took the week off of work, picked up BF3 at midnight and played for hours. started with some multiplayer, did a little of the campaign, and i can say i am overwhelmed! so very awesome. it plays a lot like BFBC2 but slicker and bigger. it looks amazing, the jets nearly turned my stomach the graphics are so great.

the campaign story hints at a little disenchantment within the military ranks. i thought that was interesting. of course iran is the bad guy.

overall i am extremely impressed and actually worried about how much time this game may suck out of my life. awesome.

any ats members playing BF3 today?

About 20 minutes after i get home from work, install times willing. rush map for the beta was the paris metro, I can do without ever playing that map again the rest of my life.

anyways, you said you played some multiplayer, did you happen to play that metro rush map? If so, did they fix the under the map glitch? If not I won't be buying it until they do.

i did play that map once. i play almost exclusively conquest since BFBC2 and the map was more fun for me in that mode. there are some crazy insane big maps in this game. rush is cool but i really dig the CQ.

not sure how i feel about the merging of the assault and medic classes. i usually play as a medic so maybe i'll just get better guns now.

I am so excited for this! I have been for MONTHS. I've played the hell out of Battlefield 2 (Wake Island 2007) FTW! I am expecting my copy to arrive in the next few hours. When I checked my tracking status on Amazon it was In Transit and about 45 minutes away from me. Can't wait to get to the Battlefield!

I hear ya, I'm glad they setup tiered objectives, but rush just seems to pay people to camp and snipe from bushes, or the aforementioned under the map below the objectives glitch.

i prefer Bf2 style conquest as well, that's when tactics actually count.

i was on the fence about the merged classes up until I started playing. Being able to carry a medkit and even a defibrillator, without gimping yourself as a "medic class" is great. i spent most of the time as a support role gunner laying down ammo packs for everyone (love the XP system that gives you XP for support roles).

The first time I got a "suppression" bonus I was amazed. there's some pretty interesting things going on under the hood for it to actually be able to tell when I suppressed the enemy or just sprayed randomly near them.

I hope my beta unlocks carry over as I've unlocked the mortar but it wasn't available in the Beta, which you don't actually find out until you've unlocked it..... Fail.

I still play BF 1943 on the ps3 on a weekly basis. anyone on PSN feel free to add "phishybongwaters" (might not have the S on the end, don't remember.) so we can dominate and make ATS a presence in BF3

Man it pissed me off. I raged so hard last night.

This is how it goes...

Went to work. On lunch i picked it up at the store. Went back to work. Went to the gym. Got home. Started Install.... (this is when it gets bad)

Pop in the cd, have to install some steam like drm crap. Do so. Make an account. Keeps saying wrong password. I click the lost my password thinking i fat fingered it. After 5 minutes get an email. Type in code. Says account doesn't exist. Finally after about 10 minutes, starts working.

Log in, says i have to download. So i keep screwing around trying to install it from cd. Find out evidently, when the cd is in, it "downloads" from the cd. Its only going at 5mb a second...

2 hours later its finally done. Awesome! Click launch... Webbrowser pops up but no game. Try again, same thing. I finally read the popup. Turns out.... everything needs to be launched from a browser.... What the # is this.

Click the multiplayer tab, tells me a i need to install an addon. Do so. Multiplay tab says something isn't working. Try quick match. Nothing happens. Post in forums, turns out its happening all over. Try Internet Explorer. Will load muliplayer page, but addon won't install. Download IE9. During install, Multiplayer tab starts working in firefox. Join a game with a low ping. Loading.... Finall says i'm joining. Get a popup, need to install latest nvidia drivers.

Download 120sum meg file. Install drivers. Reboot. Join a game finally! Sweet! Can't move. No one in map can move. Leave game. Join another game. OMFG it worked.

So it took from about 6:00pm to 9:30pm just for me to be able to play.

That's bull#.

I unfortunately can't play the game online because of my internet. (which is really the main reason anyone should play an fps.) I just wish these games worked harder on the campaign mode and single player. It's all run and gun action and no creativity apart from the vehicle and support missions. If I had it my way I would mix the strategic effort from the original rainbow six; the squad and cover system from brother in arms; and add a sense of open environment with less "follow here, and press this". These developers know that multiplayer is where the money is at, so it appears single player has died for modern combat games.

Right....i ordered it again as i didnt want to be the only person on the PSN playing bfbc2 lol.

Ive watched some footage on youtube (prooftube) and it looks pretty good, so i took the plunge and re-ordered it last night....roll on the 28th...hopefully i made the right choice and didnt just buy a £40 coaster

honestly, i've not stopped playing since i made the post. well, i ate and slept but that's about it because it's a holiday vacation week for me.

i can't believe anyone would regret buying this game, especially if you liked bfbc2. bf3 is just awesome and probably my favorite game ever.

i hear that maxing out your rank could take years so i imagine i'll be playing bf3 for about that long.

in fact, i'm thinking about canceling my mw3 preorder. i don't think i will want to stop playing bf3.

i'm certainly open to hearing if anyone doesn't like bf3 but i can't find anything to complain about. i have not played any more of the campaign, but the mp is just breathtakingly rad.

I sent some messages to a couple of friends today asking them what they thought about it. I was thinking of picking it up. It looks amazing from what I have seen so far. What do you guys think about the "Back to Karkand" pack? Karkand? Sharqi?

I love the multiplayer, I went through the whole single player story, and not bad! Seems a little too much like Black Ops single player story though. Anyway, if you want to add me, my PSN ID is 'ReMeDee' and put ATS in the subject line, so I know where you seen my name......also I joined the 'Wolfpack Recon' platoon for the PS3, and you can join too. Its a platoon for adult gamers, if you are sick and tired of hearing little bastards screaming into their mics, or playing crappy music to piss off everyone! (If this describes you, please don't join this plattoon!) So game on everyone, I will see you on the war path, my friends!

nice. i will hit you up in a few minutes! my psn is theDeadC but i will put ats in the sub line too. i've been withholding my psn because i have a crap kdr but my spm (which should be more important, no?) is a very respectable 279. besides, kdr is for COD fans anyway, right?

anybody else on the ps3 please add me. like i said, i play conquest pretty much exclusively but i'd love to have some ats friends in my psn world.

i maintain b3 is the best ever, i don't know how MW3 will be able to touch it. i agree it's more fun than mag and is doing what mag was trying to do (although with far less players). also reminds me of what homefront was trying to do. i started with battlefront 2 (the original, not bfbc2, which i also played) and i think the franchise has hit an absolute sweet spot.

side note- i have been playing as assault and engineer exclusively. i love the SCAR with the engineer, but i'm stuck trying to find my gun in the assault class. anybody have any good arguments for the M416? the M16A4 i got as the default assault gun seems every bit as effective.

It is not being released on steam.

And there won't be an XP version.

XP is ending support in 14 or 16, they are trying to phase it out. Really at this point there is no reason to not use 7, except money. I went from being a linux user for 10sum years to use windows 7, yes its that badass. There are really no problems with it i have ever run into, except when i found my PSU wasn't pushing enough power for my new mobo / water cooling.

Really if you don't want to pirate win 7, its best to buy a new laptop / pc because it would be cheaper than buying windows 7 itself.
