If Roberts had a half a brain, he'd simply resign as lead and bring in someone who can actually ship something substantial within a year. The way this is heading, a court is going to step in and assess the situation. Whether his intentions were true or not doesn't matter any longer, the damage has been done.

We ended up cooking that brisket indoors rather than on the smoker,

Oh the humanity!

what a waste. Brisket belongs in a smoker....period. The only Brisket that gets an indoor pass is Corned Beef.

how about offering a free weekend period?

Its impossible to pirate the damned game so how about allowing folks to try the game out to see if its worth buying at all?

Co-op will be peer to peer, as was the Co-op mode in Battlefield 3.

Dedicated servers but not the kind a clan would rent out and call their own, nobody except EA will have the ability to tweak gameplay settings. No high-ticket servers or community based administration.

Clans will have to utilizes whatever party mode they enable, join on friend from your Origin friends list - however since the game is setup for two man fireteams joining on a friend most likely won't put you on the same team, just in the same server.

"skill based matchmaking" they made the same claim with Titanfall, the general hope was that cheaters would eventually be matched up with other cheaters.


Thanks for the good news.....yeesh!

Anyhoo, I hope the game isn't just Battlefield 4 reskinned....

are they allowing cross-platform play in the beta does anyone know?

You mean Xbox One players against PC players? lol that'll never ever happen.

unless I misunderstood an earlier article on another site, they are indeed allowing cross platform play...then again, I'm getting old and feeble, Dog

Anyhoo, compared to the last CoD game this seems to be a bit more refined. The jump-pack and mantling are much smoother and the maps aren't a choppy, unoptimized mess. The downside is that they are STILL using the same fucking renderer that is based on Quake 3 code for fucks sakes. They need to either bite the bullet and license a 3rd party engine or write their own from the ground up. The game looks like shit.

what happened to the days when having a "beta test" actually meant the developer NEEDED your help with various aspects of the game?

With every "trailer" this thing is looking less and less interesting. Every star system is simply small variations on a basic model.

One of the (very) few things I did KIND OF respect Smart for was his opinion on the gaming industry.

the article was of course TL;DR but given that Ive read some rational criticisms of RSI from other disillusioned backers Im wondering if ol Commander Knappy might have some salient points going......

2142 was the last decent Battlefield game IMO. It sold pretty well and I don't see DICE doing anymore current era combat without burning out the franchise.

I'll give it a "I believe the rumor" rating.

IMO, the talent of the art department does far more for the visual enjoyment of a game than the potential of the renderer to pull off a lot of fancy technical bells and whistles.

By all accounts I thought this was going to be a huge hit with the team-based shooter crowd. I've heard almost no one talking about it after launch

Anyone know what the numbers for this thing were? Was it considered a success or no?

I hate to be the critical guy seeing I loved the first two, but, DICE is developing this. Since the Bad Company series thats all theyve done, make variations on that. Their games have become rote, boring shiite.
