Sad part is you know they made this announcement
As of May 31, 2014, online functionality, including network multiplayer and wireless chat, will no longer be available for this title. We regret any disappointment as a result of the shutdown of the services supporting these online features.
about Battlefront II because they knew people would eat up the new stuff.

Do people still play Battlefront II? Are there rouge servers?

They are 110% cashing in on the Star Wars name, as the game is pretty terrible. Morons will buy this and the lackluster game development will continue.

$50 season pass. Rather ballsy...


BF3 and 4 both went to $5.00, not that long after they were released. I see this game tanking big time, with the server numbers growing when the price adjusts to $5.00 accordingly.

Indigenous People's Day? How about "The Indigenous People Were Too Fucking Weak To Defend Themselves So They Lost And Proved Darwin's Natural Selection Theory Day"

The idea that Columbus may have done controversial things does not change the historical moment in time when he arrived. It's much like saying you should start a campaign to negate the importance of your own parents because you found out they did something "controversial" in the years before they brought you into the world.

Considering the fact that most, if not all, US presidents have done plenty of very controversial (and some just plain criminal) things while in office, why do we still have a fucking "Presidents Day"?

Your point is a bit over the top, but I too have grown weary of the PC push in the US. They have recently renamed a lake in Minneapolis as well. I just don't get it.

Looking to get back into this, probably just start over. I played when it first came out and got to the castle and stopped. Sounds like enough has been worked on that i can pick it up again.

I don't understand why Blue and other sites continue to let this guy have postings and links. A cry baby who can't even finish his own games, let alone release anything worth playing.

Lets see.....oh, nice, look at THOSE STATS! Quotes praising the game to no end with no citations. Oh, and love the VAST number of people that play the game! Players max in the last few months is 12. I believe the game ever only had a max population of less than 80 people! He goes on to talk about how awesome he is in the forums of the game.

DS is a failure. So he feels the need to poke at others. He is a bully. Nothing more.

Anyone else just get an email for Amazon "Prime Now"? 2 hour delivery on items with a 20$ off coupon. Going to try it out.....(Appears Minneapolis just joined the fun, but other cities have been available for a while)

Interesting. Items appear to be same price as online, they didn't charge me tax (weird), but there is a "tip" amount included in your order. In this case it was $6.00, which I left, as the amount of the goods and the coupon made it worth trying. It also states the tip can be changed up to 48 hours after the order is delivered. There is a delivery time option which in the future time is FREE (in this case 4 hours from now), but if you want it right now it will cost you.

Interesting.....this could be a game changer. (It also appears to show a map of where the items are - which it seems there is an Amazon warehouse not far from my house!?)

I didn't get anything like that, but I might be getting same day delivery here soon. I discovered a few weeks ago that Amazon now has a warehouse about an hour from where I live. I placed an order on a Thursday and Prime shipping guaranteed a Monday delivery. I was worried Saturday when my stuff hadn't shipped yet. I got an email Monday morning saying it shipped with an estimated delivery the same day, and it was here less than 12 hours later.

It is weird, the item was supposed to be here between 4-6pm. He is a couple cities away, this "Ahmed" is driving all around I assume with all of his deliveries.....the program is like Uber, I can see where he is. But there is a warehouse about 16 blocks from my house in Minneapolis....so not sure where he got the goods from....

Bummer....was hoping this was a better product - not impressed.

//Dude showed up at 7pm. With 4 packages, but I only ordered 3. I called Amazon and they told me to keep it or throw it away, then added $10 dollars credit to my account. Not a great start for them....All 4 packages had my name and info on them. Why would you print 4 stickers for 3 items? Whatever.

Spent 10 seconds in the game and was instakilled in spawn by a strafer across the map ala the console vids we saw. *sigh

Other than gameplay:
Pros:
They have 3 colorblind variations
FOV slider
Can remap keys
Looks great
Ran smooth

Cons:
Although keys remap, you have to go delete the duplicate. wtf.
Was partnered with Half Elf, but we were put on different teams!?
There was a queue to get into a game!?

Little snowflake was used to his mommy back at no one gives a shit city USA doing whatever he asked for.

/manager didn't do anything but escalate. Cops, bartenders, and waitresses. We all know one very very important life rule: You never engage in an argument with a drunk idiot. Just let them go on their tirade as you usher them out. (usually by the back of the pants or belt works nicely)

College has taught him an unforgiving life lesson, not unlike herpes. He better change his name - cause Google and the internet just f'd you FOR LIFE! Good luck getting a decent job EVER!

Not once. Not ever, has anyone EVER got what they wanted by starting a sentence with "Just gimmie...."

THE single most important part of that video with John Oliver on Mental Health

"fewer than 5% of the 120k gun related killings...were perpetrated by people diagnosed with mental illness".

Media is in an uproar when a "mass shooting" happens. Yet everyday more people die in Chicago and it gets zero press.

I am not saying either is ok, but it is sexy to talk about Mental Illness and Guns. Yet, nothing will be done about it.....sad really.

To the white knights this whole thing is one big conspiracy theory orchestrated by Derek Smart.

It's not like Derek Smart was the first one to think this wasn't passing the sniff test. He did back it after all, when plenty of others knew it had 'potential scam' written all over it.

I believe over half of us on this site called scam within a couple weeks of the numbers becoming astronomical. We all pointed to failed projects and lack of responsibility by CR. We just don't have a full time job of asshatery like DS to go to the lengths he did. You see, MOST of us have common sense....

2. Countries with strict gun control laws simply don't have mass shootings. Japan has not had a single one, despite having more mental illness on average than the USA. Australia had a 35 person mass murder in 1996, enacted strict gun control, and has had only one mass shooting since then killing 3 people. Great Britain has had two in the past 20 years. We average two per year.

What's the source and criteria/definition for 2 per year? It seems to me it should be much higher. This site suggests 75 shootings with 3+ deaths in 2013, 60 in 2014 and 54 so far in 2015.

I'm reading the links people have provided regarding mental health reform, and it seems extremely difficult to eliminate this kind of incident through treatment. If someone doesn't want to be treated, and possibly his family doesn't want them treated, then you're talking about the government making its own evaluation, breaking down someone's door and then taking them away and forcing treatment. It sounds highly problematic.

I feel like the milder step would be to provide a mental evaluation for people who threaten shootings, hear voices in their head, or exhibit the other behaviors described in those articles and restrict their access to firearms if deemed a threat, but at the same time this would trigger a political controversy over the government taking guns away from people it doesn't like. But forcibly medicating or otherwise altering their behavior doesn't sound like any less of a civil liberty issue.

We take guns away from individuals that commit domestic assault. They then must go through a process of getting them back with the courts - which they give them back, and we have had them use them on their spouse after the court gives them back.

The courts need major overhauls.
