The new mode that gives Battlefield 3 newcomers a fighting chance

theirongiant

6 years ago

Just as a counterpoint to all the serial whining that goes on, I'll go on record to say BF3 is an amazing game, more so since the DLC has come out. There is something for everyone in the game, be their itch big maps, little maps, vehicles or infantry, we've never had it so good. On a scale of money vs hours spent, it blows anything i've bought out the water.

A conversation with EA's Peter Moore on the thorny issues of DLC, Online Passes and all the rest of it

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP MAKING ME SET UP MY TEAM EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY AN ONLINE MATCH IN FIFA.

I play the same formation and team every time and i've had to set it up over 600 times in the last year. I've got to the point where i have, through trial and error, figured out the optimal solution for setting out my team with the fewest moves possible(38 stick-flicks and 12 button presses).

Please stop making me do this, i'm developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Put in a save option.

Games != Movies

I look forward to the day when game developers realise that no-one is interested in their desire to live out their Scorsese fantasy's

Day Z is the perfect example - it doesn't have a single cut scene or story line but has come closer to that zombie movie feeling than any number of story filled zombie games have.

First Battlefield 3 Aftermath details, concept art revealed

A hefty percentage of BF players just love to have themselves a big old moan. These packs freshen up the game and by the time they are all out we'll have a massive amount of variety and options when it comes to how you want to play BF3. 70 for 2 years and probably about 700 hrs of gameplay by the time BF4 comes out represents 1p per hour, an absolute bargain in anyones' book.

Battlefield 3: How Fan-Run Servers Are Ruining DICE's Game

theirongiant

6 years ago

Dice should definitely be providing a bunch of vanilla servers but on the other points: seeing as PC have always had rented servers for every BF game does that mean it's been fundamentally broken since 1942?
Favourite good servers and avoid ones with admin rules - this isn't rocket science.

35 for BF3, 35 for premium, 12d5h played = 24p per hour. Yeah i'm getting totally ripped off. Imagine paying people for the work they do, they've got unbelievable cheek. I'm not sure what's worse, Dice or Hitler, it's a close run thing.

One thing i was BF3 had appropriated from Battlefront was the Galactic Conquest mode, it was a simple way to turn a bunch of unrelated, one-off battles into a far more epic rolling war.

Game of the Week: Battlefield 3 Multiplayer

theirongiant

7 years ago

EA do seems to be improving, you couldn't get a game of 1943 for 3 days, BC2 for 2 days, at least with BF3 you could get a game here and there on launch. I reckon by the time we see BF4/BC3 EA might have cottoned on the the fact that being cheap bastards and not having enough servers on day 0 is only hurting their games.
