I think its straightened out Idaho.
Quick question for you BF3 experts- is BF3 worth playing strictly for single player? I have no interest in multiplayer whatsoever (I prefer the competing franchise- on console, no less ), but what I saw in the previews made the campaign look interesting.
I like the single player I am about halfway right now just kinda playing it to cool down after work.
Well, I been planning to do weapon reviews for a while, and finally kicked myself in the ass and got one out. Let me know what you guys think. Hopefully will put out more soon.
(enjoy my monotone voice!)
Had to make a few small changes, so that review is going down, new one will be uploaded here in about 2 minutes)
I think you nailed it. I love that gun Kind of like that map on TDM too !
Did someone mess the Google gun doc again or is it still like this from the last time?
Good times with Crazy tonight.
2 man domination went from 800 ticket deficit the round before to carrying are team to victory, but thats not the best part we STARTED ON THE OTHER TEAM, the ADMIN moved us to the other side to "Balance the Game" in which case we just utterly destoryed our former team like no ones business.
Damn, you guys tore it up!
Its short on Hard it tooked about 8 hours to complete. If you can get the game cheap like 10-15 euros than its worth it IMO, also there are six 2 players co-op missions.
PS: i always wonder why the they dont launch the singleplayer part separately there are people that dont play MP ever.
Looks like you guys had a great night, as I mentioned in the dayz thread, my wife had came home sick last night and my intentions were to get her comfortable in bed alseep and continue playing but I ended up falling asleep next to her LOL.
She is probably just sick and tired of eating soft serve.
had a great game with dave today server had a hiccup dumped like 40 ppl server resets and i get no battle report.... i haz a sad cause i was dominating again 24-1 in the first half pissing ppl off with the tank, finally Dave got on our side and it just got ugly quick, i had to have been 30-40 - 7 possibly higher but cant remember that server hiccup tho pissed me off was doing so damn good.
The single player is definitely worth it, but if you think you're awesome once you've nailed it and go for online play, don't be surprised when you sit at the bottom of the log. I haven't even finished the single player because online play is way more interesting, and a lot more fun.
Awesome review. I stopped playing for a few months while my ADSL line was dodgy. When I came back I had to ask what assault rifle was favoured - the M16A3 was mentioned prior to the AK update, so I went on to pwn impressively with that weapon.
I've been using the AEK-971 for ranged encounters (effective stopping power at close range, and semi-decent ranged accuracy), but I find the M5K to be more effective in CQ.
How would you rate the G3A3 against the M5K in CQ, reload times aside because the M5K sucks with reload times?
G3A3 is good, but it fires slow, and reload is kinda long, too. Kinda similar to the L86A2 or L85A2..one of those two, anyway.
The G3 is the 3rd fastest reloading AR in the game, it's not long at all only 2.0 seconds as long as you leave 1 bullet in the clip. If you empty it though, yeah it slows down a good bit. The thing about the G3 is, it's got the 550 rounds per minute, super slow. But they hit hard, in CQ it's a 3 shot kill, compared to a 5 shot kill for the M5K. The G3 is right with the M5K up close, but it's far less forgiving that most other weapons in the game on missed shots. Since the next bullet takes so long to fire, it's only good CQ if you land those bullets. Something like the M5K, you can miss one, because 900 rounds per minute, theres going to be another coming very soon after.
So yes, the G3 is great CQ, but you have to land the shots.
Well I have joined now eventually I will have to get on and play online...
good ^ cause i cant wait for to get in a tank so i can C4 it and blow you up like i have everyone else on TPU cause i love C4
secret for the best explosions = lots and lots of C4 on a tank on a mobile AA on a chopper on a jeep on a atv you name it strap c4 on it or strap it on and ram it in i push the button people go BOOM and all i think is ooooooooo pretty fireworks.
hmmm so I am using teamspeak on my GS3...have to push to talk no autodetect.
Maybe thats a good thing. Most of the time I have spend in TS, I hear Brandon because he has open mic on, and he's away from the computer yelling out the door to his sister.
my (personal) TS3 server has it set so that you cant use voice activated. its PTT or bust.
one person with VA can ruin it for everyone else on the channel, especially once you start getting speaker feedback
Go to the main menu of the app and hit the menu button, then setup then you can set VA. I wouldnt do it though unless you have a pair of head phones you can use.
