Looks amazing. I'm glad to see they slowed the jets down considerably from BF2. They were so fast before they weren't very balanced gameplay-wise

Wow Brad. Just wow. Also, I am sad Ken beat me so I didn't get to use this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+is+pwned

I found out yesterday that EA is being kind of obnoxious with their new "Origin" downloadable content provider service they are using now because they don't want Steam getting a cut of their profits anymore. Apparently in the terms of service it says that if you don't log in over a timespan of 2 years, your account gets deleted. That means any games tied to it are gone. And you can't get around this by purchasing a physical copy of the game, as you have to create an Origin account just to play the game, and your CD key is validated through it. If your account gets deleted, your CD key goes with it, meaning your discs would be blacklisted.

Now, 2 years is a pretty long time, and it probably won't affect me, and especially not while I'm playing BF3, but it's still kind of disconcerting just to know that they are waiting to delete my game if I forget to log in every once in a while.

Update!

I looked into the issue some more and found that EA has responded. Apparently they wrote that clause to prevent the buildup of inactive accounts created for purposes besides proper use of the service. Anyone who owns and plays games will probably never have to worry about it.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/gaming/2011/08/03/ea-s-origin-to-delete-inactive-accounts/1


And now from the "what the hell?" news division:

Shortly after the good news for console players that the console versions of BF3 would get server browsers instead of just a matchmaking option, EA has turned around and stated that the PC version of BF3 won't get a server browser in-game. All menu functions of BF3 will be done through the battlelog, which is accessed through a web browser window. This means that players will have to exit the game or alt-tab to switch servers.

I hope they will allow you to climb over walls if someone gives you a lift up in the multi-player as well as the single player campaign.

Your Battlefield 3 Open Beta early access questions answered

With the Battlefield 3 Open Beta starting September 29th, millions of gamers will have the chance to play Battlefield 3, help us test our back-end, and give us valuable feedback on the game.

Some of you will be eligible to start playing the Open Beta as early as September 27th, a full 48 hours before the it opens to the public. This post will answer any of your questions on how early access to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta works.

If you have more questions, we have a more extensive Open Beta FAQ at this link.

Q: What are the regular dates for the Open Beta?
A: September 29th-October 10th, 2011.

Q: Who is eligible for early access to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta on September 27th?
A: Customers who have pre-ordered the PC digital download version of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin, or registered their first-hand copy of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, or purchased Medal of Honor Limited Edition from Steam prior to July 26th, 2011.

Q: How do I join the early access Open Beta?
A: For Xbox 360, you will receive an email with instructions and your personal early access code. Note your code and follow the instructions.

For Playstation 3, the early access Open Beta will automatically appear for you in the PlayStation Network Store.

On PC, you will receive an email with instructions and your personal early access code. Note your code and follow the instructions to redeem the code on Origin.

Q: I bought Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition on Steam. How do I get early access?
A: If you purchased Medal of Honor through Steam prior to July 26th, 2011 cut-off, you are eligible for early access to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta.

To view your key, go to Medal of Honor in your Steam library, and click the "cd key" link. Find the "Battlefield 3 Open Beta early access" key.

Battlefield 3 is delivered through Electronic Arts' Origin client. (direct download, 47mb: www.origin.com/download )

Once you have Origin installed, run it and log in with your Origin ID. (This will be the same as your EA account ID used in Medal of Honor.). In the Origin client, click the gear icon in the top menu bar, and then select "redeem product code".

Q: Is Origin required to play the Open Beta?
A: Origin is not required to play on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. For PC, Origin will be used to distribute the Open Beta installation and run the game, and is therefore necessary to play.

Q: Where do I install Origin?
A: www.origin.com/download

Mick's been having trouble getting into the game. Something about his video card being incompatible. If your planning in playing you should try the Beta to see if it works for you. Would really suck if you bought the game and it turns out you can't even play it.

I was having video card issues due to out of date drivers.
I finally got the correct drivers installed and was able to get into games but the computer would crash after 3-5 minutes of play.
After reading the forums and poking around I notice most of my video card settings were set to max. This may have been over heating the PC.
I set them down to the second lowest setting and was able to play 3 rounds without crashing. (about 50 min.)

View user profile
on until at least 2am? How's work going today?

Finally got it working around 1:00. Wanted to play until it crashed but it never did. Got too tied and went to bed.
Very tired today. Going to a poker game at Stu's tonight, so it's going to be up late again.
I may bring my laptop to show Stu and Damon BF3. But on second thought once Kobe see it he'll want to play on it.

Strike Force Black has 6 members now, and we went out and had a hell of a time last night.
So far our SFB Platoon has these members:

Saturnus (me)
Crysalia (Elizabeth, David's Wife)
Tesshu (David)
Darthdeo (David's Brother)
JavaTango (Chris, Mick's friend)
Chanic (Trevor)

I'm still waiting for Spur29 (Mick) to accept the invite to the Platoon. Maybe tonight.
Anyone else going to play? Mick, is Damon and Scott going to try it?

Let me know your user names or email your signing up with and I'll invite you.
So far the game is awesome, even though we are only playing one map.
