After waiting an hour in line for some Battlefield 3 action at E3, we finally got to play it. And it looks promising.
Wish I was at E3. Oh well, I will be playing the MP beta coming in September, for sure. Wonder if there will also be a SP demo? Though I'm primarily a MP BF gamer, the SP campaign has me intrigued and wouldn't mind trying a little taste of it as well..
"You can op-out of being revived." YES. Nothing worse than being revived time after time by an idiot medic when a tank keeps blowing you up each time.
They should have made it that you can only be revived if you actually called out after being fragged for the medic by click shoot or whatever. I don't no how many times I was angry at you said scenario.
Mmmmmmm. Some VERY good things in here for me. Standouts are being able to opt out of being revived, and choosing a fire mode. My weapon of choice in BC2 is the M14 with 4x zoom. Hopefully gonna have more choices now for semi-auto. WOOOO!
this game is garbage
*Looks at previous comment history.* TOTALLY not a troll.
Reported for TROLLING.... Anyway, OT...I'm VERY relieved to see that you actually have to pull out the knife! No one button lock on crap out of nowhere.
I rarely ever mess with peoples bubbles, but congratulations waterboy you have managed to LOSE bubbles from me because of your totally worthless 4 word trolling sentence. Anyway I have reached the point that I don't want more then one shooter per year, and Battlefield 3 will be that shooter this year. Its no contest. EA has went all out on Battlefield 3 this year. Not only that they are selling the game unlike Activision which feels they no longer have to even try.
It's garbage to Waterboy because BF3 happens to look better than any PS3 game out. This makes him angry
lol yea I saw him in another article saying how ps3 versions will look better than pc versions. I had a lol attack.
Somebody call the plumber. ;)
I'm ready DICE. Bring it!
It's interesting how polished all the BF3 footage looks and yet they still say it's in "alpha" stages.
Nice response on the demo. Looking forward to see what it runs like on consoles, as i wont be playing on a computer.
4 players per squad sucked before and still does.
i feel the same way. i mean cmon...64 players and we can only have 4 in a squad?! le sigh. oh and no commo rose :( I hope voice chat isn't restricted to only the squad. otherwise communication is gonna be a bitch.
Totally agree. I'm getting worried this is going to be BC2 with prone and planes. I really didn't like BC2 that much and HATED the way it controlled (played on PC). It felt like the reticle moved through syrup. I'm gonna guess that they got rid of the Commander that sent in air strikes, supplies, uav's, etc also? If it's gonna be dumbed down for people, there can't be a commander anymore.
Don't get me wrong, I am excited about BF3 but I feel the 4 player limit on squads ruined BF2. I have more than 4 friends that would be on my team and the only way to talk would be to not join a squad.
I'm gettin more and more concerned. This looks and sounds more and more like beefed up BFBC2 and nothing like a beefed up BF2. No commo rose, 4 classes and 4 players per squad, no commander mode, probably no UAV and supply drops etc, no side specific weapons(russians and americans all totting the same M16s and Ak-47 WTF?!?!?!)
your right. it's starting to look more like they added bf2 elements to bfbc2, instead of the other way around.
it may sound stupid, but TRUST DICE, they have not once failed us completely, despite hiccucps. All i have to say is do not be dissapointed, this WILL be revolutionary, so do not lose hope.
Only thing that'll put everyone's wories to rest, with exception of some console players: mod tools. and none of that engine's too complex bull [email protected] if someone cares enough they'll figure it out and put in the effort. too bad it proly wont happen because of a certain business practice ARGH!!!!
