    He's a bit over 2 now, this was back when he was 1 1/2, he's a sharp one, helps me work on comps, or tries, cars too. I take off the tires and lugs, he runs grabs the lug nuts and tries putting them back on.

    After a few months player count decreased dramatically for BF2142 and never really sold well. People simply preferred BF2 over BF2142. So IMO not the best example to use. Also, I don't see the definition of a true successor of BF2 if BC2 is incorporated. So no I don't agree there. But the list is provided as information currently available. So don't take it as a "dig" at them because there still need to be confirmation on some of them. But it's pretty obvious so far that elements of BC2 is being used in BF3. If all of the elements of BF2 were not used I would expect something other then BC2 elements.

    You guys read what i posted earlier?

    * One probe in Battlefield 3 on lighting will contain more info than an entire Bad Company 2 level.
    * Level destruction will be “believable”, but everything is destructible.
    * Character animation will be powered by a program used at EA Sports, ANT. AI and multiplayer characters will also different sets of animations and that there’ll be no more “gliding” animations that look off.
    * DICE captured its own war audios – tanks, helicopters, bullets, etc – at various distances to capture realism. There’ll also be better audio cues for certain actions, with it more easily able to listen to incoming threats.
    * Battlfield 3 dev team is nearly twice as big as the team was for Bad Company 2.
    * DICE wants the single-player pacing to be balanced with highs and lows.
    * “Fuck” will be used a lot, so expect an M-rated game from the ESRB.
    * A significant narrative that will go with the single-player.
    * No complaints from console gamers is why the PC version will support 64-player multiplay on PC SKU.

    I relize the header says, "GI drops large BF3 update: 24 players for console, more", but there is a lot more about PC...

    I understand where you are coming from man. I fear some things too. However BC2 was/is a great game. If they pull some working elements from it then its for the good. BF2 was/is a great game. No doubt. But it could use some improvements too.

    If BF3 ends up being the love child of BC2 and BF2 then I would say things could be a LOT worse. :toast:

    Oh and 2142 failed because it was to much like BF2. Maybe this is why they are pulling from BC2 instead?

    Most of the failure behind 2142 came from the lack of support for BF2. Many vocally protested the game because they wanted support for BF2 (forget the specifics). And others simply didn't like the direction the game was taking which was why I didn't think 4 kits was a plus. Anyway, I'll be paying attention to BF3 details. I just find it odd that they are not forth coming with the general gist of online game play with a release that is rumored as soon as October 2011. Let alone a beta rumored in a few months. Another thing is that they've increased their staffing (I read something like 3x-4x more since BF2) and had 5+ years to develop the game. So I think expectations of not gimping features is reasonable. However, after GDC and the beta it will be clear by then if people are going to buy the game or not. :toast:

    I'm keeping the faith. October is a long ways away and BF3 was in development BEFORE BC2. This is no rush job.

    Oh and I was a early beta tester for 2142. Way before it was public. The biggest complaint anyone had is it didn't offer anything new other then Titian mode. Anyway there are always going to be nay sayers. The game could be the most epic thing to cross the screen in decades and some will always say its not as good as BF2. Just like no one can cook better then your own mom :)

    That little F#$ker will be taking your dog tags in no time! :toast:

    Caleb posted the first link to the full GameInformer Scans.

    I have copies if they happen to disappear :)

    I have heard that those are actually poor "camera phone" pictures of Game Informer. I'm hoping to see some better quality ones, soon.

    Thank you so much for this!

    I can't believe it, I'm even more pumped for this game now.

    It better be good. It means more to me than MailMan's kids for Christ's sake!

    I'll be more neutral until I'm convinced otherwise. Yes, there were a few reasons why BF2142 didn't do well. For example, more BF2 support, direction of BF2142, game play, etc to name a few. But the general notion is that people want a BF2 experience not a BF2142 experience. And true there will be naysayers but I wouldn't generalize them simply because they protest. Sometimes, it worth reading what they object to regardless if the opinion is agreeable or not. It why we all have opinions :p.

    But to what I was saying earlier about BF3 details; even RO:HOS is offering a video (in Nov 2010) of what to expect game play wise and that game won't be release until 3rd quarter or so. That too is suppose to be a 64 player game. So there will be at least some options as which multi player FPS game one can play this time around, preferences aside. It will be interesting to see what both have to offer as time moves forward.

    I went back and reread yours then reread mine and discovered that I really flubbed it from memory.

    Anyways, if you want you can take it out on me when BF3 launches.

    I agree. If this game is a failure DICE is done as a big player in the industry. So much rides on this game its ridiculous. They will not let it fail.
