2 muppets, who only setup off duty gamers 18 months ago - hardly BF press veterans. Spent a lot of time talking about their own history in the US forces. Like anyone FUCKING CARES.
How the hell these two muppets got press passes compared to the much more professional editorial sites is beyond me. They come across as both being fairly dimwitted an inexperienced in front the camera.

Not the best of starts so far











tank bullet drop seems similar to bf2 judging by the SP footage
tanks have thermal vision

Confirmed 4 classes :/

They've combined ASSAULT and MEDIC??? wtf



Talking about how they listen to the community. bah rubbish tongue.gif
Hands up if you even knew we had a community manager tongue.gif

Strange that the interviewer ape seemed to reckon all the people he'd spoken to played BF on consoles. The comment from the interviewee "don't know why anyone would even consider playing a BF game on a console" was great tongue.gif


At the moment the streaming video has been a couple of short interviews with DICE staff, not really revealing anything new, interspersed with the 2 ape like interviewers seemingly finding people with less charisma and intelligence than themselves to interview and a few mash ups of know trailer (faultline etc.,) footage





A bit of blather about DLC's etc.,

Confirmed suppressors (to supresh muzzle flare)

Battlelog: Bringing the community to one place. The whole hub for PC gaming. Apparently the game can be launched from the website. Platoons = clans (glad we registered the bf3platoon.com website tongue.gif) So far this isn't exactly new ground - most of the stat related functionality was already part of bf2s.com :s

Am bored now, there's no real new info. For that matter there's no real new footage - they've just repeated the previously showed video from before. Also the interviewers are muppets.

I'd rather someone just decked those interviewers and just filmed someone playing the damn multiplayer

Calling it quits there.

In summary from some review site:

"
The game looks fantastic. Runs smooth, the lighting and details, the shadows are spectacular, whether indoor or outside. We dunno what hardware it was running on, but BF3 is absolutely gorgeous.
After you die, a screen pops up that shows the custom dog tag and rank of the enemy that killed you — great little detail.
Teams were USMC and Russians.
Prone is back, it feels like it takes a second or so to go prone. Not too fast, not too slow, just right.
The map offered a lot of variety: you can enter lots of buildings, go up to the second floor, camp etc. We already saw a few campers who loved the new buildings.
Destruction is extensive and a lot more detailed. Even shooting a wall looks amazing in BF3.
Weapons feel and sound like Bad Company 2 (on first impression), meaning they feel and sound fantastic.
Player animations are far better than Bad Company 2 and other Battlefield games. Very fluid and lifelike, almost as if you are watching someone run in real life.
The scoreboard looks a lot simpler than in Bad Company 2. We dunno if it was finalized or just alpha.
We had a few awards pop up during the game (ribbons) which looked a lot like those in BF2.
No commo rose. It wasn’t bound to the “Q” button. We looked, couldn’t find it anywhere.
You can op-out of being revived.
There is a health bar, but regenerative health is back.
You can select fire mode (e.g. single shot, full auto etc.)
4 players per squad, squad leader is indicated by a star. Squads work pretty much like in Bad Company 2, and you still get squad point bonuses.
In support, you can use an M4 with a flashlight.
You can mount LMGs on the ground and on most surfaces, but the gun can only pan approximately 90 degrees to left and right, which feels realistic."
