News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront Beta Wasn't Balanced

I figured it was to attempt to be realistic, but yeah... it was definitely unbalanced. Once an AT-AT gets over the rebel spawn, it's just silly.

Must be the time of year all the really awesome games get shallow shitty remakes.

RIP Battlefront and Rainbow Six.

ALso, no bots no sale here.


Honestly, in the beta, I spent 99% of my time in Terrorist Hunt. If they make a few tweaks (like AI not spawning outside) and more map randomness/variety... It's gonna be awesome. Also, as I got my code for free with a GTX 970, I'd expect to be able to find cheap codes ($25ish) online, so it can't be that bad. I'd certainly not pay full price for it as it currently stands though.

Still baffled why they didn't think a Vegas-esque game wasn't worth it though. A 'Vegas 3' with a new engine would have gone soooo well.

Or why Red Storm didn't get to jump onto a new R6? Instead they're off making shitty Far Cry games, and Ghost Recon.

I wish our prison system was better. Even a short stint in prison is extremely unlikely to make a positive change in this guys behavior. People almost always come out worse off than they went in, and more of a threat to society.

We can't let the behavior go unanswered, but at the same time, are we doing more harm than good by converting this social retard into an actual criminal?

I feel like a more creative punishment should be in order. Maybe a ban from computers, and a court order to seek and maintain gainful employment in a low tech field of work. Sort of a rehab for addiction to being an internet fuckwad.

Just one idea.

Yeah, but then we also have privatized prisons who are paid just to have prisoners. So they don't care. It's just livestock to them.

I don't even see why this is news... HL3 is more of a meme than a game anymore.

Love the graphics. I'm not in to buying full priced MP only games though, but I just need remind myself the next Mass Effect will be using this engine and it's all good again. I'll wait.

Nice. Hype. I, too, am already bored of the beta. Hoth is unbalanced, and the lack of team balancing/mixing is just stupid. Lets keep the same teams until everyone leaves!

Very pretty, cinematic game though.

I'm kinda not surprised this is selling so well. I just wish the devs would stop screwing around with content and put out a decent optimization patch. And also re-work dedicated server support, because it's just awful right now. Admin controls are hacked-up in-game UIs that are centered around using cheat codes to get anything done. Still doable, but it's unnecessarily crude and the server doesn't log ANY useful information.

I'd link my friend's server that is fairly popular (a steady playerbase of up to 50ish people at a time) but we just ran into severe server issues overnight and have to switch hosts.

Don't ever use Bluefang Solutions. Very unhelpful server providers.

So... early access, without calling it early access... This is kinda weird. I don't like Square Enix though.

Depressing. People can't look past immediate minor issues and see the big picture. Actually makes me a little sad that's even an article. As if flaunting it at Sonic, hoping for even lower prices.

While I agree, it does look a lot better than the early gameplay they showed. Still a ways to go though... Ubisoft's gonna fuck it up like they manage to with most games, I'm sure.

Looking forward to the... 4-day long closed "beta" with staggered invites despite guaranteed beta access. Grand. Gonna try it at least.

NOW GET THESE FUCKING COUPONS OUT OF MY STEAM INVENTORY

Yessssss. Gave this shitty game to everyone I know that didn't have it, and I still have like 7 of these shits in my inventory...

On a similar note, I got Dying Light recently after they both released a demo, and significantly improved performance from launch, and it's quite awesome. A lot better than Dead Island, but clearly based off of it. I believe Techland made, or had their hand in, Dead Island, but branched off on their own. Soon, they're coming out with a new DLC called The Following, that adds what appears to be a significant amount of content (including a new, completely different zone/terrain).

Absolutely despise these ISPs today, but...

I did contact TWC's support twitter telling them I'm about to cancel because of my high bill ($150/mo for basic cable and 15mbit down/3mbit up internet) and they lowered it by $50 for a year. From one tweet. So if anyone's dealing with a similar bill, I recommend doing that.

Albeit you have to create a twit account (which can be a throwaway! it doesn't have to be tied to your main emails or anything)

120 down/25 up; with OTA channels on a cable box + HBO/HBOGO; $60/mo. Xfinity can be surprisingly easy to haggle down. You just have to find the right person to talk to. If someone can't give you better deal, keep calling until you find someone that will.

Damn, that's pretty nice. I didn't actually get to talk to anyone for this one, though. And I believe they can't/won't change your promo deal until it's over.

I'd honestly cancel cable TV if it weren't for other people in the house. I imagine TWC would charge a similar price for just internet because they're gigantic assholes though.

Can't wait to see how little RP and money you get for these, too... And also what the status is for the online PC multiplayer regarding cheaters. :/

Although the cynic in me wants to take a couple shots at the the "regular updates" and "DLC" sections, the fanboy in me is winning the battle and all I can really say is...

GIVE ME THE DAMN GAME ALREADY.

The cynical fanboy in me is saying this will be the worst Fallout yet. So far from what I've seen, voiced protagonist and limited dialog options, it looks like Fallout 4 will be more FPS like and less of an RPG.

I have to agree. It looks less sandbox-y, less random, more linearly-aimed. I'm not excited for it... Way more excited for XCOM 2!

Ooooh, sweet. I really wanted to get into this on consoles but it had so many issues that come with Japan-developed games. Weird fonts, silly menus, black bars across the screen at all times... I hope it's improved for PC.
