Yeah, if you have the hardware to push it along at DX10 or DX11, it looks godly, but I saw a lot of people noting that DX9 was glitchy as hell in the alpha. I'm sure it will get ironed out, but I'm definitely aiming for a DX11 rig specifically for BF3.

If i'm able to run crysis well on my current rig, what are the chances I'll be able to run BF3?

considering crysis is a 4.5 year old shittily optimized game, there really is no relevance.

God, yes. Considering how many options you can change on each gun, I hope they pay attention during the beta.

God, yes. I enjoy BF games for the "choose your own adventure" arcadey, sandbox gameplay, but adding little details can't hurt, in my opinion.

I was under the impression that, in at least SP, the side opposite the US would be another well-equipped durka army (a la BF2), but I guess that isn't the case.

"Fact sheet" that popped up a while ago and has since been outdated a bit:









And it wasn't labelled as such, but the layout of this map looks like a 32 or 16 player version of Caspian Border. There's nothing in the RUS spawn, but in the US side, I count 3x M1A2's, 3x M1161's, 1x UH-1Y and 1x A-10.

BF2142 > Any other battlefield game.

As soon as they come out with a successor to BF2142 i will be all over it.

dam hope this shit can run on my laptop but its still a noob game, crosshairs and all that other unrealistic shit, whats the point of making games look that good if you skimp out on the realism and make it play like counter strike... i guess its what the kids want, making it harder would make them cry.

2142 was great fun. I was especially fond of raping the opposing team with a gunship.

Play Operation Flashpoint instead? The whole point of the BF games has always been an accessible, sandbox experience.
