Must you pre order the game to play or can anyone actually play? I tried tying my battlenet account to the call of duty site, created a call of duty login, and all I could find was a place to enter a code, which I do no have because I have not pre ordered.

Here is an idea... Make a game that PC players want to actually play and they will flock to your app and store. Boom....

Hey Microsoft, hit me up, I'll replace Phil and for a fraction of his pay.

I wish they would invest some money into netcode improvement so games like PUBG and their Fortnite would run decent, and less on pretty stuff and green hair dye.

I mean it's good about the compensation, but at the same time they're kind of admitting that they monitor when you are using your hardware....
That is plainly spelled out in the TOS.
...and it's an absolute show stopper for anyone even slightly concerned about security and privacy. They have offered not a single decent reason for the invasive practices they've chosen to implement.

Well, it's Facebook we are talking about here. Their business model is selling peoples information. The reason that eludes you is cash money.

Hey Blue, Try disconnecting the cables that run to the battery and reattach them, even if they seem connected properly. I've had the same issue where even a jump would not work and there was no signs of any sort of power making it to the engine. I thought it was some electrical issue and called my mechanic buddy and he was like naw man, that doesn't sound right. He came over, jostled the cables, and still no power. Then he reseated the cables and the vehicle started right up. I'd try that before calling for a tow or whatever situation you're up against.

Good Luck.

News Comments > Loot Boxes Under Fire

I don't believe anyone has mentioned this yet, but depending on the type of game, loot boxes/crates can also turn the game into cesspool of cheaters. Take PUBG for example. Once loot crates were introduced, and random items could be sold for ridiculous amounts of money on the steam marketplace, the cheaters just flooded in.

Sure there will always be cheaters, but if you can make money from doing so....yeah..... thanks loot crates!!

The part where myself and 3 friends get to discuss strategy while playing instead of being thrown into a mindless meat grinder. There are a lot of good heart pumping moments because when you die... it's over. Each gunfight counts and it can get pretty intense, especially close to end game.

There are plenty of the same old stale FPS's that release year after year where they throw you in a shoebox size map with way too many players, explosions, and rapid fire kill feeds. It's refreshing to see a game at this scale.

I guess it helps when the guy in charge of development is actually a gamer?

Did they correct the issue with key mappings not working in vehicles for those that don't use WASD? That was pretty lame/lazy of them. I bet the console controls worked just fine......

So canned missions?!?!

No true offline\coop mode against AI? Ugh.

@Jdreyer - Thanks. Checking that out now.

I was playing AIX 2.0 mod for BF2 last night. Man, I would love a version of that in Frostbite. I was thinking about what made it so much fun. Yes, it's got that classic BF gameplay, but also there's a puzzle element to it: what and how do I make a difference such that we capture enough control points to win the game? Is it better for me to take to the skies in an A-10 and knock out armor so that my AI has an easier time capturing control points? Or should I lone wolf it to the enemy airbase, capture it, and deny the enemy air assets for a few minutes (until they roll up in a tank, kill me, and recapture it).
I like that combination of tactical thinking combined with action game play. And so many toys in that mod.

An HD remake of AIX would be the shit. Looking sexy in Frostbite, running smooth, and bringing back that gameplay man. Tactics seems to be what's missing nowadays with BF. They need to expand the maps, make transport vehicles have an actual role, and give squads multiple objectives to make an incentive to work together. The recent BF games feel more like an arena shooter. Just spawn in and sprint towards chaos. The feel is good, I just which it had more scope and scale.

Mod Tools? Idea

Apparently this includes the full game - can anyone confirm?

They also have BF2 listed as included - does the download include that as well?

Thanks for any info.

Separate downloads, I'm not sure about 2142 but I believe BF2 is the whole game, expansions and all.

You can also still play the Project Reality mod for BF2. They did the same thing once Gamespy was unplugged.

There is also a current early access game called SQUAD, which has former devs from the project reality mod and they are making something similar on the new Unreal engine.

Nothing has matched Rush in Bad Company 2 to date for me. BF3 and BF4 both had it but it just wasn't the same and I'm not really sure why.

Bad Company 2 was, by far, my favorite Battlefield. You earned everything. There was no "I'm too lazy to just play the game" cash shop and no obnoxious "Season Pass" bullshit. I couldn't get into BF3 and I gave BF4 a miss completely.

Loving something like a grown up requires recognizing what was good and bad about them. No prone-ing, no strafing while sprinting, servers capped at 32 players, there was a lot that the Bad Company series left to be desired if you're being honest.

And furthermore, do you actually know a single human being who's actually purchased a weapons upgrade pack? I don't. And If I did I wouldn't hate them for it, just feel bad for them that they obviously don't have enough time to enjoy unlocking things as per normal. Either way, it doesn't affect my enjoyment of the game one bit.

And BC2 kinda sucked because it only had one DLC, it was a GREAT one however, but only 4 maps. I had a lot of love for BC2, and would have wished that they'd support it with additional content. After BC2 Vietnam got stale, there was a void in my FPS playtime that wasn't really being filled with anything.

Supporting a game with extra content isn't a bad thing, I know this is a crazy notion. It's giving the people who love the game more stuff to love. And if you don't love the game, then you're not missing out. How is there still a discussion about this? People act like the 3-4 times that console games included DLC on the vanilla game-disc is the norm, and that any additional maps were just "cut" from the vanilla game. It's a strawman argument. Expansion packs have been around for literally decades.

Loving something like a grown up? Ease up Dr. Phil...

Many of us grown ups here grew up with the battlefield series. However, there are plenty of gamers out there that feel battlefield didn't grow up with them and they site BC2 as the last official offering.

BC and BC2 helped the frostbite engine enter the game. I would imagine hardware and their engine optimizations at the time would have made it more difficult to do a full blown large scale BF, so they made a small and tight game. What they did right is focus on gameplay and they nailed it, it was fun. This was the last game where DICE pretty much had full control of their game.

Next, EA has fully bought out DICE and controls the next development cycle. Since then, many of us feel the series has taken too much of a casual approach.

A solution for this would be mod tools. How about BF 2 mechanics, with maps being 2-3 times larger in scale and 100 people? How about a Project Reality HD remake? So much potential with the Frostbite engine, so little explored.

Mod tools would ensure every man and child had their respective gaming needs met.

Oddly enough, all the BF1 beta did for me was to remind myself that I own BF4. And while I won't know until release, after playing BF4 a few times over the last week, I have a feeling BF4 will probably be the better game and will satisfy my battlefield playstyle needs when in the mood.

Also shortly into the beta, I was reminded of how awesome it would be to have mod tools for the community. It seems like so much could be done with the Frostbite engine and there is so much wasted potential.

I would love to see a more PC oriented battlefield. Nothing really grabbed me with the BF1 beta, gameplay wise, it felt rather casual.


ArmA 3 too much for ya?

ArmA 3's unoptimized game engine is too much for me. None of the mods did much for me either. I played wasteland and king of the hill quite a bit but yeah...

Which brings me back to the Frostbite engine. I'd be curious to see if they could do something the scale of ArmA. Hell, not even that large. How about BF2 game mechanics and maps about 2-3 times as large and scale as they were, and about 100 people.

News Comments > DOOM @ 200 FPS Under Vulkan
39. Re: Doom, verticality May 9, 2016, 16:56 <Electric-Spock>
 
For an FPS, the M+K is far superior, just as for a fighting game like Tekken or Street Fighter, the controller is better, and even mo better is an arcade stick.

When designing a game to be playable using the inferior input device, the overall quality suffers. This is especially true in the FPS department with developers dumbing down their games for the consoles.

I pretty much only play MP FPS games on PC, and the popularity of console FPS gaming has really put a damper on things. Lately, I really only get excited about PC only releases, which are few and far between. Watching that Battlefield One trailer and seeing the XBOX One logo at the end just lets me know they are not making a game I want to play, but something I might want to play if it's not dumbed down too much.

I believe the guy in the trailer is just a random dude at EA headquarters on his knees begging for less console drivel and mod support for the PC.

Of course he is just about to catch a bitch slap from the current EA CEO, who's name is Cash DLC McDiamonds, I believe.

"Space is like a deep black ocean," Infinite Warfare narrative director Taylor Kurosaki said...

and their MP maps will be small sprinkle puddles filled with console larva hopefully feeding just long enough to get a no skill kill streak perk and become king of the shot glass...
