Are you serious? I really have to play BF3 from a browser!? - Page 6

Several of the play4free games are launched in browsers, and I don't want to associate the cheapness with those games with the monster that is BF3.

I have yet to see how it fares going into "Offline mode" I doubt this game will be playable with no internet connection, even though it has a Singleplayer that has absolutely no need for it..

Just too bad I guess.
I guess Iracing sucks too then?

The only complaint the VAST majority of you have is that it's a browser...Not that it's actually a DRM...Not that it's tracking your IP...Your S/N...Because it's doing so in an invasive manner.

If you don't like it...There are VERY FEW games you'll be enjoying in the future.

If only Ubisoft had EA's brain.


EA does it better atleast. Ubisoft is terrible, I had a few games I wasn't to get start playing due to the stupid auth is down many times. I got sick of it and will never buy Ubisoft games.

Can any one pull the plug on their modem and see if they can launch the single player aspect of the game then? Do you have to go to the browser to lauch every part of the game? I though that was going to be just for the multiplayer, but now it sounds like everything will be launched through the browser. If that is the case then that is exactly the same DRM that people are screaming over in the news threads. I could really careless as long as I know about it before I buy the game.

If I decide to get the game I will be playing primarily multiplayer anyway...but it would be nice to know if I could install it on a laptop and take it to my Inlaws house in the woods with no Internet of anykind.

Two things bug me...

1) Battlelog addins do not work with 64bit browsers which makes it really annoying.

2) The requirement of Origin to launch when you want to play the game. You have the battlelog which has all the resources you need including friends and stats, but you still have to run Origin which is a waste of computer cycles IMO.

I was involved in the Alpha/Beta...And while they were testing it, it actually linked your origin profile permanently to the game...

I don't actually know how invasive the DRM is but, I do know your IP is linked...S/N...And since you're technically on origin, all of your origin information is linked as well.

The way it was explained to me is that it's basically as invasive as an MMORPG, they have your personal stuff, CC#, IP, S/N, Etc...I highly doubt it goes beyond that.

I'm waiting for my 590 tomorrow to go and pick-up my pre-order so, I can't comment on what the release completely does beyond the above...Which again, is the same thing Steam does or any MMORPG.

exactly, why the hell would we need Origin when battlelog is sufficent to start the game.

This is EA pushing their bloat on to us.

Alright thanks for the info. I bought a hard copy so they won't have my credit card info. Is this the new wave of gaming where I can't give the game to a friend once I play it?

Just tried it, with no internet connection the game launches like any other should, and you can play Campaign without a hitch it seems.

Sweet...

thanks, I'll probably pick it up this weekend or next. Sounds like there are still some issues they are working on.
