Now if you tell me DA:O is as good as Dead Space 1 or Alan Wake I may have to reconsider. Those games were AMAZING.

Well look at what your options here are. Bad Company was sorta meh when I played it. Personally I like BF3 a lot better. Since you have BF3, I don't think you would be playing BC2 that much, but who knows you might. I just view BC2 as obsolete when compared to BF3.

Spore is fun for a while, then gets old. You said you dislike non-online stuff, so this ones out for sure.

DA:O is solo only, but the storyline and game is dang good if you ask me. It is one of the better single player games I have ever played.

So if it were me, it would definitely be DA:O. In your case, BC2 might be just as good being that you aren't a huge fan of single player.

So played a few maps went like 2:1 kdr overall. Got 2 or 3 wins. YAY.

Playlist:

Hold Me Close - Flux Pavilion
Rage Valley - Knife Party
Internet Friends - Knife Party
Antidote - Swedish House Mafia/Knfie Party
Invaders Must Die - The Prodigy
Omen - The Prodigy
Thunder - The Prodigy.

I know, I didn't listen entire to dubstep. It surely worked though.

I don't think AEK-971 isn't good as it used to be even on foregrip + heavy barrel. I kept losing firefight against another assaults with guns like L8something and M41A3. I swear my gun would sometimes have terrible recoil even on burst fire while my opponents have laser beam guns. Sometimes they kill me so fast it's almost like they only shot me once. Constantly losing firefight puts me in bad mood and I don't usually play well if I'm in a bad mood. SCAR-L seems to be pretty OP. I got killed by that gun plenty of times.

I agree that the AEK is not as powerfull as it used to be, it could kill at very long ranges while now it cant.
Anyhow, the AEK is one of the best, if not the best rifle for close engagements, if you are loosing firefights against a scar-l and L85A2 at close range, its entirely your fault, those guns have the slowest rate fo fire, specially compared to the AEK which has one of the fastest, only topped by the FAMAS if im not mistaken.

If you are loosing firefights with the AEK at mid-long range, its because its not where the gun's strength is at.


The Scar-L, isnt OP in my opinion, you may be getting killed alot by it because its a new weapon.
The Scar-L is a very good fully automatic long/Mid range gun, i may say its even better than the AK-74M, but its weak at close range, while the AK-74M is better at close range than the Scar-L.

Yep, that's a reason. Most of my losses are mid-range firefights.

Hey guys wondering if I could get some help on the FXAA injector here. I've got my settings below. What i'm experiencing is some jagged edges from far off distances. I cant get a pic right now since im at work but its not even close to postAA at high and 2xMSAA. There's pretty good blurr up close with the edges but it seems to be the objects >100m that it starts to get choppy. Its almost as if when you have a set of hand railing like on seine crossing, that some of the rails disappear and the other ones are like thick and others are thin and it just looks bad... Wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction of fixing this issue. I'm pretty sure its the fxaa settings and presharpen, not sure what presharpen means...

Right now I'm loving the injector! The colors are SOOO great now! Just need to tighen up some alasing.
