It's annoying.

Bethesda should make sure its forums are secure as they can make them - but the blame lies with the hackers.

Doesn't matter, if they were made responsible by law, their security would improve overnight.

These sites really need to improve their security. I beleive this is the 3rd or 4th reset from various games sites that I have joined after purchasing their games. There really should be some sort of liability for the failure to secure their sites. Wall

I dunno man. I never cared for multiplayer in the quasirealistic shooters, and may have stopped caring about competitive team-based multiplayer entirely.

The main appealing part of BF3 and MW3 for me, by far, is the cinematic scripting in the single-player campaign, but frankly, there's nothing even remotely new to be seen there conceptually. Once you start cinematic scripting, you can't give player more freedom, because he'll break your shit immediately.

It's an ever narrowing tunnel, and, after all the COD games and MoH and Homefront, it wouldn't take much to dissuade me from buying BF3. Shitty DRM just might easily relegate it down to the priority list, well into the bowels of "wait until it's 14.99 or less" category.

Meanwhile I'd still have Deus Ex:HR, Bioshock: Infinite and Rage.
Two Thumbs Up! !

The fanboys were pretty strong with this one

Because the GAME, is excellent, so I hear. So once you get past all the bullshit business practices outside the game...which for a lot of people, that's all they care about.

Wrong--far from excellent. But each to their own.

To each their own and wrong in the same breath?

You're right it is far from excellent. It's phenomenal. Best multiplayer shooter ever created to date, and you can tell that from one map.

To each their own suggests the people have their own types of game play that they enjoy. Played the alpha and other than the graphics, it's just another generic run gun shoot and die that looks pretty. The original poster didn't even play it and I bet most of the posters haven't also.

Wasn't impressed with the ALPHA test at all. No matter what platform the game is released on it's basically run,gun,shoot and die mayhem with no redeeming game play at all other than the pretty graphics.
I'll check it out again during the beta, but from what I've seen so far, it's the first nail in the BF franchise, origin being the next.

Which one, the Dragon or the witcher? Both opponents were weak as hell if you ask me. You get so over-powered, plus if you did the optional quest for the dragon armor you're basically a walking god.

I really think they dropped the ball on the last chapter and the final 2 bosses. Very weak.

The other 80% of the game was great though.

Agree, the game was great until the the last Act. No matter what path you follow.

I played in the BF3 pre-alpha last week....Origin sucks monkey balls and my only suggestion to the EA team while giving my feedback was to ditch Origin and go with Steam.

As of now I wont be buying the game.

I played that alpha also. I really doesn't matter where the game is sold or what service it uses---the game itself 'sucks monkey balls'.
It's no more than a pretty but mediocre run,gun and die mayhem game.
EA has put the knife into the heart of the BF franchise.
I'll have access to the beta too, and will give it a go, but the game is off my buy list at this time, regardless of where/how the game is played or bought from.

Kotaku's skyrim is 360, nothing else. Waste of time following the link for me.
Poster really needs to include the platform that is being used for the review (in fact should be included all reviews) being linked to in the headline.

Played the alpha---it's little more than a generic run gun and shoot--looks like the BF franchise is going in to the crapper. How sad.

Hmm never saw that on Blues News.
Guess it's not gaming news and besides it wasn't a matter of "IF" it was only a matter of "WHEN".
We'll always have those you tube videos of her being boo'd off the stage to remember her by.

I used the "everything is weightless" mod. Would be a shame if that didn't work anymore. I don't usually mod out difficulty and in Fallout: New Vegas I actually play on hardcore where inventory management is much harder, but for TW2 I just hated the inventory system. The game really encourages you to grab everything you find but then has a very low weight count and no storage.

Not all mods are broke. Those that add textures (like the compass one) or change appearance of the game may not. I did a fresh install (no mods) are just put back th zero weight mod- http://modsreloaded.com/witcher-2 and it works.

I quoted you mainly to wish you luck with your buying practices considering what the future holds. I guess I could've made them different paragraphs to make it more clear though. No frothing hatred, my distaste for Steam is sadly entirely rational.

I am a gamer and probably always will be; if for some reason Steam becomes a second-tier service that doesn't host the greatest games or even goes away entirely, then naturally I'll evolve. Right now, I'm perfectly content with Steam, and am also perfectly content in the understanding that not everyone is. All I ask is a choice, and EA seems to be removing that in this case.

Um you can still buy it from other places just not your precious Steam. Just saying.

I bought hard retail copies of games and was FORCED to use steam to get them installed/verified and updated. The choice I want,
when I buy a retail copy-- is not to be forced into using steam when I didn't purchase the game(s) throught their d/l service.

About time they fixed the update/patch function. Downloadiing 9 gigs for a 1gig patch was just ridiculous. They kind of had to to save their bussiness model since many IPS are begining to restrict d/ls and charge an arm and a leg when you exeed your plan.(unless you pay lots to get unlimited).

Free...for a day. Big f'n whoop.


Other than the site being super slow or unreachable, it's a sweet give-a-way. And and nice birthday present for me.
