I get to do something cool later today, though mentioning it in advance is not really playing it cool.

STAR WARS??!?


but I'll fill you in tomorrow, at which point it will probably be a "so what?"

Ok, maybe not!


So I'm just setting myself up here. That's me... living on the edge.

You and Aerosmith are going to go see Star Wars together?!


Steven Tyler could go dressed as a hippie Admiral Ackbar. He wouldn't even need makeup to give him a big fish mouth.

On a related note, many many many many moons ago when I worked for Lego I did get to meet Aerosmith during Xmas, and Will Eisner and his wife. Have a photo around here somewhere...

You would be surprised how strict California is about dumping. When I worked for Home Depot or Lowes, one of our stores in California was fined several million dollars for some paint.

For $60 more you can just get a Nexus 7 with 1080p screen and real google OS support.

Where? I need one for work.

I'd like to know this as well.

But visually (just the main characters Assassin's and Templar's) just look fucking UGLY compared to Unity. Granted they took a step back visually from Unity with Syndicate to prevent the issues Unity had (pre-patched), but it very noticeable.

Before I had indoor cats, i still have this monstrous white outdoor cat that between the neighbor and myself have been taking care of for about 5 years.
Then again my indoor cats are actually dogs in cats bodies.

It's shallow, it's a money grab to force the DLC/Season Pass, and is roughly 1/10th the awesomeness of Battlefront 1 and 2.

The best part of Star Wars Battlefront is it only contains content from the original trilogy, the game has amazing visuals and sound that captures the Star Wars atmosphere pretty well.

Once you take all that in you're pretty much done with the game, most people will grind out the weapon and card unlocks or reach max rank of 50 and feel like they've won the game.

It's about a 40 to 50 hour game by design.

They can't win though, if they had made a reskinned version of Battlefield people would have bellyached about it. Giving people the ability to drive AT-AT's would have been a hot mess. They could have destroyed the cinematic themes of the battles from the movies by creating some sort of giant walker for the rebels to use, that would go over like a lead balloon for sure.

The problem is once they got the graphics/maps/sound down (which they nailed) they did little of nothing else to give some meat to the game. Or they have, but are cutting it out of the main game for the OVERPRICED season pass.

They have to get their monies worth out of AC Unity. As far as I can tell it's just a cel-shaded version of Unity's Paris.
