This has been post in the BF3 clubhouse already. But who cares, it's good enough to share again lol.
It looks incredible!!
Man this looks great. I absolutely love the direction they went with the audio. I find that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is too cinematic and not enough realistic. It sounds constantly muffled and the smoke everywhere makes the gameplay very... vague? I don't know how to explain it, but whatever it is they fixed it in Battlefield 3.
I hope I can run it at max though, I'd rather not have to crossfire or replace a GPU after buying $1100 worth of processor, memory and motherboard hardware.
It looks like it will actually have a GOOD single player campaign. I literally bought BF2 and BF2142 ONLY for their online play. I played BF2's single player for 30 minutes maybe. I have never, and will never, play the Bad Company games because they're not Battlefield (IMO).
Well that's handy.....because they didn't have a single player campaign anyway
They DO have offline play with bots but not a campaign
Exactly But who cared? The MP on them was AWESOME!!!!
I have to disagree. The audio in BFBC2, especially with war tapes is some of the best I have heard and I'm only using onboard sound but with relatively decent speakers.
Granted though, this trailer is effin awesome and will be THE game to make me upgrade my graphics card and monitor methinks.
I thought that someone might have got to this before I did, but I never look in threads with 1000+ posts in them, and probs many others here dont either.
First shooting with M16 + ACOG it looked like the guns might actually have some recoil, then they showed the SAW + reflex...all I could do was shake my head and laugh. If you're hoping BF3 is going to be anything more than a watered down console port like BC2 don't get your hopes up.
You think it's a console port? I would be really surprised if they didn't make it a PC game console second.
I'm getting tired of games being born on the PC as BRILLIANT titles, and then the consoles take it over and it becomes the worst game ever to hit the shelves. (Call of Duty 4+)
Its been stated that the Frostbite 2.0 engine for PC is DX 10 and 11 only although they list PS3 and XBOX 360 as other platforms http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frostbite_Engine#Frostbite_2.0.
Maybe that means a watered down console version? I'd really like to see a pure PC game supported with patches and such. Especially if they're thinking of going back to BF2's standards.
Ok now I need something more powerful than a 360M
Well it's cross platform for sure and nothing I've seen indicates a higher learning curve or focus on basic game mechanics.
Well its DX10 and DX11 and EA has already stated that the PC version is getting more love than its console siblings. (64 person server and god knows what else)
Prone, Jets, etc
I couldn't imagine trying to fly a jet on a 360 controller.
Back in my Jet Fighter Pilot hey-days on BF2, I was racking up monster scores flying Jets with a PS2 pad (via USB converter).
I fail to see how a control setup could have possibly been improved upon for the flight component of BF2.
Damn! How could I forget about prone? I hate trying to fly anything in the BF games its too difficult. Id need a joystick just for it.
I really wished I could use my 360 controller for them helis in bfbc2 without 3rd party apps.
ahhh, i know.
truthfully though,fot r$20 - pinnacle game profiler is awesome.
I cannot overstate enough how cool that program is.
i can play pc only games,without complicated console-unfriendly UIs , and make them work perfectly with a controller. sims, minecraft, war and blade, total war series, etc - PC only games , working GREAT with a lazy 360 controller
you can program multiple key presses, multi-step operations, switch keys, rapid fire, toggle, etc.
I understand the whole $20 is money, but it is well worth it if you EVER use a controller on your pc. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, recommended.
Thanks for that, I don't suppose it supports the rumble feature as well digi?
Sounds like DICE is stepping up their game.
