■Character creation ■No Console Ports ■Basic implementation of destructible environments – some buildings, not all. ■Random re-spawn points for ground based AA/Tows ■Inclusion of Mobile AA ■Giving Sniper class the Special Forces ability to not appear on sat scan when immobile (promoting use of the class as recon…rather than insta-headshot assault variant). ■Dynamic destruction ■1 Hand Grenade and 2 40mm GLs as standard. ■Removing the BC2 UAV option ■Keeping the old Commander Position
I don't care if there's a console version just as long as it's developed separately from the PC version as a different game like BF2:MC so they won't have to make compromises like smaller maps, smaller player count, etc.
Batllefield 2 on pc is still such awesome game till date ...
I was a big fan of BF2 on PC, but iv now only just moved on to ArmaII today. Honestly, i wouldnt like a console version of Battlefield 3 unless as you have said, it is a completely seperate game like how they did Battlefield 2.
Significantly different PC versions won't happen ever again. There's no financial justification to do so, especially with rampant piracy on PCs. Like it or not, money is all that matters. It's not good, it's just reality. Besides, the margin between consoles and PCs is no where near what it was a few years ago. As for improvements: -bring back prone -add a ton more recoil to LMGs and make it so that their sights can only be used while prone (they should be near-useless at range while standing). BF2 did LMGs much better, if I recall correctly...aside from the "dolphin" junk people pulled. -bring fixed wing aircraft back -for f***'s sake, improve the wonky hit detection which has been screwed up in every BF game on every platform since...well, forever. I think it's just due to how it manages latency, but hell if it's not infuriating at times.
God if this touches consoles it will be ruined and tainted for the dumbass console players.
there's plenty of incentive to do BF3 pc only. It won't sell well on pc if it's a gimped console port. That's the reality. BF2 sold 1.5 million in its first month. They will go with what they know they can get. pc gaming has grown since then. those are numbers that most console devs wish they can get. battlefield IS 64+ player servers. Something that won't be possible on consoles. Not with destruction, and their netcode isn't exactly the greatest.
... and maybe even add an option to be able to play as a female soldier. There are lots of women who play these games online, so in this day and age, why not at least give players the option to create your own character and thus also sex!? I don't care much for 128 players online. That might just be too many players and make it all a mess, although obviously that depends on the scale of the maps. I'm sure they will make sure it will work if they do decide to implement it. I just fear it will lead to making you feel less 'special' about your role in the battle, cause most of the time you will just make a very small impact on the outcome of it all. Dynamic weather and day and night cycles would be GREAT, especially with Dice's talent. They always make those levels look, feel and play pretty special and beautiful. I'd like them to just go back to the pick-up and play quality that Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 1943 have.
Well i thinks someones asking for a little to much.
Develop the definitive and "full" version for the PC. If there will be console versions of this game, let it be ports.
Less sneaky map packs.
Sigh how time changes. I was the hardcore 1942/DC, Vietnam, BF2, 2142 player addict and now i can't even thing of going back to PC, despite 23"LCD, 5870 1GB card in the system. I dont feel comfortable with kb/m gameplay anymore after getting into HD console gaming from Jan 06. I barely tried teh BC2 version on pc and removed it and still playing 3~4 hours almost every evening after coming back from work. I hope they make it for consoles and i would gladly buy it for 360.
this isn't the blog section.
It's also not the snarky comments section. Besides, the article specifically mentioned PCs vs. console ports. His post was on topic.
Hahaha + bubbs frosty
i hope it is.bad company does enough for the consoles
I think it's pretty good the way it is. I would like to see more maps per mode at release and definitely some weather effects. Snow maps are cool but they would be even better if it was actually snowing.
Can't wait. BF2 is still the best!
I am a nube at Battlefield 2 so mainly play offline against the bots. I would like to see bots that act more realistic and don't do things like running backwards
That stuff gives me shivers. Bots running away from you, yet their head is facing you :P ahh!
Yes, we don't won't a console port. We won't the consoles to be the lead development platforms.
having more open maps because i have some teams spwan camping us on mostly any mode
If it won't be on consoles, it's unlikely BF3 will ever be released. Everyone knows that consoles run the gaming industry. And of course developers want to earn some money.
PS3 or PC i would buy it. Loved all the bf games. But agree with top comment expect, console version not being made and i call bs on size of maps. BF2 is not that great looking game, low textures everywhere. You could run a better looking game then bf2, with better textures and lighting and still with big maps on PS3 OR 360.
multiformat is the new thing now . pc gamers are getting punished more and more now for this such as microsfts live service. will this game hit 360/ps3 too i beleave it will. even thoe i have a ps3 im curruntly building a top end gaming machine I7. just spent £220 on 6gb corsair dominator ram the red versions. so get back into games make the machine future proof for well 5 years. but more devs are about the money and making for consoles weather be ports or not is suitable for them aspc owners know piracy isthe biggest killer for devs on pc's.also 360
The true battlefield lives in the PC not in the consoles... I dont want any 12 year olds ruining PC gaming
man that's cruel :(
It could be the same as BF2 but with better textures and high res support and I'd play it all over again!
Man, the list is fine, but what i really like, is BF3 being and feel the same as bf2, just with more weapons, more maps, better graphics, and thats it. DICE put so much in Bad company games that they just dont feel like playing battlefield 2, it is just different.
This would be perfect if thats all it is.
Bad Company for consoles. 1942/BF2/2142/BF3 for PC. Everyone would be happy.
PC only!!! lets advance please my 5870 is laugh at these multiplats I need them to push my card make me upgrade!! but that may not happen.. sighing :(
i fell that they fell old and simple after playing KILLZONE 2,3 in3d, UNCHARTED 2, GOW3, GT5. pc gamers and ps3 gamers have something in common ? ;)
