This game has been on my radar for quite some time now and the more I hear about it, the more I'm inclined towards buying it on launch day. I just hope I don't burn a hole in my pocket for no reason :) Ah I'm sure Dice won't disappoint the fans.

I just watched those videos last night. It is looking really impressive. I am all about realism so i love it when developers put that stuff into games. Thats why i love GT series over say Need for Speed. I am really looking forward to this game. I have high expectations for this game. I loved BF2 but my PC wasnt good enough to play it with all the setting turned up. :(

sevanig5979d ago

Bah still looks kinda crappy with all the v-sync issues and crappy textures... motion blur and dof effects look cool though :)
Dunno why they are not making it for PC?
At least we can tell its the 360 version with all he achievements popping up...

sak5005979d ago

Pc is getting BF3. Since this one is being specially developed for the consoles so hopefully it will utilize their potential more effectively and give us a damn good game. I finally gave up playing 2142 after i started halo3 and COD4.


The Argument for Battlefield: Bad Company Remakes

With the franchise’s mainline entries failing to find their footing in recent years, now is the perfect time for a Battlefield: Bad Company remake.

Of course there is no counter argument. This is what fans of the franchise have wanted for years. This and/or BF Bad Company 2.

When asked why there hasn't been another Bad Company:

“There's one thing that lingers with Bad Company that we've been asking ourselves: What is it that the people really liked about Bad Company?" DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson told Eurogamer.

Troedsson says that he and his team can’t put their fingers on what it is that people loved about that branch of the brand. “It's hard for people to articulate what that is, which is actually hard for us,” he says. “It would be hard to remake something like that. Can we do it? Of course. We have our theories when it comes to the multiplayer."

I always activate the Black Weapon on BFV Solomon Islands for all the BC2 fans who hear/recognize it, thus starting the events of BC2 on BF5 :)

Derrrunnn. Derrrunnn.

What is so hard to understand for them?

Bad Company 2 is one of the best and most memorable games in the series because:
- It was class-based (duh)
- Heavy focus on squads
- Substance over map size or gimmicks
- Fantastic and realistic gun play
- Well designed maps
- Destructible environments (why has this been minimised so hard in the series? You could demolish buildings in bad company 2 with some well placed C4
- Great progression system and variety in play
- No stupid CoD imitations or focus on the store over the game
- It was *drumroll* incredibly good fun?
- It was unmistakably BATTLEFIELD


Probably should add a fun campaign to the list.

This reminds me... I have ME on my PS3 hdd. Never really played it, but it was free.

XiNatsuDragnel427d ago

Digital future ppl is good they say nope imo

Eidolon427d ago

And it still says nothing about being able to downloaded even when it's off the storefront, that's a huge ouchie for some who somehow still have it in their backlog...

Shane Kim426d ago

Dont make it an issue when it's not. If you haven't played it in 15 years, chances are you'll never play it.

isarai427d ago

That all digital future sure looks great!


zidane1341427d ago (Edited 427d ago )

Online game servers shut off eventually all the time. Doesn’t matter if you have the disc or not. Even if you have the disc, it’ll be just paperweight unless the game lets you connect directly to a friend or LAN play.

isarai427d ago (Edited 427d ago )

Read the article bro. They are delisting the games, including mirrors edge which is an offline game. Online servers i can understand, not being able to buy/download the games anymore? Completely separate issue, especially seeing as how some these games had lengthy sp campaigns and not just mp.

zidane1341427d ago

@israrai, you can still buy the disc for less then 10$. Hardly a loss.

TheEnigma313427d ago

You shouldn't have to buy the disc, that's the issue.

OhReginald426d ago (Edited 426d ago )

Some brilliant minds created servers to keep these old online games alive. A lot of ps2 and ps3 games that had there servers shut down a long time ago have been restored by fans to keep it going. Warhawk, killzone 2, socom 2/ confrontation, resident evil outbreak series, etc.

The disc still exist. I don’t understand the issue. You guys are upset about that “all digital future” yet these games are not “digital only”. Hell digital only is a minority in the gaming world and so far we haven’t moved into it, the only digital only games are games as a service or online only games, which end up failing in the end.

This is no different than a store that stops selling old games, just go and buy a copy somewhere else. So which is it, you hate all digital or you like it? Make up your mind.

isarai426d ago

Talk about missing the point entirely. I'm not going to sit here and explain it to you, figure it out.

DankSinatra426d ago

Talk about whining about something and not wanting to explain from an off handed sarcastic original comment.

I got the point just fine. You’re literally complaining about something that has an easy alternative to it.

ManMarmalade426d ago

I don't think you got the point

DankSinatra426d ago (Edited 426d ago )


No I got it, it has to do with the push towards a future of all digital and reprocussions of losing games. Something I already stayed that hasn’t happened nor is it large enough right now to cause any issues as the games that are all digital are online only to begin with or make up the minority of games

So I’ll say it again, the disc still exists for these games that are over a decade old and can still be played easily. You guys are contradicting the whole “we don’t want a digital only future” crying when the dude I originally responded to stated:

“Read the article bro. They are delisting the games, including mirrors edge which is an offline game. Online servers i can understand, not being able to buy/download the games anymore? Completely separate issue, especially seeing as how some these games had lengthy sp campaigns and not just mp.“

So again, which is it? Do you hate all digital or do you want it?

Inverno427d ago

On PC I don't think it's much of a problem but I'm sad to see BF43 being shut down. I haven't played it in a while since it's stuck on PS3, but i preferred it way more over BF3. It was the lack of invisible barriers which made it better for me.

badz149427d ago

BFBC2 was still the best overall package offered by the franchise so far IMO

porkChop427d ago

Absolutely. BC2 was such a great game. It's a shame we never got BC3.
