Re: BF3 Begins Tomorrow

Well this is odd. I right clicked my download in Origin and looked at the game details. Download manual was an option so I went ahead and did it, and I got just the epilepsy warning in 23 different languages.

I think that randomness calls for one last hurrah with BFBC2 before the game launches Tuesday.

Grabbed mine from Amazon.
Unfortunately their "download app" didn't let me designate where I could download the file to. Sooooo, after I got about 75% the download failed b/c by default it downloads to my C: drive.
I had to download the Amazon Games and Software Downloader which does allow you to point to a specific folder. I figured I could just copy what I've already downloaded over to a different drive and point the downloader there. NOPE! When I did that, the downloader tried to extract the file instead of pick up where it left off.

I have never tried Amazon's download service to be honest. Its a bummer that you had some issues.

I can tell you that the Origin download was flawless for me. Downloaded without a problem at all for me. I am ready for October 25th.

Been gaming for years but never prepared so much for one game...New mouse "Cyborg Rat 5" and a "Razer nostromo" that kicks-ass.

This was my first experience with Amazon's service as well. If Origin had offered the Limited Edition for $42 like Amazon, I'd have just gotten it through them. Heck, maybe they did and I just missed it.

i was rockin BF2 with Belkin Nostromo n52. its nice to see Razer bought the product, put pretty light, slap their logo, and voila, $30 more expensive

my only complain? not enough button. so i map the thumb-directional as 1-4 for weapons, and the Enter button as map.

I'm starting to doubt he actually played or ordered it.
With all his constant bitching he has not mentioned anything about the link on origin's website that is for canceling his order.

Played the Beta to see if I wanted to buy it but after seeing all the hackers hacked servers no thanks as of yet,

As my understanding with PB and how this will work you cheat on BF3 all Origin games you're banned from if thats correct I may buy it.

Until then I will stay with BC2 time will tell.

I think I am going to pick up Mass Effect 1 and 2 when Steam puts them on sale in December. Two games I wish I played and never did.

I played the demo on PS3 ME2 and to my surprise I loved it..

Now as far as BF3 I did not put my name on a preorder list because I don't think I would of got a copy on release day so I'm just going to wait like a week or so after.

If you intend to buy it, do it now. I think some of the bennies included with the preorder go away (aren't there remastered BC2 maps included?) after it's been released.

Wow I don't even now where to start with this guy. First you come in here talking about how horrible Origin is and then suddenly you are griping because your download is delayed. Ok first of all who complains about a download being a few hours late that you can't even use for another 4 days? Wah.

Now on to the big one. "anything Dice Touch's is crap" "Until then I will stay with BC2" Do I really even need to point out what is wrong with those two statements coming from the same person. Do you not know who made BC2? I am actually amazed at how many times one person can contradict himself in one thread. I salute you sir.

Yes I did pre-order like everyone had done and like
most played the beta,after thinking about all the hacking and hacked servers that shouldnt be there on day1. I thought to myself I will cancel like alot of players have done,they dont like the ideal of the hit detection/VoIP/ on the client side.also no in game browser which the consoles will have one

This is a half a$$ baked game all hackers will leave BC2 and move on to BF3.have fun with that.

Dice even confirmed my security concerns in regards to battlelog.

Nothing is really secure,however to my understanding on how origin will work if you cheat under BF3 all games you have under origin will get a bann.

If this is the case I will buy BF3.

Steam is the same - VAC catches you.. banhammer. Off to play SP with your hacks.

Im not a steam fanboi.. but as far as detections go.

Steam 500'000 > EA Origin 0.. Now EA is going to use punkbuster, so thats a plus. But will a PB violation = Origin banning, or will it just be server.

No one cares if acid is so internally conflicted that he can't decide if he loves or hates DICE.

This game is going to be badass! I love it when I see Marine stuff done right (FWIW my unit's vehicles were used in Battle: Los Angeles), and the amount of realism I have seen in the beta this far and how they are outfitted in the trailers is unreal. DICE really deserves kudos for their attention to detail and getting the small things right.
