DICE on (Free) Battlefield 3 Battleog

BF3 goes to E3 on the Battlefield Blog has word from DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson on plans to show off Battlefield 3 at E3. They also discuss their Battlelog "web destination," and in a pretty straightforward dig at the just-announced premium Call of Duty Elite service, they make a point of noting this will not cost anything:
Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the game’s extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination – featuring powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more. Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)... zero dollars. We look forward to providing more information on these features in the near future!

Thats because instead they are doing the Origins thing.
If you use that instead of steam you get BF3 exclusives, who knows they might even require that instead of steam.

Had someone said to me 5 years ago, "In the year 2011, Duke Nukem Forever will actually be released, and people will be rooting for EA in the FPS market" I never would have believed them.

And yet here we are...

Will they be adding what is now known as Theater mode, or demo recording in the game? I was pleasantly surprised to see it in Black Ops and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was probably the first time demo recording was implemented in a non Valve/Source game in many years. Of course, they're making it a paid feature in COD Elite which means I won't be using it again but it is a nifty thing. So, will Battlefield have it as well?

Battlefield 2, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, and Halo 3 / Reach all support demo recording in some form. Most RTSs obviously do. I've probably missed something.

As far as I can tell, Bad Company 2 doesn't. It would be a great feature for the Battlelog thing though.

Right BF2 is the last one I'd count from your list. Quake Wars came and went and no one noticed . And I'm aware that Halo has demo recording... it's actually a bit sad that console games can have it and PC games miss out mostly. Was referring to FPS games only btw.

And yea, it would have been a great thing to have in BC2. All of us have had our own special 'Battlefield moments' while playing the game, and it would have been awesome to be able to record demos of them. This is why I hope EA will actually give a feature set comparable to COD Elite instead of just touting that it's free but not making it as good.

A little OT but still BF3 related.

Battlefield 3: Back To Karkand Pwned Special

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NamS_-cmxi0

Check out the behind the scenes of the Back to Karkand map pack. Specially liked the map comparisons of original Karkand BF2 maps and new BF3 ones.

It's a different approach, but essentially yes.
I shared the same thought though, a lot of people just go this route anyway because they are going to want the video for one reason or another.

If you haven't played Black Ops, their implementation of theater mode was a huge improvement. Every single game was recorded permanently and automatically, and could be easily played back in engine from any perspective. The timeline added automatic markers for events like kills and deaths, and generated a map of all of your deaths so you could analyze your strategy. If you just wanted to show off, you could tag games or make clips and submit them to the gallery in-game or export to youtube. It also made identifying cheaters very easy for server mods, even after the fact. All with a proper GUI interface instead of console commands.

Unless I missed a new detail, theater mode should still exist for free. They said they weren't getting rid of anything that's already in the game for cod elite.

And for the person with fraps question. Fraps lowers framerate which is not a good thing when you're trying to play a fast paced game.

I wish Battlefield 3 would match all the features in Black Ops like bots, player run servers, mod tools. Then they can keep talking trash.

Not to mention the ability to see the match from other points of view than your own, something that fraps is incapable of.

I have been holding off from upgrading my old C2Duo machine for this beast since I wan't to see what AMD has to offer in comparsion to Intels Sandy Bridge. But the problem for me is I can't find any specs for this yet. I thought they would be out now? Or I have I just missed it?

Oh, DICE, you got it all wrong. Don't you want to learn from Kotick? Kotick is a GENIUS! He lets his customers pay for his future "You gotta stay online to play even single player offline"-DRM! Stay online to play Kotick's games, and pay for it by paying for stats and social network bs. It's like Valve would ask you to pay for Steam! See, DICE, that's the way to make money: take it from the fools and give it to the greedy. That's pure shareholder value! Again, Kotick is a genius when it comes to making money. Now I'm off to buy some Activision shares, because I want my PROFIT!!! $$$$!!!

Oh, and Activision's going to buy DICE out sooner or later. And after that: ca-shing! PROFIT!!! Pay for the formerly free stats and service! This is the future of gaming! $$$!

My only fear is that in Bad Company 2, the friends part never seem to work. You think that they have that fixed, I hope so.

I've had it on pre-order since it could be bought. I'm not gonna miss out on one of the best games ever, what do you think I am, a COD noob..

Fraps records the video of your screen, battle recorder-type features record the game itself; the movement and actions of the players.
