    I play BF3 only a few times a week for maybe 2 hours each time I play. Think getting premium, but is it worth the $50? Not sure if it matters but I play on PC

    This all depends on which dlc's you allready have.

    If you dont have any of the dlc's you save money on going premium. i did because i want all the dlc's and i play about the same amount as you. Some times more. Some times less.

    If you allready have like 2 or 3 dlc's ignore premium and just buy the dlc seperately

    There was a problem whilst updating your game. One or more files that requires an update may be in use. If the issue persists please restart your computer and resume the update."

    So far, I've restarted my PC, did nothing, tried to use the Repair feature, did nothing. Google'd around a bit, I'm not finding anything relevant to this particular error. Anyone have a clue what to do?
    Are you sure this is not the case?

    So, I have a problem. Namely, this game is a First-Person Shooter, and I'm the guy who brings a knife to a gun fight.

    I really, really, really, really, REALLY like doing knife takedowns in this game. Maybe it's the dog tags, or the look of surprise and panic followed by a garbled choking wheeze, or the thrill of the hunt, or just an unhealthy obsession with rear entry. My personal best was something like 90+ knife kills on 64-player Noshahr TDM during a 1000 ticket match.

    Anybody know of video tutorials or hints/tricks for knife takedowns? I want to hone my art even further.

    While pretending to be an assassin in MW2 I always used that perk for running faster, which exists in BF3 too. But that seems too obvious, and you're probably using it already. Playing as recon and spotting lots of enemies before going on a spree could be a nice idea.

    Battlefield 3: Aftermath DLC launched

    Anyone still playing Battlefield 3? I've read from a report (http://www.gamearena.com.au/news/read.php/5117372) that DICE launched the fourth downloadable content dubbed as "Aftermath" for PS3 gamers with Premium membership almost a week ago. PC and Xbox 360 gamers are expected to receive this DLC this week, although the exact date hasn't been revealed yet.

    Anybody who have already played it here?

    I'm on PC so I don't get it till tomorrow :{
    Quote from the article you posted:
    Xbox 360 and PC premium members will gain access next Tuesday (the 4th) and everyone else can grab it on December 11th on PS3 and December 18th on 360 and PC.
    This will most-likely get closed because there is a megathread here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ield-3/page179 It hasn't been used in quite a while though.

    Can sorta relate lol, the people I used to play with all the time just don't log on anymore so and I'm just not a big fan of doing FPS solo.

    Me neither, I can play for an hour or so but then I just need to log out. BF3 is all about teamwork so playing alone sucks.

    Why is EA so bad at everything!? So many people are playing, and I can't even get my game to update.

    At least you won't have to download it twice. Apparently my download of it this morning didn't stick, so I'm now downloading 4GB on my crap connection again.

    The first download was just a normal patch because I had to download 2 things also. I'm finally downloading aftermath!

    I'm afraid the only expansion I have is Back 2 Karkand, I was planning on getting premium but after my friend moved to the other side of the world I invested that money elsewhere (read: candy, always candy). But thanks for the invitation

    No, maybe you did download the same thing twice >.<

    I just played for a little bit, and I LOVE scavenger mode! It is so much fun! The weapons you pick up usually only have 1 magazine, maybe 2 if you are lucky, so you really have to pick your shots. I wish there was a deathmatch version though, it's only conquest. Still very fun!

    I finally got to play some. The crossbow is awesome! Some friends and I played some Scavenger, which isn't too bad actually, to unlock it, and then we went on a spree in Metro with it. SO MUCH FUN!
