      I'm curious...

      ...did the Hilux still start?

      I didn't check, i didn't want to see the mess inside

      The hilux was doing 60-70 mph and the Sabot went right through it

      This is a Sabot round:


      It is basically a depleted uranium dart with no explosives, iirc. I think it would be cool to have a few ammunition types available to Tanks. HE for buildings, soft targets, etc. Sabot for tank vs tank. It could add a bit of strategy to the tank aspect of the game.

      Ever since BFBC1 I was sold on this game. I loved BFBC2 and havent played the Vietnam yet. But it looked good. I have never been big into COD, I definitely will be buying the BFBC3!

      I'm mostly talking about blowing up buildings with the main gun while the infantry is literally standing against the wall and not even receiving any damage in the game. If a he round goes off in a building, you don't want to be within 50 meters of it from all the debris and crap flying around.

      But what the heck, i only did 5 1/2 years in the military, i'm sure some geek with a computer knows more about it than me
      Going to have to agree with you on this.

      Nothing irked me more than rolling down the road in a tank, blasting the **** out of a building and the enemy guys just running around in front of me like nothing was happening.

      However, given a decent player in the gunner seat of a tank, you could pretty much wreck havoc. This was obviously the idea and was done to generate teamwork.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      Can't imagine. Was just making a reference to Top Gear.

      Do you still play Arma 2? Or did I confuse you with someone else?

      If you do we should play some time. The other night I defeated another player in a Cobra helicopter using a sabot round.

      i played Arma 2 for a few minutes but the aircraft controls were so whack i couldn't get into it. It just pissed me off instead of being fun. Also the AI was killing me from like 1-2 km away with ak-47's Seemed a little unrealistic to me

      Yeah the AK snipers sucked. Careful adjustments to the game's settings helps that problem, and a very small and popular addon removes it entirely.

      If you ever want to give it a second go (there's been a lot of gameplay and visual enhancements lately building on last summer's expansion) PM me and I'll try and help.

      Can you finally go prone in a BF game again? At least they might get that right.

      I think aside from Halo 2, BF3 is the most anticipated game in my life!

      But BO didn't look new at all, it looked the same as MW & MW2. Just being able to see legs when you jump out of a vent rather than a floating gun falling to the ground adds so much to the game imo. You're no longer a floating arm with a weapon, you're a person.

      PC graphics with DX11 will be awesome. Everything else will be like any other game out today due to current hardware limitations on consoles.

      Agreed, PC version graphics will dominate between the different versions of this game -- but unless DICE steps up their game on consoles, this game won't be as (graphically) impressive as other games on consoles.

      BC2 on consoles didn't look anywhere near as impressive as all the screenshots/videos they released prior to lauch. It's clear that the media they released was the PC version -- yet DICE went as far as to brag that they could compete with Uncharted 2's graphics. That's comparing apples to oranges as far as I'm concerned. While BC2 didn't look bad on consoles, it certainly couldn't come close to touching what GG has done with the Killzone games or ND has done with Uncharted.

      PC is where it's at. At least for BFBC2, the PC has dedicated servers that allow more players on a map. Love that game, it just takes so much playing time to level up!

      I own so many flawed shooters at this point just sitting on shelves because they only last a year or so. I might just switch back to Counter:strike

      I threw in Team Fortress 2 and played that for a bit the other day.

      I'd still be playing MW2, but my disc got screwed up and since I've already purchased the game twice, I'm not buying it again until I can get it cheap. It's holding its price really well.

      I love BF2. I enjoyed BC1. I didn't care for BC2. Really hoping that this game captures a BF2/BC1 feel.
