Well, i gave it a go.
Booted up origin, updated the game.
The server browser is all messed up. only the first 3 servers are visible, the rest are a muddled glitch. Thankfully i've got all the gon servers favorited so i jump into 24/7 wake.
Spawn, die within 6-8 seconds, in a chopper with no explanation.
Go to menu, configure all the keys. Discover that you have to configure shared keys across all vehicle types, annoying but ok.
Game crashes to desktop.
Jump back into 24/7 wake, configure keys again.
Spawn, discover that whenever i move my mouse the guy pulls out his mines.
Menu, find that for some reason 'pull out inventory item 1' is binded to 'Axis 0'. Remove that binding. Alt-tab to mouse settings, reconfigure mouse.
Back to game key config, make 'mouse 3' pull out inventory item 1. Make 'mouse 4' pull out inventory item 2. OK.
Spawn, test out mouse buttons.
BF3 cannot detect my mouse 3 at all.
Game crashed to desktop.
Testing mouse in windows, all buttons work perfectly.
So you see my frustrations. I haven't even experienced the gameplay yet and I'm fed up with the game. Also who the hell designs game menus for consoles and then just ports the damn things to PC? Oh wait, everybody.
Help me out, man.
Tell me it's all worth it
