Interesting little article by an ex-truck driver on all the problems with Tesla's new truck.

This ex-trucker has some questions about the Tesla Semi

The seating position visibility issues are actually (mostly) taken care of by the twin LCD screens. During normal driving, they give a view significantly better than rear view mirrors. However, he makes a very good point about forward visibility and having to move over to look past another truck, I didn't think about that.

I don't understand why they did the central seating position, other than a "LOOKITHOWCOOLWEARE!" gimmick. It doesn't work. There's a reason we sit close to the center median depending on which side of the road we drive on.

Sadly, I think disclosing odds will get around the gambling thing in most places. Just they're still going to cry, when they have to do that, because people will realize how low the odds are to get what they want.

I think even if you disclose the odds, it has to become an R rated game? I thought I read that somewhere a few weeks ago.

And yeah, I forgot Holland as well, so 3 countries. It's gambling, countries, please outlaw it.

The console version is already on sale ($20 off) in some of the stores here in Canada.

Hahahaha. Three days after release. That's incredible.

Well, that's better than the 40 hours per character it was at.
It is but I think the damage has been done. It will be interesting to see if this game can recover from the messy start

They'll put it on sale for $30 when the Last Jedi comes out, and sales will be through the roof.

That's 2 countries. The ball is rolling, slowly. I can't wait until countries declare it gambling and it has to stop. The cries of anguish from shitbag publishers will be incredible. It will be the only sound heard around the world.

If Disney wants to get sued, then sure, they'll take the license away from EA.

How long till we get a Battle Royale game in the frostbite engine?

I wouldn't be surprised if Dice is working on one for SWBF2

Seems like a fair list. Not sure if Ashly Burch classifies for a breakthrough award, though. I mean, she's pretty well established by now, but she did a great job, so eh.

Write Ajit Pai a check for $25 (he's a really cheap whore) and he'll be happy to grant you whatever you want.

I guess my issue is how gamers are cherry picking dev's/publishers to go after for nickle and dime'ing them.

Ubisoft gets a pass.
WB Interactive people get mildly angry.
EA... holy shit watch out!

Mildly angry? We bitched about nothing but Shadow of War's loot boxes for like a week straight? Plenty of people didn't buy SoW precisely because of that.

And like I said, fewer people care about the cash grabs in Rainbox Six, because it's not Star Wars.

I wonder what is going on with EA right now. Emergency EA CEO conference with Disney? Why the whales didn't want to get hunted? What went wrong? They must be afraid because their customers stood up to them and the pay2win system. Nothing is worse than fans that are no longer fanatic enough to accept torture.

Honest thoughts? I think Disney is considering acquiring EA, and revamping them to fix the problems they feel they can correct for. It might not be a bad business play, in all honesty. EA has reliably profitable stuff (Madden, FIFA, NHL) and has talent and technology Disney could use to replace the basically-defunct Disney Interactive. It's not a bad proposition for either side, assuming they can some smart people to oversee it.

Disney listens to the same exact overlords.

Huh? As what, EA? They have nothing to do with each other other than that Disney licenses out Star Wars to EA? Confused

So far, reviews are not being kind. They pretty much all skewer the game for its terrible progression system.

It's going to take some major overhaul to fix this shit.

Were you guys trying to gouge the living fuck out of your customers and bleed them of every single penny possible, while pretending that it was "for the best of the game?"

No? Then you did it better than EA did.

Also, Rainbow Six is not Star Wars.

Shitty CGI garbage trailer, no gameplay, no announcement of this before release. Ten year old game that was left in a broken-as-fuck state after its first expansion (with the rubberbanding bullshit.)

Sounds like a winner!

The grind and loot box bullshit would have turned me off already, but the main gameplay hook is just boring as hell to me.

Spawn, run 30 seconds to area where people are fighting. Randomly either see your enemies or not (Seriously, why the hell is this? I see this in every video I've watched. Sometimes the enemies show up, and other times they don't). Spend 30 seconds finding something to shoot. Shoot a few times at an enemy who is 99% likely to be unaware of you. Get killed by an enemy you were unaware of. Respawn. Run 30 seconds to an area where people are fighting. Spend 30 seconds finding something to shoot. Kill a guy. Get a few battle points. Get killed. Respawn. etc etc etc.

Ars' review did summarize it well. The game offers no real tactical options, and the few buffing powers etc that are on offer give NO BP. You only get BP for shooting people, so that's what everyone's doing, because people are trying to get enough BP to buy a hero. So everything just turns into a murder gallery.

They should just make a PUBG star wars mode.

The single player mode is 5 hours, nearly 2 hours of which are cutscenes (as evidenced by the "All the cutscenes!" videos on Youtube.) so it's three hours.

I may get it for 10 bucks at some point, but honestly, I think I'll just forget this exists. Just another fucking waste of what could have been a fantastic Star Wars game, courtesy of EA. Thanks EA. You truly have the leper's touch.

It's "dark and gritty." Inquisitive

Also, what was the last Zack Snyder joint in which dozens of people didn't die?
Batman v Superman was 2 hours of my life that I will never get back.
Also gonna skip Justice League.

2 hours? Did you show up late? That shit ran for THREE HOURS...
