I have no hope for Star Wars BF...coop against bots

I miss bots. No bots, no sale. Otherwise I'm renting a game with a short lifespan when they turn off the servers.

? There are third party servers for all BF games.

The server code for Battlefield games since Bad Company 2 exist only from paid hosting services, no public server files are available.

If/When EA decides to end-of-life say Bad Company 2 then you won't be able to play multiplayer anymore.

It's sort of a stupid argument, when was the last time you booted up BF1942?

Actually wanted to play BF42 a few weeks ago, but couldn't find my disks, so I ended up playing the AIX mod for BF2. I still have a hankering for BF42 and BF Nam.

So the Vikings pillaged but didn't rape? Well that was decent of them. I always wondered where the British got their manners. Now we know.

I have no hope for Star Wars BF. The old one is still played because you can host your own server and play offline or in coop against bots. I doubt the new one will offer either.

If you really could play a game for 14 days then return it for a refund, that would be enough time to finish most games!
Yeah. Still Valve could track your play time and refund it if you have say less than 2 hours played. That should be enough to tell if your system had issues with the game.

Honestly I don't mind if it's a multiplayer only game if it has offline bot support a la UT. That's not what I am seeing here though.

I think it has more to do with Steam's monopoly position. Unlike the ISP market there's lots of competition.

Lots of ISP competition? Since when? Maybe you don't live in the US where the ISPs divide up cities and agree not to compete.

You misread me: Unlike the ISP market, there is lots of competition (in the digital games download market).

It's weird, because you said "Steam's monopoly position" with no qualifier. If they were a total monopoly there wouldn't be any competition.
Yeah I should have qualified near monopoly due to their dominant but not exclusive position. We've seen Steam's market erode tbe past few years so I think more competition is both good and working.

Read: We realize what people really want is a modern update of the original, not some online-only, multiplayer only, MOBA-like reboot of the franchise! Please help us fund our KS!! Please???

I dunno, I think they screwed up on this one. Should have got SP first, then made MP a goal.

And this is how you fight piracy. No mandatory online shit, no DRM shit, just provide a great service and people will have incentive to buy it.

Not that EA or Ubisoft will ever understand this.

It is surprisingly effective too. Tell people you pirate The Witcher and they will call you a number of names. There is a social pressure to not pirate games from good companies.

I wonder if that's true outside of Europe/USA.

The analogy is true in another way too. Like Ebola, Google fiber showed up in just a few locations in the US and then spread to nowhere else. At its current rate of growth it will be a threat to Comcast and TWC in around the year 2142.
Very good. Please keep on believing that, and convince all your friends.

Not sure what you're referring too? Google is only in a few locations in the US, and only adds a few additional locations a year. As for Ebola, the few vectors into the US were quickly and easily quashed. There are currently none in the country, and the disease is no threat to a first world nation with a powerful healthcare infrastructure and capable government. Ebola combines high lethality with low virulency, so it is easily contained. And even that lethality can be mitigated if found early enough.

So, that's good news.
indeed, I enjoy playing games like CS and Insurgency against bots, I'd hate to see this one MP only

Insurgency is a bit of pain to set up to play against bots. Wish they'd just update the UI to allow it.

Hey, I made a couple of the AI navmeshes for maps for that mod. Glad you are *still* enjoying it!

Too bad more games don't have the mod and AI support that BF2 did. Shame that DICE let it die from their games. Hopefully someone can do some magic with the new UT engine.

seriously, what exactly do you want from a game?

1. Offline single player mode vs. bots, and coop with my brother vs. bots.

2. Modability.

Hell, I would have bought it if they included just 1.

*goes back to plaing BF2 mod AIX*

Every year for about 2 weeks I fire that thing up and get totally addicted to AIX2. I don't even bother with vanilla BF2. I either play it alone (love cruising around in an Apache or Havoc blasting tanks, jeeps, and soldiers) or with my brother coop vs. computer. Thanks for making it a reality. I'd easily pay $60 for a modern version of that. I've literally gotten hundreds of hours of gameplay from that mod over the years.

So pissed that BF3 and 4 nixed modding. Is there a modern version of AIX2 for something that allows modding with more graphical fidelity like UT3 or Arma 3?

Fuck that's the tenth time I've watched some iteration of that guy, and I'm still bursting into stitches. So funny.

I wonder if Squadron 42 will have any FPS segments. That would be cool.
It will. The idea is that it will basically show off all the different game mechanics, while providing a compelling narrative. The Shubin Mining Station alone is six kilometres in size, one of the largest indoor environments in the game.

That is really awesome to hear. I think they're doing an excellent job with the world building for this game, so I'm excited to play through a campaign in it.
