Owning is not really cheating.
just spent a about a good 3hrs playing return to karkand....somehow it just doesnt feel quite the same as the old classic. I still like it though. but im running through the city and im kinda feeling lost..... :/
The Karkand pack is fantastic. Total mayhem. Destruction at its best. I have no doubts now that this is the best looking game I ever played. Bye Crysis 1. Got to get used to the maps though.
But I would like to add something. On everything maxed out with my rig - the i5 is at 4.2 - I had stutters and even freezes with 4MSAA on larger maps and many players. I know, 1280 MB VRAM is not enough but on single player it worked like a charm. So I was doing ultra and FXAA - post AA - on high, everything great.
Now get this. I just picked up today another pair of 2GB memory sticks - dirt cheap nowadays so why not? I have now 4x2GB in the machine and magic happened! Load times are way way faster and no more freezes! I cranked up the MSAA and it works no freezes, stutters, just smooth lower FPS here and there. So I would definitely recommend to anybody to increase the RAM, 4GB is not enough for this game, it needs more!
Here is Day 2 of the 12 Days of Chrismyth!
The maps look great and stupid people are already using "its new to us" as an excuse to suck at the game.
Honestly if you have not played BF2 in a long while like me, it will take a little getting use to as the maps have been seriously updated. You can do into a lot of buildings, plenty of new angles to hit targets, but the general layout is the same. In short, if you have EVER played BF2, I will not accept "this is a new map to us" as an excuse why you drove off without me while I was in a 3 on 1 gun fight.
And Origin login server just went down for me.
tell me about it...
WoW, this game rocks on a HD6870 all high settings with 2xMSAA an 4xAF getting at least 60-70fps constantly. Also loving the new maps
How much MSAA can a 6870 handle tho 4x, 8x?
I could have done better if I had orders or backup or maybe just a revive or two. That was asking too much.
And they are already doing maintenance on the game. So if you are trying to log into Origin and having issues, just wait an hour or two.
Hey Highway the 10 guns they give you are those
unlocks or do you get them right off the bat ? There
are a couple I loved in BF2.
There was an Engineer on-board repairing from side seat.
Unless 3 rockets hit directly at the same time, they were torching the shit out of it to stay alive.
See this all the time.
BUT PC's do have some nasty hacks
Yeah I learned and reported that the first few days. Sucks cause I got nice Hyper 2GB sticks.
Origin login server went down for me as well, It kept saying my password was wrong then I changed it now its saying origin servers cannot be reached
They are unlocked threw Assignments. The weapons have certain assignments of-course.
To unlock the FAMAS-
Then its automatically added your assault kit, and the Next assignment for the next assault weapon is unlocked so you can complete it and get the next weapon.
Origin is dead here also. Damn, my son's been playing and now it should have been my turn.
recommendable is 8GB , my opinion after playing on 4GB
LOL yea im on 3GB and it sux!
Seriously, it's a game. Deal with it. People taking this crap too seriously, no wonder TPU's BF3 server is never full.
Reminds me of
TPU server is never full because it is never full. If no one is on it, it does not appear in search results. If we wanted to keep it populated, several of us, say 3 or 4 need to stay on the server even when they are not playing. That is the only way it will get full.
One night we had at least 12 people in TS and could have started the server up, but no one cared.
And I do take my gaming seriously because it is suppose to be fun and entertaining. I don't mind losing as long as we put up a fight. We tard babies are running around tking and not fighting, I don't understand why they are playing. Why would you go out of your way to get in a round of BF3 if you are not going to play the fucking game.
Ah, I thought you were just demeaning people with lesser skill. I understand, I have no idea why these type of players you describe even exist. All I know is, if I see several people standing around the base, I leave the server.
I've been back into BF3 more in the last week anyway and with these new maps Skyrim will definitely be taking a back seat as opposed to the other way around.
I am addicted to Bf3.
Piece of crap Origin!
The bad thing is, people who are not reading about what's going on will start changing passwords, accounts and so on. A total mess.
Yeah. But be honest. When you release a highly anticipated game and you let people download/install software that says Beta you know are f-ing with those people.The battlelog is ok but i would rather have the old fashioned way.
