Am I the only one who found Battlefront two single player fun AF

Honestly, I'm quite enjoying it. It does show it's limitations in that you can tell it's a MP game with an SP mode tacked on, but being a SW nerd and seeing what happened right after EP6 was too good to pass up. There's some questions answered about Force Awakens and things that tie it closer to the original series.

I'm sure Microsoft will defund this soon anyway like they kill most of their non-Forza/Gears exclusives.

What? What the fuck does Microsoft have to do with this game? Frontier have been self-publishing for quite a while now.

Wow, guys.

One dude thinks this is an open world exploration game, even though the news article states literally in the first sentence "the management simulation in the works at Frontier Developments".
The next dude fantasizes about Microshit pulling funding?

What the actual fuck? Did I miss something crucial today? Is today World Fantasy Day where everyone gets to spout some completely random drivel pretending it's a fact?

The real craziness is that CJ Parker is the most sane guy in the room!

It's a theme park simulator. Frontier made Planet Coaster, Zoo Tycoon, so think those.

This is not a Microsoft game. It's being published by Frontier themselves, as they've done with their last several titles.

It does have James Cameron behind it. And he did make the last successful one, so maybe that'll do the trick. If it doesn't, nothing will.

I do however find it shady as fuck to use someone else's shit in a way you know they don't appreciate or approve of. If you are doing that it's impossible to take anything you are saying/doing seriously or even to make it worth reading/looking at.

That's a feature, not a bug. If you can stick it to a liebral while creating your meme, more's the better.

"liebral" fresh off the fox news forums are we?

Wish games would make the teleport movement in VR an option for those of us with stomachs iron enough to handle normal movement. I was all excited to get Obduction VR, until I started playing. I actually prefer the normal version because of having to blink forward everywhere in VR.

VR is incredibly immersive until you start using the touch controller to throw your feet forward...

I thought Obduction added locomotion movement in a patch.

I really enjoyed the series. Watched both seasons a couple times now, and can't wait for the next.

Actually in the first episode after everyone gets trapped, their real identities are also revealed. So no 70 yr old perv's playing girl avatars.

Agreed. I don't "get it", but clearly a lot of other people are enjoying it.

Yup. It's like Minecraft. My kids keep trying to get me into it but I just watch them and think, "how is this fun?"

You'll never feel so old as when you watch a half dozen tweens play Minecraft on a LAN.

Still looks boring as hell. And whoever was playing those chars is either stupid or just doesn't know how to play. It was so irritating watching that.


Maybe you're not the target audience? My 10 year old loved it.

Well, goody two shoes for your 10 year old. And this just reaffirms my first comment. Boring!!!

Both my kids still play the first one. The game simply wasn't made for you. It was made for children. Just like the movies.

It's strange to think that ActiBlizz freely give away money to steam with the yearly CoD releases on PC when they now have a perfectly good store/launcher of their own. I think that's it's probably due to nobody playing CoD on PC anymore, and it would just be a blight on battle.net's launcher.

I suspect that's it exactly. The marketshare for CoD on PC is fairly insignificant compared to console.

When I was in college we had an executive from EA give a seminar. This was way back when they just stopped publishing their sports titles on PC (waaaaaaaaaaaay back). Someone asked him why and he said that their sports games on PC weren't even breaking even. All of the money they took in was from consoles.

I remember reading an article a few years back, the game was Black Ops 3 and they only looked at physical sales, but the PC marketshare was 1% of the total sales. Granted steam wasn't included, but neither were the Xbox and PS online stores either.

EDIT: Here it is. http://www.ubergizmo.com/2015/11/91-percent-sales-black-ops-3-console/

Definitely no (single player) demo and/or no free (multiplayer) trial = no buy

You must not buy many games. Both these are becoming a rarity. Especially single player demos.

It depends on the game and storefront. As the other dude whom I referred to indirectly pointed out, most storefronts except Blizztard's fucking Shittynet, of course, have a refund policy so you can effectively demo the game (the Prey guys from Arkane even outright suggested using Steam refunds for a 2 hour demo).

Origin has some super-generous demos and trials of many of their games and a super-generous refund policy (demos/trials being a rarity is a myth of elitist Steam clowns who only use Steam exclusively but as I said even there you can get a 2 hour demo via the refund "workaround").

Only greedy fucking Blizztard doesn't have any of that, of course. That is why a free demo or trial is absolutely mandatory for this casual shit game.
Well, either that, or maybe they could catch up with the year of the lord 2017 and update their Shittynet client to include basic customer features like refunds. Just an idea.

Speaking of that, Prey is a good game. My Bioshock nostalgia feelers were strong that Sunday morning and I went and paid the full price for it (something I try to avoid). And I'm glad I did, been enjoying the hell out of it.

I loved it, but everyone is right. Very specific tastes required. For an adventure game it was pretty good and much better than the barely-interactive movies Telltale is doing these days.

Lip synching was pretty bad though. I really hope they work on that for the sequel.

Oddly enough my 12 yr old son thought it was a fantastic game. Never saw that coming.

And not a gaggle of liberal pussies.

Funny, I don't want to watch a show that reminds me of a bunch of under educated, selfish conservative pricks.

Here's the thing. I AM a liberal pussy. That's partly why I loved Trek. But in DS9 they were getting roasted by the Dominion at every turn, they needed to start doing nasty war things to win. They needed Section 31, but decided to take them down instead.

Liberal pussies like me don't win wars against ruthless enemies.
