BF3

Post by Swatt » Tue Oct 25, 2011 9:11 am

Coming from ET:QW, Tribes2, UT2K3/4 I've always liked the vehicle supported FPSs. I played Battlefield 1942, but other games pulled me from following the series. Following the Brink train wreck, anyone pulling the trigger on BF3? I see the egg has a nice promo for it:

Nobody have any concerns over EA's Origin tool? Seems the original EULA gave them access to your entire system to do with as they wish. :huh:

Couple articles say they are slowly changing it but I would still be cautious.

time to see if the 5750 cuts it, or if NewEgg is making another early x-mas delivery

The game is simply the most detailed game I have ever played...in the one campaign map I was playing it was a small platoon trying to rescue prisoners held in building in Iraq...freaking crazy realism as we worked through the streets, thought I was interacting in a CNN live feed. The climbing, jumping, sliding make the Brink engine seem old.

As far as hardware, my quad core, 4 gig of ram and ATI 5750 run the game smooth without any tweaking in the setup.
