Battlefield 3 - Page 529

post #15841 of 16243
I'm debating the PS3 into PS4 version. Just not convinced I want to pony up $70 for it. On the one hand I could keep my preorder intact and get the DD of BF4. BF will be a long term play but $70....plus premium if I get it. Can always trade the PS3 version off I guess and get some recouped.

I hear ya man. Just throwing it out there in case you change your mind. On a side note you find the craziest pictures, do you have a single source or do you just blindly search for raptor riding a shark with RPG and laser or giant pear that is smiling and its saying "Lol wut?".

Wow! That looks exciting, I can't wait to play bf4. It will be interesting to see and feel the difference of bf4 beta current gen to bf4 on next gen

I thought you have to have the ps3 version in the tray to play the ps4 version if you do that deal? Or did I read it wrong?

Yea found that out later.

That video looks so awesome.

I'm going to hold off on playing BF4 until next gen. Don't want to spoil anything by playing it on current gen. No beta for me either.

I took off the week of Thanksgiving just to play video games biggrin.gif
post #15849 of 16243
Man Hapi that sounds nice, I can't remember the last time I've had a relaxing Thanksgiving. I don't know if I'll be able to resist not playing the beta.
post #15850 of 16243
I always spend Thanksgiving with my parents, but this year I think I'll stay home, avoid the chaos of holiday travel and just bunker down, play games, and catch up on some much needed sleep. Also taking the 15th off as well, so I'll be putting the hurt on my PS4 launch weekend.

Just can't do the beta. The game is meant to played with 64+ players with high resolution graphics. I would feel short-changed playing that beautiful looking game on the awful 360. It would be like going to test drive a new concept Ferrari, but when you show up it's a Ferrari motor stuffed into a ford mustang. No offense to Mustang owners I used to be one wink.gif
post #15851 of 16243
Come Oct 1 we will see Hapi.
post #15852 of 16243
I will definitely play the beta and then I have to wait 6, (SIX!!!) weeks to play it on next-gen here in Germany. frown.gif

So the beta is the warm-up, it maybe the Mustang but I dont care, I will look even more forward to the Ferrari then. wink.gif

Come on Hapi don't let us hanging there.

After the release on the 29th of November, I might take some days off at the beginning of December. Girlfriend is going to visit home, so I will have plenty of time to fill the bucket. lol
post #15853 of 16243
Yes, good point Neo... play the crap version and you'll appreciate the better version that much more. That thought crossed my mind as well.

I just remember that the BF3 beta was so underwhelming to me compared to BF2, that I regretted pre ordering BF3. I ended up liking BF3 way more so than BF2, but I didn't get any sense of how good the game was playing the beta. So I'm thinking it would be worse this time around since the game's major selling points are dependent on next gen tech. If I'm wrong and you guys are jizz'in all over yourselves because the beta is that awesome then I might check it out. Doubt that'll happen tho, you guys don't seem that easily excited.
post #15854 of 16243
For me, the beta was a chance to learn how to not suck while moving around Metro. And learn to use camptastic tactics like PKP+bipod in the smoke on B approach 1st MCOM. Back when it hid the muzzle flash so no one could even figure out where you were. Ahh, those were the good old days.

Even more important was being able to hook up my wired 360 controller to my PC and playing the beta on it. Once I set up the controls to my favorite southpaw style, I was able to learn how to fly. Didn't take too long, but the lessons learned were invaluable so on Day 1, I was able to hop in the sky and unlock stealth, flares, rocket pods in short order.

So I would say the beta is extremely useful in learning the mechanics of the game. Graphics shmaphics. And I don't care about 64 players vs 24. I could be thrown in a game of 4 on 4 and the mechanics are the same. So approach the beta like you want to learn HOW things are different.

This is why you'll probably still see me playing the BF4 beta when it's out and will be like "OMG ZATHS COMING". Nope, just seeing how the mechanics compare to BF3 smile.gif
post #15855 of 16243
I'm definitely playing the beta this time around. If it doesn't look like next-gen is dramatically better in every regard, I might just sell off both consoles and "pull a Zath" and go back to my Magnavox Odyssey.

I got nothing like that out of the beta. In fact I struggled with this game for months before I started to get a handle on things. I guess I'm slow learner. That's good advice you give though.

Oh I struggle mightily to this day with daywalking. I learned early on to camp hallways and so that's what I got good at. I was great at defending Metro because of it. I even figured out how to camp when attacking on Metro. I never really focused on learning how to be more aggressive until I finished service star 100 in the jet.
post #15858 of 16243
Yes, there are still aspects of this game that I struggle with too. You should be awesome at everything after a 1000+ hrs of playtime!

I think that's one of the many appeals of BF3, that it's so diverse, then good luck trying to master every aspect of this game.

I used the beta to learn the mechanics also. I came from primarily playing cod, so it was a pretty big adjustment for me. I remember playing metro for the first time, we were attacking and I died probably five times even before reaching the half way point to the mcoms. I dont even think we were being spawn camped. I still died a bunch in the very beginning of the full game release, wasted tanks, crashed choppers within 3 seconds of taking off, ran over countless mines (that couldnt be spotted) . I didnt unlock flares for the jet until zath probably had all his unlocks finished. I remember getting flares in a rush game and i got a short burst into the transport chopper defending caspian and ended up ramming the chopper but got points smile.gif

I plan on doing the same in this beta, except be better at walking this time around and better at vehicles, but i figure there will still be a learning curve, just not as steep. At least I will get to learn one map when the full game releases.
post #15860 of 16243
Did you just use vehicles and beta in the same sentence?!

DICE did a great job in BC2 with the beta - Port Valdez was the PERFECT map to showcase the game.

BF3 Beta not so much. Though I suppose you at least never froze during the beta :-P. PC got Caspian, and if you ask me, that would've been a great map for the beta. I'll bet DICE didn't want people going "it's too big and there's not enough people"...
post #15861 of 16243
yeah, i was under the impression that the bf4 beta map would have vehicles, the e3 footage showed helicopters, boats, and tanks...that is unless the 360 version gets heavily cut and we have to play that map infantry only.
post #15862 of 16243
That's the same thing that happened w/BF3's beta. Everyone got psyched for vehicular warfare.

As a matter of fact, Metro Rush originally had an LAV back during the alpha. It was removed due to being too OP on the map. Imagine running through there w/an LAV. How freakin' awesome would it be to get it up to the 3rd set of MCOMS?! EPIC!

Zath, you'd take a jet into the Metro tunnels if you could.

I am not sure if I will be joining in the Beta. I was garbage during the BF3 Beta, and I will probably be just as bad during the BF4 Beta. I didn't get good at the game for a while. Also, I'll be very busy playing GTA V and finishing up Batman: AC.

With all that said, I'll probably break down and play the beta. frown.gif
post #15864 of 16243
Fellow pc players -

So as of yesterday when i fire up bf3 it goes straight to campaign/single player mode instead of going to mozilla/battlelog which is driving me crazy! anybody have an idea how i can fix this?

Lol. Where jets can't fly, there's always MAVs. biggrin.gif

Also, to hear you tell it while playing, you never got good at this game. tongue.gif

Last night w/the group. Epic awesomeness as always.

Damavand Peak Conquest. Trail and I are in the tank owning it up as always. The other team completely sucks and we have all the flags. One enemy soldier goes out to Alpha (We're American so he's on the other side of the map). Trail and I in the tank, a couple others (were they AVS?) in jeeps all line up in the tunnels, just waiting for Alpha to go red. Then CHARGE!!!! I got hit markers on the guy who was proned on the flag, drove over him but didn't kill him, and backed up and BOOM!

Later in the match, same thing - one person is taking Alpha. Again, Trail and I sit in the tunnels. We even spotted the guy who was just standing perfectly steel on Alpha flag. While we waited, I lined up the shot. As soon as he capped Alpha, I fired and BOOM! HEADSHOT! We then charged in and took the flag. Wish I had it on video.

With no video proof we cant believe a word you are saying. No vid or it didnt happen.
post #15868 of 16243
That was hilarious, way more funny seeing it and waiting in anticipation in the tunnel with a large and loud tank with the guy on A totally oblivious of his surroundings. I wish I recorded also.

I only knew one if the two...mountain villain. I think I met him through spyder. But he talks and ptfo, not sure about the other guy. And I don't think he's on avs.
post #15869 of 16243
I remember the beta for BC2. I had no idea there were bases after the first construction site. I don't think I was ever in a game where anyone ever blew both Mcoms. Most just sat on that hill and sniped.

The big thing about betas is getting to see how big of as$wipes people can be exploiting flaws in the game. Remember all the MAV elevators and people out of bounds on Metro? Or the people in rocks or under the map? Boats under the map. When the medic was white. Good times.

Betas generally suck for actual gameplay. You end up with so many people just running around "learning" that the gameplay or PTFO idea just disappears.

Remember how many of the old BC2 crew we lost due to all the bugs when BF3 first dropped? And now we are splitting even more with the XB1 and PS4 split. I'm about to get all weepy.frown.gif...Just missing you guys. Me and the wife have been working on starting up a small business and time to do anything remotely recreational has been nonexistent. I'm hoping to have everything mostly on it's feet by mid-October so hopefully I can get a little time in on the beta and "learn" some people in the face before the game is released. Still on the fence about which system to get but I did get a new PC "for the business" that should be able to play the game. I just need a headset and I am good to go.

Yeah, we lost a lot of good AVS dudes going from BC2 to BF3. frown.gif

Fortunately, if you get a PS4, you'll be able to play with everyone except Lazy...which doesn't matter because he won't have Level 100 cheats until the year 2021! tongue.gif
