    The sad thing is that you'll have to turn all those amazing graphics down to zero for multiplayer... because you can't see shit through all those lightning/dust/smoke effects.

    No, the sad thing is people like you do that.

    People that turn settings down so they can't see smoke, dust and even high grass and bushes from a distance are just exploiting imo.

    Don't play war sim's if you don't want to be in a war environment.

    I remember people used to do that in old Rainbow Six games, turn water and grass off so they could see if someone was hiding in them, very cheap tactic.

    Yea, I think they've taken that into consideration. Anything else would be silly.

    I love all that dust, sunlight, debri and smoke. It makes the kills you get that much more satisfying.

    You guys that turn it off must have some boring gaming experiences.

    I meant it looks a lot better, seems more of a destruction of buildings, etc.

    The thing is you won't get many kills if you can't even see me

    I'd prefer to play with full graphics settings myself but it's just not viable if others can turn it off.

    I'll have to wait till I get the game myself to see the graphics. Too hard to tell looking at YouTube videos.
    I run Crysis & Crysis 2 on max/ultra, and let me tell you, that's going to be very hard to beat

    Crysis 2 doesn't even use DirectX 11 atm, BF3 has much better graphics and animations, coming from someone who loves great graphics.

    Upgraded my rig last month because I knew this beast was gonna rick roll my old one (even though it was state of the art like 3 years ago).

    Can't wait to sh*t my pants at the awesome details I see in the previews.

    DICE, I salute you.

    Looks good - It will steal me away from wow if it comes between large patches or an x-pack

    BFBC2 pulled me away when wow was slow too haha

    ^^^ This

    Crysis is an old game, yes it was ahead of its time but there are games with better gfx out now and Crysis 2 is not one of them. Crysis 2 is a pure console port, meaning it does not have dx11 and it's gfx are dumb down because it has to be able to run smoothly on a crapbox 360 and a PS3.

    BF3 will be the new standard to beat.

    If I'm in a BFBC2 game from the start of the round I will be in the top 3 easily and I don't play with my settings turned down so I can see through the INTENDED CONTENT.

    Crysis 2 will be getting DX11 through a patch soon if i remember right, on PC that is.

    I agree with you on not disabling graphic settings just to gain an advantage in public multiplayer.

    The minimum specs for this game are hinting at the fact your aren't going to be able to turn a lot of this stuff off. So it's either your going to have a decent up-to-date computer (at least built within the last 1-2 years) or your going to be jumping everywhere and not know wth is going on.

    Recommended system requirements for Battlefield 3

    OS: Windows 7 64-bit
    Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
    RAM: 4GB
    Graphics card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850
    Graphics card memory: 1 GB
    Hard drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

    Those are recommended, not minimum, and it's all conjecture at this point. No official word has been posted.

    And here I was going to make a thread asking what was so special about Battlefield over Call of Duty. I guess I have my answers.

    Hope they do make it for console though, I don't have the money/space to invest in a real desktop (or the desk).
    Be reasonable. You might be right, you could be wrong, but either way most people won't change their minds if you keep shouting at them.

    OFC it will be for console.

    Just not as pretty.

    Exactly this. Don't believe anything until it comes from DICE.

    I have seen and played Crysis 2 on max settings, and it looks awesome, no doubt, but videos like this make me believe it's not gonna be a competitiion... but I'm sure you've seen it already.
    On a side note, recently played BC2 on max settings on a 40 inch screen, and hell that already looked NEAT.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't BC2 the first of them to have destructible environment? (only talking PC games)
    No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.
