ID:	597101The Battlefield 3 early access beta has been up and running for a few hours now. For those that are already playing impressions seem very positive. A marked improvement over Bad Company 2, it's proving a thoroughly enjoyable experience even without vehicles. The weapons all feel great and importantly so does the movement. Oh, and Battlelog is really neat.

    It's not all peaches and cream however, with numerous eligible readers here at GU not receiving their beta keys at all. EA Australia have requested those with problems contact support, so head on over, log-in and get a live chat going: If no one is available, head to EA support here:

    Unfortunately attempts seem futile at this stage, with responses such as the following:

    Well the beta is not launched yet and we do not have any such official update about the launch time of the early access.
    Gagan: We do not have any such official update about the official time of launch.

    Harshdeep: We are glad to see your excitement for the Battle! You will get the Early Access Beta Key today; however, as of now we don't have any ETA. Please wait for only a few hours and you will get an Email with the key in your account. We appreciate your patience and I hope to see you soon in the Battlefield!
    Harshdeep: We understand your disappointment. As a small token of appreciation of your patience, I'm giving you 15% discount coupon which would be valid for a month and can be redeemed on Origin Store. Please keep checking your inbox and we'll meet in the Battlefield!

    If anyone finds a sharp and snappy way to get this resolved, please let us know!

      LOL the price on Xbox live was to stop people from downloading it early.

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta impressions
    by rec
    I've been shooting some face in the CS:GO beta for the first time this evening, and there's quite a bit to talk about. I should preface this impressions article with the note that while I used to play at a national level, it has been years since I've delved into any CS in any serious capacity. I'm sure there will be a number of current day elitists out there who disagree with my opinions, but I'm not claiming this as gospel, so append as much or as little weight to these opinions as you care to....
