Battlefield 3!



  • Hi Guys,

    Just wondering if anyone will be buying the Battlefield 3 game and if so why and what console?

    I personally, have a major interest in BF3 and have played BF2 since I found out about its dynamic enviroment and 95% destructable Frostbite system.

    However, I am a PS3 owner! but might have to build a PC if this game is as good as the 55 awards say it is!!

    For those who are interested in the game and own a PS3 my Sign in is: OmegaParticle

    Feel free to add me, just let me know who you are in the subjec or put “BF3 - Team Request”.

    Not me.

    I got bored of FPS type games years ago. Can’t believe they still sell as well as they do to be honest.

    Maybe I’m getting old. :rolleyes:


  • Alpha Testers

    “Getting”…???
    :D:D:D:D

    WE are indeed ‘Lux’

    I will more than likely be taking a look at it Richard but at a later date and on PC.
    the in game footage I’ve seen is awesome…:)

    LoL, to some part i agree with you. Esspecially with games like COD where by year after year they bring out the same gameplay but nothing else different. Just run around shooting…

    But Battlefield is different, you can actually take command of a team, pilot Aircraft, tanks and UAV’s. Buildings are destructable so if you have a group of guys hiding in a building shooting out the window’s and you cant get near it with your troops then you can take it out with missile launchers or heavy artilary.

    And like all enviroments if you take that one building down it could in some way’s effects the outcome of the game.

    The maps are hugh! and you can depending on skill push people back into the map, or hold of a hill top etc.

    Completely different skillset to cod where the enviroment you play in is restricted and fixed.

    So the PC spec in your sig isn’t powerful enough for it?

    Cheeky beggar, I’ll come over to OZ land and clout your ears. :p

    But Battlefield is different,

    I have seen plenty footage of it and read enough about it to know that it is an improvement on other FPS’s I won’t deny that. But I just sort of go meh! when I see another FPS getting released. Used to love them but not any more, just can’'t summon up an ounce of excitement about them these days.



  • @TBGBe:

    I only have a laptop 2 years old. I doubt it could run BF3 as its GPU isnt really a gaming quality card.

    But I have thought about buying or building myself a new PC based on the Maximim requirements of BF3.

    Luxor, i can see exactly where you are coming from! maybe oneday you will be brought back to the world of FPS.

    Untill then… i shall play for you ;o)

    Ironic really when you think about it. 🙂


  • Alpha Testers

    Indeed Richard…we seem to have slipped briefly into our own ‘Battlefield’…:D

    hmmm…not so sure about the ‘Old Timers’ tag though…:rolleyes:



  • I’m thinking about getting it for my PC, but being old FPS are getting hard for this old timer to keep up with the young folks.


  • Alpha Testers

    damn…another ‘Old Timer’…seems to be quite a few of us around here…:D

    So the newspapers are correct with their assumption that violent games make people violent. 😃

    Yeah! cheeky young whipper-snapper. He’s next in line for a clout round the ears Moles. 😃

    I cant really say much to that without insulting a majority of you. so as a sign of respect for you elders i shall keep my mouth closed 😃 … Ooops


  • Alpha Testers

    Hey ‘Lux’…there’s the reference to ‘Age’ once again…
    Richard just loves to play dirty sometimes…:D



  • @moles42:

    Listen you guys, i started this thread to talk about a game, the fact remains you started the debate about age 😉

    So dont try and throw this “age” debate on me!

    “Bloody old people… always blaiming the young for their problems…” Oopps again. 😃


  • Alpha Testers

    @Sir:

    Bloody old people… always blaiming the young for their problems…" Oopps again. 😃

    Bloody youngsters these days, no respect for their elders. :p


  • Alpha Testers

    I’ve aged considerably since this thread began…:D

    @moles42:

    I’ve aged considerably since this thread began…:D

    I remember when all this was trees you know. 😃


  • Alpha Testers

    I say let’s get out while the goings good ‘Lux’…
    I’m not giving Richard any more opportunities to give us grief about our ‘elder years’…:D


  • Alpha Testers

    Probably a good idea Moles. 😃

    It’s not Richard though, it’s PB Richy. 😉



  • No Lux, from now on it’s “OmegaParticle” !



  • @Luxor:

    Probably a good idea Moles. 😃

    It’s not Richard though, it’s PB Richy. 😉

    Ok, what is this PB Richy… I am working on the assumption PB is Patch Beam! and you have nick named me that because i keep going on about not being able to use it behind proxy’s 😃

    Now listen here guys… PB Richy is always correct! EVEN when you think im not making sense, later down the line i am correct.

    Battlefiled 3 rules…



  • Now that I got my bifocals on I can get caught up on this theard.



  • I have forgot why i started this thread! So i might have to repeat myself a couple of times and speak clearer and louder so you lot can hear me! 😃



  • @Sir:

    Ok, what is this PB Richy…

    I just thought it was a shorthand for “ProBably” (as in when/if he gets a new PC) 😕
