It wasn't GPU or CPU lag at all, literally the other cpu bot players were lagging out and I was amazed.

worst pre-order mistake I've made yet.

What lag? I've played 60 hours. Haven't run into the lag your describing.

Granted there were some bugs at launch. However, Brink isn't as bad as you all are describing.

Don't care about this physical warfare pack. The 3 extra maps that you can only get by pre-ordering with EA is the issue.

What sucks is having to pre-order from EA's online store to get the additional 3 maps. You can't even pre-order BF3 yet from Steam.

Split the player base from day 1. Good thinking!

Could care less about the weapon bonus thing. I'm in it for the tanks/APCs.

Do you have insomnia? If so, play this game.

LOL, too true.

Graphics are OK, the only thing to do is run missions. Endless, endless, repetitive missions.

29. Less BF3 maps for me! Jun 3, 2011, 19:04 Nate
 
The extra BF3 maps for pre-orders stinks! Splits the community. Of course you can only pre-order it from EA, which I'm not going to do.

Yay! Less BF3 maps for me!

I used to use onboard sound and it did a very good job with a 5.1 system with those multicolored 1/8" jacks.

Then I moved to a receiver with a home theatre 7.1 setup and discovered that the optical out on my onboard audio only does stereo as confirmed by the board manufacturer.

Regrettably, I am now using a Soundblaster drop-in until I upgrade the whole system and find a board that supports 7.1 Dolby on optical.

Uh, forget optical. You want to go HDMI. Assuming your receiver supports HDMI or your buying a new one. Then you just need the video card, which you may already have since your reading Blue's News.

I took out my soundcard since I've been running the HDMI out from my ATI card into my receiver. No issues, what so ever.

Doing the same. MB On board sound disabled in BIOS. HDMI/LPCM 7.1 for the win!

I've found you just cant be as frustrated when you die in this type of game, you must expect it, because it's wild gameplay.

I've found it very easy to be frustrated...

Whoo boy this game had me frustrated at some points. If your team is stuck progressing in a map. Usually its because they don't look for alternate routes. Take a new route, flank the enemy. Log jam busted.

Easier said than done of course. The climbing on stuff and spotting routes. These take a while to pick up.

What the... no K/D ratio displayed? Boycott for life!

Seriously, how is Valve going to penalize/reward me if certain numbers aren't openly tracked?

You get a score each round and awards. One of the awards is most kills. So instead of looking at your K/D ratio, you start looking at your score and awards.

Some servers give you a good ping but then have bad server lag after you start playing. In game lag is well hidden and so your left with a bad, frustrating experience.

If you get on a good server, the game is a blast. The AI bots are also hit or miss depending on the server. You can run into ultra deadly bots or brain dead simpletons that don't like to fire their gun.

Weapon choice, weapon addons and the body size you choose are a key thing. Progressing up to level 20 doesn't take long.

What are you two talking about? The graphics look excellent for this type of game. The animations are quite nice too.

This is full 3D not what Diablo 2 had.

Nice they are adding this layer to the game. I did enjoy the beta for a while but Rift is consuming all my time now.

I'm not impressed with it.
The graphics are good, but there's too much taken from WoW, and it comes off as trying too hard.

Rift not being original enough is easily agreed.

"comes off as trying too hard", I'm not even sure what your saying there. You want them to release a sloppy mess of a game?

Anyway. I've already purchased Rift, but thats only because Guild Wars 2 doesn't look like it will release anytime soon.
