To be honest, that gameplay hasn't really got me excited. It doesn't look like anything really new.

It's just singleplayer, and never even gave an example of destruction.

Multiplayer is what really matters in a Battlefield game. That is where the innovation is really going to shine.

I can't wait to get my hands on a jet and I wonder how they will work. It could be awesome if they make the jets be able to drop bombs and not be ridiculously overpowered.

The next gameplay video is due out on the 16th.

This one will demonstrate destruction.

Still no multiplayer videos, or even multiplayer screenshots have been released.

While the recoil isn't realistic... it's definitely a lot more than any modern shooter, and it certainly looks nice.

Can't wait for the next video.

Actually I take that back, ArmA II as more, being a Military Simulator and all. But for mainstream shooters, BF3 has more than any others I've seen.

I'm going crazy waiting for this game, and I think some more videos could help the waiting process.

DICE has already scheduled the 15th as the next gameplay video release. This time, with destruction.

Leaked Footage from a handheld camera.

It has a good 3 minutes of single player, an earthquake with falling buildings, and about one second of tank and jet gameplay.

Watch it before it gets taken off youtube.

It's....it's beautiful. I downloaded the video so that there's another copy to share in case that very thing happens. Now I can't wait for the prepared release.

Well the DICE general manager has officially called out COD.

"Our competitors are getting lazy," he said. "They're using the same engine, the same recipe for building a game. At some point you need to take that leap. I haven't seen them take that leap since a long time ago.

"We are doing that now. They had better watch out. We are coming for them."

The flame wars will devour this nation.

im pretty sure the reason is is that battlfield actually takes skill to play which CoD players lack.

While Battlefield can still be played with twitchy fingers, the winning team is always the one that works together and uses tactics. Battlefield is establishing itself as a military shooter, while Call of Duty is an arcade like shooter with military skins.

So in CoD, even on Team based modes you can pretty much run around and do your own thing. BF however asks that you work towards a greater whole. You get rewarded for resupplying team mates, or healing someone, or even spotting the enemy for someone else to snipe.

Now I enjoyed Battlefield more than Call of Duty, but I can still go and enjoy some mindless lone wolf running and gunning offered by CoD. In Battlefield though I need to start thinking, maneuvering with team mates, providing cover fire...

That's my opinion on why more Call of Duty fans don't enjoy Battlefield.

I also think they should put caps on how many players can play certain classes, for example the Sniper. That's just my opinion though.

Never played Battlefield 2? They counter it's ability to drop bombs by both sides having a fighter and a fighter-bomber, and the fighter bomber is two-person so it's hard to get a good team in there. The controls aren't easy, and dropping bombs precisely is pretty tough. Then there are lots of AA placements and AA-tanks around the capture points to counter.

Sniping in BF:BC2 was never a specialty of mine. Always was a bit more of the aggressive style, get in your face with an XM8 kind of thing.

Either way, I'm looking forward to this game, may even pre-order for PS3 :D

I was never big on sniping either. It was too hard when you have bullet drop, but you aren't available to any kind of formula to use, and the mildots seemed practically useless, as bullet drop rarely exceeds one mildot.

Either way, I'm looking forward to this game, may even pre-order for PS3 :D

I definitely want to pre-order it too.

After seeing the IGN dissection of the video, I might actually play the single player of BF3. The game seems to be intermixing the tactic-based combat of Rainbow 6 while incorporating the fast-paced nature of CoD. To me, this balance could very well spell the end of CoD being the #1 FPS.

The customization of the weapons, the squad centered combat, and the updated Frostbite Engine make this game a must-have for me.

DICE is giving awards for the people who find funny and interesting ways to tell DICE what they want to see in BF3.

Can someone say FLASH!?!?!?!?!?!?

BF:BC2 already had the tactic based combat and high pace FPS. It also had the weapon customs (though, not as flexible as later day COD games) and combat really did involve squads thanks to squad based respawning (you were an idiot if you didn't choose to join a squad, getting spawned 2 mile down the back of the line seriously sucks, but respawning next to your friends kicks ass)

For me, it's all about the Frostbite Engine. I would buy the game without it if it was just a re-hashed BF:BC2 with new maps and better weapon customisation, but the new engine seals the deal. I HAVE to pre-order this game.

OMG! Part of the fault line gameplay trailer! So awesome, 1080p and full volume, awesomeness. Frostbite 2 is looking incredible and the game itself looks mega awesome. I'm feeling the hype and it's good.

I actually thought parts of the game looked better in 320p, like a bit blurred to give it some effect.

1080p was beautiful for the most part though.

So bullets flying past you will have an effect on you?!?!?!

Now you can effectively provide supressive and covering fire.

I can't fucking wait.

I meant both happening, you'd have some players just sitting in corners, while the others would just run around on their own, not caring about their teammates. Plus you can run around/camp, you just camp but change your position every 2-3 minutes.

Bit weird, but meh.

Has anybody noticed the pieces of dirt flying when a character runs? So much detail.
