Wait, you guys aren't aware of the Star Wars female story arc? That Padme's death "from a broken heart" started a chain reaction in the force that will result in the elimination of all males in the Galaxy by Episode IV: Death by Snu-Snu?


...huh

I just thought you meant making use of the airlock door in general. Didn't realize you meant use it seamlessly. But I'm definitely glad there's no animations for getting in and out of the Nomad. Again, the repetition of that makes it better to just skip animating it.

No comment on the rest. Too verbose a minefield.

This is one of my problems with the entire Mass Effect series; would it have really killed them to have the door of the hero ship be like every other door in the level, where you, gasp, open it, and then walk in? Have characters actually climb in and out of the hero ground vehicle?

Things the player has to do repetitively get shortcuted (new word?). Everyone bitched about the elevators in ME 1, and you DID walk through the ship airlock in that one too.

Also people who gripe about Star Wars hurting the sci-fi genre, well.. Star Wars is first and foremost fantasy, not science fiction. The setting is more like asking, 'What would happen if the Forgotten Realms developed technology and got around to making space ships?'. You can call it a space opera, sure.. but it kind of stands off to the side from true sci-fi works.

No one watching / reading those thinks how great it will be when we have repulsor lifts so we can start having aircraft carriers hovering over cities.

Prove otherwise to what? As I said, there's big budget games trying to look as good as possible. That's what it takes to accomplish that, a large budget (or great art direction, which can be pulled off with a smaller budget). Battlefront being one, and I find it's also a fun shooter. I never said it always takes a lot of money to make a good game.

Minecraft was an indie game that hit it big. That's great. Not my cup of tea though.

I've poured vast hours into Sins of a Solar Empire, probably my favorite indie of recent years.

There's other arguments to be made if we're talking strictly Star Wars, and I agree there. That setting is ripe for a good RTS and RPG game to spawn out of. There's room for good shooters too, though.

What I want is Republic Commando II.

There's reasons I post somewhat infrequently here. I do read nearly every thread, however. I don't have a problem with modern games.

Guess I'm easily amused.

The unfortunate truth of modern gaming is it takes a shit-ton more resources to make a competitive looking (and sounding game), so the return needs to be high as well. Thus these days you have your Michael Bay games, and you have your art-house indie games, etc. There's plenty to choose from out there. I don't automatically shit over the Michael Bay games, however. There can still be fun to be had in them, for some of us at least.

News Comments > KOTOR Reboot & New BioWare IP Rumors
20. Re: Out of the Blue Apr 11, 2017, 18:43 Drayth
 
I can't see them doing a reboot. The MMO's lore is directly tied to the original two games, and there's no sign of that shutting down anytime soon. They're not going to have a new game out that ret-con's a currently running MMO.

Also, nice chunks of the existing Old Republic lore have made it into canon status by showing up in the various animated series, and even Rogue 1.

If there really is a new Old Republic game on the way it's only level of reboot will be distancing itself from the original stories is my guess.

It's worth noting that any new Star Wars games EA publishes are 100% canon... so if this DOES happen...

Nice. Just long enough after the release of the 1080ti that the hardcore types would have bought, to grab them again with the next great thing.

I'll have to check ebay for a cheapo 1080ti now, though here in AU, I doubt they're going to be terribly cheap anyway.

Well you could use the GTX1080ti as a PhysX card...

NetHeads post was fine, it just contained the original *REMOVED* post and was a casualty of war, friendly fire and all that.

NetHead, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Ah, ok. Derp... makes sense

It's a little unsettling that I'm seeing a perfectly valid critique of the comment section in quotes, yet the actual post is removed. Was there something else to NetHead's post that warranted removal?

Most of CJ's posts are ludicrous but we get to enjoy each and every one of them.

I'll probably get a vive at some point. This gives me faith RE7 will get PC VR support eventually. Still haven't caved on getting a PS4. Don't know if I will. All they had to do is put a 4K Blu Ray player on it, but nooOOOOOooo...

That's probably partially to blame, also wasn't there a COD/BLOPS about the same time?

Yes. The week before was Battlefield One, and the week after (or same week?) was CoD. The release timing for this game was terrible.

Anyways, at least this way I can try out the highly regarded SP campaign.
