Gamespot has a pretty cool 15 minute video up that does a pretty in depth summary (developer preview) of what Battlefield 2142 has in store for pc gamers.

I am pretty crappy at linking to Gamespot stuff, so if this link is off a bit, you may need to do a search.

I think it sounds fun as hell, personally.  If you don't mind watching it kinda small, it streamed pretty good for me.

Gamespot Link maybe

Ok, the Rifle Rocket = awesome.  I love the concept.  I'm also a big fan of collecting dogtags.  The humiliation factor with the tags is gonna be HUGE!  The drones will change the gameplay in the same way that it changed Tribes 2.  I like the idea of field upgrades - you can try out the weapons above you without committing to them on a permanent basis.  Airborne assaults on the Titans sounds like a blast.  Overall, it looks like they are putting real thought into making this VERY different from BF2.   Thanks for the link Lockdown!

Is this totally a multiplayer game?

The other Battlefields had some SP elements to them although MP is where they shine, just wondered if this was the same formula.

Yea, I suspect they'll have the same Single-player bot game.  Can't confirm, but there is no reason to cut it.

Ugh.  The SP experience in previous games was just annoying, with navigationally-challenged aim-bots that were stupid but had superhuman aim.

No I'm not buying this. I did BF 2 and that's enough, weak patches, suck ass expansion packs, and unbalanced weapons/armor/jets. I learned my lesson this time through.

I doubt anyone would deny that the game was really poorly coded, but MY GOD man, the fun!

Learned my lesson, as well.  Waiting for Quake Wars and UT2K7.

Agreed. They'd pick me off from across the map, but use no tactics or anything that made any sense, be running the wrong way, then suddenly drop to prone position and deliver a killshot.

EA has used it's Drunken Master AI System (tm) for more than just shooters. Enjoy it in sports games, racing games, etc etc..

I love the Drunken Master AI System! Oh, wait, no I don't. They're part of the reason why I don't play any EA games ever.

So in for this... I'd imagine BC will probably have a server up that you guys are more than welcome to join in on.  The Battlefield games have always held pretty long legs with the IRC crew.

Now, the bet we have right now is whether this game will be poorly coded enough to where even my monster new rig can't run it with full details.

If you are interested in Quake Wars, check out my QuakeCon article on the main page.  It is pretty sweet, and the demo is still feature incomplete.  I've not seen any bots, nor will there be any Singleplayer. No word on whether bots will be included.
