    Bad Company 2 video - how not to be a n00b - see you on the battlefield!

    Great video - it does a very good job of explaining the way this game works, and how you can adjust your playing tactics to excel. It's pretty funny in parts too. Remember, this is not MW2 folks!

    Anyone who has not played BC1 or the Demo/Beta extensively (and even those who have) should really watch this before stepping out on the battlefield. It is an excellent guide.

    Funnily enough, I tried, and succeeded in taking down a helicopter with the UAV's machine gun last night - and I did indeed woop (very quietly though).

    I cant wait for this game. MW2 is so boring im getting rid!

    I was thinking of selling my copy today as well. Have BC2 pre-ordered and haven't really gotten into the MW2 multiplayer tbh......

    Have had some insane moments playing the BC2 demo over the last couple of weeks, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, and visa versa. The full game is going to be immense.......

    There is a good single player video here too - not new, but I hadn't seen it before..................

    Demo is still on PSN and XBox stores - live until the 25th Feb

    If you watch the video before playing the demo, you will improve your game no end, and have a lot more fun in the process......:thumbsup:

    There was a way of getting a beta code for the pc version in the Freebies section a while ago... give me a minute whilst I go hunting...

    If you want it on or before release day, Shopto is probably your best bet (and the cheapest, apart from Coolshop).........

    Site is down at the moment though :?

    EDIT: Back up now...............]http//ww…tml

    nice vid - strangely taught me alot of stuff.

    The limited will have a few early unlocks, but nothing else special about it. I'm looking forward to the 'ten dollar' bonus DLC myself! :thumbsup:

    urgh. cant wait for this game. BF:BC is my fave game of this generation. unfortunately 2months ago my 60GB PS3 got YLOD. just got a £200 voucher off GAME so will be using this to buy a new 250GB Slim, hopefully in a bundle with BC2.

    First Bad Company 2 review is in -

    95% scored at Game Informer! Nice one :thumbsup:

    Not content to settle for second place, DICE throws down the gauntlet with Bad Company 2, delivering its best multiplayer package since Battlefield 2 and a remarkably improved single-player campaign that openly mocks its rival while cribbing from them at the same time.

    I cant wait, im debating whether to preorder, or wait and trade for this Black wireless adaptor i got given by my brother!

    I think all the decent pre-order prices have been and gone now. The game will probably be £30+ for the next few months I reckon.

    This game is part of 'project ten dollar' so there will be free DLC for anyone purchasing it new - if you purchase pre-owned you will also have to cough up for the DLC, should you want it (I think the DLC will be extra MP maps/modes)

    was alright, however no more FPS's for a while. Mafia II and Red Dead Redemption for me.

    Not that I was going to cancel the two pre-orders for the Special Edition I have placed already (& maybe a third, & a fourth by the time my other two kids want to "all join on to play army" too), and I was buying for the online multiplayer aspects of the game anyway, but this sounds like great news.

    Since playing the Beta & the Demo versions I've finally got around to opening my Gold Edition of "Battlefield: Bad Company" & wish I'd found the time to play that sooner.

    I've not been online yet, though. Too many other things to do!

    The current Playable Demo period of "Battlefield: Bad Company 2" finishes this week just in time for the first year anniversary celebrations for "Killzone 2" this weekend.

    Still... with the release of "Heavy Rain" to the US yesterday & the UK on Friday (or earlier with pre-order deliveries) it may mean the servers are not as full (of "yankers" verbally abusing me for having the audacity to kill them).

    See you in battle...

    BFN,

    good vid

    FYI:
    The pre-order for the "Battlefield: Bad Company 2" (Limited Edition) [PS3] I placed at Game.co.uk on 4 February 2010 was despatched at 12;42pm (today). This is for one of my kids.

    The pre-order of the same item I placed at Game.co.uk on 19 November 2009 hasn't been processed yet!?! This one was for me

    Not that they'll be any different when they arrive... but it is odd how the stock allocation is being handled.

    I have also had dispatch confirmation from GAME this morning - I only had one copy ordered.

    I have really been looking forward to playing BC2 - I just hope that my PS3 is operational again before it arrives!

    My second order has subsequently been despatched. Back to mild-blue alert.

    As we've discussed already, it is not a "(real) life or death" situation with the PS3... real life does go on, but given that i ended up with "Heavy Rain" when I wasn't going to buy it (long-ish story I won't bore you with now) & I'm not going to play that until the Soundtrack redemption process is "fixed", not being able to play the only game I was looking forward to this year due to an issue with my 60Gb PS3 is a nuisance (too).

    Fortunately, two of my kids have 160Gb models (but my third has a 60Gb model like me), so they can play "Battlefield: Bad Company 2" even I cannot.

    (Or... to be more precise... I can borrow their console when they go to bed).

    With that in mind (borrowing a console, not going to bed) do you have a Clan/Squad organised for the game yet?

    If you are missing at least one in the party I'd like to ask to join on to play army please.

    BFN,

    Hi fp

    I have posted on the PSN id thread too - it would be good to get a clan together for BC2 - doesn't need to be huge, as you can only have 4 man squads anyway. [email protected] will play no doubt play, and a few others will join in I'm sure. Glad you have managed to borrow a console tonight - I have used the opportunity to make a mess in the house (aka do some DIY jobs that I had been putting off) for which I am actually quite grateful (is that how you spell grateful, doesn't look right?!) Oh well..............off for a cup of tea and a read now....................;-)
