    There is nothing in the post you've quoted of me that says I'm jumping the gun about anything :confused:. Being neutral about it and explaining why isn't jumping the gun.

    Lol that's not jumping the gun. There are plenty of games that have released video content well before release. That was just one of them, there are others like Dirt 3, etc. The point I'm making which is similar to what Erocker posted is that we should see some video of it. Because it's not unheard of to see some video snippets well before release.

    it is a bit because DICE is tying to build up to a nice big announcement. dirt three will be out before bf3 even releases a beta, as for the others, that is the developers choice. I think it would be foolish for dice to release anything that would detract from GDC at this point. that was why the teaser was practically useless. it's just building hype.

    Anyway, I've been lurking around some other forums (EA in particular) and they're not particular pleased with the information about the game so far. In such a case it's my opinion that a in game video is needed to quail negative opinions about the game. :D

    Doubting failure here, by comparison to COD I guess BC2 could be a failure. It didn't sell nearly as well, but it's still a great game, an amazing game, and it sold well enough to warrant another title in the series. Which I doubt will outsellf COD once again, especially since COD sells the most on 360, and this is targeted for PC, but it should still sell enough to keep it going.

    People are already forgetting CoD:BO and the next installment of CoD will be worse as its being developed by an accountant and what IW didn't take with them. BF3 is poised to take back the crown. It really is in DICE's ball court. I hope they make use of the timing.

    The next installment of CoD is being developed by 3 different developers.

    It's going to be awesome. (To watch it go down in flames)

    BO was bad ... I played it for like 3 hours and gave up on it.

    BC2 .. I still love the game.
    BF2 .. Still love it, but it is just old - I need my eye candy lol.

    BF3 ... should have everything daddy needs for a long time to come :)

    Everything after COD4 has been a complete waste of time.

    I motion to stricken COD talk from the BF3 clubhouse henceforth.

    Pfft black ops. I downloaded MW2 just to be tracked as another pirated copy. black ops wasn't/isn't even worth the bandwidth.

    It's not about how bad or good they are, for console players, they are rooted in. Battlefield has always had the best PC experience. COD4 landed on consoles and gave people a taste of something far different from Halo, BC1 didn't promote enough to get the word out there. And now many MW titles later, people buy them just to buy them. I know guys at work that have never gamed on PC, but they are proud about how many times they have prestiged in all the COD titles on their 360's. They wait in like at midnight each time one comes out, take days off work when they first release. And when I tell them o try Battlefield, all they say is, "it has vehicles, I don't like that" without ever trying it. I got 2 people to try, and they havent turned back to COD, they tell the other guys they don't get it, and that theres things in BF that happen that can't ever happen in COD, things that make it much more fun, like somehow destroying a enemy chopper with landmines, or loading up a jetski with C4 and jumping it at a Bradley.

    But those COD players, they won't ever get it, because they won't try it, and they will march into Gamestop and take a bite right off the spoon that Activision feeds them, every single time.

    It's sad that no one here seems to have played 1942, Desert Combat to this day is my favorite shooter (mod or release title). It was such a good mod, DICE bought out the guys who made it.

    They did buy them out, then they released them. But I'm glad someone knows of their greatness, that mod was amazing and it's my personal opinion that, that mod alone is responsible for BF2 being in the time it is in, rather than being farther back in the past.

    Just joined up with TPU, after lurking for awhile, for this game and clubhouse. Can't wait to see some video. Wish they bring back the commander.

    Please add me to the list, I play BC2 as newbsandwich.

    Thanks Wrigley.

    I've been wondering about Homefront myself. I was thinking about getting it, but I'm pretty sure I'll drop it when BF3 comes out. Let me know how it is H82LUZ73.

    Any thoughts on the best way to get BF3? Pre-order on EA site, Steam, Amazon, Gamestop, or wait for brick and motar?

    Trauma Studios were brought in to DICE to consult on the design of BF2. I credit them for BF2's command structure, and the commo-rose.

    I bought that game when it came out on Xbox. It was alright, they just had no ranking system to speak of, ENORMOUS maps (they made Hardcore in BC2 look like a baby's bedroom), and too many vehicles. It could have been that I sucked though. :p
