    I disagree. I loved the campaign. There is a lot of scripted events/fight scenes where you just hit a few buttons, but it's still a lot of fun. The plot isn't too bad either, I actually got into the story quite a bit towards the end.

    After using a holographic sight and silencer on my sniper rifle for so long and becoming so used to it I've lost all ability to use a scope efficiently. Woops.

    What are some weapons you wish/wished to be in battlefield 3?

    I was hoping they had a MP5.

    Well I decided to give MW3 a chance alongside BF3 in my games library.

    I just couldn't continue after a few minutes of multiplayer in MW3. After playing BF3, the graphic elements all seem so cartoon-ish and strange.

    I have a soft spot for CoD: MW and even Modern Warfare 2, but I just can't get into MW3.

    The FOV was the only issue in MW3 for me. I don't care about graphics if the game is fun, but the FOV just really hurts your eyes and looks so retarded after playing a lot of BF3.

    Also yeah, was really hoping for an MP5 in BF3 (none of this MP5K shit, a proper MP5). Maybe in one of the later expansions it'll be a new weapon.

    So, was there a way to launch BF3 without starting a browser? That 'standalone' thing uses internet explorer. I don't play my demanding games with an internet browser in the background for a reason. I tried tabbing out during an MP game an killing FF, but the game crashed a couple of minutes after I tabbed back in :/.

    Anyone know if a refund would be possible with less than 1hr of playtime? The game is probably decent, but this first impression I've gotten has been utter shit for me.

    If you can't run a browser and a game at the same time you're not gonna be able to play the game at all. You should've looked at the system requirements before you paid for it dude

    You can launch the game from the browser and then just close the browser once the BF exe opens up I think, the crash was probably unrelated.

    Refund possible, doubt it, pretty stupid to refund for such bad reasons though. If you actually enjoy BF games just tough it out with Battlelog. You'll get used to it and you'll like it, we were all reluctant at first. There's almost 0 performance hit from having a browser open in the background so that's no excuse really.

    Just finished BF3's single-player campaign and noticed that Dima looks exactly like a russian actor, Oleg Taktarov:
    Dead-eyes aside, the character models in this game are really nice. I've never paid much attention to them before, but holy shit.

    What are your machine specs, also call me cheap but windowed mode with BF3 is much better than fullscreen.

    BF3 isn't obscenely demanding, as long as you can at least run it on low at a playable framerate, then you can leave a browser in the background quite happily. I leave my addon-laden firefox running in the background when I play, taking up around 500MB of my 4GB RAM (need more RAM, seriously). The game stutters a bit, but it runs still.

    Yeah, going to order 8GB of DDR3 RAM this week. Probably go with Corsair as OCZ don't do RAM now.

    Seriously? Didn't notice them drop out. Oh well, I've just been cheap with it slightly with Crucial RAM, I don't OC RAM or anything so it's not a massive concern

    I don't really understand why we can't change loadouts when alive.
    When I'm dead, I don't worry about chaning my loadout, I worry about getting back into the fight. It's only when I'm alive and in a safe area that I want to change my loadout for when I respawn.

    I've ran into probably 5 or 6 out of 74H's of gameplay.

    So they're common, but not enough to make you rip out your hair.

    The idiots in the game that don't hack do that enough for you.

    I've landed my jet while it was burning, on the airfield in Gulf of Oman(SU-34). Repaired it, took off, and shot down the helicopter who had a boner for locking onto me every time I took to the air with his AA missiles.

    Though there are very pissing me off moments where the jet when slowing down, just kind of... Sails, instead of going with gravity and dropping. It kind of just.. Noses up and floats. It's made me crash so many times when i was burning, it pissed me off.

    Jets do seem too floaty. When a jet is disabled, it shouldn't be able to float away, it should nose dive into the ground like a real jet.

    My friend claims that EA or whoever controls bans has a 1 click ban system. Basically (he says) that a person reports an alledged hacker, and EA just goes in and bans them without really looking into it.

    He can't pull his source and just says "they are talking about it on machinima" except when I look on google I can't find ANYTHING on it.

    Is my friend incorrect as I think he is?

    Instead of servers that don't tolerate the use of curse words they should ban for the use of the words noob, nub, and scrub. Someone calling me a dumbass stupid fuck won't make me mad but the use of any of those three words just means that person is a huge douchebag in the first place for using those words and should be banned.
