Battlefield Bad Company 2

The beta got started yesterday for Battlefield Bad Company 2 (for PC and I think 360). I've been a big fan of the Battlefield series since the beginning and decided to pre-order it on PC to get into the beta. It took a little bit to get into since I've been mostly dormant on PC FPS games for a while. Overall, though, I'm really loving it. It has the overall classic Battlefield feel to it and of course nearly everything being destructible. Lots of good stuff about this game so far in spite of the bugs and quirks that come with it being a beta.

Anywho, are there any other ATF'ers who are going to be hitting this up on PC? I know the ATF PC FPS (holy acronyms, Batman!) crowd is nearly non-existent these days, but I figured I would check. I don't really do FPS games on consoles, so I didn't really even consider it there--I'm a PC purist when it comes to FPS games.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2

I just ordered it off of Steam and am downloading the beta now. Might as well play some real FPS now that I've gotten Windows 7 installed in bootcamp on my lovely macbook pro

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Hopefully it runs well for you. So far, this is the most demanding PC game I've run to date. A lot of people are having performance issues, *but* -- it is beta and they have said they have a lot of optimizations lined up that aren't in the beta yet. We'll see. That said, it's the most FPS fun I've had in years and am having an absolute blast with it.

Unhappy Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Seems to run fine. This is pretty beefy for a laptop. But I have to say after playing for about 3 hours last night I'm not diggin it nearly as much as Modern Warfare 2 on my xbox. Either I suck using a mouse anymore for a FPS or maybe it's just that I forget how the BF games played..... I don't know. I mean I liked BF2 just fine.

Right now I'm almost wondering if Valve will let me cancel my preorder since it's not out yet so that I can pick up the Star Trek MMO instead.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Sorry, nothing against the XBox, but Swad + FPS + Gamepad = very bad mojo. I've spent almost 15 years perfecting the awesomeness that is me in PC FPS games and just can't bring myself to learn something new like a gamepad for an FPS game.

Grunt: Did you start liking it any as you went through the beta? I know you had a hard time getting into it in the beta--wasn't sure if it grew on you after playing a bit.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Played for about 3 hrs.LOADS of fun,but I'm as bad at BC2 as i was at MW2. Can't wait to play with everyone.

Traded in 3 games, got BC2 for $1.79, so I'm happy about that.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Yeah, I'm with Swad on the platform issue. I've tried multiple console shooters over the years and while they can be fun and co-op is usually a blast, I have always hated the multi-player head-to-head. It was almost invariably a situation where I was having fun because of the people I'm around *in spite of*, not because of, the game. While I'm sure that would be the case if I got the Xbox version, I'd like a game that I stand a chance of enjoying even if nobody's around if I'm dropping new game money on it.

Also, the PC version has Hamma, the Gryphon voice stand-in.
