I see the glow skins are back ^^ (enemy soldiers not affected by shadows) looked very wonky in Bad Company 2.. and looks super wonky here. Still, looks pretty. Just saying, all Battlefield games do this, I just think it looks super weird to see a glowing enemy in a dark room

depends on how the light source hit's the player, I found the ability to see players in shadows rather difficult, probably as it should be.

It was hard to ID friend from foe with the motley crew type atmosphere, the customization was baked in so after awhile you could sort of get a read on an enemy player from short range, could be much worse in the final version when everyone is wearing a different outfit.

Battlefield is now being fought over by people wanting simulation and those wanting it to remain arcade. It'll hit somewhere in the middle satisfying neither crowd fully.

The focus on the maps will be on Global Operations with other modes shoe horned into them, I know this saves dev time and hard drive space but doesn't always make for the best experience possible. Conquest on this map felt like playing conquest on most of the Bad Company 2 maps that were designed for Rush mode, rather confining and difficult to maneuver in ground vehicles.

Yes, bit of a joke showing this video off on youtube but at least it shows that they're not using wonky filters to desaturate the graphics.

How are they going to create enough variation to keep you playing? If the entire game is flying through tube like canyons shooting stuff, uh might be fun for a few hours.

Already looking at pulls from other games in terms of gameplay mechanics instead of feeling like "hey, I've never played a game like this before" isn't a good sign, is it?

Poor Jar Jar Actor, I'm sure he drys his tears with the royalty checks.

The actor and musician has reportedly been considering performing a one-man show timed to the anniversary of ‘Phantom Menace’.

His opening line should be "Yes I did it! I ruined your childhood!"

own it and wear it with pride

That's some class-A empathy you have there sir.

I don't think he really had it as bad as he want's to make people believe.

He could walk in public without anyone knowing who he was, Jake Lloyd however, now I do feel sorry for that dude. Just judging from his appearance change over the years I would say the whole thing had a really negative affect on him. What's funny is that people are really wanting Hayden Christensen back in the Star Wars spotlight, I don't blame his wooden delivery of lines in the prequels on bad acting - that was all on George Lucas. But unless it's another pre-darth vader movie of Anakin Skywalker I don't think they'll be calling him in for the movies.

Hopefully someone thought to take the kids coffee.

Tie one end of the rope around the kid and the other around the bumper of a 4x4 and pull them out one at a time. Redneck Rescue 101. E Z

Love these "Robots are taking our jerbs" stories, we're so far off from having robots agile enough to perform manual labor on tasks like nursing I doubt it'll happen in our lifetime. I could see automated truck driving but I think it'll be like flying drones remotely where you'll still have a human taking over the controls via some sort of VR experience in order to navigate city streets.

I'm ready for the singularity, merge my consciousness into the machines and hop on the first intergalactic transport off this rock. I hope I can take my CD's with me because it's going to be a really long journey.

I wonder if this one will end up being a huge flop.

I used to love playing battlefield games.. but... the way BF1 was handled with the game, support, DLC's etc... im kind of over it.

maybe I'm just getting old.

They seem to have righted DLC conundrum and are going for cosmetics for monetization. I don't mind having to put up with some crazy looking soldiers as long as we don't have fragmenting DLC.

I had a lot of fun with the alpha, in conquest and they're new operations mode, which doesn't include behemoths.

No premium pass sounds good on paper but we'll need to see how that plays out in reality. The Battlefront community got screwed pretty hard with the limited extra maps they've released for Battlefront 2.

The gameplay improvements are pretty nice, once again you'll be hard pressed to find a first person shooter with as fluid of movement system from the competitors (can't stand the feel of Call of Dooty games). The limited ammo / health mechanic takes a little getting used to but unless they remove the ammo and health stations like they have in the alpha it's not a completely restrictive game change.

Classic IntelliMouse? Pft, That is the classic. I still have one of those around here (and it still works). That non-ambidextrous model came out a good bit later.


Meh. The mouse only works in modern >=7OS's.

A true classic would work in win95 if need be.

If you really want to, it will work fine in Windows 95. I don't know why you would want that, but it can be done. What I imagine you are thinking is USB wasn't supported until the second edition of Windows 98. The first edition could only enable it work the 'Gold' patch. If you worked tech support back when lots of people were still running 98, you might remember this as users tended to brick their install with it (usually a Winthough I never figured out exactly how).

Anyway, that all works fine on XP+, it doesn't require 7. Unless a joke is just flying over my head here.

Yeah that's the classic InteliMouse, guess left handed people are at a loss with the new one, yet again.

Neighbors who call police on 12-year-old mowing lawn increase his business, customer says.

He needs to be fined for not having a business license, all his equipment needs to be impounded until the proper paperwork has been filed. Looks like a cash business, IRS needs to get in on this too.

Currently, most manufacturers are offering 8-year/100,000-mile warranties for their batteries. Nissan is providing additional battery capacity loss coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles

I bet that detail isn't in the sales literature, neither is the cost of replacing the cells.

I can understand having some FPS shooter parts to break up the space ship shooter parts but it seems silly putting this much FPS work into a game that's suppose to be a space ship shooter.

picking up mundane objects and twirling them around in your virtual hand is beyond silly.

Global Operations, opening attacking side is a meat grinder of die and respawn stuck in a loop. Needs more cover on that opening section for the attackers and the planes need more health before you're forced to jump out.

I think they should bump up the amount of ammo you start with to 3 mags, especially since they don't restrict high ping bastards from joining servers. More deaths from lag than anything else with the matchmaking.

It's Battlefield set in a sort of WWII environment, going to need to clan it up in this one. You can lone wolf but you'll suffer.

I would say that Disney can now go about ruining other SciFi franchises now like Alien and Predator but they're already pretty much worthless, the franchise cross overs are going to be amazing. Iron man vs Predator, let's put the Alien in the Star Wars universe.

Looking forward to going to Disneyplex to see all the movies that Disney releases, media monopolies are great!
