    Don't freak guys, the Alpha is only good until Monday, August 1st anyway. It's not like you're missing out on much. And being in the Alpha doesn't give you beta access either.

    No, but I have $50 worth of crap titled "Medal of Honor, Limited Edition" that I hope will take care of the beta:laugh:

    Luckily, it was a Christmas present from my bro-in-law. He's a good one to have, while everyone else gives my clothes and junk, he is always good for a new game. Incidentally, he's the one who got me going down the devious road of building rigs.

    Add me to the list who got a alpha invite. Looks pretty good on a I7-2600k with a 470GTX.

    There have been issues for some playing the BF3 Alpha with Nvidia video cards. They have just released a set of drivers to deal with this issue.

    twitter.com/repi: "Please use the just released Geforce 280.19 Beta drivers for the #bf3 alpha trial: http://bit.ly/r46j3H battlelog: http://bit.ly/pqSXQS"

    Ha ! I like MOH better then any newer COD games. It isn't perfect , but I'll play that before COD's or Homefront. That is how I feel about HF. $50 piece of crap : )

    Ah come on tell us how you really feel :roll:

    Good to know. Was wondering about crossfire as I'd rather not be stuck with a single 6850 for obvious reasons.

    Others keep being patient and trying and, yes, I too would like further confirmation that this ends Monday. Here's a quote from a DICE dude in the Reddit thread where I learned to screw the email and just try logging in again. Got my code but then a thunder storm rolled in so had to shut down and just went to bed.

    I get a warning about needing to upgrade drivers but the drivers I have play the game fine. Even in alpha it runs really damn smooth. Not having played bad co 2 (or any FPSs for that matter) in a while, man do I suck! Ha. I really like what I am playing even though I hate rush. I just don’t know if I will buy the game still.

    Yeah. It's definitely an Alpha (not full featured even in terms of destruction and some other things) and also it's just Rush (meh). If I didn't get a code I honestly wouldn't be too bummed.

    I think that was a tongue-in-cheek remark. He said earlier he got a code.

    I have one. Without getting the email first. But this did not work for everyone as yet such as Kurgan and I think Scrizz offhand. However they could still end up on EAs list, so to speak. As usual this just happens with no real, good info from them.

    Start reading at the top of the last page for the whole story if you'd care to...
    1Kurgan1 and Sir B. Fannybottom say thanks.

    Well I think that was more just a jab at the NDA. :)
