A la the front page. Looks like EA are taking things back to good ol' dubbleyewdubbleyew 2 for the next proper PC Battlefield. I like it!

All the best maps in BF1942 were the pacific ones! Can't wait!

Meh.

WW2 is so boring. Not because of the "seen it, done it aspect" (which is overstated) but just because the variety of toys to kill people with is so limited.

Hmm I dunno, thinking back to 1942 and its various add-on packs, there were so many fantastic vehicles and weapons in the series that - if they did things right - it'd be the same with a new-tech versh.

Now DICE have a lot more money to play with, it'll be interesting to see what bits of tech leech into the series from their other stuff.

As someone said on EG, the main problem with BF2 was that it was all a bit serious and taken a bit too seriously online. I wanna see 'em put the fun back into this.

Pfft, it's Thursday for PSN types (and will be no doubt far more expensive too, thanks to the stupid real money prices...)

Aye I think the pricing's either 1200 points or 9.99. Course, 1200 points can mean anything depending on where you grab your points from. Looks like I'll be grabbing a few and pronto

I think this could be rather busy, the party system apparently works properly in game too according to a recent ListenUp podcast. Hurrah!

That will make a heck of a lot of difference. There's no fun whatsoever in Battlefield unless you can shout "You bastard!" at Clive Dunn as he rolls over you in a tank. Again.

Bumpity bump.

This is out tomorrow. Just been having a play around and it's very fun indeed. So wish they'd do the same with BF2 and port that over :D

Should be all over this tomorrow as it's my day off with the nipper. Likewise, would prefer modern theatre but tbh anything with Wake Island in it is a win win for me.

Let's hope the DLC doesn't completely fuck the whole thing when it (inevitably) arrives.

I might check this out tonight if I get chance, I think I'm about done with CoD5 multiplayer now. Or maybe I just need a break.

This game is so good it should be made illegal. That is all.

It's currently listed as 90,000 points to buy on the Xbox. Just checking the website...

Same there too. Might be because I haven't put Gold on yet.

Ah yes, 12000 with Gold activated.
