    Non-Disclosure Agreement.
    Also, anyone can go to their site and register for the alpha. Though they screen you, so not many people get in. Something to do with EA games/rank i think. (or so i've heard)

    This is the first time I've looked forward to a war game since Modern Warfare 2... I'll definitely be getting it but for XBox (Boo! Hiss! ...I know). There are two things I'm really looking forward to in this game:

    1. Cover fire - first game I've seen with realistic dirt/debris from bullet impacts making cover fire finally a feasible tactic. Apparently they also added a suppression fire mechanic to LMGs that adds camera shake and visual distortion (sort of like flashbang effect in most games) to those being shot at.

    2. Fighter jets. FIGHTER JETS.

    Still waiting/hoping to get mine. I hope I didn't suffer through playing Medal of Honor for nothing...

    I've heard that those who bought Medal Of Honor Limited Edition (aka Tier 1) will get access to the closed beta, which should start at some point in August. The rest of us will have to wait for the open beta.

    MoH gets you closed beta, not alpha. You have to sign up for the BF3 news letter if you want a chance of getting into alpha.

    I agree. I absolutely love dominating some guy, just for him to hide behind a wall or something to go back to 100% health and come out and kill me... Absolutely retarded.

    I would love to see games get away from this regen health thing, or at least make it take 10x as long as it does. They could offer it as part of a hardcore mode at least.

    It would be cool to see it where if you get shot in the let you couldn't run as fast, or if you took one to the arm your aim wasn't as steady.

    Go and play a proper FPs rather than an arcade one then. None of the crap in ArmA or Operation Flashpoint. You take a leg shot, you run more slowly, you get shot again in the legs, you can't stand up (on ArmA 2 at least), so you have to prone around. You can get healed by a medic, but you don't wipe the blood of your face and then magically become a-ok

    Absolutely can't wait to pick this game up. Need to pick up a new graphics card though, as the one on my mobo won't do the job for what I want to see.
