Battlefield 4 - Page 7

post #91 of 267

KK Ethan.. will buy it.. always wanted to buy it. Sound engine wise though.... what's it like?

post #92 of 267
A lot like BF3, though the actual sounds are better. Positioning is the same as bf3, so good but not amazing. Also, to be clear, I was saying to buy if you can get base game + premium for $60, which would be like half price.

Not yet mate..still leaving players on 0% health..getting shot around corners..wait for it to be on offer then get it!

TY for the reply Ethan... yeah BF4 would seem to be all in your face wall of sound, like a Michael Bay film as opposed to subtle stuff. Try out Insurgency, which has been fully released on Steam .. sound whoring is win on that. It's actually old school and excellent.. great in game for comms too.

Looks awesome there SaLX. Great for the red team. And BF4's audio is the best i have heard in ANY game to date!! Not close to lossless music yet, but much improved. Make sure you have some headphones that have a huge bass punch so you can really feel those explosions. 

 

And yes a couple minor bugs for me, but no game breakers. Still fun as hell!

I have to say, the DMR's are so much more fun to use now. Close range they're are still not all that great (apart from the SKS with laser, that thing is pretty decent close up) but that's to be expected.

 

As far as game breaking bugs go, the CTD when getting into the gunner seat on a MBT is pretty bloody annoying. Especially if you're carrying the bomb in obliteration... Apart from that the no sound bug is also pretty damn annoying and it looks like the 0% HP bug is back again.

Ninja.. what's your preferred headphone for this game? I'm guessing it's your K702's, but I'm particularly interested how the Alpha Dogs do.

I have mainly been using my Alpha Dogs recently just to put some serious time on it. They do well enough though of course you're not going to get the same insane sound-stage that the K702 offers. Having said that BF4 (and BF3) aren't games where you really need super accurate positional audio for the most part. Most games are played out on huge maps with constant gunshots/explosions going on around making for a very imersive experience but not one that really benefits much from super accurate audio. There are some exceptions to this such as when you are camping as a sniper, or back raging/flanking on Operation Locker. Most of the time though, you're better off getting a pair of fun (i.e slightly bass and treble emphasized) headphones to give you a better sense of immersion rather than ultimate detail whoring.

Thanks for the reply Ninja.. yeah I'm sure once I buy it soon it will be more a home theatre or cinematic experience audio wise, as opposed to pin point accuracy gaming. I have Philips X1's for that, and I'm sure they'll deliver in spades.

Woah, just unlocked the ACE 53SV and it is a beast. Had a lot of fun playing with this on Obliteration.

 

...But now it seems like I'm having some kind of DirectX error and I can't even get in game.

In other news, Titan Mode is coming back!

"In other news, Titan Mode is coming back!"

 

WOOHOO!

post #104 of 267
That's cool, I never got to try 2142.
post #105 of 267
How is Titan Mode going to work in a present-day setting? Giant blimps instead of BF2142's huge floating sci-fi ships?

I just hope it plays nice with the netcode this time. BF2142 is the only game since BF1942 to have huge ships one can walk and fight in, on and around...
