what happened to the days when having a "beta test" actually meant the developer NEEDED your help with various aspects of the game?

fucking stealth marketing.....

With every "trailer" this thing is looking less and less interesting. Every star system is simply small variations on a basic model.

One of the (very) few things I did KIND OF respect Smart for was his opinion on the gaming industry.

the article was of course TL;DR but given that Ive read some rational criticisms of RSI from other disillusioned backers Im wondering if ol Commander Knappy might have some salient points going......

2142 was the last decent Battlefield game IMO. It sold pretty well and I don't see DICE doing anymore current era combat without burning out the franchise.

I'll give it a "I believe the rumor" rating.

IMO, the talent of the art department does far more for the visual enjoyment of a game than the potential of the renderer to pull off a lot of fancy technical bells and whistles.

By all accounts I thought this was going to be a huge hit with the team-based shooter crowd. I've heard almost no one talking about it after launch

Anyone know what the numbers for this thing were? Was it considered a success or no?

I hate to be the critical guy seeing I loved the first two, but, DICE is developing this. Since the Bad Company series thats all theyve done, make variations on that. Their games have become rote, boring shiite.

Thanks to Take Two's paranoia about losing console sales due to PC version piracy (read: releasing it over a year later on PC) I no longer give a shit about this.

TT is the last company that does this lame shit (holding back the PC sku). Every other publisher stopped this practice 6-7 years ago.

Idiots.

Can you explain in more detail? I haven't played the game all that much and was thinking of getting back into it, so I'm curious what exactly you mean.

It's a great game but it takes a lot of dedication. You really need to put in over 100 hours before you get good enough to know the ins and outs and nuances. It's definitely a lot easier to play in a clan as they will bring you under their wing and get you directly into the action. Solo players (like myself) have to know the game very well to know where to be and when.

Which is a good explanation for an MMO, which is what it is. If the game were simplistic like CoD, BF series etc. it would have a shelf life of less than 6 months. That depth is what keeps the game fresh. Go play some Sunday when there are usually good chains of command in place, the battles are epic. I can still remember battles from the original game that are still vivid in my memory.
