Must be insane knowing that changing the release date is not an option, the release date is key to everything, 2 weeks before MW2 and they have millions of dollars set up for marketing on that date. daaamn

Yeah, I posted that earlier, but he never said if that was for SP or MP. I assumed MP, but asked and...never got a response.

This tweet seems to confirm it more clearly, though.

New, I think. People need to actually try this out before they freak out. I hope it doesn't affect disabling/health bleed.

Launch of the beta or launch of the game? I was thinking that they were treating the beta like a soft launch but now I'm not so sure.

I think they're like MGS4 or Heavy Rain. Really good single moments wrapped around a lot of shitty writing.

They can figure out they just don't believe in putting civilians in the game and I agree with them. What I would say is they should be releasing mod tools and if that happens let others put in civilians.

Huh? Your previous post mentions that DICE left civs out due to sensitivities about players killing them, and here you chalk it up to tech deficiencies. Make up your mind.

In any regard, civilians have never been in a battlefield game. That region of the world was rocked by the recent massacre, if any deliberate decision about cutting that kind of content was made, I would bet it was due to sensitivities around that event.

If they do Air Superiority, it needs be like 1942's Coral Sea (an actual, inspired objective) instead of 1943's Coral Sea (TDM, really).

Edit: I know, I should have quoted and replied to this back when it first posted. :P

They should have included it, it's definitely one of my favorite modes in 1943.

Pretty much. There are a lot of innovative and really original ideas in the stories. Now playing as a character who dies is played out, but in 2007? I loved the sequence where you play as the executed president and the soldier who dies in the nuke blast.

BC2 had nothing like that whatsoever. It didn't even succeed as a dumb action film kinda campaign. It was just bland from start to finish. I'm not sure what to think of what I've seen of BF3's story so far. In many ways it looks like an improvements with much better setpieces, but I don't know if DICE are capable of doing those epic setpieces/moments which really makes the Infinity Ward games memorable.

I know BF3 is mostly about MP, but if the SP isn't a huge improvement over BC2 I'll be pretty sad. It is half of the game, afterall.

Terrible hours but imagine if they were paid HOURLY? 72 hours a week of overtime. Too bad most are salaried in anyway or are considered "independent contractors" for some testers so they don't get overtime. I hope their bonus at the end pays for this.

then why isn't it a problem indors, it will just be annoying if some dumbshit is squad leader and places the thing somewhere in the open, otherwise you can just place it in the nearest building

the thing doesn't sound like a balance fix at all, it just sounds like another style over substance thing

Damn. And their release date is set in stone too. Maybe it probably wouldn't have made much difference but maybe they should have released a week later? First week of November?

Radar beacon sounds fine... I mean if it's gone when you die, it's pretty much just like regular old squad spawn, except now you have to parachute in lol.

Not as bad as I first imagined. No one will use it.

I'm really surprised about that. I figured that the order would be locked down by now, there would just be tweaking to the amount of points to unlock them.

Sounds good. If it HAS to be implemented then that seems like the only way it would work. =]
Now take out full squad spawning.

Well... it's no longer per kit. Now that things unlock per weapon, you kind of have to consider the context/usefulness of unlocks on a weapon by weapon basis, in addition to thinking about specs for kits.

Hopefully they are doing this... as you'd expect different order of unlocks for a sniper rifle vs SMG. And different specs for recon vs engineer, for example.

I'd think this beacon basically confirms they've ditched the full squad spawning... I mean it'd be completely redundant (and actually a disadvantage) otherwise. Unless I'm misunderstanding something?

True, that stuff probably still needs to be sorted out. I figured the gun order would be planned out by now though.

EA won't let them ship after MW3.
