64 player Metro is just stupid. Instead of wanting US side, you want Russia. Gets to B faster, and once there, just stand on the side and chuck grenades. I gained 2 levels and came in 2nd place just throwing down ammo and tossing grenades, with the occasional shoot someone in the face.

What do you guys think about this card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-150-656&nm_mc=EMC-GD021813&cm_mmc=EMC-GD021813-_-index-_-Item-_-14-150-656

$175 - $25 rebate = $150. Appears I can sell off the Bioshock and Tomb Raider for another $50 on eBay, so $100 total. Good enough for BF3 (and hopefully BF4) or do I need to keep planning on hundreds more?

From mp1st:

A key take-away from this portion of the interview is that Air Superiority will support up to 24 jets in the air at the same time, 12 on each side. In order to win a match of Air Superiority, your team will need to have a higher presence of jet fighters within the vicinity of three different capture points, depicted by three different airships.

That's one of the cards I was looking at spyder. I'm liking the 7850 I got so I'd recommend it.
Except I'm keeping the games hah.. Actually kinda one of the reasons I went ahead and got a 2g card, My other out is to my tv so I can play them/others on my tv instead.

My how large video cards have become!

"Free Bioshock&Tomb Raider game coupon w/ purchase, limited offer"

I've been out of the loop for a while, but I wonder if this means it's a download code and not the actual DVD. If so, you may not be able o sell them for as much as you think.

I'm mostly curious if you think this card will possibly handle BF4 as well. I'd like to not be forced to plunk down another $200 in less than a year. Seems like a good card, but I'm only going off what the reviews and ratings say. I won't be keeping the games, but that's only due to the fact that my wife and kid are dying to play both Bioshock and Tomb Raider...so those will both be Xbox purchases instead.

It's for a DLC code for both games, but completed listings on eBay go for around $50 - $65. I do my research. wink.gif

Great...Zath, I watched the kamikaze video you posted above and now now I have that song stuck in my head.

Spyder, do you think bf4 will be on the new gen consoles and the player count will equal pc or will bf4 for PC have even more players than the new consoles at the time?

It's my understanding that BF4 will be offered on both the next gen and current gen consoles, with the slight possibility that there will be cross-console availability. What it really comes down to is whether Sony/MS feel it's more important to let "richer" players still play with their "poorer" friends that don't buy a PS4/XBox at launch or if pitching grenades and getting 3-4 kills per toss (ala Zath on PC Metro) is going to make them the most cash. I honestly don't think that even next gen consoles will have 64 player, nor do I see the PC going any higher than they are right now. Personally, I hope cross-console is a reality, as I can't afford $4K for everyone in my house to get new consoles. However, it's going to VERY interesting, to say the least, as to what happens in the next few months. If the rumored "one disc, one console" greedfest takes place, I don't see me buying any new consoles anytime soon. frown.gif

Side note: Of course, I missed out on the Asus 7850 deal on Amazon by minutes. $80 would have been a no brainer. frown.giffrown.giffrown.gif
post #13395 of 16243
Well i think the latest rumor is still that BF4 is supposed to use frostbite 2.0 again so you won't have any problems running it. Settings will probably be on medium/high mixed to keep the FPS respectable.

Trail I doubt consoles go that high in player counts, I could see 40. Which would be pretty perfect imo. Several places are saying to expect more BF4 news within the next months.

Some funny shyte, but at 9:00 - 9:52, I nearly pissed myself laughing at the outcome. Also, from 3:45 - 4:45...I miss MAV trolling. biggrin.gif

Amazon has this deal in 30 minutes:

A premium shooter at a not-so-premium price.

Wondering if it's BF3 premium. If so, I might pick it up if it's 30 or less...
post #13399 of 16243
nevermind it's $40
post #13400 of 16243
40 is still better then buying the premium content DLC, because that is $50.00 and the amazon deal will net you a second copy of the regular game

More End Game info. About the new maps.

Battlefield 3: End Game brings the battle to four distinct environments featuring everything from arid desert landscapes to snowy mountain areas. Learn more about the map variety on offer below.

Four distinct maps are on offer in End Game. Size-wise, they are comparable to Caspian Border and Operation Firestorm from the base game, while the flag layout resembles that in our previous expansion pack Armored Kill – Meaning that we have spaced the capture points and bases to make full use of the entire Battlefield.

While all maps are carefully created to cater for the new dirt bike, the new AA vehicles should see heavy use on most of the maps as well. This new transport has a roof mounted turret that can switch between rockets and anti-air missiles to protect your infantry and combat air threats.

OPERATION RIVERSIDE

Internal working title: “XP5_001” or River”
Supported game modes: Capture the Flag (NEW), Air Superiority (NEW), Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush, Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch
Distinguishing features: This fall themed map houses an electric power substation at its center, with a small river flowing along its axis. The layout of the bases in Operation Riverside caters somewhat towards infantry action rather than all-out vehicle warfare. It’s generally speaking an infantry-friendly landscape where soldiers can go by foot between the bases, while ground vehicles need to take more roundabout roads to traverse the environment.

Across the river giving this map its name, players can find a spectacular jump in the form of a partly destroyed wooden bridge. A lot of other ramps have been carefully placed in the environment on Operation Riverside to make sure that the map is full of exciting options for riders of the new dirt bike. You can read more about the spectacular jumps in End Game in this previous blog post.

NEBANDAN FLATS

Internal working title: “XP5_002” or “Flats”
Supported game modes: Capture the Flag (NEW), Air Superiority (NEW), Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush, Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch
Distinguishing features: In this arid desert dotted with gigantic wind generators lies a seemingly non-distinguishing warehouse. But behind its unassuming exterior hides a secret weapons and munitions depot, leading to a clash in the area. The relative openness of the desert setting allows for full freedom of movement for the entire range of vehicles at disposal in Battlefield 3 multiplayer. The low amount of natural cover available also demands quick transportation between capture points, as players are otherwise open to attack.

KIASAR RAILROAD

Internal working title: “XP5_003” or “Railroad”
Supported game modes: Capture the Flag (NEW), Air Superiority (NEW), Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush, Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch
Distinguishing features: This picturesque summer logging industry setting sees a strategic railway stretch across the map – with covert weapons deliveries being its main purpose. The many height changes in this undulating landscape can be used to your advantage – There’s plenty of opportunity to hide from the enemy and use cover as you approach your targets.

While this map also has ample opportunity for dirt bike riders to catch big air, the jumps on Kiasar Railroad are typically more carefully molded into the landscape itself, or not as obvious.

SABALAN PIPELINE

Internal working title: “XP5_004” or “Pipeline”
Supported game modes: Capture the Flag (NEW), Air Superiority (NEW), Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush, Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch
Distinguishing features: Ever since we demoed the Alborz Mountain map at GamesCom 2012 and saw the amazing fan reactions, we’ve known that snow is one of the most stunning settings we can provide in Battlefield 3. Sabalan Pipeline is no different. The oil pipeline traversing this frosty winter landscape has immense economic value and is a highly contested battlefield.

Similar to Operation Riverside, Sabalan Pipeline was built to cater for a mix of vehicle and infantry gameplay. Compared to the other three maps in End Game, Sabalan Pipeline has fewer and narrower roads that are important to control if you want to dominate the opposition. At the center of this map lies a central base that is also an essential asset, as it allows you extended control over the road leading to and from your main bases. This is equally important whether playing the signature Battlefield Conquest mode or our take on Capture the Flag that we are introducing in End Game.

We’re excited to present our players with such a broad variety of environments to expand their Battlefield experience with come March. Join us here on the Battlefield Blog for more breaking news on End Game up until launch. Let us know what you think in the poll and comments section below, and we’ll make sure to check in and discuss with you!
