If you wear your outdoor shoes inside I'd invest in a steam cleaner.

Between this and the Endor levels in Battlefront I really want an updated version of Trespasser.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront Released
41. Re: Star Wars Battlefront Released Nov 17, 2015, 15:23 DangerDog
 
In May 2013, publisher Electronic Arts obtained exclusive rights to develop Star Wars games for gaming consoles, and its subsidiaries DICE, Visceral Games, and BioWare started work on Star Wars games.[19][20] DICE first acknowledged the game at Electronic Arts' E3 2013 press conference, along with a teaser trailer.

They supposedly built Battlefront from the ground up without recycling code from Battlefield. The technique they used to capture the Star Wars models and real life terrain has most definitely raised the bar in terms of graphic fidelity, the next Battlefield game is going to require them to step up their game for sure.

While there isn't any huge set piece destruction elements and the maps aren't massive the load times in this game are impressive, even the matchmaking isn't some lengthy painful test of your patients.

Almost every review I've seen ends with major concern about longevity beyond a few weeks, as this game is far too simple, featureless and casual.

It's more of an interactive Star Wars art exhibit, you can only geek out to the imagery on display for so long.

People today play for things like rank and unlocks which is very limited in this game so once they burn through the rank system and unlock all the weapons the "urge" to continue to play will be lost for most.

The people waiting on the sidelines for a super sale will probably have a hard time playing modes that won't maintain enough players and you're more likely to encounter players who sit 24/7 flying the space ships and will smear you across the map every time you spawn.

The way these multiplayer games work is you play with the roaming heard and they have a sharp drop off in players a month or two out.

Titanfall, Evolve, Battlefield Hardline are just a few I've personally experienced this with recently.

News Comments > Green Man Gaming Defends Key Sources
15. Re: Green Man Gaming Defends Key Sources Nov 17, 2015, 04:35 DangerDog
 
GMG sourced global region keys for Star Wars Battlefront but apparently they're tied to the UK release date so people have to wait till the 19th to get their key.

I think people are being a little silly with their demands, they discounted the game %20 - %25 which is quite good for a new game.

I've never had any issues with keys purchased from GMG.

Whenever I see the "Black Friday" words, I think of the walmart youtube videos where people are fighting each other, and stomping over people when the gate opens. :/

That's how poor people do it, everyone else uses the internet.

I'm calling shenanigans over that Fallout 4 LEGO Recreation, where are these people finding that kind of quantity of grey lego bricks.

I still remember when lego was just a couple of primary colors, the founder of lego would only allow the bricks to be made in certain colors from what I've read. This was intentional to keep kids from building tanks or other war related things.

And Windows 10 can outperform it while logging your data to send to third parties!

Has this really been proven? I'm talking about Microsoft cataloging the files on your hard drive type snooping.

It seems if you want to avoid the targeted advertising stuff it's pretty simple to mitigate.

7. Re: Star Wars: Battlefront Reddit Issues Nov 13, 2015, 15:50 DangerDog
 
They banned the guy from DICE and then he tweeted something about telling the devs to only post on their official forums, some of the DICE guys still post on the subreddit.

The latest wonder blunder is making the only customization option for Stormtroopers is removing your helmet and choosing a human head. After the first few hours of gameplay instead of the game looking like Star Wars it's just going to look like a bunch of generic soldiers running around in white body armor.

Oh, so Tim uh how do those apps in the apple app store get made? You mean you can author them using the ipad pro?

Apple and Microsoft both would like to kill off the desktop and have everyone only buy software from their app stores. Just like back in the day when IBM had it locked down where you could only lease software for mainframe computers from them.

Probably not as impressive as they would like it to be, the marketing budget for these games is in the hundreds of millions isn't it?

Just played the campaign, started off strong and then went from meh to what's that smell? Did I step in some dog shit? I would say it's the worse single player campaign yet, they really went overboard with their nonsensical artsy fartsy "inception" level design towards the end. It should have been all high-tech futuristic city-scapes. The only people masochistic enough to play this through co-op would have to be doing it just to make fun of how bad the game is.

I don't think Steam Machines are going to be a thing, way too many people are going to be confused thinking they can run all PC games from them.

I don't think that's going to get fixed (mouse input), seems like it's an engine thing though I'm not privy to how other CoD games handled it.

I was able to get acceptable performance by lowering some settings, I'm also not running 144hz monitor.

The campaign really did take a turn for the worse as you progress, they had an opportunity to make an action focused game with co-op but instead injected all this lame "story" composition, they even did the lame long slow "walk" mode lock down while the characters blather on about shit you don't care about. None of the levels cater to the parkour wall walking, sure you can use it here and there but it's not functional to being something you use strategically.

All the nonsense of "shoot this handful of enemies, move forward, shoot another handful that just spawned, repeat 39 times and then you win" is really, really dull.

Call of Duty is everyone's favorite game to bash but you can just as easily tear apart every game genre under the premise of there not being anything new besides better graphics year in, year out.

I really doubt you'll have any revolutionary interactions with the AI enemies in Fallout 4 for example.

Things were looking so good back in the day of Quake and the Reaper Bot, I don't understand why there is such a lack of emphasis on AI programming since then, or at least it feels that way.

Other than that everything can be broken down to a formula of repetition with a slight variation in art style. If you take the "Star Wars" element out of the upcoming Battlefront game and replaced everything with generic soldiers I know my interest in playing it would probably drop off to near zero.

Sometimes we fight around here as if we all don't have the same gaming goals.. it's rather disheartening. I honestly think us PC gamers here at Blues should be better people.. we're more informed, we're game-smarter, we're critical when we need to be.. etc. I think we're too harsh on each other. I think we lose sight on what's important and resort to name calling.

Anyhow, I will report back this weekend on how the game runs on my new rig.. hoping it works. I had to buy the game just to support a developer that has come out and made statements like they did regarding mapping, modding, the server browser...

while I appreciate the gesture of modding etc I somehow doubt this will be a good platform people are like moths to a flame when it comes to playing for "stats" on ranked servers.
