So silly. All LucasArts has to do is listen to the fanbase, release a reboot of Tie Fighter and watch the cash roll in!

It would be stuck in 3rd person view with motion controllers being the main focus.

That sucks, I was actually looking forward to 1313.

maybe, until you actually got to play it and found it to be nothing but a linear short game with a lackluster story.

I still think their "demo" was a total B.S. target render of what they wished the game would play like.

Almost all of Lucasarts favorite games were made by out of studio companies, one can assume that the licensing fees would be so high that it would be in the realm of extreme risk to take on making a Star Wars game. Until it's proven that the next Star Wars film can bring the fans back around I wouldn't expect anyone willing to take that step, Star Wars and Indiana Jones seem very toxic right now.

Disney is mostly known for pump-and-dump game development, even if they handed over the license for Star Wars to DICE to make a proper battlefront game I wouldn't expect them to understand the benefits of long term support.

That was probably the most unimpressive and boring tech demo I've ever seen.

As a piece of storytelling, it's pretty crappy, but as a tech demo, it's impressive for a real time render. I'm curious why you found it unimpressive.

I think it's because we've been duped into this sort of marketing spin way too many times, I'll remain jaded until games are released that actually look and play like this demo.

most entertaining thing to come out of making this game, looks like Shatner needs to cut back on the Gorn stew.

If it's true this is rendered in real time on a single card (and they say it is), it's pretty damn amazing.


Doesn't mean that games will look this good though, think back to all those fancy in engine cut scenes and how the actual game graphics were much lower in fidelity, animation not as smooth etc.

With no physx on consoles I wonder what the physics setup is for UE4? Are they sticking with physx at all on the PC?

Don't see any upside more than BF3 already has...no bots, not very interested.

The playerbase will implode when BF4 is released, if you want to keep playing Battlefield multiplayer you'll need to purchase #4.

I'll get Arma 3 if it offers bot matches.

That's pretty much what Arma 3 is, the PvP just isn't much fun. It's mostly co-op against enemy AI units.

Hmm I like the maps in conquest, ctf really depends on how much teamwork is taking place. The rush mode for the maps are lacking.

anyways

Ue3 sucked so they better step up here.

What didn't you like and what engines did you feel were better?

Or is this one of those standard "UE3 sucks but I have nothing to back it up with" arguments?

Let's start with texture pop-up, very few games that used the engine properly dealt with that issue.

You really have to work hard to remove the feeling that you're playing a mod for Unreal Tournament 3 and way too many games just felt like lazy game developers recycling the included assets with the dev kit over and over again.

The physics in the engine always felt like a "good enough" check box feature and always tainted games in a bad way, most egregiously with anything trying to implement vehicles were just plain awful 90% of the time.

Those are some of my gripes, I can only think of a few games that overcame the deficiencies - Mirrors Edge for example and DICE replaced a lot of the subsystems included by default. Just replacing the lighting was a huge improvement.

More graphics fluff that you'll want to disable in some .ini buried in the install folder.

They're really going to push tessellation as a massive, huge deal because console gamers haven't experienced it at all.

meanwhile the enemy AI will still respond like a box of rocks.

It's because they locked EVERYTHING behind that smarmy freemium 'progression.' You have to spend a few hours playing just to unlock the ability to have and use a hand grenade...

It was more than that, the graphics were so effed up and the player movement felt really bad. Massive step back from BF2.

It's like all these games that have been released since the original Tribes came out, none of them could get the skiing down to the way it was - even Tribes 2 felt sluggish to the original. If you can't nail down the player movement then everything from there on out is going to be crap.

I don't know how they could have made the free2play version worse than Battlefield 2 but they did.

I played probably two or three rounds before uninstalling.

Ben Cousins was an idiot, I'm glad he left DICE.

Adam had a good run at it, I imagine they kicked him to the curb because he was getting too old. Media is a youth centric culture.
