    While everyone twists their panties in anticipation of a game actually worth playing. Gamestop silently releases the information everyone is looking for.

    http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?Product_ID=74539

    PC BETA starts Jan 28th and ends Feb 25th.

    :toast:


    Since there are so many BFBC2 threads all pertaining to some other aspect of BFBC2 I think we should consolidate everything from now on... either here or in MailMan's original BC2 thread which is probably on page 6 by now.

    Nice news, sad to see that you don't get in the beta from an in store order though, because I don't have the money to pay the whole amount right now, would be nice if they allowed payments on pre-ordered games online.

    Sadly this game won't be half of what it could be as it will be dumbed down for the knuckle dragging console croud.

    Works great on my machine. There is a new update available (v 1.5) for free from EA which unlocks all expansion packs and weapons, maybe this would help. I have been playing a butt load of this game lately. If you get yours working, let me know, we can squad up.

    With Gamestop the purchase won't be charged until the game ships out. Meaning you can reserve your limited edition copy now, receive a beta key, and if you dont like the game you can still cancel the order before March 2nd.

    I dont know if this has been discussed or not, but I have seen the videoes and there seems to be a lot of yelling going on. I would like to know if this is context based, automated radio screaming, single player style, or if they are user initiated radio commands like CS say.

    Any ideas? I mean an automated, but dynamic radio would be a rather new and personally exciting feature.

    I mean this would blend the intensity of a single player (sorry but MW2) battle with the Multiplayer carnage....

    Your thoughts would be appreciated, just to reassure me that im not a lunatic :)

    No there is a lot of chit chat. Its like a step up from BF2 which had a lot of talking. Just not as dramatic.

    There is a bunch of friendly and enemy chatter and it does help to increase situation awareness since the chatter on the ground is always relevant to whats happening. Knowing when people are reloading is a good example. I do feel that it's a little retarded at times and you will notice your player constantly screaming information that gives up your position all the time. Nothing is more annoying than trying to quietly infiltrate an enemy area, suddenly your teammate gets shot by a sniper and your respond by saying "FUC* WE GOT A MAN DOWN" at max volume.

    This game is all about keeping a retarded pace throughout the whole round (because DICE figures we all have ADD) and the in game dialog definitely helps keep the pace.

    Can't wait for this game to be released, just preordered it even though funds are tight. Hoping to get in on some PC Beta action soon too.

    Not always, I've done quite a few beta's w/o prepurchase. And really the deal at the gamestop link could be a gamespot thing. I prepurchased directly from EA for EA Downloader, I can leave my PC running that day while I go to work, initiate the download and install and be ready to play when I get home after work, at least I hope. I hope to get into the beta, I'm looking very much forward to playing this game.

    Yep, thats the video that played on the PS3 beta, I had it on my digital cam, but the file was too big and I didn't have a program to compress it :/
