Holy ****. When i first saw this:



I thought it was a real life comparison shot, and WOW at the new pics. THE best looking game I've seen yet and the textures are awesome!

Thanks so much adams828. I posted your new pics in the CoD4 Thread on neoGAF, with all due credit going to you and AVSforum.

Any comments on the gameplay?

As good as this looks, the PC version looks as good or better (especially if you have the hardware to support it). I'm serious.

XBOX Live: Wagmman
PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman
Steam: Wag

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

It would be embarrassing if it couldn't look better on PC.

Any game SHOULD look better on a high end PC but I am very impressed with the PS3 look with this game.

Hi adams828

Very envious of your early copy. Just one question. You mentioned that in the multiplayer menu you were not given the ability to select a server to join? So does this imply that once you click on multiplayer and then 'join game' it picks one randomly for you? That to my opinion is a bit weak, it's like Rainbow Six Vegas all over again where you join the most random laggy games. You are basically given no indication of the connection quality like other games boldly highlight. If you have the time could you throw over a few more details in regards to the multiplayer menu. Thanks, would surely appreciate it. Or If anyone else has details in sync with this issue that would be great!

Maybe he meant there were no servers to join because no one else was playing online yet? The game's official release date is Nov 5th.

That interview said dedicated servers but really didn't specify if all platforms. Does anybody know for 100% certainty if true for the PS3?

Okay guys, sorry to do this but I gotta sleep! Last one before bed..



gzagza: from what I could tell, you would just choose the game type and then be automatically joined in a game - however as others have said, there aren't really any games being hosted right now so i'm not 100% sure on that.

benkrishman: sorry missed that before, it lists 720p, 1080i and 1080p

overall gameplay thoughts so far: good pace of action/rest, although the firefights are getting intense and harder already (regular difficulty). squad AI seems pretty decent so far, as SAS you are a follower but as USMC it plays as though you're the leader. huge selection of weapons (m4a1, ak-47, mp5, shotgun, rpg, tow missile launcher, sniper rifle to name a few). i do wish it showed more of a cutscene view of the few rappels so far, but i guess 1st person is the game's style.

all right, no more screenies until tomorrow night, but i'll try and answer any questions i can at work tomorrow. if anyone has any picture taking/posting tips, please let me know. so far i've been doing 2-sec timer pics set on -0.3EV program (Sony H2) but just can't seem to get the sharpness and color 100%

thanks for that. I really hope you at least get a faint idea of what sort of server your joining. e.g. connection quality, number of people ect...

Good looking screenshots btw!! can't wait

I love that even these pics don't do justice to what you're seeing coming out of the PS3...

Nice job adam, now I know this game has 1080p!

adam could you rate the single player out of 10? Even though I only play online I'd like to know how the single player is.

I played the PC demo and as far as these types of games go, this game is the best of its kind. You really must play the single player part of the game, it's quite excellent.

It looks like OPM has given the game a 10/10... That is BOTH official mags (OXM gave it a 10 too) giving this game a perfect score... That's gotta be extremely rare right?

Looks great...I've already got mine pre-ordered and this just confirmed I made a wise choice (though I would like to hear about the split screen capabilities). Thanks, adams828.
