I remember back when damn near every post on this site didn't turn into senseless arguing.

I pre-purchased the game on the consoles because like other posts before me, I spent all day at a desk. If you have a PC hooked up to a tv with great controls, fantastic! But don't be shocked if a dev doesn't put much time into the small fraction of gamers that have that type of setup.

I just got done with Dungeon Hunter alliance on the PS3, and enjoyed it tremendously for the lootfest with 3 other players that it was. A bargain at 12 bucks!

The real question to me is whether or not this title will have the longevity to withstand even 3 months.... Time will tell. There are a few titles with me personally that I have played for years and years, and am anxiously awaiting a new one in that category (TF2, Diablo 2) etc)

I am on my third console as well and I feel every one I get back from MS is only going to make it another couple months.

Funny thing is, out of folks at work with one, out of 8 people, only one of them is still on their first 360.... Industry standard failure rate my ass...

In a way, I am torn because the live backend and games coming out recentely are superb. But on the other hand, I cannot recommend the console to anyone without warning them of the failures first...

This will be a no-brainer purchase for me.
I really enjoyed the SP mods for HL and I'm sure these will not dissapoint.

On another note, did the "close" button on the animated add not work for anyone else?

By that point, you already have purchased it......and you know how they market it "instant purchase and download"...

Make fun, but my EA stock does, and has done very well.
EA titles through Steam? Impulse purchases ahoy!

And my right mouse bound to backwards......its the way myself and all my coworkers play, how people can play with the wasd setup is beyond me..,......

This bug is hilarious because it always assumes that mouse1 (or 2 I forget) is fire and when the game gets an input from mouse one which is a movement key put actually tries to fire it crashes it. There are MANY players on the PBF forums (I know) with this same issue.

Give it a try, bind mouse1 to a movement key and then use spotted or apply for commander, its a reproducable instant crash every time, documented on the EA support site and thankfully fixed in the patch.

Oh yeah and their "fix" "Use mouse1 for fire"......heh , I am not changing my controls that I have used since quake1.

I am excited about this patch because it will fix my most irrating problem, I have my left mouse button bound to forward which causes the game to crash if I use "spotted" or click to apply for commander. Being a sniper really uses a lot of benefit if I cannot even spot for my team.

And I was on an EA server last night where nobody on our team wanted to be commander and I would have if it wouldn't make the game crash to desktop.

Besides that binding issue, the game is silky smooth for me and I am pleased as punch with it. Well, besides the worst in-game browser to EVER reside in a mutliplayer product.

Now I am sitting here stewing about it.

How the hell will mod teams have servers? With permission not to get blacklisted? I am not completely convinced they mean for unranked servers.....Perhaps they just included the bit about the server hacks in with the news about the server releases?? A PR man having too many drinks at lunch?

In order to have a level playing field, the rules and conditions must be even across the board for ranking and statistics to actually MEAN something.

I really do not see whats so wrong with this. They are at least attempting to make sure that the rules are the same for ranked servers. Having one ranked server with all weapons unlocked isn't fair to the players on the other ranked servers whereas the server admins are playing it safe.

Now with that said, Don't put horshit like that in cleartext files and expect gamers not to fuck with them. Jesus are they stupid as hell sometimes.

I am an older gamer in my 30's with wife and kids, and as much as it saddens me to say, I agree with some of the feeling about pc gaming dying...

I walk into my local EB or Gamestop and a TINY section is for pcgames...all the rest for consoles.

I pretty much KNOW when I run a console game, it will be a smooth experience.

A 350 dollar video card, 1.5 gigs of ram, 15,000 rpm scsi, dual 20 inch lcd's, etc. I have and do continue to invest in pc gaming, but quite frankly, it's getting old. Three big titles a year (for my tastes) is really not justifying the money I spend on PC gaming to make sure I can run the titles with MOST of their options turned on. I really feel for the developers having to support so many variables of hardware/spyware/idiot pre-teen kids that whine that their Nvidia TI card will not work with a new game 4 years after their card was released.

Reading all of your whining about steam every single valve post is amusing. You do not HAVE to have steam. If a game required it, again, you have a choice to not have steam and not play that title.

To me, Steam works great, I can choose what I get/want/download when I want. And for impatient gamers like me, the ability to click something and have it asap is great.

Bitching about hard drive space? Jesus Christ, what day and age are we in? You mean to tell me you have the latest pc hardware to play these games well and you are nickel and diming over hard drive space? I would hope most of you arent tooling around in 8 gig drives anymore.

I think this is a fine way to distribute a game. I am very likely to snag a copy if I enjoy it even a little just because of the ease of getting the full item in my hand asap.
Like adult sites, its paying for instant gratification, even if the content isnt the greatest. Could you imagine an adult site where you had to wait to get a login? And then to think, "the site isnt that great, but at least I only spent 5 dollars"

I have a Audigy 2 and it will work fine for ONE play session. If I quit and go back into the game, It will be missing sounds, like the enemies firing rounds. Restart the pc, and all is well again... I have tried everything suggested and of course I have the newest drivers for everything.

That said, I have a:
Soyo Dragon mobo
1 gig corsair ram
chaintech geforce fx 5900
audigy 2

and for some reason there is no way I cannot crank most things up to even "high" to get playable rates. At 1024 x 768 I have to have most things set at med to get 50-60 fps.

I'm starting to regret this 5900 I purchased 7 months ago.

Some players (like me) love cutscenes and in some circumstances and games, cutscenes are the best way to forward the story.

Although I do hate it when TV commercials or box pictures ONLY show cutscenes on it, trying to make you believe, "you'll be playing this!"

I (and everyone else I play with ONLY play ctf on desert combat. To me, conquest is absolutely BORING. CTF with 2 good teams is hard as hell and I we have some great fun and it really does take good teamwork to grab the flag and make it back to your base.

I only play ctf in Desert Combat, and simply put, if your team has all the outposts and is closing on the un-capturable enemy base to go for the flag, spawn camping is fine.

Its hard as hell to grab the flag and get the hell out of there before the whole opposing team spawns and makes mash potatoes out of you. Your teamates HAVE to kill the enemy as soon as they spawn.

I checked all my local stores (best buy, gamestop, EB) and none of them had it in yet. Oh well. I will pick this one up as I have not purchased a pc game in quite some time as the consoles have been getting a lot of my money.

Yup, same here. Battlefield is ALL fucked up with these. I have spent the last 2 hours trying to fix it. Some things in the game were actually invisible, including some walls/buildings..........
