Battlefield: Bad Company 3

A third installment in the Battlefield: Bad Company franchise will happen, creative director Lars Gustavsson told reporters at a Battlefield 4 event, clarifying that it won't happen immediately because of the recent spate of newly announced Electronic Arts DICE-developed titles.

"My feeling is that I would love to do it. For me, when we started the company with 1942, it was really a work of passion," Gustavsson said. "And then we worked our way through the era of different wars, and I loved them all, like my little babies. When it came to Bad Company, it was creative freedom; don't take yourself too seriously.

"So I love it. I want to see it again. Whether it can happen

now with the newly announced Mirrors Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront... but we'll see," he said, referring to the new DICE-developed Mirror's Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront titles that were announced for next-generation consoles during EA's E3 2013 press conference in June.

"But trust me, the Bad Company [team] isn't forgotten, they are just on a very long vacation," he continued. "So they are out there, they're coming back."

I've never had the chance to play any of the Bad Company games, but from what I've heard the games are extremely fun and there are plenty of fans out there that would love to see Bad Company 3 happen.. and it looks like it will.

Yeah it was basically a watered down version arcadey version of Battlefield. The maps were still pretty big, but there was no prone, and very little of any bullet drop. The auto-spotter scope was insane.. and the magnum rounds option in your load out was basically the stopping power perk from early COD games. I personally thought the Vietnam DLC for BFBC2 was amazing. Hill 137 on Rush took everyone's breath away the first time you advance and see the burning hill of ash. Its one of my favorite maps of all time.

It would be a stretch with Battlefront now in their line up, but it might also be good. I'd rather see a 3 game roation between BF, BFBC, and SWBF.

Never got a chance the play BC2 but I did play the original and loved it, some of the best fun I've had with a multiplayer game in recent years (not the mention the single player campaign for the first one was fun as hell with a lot of quirky humor thrown in). Would love to see a BC3 (thought that means I need to get off my ass and get BC2).

I never played BC1, but from what I've been told the humor was toned down a lot in BC2. The solo campaign was still great, and the story was pretty awesome too. Way better than BF3's campaign that I never finished XD.

Any campaign from any shooter is better then BF3's campaign was, I was sorely disappointed with the entirety of it (and I actually beat the damn game). If felt like a rehash of COD4's story, just done worse. That sucks to hear they toned down the humor for BC2, that was one of the major selling points for the first one (for me anyways). Going through a major firefight and hearing your computer buddies making inappropriate jokes always cracked me up. Plus the ending always makes me laugh (I'm honestly surprised they're not in a military prison at the beginning of BC2 after what they pulled).

I added Bad Company 2 to my wishlist on steam so I'll know when it goes on sale. I wouldn't mind playing it just for the campaign. BF3's campaign was not impressive. I beat it, but I didn't really care for the plot or how the plot was presented... and with that being said, that campaign was still better than Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. I've beaten all three and BF3's was better.. yeah..

I didn't mind BO2 campaign. I guess since I had some emotional investment in the characters from BO1. Same goes for MW3's campaign. If you didn't start out in MW1, your investment in Soap and Price is detached.

Yeah.. thats what my brother told me. I never played the other games so I didn't see what the big deal was when things happened to the characters. ^_^;

God I really want MW3 only to see what happens in the end since I've played the other two, just couldn't justify buying it since I didn't have the money at the time. Now I just won't buy it due to my hatred of COD. Never beat BO1 so I don't even know what happens in the end (I'm on the last level but the night I was in the middle of it my father had a medical emergency so I had to drop it, haven't gone back since).

It might still be in the redbox. The campaign is worth the $3-6 keeping it for a few days. The ending is epic.

 

The one thing I did like about BO2's campaign is you could choose your load out before each mission. That was a nice improvement. And it was nice to use the RPD again, even if it was only in solo campaign.

That was a nice feature... just about all other FPS campaigns just stick you with whatever the story provides or what you might pick up. The variety of the possible load outs on the BO2 campaign was significant. It could be interesting to play it again and run shotgun most of the game. :P

 

I never played BO1 so I was lost in terms of characters just like MOH.. I wish sequels would give us a simple 5 minute recap video of the previous games for new players. They could throw it in an options or settings screen so its out of the way. I'd have looked on youtube, but everyone posts the entire game or segments. I just want to see a 5-10 minute highlight reel, not watch someone play for 8 hours. :\

I'd really like to see the next BF take place in Vietnam. Black Op 1 tried to do this, but it seemed more like Modern Warfare with dated weapons. The BFBC2 really captured the mood with the maps, sounds, and music. We've always had WWII games, and Modern games, but this is an era thats overlooked quite often.

It would interesting if BF did more of a jungle, forest environment. Everything I've played has been modern, large buildings, etc.

 

There were some maps on Medal of Honor Warfighter that look very similar to what I'm seeing in these videos. Those maps were actually pretty good, I'd like to see that in a BF game.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      Nvidia is launching an online game streaming service called GeForce NOW.
      I'm going to quote myself here from another topic:
      With Playstation having it's own streaming service and now Nvidia making it's own service, having to own physical consoles and PCs specifically for gaming might come to an end within our lifetimes.
      The downside to the Nvidia service is the cost. I've been seeing the numbers "$25 per 20 hours of gaming" floating around alot. If so, thats a hell of an expense for now.

      Am I the only one suffering from steam sale fatigue? Maybe its just me but ever since they changed the store to the design it is now nothing in the store appeals to me anymore. Its probably because of the massive influx of every game from every independent developer. Theres so many games on there that I never look at what new games came out anymore because in any given week 40+ new games were released and 250+ games are listed in their weekly sales. I stopped looking and only pay attention to humble bundle sales now. Even with the steam sale going on now I don't see any huge sale thats leaping out at me to take my money anymore. Sure I still have a backlog of games but there seems to be less and less new AAA or indie games that I'm interested in for PC. Unless its a game I want for console I hardly look at the steam store anymore even though I use steam on a daily basis.

      Powered by the same GPU as the Nvidia Shield and a couple smart phones and chromebooks, (and not as powerful as current gen consoles or even close to gaming PCs), the Nintendo NX will use the Nvidia Tegra as a GPU/CPU combo for a handheld console with detachable controllers. It will also come with a home base that you can plug into to play the console on the TV. It will still play cartridges.
      My guess is that it will look like the Wii U controller, except with detachable nunchuck controllers on the sides. I would photoshop something to look like that but I need a new photo editing program. ehh.

      The Tegra is a decent chip, but I don't see Nintendo competing with Sony or Microsoft at this point anymore. Its like they are doubling down on their handheld market, which makes sense to me. They know how to make good handhelds and they sell. But if this is all true it seems a bit too gimmicky to me. The Wii and Wii U was all targeted at families and party games, but this is obviously targeted toward individuals and solo players. If the screen is the normal size of a cell phone and its meant to run games all the time, I wonder how hot the thing will get and if it'll need to be recharged every 2 hours.

      The Steam summer sale 2016 started about an hour ago:
      http://store.steampowered.com/
      I was half expecting Mighty No. 9 to be on sale for 50% off only 2 days after release.
      There aren't any games I've been actively waiting to go on sale, but I might pick up that steam link for $35.
