I don't understand your second question. Is there someone at your door?

As to the first question, yes.

To summon Hark you need to say his name three times.....in the dark, while bunny hopping (or quick scoping)

I think HARK needs to do his own series of video guides where he spouts of strings of profanity about the stupid things that players do, always punctuated by his catchphrase "YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG, MOTHERF$#%ER!"

Are there no health packs in this edition? I haven't read up on everything. The little robot looks cool.

Assault class gets medpacks as well as the defibrillator. However, the grenade launcher uses same utility slot as the medpacks, so not every assault will have medpacks all the time.

On the squad issues:

HOW WILL SQUADS WORK IN THE RETAIL VERSION OF BATTLEFIELD 3 ON PC/XBOX 360/PLAYSTATION 3?

Since the Open BETA we’ve added more advanced functionality to manage your squad. You will be able to browse and join specific squads through the squad screen. You can see all players that are in a specific squad as well as who’s playing as lone wolf. As a squad leader you can set your squad to private as well as kick players from the squad.

On console you will also be able to choose if you want the active VoIP channel to be team or squad and invite friends to your squad. You will also be able to mute any player on your team through the scoreboard.

Why does assault have defib/medpacks? That's the only thing I don't like. I want to be a super duper support guy. Engineer should have ammo and support should have defib/medpack. Assault should have nothing, um, because they are dumb.

With the implementation of suppressing fire the support class is now closer to its real-life LMG wielding counterpart. This class does support by fire, keeping the enemies heads down while assault class closes with and destroys the enemy. Giving the support class defib packs would kind of force them to be nearer the assault class, negating their "support by fire" purpose.

Yeah, but Assault is supposed to be concentrating on shooting stuff and getting the objective. Not lollygagging around throwing medpacks into people's rear ends and shocking stuff. THATS MY JORB. THEY TOOK MY JORB!

has anybody seen this?

a higher resolution optional install is included on disc 2 of BF3 on the 360 according to this
http://kotaku.com/5847781/battlefield-3-for-xbox-360-has-something-special-on-the-second-disc

as said,its optional,but it will apparently make the game look better
Quote
According to a report from Gamerzines, Battlefield 3's second disc will also include an installable higher resolution texture pack that will make the whole thing look a lot prettier than what's streaming off the optical disc. That option is "voluntary," Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Liu says.


i know it has a comment from BF3s producer but not sure if this has been confirmed or if its a rumour,sounds too good to be true TBH

a little more on that High Resolution Pack that the 360 version comes with

Kotaku

Quote
I thought the first screenshots of Battlefield 3 running on an Xbox 360 looked fine, but then, they were probably using the optional high-resolution texture pack.

Those who don't use that pack, well...you may want to find a way to make it work. Because Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Bach has given the vanilla version of the game a pretty plain nickname.

"The thing with the 360 is that you need to be able to give consumers a game where you don't have to install it on a hard drive, because there are 360s without a hard drive. So we need to give you the option of installing it, rather than just demanding it. You could call it a 'standard-def' version for the 360 if you don't have a hard-drive."

Note that loads of Xbox 360 shooters technically run in "standard definition", Halo 3 probably the most famous among them. But for one of the key men behind one of the year's biggest games to come out and use the term so openly suggests that, yeah, it's not going to look that great if you don't install the textures on your HDD first.



no idea if the beta had any of this high res pack in it,the beta was 1.3gig...hopefully it didn't,then i can expect the game to look nicer icon_biggrin

Most likely out.  While I'd like to play both BF3 and MW3, the COD series has already proven its worth to me over the years and so as I'm forced to choose just one, MW3 wins out for me.  I worry that BF3 is too dependent upon teamwork, and while that's great when playing with a good group of friends, it doesn't lend itself well to playing with randoms.  Plus I despise vehicles in games.  Ever since the tanks in W@W I've had an aversion to vehicles in FPS MP.

It is entirely possible I could get a copy for Christmas, but not right at release.
