Unable to resume my single player because I log in and it tells me the "servers are full" Which is apparently just maintenance, but the game says full...

Eat it all you diehard fans, this is bullshit as much as I enjoy this game. Along with Inferno being a testing ground for what to nerf, Blizzard sees if you can find a feasible way through it they will nerf those means / skills.

I work in VFX, and on some film stuff and I can only say we use 4k textures for movies etc.. which would make these textures epic. 4K textures just loading into memory is quite a pain, can't imagine that on everything running in a game in real time. I hope so that would be nice,

Steve Jobs repeatedly killed off any possibility of Apple competing with Microsoft for gaming, which is one of the reasons that Macs have remained a niche product. Now he's dead Apple is finally able to move on and this looks to be the first sign of such progress.

I don't see any advantage to Apple buying out Steam, as they could never kill off PC support without a huge backlash - that would destroy any value that the acquisition had. More likely we'll see Apple and Valve working together to increase the number of multi-platform titles, which would benefit both companies AND gamers.

You may have forgot the part about the first Halo being demoed at macworld back in the day when Steve Jobs introduced a guy from bungie to show it off.... before MICROSOFT bought it.

Apple may be the easy target with their money right now but with the state of windows 8 and a new Xbox I assure you guys, Apple is the least of your worries, esp when you guys hate the company and don't own any of their computers anyways, it doesnt affect you.

Now Windows 8 on all your PC's that's something to scream about.

Hardly. It's free if you play it on Android, which is just about cheap enough for me.

I don't think it's free on the other hundreds of platforms.

Just make a Skyrim Multiplayer Expansion ala Red Dead Redemption?
It's not so much about making a MMO, the sandbox is already there, just let run servers so multiple people can play in it at the same time.

Red Dead's multiplayer was fucking amazing, keeps the PS3 with GIMX emulation from collecting dust.

It gets into a gray area because in real world warfare having a gun mounted 40mm grenade launcher with high explosive ammo, would give you a huge advantage, but I think it can be fixed with real world solutions.

It's not really a gray area because Battlefield has never been a realism/simulator experience. Explosives are being nerfed because there are too many maps based on chokepoints and explosives ruin those maps.

Either way, a better fix is what I mentioned with 203's. Close range 203's wouldn't prime and the round wouldn't go off.

Realism or no realism the game uses factual weapons in a modern combat setting and you can't just remove it. It's certainly lame to pull a call of duty and just make the 203 do half the damage.

My own peeve in BF3 is the grenade launchers or "noob tubes" but I don't think they should be "fixed". AWP stuff

I know this wasn't directed at me but having played both games extensively I don't think they can be compared. If nothing else the AWP requires skill to use properly whereas the M320 effectively ruins chokepoint heavy maps (of which there are several in BF3) because anyone can sit there spamming away with it. It is reloaded quickly, the class that can equip it can also resupply themselves and it even hurts entire groups with a large splash radius.

It totally needs to be fixed and that's why it's directly referenced as such in the patch notes. Most of the balance changes are sensible and have nothing to do with hurting "good" players who are just effective with certain weapons, it's about certain weapons turning any player into a force without any requisite skill offset.

I don't think the situation is as bad as Dades or other people are saying but there are several standouts that need to be addressed. Dice originally said that they were going for style choices with weapon selection, it's not an upgrade tree. Guns are supposed to be tailored to specific situations and preferences, overall they've hit that goal but there are some outliers.

It gets into a gray area because in real world warfare having a gun mounted 40mm grenade launcher with high explosive ammo, would give you a huge advantage, but I think it can be fixed with real world solutions.

Nobody probably played americas army here but one thing they got right was the 203 grenades wouldn't explode if you shot a wall thats 10 feet away, because the actual 203 round only becomes live after a certain amount of rotations in the air. Therefore actual 203's have a failsafe so if you shot the ground beneath you with a 203 it would just bounce off and seem inert.
