    You reported someone on your 11,000th post! :roll:

    I was holding out for the slim chance I could get it on steam, but I will be buying it today or at least by the 25th to get locked into the beta. :toast:

    Do you have to buy it by the 25th to get into Early Access, or can you wait till the 27th?

    The first Mass Effect? Yeah the story and graphics are good, the gameplay is the first one is a bit different and not really in a good way. Though I finished it (not exactly common occurance for me) and am about half way through the 2nd (better than the first) but havent gone back as yet. Now I think I lost my saves too.

    There is a brief FAQ confirming that EA's Origin service will be required to acquire and play the Windows beta, and explaining how and when to qualify for early access, which commences on October 25th. ---That's what i read off of Bluesnews.com.

    EDIT: That's how i read it anyway.. What do you think? Will people that buy after the 25th get access? I don't want to wait and find out I missed it.

    I installed it on the first access to try to get into that one, but didn't get it. It's not as bad as the old website. It actual shows all of my old bf games in origins to download and install like steam. I was leaving it on, but it wanted to update 1 or 2 times a day... :eek:

    I don't think that's particularly worrisome especially for something so new. Surely it couldn't hurt to sniff out to where and with what it's talking if you felt up to it tho...

    Naw I don't think it's a bad thing.. I just didn't have a reason to leave it on until BF3. There wasn't any games i was playing off it. So, i just figured i would turn it off and then turn it on when BF3 came out and let it update to the latest version. :toast:

    BF3 configurator

    Hey Mindweaver, I would be very interested in a Configure Utility. I've used a couple for BC2, makes things a lot easier.

    just noticed this...

    "I SEE THERE ARE SERVERS UP FOR A SECOND MAP ON PC. CAN I ACCESS AND PLAY THIS MAP?
    NO. THIS MAP IS ONLY FOR INTERNAL BACK-END TESTS."

    any speculations on those "private servers" getting some extra visitors?

    Thanks, you can check out my BFBC2 Config Utility here. I've talked with mailman and he will add the link to the OP. TheMailMan78 is also going to work on graphics for the utility and Altered will be the first official Tester for the "BF3 Config Utility". :toast:

    A little off topic maybe, but me and my buddy just got seats at the nVidia GeForce LAN 6, aboard the USS Hornet. I think there will be some kind of BF3 activity going on there. WOOT!

    They have to. The EA Store is now called the Origin Store.

    You guys are helping me get pumped for this game. My RL friends are buying me MW3 for the Xbox so I can play with them, but I'm most likely going to tell them to stuff it.

    Yup as soon as the beta drops and we know what we are dealing with we can get started.
