Battlefield 3 - Crappy battlelog, no real squad system and a buggy POS

So disillusioned with the whole thing right now. The only headaches worth paying for are those that come in a bottle.
Battlefield 3 better be good, i haven't played the beta but from what I have read it isn't sounding good. Like you say, no squad system, VOIP seems non existant WHY?. I loved BF2, its the game I have have sunk the most hours of any game into, why couldn't they model BF3 off that, with destruction thats all im asking for. oh the glory days, BF2 was PC only. As for Rage not sure what to do here, to buy or not to buy?? that is the million $ question

Worth buying to be a part of the biggest fail in PC gaming history. Why would you want to miss that? lol

Metacritic user score of 3.1

This is the new Daikatana, and I was defending this damn game. Until I got to the Dead City and realised how poor this engine really is.

Game is about 9hrs long at most too, don't believe the lies.

Here are my findings.

Using the ingame AA setting makes the textures worse, it sort of blurs them.

It must be using some form of MLAA / FXAA and does that nasty vaseline thing.

There is an extra config which is meant to eliminate the texture pop in, worth a go.

MLAA/FXAA definitely blurs everything, but in well done games like Hard Reset where the textures are all very sharp it actually looks better to soften everything a bit.

This game isn't even close to being Daikatana. Daikatana was actually a bad game, this is a good game with a few issues. And Metacritic user scores are filled with no life morons who whine like little girls at the drop of a hat. Anyone who thinks they hold any weight needs to get their head examined.

All these configs...would it kill them to put in some sliders/tweaks in the game itself? I can't believe id software put out a game where the only video options are resolution and AA. Unreal.

To be fair, Doom3 only had a limited set of graphics options as well and their games have always been like that.

The best games are created when a team is passionate about some aspect of the experience: be it the lead character, the setting, the story, or a new game mechanic. There is nothing about the characters, setting, story, or mechanics in Rage that's interesting, new, exciting, or fun. It feels like a group of people had to create a game because they were under contract, not because they honestly enjoyed any aspect of their own creation. This is a great tech demo for the engine, and that's all. It's merely competent, but never special.

So, just to sum up my nine plus hours with the game so far:
No story to speak of
No characters that make an impression
Linear
Broken save system
Dull mechanics
Tedious quests
Weak shooting
Stock weapons
Racing is fun
Minigames are enjoyable
Very pretty

We'll be testing on PC and playing multiplayer in the coming days, but I felt it was important to share what the game is versus what people expect it to be. This is a massive disappointment.
How can people rate this with 9-9.5!

I don't understand!?

It's all about the $$$$$

I'm having a blast with this game so far. Save system isn't broken, works just fine. iD and Bethesda (and AMD/NVIDIA) need to hurry up with the graphics texture fix along with HD textures. Some new NVIDIA drivers wouldn't hurt either.
