Alex: I hadn't touched Origin in a while, so I reset my profile ID right before I posted it, probably takes a few minutes for it to propagate through their servers.

11pm huh? I feel like I'm coming down with something, might not be in to work tomorrow

Ah gotcha. I'll add you again later. Says 9pm for me, I guess it must be like midnight eastern time or something.

^That is probably it. I foresee "oh my god pawns/noobs/your mom is gays/l33ts/"from yet to have ***** dropped teens for a bit. I hope PC is better about that than Xbox.

Of course I forgot to update my drivers and it complained. Now i have 198MB file to download before I can play :(

The browser plugin you have to download is funky. After you open the install file it loads and disappears. No notice if it's installed or not. Just close and reopen your browser and it should be fine.

Game was fun. Played with TorqueZombie for about an hour. We were on different teams though. I haven't played BF3 in year so I can't say if it's just BF3 with updated graphics. I did have more fun playing last night than I remember with BF3. Would be a lot more fun with some more people (hint hint).

Ask my in Dec. I need to update my PC first, but I'm waiting for Black Friday sales before I buy anything.

My computer now is getting obscenely slow lately. Not quite sure that what means, but it's seriously being weighted down by something.

I'll be on tonight for sure. I saw that I didn't preload it even though I had like a week to do it, and decided that I would rather stream the blackhawks game last night than download the game.

It was a good decision, they won 5-1.

The game file is seriously massive.

One thing that did surprise me is the lack of technical issues. Either a lot of people didn't preload, a lot of people are waiting to see how good it is, or they had the technical stuff sorted pretty well.

I had only one small issue for a few minutes where it wasn't returning any matches when I was letting it choose a server for me.

I heard anecdotally that the "beta" wasn't actually a beta, but a load test for the servers. Either way it sounds like they did a pretty good job. I work in software testing, and scalability is no joke. Just because it works for 10, 100, and 1,000 doesn't mean it will work for 100,000.

Hmm, what kind of system demand are we talking with BF4 ? If I could play bf3 on mid range settings, could my computer handle this game on a mid range graphic setting too?

I used to get 50fps and the game looked beautiful in bf3. Actually, why am i considering BF4 when bf3 is still installed and hasnt been played in over a year? I know what I'm doing now, lol.

How come all you PC snobs are complaining that you have to update your hardware to play a new game? I thought that was a thing of the past...

I'm sure not complaining. I've had this computer for about 2 years now and it still kicks ***. My problem is (just like with my car) that I'll jump at an excuse to upgrade. I'd be really upset if new games didn't push the limits of the newest available hardware from time to time, which is why PC games kick so much ***.

The problem is that most console ported games are usually poorly optimized and will require a far greater system than it should. At least from my experience.

BF3 was actually pretty well optimized I thought, better so than bad company 2 for sure. I'm curious as to how bf4 stacks up.

Those reqs aren't bad at all. Most of that stuff is ancient compared to what's out today. My specs are about what the recommended system specs are and I had 0 lag last night. FPS if I had to guess was in the 40-50s easy. My computer is also 1.5 years old. You definitely don't need anything mind boggling to play this game as far as I can tell.

I have a 2 page paper to write, and then I'll be on. I'll have more time tomorrow, but I"ll probably get an hour or so in today.
