For the KQ collection... Do you need to use any emulators like DOSbox, or do they just run directly from Steam?

News Comments > Three Battlefield 3 Expansions Announced
54. Re: Three Battlefield 3 Expansions Announced Mar 8, 2012, 12:42 Morgan19
 
Just curious... Why does simply being indoors equal idiot-friendly?

I play both BF3 and (currently) MW3, and I'm smart enough to know and appreciate the differences: in a lot of ways it boils down to (my impression) BF being more tactical and thoughtful, whereas CoD is running around like a headless chicken blowing crap up. Both are equally fun to me, depending on what gaming-mood I'm in. And personally, I'd love the chance to keep playing BF3 in different environments. It mixes things up.

So can you not have tactical/thoughtful gameplay in an interior environment? I just don't understand jumping to the conclusion that including a few types of those maps apparently ruins the series. I approach it as more variety being a good thing: it's not as if they're removing all the wide-open/vehicular maps by adding some interior maps.

I really like what this poster had to say over on bf3blog.com; seems to echo my own sentiments nicely:

People need to keep in mind that the DLC after this one is going to be heavily focused on vehicle warfare.

Some people like wide open maps, and some people, such as myself, enjoy the clusterfuck of people in tight infantry based maps. Is it because it has a Call of Duty element to it? Hell no. Itís because I enjoy the 24/7 carnage. I enjoy bullets flying around around me everywhere, and the constant sound of gunfire. Heck, I probably wasted a total of 5 days in hours from playing Strike at Karkand in Battlefield 2.

But donít get me wrong; I also LOVE wide open maps. In BF2, Highway Tampa was some of the funnest game play Iíve ever had in any Battlefield game. I couldnít begin to explain how many hours Iíve spent on that map having a blast with the heavy vehicle warfare.

My point is that everyone has their own preferences. Some people like the tight close quarters infantry combat, some people like wide open maps which focus more on vehicle warfare.

DICE seems like they are giving something for everyone; Close-Quarters for the people who enjoy tight quarters combat, and Armored Kill for the people who like wide open maps and vehicle warfare.

In conclusion, please donít hate on someone else because of their preferences. We all have our likes and dislikes, but in the end everyone is getting a little something that they like; either it be Close Quarters, or Armored kill.

Never finished Guild Wars--quite bluntly--I hate, HATE--that I can't finish quest as an SP---they need to fix the game so that quest difficulty is determined by SP or if you are play as part of an MP team. I couldn't proceed further because of the mandatory MP play.

That was "fixed" a long time ago, mainly with the addition of controllable heroes and, more recently, the ability to play with a full party of your own heroesĖ no NPC henchmen or live players needed.

I picked up GW again last year after not playing for a while and have since finished the main campaign, Factions, Nightfall, and Eye of the North all without ever joining a single MP group. Parts (like the EotN dungeons) can be frustrating playing by yourself, but grouping with other players is by no means mandatory.

Not necessarily. I received a "thank you for applying" email shortly after submitting. I imagine they're just overloaded if everyone's trying to suddenly sign up at once.

(edit) Weird. A second attempt failed completely, and the third finally went through and showed me the English page.

How does one weird animation equal consolitis...? That seems a bit of a stretch, and not even what he was asking about.

^Drag0n^ wrote on Feb 17, 2012, 19:08:
So, again, I'm asking, how bad is the Consolitis?

Did you play ME2, by any chance? From the demo so far, ME3 feels and acts very similarly so that's an easy point of reference in terms of what to expect.

There're plenty of the usual PC options like graphics (which are fine, but admittedly less extensive than other games), audio, remappable controls, mouse settings, etc. so that doesn't seem console-y at all. You can utilize powers with the number keys or by pausing and doing it through a squad menu. Mouse input is very smooth, quick, and responsive. Regarding the UI, it seems very natural to get into the game and play with a mouse and keyboard; while playing the demo I never thought to myself "Gee, this'd be easier with a controller," or have any glaring instance of things feeling badly ported.

In all honesty the only thing I can think of off the top of my head that would come across as console-y is the uber-combined "one button to interact/cover/jump" function. I do sort of miss separate keys to crouch, pick up, interact, etc. but that's not a game-breaker by any stretch. Lots of games have weird control quirks that take some getting used to and I just chalk it up to that.

Anyone know how to configure Origin so that the demo does not install to C:\? I've installed Origin on E:\, but it still wants to install the demo on C:\. Thanks in advance?

Under Settings > Downloaded Games, do you have a folder on E:\ specified? I just opened up my Origin (which is on D:\Games\Origin) and the demo went right to downloading and installing in the Origin games folder there.

I enjoyed the quick bit I got to try of the demo so far... I immediately felt right at home playing again, from the grand "holy crap save the world please" cinematics to the "it just feels like ME" gameplay. Definitely Looking forward to the full game.

That's not GW2; looks like it's all stuff from the Winds of Change in GW1, maybe?

(EDIT) Yeah just checked out the GuildWars 2 site. It looks like the story originates there, but it's for GW1's Winds of Change content.

So what happens to all the players that have unlocked classes and unlocked perks and abilities to classes that are going away or to classes that are being changed? I hope we don't get shafted.

Posts on the beta boards seem to indicate that, if you've unlocked stuff that's being removed, you'll get the equivalent amount of XP back to re-spend on whatever.

Yeah, SP was a joke but MP was actually a lot of fun. Thought it combined twitchier gameplay with more tactical elements nicely.

So you don't want VOIP as part of the installation, but requiring the game and Origin and Battlelog and the kitchen sink is just peachy?

The problem with your gpu will be fixed in a NVIDIA driver update this month
Has nvidia acknowledged the issue and said they're working on a fix, or is it just speculation? Would be awesome if it's true...

When they talk about fixes like this... How do you actually get get the fix? I right-click the game in Origin and the game says it's already up-to-date; the Battlelog browser plugin says the same. Just wondering if these wonderful fixes of their's will solve all the 560 Ti problems.

Still no dice (ha) on getting the damn thing to run again. I've repaired the game through Origin, reinstalled the game, reinstalled Origin, reinstalled GeForce drivers, set the Origin and BF3 exe's to run as Admin or in Windows 7 compatibility mode, already run Win7 in classic non-Aero mode, tried Origin in offline mode, underclocked my videocard, reinstalled MS Framework 4, enabled Limit CPUID and so on.

Nothing has worked. Blah.
