I can honestly say that any doubts I had while playing the beta are long gone by now. This game is by far the most fun I've had in a while.

Awaiting the NG Platoon. Someone make it happen.

Now with 100% more Steam! lI Minecraft you say? 63.246.149.6 II XBL: WorseThanMonday II

Wait, so people in the UK can't even play the game until Friday officially starts?

I'll admit though, as soon as I get my PC, Battlefield 3 will probably be one of the first games I get for it. All depends when I can get the money though.

shame because I was looking forward to this quite a bit originally

I'll save my pennies for Uncharted 3.

And why won't you be getting it? Because of the completely unrelated experience in the beta? Or you're broke?

In case you chuckle fucks here on Newgrounds are missing out, http://www.alienwarearena.com/giveaway/b attlefield-3-dog-tag-item-giveaway/

Get your SUPER EXCLUSIVE dog tag from Alienware because it's also worth signing up since they normally have loads of giveaways and shit for games.

Also, game of the year general? It's good to have an actual Battlefield game again after "bad consoles: 1&2"

I don't even know why Metro was a map to begin with since it goes against everything that Battlefield is known for. I mean, it has no vehicles and is WAY smaller than all the other maps. I sigh and shake my head when I get this map online.

If you actually know what battlefield is known for, then you would also recall the infantry only matches. Operation metro caters to this.

Please stop pretending like you know anything about the series beyond the 2nd bad company.

Psh, Alienware. The markup on that stuff is insane. You can get a computer just as powerful for $2000 less elsewhere. I got mine through Cyberpower PC and it's been great.

It doesn't get worse with the first x-pack Back to Karkand either... I hope you guys pre-ordered, 'cause it's gonna be worth it! Actually, the xpack will be worth it even ifyou have to buy it separatley. :) But for now there are a bunch of really fucking awesome maps to play... And I still haven't base-jumped!!!!!! :o

Bottom line... this game is orgasmic.

Been mostly playing support and engineer, and the action is fantastic, fun, and frantic. Honestly, it feels like a hybrid of BF2 and BC2. The maps are pretty good as well, and I've seen packs of people working great together even when they're not in the same squad.

The only thing I wasn't too attached to was flying jets. The fact they can't drop bombs like they could in BF2 seems to have killed a lot of their effectiveness, and they're really just there for fun and don't really make that significant of an impact on the game.

A problem I had with BF:BC2 was that skilled pilots could fly attack helicopters for most of the match, people on the ground unable to shoot them down with rocket launchers and they'd end up dominating the battlefield from the sky.

Are their more anti-air options in BF3 compared other entries in the series? I'd like that.

BF2 had Stinger launchers as defense stations, here, when you select Engineer, you choose between letting your launcher be an anti-tank or an anti-air launcher. You start with the anti-tank launcher only, but you earn the anti-air launcher pretty quickly.

They should seriously think of changing to that. BC2 was a failure for AA and this game its a near death trap to get in an aerial vehicle in BF3 because one hit from the numerous stingers the other team is using and you're going down. BF2 had a good formula and on the official feedback thread i've made that known.

Got the game today. Got the stinger, fired it at a fighter jet, fighter jet fires distraction flares, stinger misses. Fuck.

But hey. Played about one hours worth of multiplayer and loving it.
