I had the same thing happen to me. Ad the beginning and ad in the middle of the video. :(

As for the game, will prob buy this. 1200 MP seems fair.

The later PC release of 1943--the $15 download hits consoles in June and computers in September--is because of the extra development time needed to bring the previously console-only Frostbite technology to the PC and "create a proper PC version of Battlefield 1943 and not a console port," Van Dyke previously stated.

One thing that definitely won't change, however, is the three class limit. And it's doubtful that any changes made to the PC version would come to the console editions.
...count me out then. I mean... they're still considering removing regen, but not adding medics? What the hell?

...And when pressed on BF3...

Shack: That said, I have to ask, where's Battlefield 3?

Van Dyke: There is no Battlefield 3 [laughter]. That's just a rumor! Where's that PDF? It doesn't exist! [laughter]

[People]just need to be patient and wait. DICE isn't going anywhere. There's going to be more games, and I think that those games are really gonna hit what it is that people are seeking from a Battlefield game in the next generation.
Seriously, Van Dyke.. stop teasing. I don't want the market over saturated with core installments into the franchise. I don't need a new Battlefield game every year. I'm glad that EA doesn't seem to be pushing that direction quite as hard as Activision has with Call of Duty... but it's been what... five years?

I think we're due for a damned sequel.

I agree completely. Screw this watered down BF nonsense...I want a real sequel to one of my favorite fps ever.

loads of ppl are gonna buy this and it'll be a blast as usual. also it's kind of ringing in the digital distribution era. about time, as i have several hundred game discs lying around and it starting to get annoying.

very much looking forward to this.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (2 Hours ago)
