  • 1.34GB Battlefield 4 Winter Patch rolls out

    @The_shlaaaag_returns

    A bullet to the head is life ending: in most cases (there are cases where a soldier gets hit by a sniper round in the back of the head, loses 40% of brain mass and comes to TV talking about marijuana benefits :P)

    anyway, I DO agree with you: back in my days a headshot was enough... not headshots!

    I know what you mean... but if you nail your aiming right to the head you just need a couple of bullets :P There is always hardcore mode to play with!

    After 3 weeks resting from Battlefield4 (focusing on Kyrat :)) I returned to the wonderfull large scale online shooter that today it proves to be... The game still feels fresh (after 750 hours), with a lot to discover and master. Iīve been having a great time in Naval Strike and Last Stand maps.

    Unfortunately some oficial sources insist to mention "Battlefield 4 suffered a terrible launch, with a number of high-profile technical issues preventing many from playing". The hype effect is gone and that prevents many from playing as well. Too bad it doesnīt prevent the "too little too late" posts like the one below.

    Genuine BF players are today enjoying the best shooter out there. Hyped child have moved on to another blinking light...

    Iīm very happy that developers are supporting the game making improvments in the core and not just cosmetic and interacting with the comunity. Hardline will have a hardtime xD

  • DICE wants Battlefield 4 players to help build a new map

  • Agente_Silva 20/02/2015

    @mega-gazz

    Because it was the first BF to consoles I guess... When BF3 came along many didnīt like bigger map sizes - that is clearly a statment from BFBC players not knowing how BF1942 DC and BF2 rolled for years.

    Battlefield was always a more paced and strategic game than any. And that is why it has a solid fanbase who wish BF titles last more than 2 years before getting renewed. We will see that happening with BF4 guys... :)

    It surely had a rough start but that is, in my perspective, normal when you develop something truly new.

    If DICE is adressing netcode again (it could also raise the bar on tickrate) we should all rejoice :)

    @Defecationqueen

    BF3 was clearly out to bait BF and CoD players. Still, DLCīs like Back to Karkand and Armored Kill are worth mentioning for map size.

    In BF4 there are more big maps than small maps even in vanilla. If you have Premium you must admit BF4 has clearly steered away from that CoD trend and got back to what BF is really great (I should name a few maps - Paracel Storm; Golmud; Altai Range; Dragon Pass; Silk Road; Operation Mortar; Hammerhead; Karelia...).

    edit: people love to hate - still mentioning the bugged launch, even when 2 years have passed. I wonder how many CoDīs were made during BF4 existence. Itīs really amazing how casual players talk about something they do not bother to try on the long term - if gaming is turning into a shallow mass production industry is exactly because of you (not you DefQueen but "those"), and you ("those") should be shoved with crappy DLCs while your all hyped and excited...

    In my opinion PS3 version IS the rip off. If you havenīt found a reason to buy GTA5 on "next-gen" platform youīll surely be happy playing PS3 games for long time :P

    This article is clearly haunted by peasants (sorry, but the neg spamming on FMV and Ironsoldier is clearly peasant ranting) desperatly trying to find a good reason why GTA5 is okish in stone age gen consoles. By todayīs standardīs IT IS NOT OK to play GTA5 in PS3/XB360 (and thatīs why the term "peasants" exist. Peasants will eat bread for their whole life and be happy with it)... it is a fact.

    To someone who claimed "Carpe diem" Iīll say I usually enjoy everyday gaming with todayīs technology, not stone age technology and that is why I stand for the "rather wait 2 years to play it in itīs full glory".

    If it was for peasants expectations we would still be stuck with Pentium processors... dream higher or stfu.

  • Battlefield Hardline is more than just a palette swap

  • Agente_Silva 04/02/2015

    @parkboyer

    It seems players expectations over a game (in this case BF4) have dramatically decreased. When you mention weeks/months of gameplay lost in unlock achievements, in my point of view, is not an issue but a natural reaction to the "bling" in these "next-gen" titles. Being an old school BF player (since 1942 DC modded) I find some assigments or weapon unlocks ok even if it means to "step away" from team play (or PTFO) from time to time, but Iīm not doing it on the long term because matches become too frustrating (like capīing a flag and, as you walk away itīs blinking and everyone is just mental to the next pew pew moment - it is then when you realize your team is not acting like one).

    So, long story short, I think it is ok to spend a few weeks unlocking stuff but after that you get back to teamplay since Battlefield is about years of play not months.

    edit: Hardline is definetley a waste and calling it Battlefield is almost offensive :P mentioning CoD when the discussion is about Battlefield is pointless considering theyīre not slightly comparable (pick Titanfall for that). CoD unlocks are straighforward and short because CoD itself is developed to be like that - chew and spit.

    If you stood for Battlefield4 for the last year you know there has been a great effort to give fans (old school and new comers) a great experience in both perspectives (close quarters and openfield; infantry and veihcles warfare). From every DLC you notice a map/flag layout improvment and even a graphic improvement (vanilla maps-BF2/BF3 maps; Naval Strike, etc...). Just look at Hangar 21 or Giants of Karelia and you imediattly realize how big maps were taken into BF4 (just like BF2).

    The only "if" (wich could be really damaging to competitive gameplay) is the tickrate thing were it is proven to be a bit under acceptable yet (tradekills and "behind corner" kills still happen).

    Still, Battlefield4 is one of itīs kind with no comparison to anything out there...

    ... and for that I donīt see any reason to go for cops/robbers!

  • Agente_Silva 03/02/2015

    @George-Roper

    It really is a mod... a blunt one! Cut down in size and vehicles. It is more of a large CoD than Battlefield. There is nothing in Hardline that takes me away from the REAL Battlefield (everything you need is in BF4, from Metro to Kharelia or Hammerhead, from Gulf of Oman to Operation Mortar).

    Well, if youīre into an interactive movie on a rainy Sunday... still itīs a pure "rail shooter". To me it has ONE memorable moment and thatīs it :P maybe not so frantic action, a bit more paced but itīs Cow of Duty. Multiplayer is WEAK but this is a biased opinion since Iīm all Battlefield :)

  • DICE vows: Final Stand is not the end for Battlefield 4

  • Agente_Silva 11/12/2014

    @xmdfmk7x

    Halleluia brother... As a BF veteran (since 1942, modded as Desert Combat - wich propelled the BF2 developing) I make your words mine as well.

    BF3 was a let down for most PC players because of the crumpling flag placing despite some maps allowed for a wider gameplay (thinking of Operation Firestorm, Caspian Border, Damavand Peak).

    BF4 was the return to true Battlefield gameplay and this Final Stand expansion is a great proof of that :)

  • Get 11.5 teraflops of PC graphics power for under Ģ500

  • Agente_Silva 05/12/2014

    @pjbliverpool

    I wonder how many developers will release games at 4K though... We all know where the money is and 4K gaming might die on the road.

    Consoles are lighyears away from anything similar to 4K so donīt hold you cards for too long.

    Since I started using Eyfinity (5760*1080) I realized not many games are 3 screen ready (relying on the wonders done by Hayden with his Flawless Widescreen software).

    With Farcry 4 we experienced the lack of Crossfire/SLI profile and game stuttering like hell (with no solution on the horizon) - all things considered, sadly, I donīt see a happy future for high end gaming rigs.

    More of the same on new graphic engine has always worked for me, specially on games that nail it on first release. You donīt see anyone complaining about GTA series :)

    Shadow of Mordor seems a bit more "copy/paste" when it comes to environment setting, only changing the colour palette - I finished Mordor and loved the game, donīt get me wrong. Batman seems more close and faithfull to comic books, with more elements to the environment and care for detail.

    The easter eggs in this game (from vanilla to this last DLC) are clearly representative of what kind of game and community turned product Battlefield is...

    Why DICE would bother introducing secret locations or dinossaur audio or funny things like the PvZ pea shooter in Dawnbraker or the Phantom programs.

    edit: Oh, and your suggestion would be really usefull in EG reviews. We would see sometinhg like Final Stand review score: EG = 7/10; Community = 9/10

    7/10 is a score from someone who didnīt even bother to play this expansion. From someone who doesnīt know what Battlefield is all about, because this final release is the pinnacle of the next-gen BF... Itīs how itīs meant to be - big open maps, outstanding flag layout, a wonderfull mix of outdoor infantry/veihcle encounters and huge indoor scenarios (many of those would sustain several years of CoD games and expansions).

    Final Stand is what makes me say "I feel sorry for CoD fans". Battlefield is today a huuuuuuge value for money. Sure it started with the wrong foot but hell now it is the BEST online shooter around.

    We deserved this :)

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - PC performance done right?

  • Agente_Silva 14/11/2014

    Iīm playing this with a 4770K, 16GB RAM, SSD and dual R9280X (actually itīs a 7970 ghz edition plus a 280X :)) and three display (5760*1080). I set graphics all Extra, SMAA2x and HBAO+, no supersampling.

    I was expecting to lower settings because usually at such resolution Iīm not able to max most recent games. To my surprise game is butter smooth, but along the game I noticed that graphics are not "nex-gen" everywhere. I mean, character modelling is excellent, physics seem quite good but terrain and environmental objects are awfull for todayīs standards... really... itīs almost like, a good game from 2007/2008 - maybe Half Life 2 or F.E.A.R.

    My PC doesnīt even throttle up like in BF4 or Simcity - yes, Simcity is a hardware demanding biatch :P

    So, I got triple screens working (using Widescreen Fixer - not Flawlees Widescreen). Youīll need to update game to ver.1.3 first or else game will crash while launching with Widescreen Fixer on.

    Game seems... last week. Really, I set my graphics all Extra, with HBAO+, SMAA2x (without supersampling) expecting it to stutter while playing but no... game goes butter smooth, but graphics are not amazing, not even close. Battlefield 4 has waaaay better graphics.

    I donīt know if Iīll take this game to the end (specially when Farcry 4 is at the door).

    No triple screen native support!

    For those who care, Haydenīs website and server were attacked (from Flawless Widescree) - 8th November WSGF post. Heīs been forced to shift all data to other server so getting it back online will take a while.

    To note that a so-called PC developed game from one of the biggest AAA publisher does not support 3 screen (5760*1080) properly.
