Should I preorder Battlefield 4 for the beta?

Kind of tempted by that, TBH. Merely on the fence about it being a lot more like Battlefield 3.2/3.3 than another $50 game. Sort of a build up from what BF3 could have/should have been in a number of ways, but fell short from.

I inevitably squeezed over 500 hours of playtime from BF3...so I don't think it'd be unjustified to buy it. >_>

At the moment, the only thing that has me on the fence is my utter fury at their non-handling of the current BC2 issues. They'll be hearing about that one every last bug report and feature comment I file, as well as from the Better Business Bureau.

As for it being Battlefield 3.5, the hell did people expect? Vietnam was 1942.5, 2142 was BF2.5, and BC2 was BC1.7 (lotta people derp out on that one and forget BC existed). You're basically only going to see a "new" game by the completely arbitrary standards some seem to have whenever they do a massive change of engine.

A year later, halfway through the game's lifecycle. Yeah, better yet wait till it's 5 bucks in 2016 when BF5 and Battlefront 3 are out and you've got 5 bots and a guy named phil to play with.

Phil never forgets.

Phil is always there. Phil welcomes all. Phil knows all. Phil sees all. He is the one.

Yes, THAT one.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

For what it's worth, the coupon code sent out to email inboxes said that "Having bought an FPS game from GMG previously, your account has been selected for a 20% off voucher".

Could be restricted to qualifying accounts, for all I know.

What was the coupon code?

Edit: And would I still get access to the beta if I use it?
