Semi-closed beta, public beta in a few weeks I believe. Here's some screens I took earlier today. :)

thanks for the pics viper :thumbsup:
but i still don't think this game will be as good as BF2. all these stupid sci-fi weapons sound ridiculus, and this "titan" mode sounds like crap. just give me a BF with some modern real-world weapons, maps like "strike at karkand" and no stupid bugs like cartillary!

EA sucks. Their last good game was NFS: Porsche Unleashed. Has anyone played Fight Night Round 3 on Xbox 360? It sucks. What about NFS: Most Wanted? Slow as shit on the 360. BF2? Don't even get me started.

EA is dead to me.

let me guess, you dont like Microsoft too? Sadly, EA = MS in the game world, there is little/no getting away from them.

I have no problems with Microsoft, just EA. Their quality has gone down the tubes when they started pushing game releases out the door too quickly.

just look at the sims expansions to get an idea of how EA has turned their focus from making good games to making games that sell :thumbsdown:

EA has always been about making games that sell. Recently they have forced that mentality on their development houses, which in turn have to turn out crappy game after crappy game because people buy them. Distribution companies have development houses by the balls (and in EA's case, they are either owners or majority shareholders of most of the development companies), because there's no other ways to get your games out to market.

Yes, Fight Night Round 3 is lame, but BF2 still rocks 8) It's still the best FPS.

As far as 2142 goes: I'm not really in to the futristic stuff, but if anyone wants a sneak peek, there's been a torrent out for awhile.

From what I understand though, its multiplayer only, no single player, so the torrent wont do you any good?

I haven't tried it myself, but looks like a lot of people have.

Why don't you guys like it?
The tutorials suck. It doesn't tell you how to punch. I ended up button-mashing and won a few fights. Plus the announcer said "haymaker" about 45,394 times per round (which became really annoying).

Think BF1942 vs. BFV. Same exact situation, i.e. same engine, but spruced up and requires a little bit better PC.
