Battlefield 3 - Page 536

post #16051 of 16243
I think its flat ugly. Really feels old. Gameplay is there just graphically its meh. At least on PS don't have an Xbox anymore to compare and my PC probably sucks too much to run BF4. Vehicle controls are different. Had to change to Veteran controls otherwise your stick drives rather than triggers.

Knowing this is months old code and I'm going next gen at the end if the day smooths it all over.

What do you think so far? Granted hard to know how the new systems versions will be...

Nexus gets confused sometimes.

To be fair there are four BF threads active right now and most of the people I've played with are still on Xbox. So I know I'm in enemy territory here...biggrin.gif

And the other threads are fairly dead. On my BF4 thread for PC, there are 12 posts, and 5 of them are mine. lol

You have no idea how much the "same game, different thread for each platform" thing drives me crazy.

Agreed. I think on some other forums you might have to deal with fanboys who would bash another platform just because, whereas here it seems like we're all adults who wouldn't stoop to that level of childishness.

With about 45 minutes played, I got a very BC2 vibe. The after action score ticker, the ammo and Med boxes were the little BC2 size boxes, and the sound effects were similar. The audio was pretty good, was charging my headset so I'm interested to hear what its like in them when I get back home from running errands.

You'd be surprised. tongue.gif

There is sort of a neutral zone where people could post threads about cross platform games and keep it all in one place, but it doesn't seem like anyone knows it exists.

Just tell me they didn't swap the health pack and defib buttons again.

Does it feel noticeably different than BF3? It looks almost identical based on the trailers.

They changed all the controls. Vehicles use the stick unless you change it to veteran. Spot is now rt trigger on PS3. So I've been constantly opening the dam menu...health and ammo are the same though.

The beta looks like BF3 if it were vintage BF2 on PC. They really dumbed it down. Draw distance sucks but the menu system and sounds remind me of BC2. It feels good though. Bullet hits are meaty. Tanks sound like diesel engines and clank around. Almost forgot to mention, got in the chopper and it flew good. Controls were off. Oh yea, hold square to exit vehicles.

There are machine gun towers and decent cover but some routes are long open spaces.

I'm digging it so far. Will put a few hours in tonight but both game modes were fun and seeing the tower drop was cool. 999 times from now it will be meh but was neat so far.

They changed the controls again??

What do you mean by vehicles use the stick?

I'm assuming there's a way to just change everything back to BF3 controls?

Veteran was the closest control scheme to BF3 but was still different. You drive a tank like KZ drives a tank unless you change it if that helps explain it better.

I agree it's nice to not worry about platform so much in this thread. I haven't seen many other threads that are like this one in its friendliness to traitors like Nexus.

Downloading the beta now!

Hopping on in maybe 30-45 min.

Wife is aware of the beta.

Bucket prepared.

Let's do this.
post #16064 of 16243
I have it downloading also. Last I checked its at at 70% but I wont be on till after dinner.

I couldnt get a hold of a free premium for PS3 so sorry Nexus, I will see you later this week.
post #16065 of 16243
So what's it like on the Xbox?
post #16066 of 16243
For me it's like this

oh that's right i can do the beta for ps3 and compare/contrast. sweet.

What I like so far:
- colorblind mode having multiple types of colorblindedness
- feet don't stick through walls
- interactive switches on doors/windows/elevators
- multiple zoom options
- limited explosives - no ability to reload (at least I don't see any so far)
- parachute deploys quick and you take no damage
- playing peek-a-boo around corners
- Suicide bombing isn't rewarded

What I don't like:
- medpacks/ammo getting picked up on first use
- back button oopsies
- commo rose seems a little useless w/o voiceover or floating text
- down on the d-pad for vehicle countermeasures
- I dropped my picked up gun when I hit down on the d-pad to try something
- I still have to hit the stupid start button on the main screen or else deal with another obnoxiously loud repeat of the intro video.

What I'm not sure about:
- recoil is almost nonexistant.

Random things we noticed:
- no more sexy man pose
- you can wave at people with some of the commo rose options

Not a problem. Though I think being a suicide bomber negates your points. I think I lost 100 points when I blew up a tank and killed myself. Went by really quick though.
post #16070 of 16243
Zath, send me a PS3 friend request. Same as my Xbox GT, Lodolfan16. Or post your PS3 name so I can send you one.

Funny thing is about a month ago I was going to record a conversation with you and ask questions that I know how you would answer. I then would youtube the convo but my questions would of changed. Basically at the end of it all it would of sounded like you were going to play BF4 on the XB1. Never got around to being alone with you to do it.

Fixed. Must have read your evil mind! tongue.gif No need to hide your shame. We all knew what would happen. wink.gif

Oh wait, do i need premium for beta.?

What ever , I dont need to play a stinking beta. It's junk anyway.
post #16074 of 16243
you can play the beta in 2-3 days. Premium people have early access. As do people with MOH LE
post #16075 of 16243
I love Beta's
post #16076 of 16243
So, my son can't even download the beta because it's "unrated" and he has a junior account. Any way to get around this? confused.gif

What if you downloaded it with your account, could he then play under his own account then? Not sure how the ratings work so this might not even work also.

I don't mind conversations on all platforms in the same thread.

However, I might be nice to stickie revised PS4 and XB1 friend list threads. That way I can clean up my friend list starting fresh with BF4. ALSO, what will be happening with the platoon?

PS4 vs XB1 ... well I have been unable to find anyone with pre-orders left for PS4. I was lucky to find a XB1 pre-order at my local Target. They had 5 pre-order cards left. Otherwise XB1 is basically sold out as well for procrastinators like me. smile.gif I think both platforms are going to be great.

THNX for all of the beta reports. Looking forward to checking it out on Fri.

Bad company 3 is confirmed. New to me but just wanted to let everyone know.
post #16080 of 16243
Hopefully it doesn't cause consoles to freeze. Seriously the bf4 beta just froze my console as I blew up an enemy chopper. wtf dice
