Here's a riddle to get your morning chugging: what's oafish, uncoordinated and in a permanent state of near-death? Answer: Me! Playing the Battlefield 3 beta on Xbox 360. DICE may have tweaked the classes and certain abilities to accommodate greenhorns, but Evans-Thirlwell incompetence laughs at such paltry measures. Laughs, I tell you.
For more about Operation Metro, check out the hands-on we published yesterday evening. If you're participating in the beta (which goes fully public tomorrow), do let us know how you're getting on.
CVG also has a Battlefield 3 video, with 10 minutes of (hawk, spit) PS3 footage. Have a look if you must.
