Released today. Anybody got the game yet? Thoughts, impressions, videos or screenshots? I'm picking up my copy for the PC on the way home and going to dive into single player tonight. I want to get through the story mode before I touch multiplayer because I know if I don't I'll never touch story mode again. Can't wait to check out the new maps, guns and vehicles though in multiplayer....

Worked on getting it to play on PC last night.  Finally figured out a 3rd party app I run to remotely connect to my PC from work was hosing it up.  Odd, doesn't mess with any other game.  By the time I found that out, it was bed time.  Will try to play tonight.  I really only joined the test range and it looks good.  I tried running performance test in the options but it won't run, so I wonder if it's bugged out, since I pass recommended requirements by a bit.

 

Should be great though.

Anyone got it on PS3?

 

I almost went and got it last night, but I'm wondering if I should just wait it out and get the PS4.

Brah if you get it now you can trade up to the PS4 version for $9.99.

Forgot about that. 

 

Have you pre-ordered the next gen yet?

 

I completely flubbed on it, so I'm thinking about camping out on the 14th to get it on the 15th with the little stock they'll receive outside of the pre-orders.

Yeah pre-ordered in June from Amazon. Getting it the 22nd and they waived the shipping!

wow...  I'm such an idiot lol.

 

I've never done the "camp out" thing the night before a release, so it's kind of intimidating...  I'm questioning whether I should just wait until the next wave of stock comes in, but I think if I wait, I may not get one until sometime in 2014.

I doubt that. They'll push a ton of crap out for Christmas.  I think it's just a big hype machine.  There should be enough eventually, I doubt it'll take till next year.

Got it yesterday and I love it.  Granted I was knee deep into some Heinekens but I had a blast.  I really like some of the changes they made to multiplayer (like the little preview of where you're going to spawn).  Didn't really play the maps enough times to really judge them properly but I like the verticality of them.  Also, snipers are really going to earn their kills.  In this game if I get sniped I don't get mad like in COD, because there really isn't any quickscoping.  Not only do you have to adjust for wind, but now you'll have to manually adjust for distance. 

 

I've found that the UI is a bit confusing, especially when trying to switch classes.  Just not as intuitive as it was in the past, but I suppose I'll get used to it.

 

Played about 4 hours of the campaign before I hit multiplayer and it was pretty tight also.  Lots of "oh poo" moments.

Awesome folks!  Enjoy!

 

I'm going to sit out the next gens until they settle a bit more in 2014.  Also, I need a new job first...

 

I also want to see that there are some real improvements other than "moar shinnez!"  Graphics are nice, but is it fun?  Do more shadows and uber textures make it more immersive?  Or does your crap shine more?  I look forward to seeing what the new consoles really do.
