Battlefield 3 Catch-All

PS: That logo WipEout made is awesome.

Im actually editing it this morning with Wipeouts suit guy so he isn't covering gamers with jobs.

Had a blast playing last night as an Engineer, I'm not *cough* feeling well *cough* so I'll be home playing all day. Hit me up with an invite if you guys need an extra hand.

The 360 platoon is up, it is Gamers with Jobs 360. And boy do the emblem creators suck for the consoles. I'm going to bed...

Sorry for the sudden departure last night. I had a crash and decided to go to bed!

That's not ranalin's. It's the other server.

Three more days for me to wait here in the UK. Here's hoping Amazon and Royal Mail have got their act together!

Where did the other server come from?

Dang it...I didn't want to buy this game, but you guys are really forcing my hand...

This game is fantastic looking and runs great. I did not notice any of the beta issues (so far). What voice comms are we going to be using? It would be nice to have separate squad chat channels. Is that something supported by the game?

We were in Vent last night. But the game also has VOIP I haven't tried form Battlelog itself if you're partied up there.

They went even worse on PC than BFBC2 in VOIP support. I hope they improve that, and it just got cut due to time initially.

DOOOooo it!

Think I'll hop on and get a round before one. One of those games.

Here is the edited version of the BF3 GWJ splash. Can you update it to this Certis?

Thanks again to Wipeout for sending me the suit dude to add in. It's a nice touch!

Oooh! I'm the top helicopter pilot in the Platoon! I'm actually very very bad, I just had an amazing run of luck with the scout helicopter.

I felt like a kid on christmas morning during the jet single player mission. When we walked out of the ship and up to the top of the aircraft carrier my jaw just dropped. It really looked amazing. All the Jet flight checks and then launching right off the ship was like I was really that woman in the flight suit. It was a great gaming moment I wont soon forget.

The multiplayer is a blast. Every map has beautiful lighting and colors that I just wanted to stand still and stare half the time. This game run silky smooth on my mid range machine (q6600 @3.4, 560ti) and still manages to look absolutely gorgeous. The sound is also amazing. I cant get enough of hearing a rocket or tank shell fly by my head and then smash into a wall near me. A great small but great sound moment was when I was hiding in a building. Someone saw me through a window and shot the glass out. As soon as that happened the sound of howling wind began to pour through the building.

One of my favorite moments last night in multi was when a guy was shooting at our squad from a watchtower. I told my squad to "watch this" and I took out my Rocket launcher and shot out the tower. It crumbled into a million pieces and took out the guy that had us pinned.

Ha ha I remember that guy in the tower, I was suppressing him while you lined up your shot. This game is amazing. With the exception of some weird server issues which I will chalk up to bandwidth growing pains and one level that seems to constantly lag, this is the most solid DICE release yet.

I'm so happy that I built a new PC for this game. Run it at 1920x1080 at Ultra at buttery 60fps and it's easily one of the best looking games ever. Up until this point, I wondered if anything would top the quality of sound design in System Shock 2 and we may have a winner there as well. Aside from some of the Battlelog stuff last night (which I forgive cause the game wasn't technically out yet), it also looks like has actually shipped a product that's not only not a disaster at launch but actually polished! I thought I'd hate the web based matchmaking but so far, I think it's brilliant. The game launches quick, they made it swapping friendly and it doesn't feel like it's dragging my system through the mud every time it tries to start.

I look forward to putting many hours into this.

Well, the morning before work game was a mistake. Went 2-9 with no caps. Apparently I don't shoot well before breakfast.

Odd thing was that it was a ranked server, but everything was unlocked. I thought you allow extra unlocks on servers only if they were not ranked?

Looking forward to hooking up with all of ou again.
The brevity of my time in game was great.
Now if i can get it to let me stay logged in for longer than 5 minutes. I'm hoping that was just layover of the Korea hack last night.

WOOT

Tempest, thanks for the tie update on the emblem I was going to do it when I was testing, but didn't want to screw with another man's work.

I've been talking about BF3 for a while at work so hopefully my colleagues don't put 2 and 2 together.

I guess I need to tag this thread now. Anyway, I had a lot of fun this evening, and I've stayed up way too late.

Does anyone know why I unable to use PTT in Vent while I am in-game? It is really annoying. I don't think I have any game keys bound to the key I am using.

Try running ventrilo as an administrator. It's happened before to some friends of mine where Vent would quit working on certain games, and that was the solution.

Hope this helps sir.

No problem. You could have changed it though

An in depth look about the graphics and aesthetics of Battlefield 3. The Frostbite 2 game engine is amazing. THese are very in depth and super interesting (for me anyway since I do 3d)

The end of vid 1 explains why the game runs so smoothly on our machines. Even takes a subtle shot at Carmack and Rage.

For those of you who had a chance to play, are the servers holding up pretty well? And how does the server Ranalin got feel? This is going to be the longest day every

I'm pretty sure TempestBlayze made the logo and WipEout added suit guy.

Cool videos! This engine is really a awesome technical achievement.

Hoping to get on tonight, but what with the baby refusing to sleep of late:

baby: waah! (meaning: my teeth hurt!)
me: go to sleep!
baby: waaaaah! (f*ck you! my teeth really hurt!)

the dirty looks I'd receive from Mrs. Lobster while trying to fire up the game while baby lobster screams are... prohibitive.

Tagging this thread. I realized the beta nVidia drivers I had to install for BF3 Beta had disabled SLI so I'm anxious to see how it performs now.

I'll in the same boat tonight. With any luck, I'll be on by 8 PM until the baby monitor pipes up. Daddy needs to cap some MCOMs.

Anyone playing on the consoles this morning? How's lag and server connections?

Done! Sorry for lack of credit before.
