BF3 Beta..
show user profile  ScotlandDave
I got a code for BF3 Beta 48hr trial for the xbox 360 - i`m drooling like a puppy while it downloads..

Probably buy the pc version when it comes out but stupidly excited about trying it out.

Just thought i`d share :)

Wish I had a PC at home that was up to the task. I bought and never played BF2 because it sucks on my laptop (that's how crap it is).

Definitely need a new PC at home.

I love Battlefield games, but haven't had much time to play them since BF1942, which was awesome.

EDIT: Do you have to have "Origin" installed to play new EA games? I've got one constantly updating stuff games thingy already with Steam. I don't really want another one, especially after reading the TOS of Origin. Hmmm.

EDIT2: I'm guessing it's not on Steam. Shame.

Nik, its so easy : push your pc of the desk (make sure it makes a hard landing)

There, now you actually DO need a new pc :)

Ha ha ha! I've been tempted. The screen and keyboard have stopped working, half the USB ports have died. It doesn't always turn on, and the battery only lasts 15 minutes. It's a dual-core poo-poo with ATI on-board graphics. Woot.

I got it through email from EA as i`d bought the MedalOfHonor LimitedEdition - thought it was cos i`d got vip codes with BF2..

Kids homework finished shortly, coffee at the ready then i`m going in :)

I love the Battlefield series. I even worked on a mod for Battlefield 1942 called "Operation Anubis" while I was in school. Many of my classmates are now working for game companies.

After playing the Alpha and now the Beta, I have now canceled my pre-order xD
Even on the lowest graphics settings it runs only 20-30fps.
I will wait until I upgrade next year :P

I suspect my gfx card is too shit so I'll probably give it a pass even though i worked on it.
Oh and since my Dice contract ran out, I'm available for work, spread the word! ;]

Well it`s certainly a different game from bc1+2, visually more so. Not sure if i think it`s a step forward tbh, although i`ve only played the city/urban map which is not usual battlefield territory. The hud overlays seem huge and take up too much space ( poss just as its beta ), it`s sometimes difficult to mark out friendly`s as the green player tags seem weirdly offset from the players, and the characters don`t look quite as nice imo.. The engine/graphics seem more glitchy than before, less transparent ( could be as a result of downscaling from pc-based development to console ). The menu systems etc seem a bit crass, and the use of deliberate visual glitching/signal-loss type effects to me seems way overdone..

Pretty hasty overview though, as i didn`t play for too long, and that being said i didn`t much like the bc2 demo when i played it either :)

Girish, it's probably coming up for it's third or fourth birthday now. I really need to save up for a new one. I've got games I bought that I've never been able to play on it (and it's pretty useless for any serious Max work).

Just played some more :) It`s got a ton of bugs, things like dead bodies slowly sliding across the ground, some menu items not responding first time ( have to press two or three times ), `accept revive` option not disappearing after respawn, `hold b to arm` not disappearing after getting killed at objective and respawning, putting bullets into an enemy only to get shot/killed and their health shows up as 100%, after game sometimes shows game duration as 00:00.. A ton of things that to me shouldn`t have made it thru to public beta..

Good fun though :)

I would say thats quite normal. I've played all battlefield games except 2142, and every single BF game was buggy when first released. It usually takes a couple of months before everything is silky smooth.
