      Ordered mine through Newegg and it'll be here by Friday, which is perfect because I'm too busy during the week and I'm going to try and meet up with an old roommate and kick back some drinks while we do what we used to all the time, play drunken Battlefield.

      EA def mislead people in the videos.

      PC Graphics are NOTHING like the videos. More like "little upgrade to BC2" but FAR FAR FAR from what videos we seen.

      PS. I'm running 1920x1200 Ultra with everything maxed out (in case you have doubts about my set up).

      Also the web game browser is just stupid.

      Not too happy right now....

      whats your pc set up look like, cards, mb, processor etc. Also, if you have an ATI/AMD card and you've recently updated the drivers you have to manually go back in and increase the settings of the card, for some reason it lowers them to the middle for visuals and performace.

      Looks like it's a major problem for people with the 285 driver:

      280 driver fixes it, but also causes game hanging after a period of time (something I also experienced)

      2500k/2x 460 OC in SLI

      My settings are on Ultra with everything maxed out and still getting 50-60FPS

      Trust me, EA mislead us all with those videos. Graphics will not look no where NEAR what you seen in previews.

      But I'm pretty sure that was a given....knowing EA history.

      Samething my coworker just went through on his Nvidia equipped Alienware, driver updated f~cked up everything he reverted back and everthing is fine. As for my ATI alienware, as I stated above, after updating the drivers it lowered all the presettings, once that was fixed no more issues.

      Anyone have any experience with Killer Xeno Pro? building another desktop just got my MB (evga classified SR-2) wanted to know if it made a notable difference. TIA.

      I played last night for about 2 hours, and enjoyed it quite a bit. The graphics are better than I thought they were going to be (still not better than MW). The thing that sucked was I couldn't send invites to friends to join my game or send messages, but that wasn't the games fault, I think it's my stupid internet carrier.............

      All in all the game plays solid, it does tend to get a bit messy. I hate the fact that hardly anyone uses their headset. I tried warning people and I couldn't because they couldn't hear me. I got frusterated and quit.

      I really need to play with friends, or else it just gets stupid.

      That's disappointing. I wasn't expecting anywhere near PC levels of a console, but I still expect them to be better than any other shooter out there.

      Any PC benchmarks on the final version floating around yet?

      I haven't played COD in a while, but aren't the levels significantly smaller? Would explain why they can get more detail in.

      I've never been a fan of ATI. Their model numbering always confused me and I used to have major problems with their drivers WAY back in the day (Like, 3DFX Voodoo2 days)
      I miss my 3Dfx cards...
      Back then my rig had a Quantum3D Obsidian X24!. It was 2 Voodoo2 cards on one chipset. The card was like 18" long... It was the first single board SLI card

      Battlefield, for me, has never been about the visuals... it was about the gameplay. unfortunately, with the loss of commander mode and a callout menu (Q and T in previous BF games), they've watered down the gameplay.

      There's no spotting / callout menu? Seriously?

      WTF?

      That was one of the most useful parts of the game, both in BF2 and in BF PlayForFree. I would spot the hell out of the enemy, and calling for ammo or a medic with them was easy.

      They have spotting on the 360 version. I was spotting dudes all over the map.

      Got it last night and played one game before I went to sleep and idk the name of the map but we took the first obj and I was standing there looking around was like "where's the next obj?" so next thing I know I see all my team mates jumping off the helipad and base jumping to the next obj. I thought that was epic. Lol

      Yeah it was not worth being this for. That's not to say the game isn't amazing, but at this age no game is worth being exhausted at work for.

      agreed. i think the graphics in BFBC2 are worse than MW2, but i would expect this new release to be the best yet.

      Don't get me wrong fellas, the graphics are nice, I just think they look a little to bright, like a bit on the cartoonish side. MW graphics are more how can I say it, more realistic. But all in all I'm happy with the graphics. Of course I'm talking about Multiplayer, I haven't played campaign yet but I heard the campaign graphics ARE GREAT!!! I'll be playing campaign tonight.

      I agree, graphics are def cartonnish. Certainly not as realistic as videos/previews.

      right, but it's not the callout menu from BF2... so you can't call for a medic unless you're LOOKING at a medic (or support)

      This: http://bf3blog.com/2011/05/bf3-wish-...nd-commo-rose/

      This is the T call out, not the Q call out.
      This is the Q Call Out:


      I guess it's called the Commo Rose.

      and apparently it's gonna be patched in:
      http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/battlefield-3/1210288p1.html
      like, today or tomorrow


      this makes me happy
      but it's missing two BIG ones: Need Medic and Need Ammo
      apparently not gonna be available for Consoles though. Sorry, losers

      haha owned.


      Anyone else disappointed with this game? Personally I liked the huge maps from BC2, but this game just feels like garbage. The graphics look worse than BFBC2, the explosions definitely look worse, and all the sounds are now mediocre. I haven't tried the game with my Turtle Beach X41's but so far I'm really let down by the lack of sound and visual quality on the console version of the game. Also flying the plans is AWFUL.
