I dont think it is still going on. It was a limited time offer (like at least week and a half to two weeks ago) and only for people who played the alpha.

Oh, I see it is only for US and Canada... So what, the games are not THAT amazing (Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 which are kind of cheap now anyways), and I would have pre-ordered BF3 because it will be awesome, not because of some stupid gift. Sure it is nice to get free game, but it is not like i think "Hmmm, Battlefield 3 kind of sucks, i will buy it only if it comes with free game" Unfortunately both steam and origin sometimes are unfair with international pricing, discounts, sales, and whatever.

Not buying BF3 because you dont get free game is kind of stupid i think.

It's not like the free games were worth anything anyways...I paid $6 for ME2 a few weeks ago. There will always be a group of people that whine or want to seek attention over the most stupid things. Personally, I would have been embarrassed to have shown that chat log. I mean how petty can a grown adult be?

The guy trying to get a free game is a idiot. I bet he is the one who started all the London riots.

TDM info

Quote:
First, the 4 on 4 TDM setup is for Gamescom's lounge specifically. The full game will support 24 players in TDM by Design. In theory we could go bigger on PC of course, but we wanted to focus on a tight infantry TDM game. There are no vehicles in TDM.

Second, on Motion Sensors. First, you cannot throw them like the motion balls in BC2. You deploy them, they are larger (and easier to see) than BC2, they can be destroyed, they beep when they detect movement. A recon soldier can only have 1 deployed at a time. You can crouch or prone and move past a motion sensor without setting it off. Motion sensors will only show you briefly on the minimap (approximately 0.5sec).

You can, therefor, easily walk into range of a sensor, get detected, crouch, sneak away and either destroy the beacon or move and ambush anyone nearby who goes to investigate your position.

I really liked going through Battlelog in the alpha, and I'm glad they stuck with it. It just seems like the games start so much faster than the old in game server browser.

That has been a big problem with Dice's BF games. They traditionally loaded very slowly. It was painful. It wasn't till a year or so after that you finally got the games to load at a reasonable rate. BC2 did not load slow. It was on par with other games out there. I am hoping BF3 will not be a slow loader as well.

I don't see how it would be any slower than it was in alpha. We will be able to skip the intros, movies and all that crap. My games would load in seconds, and when I wanted to switch servers I just hop out, refresh my list and pick a new one. Battlelog is the best server browser I have used.
