Will the Battlefield 3 servers work this weekend? Will Origin remain operational? Can EA/DICE not screw up a Battlefield launch for once?

What's everyone playing while the servers are down?
  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Trying to determine my feelings on Battlefield 3. Finally did the ludicrous port thing recommended by EA and it seemed to make a difference. When open NATs and DMZ aren't enough.
  • Arthur Gies (@Aegies): I've got to put some major time into Assassin's Creed: Revelations this weekend, since it's that time of year. When I'm not doing that, or hating Justin McElroy, I'll probably fling myself against the rocks of Battlefield 3's server issues.
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): I'd play Battlefield 3 if I could (no, not single-player, stop it), but I'll likely be falling back on all these other triple-A games instead. Dipping my toe into Batman, still loving Forza 4 (it's an RPG! seriously!), and escaping the Ark into Rage's wasteland.
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): With the final Riddler challenge completed in Arkham City, I think it's time for me to put Batman away and spend some more time with Battlefield. Now, about those multiplayer servers ...
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Halloween in the city this weekend means I'll likely be hitting up a few parties and neglecting my Okama Gamesphere. If I do manage to get some gaming in, it'll probably be the usual suspects: Gears 3, Batman and Battlefield 3.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): Til' the day I die, I'm gonna touch the sky. (Rim.)
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm going to keep playing Batman: Arkham City, and WB's going to keep being glad I didn't review it.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): [...]
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): [...]
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): Haven't decided.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): Prediction: I'll play Pixeljunk Sidescroller and Battlefield 3 all weekend long! Reality: Riddler trophies forever.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): In between Halloween parties, I'll be getting further along in Batman, and also learning how to play Starcraft 2. I got outright embarrassed at BlizzCon in multiplayer last week, so I need to sit down and figure out this whole "RTS genre" thing.
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): While I'd like to get some Battlefield 3 in, I've got a Halloween shindig to go to. So that probably means The Dark Meadow on iPhone and maybe some Dance Central.
  • Steven Wong: If the servers allow, I'll try to get in some time with Battlefield 3. Otherwise, I'll be getting into the Halloween spirit with Killing Floor.
