Dinosaurs in Battlefield 3?

From all the demos of BF3 it seems like they are going for the whole Generation Kill feeling by humanizing the soliders instead of making them nameless robots. I guess EA is taking a page from Rockstar by copying HBO to guarantee a hit. It's smart because it's the proper alternative to Call of Duty. I can't wait to play it.

It's a trinket the main character's son gave to him. The voices you hear in the background at the beginning and the big TO DAD written in crayon should convey this. It's a part of their attempt to immerse you and make you feel like you're playing a person, not just a nameless, faceless soldier.

Shit will not go all Super Mario Bros The Movie at any point.

@billyhoush@MrKlorox@Yanngc33@big_jon:  You guys missed the point here.. read the tweet and look at the 4chan screenshot linked in that tweet. It's too funny 
 
 
However, i'm sorry to disappoint you @TimesHero:  but Karl Magnus tweeted that it was not intentional

That's hilarious if they actually did make the trinket from the kid a dinosaur because of that thread.

If this game really had dinosaurs I'd actually be interested in playing it.

It's the interwebs, nobody actually reads the threads ;)

There was a 4chan thread, where everyone complained over a lack of dinasours in MW2 when asked why it sucked by Activision. When BF3 came out it had a dinasour in it, to humour 4chan or more specificallly /v/. To amplify the proof he posted a tweet aboout the dinosaur being in game.

If only because the late great Dennis Hopper cannot be involved.

If dinosaurs were in that game, I'd be way more interested.

It's embarrassing how many of you couldn't be bothered to actually read the links in the OP. If you had, maybe you wouldn't have made posts that made you look stupid. 
 
That /v/ thread was pretty golden.

How could one miss it? Speaks volumnes about war. War never does something or other.
