Anyone playing the Demo? Pretty fun stuff. I am looking forward to the full game on March 2.

ps: I still suck at FPS :(

I downloaded the demo for 360 but haven't had time to play it more than once. Once it's released I'll probably get it for PS3 though.

Well I have been snowed in, and I am enjoying the PS3 demo. Ever since MW2 I've started preferring the PS3 controller to the 360 for games like this.

I've not doing very well, but I'm still having a lot of fun. Too bad nearly all of the weapons and upgrades are locked in the demo.

I hope it is well received. I can't take much more of MW2 and teams composed entirely of grenade launchers and teleporting knife bitches...

I'm thinking about getting it. I enjoyed the first bad company for both single and multiplayer. I really hope you can stay in our own party chat unlike MW2 multiplayer. That alone ruined what should have been a great game. Instead we have to resort to playing in our own private games.

You can stay in your own party and chat in MW2, but I think it's only allowed in the Ground War (Domination/Deathmatch) games.

Been a while since a game has given me blue balls like this. It wouldn't be a Battlefield game without random crashes and disconnects right when you get on a roll.

Awesome game despite a rough first day. It's odd how medics/engineers don't start off with their class defining items. It isn't all that much to unlock, but still very weird.

Yea, random crashes kinda suck. The game definitely has a different feel to it than MW2. The maps seem much bigger, the game is quieter, there are less 'in your face' graphics when shit happens (getting multiple kills, headshots, defending flags, etc.). I wouldn't call it the MW2 killer, but it's definitely an adequate substitute.

Oh, and getting into a match with 2 people, both on the same side, isn't too fun.

Gamestop won't let me use my $10 credit on it, so I probably won't buy it until it comes down in price, and probably not then either.

Best way to describe this is Battlefield 3 Lite. 32 players instead of 64, the map size feels smaller than standard Battlefield games, but as mentioned bigger than MW2. The action is fast and everything feels balanced so far, at least the bit it let me play last night.

Knifing feels so good. Almost an art.

Protubing is still here, but it doesn't infuriate me the way it does in MW2. Probably because I can load an ATV full of C4 and crash it into faggot snipers houses and jihad him and his 20 friends to hell and I forget all about it.

Two things bother me. The bloom is insane. Even turned off it's bright as shit. Even for non snipers. And for some reason when I jump in a Humvee and get on the 50, when I fire the game turns into Michael J Fox Simulator.

Knifing is much better in BC2 than in MW2, where people knife you from 10 feet away while firing their Stingers at the Harrier that you just summoned.

What is protubing?

Maybe referring to the typical "gun used by terrible people because they can score easy kills without really aiming at anything" weapon that every FPS has at least one of?

Yeah, the rifle-mounted grenade launcher, colloquially referred to as the Noob Tube or (newly) Pro Pipe.

Also I ended up getting this game with a massive trade-in credit from the Stop. Only played it a couple of times, but it's pretty fun. Definitely more than I expected it to be.

I'm having a blast with it. I really can't find a weakness with any of the classes. They are all fun in their own way. You can really pile on the points as a Medic, however. I'm always in the top 3 or 4 when I'm a Medic.

The skill rating thing is pretty wonky. I played like 10 games yesterday, got the Ace pin in around 6 of them, then today it said that my ranking went down based on my shitty gameplay yesterday. I think it puts too much weight on deaths. I am good at dying when playing defense. :P

Not sure if anyone plays this game or not on the Xbox, but if so, here's how to get the Dr. Pepper DLC for free:

Quote:
FREE Battlefield Bad Company 2 BFBC2 SPECACT Download DLC for Xbox 360 from Dr Pepper Promo - NO CAPS NEEDED!
For Xbox 360 Only! PC & PS3 to be released later.

Free Battlefield Bad Company 2 BFBC2 SPECACT DLC from Dr Pepper Promo, DLC released today! 460 MS Points needed in Europe, only through this promo in US

Don't bother buying caps or buying more Dr. Pepper, borrowed from Destructoid et al from the free mass effect content:

YOU WILL NEED TO REGISTER 1 Dr Pepper ACCOUNT PER CODE, IT WILL SAY THAT YOU CAN CLAIM A MASS EFFECT 2 PRIZE, DO NOT CLICK IT!

Instead right click on the "Claim Now" link next to the Mass Effect 2 picture and copy its URL, but change the last number from 3 to 4, and go to that URL in order for you to select the BFBC2 prize option

These are all reusable non-unique codes, but you can only redeem one code per account:
CBEEAAA41NWH
CBEEAAAE4L9N
CBEEAAAFQG9J
CBEEAAAE98ZV

Register for the promo and redeem your codes here:
http://www.drpepper.com/promotions/ea


Dr Pepper is offering free in-game content/DLC through their "Every Bottle/Cup Wins" promotion.
- Look under the cap of specially marked 20 oz., 16 oz. and 14 oz. bottles or 32 oz. fountain cups of Dr Pepper, Dr Pepper Cherry, Diet Dr Pepper and Diet Dr Pepper Cherry for the game code and redeem for great prizes.
- Buy any large fountain drink at any participating Taco Bell to get your special EA Games code on each cup.

Codes can be redeemed for the following Battlefield Bad Co 2 goodies:
Four kit upgrades that allow you to become a unique Special Activities soldier, with new camouflage and a modified weapon. Kit upgrades also contain new awards and an additional achievement.
The four upgrades include:
* Assault: Unique camouflaged M16A2 and matching camo’s.
* Engineer: Unique camouflaged UMP-45 and matching camo’s.
* Medic: Unique camouflaged MG3 and matching camo’s
* Recon: Unique Camouflaged M95 and matching camo’s


In a nutshell, go to http://www.drpepper.com/promotions/ea, enter the code, answer 3 questions, register with fake information, submit, it takes you to the EA website where you log in with your real actual login, pick a kit, profit. Then you log out and do it all again to get the other kits that are available (and the ring tones, if you are really an addict).
