    Battlefield: Bad Company 2

    Yep, just found out the serial code at the back of my manual. Kind of confusing as so many codes, the limited edition code, the extra AK74u code from preorder, then the installation code. Also for any one who might be interested, there is a card saying BF 1943 is coming soon on PC, price is $US15.

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2

    Hi, Just a quick question as I got the game on PC but haven't yet install it. But on opening the package I didn't find a disk installation key code??, so does that mean this one won't need one to install? Or is it missing from my package? The game I got is sealed from EB so I assume no installation key required, if that's the case it's quite uncommon these days. Thanks.

    PC DRM reaches a new low - Assassins Creed 2

    The drm in BF BC2 is much better and very flexible giving you options, go online once then no disk required, or put in the disk each time you play but no need to be online.

    Battlefield:Bad Company 2

    32 max. should be more than enough, otherwise it will really become too chaotic. Still it's much better than the 9 vs 9 in COD MW2. But the maps in BF BC2 are huge.

    Crysis 2

    http://twitter.com/TinyManRages/status/7995176786 http://tweetphoto.com/9153787 Crytek looks set to abandon its traditional tropical island setting with its next game. As Shacknews points out, PlayStation: The Official Magazine Editor-in-Chief Gary Steinman has posted the cover of his magazine's March 2010 issue on Twitter. The headline on the cover leaves little to the imagination. The folks at Shacknews learned from Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitillo earlier this month that Crysis 2, along with several other EA games, will see the light of day some time between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. The game will reportedly be a multi-platform release. Back in March 2009, Crytek demonstrated a version of its engine capable of scaling down to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The company said the engine was capable of scaling up to "all major upcoming platforms," as well, so perhaps the PC version of Crysis 2 could produce prettier graphics than other cross-platform games.

    Crysis 2

    Maybe you can make a mod after the game came out... Btw, should be better than Ubisoft's "Far Cry" 2.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 Pre Order/Beta Steam

    I will definitely pickup this one on PC, this one is better on PC than consoles. Like many people, really enjoyed BF2 and actually prefer BF to COD games. And all the trailers so far looked really awesome. : ) Not sure about the new MOH at this stage, will wait and see then decide later in the year.

    Who hates Windows Live Sign In BS?

    For similar reasons, I don't really like Steam too much either tbh, I just miss the old days you just install the game and play straight away, without the need for an internet connection. Piracy make legitimate users suffer as well.

    Napoleon: Total War

    Imperial has M2 Gold Edition, not worth if you've already got them, along with some special units. And the release date is mid-Feb, from many Australian retailers' pre-order page.

    GOTY 2009 ?

    Yeah probably COD MW2 shouldn't be the 'best multiplayer' game for anyone outside the US..., otherwise I assume the experience is basically lag-free and as good as COD4's multiplayer.

    GOTY 2009 ?

    Hi, Probably it's a bit early since November isn't over yet, but as 2009's December is really not that exciting for new game releases, so I just wondering what's everyone's opinion on GOTY of 2009? All major platforms included. I have narrowed down some of the candidates for you. Update: Poll is available now.

    Battlefield:Bad Company 2

    I just traded a console version of Assassin Creed 2 into EB and used the store credit to pre-order the limited edition for BF BC2, as like many I really enjoy BF2. Yeah all the videos so far looks awesome and this one finally coming to PC after the first only on consoles. DX11 support, dedicated servers, Frostbite engine/fully destructible buildings, controllable vehicles (not just ride on them like in COD), max. 32 players, joystick support for flying... The system requirement does seem a bit demanding but need to upgrade next year anyway. Also I think BF 1943 on PC will come out around the same time as this one. March 2010.

    GOTY 2009 ?

    As quite a few of you voted for ETW, I actually went to EB yesterday and bought a copy as part of their Christmas sale ($50). Hopefully I will enjoy the game. But just after it came out earlier this year, I did hear the initial release is kind of buggy and unstable... not sure about the current situation after numerous patches.

    GOTY 2009 ?

    I guess depends on whether it's the PC or Console version in question. COD4 on PC is probably the best of the 3 platforms back then, but MW2 is kind of different, PC is probably the worst of the 3, still an above average game nevertheless. Let's not...

    GOTY 2009 ?

    The music is very good as well, done by Hans Zimmer.

    GOTY 2009 ?

    Yeah, the sniper level is regarded by many as one of the best missions in COD4, along with the AC130 one. And quite a few also prefer the SAS portion of the campaign, compared to the US part. I was looking forward to a possible assassination mission though of makarov like the one for Zakhaiev in COD4 where you crawl through all manor of radiation and crap on the ground to get a good sniping spot which was a shame because I really liked that mission.

    Hi, Just let everyone know I have created the poll option in my first post. Should do this the first time but nevertheless vote for your favorite game now.

    GOTY 2009 ?

    So far it seems E:TW is going to end up being PC GOTY at Atomic. :) For quite a few other sites I come across, Uncharted 2 is the winner at this stage, for consoles, then followed closely by COD MW 2.
