Glad to see them fix this.. it was a bad game design from the word go.

They're making a new "RPG"... without character creation... without dialog choices... without experience points... without skills... without leveling... without magic... without melee... without quests... without story... must be purchased on Origin... AND most importantly... can't use a keyboard and mouse (must use gamepad to mash the "A-Button-Does-Something-Awesome" )

... And it's going to be called... "Mass Age of Defective Dragons 13: Not Another console Sequel... Really!"

Oh... and you get 1 hour of Game for $60... and have to buy 35 different DLC's at $29 a pop, that are about 20 minutes of add-on, before you get a full game.

I think you're being cautiously optimistic.. if not also slightly sarcastic and damn handsome.

It still boggles me that AMD took a look at the current Intel line, and the very soon Ivy line.. and said "screw em, we'll sell a slower CPU for more money!"

That was their game plan?

I do really like it too, and I was ready to not like it. I admit, I was looking for issues to hate on the game.
Well, here I stand corrected, the game is a blast.

I do have one issue though.
the god damn lights/sun!! The flashlights in your face during the middle of the day, the laser sight that is always in my eye, the sun and the godawful amount of lensflares/blinding light, and just the other lighting in general.. they really jacked it up to a 10, and across the board, they need to globally knock it down to a 4.

Or.. does anyone know how to legally fix this, outside of adjusting the overall brightness?

The one drawback that Planetside 1 had to me (and it was hardware/technology unrelated) was that it lacked character depth. I needed a bit more to do for my character.

the last MoH felt terrible compared to the MW/BF series we all had options for. The game was too twitchy/fast for a shooter like it was/features it had.

Where's another BF 2142 or something along those lines? Someone start copying that timeline for FPS's. That's something slightly refreshing at least

I'd just like it if the nex gen of console games all have native kb/mouse controls and have those components available from day one. Keep resolutions high, allow me to adjust the FOV on my PC.. and make console games (let's be honest, FPS's) identical on both platforms because the gaming experience/mechanics/hardware is all equivalent.

No more oversized and stupid UI's...no more mapping problems...and let the only difference be that the top end PC's (at the time the nex consoles release) can just play the games in a slightly better graphics mode. If devs are working from near-identical hardware then it should be easy, right? Hell, make the 720 run Windows 8/9 (small adjustment for the console DVD's)..so that the developing platform is identical. Boom.. just punched Sony in the mouth!

Can one of you smart guys tell me if it's this game i'm thinking of where it was mostly squad based, continual movement -capture, progress- game..or were there bases?

I suck at RTS's.. flat out suck.. so I like to turtle up and take my time..which DoW game is right for me?

totally unrelated- is there ever going to be another Earth 2160 game? that game was money!

The truth accidentally leaked out, and now they have to do damage control or never get another EA game, to review again.

Unfortunately, that's my initial gut reaction. Not that I matter, and not that it really matters to me because I don't pay attention to review sites anyhow, i pay attention to what you guys say when it comes to reviews.

This is a good a place to ask as any..so..

Does anyone have a list or a link to a side by side comparison on what BF3 and MF3 bring to the table? I mean in terms of stuff like, total players, private servers, # of maps, private servers or not, etc..

With all the hype in the last few months I got a bit overwhelmed and can't recall it all. I remember starting out all "yay BF3!" then the excitement broke away little by little and MF3 was like "now we have X feature you really want!"

Any help appreciated!

Anyone else read someones overly positive post, not recognize their name and then see that they have less than 20 posts and immediately discredit them?
I see about 5 in this thread.. and I can't help but believe they are plants.

Also...
Any smart FPS veteran (such as you'll find here) will tell you that we've all been burned more than once after buying a game on release day and finding the same bugs that existed in beta that we were promised were fixed before the game went gold.

So having reservations about the launch product is not without merit.

"And thanks again for playing and helping make Battlefield 3 a better game at launch!"

I read that and all I can think of is that from the beta to the release product, nothing suggested or identified in the beta will be addressed in the gold copy.. but will come in a patch some time after launch.

I have almost zero faith in devs when I see a beta with so many bugs and then hear them say they'll fix em before launch.

"World of Warcraft Server-Blade Auction to Benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital."

Seems like a very useless and pointless item to own. Even when I was a hardcore WoW raider, I'd have no desire to own an empty, old server blade.

I am still waiting for AMD to come out and say "haha, fooled you, our new chips are actually faster and cost less than Intel's"

I mean, really.. you came to the game about a year late, with less performance and more cost.. that was your brilliant scheme?

I hope the folks over at Intel had a pizza and beer day to celebrate just how awful their competition is. I was waiting to build a new rig, hoping that this bulldozer would be better than the 2600k by a fair bit, and cheaper to boot.. because, i thought it should be..coming out this long after the 2500/2600's.. boy did i mislead myself.

Well, new rig is gonna be a 2500k for sure now.

AMD seems like they'll be 1.5 cycles behind Intel as soon as Ivy hits.
