    lol black ops imitates TF2.

    AT FIRST I WAS SERIOUS...

    but then...

    RABBIT HAT AND FISH IN PAPER WOOO
  2. this is sad. i love dice and bbc 2 a ton, but if your going to put 24 players on a map designed for 64, you're pretty retarded. Don't stoop to activision's level, DICE. (the one of making crappy games)
  3. Battlefield 3 will be the best, since ist a mixture of Battlefield 2 MC and Bad Company series... xRaWx will be their!!!

    Definitely excited to play BF3, looks like this game may actually live up to what most PC gamers wanted to see =D. I am a bit disappointed that they just went with four classes though like BF:BC2, I really feel that in a 32v32 scenario you need more specific classes then just attack/support hybrids. And the lack of mod tools is a bit worrisome too, I really hope BF3 doesn't push out constant mappacks/DLC with high prices and no community contribution like we see in most games nowadays. But for the time being I'll take them at their word and hope down the line they will find a way to open up the game to the community.

    From what I've seen yes, like most new releases they are charging PC gamers $10 dollars more because of the "console tax". It's unfortunate that publishers don't think PC gamers realize they are charging us more, but for this game I will forgive them :) .

    You're mixing up BF3 with Battlefield Free4Play which is basically a simplified BF2 for download.

    You're right, bashing console players just because they enjoy that system more then a PC is sad. But then going on to stereotype us as hunched over gamers stressing out because of our K/D ratio in our mothers basement is just as pathetic.

    Thinking that DICE would let console gamers play on huge maps is absurd. I would assume they implement a type of fog of war like they did in BF:BC2 to condense the maps. Something that they possibly will let PC gamers use too who want smaller servers like 48 or 32 player limit.
  5. i'm a console gamer the reason i'm not pc is because 1 don't have money 2 i hear that you need to keep up with the requirements and 3 i have a laptop not a desktop i would like a little more players though at least 30 or 35 40 would be awsome just saying
  6. maybe, but condensing maps doesn't solve anything. i'm not really willing to pay for $60 worth of crap *** half maps. plz, just 48 ppl or something, DICE
  7. okay u would pay 1500 dollars 4 a computer and u only hav to pay about 1 fifth of that for a PS3 or 360. So financially it would be better to get an xbox so u dont have to worry about a game being too much. U PC gamers are lame and need to quit being nerds and having to have the best thing ever. The graphics are just fine on the console.
    U dont need to pay for more parts to play a game.
    And consoles are more socialable so u dont get bored and u always hav someone to talk to.
  8. If they do release the mod tools for Battlefield 3 I don't think it won't be too tough for a lot of the community since most of them like a challenge. Especially talking about the Project Reality team.
  9. Pc sucks I got rid of mine after BF2 cause it was so stupid but BFBC2 on the 360 was the best game I hhave ever played handsdown

    This is simply not the case, first off a gaming PC will not cost you $1500 dollars. You can spend that kind of money but it is not necessary. In today's age almost everyone needs and has a personal computer on which you can do more then just game. They can be used for business, school, personal activities, home theater and anything else you can think of since it truly is an open platform, but one that doesn't require a monthly fee. Also if you find the console to be more sociable, grats. I personally can't find anything better with it in comparison to a PC that doesn't just have basic VoIP but quality third party software and huge communities.

    Oh and if it wasn't for nerds pushing the boundaries, most of what we have today and enjoy wouldn't be here.

    Yes, it is disappointing and I'm not sure why they couldn't even try for at least 32 players. Maybe it really is some technical issue that with so much intense action and physics going on that the hardware can't cope. But I wouldn't worry that somehow the maps will be inferior, they'll likely just be focused in on the main town like Oasis in BF:BC2 on conquest instead of the Rush variety which has four towns. I don't recall console gamers in uproar about that, but I do remember PC gamers feeling that some maps were small in comparison to what they were accustomed too.

    I just want them to optimize it so scales wells on console, and so that PCs will most likely play it at high settings with med specs or something along those lines.
     
  12. no we are not happy at 24 we want more 32 or 48 would be better
  13. I loved BC2. I thought it was on a par with Modern Warfare and beat the crap out of MW2. Regardless, I really enjoyed BC2. It is great that DICE is working this title specifically for the PC. I wish that were true of the most recent MOH Dice released late 2010. To me that title was a port, or at least it had that low quality feel to it that reminded me of a port job. We all knew these console hacks would end up ruining gaming and they just about have done so. Bravo Dice for your efforts!
  14. P.C.'s are DA BOMB!!!!
