    Posted: Feb/15/2011 at 6:49am
Hey guys i am a huge Battlefield fan they have been making a great online multiplayer game for the last couple years. Wonder if anyone that gets Game Informer or is also a fan of the Battle Field series?? I have been playing since the original Battle Field with the original x-box. I picked up Bad Company 1 and loved that, then came Bad Company 2 and add ons like the the Vietnam extension and it is such a fun game. It surpasses Call of Duty by far and the engine and game play are put together way better (actually need skill to be good at it unlike COD)
Hate me or not I have a hate for COD because i think its just a fast pushed game just to sell quickly and make money. Unlike that game developers at DICE that have been putting out amazing games, Why? because they take the time and are not looking for fast releases but for the very next edge in the gaming industries. Checking out the graphics for this in Game Informer it seems to look like the best yet and the new Frostbite engine looks promising. Are their any other battle field fanatics out their??? Gamertag is I viereck I


A little info?
Battlefield 3 will feature the maximalist combined arms battles that made the series popular across single-player, co-operative and multiplayer modes. It will reintroduce several elements absent from the Bad Company games, including fighter jets, the prone position and 64-player battles on PC, while consoles will support 24 players.[2][3]

A new animation system will allow players to "drag fallen comrades into safety and mount weapons on almost any part of the terrain."[4] The destructible environments of DICE's Frostbite engine will also be in use.

(If my school didnt block every site known to man i would have gotten some info from EA games itself. www.ea.com/battlefield3 theirs the link if anyone is interested.)

I think Battlefield definitely takes more strategizing and over military aptitude as opposed to other. its definitely not fast paced game where you respawn and run.

Upcoming games look sick. Battlefield 3, uncharted 3, killzone 3, dead space 2 is fantastic.

I love technology.

@bhswrestler150 In the Game Informer artical it put the release date at end of 2011 with MW3 and the other big hits. On everyone stoping playing, the replayablity issue with everything being unlocked by level 22 makes it hard to continue playing after that. I went to the max just because I wanted to play all the way, but alot of my freinds stopped after 22.

I am looking forward to this game also, along with Gears 3, and maybe the new Modern Warefare if it isn't too bad(might sell quickly like I did with MW2).

Wasn't a fan of bc2 or moh which dice produced so i will be not expecting much from this release. I will be at least checking out a demo/beta of some sort.

Both games take skill, COD requires fast twitch and reactionary style play. Battlefield requires more teamwork and strategy (which is why I like it) but saying COD doesn't take skill isn't true. 

"It will reintroduce several elements absent from the Bad Company games, including fighter jets, the prone position and 64-player battles on PC, while consoles will support 24 players."

Wooo I loved the jets when I played BF2, and 64 players is awesome (yet another reason to play on PC!) 

Gotta admit though, the game I am really looking forward to (and have been for like 2 years now) is diablo III. COME ON blizzard hurry up.

before this starts into a COD vs BF flame war can anyone recommend a good 1st person or over the shoulder single player game for the PC with a good story line, inteligent AI, and something a bit longer than COD single player. I have played the F.E.A.R series and loved it.

BTW they are coming out with F.E.A.R that looks sick

This genre of games is getting really old IMO.

They are all essentially the same and each release really is no different from the last.

OK, so CoD is more close quarters and Battlefield is more open with vehicles, but thats the only difference.  Their single player campaigns are really similar and both complete crap.

I'm really bored of the current trend in the video game industry of pumping out sequels to make a quick buck.

Diablo II looks cool, but since Blizzards acquisition they have really gone downhill.  I was looking forward to SC2, since Star Craft is really the game that got me into gaming in the first place, but I haven't cared to play it at all after playing the beta.  I feel once Diablo II comes out I'll see its nothing special also.

I think the only game I'm looking forward to and will probably actually enjoy is Portal 2.

@Slushie, the game is a new genre in itself they have a brand new engine to run the game and have a team 4x bigger than they did with Bad Company 2. The new engine makes it a revolutionary game so to speak from what i heard really. The characters looks almost life like the destruction you can do almost any building is an amazing feat to itself just like in BC2. But this time with frostbite 2.0 (new engine) you can literally take down hole building (almost any building) watch windows shatter around you as RPG's hit building, the audio in the game is just gonna be crazy, and it looks just plain sick. When saying these are getting "old" you must not be a fan of it because of course their are a ton of games but each year as the technology gets better the games become sooo much more well put together. The guys at DICE have been taking their time on this game and pushed the release date to the end of the year so they have had a really good length of time to work on this (including the fact the team is 4x larger).

As for PC gaming im not really into anything like that (runescape haha them were the days) grant it PC games can hold a much larger player capacity i think what they come out for the 360 is really amazing to. I think what i am looking forward to is seeing all the stuff i loved from BC2 (Bad Company 2) the sound quality is going to be better (focusing alot on this on this game) which in BC2 it was so lifelike sounding and with some good quality head phone you really turn the gaming experience up and you get into the game way more.

When you say "pumping out games for a quick buck" you just explain the COD series each game they put out is not much different from the last maybe more customizable things sure but the game play and stuff is essentially the same. With DICE and BattleField 3 they went as far as creating a brand new game engine that now one even thought of doing.

Wow, Battlefield 3 looks pretty amazing. I have to agree that the FPS war genre is getting pretty old.
Diablo 2 and Star Wars: The Old Republic are what I am looking forward to.

@legalboarding i think the release date is at the end of the year actually so gonna have to wait.

Yea the games are getting kinda old but this is a new engine and new generation of war games, im sure its gonna set the bar really high for next year they always do. Its way better put together than COD period.

I'm definitely looking forward to this game. I never played any of the other Battlefield games, but this looks like it will be a good one to start with.

Have any of you looked at Brink at all? It looks like it will be a pretty cool game too, although in a different way than Battlefield.

If you are waiting for diablo 2 to come out, rejoice! It has been out for oh, 12 years now. Diablo III, however, is not likely to be released in 2011 :( Blizzard still makes some quality games, I am definitely buying D3 on launch day.

Can't wait for battlefield 3! The Bad Company games have just been tiding me over for this one. The battlefield games also have a lot more strategy to them then COD.

Who ended up getting this game?

I did it is amazing. I was just playing today and saw two dudes through my scope. I was like oh god started firing but my crosshair was off to the side. I waited to the initial recoil was finished (by accident) and then swiped right through the heads and killed them both in one fluid motion.

really good game, i like it, the controls are really hard to master while playing both MW3 and BF3, they're so different because BF3 is a lot more realistic looking and feeling, i do think MW3 put more details into weapons though, and I love the campaign, I don't get the BF3 campaign as much, it's a lot harder but still has a fun story!

Been enjoying mw3, but bf3 is $30-$35 at a bunch of places for black Friday, so I might grab it on the cheap.
