Is it brand new or did you buy used? The idle temps are slightly high but normal. BF3 is an intense game that will get any laptop hot. Perhaps try a cooler.

That's a really high room temp, i wouldn't worry to much. A CPU is cooled by the air around it, if that air is hot the CPU is hot.

Depending on how confident/skilled you are you can change out the thermal paste for MX-4 or similar high performance TIM.

I did that on mine and it runs 5-10degC cooler @ full load.

It may be kind of a hastle, but they do sell laptop mats that incorporate fans on them in order to cool the laptop externally. I believe some may be battery operated but most likely require a plug in, although I believe I may have seen one that allowed you to plug your laptop right into the pad which was then connected to the wall.
