Game has really great details in character models. Really nice and accurate to what real Marines and US ARMY soldiers and special operation units are currently wearing in the sandbox.

Ive noticed several different types of fatigues, Marines Digital, Frog Suits, Multicam and some PMC stuff.

800 lumens? Pfft, I can piss 800 lumens if I drink a glowstick.

For reference, 806 lumens is a typical 60 watt lightbulb. Oh shi... I just looked at the light on my ceiling and I'm blind now guys!

You should really run Compact Flourescent lights, they are cheaper and put out more lumens

(cant remember if that statement is true, I used to grow marijuana so I knew alot about lumens and such.)

I'm in that awkward spot of not knowing what drivers to use for this game.

285.62s seem ok but still getting green flashes, texture flicker and the odd crash.

Were comments I read about the game being an earlier build so the 285.38 drivers would be better but i've not been able to find the nvidia source for it.

I love BF3 but there's no teamwork. No one uses a mic on PC. On the 360 people use mics (for better or worse). Yes, some are on vent/ts but that doesn't work well for joining a random server or squad based chat.

The game doesn't encourage the use of transport vehicles.

I also wonder if the game wouldn't be better without the rocket launchers. So many players have rockets that it turns most vehicles into death traps. That's why people don't get into transport vehicles.

Less people would play engineers if they didn't have the best gun in the game.

I'd say the mines are a bigger problem than the rockets are far as vehicles are concerned. sometimes they are just so hard to spot whilst carrying 2 passengers and doing 50 mph.
