God, what have they done to this franchise?

With Clancy dead it feels like his family will license his name to anyone and for anything. Sad really.

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone in actually being turned off by weapon crafting zaniness and the general over-the-top guns, without hard games keep pushing that sort of stuff.

Nope, not alone. I have skipped plenty of games because I grew tired of crafting a rock, stick and twine to make a bow and arrow.

Just give me some melee weapons and firearms. I do appreciate games that modify such items though in that perhaps they get damaged as they are used or perhaps firearms that jam.

Is there a way to play this without all the MP stuff baked into the main game?

The last time there was a free weekend I thought I'd check it out since I love Wildlands so much.

Well, okay, the first five minutes of gameplay is cool but then I go to this rebel "base" and I see all these dudes running around with their gamer tags over their head. Kinda took me out of the game world and immersiveness.

Not only that, the UI looks expressly designed for MP (at least it looks like they REALLY want you to play mp).

I love the concept of this game and played the first iteration.

I just wish they designed it like L4D and gave me some ai buddies.

Sadly no. I worked on that mod making AI navmeshes for some of the maps. Those were the good old days. The battlefieldsingleplayer.com website went offline last year. There is an archive of it somewhere and most of the files can now be found on moddb.

I will have to check out that BFBC2 mod.

Hopefully the people who are WAY smarter than me can take the VU tools and get some of the good old maps going again in SP mode.

At 46 now, my modding days are well behind me.

I haven't played any BF game since BF2 and that was because I am an avid offline, play against AI bots, type player.

VU has introduced modding (and bots) into BF3 but I have not delved to deep into it.

I hope that the team at least adds in some AI modes like they did with the Star Wars games.

I'd gladly pay 59.99 if it had a mp mode that allowed me to play against AI bots
I'm in your boat.

Have you any recommendations for a modern version of the BF2 mod AIX2?

Also, have you tried the bot mods for BFBC2?

I feel bad for the paid offerings. Bitwarden does everything 90% of the population needs and does it for free.

The way ownership treated you was beyond reproach.
I do not think that means what you think it means... "reprehensible", maybe?

reproach verb
re·​proach | \ ri-ˈprōch \
reproached; reproaching; reproaches
Definition of reproach (Entry 2 of 2)
transitive verb

1: to express disappointment in or displeasure with (a person) for conduct that is blameworthy or in need of amendment

Hoping for BF2143. It would be nice if there was a bot mode so I could play offline or coop vs. bots with my fam. Not holding my breath tho.

Since the VU (venice unleashed) mod tools for BF3 were released, a modder has released a bot mode for BF3, here is the link if interested...

Well, this 40-something die hard Star Wars fan gives this news a resounding "meh".

I was entirely turned off playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint after having so much fun in Wildlands. Not really sure how I feel about this.

I still play through SW: Jedi Academy because the missions are fun and levels are pretty big.

With all the amazing SW planets, I don't see this making anyone truly happy who may want Coruscant vs Naboo etc.

I am worried they will try to make everyone happy and no one will be happy in the end

As a long time L4D and L4D2 fan...I was super excited to see this game. Then I saw all the DLC and monetization. Kinda bummed by it really.

Whoever buys it is a complete fool. Satellite TV, if not all broadcast TV, is pretty much DOA.

Wife and I have been very happy with Dish.

To buy online services plus a high speed internet service will be far more expensive than the under-$100 we pay for Dish now.

As it stands, we are fine with Cox's slowest speed as we don't stream and I don't do online games so for browsing and buying shit, we are fine.

Not sure why everyone thinks cord cutting is this panacea of home entertainment.

Wow, didn't realize there were so many gaming streaming services....https://www.techworm.net/2020/07/cloud-gaming-services.html

I am old enough to remember GameTap so I may have to dip my toes in the water with one of these since my pc is getting a little long in the tooth.
