Umm, what bots? There has been no announcement that bots will be in the game.

I've actually been one of the minority waiting for well over a decade now for bots to make a return to BF MP maps and the confirmation that there will be no SP campaign (thank god, because a linear hand holding trout pond is not my idea of something worth paying for) is actually a step in the right direction in getting those bots back (ala BF2142).

Second paragraph down Eurogamer article:

There will also be the option of playing against AI bots, either solo or with a squad of friends.
This is better explained in this article I found.


Bots in full multiplayer modes with solo-play option! HOLY HELLS YES!!! I have been begging them to bring this back since BF3. Multiplayer is fun, but some days I just want to comp stomp and not deal with actual humans.

If the gameplay looks good, I'll be diving head-first into this battlefield.

My biggest complaint with PoE is that it has an advancement system with almost infinite possibilities as you can wield any weapons, use any skills, and take any passives... but the list of builds that are actually viable for all this end-game content is extremely short. You can make it up as you go and be completely useless at higher levels, with very limited respec options, or you can follow someone else's build guide, which takes a lot of the fun out of the game.

Tyranny is fantastic, one of the best RPGs I've ever played. A shame it was almost completely overlooked when it came out, as it's only real weakness is the lack of a sequel

I'm really looking forward to this. I loved what I played of the PS4 version, but controllers wear me down.

Eager to play all the way through with mouse and keyboard.

What a mess this game is.

PROS:
- No competing products
- Destroying cities can be fun

CONS:
- Dated visuals
- Lacklustre sound design
- Derivative/cliched story with absolutely terrible writing and flat voice acting
- Little sense of weight to the mechs
- Fights are twitchy and chaotic rather than slow and deliberate
- Every mission feels stupidly easy or unfairly difficult
- Simplistic mech customisation options

I doubt I'll launch it again without some major mods installed.

In case you are like me and just wanted to know what the new mechs are without having to watch the video, they are:

Assassin, Flea, Archer, Rifleman, Phoenix Hawk, Vulcan, Annihilator and
Bullshark.

And no, they aren't using the original "lost mech" designs for the ARcher, Rifleman and Phoenix Hawk (although the Archer is very close to infringing).

The DLC comes alongside a free to all update that adds the Warhammer and Marauder (also using MWO artwork), as well as actual mod support. HBS are actively working with the Roguetech/Modtek teams on this.

Looks okay, but it is not designed for people with slower internet speeds (like me). SteamWebHelper was constantly downloading and ignored my download speed limit, so I've reverted back to non-beta.

I'm hoping this change stays optional at least until something better than ADSL2 is available in my area.

I was on the fence with this one. It would have been a pre-order if not for the EGS deal. Having read these reviews I think I'll wait until the game gets some fixes and expansions.

The Steam release will probably be the best time to jump aboard.

Who is in charge of this mess? It's like someone who don't even know what Star Wars is, or had a very faint idea, had a checklist of "cool stuff bruh" he wanted in a game and just got'em in, never wondering if it fit the vast already plenty rich lore... Such a lack of creativity to do something new with existing tools, nah, let's just F the lore with new tools instead that have no part of the rich lore.

For someone who says "lore" a lot it feels like you've never really watched the movies.

Hmm as much as I loved Baldur's Gate and its implementation of Vancian magic I think I'd rather have an Original Sin 3. Baldur's Gate is good and I would have loved to have played a Baldur's Gate 3 five or more years ago but nowadays I have much more fun with with the systems from the Original Sin games.

I think that the turn-based combat, spell/environmental interactions and roleplaying flexibility of DOS1&2 would be a perfect match for a modern D&D video game. In fact I'm replaying BG2 right now and just this week found myself thinking "Man, the only studio I'd trust with BG3 would be Larian."

Browsing this store is still ludicrously clunky. No categories, no tags, just a bunch of thumbnails which tell you nothing about what kind of games you're looking at.

I'm actually referencing my *Steam wishlist* to search for titles on the EGS. No matches/discounts found so far.

Good. Go the fuck out of business. Make room for more CDPRs.

That's not how it works. One less video game publisher doesn't mean everyone else gets a bigger slice of the pie. It just means there's less competition, players have fewer options, and a lot of good, hardworking folk have lost their jobs simply for doing what they were told to do.

Bwahahaha!

While it sucks to be layed off, I can say from personal experience that EA really do take good care of people when this happens.

After mass layoffs at BioWare Austin, EA arranged to have recruiters from studios all across the country come to put on a jobs fair across the road from the studio, exclusively for those of us who were now unemployed. Severance was generous, my relocation back to Australia was fully covered, and when I mentioned my frustration at having to sell my recently purchased car at a loss, EA paid me the difference.
