    I haven't yet, I think it will go live later in the day.
    No else seems to be able to either.
    When I can though we should all add each other on Origin for a sneap-f(r)ag-fest

    Omg. I hate EA. Origin is the buggiest piece of shit software I've ever used (right after Windows ;) ), it takes 2 minutes to process clicks and gives me loads of failure messages. Next: Can't download the BF3 Beta between 6:00 and 23:00 o'clock without verifying my age through a Facebook app (W T F !) on the Battlefield Facebook page. The thing is... the servers for the age verification are down -> no keys, no download. Good job EA, really.

    EDIT: Just realized BF3 won't work with Windows XP. FML. Off to get Windows 7 then. Looking forward to hours of installing already -.-

    origin isn't that bad, it's just a rip off of steam

    Having said that, I think that their servers are getting raped due to the beta, because the store isn't loading...

    Edit: now downloading :headbang:

    I should have had access on the 27th, due to owning the Medal Of Honor LE, but haven't gotten an email. shit is whack. I played the alpha though and like it despite the respawn bug.

    Meh, vehicles. Pass.
    Worst thing that ever happened to FPS (ok, that tripod from Unreal Tournament 3 was badass).

    You ever played the Battlefield series before?
    Best vehicle implementation of any shooter imo, historically they've also had the best balance of simple/arcade style gameplay with enough of a milsim vibe to make the game fun.
    That's coming from someone who only plays deathmatch in UT.

    Only been playing about 20 mins.

    First impressions: this is definitely not the finished game (I hope).
    what the fuck is up with the browser based server system?

    Further impressions: Interface is terrible, game itself is extremely buggy.

    What do you think about the interface, and is it buggy for you?
