I loved BF3 .

Hated origin I had massive issues with origin as at home i couldnt update the game on update days i would have to download the updates at work and copy the entire game folder to a usb and then transfer it to my home pc to make it work at home once the files in the game folder were updated i could then play the game until next update.

ended up quitting playing because of that and the outbreak of cheaters that started in bf3,

recently tried origin again tho and now its working at home so yippie sadly for me tho bf3 is dead now"in my gaming circle".

I am semi excited about the BF4 release but i Hope it isn't more graphically demanding than bf3 was.

one of my big complaints was that i had to upgrade my Graphics card to a 7970 "which i oced" just to get frame rates that i felt were fluid to me.

I would hope that i don't have to upgrade again to keep decent frame rates in the next gen game and can just start playing it smoothly and have fun from the start.

Also i wouldn't mind being able to play it on my laptop with a GTX -770m GPU in it at respectable frame rates either.

Give me BC3 before BF4, granted BF4 is just BF3 DLC with a watered down commander mode.

Exactly. That's why I'd want another Bad Company before another Battle of Duty. I enjoyed BC2 more than BF3.

Minimum specs are out Battlefield 4 PC System requirements released by DICE, recommends Windows 8 | VG247
Can't believe the 8800GT still makes minimum reqs lists of new games. Didn't someone here buy mine?

Hmm, CPU core use should be interesting in benchmarks. I wonder if I should go 6 core now.
