Really, nobody mentioned Origin? that's not what I remember. Let's see:

http://tos.ea.com/legalapp/WEBTERMS/US/en/PC/ CTRL F, search for 24, and you'll find it there under Chapter 5 Content and Entitlement Availability. </3 EA. </3.
(and here we see that Stealth Pyros quotes EA's TOS instead of Origin's TOS, while talking about Origin)

It's simple and i know someone is going to bring up the this point (in an idiots voice):
"but you're only clicking on one more icon, whats the big deal mannnn" <-- just shut up don't bother posting. convenience that's the answer pure and simple.. what happens when you knock down one domino, the rest fall and i don't want it to get to the point where i have to "only" click 6-7 icons to play 6-7 games
This sure sounds like a rant against Origin and not EA.

Just downloaded it and tried it out. Having forgot that i bought it (tried to return it). It's ok, i played the MP beta and wasn't impressed at all. Single player is alright, i like the details on the MK18CQB (M4 commando basically), you can switch ROF too which is cool. There is prone and peak/lean in SP also. It's just OK i'm hoping it gets me into beta early. Sounds are good, graphics are not as good as BC2 on SP.

Just got on MP just to check it out again and signed it and it said my Limited edition has been added to my account

well i don't want to use origin, i've never hidden that fact but i don't have a reason to rant against origin.

that was both stealths and my mistake, i KNEW he posted the Ea ToS, but i didn't realize he was talking about Origin as opposed to EA.

As for the post about origin deleting games, if its in Ea ToS to delete games at their discretion, whether or not i use Origin, Steam or any other digital manager it still sucks that they can just delete their games. the reason i used origin in that example is because all the games i will buy from origin (if i actually do e.g BF3) WILL be EA games anyway

^they have portal 2 on origin. and that's by valve. so origin doesn't only carry EA games.

lol no, this is healthy discussion

thiru posted the Origin EULA stating there is nothing about deleting games, and i was telling him that stealths original post was talking about the EA Tos. in fact we were both wrong and right since stealth mentioned origin but posted the Ea ToS; but there's no steam fanboi vs. origin fanboi going on here

and as for the staying on topic BF3 is awesome

How close will performance be to BC2, I wonder? I get around 20-30FPS on my Thinkpad T420's NVS 4200M at the lowest settings. I really hope performance is close.

Noone really knows. While the alpha looked good, you can tell it's alpha and they will have some work to do. We'll have to see final version and get more info from beta, from looking at singleplayer footage i want to say it's going to be a substantial difference. But my rig in my sig had no problem with the alpha on high @ 1920x1080

No one knows yet, but people are estimating about 10 fps less than BC 2 on a given setting.
