    I didn't enjoy playing it at all, that's why I was extremely hesitant to get BF2 when it came out. But, playing through that, it made me realized it WAS fun. So, I went back and popped 42 in, and I still didn't have any fun :(

    Oh well, some games just aren't meant to be.

    The beta is AMAZING and I hated bad company!! Ive never heard sound like this in a game before its unbelievable, again even better than the first. It reminds me of BF2 a lot which is not a bad thing at all. So DICE give us BF3 for PC on this engine and Ill be a happy camper! MW2 what???

    Granted this is BAD COMPANY 2 not BF3, does this game feel like a successor to BF1942 and BF2? I'm talking in terms of feel, scope, gameplay etc.

    Or does it rather feel like... well, a successor to Bad Company?

    To me, it feels like a perfect mix. Obviously, max of 24 players, you don't get the epicness of 42/2 battles. Since we haven't had a chance to play around with the air, I can't give you a full say on that. I'd say if you enjoyed BF2, you'll enjoy this. Just because I didn't really enjoy Bad Company 1 too much *It wasn't horrid...* but this is fun as shit.

    Also one can only imagine how a true BF3 on pc with the larger teams all running on this engine would be! Can you say epic!

    Anyone else having a hard time seeing the tank crosshair? I feel like the green thing is almost invisible.

    At first I thought this game was just MEH. But now that I've been playing it more I find it way better than say MW2 MP. Importance of teamplay is really the key here, one dumbass guy takes the tank and the whole attack will seize untill he's dead.

    That said, I'm finding defending to be too hard on the game, or attacking is too easy. I'd say I've won every part where I've been the attacker but won the defence side maybe like two times. Maybe they should lower the speed the engineers can repair or something like that. Full tank with a couple of engineers is just mayhem.

    They should lower the tank armor while increasing the gunners damage. I am so sick of pegging a guy 5 times and him STILL be alive. I agree 100% that something needs to be done about the tanks. If you have 4 dedicated guys as Engineers, and all prepared right away, tanks aren't so bad. How often does that happen, though? What if it's the first stage, where there are 2+ tanks at a time?

    I get so frustrated at the tanks taking down the bombs. I don't know about anybody else, but the only warning I get that anything is happening is a couple of flashes on their icon. I'd like something..."Shit, they are shooting the bomb!" or anything.

    God this game just gets better and better the more you play it.

    Making a building collapse on some sniper camper makes you just go "ooo yeeaaa" (insert quagmire voice), split an egg on the table and wax your hair back with it.

    Saw a hilarious bug today. One sniper was camping behind some rocks and for some reason he had his parachute over him like he was dropping. I think no one else saw this since our tank drove close to him and didn't stop or anything. I just went around the guy and stabbed his ass, epic (the parachute disapeared as soon as he died).

    I don't know, the parachutes are mildly annoying. I don't see how you can deploy it while jumping a whole 10 feet and bam it's deployed and you don't lose any health from the fall. Maybe a little reworking, but I've honestly never used the 'chute. I can't think of many places where it is NEEDED instead of just going down stairs/ladders.

    From what I remember, in earlier Battlefield games it was much the same. You can deploy a parachute while not going very far down. although, sniping from a high perch, running out of ammo, and then going rambo with your pistol by parachuting down is still awesome in BF2.

    Yes, it was very possible, but was still equally as retarded.

    Anyone still playing? Just set up a U.S PSN a/c so was able to use my fileplanet key.

    my U.S PSN is: hankscorpio118.

    First thing I noticed was the jaggies and the sound. The sound is incredible. Controls take getting used to. I was dying for a mouse and keyboard tbh. I don't like the headbob either. Only played a few rounds and was getting own'd. Look forward to playing it over Xmas more.

    I wonder when they are going to release some SP news. I never played the first BC but I was always interested in the story/humor.

    Same. I wanna know what those four are up to, besides freezing their asses off in a new snow environment and how the Legionnaire leader will plot his vengeance.

    Dice released a new video featuring a new map plus vehicles.

    Those who don't know the beta ends in 21st, few days a way...

    Does anyone know if theres going to be any graphical differences between the console versions (pc will of course look way better with DX11). This might just be the first game I will buy on PS3 over Xbox 360.

    Yesterday I came across one very anoying player. We were defending and the battle was going on the second last points. This guy had driven himself on to the side of the mountain, behind the village and was shooting from there (had the scope for tank). It was impossible to kill him since he would just kill everyone who tried to run to to the TOW-missile, and if you actually got a hit, he'd just repair the vehicle. The dude sat there for the rest of the match, they still lost though.

    Am I the only one thinking that the M1911 (or whats it called) pistol is a bit too powerfull? I usually use the pistol rather than the rifle.

    I read somewhere where the PC will have better destruction simply because of the higher capabilities of a PC.

    Sadly, I think I know EXACTLY where you are talking about. I hate people who sit up there.

    Don't ever say this again, DX10 and DX11 are pure marketing BS and DX9 can do exactly the same through different methods. Dirty companies(Microsoft, ATI, Nvidia) are paying game devs to use DX10/11 exclusive features.
    Only advantage of DX11 is that it's apperantly easier to code for programmers(that's what I heard, atleast)

    So you're not a programmer but that doesn't stop you from displaying your ignorance? You have no clue.

    Start drinking Dr. Pepper for DLC codes:

    Also heads up people!
    Unfortunately they are sticking with Punkbuster for anti-cheat (I'm not sure which is worse, VAC or Punkbuster though) and there are no dedicated servers. You have to rent a server from a "trusted partner". http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/61864

    I wonder if by "trusted partners" they mean well known public server providers, and not EA themselves. IE, I can rent a server from say, Gameservers if they are one of their "trusted partners".

    No mod tools is a real bummer for me. I'm not a mapper or modder by any means, but I was really looking forward to being able to play some of the old BF2 maps on the new Frostbite engine. That is, unless DICE has a surprise for us in mind, which I doubt.
