No single player for free so not interested. I'd rather pay for and support Bad Company 2.
Not a very intelligent post/mentality. You'll find yourself "not interested" in many things, because many things of substance aren't free.

The lag allows people to exploit Marathon/Commando/Lightweight and run around and knife everyone without you being able to do much about it.

Yep, this is a pretty bad problem with MW2 right now. Got me and my gaming group to move from MW2 to BFBC2. We are having much more fun now.

Gogamer MW2 PC @ $49.90

Not that it makes it a bargain or anything.


Yeah, I think I paid $40 on amazon for the 360 version and still feel ripped off...

Did anyone else notice this game costs $59.99 not $49.99 like every other PC games? I will not bother buying this game. Wanted to try the free weekend but the download seem to be all bugged.

Preloading this is a phantom operation. You don't get ANY indication but yes it will download. Check your under your steam folders and you can see it expanding.
I will check again later since I turned the PC off and am currently not in my room.

You would have to be a fool to believe that they would include single player in a free weekend when it only lasts 7ish hours.

But anyway, I love this game on the 360. Granted, it isn't the same experience as the PC gamers have had, so I could see why I seem to be enjoying it more.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 is blown out of proportion. It isn't really that good. I think a lot of people are just jumping on the bandwagon so they can stop talking about/playing COD. The destructible environment is the only thing going for it, but even that is not enough to outweigh the weapon balance, camping, and teamkilling issues.

TLDR: I want BF3 now.

I never really got into the CoD type MP. All I'm interested in is playing the SP part, but I'm not paying $60 for that. I'll wait until it goes on sale for $15 like I did with the last one.

Yes. It was the first game to bump into the $60 price range for PC games. Their claim is that they give you so much more of a game it warrants the price increase. Yet they removed dedicated servers and require logins that are completely useless (IW net).

As for BC2, I have no idea how people stick up for that one as well with no user run dedicated servers thus no custom maps. I wrote off that game as well when it was announced.

They fucked up and screwed the PC gaming crowd. Even this late in the game, you can't polish a turd.

Fuck MW2
And to StingingVelvet. The truth is NOT in the middle. The lag on IWNet causes all sorts of exploits. I know because I have played it on PS3. I have a 25mbps connection (Meaning if it weren't for IW.net I could be playing on servers with a 5 ping in some cases and instead I'm stuck playing P2P at 100+ ping).

The lag allows people to exploit Marathon/Commando/Lightweight and run around and knife everyone without you being able to do much about it. Granted if you get them at a distance theres a good chance they will die. But if they come around a corner and are within 20 feet. Good luck. You've got maybe a 10% chance you'll kill them. The other 90% of that time, you'll think you're putting a whole clip into them, only to die to a knife because on their end, they've already killed you and moved on.

So no, don't give me that truth is in the middle bullcrap. IW.net blows and everyone knows it.

Screw MW2 for free. Pay for BC2 and have more fun than you will with a free game. Sad but true.

I'd guess it's more of an effort to sell more map packs than it being an issue with dwindling numbers, but who knows.

This is the correct answer I'd think. Reignite the interest by having people who don't own it bug people who have owned it but stopped playing to come back.

Something tells me numbers are dwindling significantly - as they have no reason to do this considering their original sales numbers. Do they really think they will get the other people to buy this?

I won't.

Wow, it's already come to this?. BC2 must be doing really well.

Or perhaps they want more free listen servers for the weekend.

This game should have had a real demo.

I also anticipate that demand will be so great for this that most people won't be able to download it just as what happened with the first UT3 free weekend on Steam.
