    Post  Joey Wed Sep 28, 2011 3:43 am

    So the beta for battlefield 3 just started for those who preordered on origin and man is it looking good. Little buggy and missing some things but I cannot wait for the full version now. Wondering if anyone else is planning on picking this up because I plan to sink a lot of my life into the multiplayer :p

    I wonder how close the console versions will look to the PC one:
    Battlefield 3 Bf3sm10
    It runs great too, I thought I would need to upgrade again just to run it at full. M left monitor is in the shop so I don't know how it will run over the 3 monitors but from how the beta is running so far I expect it to run great too.

    Oh and also this isn't an invitation to talk about call of duty being better/worse. Consider that a pre-warning. I intend to pick up MW3 all the same as well.

    To elaborate for those who are not in the beta; It has only one map which is a rush map too (boo!), no vehicals and a lot of the weapons aren't available to get. Big changes from BC2 is the ability to 'free run' over terrain (and you can see your own feet when you jump over them, so awesome), individual weapon add on unlocks (a lot like CoD), guns 'feel' a bit more like real guns and in that a bit less accurate, but powerful all the same, bloom effects when you go from a dark to a light area, the ability to go prone and crawl and also suppression when bullets are hitting near you (which is taken from an old battlefield2 realism mod and is awesome). All in all it has made me even more eager for the full version which will be out in a month...right when my assignments are due -_-

    Sitting on the fence is a win/win, isn't it Joey?

    Console's performance would be nowhere near the level of a bunch of high-spec PCs playing, however, it does have the advantage of uniform performance over the majority of units.

    It's nice to see that they've stepped up the franchise yet again.

    Yes I had seen that, very cool. The show will also have freddie wong and brendon in it. Might actually have to watch it :p

    I wonder how you crouch, throw grenades and what not. Maybe hooking it is hooked up to a kinect too, that would be epic.

    I've had around 4 text messages from EB Games today, the first 3 said available from midnight. Now i just had another text, and they arent doing a midnight launch and saying its available now.

    Anyone else had this happen?

    Anyway i'll play Gears for one more night and pick it up tomorrow....or will i. Decisions, decisions.

    I VPN'ed into korea to unlock my preload early. Been playing all night and day...so epic XD

    Finished the campaign, it isn't long but I did enjoy it. It ended when it outstood its welcome. AI isn't fantastic, story is cliche but damn the graphics just blew me away so much I was totally immersed. Anyways you don't get battlefield for its campaign. So now it is onto leveling up on multi!

    FOR ALL THOOSE THAT WANT TO PLAY BEFORE MID NIGHT.

    You need to activate using a proxy from a country that has already had a release.

    In windows 7, search proxy, then click 'LAN Settings'

    210.107.100.251:8080
    control panel -> internet settings -> connections -> lan settings
    put it in the proxy, reload origin activate, disable proxy and play

    I couldn't get it to run smoothly on ultra over the three screens, sticking to one for now just because it looks so pretty, but will prolly bump it down one. Running on two 570's. What cards/performance were you getting?

    The GPU's shipped as 6950's (2Gb) but I modified the onboard bios to unlock the extra shaders.

    So for comparison I am running HD6970's (2Gb) in CrossFireX with rock solid overclocks of;

    950Mhz GPU
    1370Mhz RAM
    1.175 Volts (Core)

    Load Temp = 70 Degrees

    Well I had to bump down a couple things so it doesn't look AS good but it is pretty close. However I am getting a couple other issues with tri-screen, being that I canno't see the marker over friendlies heads and the sun is HUGE when I look at it, It takes up a whole screen O.o

    Seems to be a common problem linky , might stick to single monitor until then as it is all about the score :p

    Heh yeah I got stuck in the campaign because the prompt to pick up a weapon wasn't appearing and I thought it was 'e' not 'r' (like BC2). There should be an official or unofficial fix soon I rekon. At least the game has somewhat decent support off the bat, unlike another popular shooter franchise which requires a hack.

    So whats everyones impressions with BF3?

    Well here's mine.

    Graphics are insane.
    Playing on hard is well...hard! Harder than COD? Yeah i believe so.
    Guns feel a lot more real, recoil, etc.

    I havent played multiplayer yet, just campaign.
    Jumping in the fighter jet was just epic.

    The only thing i dont like is when you throw a grenade it glows, to me it just weird, but then again kind of makes sense when your fightning in the dark, but then again its not realistic.

    Thats my only dislike.

    For realism it craps all over COD, and i've always been a huge COD player.
    Will be interesting to see how MW3 is. But a great game, and very, VERY impressed.

    I have finished the campaign which I loved, I wouldn't write home about it, but it was great and it didn't out stand its welcome.

    As for multiplayer, man, I can see many many hours lost to this game. It is good to play alone, but you get 2-3 friends in a squad and you are invincible. It is hard, but it is also very real, this is no frag fest you have to think and not act on ADD impulses.

    I have blown the dust off my joystick just to fly helicopters with, so epic.

    Really it is everything bad company 2 was taken to the next level.

    The glowing grenade is basically the grenade danger indicator, I quite like it because if it wasn't there I would have no idea where the thing went. I wonder if it will be turned off for hardcore mode.

    They have fixed everything I was annoyed about in the beta so I am super happy. Uh, not much more to it, just get in and play, if it isn't your thing then go play something else. But really I am happy sinking 100s of hours in to this because it is just that damn good.

    As a side note, though I have mentioned it before, I do not want to see this thread turning into a debate between CoD and BF, not that anything has happened now, but it only takes one person.

    Couldn't agree with you more boosted6!

    I'm also coming back from a 3-4 year hiatus from pc gaming, instead playing the COD series on xbox live with my mates as thats what the majority played.

    My adventures with PC gaming prior to this have only really been counterstrike 1.3 to 1.6 and a short fad with BF-1942 when it came out.

    I told myself I was going to grab BF3 on pc and COD on xbox this year but that damm sales chick at EB had me preordering COD on PC before I'd even seen the price of BF3 lol. Moral to the story, both series will leave a gap in your wallet and both will obsorb way too much lesiure time!

    Now back to BF3, holy shit I am so overwhelemed being back on the pc but so excited at the same time. I initally loaded up the game in multiple player and got a hard-on remebering the that you can pull down the command prompt on pc and fiddle with settings. My intial thoughts were 'holy crap how do you identify an enemy/friendly' but then Joey pointed out a glitch with the multiple monitor setups.

    After reverting back to single screen, im amazing how far the graphics have come over the years. Gone are the days of installing CS on my 900Mhz CPU needing a massive 1Gb of HDD. Now graphics cards have 900Mhz cores and the games are 10Gb+

    Great game, anyone joining the OzNerf Platoon I setup lol?

    I have to say this game is pretty damn good, I love the jet mission, it felt as though my gut was turning every time it banked hard and it was so much fun! I'm having a little trouble with ground textures not loading properly on the thunder run mission though, even on medium settings. I've got an ATI radeon HD 5850, 8Gb ram and an i7 so I didn't think I should be having too many issues, but I haven't been a PC gamer since I had counter-strike back in like 2005 so I could be quite wrong.

    But anyway, I applied for the oznerf platoon... though i don't really know what the hell a platoon is either haha

    I really like this game. I had never played battlefield before, mainly CoD, I'm a big Mw2 fan (not the nooby kind, though, haha). But when my brother picked it up I had a go and have really been enjoying it.

    Graphics, being on Xbox, are worse than PC but still pretty damn good! I've been using the second sniper rifle, with ballistics scope, trying to get the bi pod, haha.

    Like I said, this was my first battlefield experience. The guns in this game feel a lot...heavier? And more realistic. It's pretty good, one thing I did notice is that the maps are huge!

    So all in all, I really like this game, it's different and a nice change from CoD, although I'll still be playing that more.
