    Just hope the twimtbp logo is less obtrusive and there's no PhysX in the game.

    Well, today marks my first foray into the world of "Bad Company." I pre ordered the limited edition for it's unlocks. I'm looking forward to lighting people up with my spiffy 1911. Thus far, it's slated for a March 2nd release, although I tend to take Gamestop's release dates with a grain of salt. Regardless, here's to hoping it's anywhere near as immersive as any of the preceeding BF games. If so, count on my absence for quite some time :)

    Or hope that there's physics in the game and it is done with a more open standard, ala OpenCL

    This a 1000x this! Heh, the game looks great but I can't help but notice the low resolution textures and there's no need not to have better quality shadow options on the PC. Even if they have to be hidden away in a config file I don't really mind so long as they can be tweaked to well above the quality of the console implementation.

    Edit: DX11 confirmed? Oh, my, you guys are definitely trying to capitalise on IW ballsing up the PC release, eh?

    Damn DX11!?

    OK I see a 5870 in my PC very very soon!

    With the added support of DX11 I think they will really up the bar for PC version! :happy:

    So.... BC2 shouldn't be on that AMD list of DX11 supported games?

    Maybe it will use DX11 - the API though not necessarily its features in the sense that unlike with DX9->DX10 you don't really have to do anything radical to get a game to run on the new version of the API? But yeah, these contradictory signals are annoying.

    I'm going to join in on the mayhem and contribute the following rumour (remember you heard it here first): Maybe there'll be a DX11 patch down the line. :razz:

    Since it's a completely new version of the engine I doubt it :)

    Man I think I might have to get BFBC2, but I still want my BF3 DICE! I STILL GOT FAITH IN YOU!!!

    And damn, upgrading is going to cost me alot to be DX11 ready. I need some more RAM (at least 2 GB more, a DX11 card, a new HDD for a copy of Win7, and while my dual core is easily good enough for the time being, I may want a quad core by spring. DAMN THATS GOING TO COST ME A BUTT LOAD!

    BF3 is coming, I guess, DICE said that once. I think BC2 will rock even on DX10, you can hold ur horses for sometime ! :)
