    Yeah this is what I've got my eye on. For Skyrim too. Think I will have enough horsepower to play at personally satisfactory settings, I'm just hoping enough vram.

    My next cards(s) will def be 2GB I'm just hoping that doesn't need to be quite so soon.

    Your running a 23" monitor, so your res shouldnt be anything insane. 1GB of vram is plenty.

    Yeah so the change IP stuff isn't working for me. I tried FlyVPN and even when I've selected a Korean IP it still shows the same release date for me.

    Got my key from Cj's just to confirm with everyone else who ordered from the same place, they also changed it to EU version instantly upon my request. These guys are legit and they have great customer service. Also preloading through a DVD clone from online worked like a charm I am ready to go :)

    The Date and time are the same for every location. The VPN works by making your location change as it is reported to the date check server. It does not change the time the game is released.

    Yeah you'd think so...but monitoring (which is now possible again on AMD cards) shows pretty much all my newer games even BC2 using over a gig. Some seem to slow down and some don't so I don't know. Yes can use some system ram too but gonna be a performance hit.

    It will be 1am tomorrow night for us, Buckshot. I'll just have to wait until Tuesday night, unless I try out some of the Tomfoolery talked about earlier.

    More like Ankleshot. We side hilled a few miles and my ankles are shot:cry: The area we went in is full of wolf sign. They run the deer and elk off the mountain and get them on the service road that is inaccessible after the entry was washed out and run them down there. We come across about a dozen dead carcasses. Lot's of bear sign too. No Elk No Deer ! Well live ones any way.

    So... one day left to pre-order and I need to know if it is worth pre-ordering. Is it an excellent game or is it another EA failure? I don't care about graphics, I care about content. Obviously directed at the beta testers.

    Some specific questions:
    1) Did they get rid of the horrible weapon inaccuracy? I remember having to shoot a sniper rifle aimed directly at someone's head five times before any shots would hit. Only vehicles were accurate at range.

    2) Did they change the controls for aircraft to be keyboard and mouse friendly or does it still require a joystick?

    3) Are weapons fully customizable (e.g. can you strip a M-4 down and attach a 4x scope, suppressor, extended mag, and laser pointer on it)?

    4) Does it rely heavily on a cover system? So many games are doing that now and it pisses me off.

    5) For me, this game is competing for my money with Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Both are $60--can Battlefield 3 compete with Skyrim?

    Thanks for whatever answers you can provide.

    Well for me man, I played the beta for about 8hrs total and even with the bugs it was by far the best game I have ever played. :rockout:

    Each to their own I suppose. :)

    Can you answer some of those specific questions? #1 really, really, really bugs me (a potential deal breaker) and has been consistent throughout all the Battlefield games (less Bad Company). If I'm going to take the time to get a good shot off, I expect to be rewarded for it. XD

    1) It wasn't the weapons it was lag. I know because I did not have the issue you are describing. I found it a little too easy to kill people with a sniper rifle (M40A5) at distance. That has been corrected.

    2) Beta was incomplete. The game should now allow full control of key mapping so yes.

    3) Weapon customization will be the same. You get 3 attachments for your primary weapon. I don't remember the exact layout, but I did have a suppressed P-90 with an extended clip and laser at some point. I believe they were Sight/Accessory/Modification. So you can have a laser with a ACOG and a fore grip, but you can't have extended mag and foregrip.

    4) Cover is a smart thing to use, but there is no cover system. You get to cover by putting something between you and bullets. But there is not cover mode or shit like that.

    5) Depends on what you want to play. I have no intention of picking one cause I want both.

    I must admit it is a little annoying when you line up a camping sniper and get off the perfect headshot and it hits 3 inches to the left... At least most of the time the idiot hiding in the bush just stays there anyway. Second shot usually naiils em. :) Although I realise that is not the point. I found BC2 too easy to snipe people, as long as you got the drop right, it was headshot everytime.

    There definitely seems to be a lot more ballistic / bullet drop characteristics in bf3. Pretty sure I also read you can get hit by ricochets as well (I haven't noticed yet).

    1) I noticed it in single player against bots in BF1942-BF2142 (zero lag). You found it "a little too easy" in BF3 beta?

    2) Key mappings aren't the issue--it's the fact the ceiling is too low for jets to strafe and the helicopters don't default to a hover state. In helicopters, I always ended up getting in a drunken-like sway that never ends (correcting, overcorrecting, correcting, overcorrecting, etc.). It wasn't fun like in games such as GTA3-4, Just Cause, or Red Faction: Armageddon. I always have to focus on staying in the air instead of blowing shit up. I'm not going to buy a joystick/controller just for that.

    3) Awesome!

    4) Great!

    5) Same. A friend of mine wants BF3 more than I do. Deep down, I really don't want it no matter how good it is but...I feel almost obligated to get it. It sucks. :(


    That was the appeal of the Delta Force series but, how the bullet would behave was very predictable. It made the game more fun rather than being a nuisance like the older BF titles managed to do.

    Speaking on stupid ballistics, Brothers in Arms was the worst for it. I'd unload clip after clip after clip and it was sheer luck that a bullet would manage to hit. I was so, so, SO happy when I get a scoped rifle and didn't have to put up with that BS anymore. Needless to say, I never bothered to play the third game in the series. I had enough of it after beating the second game on the hardest difficulty.

    Well if deep down you really don't want to get it then why get it?
    I suspect if you do that you may tell everyone how
    bad it sucks when it isn't the game as much as it isn't
    your kind of game. Stick with what you enjoy.
    Why throw away $60 ? JMO !

    Yeah Once I know the distance from me to the target, I can hand out clean headshots with any bolt action sniper rifle in BF3. Remember to press Shift before shooting and not to use the semi-auto rifles for long range precision shots. That worked for me.

    2) I didn't fly enough to answer you question. There didn't seem to be a world ceiling if that is what you are talking about. I never lost control of the chopper, but I am sure holding the throttle down and letting the rise auto level you would fix that sway.

    I think you are over reacting and just need to calm down and wait til you can practice with the aircraft before jumping to, "this game sucks cause flying is too hard".
