    While I like the idea of BC soming to the PC, I'm really hoping this isn't Dice's answer to all our premonitions of a BF3. I'm still holding on to the hope of two unannounced games.

    Bad Company is essentially DICE's modern-combat BF. Gold Rush, particularly, is one of the best things to happen to the BF franchise, giving it much-needed focus. The ATs are more powerful, too. The only thing I think I miss is the shock paddles.

    A shot of the new destruction engine. Hope it actually works out that way.

    Hopefully the destruction engine is much improved over the first version. Not that it sucked in Bad Company 1, but it wasn't overly impressive either based on the demo.

    That's what that shot is showing -- it's not going to be Red Faction: Resistance destruction, but you'll actually level buildings.

    Right, well to be fair that shot is tiny and I can't really tell what going on there (other than the fact that the building was leveled of course).

    Hopefully the PC version isn't dumbed down like the console versions in terms of squads/commander and such.

    BC 1 had pre-scripted destruction so it was not really dynamic unless you hit right spot. It stil lwas nice but also the fade out time of debris was imediate which IMO was a immersion killer.

    I can assure everyone here that the destruction will be utterly dissapointing - just like it is in BFBC1.

    The reason is that the destruction is not physics based, but scripted. BFBC2 will also feature scripted destruction.

    Meaning that once you destroyed one building, you have pretty much seen it all. The exact same thing happends every time, if you hit the south wall with a rocket launcher the destruction of the wall will be exactly the same even if you try to shoot at it from different angles, and hit different places (but on the same wall). Surely they will have more hitzones with different scripted destruction, but its still going to suck.

    This. BF3 + CS2 would get me to dump the silly toys (consoles) in a heartbeat.

    They've said that the PC version will be different from the console versions.

    BF3/BF3142/(whatever they call it) won't make me abandon console gaming, but it will definitely make me build a new PC just to play it. I'm so disgusted with the console versions of BF.

    Bad Company can kiss my ass. That game sucked. Hard. It strayed way too far from what made BF2 so special. I also really think the single player campaign is an absolute waste of resources. BF = multiplayer. Period. I guess it's there due to the conventional "wisdom" that every console game must have a SP campaign. Ridiculous. Leave it out, focus on multiplayer, and price it accordingly. If they do this (and do it correctly), I really think DICE can hit one out of the park.

    I have very low expectations of any Battlefield games these days.

    They peaked with Battlefield 1942 & have been entirely down-hill since except in graphics.

    Heck, have they even managed to fix the player name colour bug in BF2 yet?
    If it was an intentional feature to simulate situational awareness issues causing friendly fire & they stated that, I wouldn't mind.
    They tried to fix it at least 3 times but it was still broken last time I played.

    On PC? Maybe. But I highly doubt anyone will see a full-fledged, exclusive BF game for PC. Not with BF:Heroes there, and not with their having built an extremely capable multiplatform engine. And especially not with BF:BC having actually found success on console.

    And if they build for console, you can bet they'll include a single-player.

    Its actually thesame as the first one if you look closely. The 1st and the 2nd shot, look at the broken wall edge on the top floor, its the same "broken version" of a wall as in BF:BC. I think the method of destruction is still the same, ie. multiple broken models, just that now we have another model where the building is completely gone. Could turn out strange, as after 20 mins of a game if the whole field is leveld, then its just shoot each other while running hard :???: !

    Yeah, I was wondering about that, too. Will all buildings be destructible? What about the gold crates, will you be able to collapse a building they're sitting in?
