For $60 more you can just get a Nexus 7 with 1080p screen and real google OS support.

I have FF6 on PS1 Disc and it looks way better than that on a CRT television than this PC release.

Doubt it.

Plot summary scrolling text:

All is rosy in the Galaxy as Peace Reigns for all the years, but the Imperial Remnant (Space version of U.S. Oligarchs In Hiding™), while their rule has diminished, they remain dogmatic and fanatical as they consolidate their remaining power in small systems of the outer rim. While the New Republic continues to demilitarize, the Imperial Remnant looks for an opportunity to strike yet again. The cold war is about to get hot! Members of the New Republic, including Ackbar and Leia form a Resistance, believing it is too dangerous not to keep a watchful on eye on the increasingly aggressive Imperials.

While the New Republic becomes more complacent, freedoms are a fragile thing from the evil of Tyrannies. The Imperial Remnant has gathered their forces at so and so place led by a mysterious dark force. The Resistance fears something is up, but an New Force Awakens and an Old New Hope Begins.

guessing the story is (super) roughly this:
- Imperials make their first incursions and stuffs
- General Solo gets attacked in the Falcon
- An Imperial Defects, like Biggs, Katarn, etc. and is actually force sensitive (like katarn) and is afraid of the evil dark jedi dude leading the Remnants to exterminate more force sensitives yo
- We meet the Jaina Solo-like character, she learns that the Force is real! Leia says she has neglected her training and can not teach her fully, she must go on a journey/adventure to find Leia's brother, and Jaina character's Uncle Luke. Luke will teach Jaina and Defected Imperial in the ways of the forces to defeat evils!

It would be cool if there would be a Star Trek movie that is just like a fleshed out story from Next Generation or Deep Space 9. Perhaps something more nuanced, mundane, diplomacy, less action - but with an engaging allegory. Basically a Star Trek Drama.

This could easily happen to all the new Star Wars movies too though, even though SW generally had grand space battles and what not. I'm not letting the hype get to me for Force Awakens, since it could turn out 'average.' And with all the stuff they are coming out with, a Han Solo Trilogy (where it could turn into Han Solo Fast and Parsecs 3), or that Rogue movie about stealing Death Star plans, SW too might get pretty saturated quick. Even some of the new SW books for "New Alt EU" are pretty PooDoo.

I loved that episode 24 too, but making an entire game out of it, I don't know. The series is about way more than that, plus isn't this F2P? If it is no thanks.

Also still waiting for GiTS: SAC to appear on proper bluray and not imports. Kimchidvd is still out of stack damnit!

I wonder if this will be a Kickstarter or not.

SHODAN survived by taking over the body of Rebecca Siddons, which is creepy enough. SOLDIER G65434-2, the player character, should also be alive.

I pitched in enough for a small add-on. Thought about getting the the bluray set (85), but gotta save the pocket book for the holidays. I asked them if they are releasing a regular edition of the dvd/bluray set, and they said Yes though, which is cool.

The players base for battlefront over the last month has fallen about 150K over all three platforms. Its losing players faster than Titanfall did. That was my point, the number don't lie and the player base has spoken by not even showing up or by simply leaving.

Higher than most games I guess. Compare that to underperforming, non AAA games, like MWO which fluctuates between 1,000-2,000 (lower population than Medieval 2 Total War, a Single player 9-year old game.

Compared to other top FPS MP games specifically as of 12/11:

BF4 PC - 20,492
Battlefront PC - 11,565
CS:GO - 705,268

I don't plat a lot of FPS, so I don't know what other 'go to' FPS games there are to play.

The broken matchmaking system has been broken for almost 2 weeks now, sine Jakku came out for pre-orderers, and it's really pissing me and the entire community off. It sucks there's no accountability so they're just fixing it at their leisure when the GAME IS BROKEN RIGHT NOW!

That would have been easily fixed if the game had dedicated servers made by player admins and sites, then you can choose any server and drop in/drop out. I have a love/hate relationship with the so called "matchmaker" used in this day and age for MP games.

Well at least LucasArts did give a damn once in the 90s or Bioware with the SW RPG experiment. Those days are over.

Sigh. Quite frankly if you read between the lines and listen to the source material, the AI will be a very simple scripted aspect to add missions like escort, seek & destroy, recon, and smaller AI unit action. A couple of months ago they added a fair new player tutorial which was a step in the right direction.

So what's the cost on that, the price of a triple A better game like MW2? It's a pipedream.

Primalchrome wrote on Dec 11, 2015, 11:24:
What the devil are you babbling about? Every mech in the game is from the Battletech IP. As a matter of fact it is the first game to bring back the Unseen (Marauder, Warhammer, Archer, etc...).

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, then I'll explain if you haven't played much classic BattleTech or custom modes in previous games. Those Mechs you mentioned? You can create similar builds across most of them, in fact people do and it makes everything rather redundant/boring. They increase the engine size to absurd amounts, to ensure their Mech is the same Nascar speed as everything else, mount 'best' min/max builds, etc.

BattleTech is at it's finest and richest, with far more variety and differences between Mechs, with stricter customization rules to maximize the inherent pro/cons and challenge of specific builds as they were made in the lore and boardgame. The server (random matchmaker) does not allow the player to play anything else but 'customization arms race' to turn their thing that looks like something from BattleTech, into a complete Solaris-esque bastardization of it. It does not let the players setup the rules beforehand. You are forced to do so if you want to kill and grind out your crap faster; the game is built for grind in that way (with underlying, core mechanical balance issues still unchanged to this very day). A stock Marauder, for instance, should be able to run just fine technically if this MWO game had better balance/mechanics for the bare-bones heat/targeting system balancing they have in place and a specific way for a player to use it in a non-custom mode.

Anyways, it LOOKS like a Marauder, but the other 'Mech you're facing installed similar stuff as you reducing the uniqueness inherent to actual BattleTech. Like-wise its no longer a Marauder if you slap on 3 AC'5s or all medium lasers. Its a facsimile and you're able to simply change out the flaws of a Mech with little consequence. This is also an issue for free players that really don't want to buy anything, they have to grind out their Mech while hoping they can make enough c-bills to not get eviscerated by custom builds (as such they'll have to use a "trial" mech, also with an easier non-battletech build).

Previous games had multiple modes, governed by players themselves to stay either within the confines of more Classic BattleTech or go with more wild Non-Battletech type things. Basically everything has been watered down for grind and an overall more Arcade experience. The specific Mechs that look the same as they are in BattleTech are purely for Nostalgia and Virtual PokeMech collecting.

What, her lightsaber? The first time they hinted that Han/Leia had a daughter, I already knew she was supposed to be a nod to Jaina Solo. It was the first thing I guessed. So of course, she's going to learn the ways of the force and become a Jedi, likely seeking out her Uncle Jedi Master Luke in the process.

That rumor was just that, a rumor. PGI in no way has capability or money with this game to make an SP equivalent of the high-quality of MW2/3/4. I honestly don't see this game lasting a couple more years, MW is way too niche to be a f2p (pop is low). I would give this game more than a mixed review if it had more actual content - instead of the bare-bones random matchmaker, playing against random people, against random Uber (Non-Battletech) Mechs, that doesn't let you choose map, play-style, era, etc.
