Ooh, so we can play with all the haxx0rz and get pwn3d by aimbots and have connection problems?

I MIGHT try it out, probably just so I can smirk and head back to Bad Company 2. :rolleyes:

Hacker extravaganza. Hear that its the sound of 1000s of angry little geeks setting up fake steam accounts.

Apparently, Activision ****ed up, and the only way you can download it is by using the old UI for now.

BF BC2 has become noobtube central. When BF BC2 won't let me online I have no problems connecting and playing MW2. Different game, but there are just as many cheaters and t00bers on BF BC2, don't kid yourselves...

They are, but they are just as bad in BF BC2. noob tubes and nade spammers are in both games and are highly annoying :retard:

... I tend to think that the steam versions are making up for less than half the sold copies, so those numbers really aren't indicative of much of anything.

ALL MW2 games have to go through steam. Obviously, not ALL BFBC2 games go through steam.

I tried the game. Fun, arcadey. Not completely my cup of tea.

Is this game a system-killer? I had depth of field on, and everything at highest/extra, and 2xaa on @ 1280x720. I was getting perfect fps in most spots, but on one map it was just terrible down certain alleyways or during certain explosions. Granted, this was on my x3 @ 2.7ghz/4850 rig, but still, dang, WTH?

bump. Any advice on the above post? Anyone else trying this out? FWIW the free weekend got pushed out until Mon @ 2pm EST.

I preloaded it, the 4 GB. Then when it came out, it said I need to download another 8GB. There would be no way I could play it within this weekend, so I deleted it. Why do they do this? So many people on the forums said they deleted the game cache, and went back to BFBC2. So much for this free weekend.
