Its funny watching GameStop skitter around like an ant, too and fro, attempting to avoid the fate it is destined to fulfill. They really are grasping at any thread of relevance and screaming how much gamers need them, all the while viciously lashing out at their demographic like the petulant child they are. Good riddance Game Stop. You will not be missed. No tears will be shed. Your just another failed paradigm on the ash heap of history. Say hello to beta max for us.

GameStop bought Impulse. Their stores may go away slowly. As long as people buy from Impulse, they will still exist.

Selling their own brand of tablets does seem skitterish though.

Social type log in daily games are always after microtransactions that let you do more per day than normal.

Currently in a game now.

This isn't a social Facebook type game. No microtransactions. It has turns but your units move in real time. So its useful to check the map and react to things more frequently.

Never played the first two, how does the Blue's crew rate the previous two incarnations?

Never played BF1 but sure played a heck of a lot of BF2 and BF2142. Bought Bad Company 2 but it wasn't for me.

Go play Battlefield Play4Free and see if you like it. Its almost identical to BF2.

Only thing I could compare the BF games to was Planetside. Planetside was much more massive than 32vs32. However, it got so outdated. Thats why Planetside 2 is hopefully going to be big.

I ordered a physical copy from NewEgg when they had a sale. How many CDs I'm wondering?

Surprised by the low graphic card requirements given how nice Rage looks.

Just as I'm not going to buy Modern Warfare 3 unless it's on EA's Origin, I'm not going to buy Minecraft unless it's on EA's Origin. EA, EA Origin, and everyone who works for EA or contracted by EA, is awesome.

Jester

The BF3 alpha has made me join you Overon. We both think the same thoughts.

It looks very on-rails and geared toward consoles. Way to ruin a beloved franchise.

If you can re-sell your downloaded games then the developers and publishers will start charging more up front. They will also start doing other things to make you want to purchase new rather than purchase used.

Gabe must know this. Its not complicated. I expect never to be able to re-sell a downloaded game. Doesn't bother me.

"operating system, Application usage (including but not limited to successful installation and/or removal), software, software usage and peripheral hardware". "EA may also use this information combined with personal information for marketing purposes and to improve our products and services."

Make money from making a game. Make extra money by selling marketing data. Be extra scummy by providing giving your users no choice.

The alpha server browser was on a web page. It wasn't bad, had the general stuff you expected in a server browser.

The web page would also show your stats and stuff.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Will Require Origin
69. Re: Battlefield 3 Will Require Origin Aug 11, 2011, 19:10 Nate
 
In the alpha feedback, I complained about having to install 4 pieces of software just to play. Browser plugin, Origin, the alpha itself and I think the last was a 2nd piece of browser software. I also didn't like having to start the game from the browser. You couldn't just launch with a simple desktop icon.

Origin popping up and displaying stuff each time I started playing was also annoying. I eventually just dragged the window mostly off screen and left it there.

Despite all of these annoyances, I still pre-ordered.
