  1. OMG, Syndicate was my favourite game when it came out.
    I still have a soft spot for it. I think it was one of the best games of its time.
    I am interested to see what they will come up with this.

    What do you mean who cares? Sometimes it's better to admit being wrong, than make a fool out of yourself.

    The difference between PRE-alpha (note: NOT alpha), and beta is usually overwhelming. The new destruction engine was drastically toned down for the pre-alpha, as Dice said many times in the Battlelog forums.

    Even when the full game ships, destruction won't be mean every single piece of the game will be destructible. And the game does have scripted destruction, but that's only on the macro level. Scripted destruction has existed in all previous BF games, and pretty much every other game, except Red Faction. DICE never claimed otherwise, and you sound upset at the fact that, apparently, only you thought they implied that.

    The combat is definitely not scripted. The only thing scripted--and first in an FPS--is the knife animation when you kill somebody. The first person experience is great, as it feels you have limbs. The recoil has been fine tuned, and it feels incredibly real. Not to mention other mechanics such as the beloved prone, suppressing fire, and the environment lighting which you can use to your advantage.

    And if BF3 wasn't specifically built for the PC, then explain to me why does the console version look so noticeably inferior?

    You seem to be mad at what is, well, a game. So take a deep breath and have a nice day.

    Whatever you say, buddy. I already know who's going to be feeling foolish after paying $60 for an EA game, and it isn't going to be me.

    i think bf3 feels more like a MOH port, but worse. it runs horrible and it won't be fixed for the final release. It will be a huge console port

    I assume this is your way of saying "You're right." Oh, and I won't be paying $60, only fools who don't look hard enough pay such amount. I'm paying exactly $37.89.

    And when temptation kills you, see you on the Battlefield.

    Haha, awesome. Forgot about that weapon. Using it to make a huge mob of followers.
  8. Syndicate and Syndicate wars were very good games, loved them to bits. First person shooter version - interesting - if it recreates the ambiance of the original (i.e. brings back the familiar feeling of the original) then im in fo sho!
  9. I enjoyed playing Syndicate and Syndicate Wars. I hope this is just not another FPS. I really enjoyed the Persuadertron and building up an armed army to take on anything.
