    The best news I've heard so far? Explosions are actually gonna look like explosions, not just grey smoke. :)

    The explosions in BF1942 were good. They didn't look just like smoke, although I admit they were somewhat cheezy-sounding. Not quite beefy enough most of the time.

    I personally despise huge, burning explosions. Not only are they fake, but they're also generally too big. I don't expect to have a hand grenade make a huge explosion like it currently does in BF. Rather, it should look more like in Raven Shield - a flash of light, and a cloud of smoke. Debris would also be a nice touch.

    Really, have you ever seen an exlposion in a combat situation? Most of them are just a slight pop of flame, and then a plume of smoke. The ones you see in movies are just bull**** - overdone napalm fests.
    This is where my signature would go had my host not been such a Bandwidth Nazi.

    Have you ever seen or heard a real exploshion? I was at the air base in cold lake when they had a A-10 trying out some bombs and they got it on tape and the bombs are loud as hell, even on tape they sounded loud.

    Electronic Arts today announced that Battlefield Vietnam has officially gone gold for the PC and will ship nationwide to retailers on Monday, March 15. Developed by Digital Illusions Canada, Battlefield Vietnam "drops players into some of the Vietnam War's fiercest battles.

    march 15? great news :thumb:
    But i would like the see a demo released before then, although I would have expected a demo sooner than now. With less than 2 weeks to launch, i wonder if then even will?

    probably is, no one wants to complete with a popular game upon release, and both of these are highly anticipated games (although it would help if the release a demo for BF:V)

    it's going to force a lot of people to choose between the two for the time being. many people just don't have the money to buy two new games at once.

    nice to see linux support right from the beginning this time, but why so early? It's not like many people will be able to get much use out of it till next week...

    So people can get servers up and running before the game comes out. Otherwise it'd be a rush to get all the server software at release day...
