Seems I'm the only one who cares more about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. than Lucasfilm/EA

Nah, but Stalker is dead, Star Wars isn't (yet) ;p

And GSC never getting to make STALKER 2 is a shame.

I wonder if that Petition is actually going to do something.. even if 1 million people signed it.

I highly doubt their contract has a clause that the license can be revoked if 1 million people sign a petition.

Haha, yeah. I'm fairly sure EA has a pretty ironclad contract with Disney. So while Disney can undoubtedly exert some influence over EA's Star Wars fiasco(s), I don't think they can just yank the license away.

Well, I mean, I'm sure they CAN, if they don't mind going to court and having to pay a shit ton of money in penalties.
It's the other way around with Disney having the ironclad contract with EA.

It would be funny if Disney acquired EA, then in two years they EA'd EA.

Don't give us hope!

Team NINJA tweets about plans to add PC support to the PC edition of Nioh: Complete Edition

I'd say that is pretty important

And only half a joke, considering the steam forums for that game....

No, but the contract definitely has some sort of clause that states if EA mistreats the Star Wars property that Disney has the right to revoke the contract. I think generating a ton of negative press and getting governments involved less than a month before a new Star Wars film is a clear breach of contract.

It likely revolves around reviews and sales, not some general "mistreating."
In any case, this petition has as much influence as the vast majority of petitions - absolutely none. It doesn't tell Disney anything it doesn't already know, and there's no chance it's actionable.

Pretty much, but Disney has extreme interest right now in not damaging their big brand right before the pivotal 2nd movie releases. 2nd movies are always the deciding factor for a series of movies and their future sucess.... if fans don't get on-board with the new vision then Disney is hurting hard. And EA endangering by linking Disney to illegal gambling is not what Disney signed up for. ^^

If it's good mouse support, I will reconsider buying it.

Considering this game developer fucked up the simplest thing (Steam controller support...) I doubt they will fare better with kb/mouse....

Ubi's DRM decision is prolly looking pretty good to them.

And like Denuvo, once tools exist to un protect the thing, it will be broken forever.

Yeh but there is a reason ADQG makes millions and this doesn't... a charity event that's horrid-boring to watch is pointless, no incentives nothing new or exciting, I could watch paint dry and have a better experience (as watcher)

So why would I make this boring event more known among my friends? Watch and donate during SGDQ or AGDQ and do something actually good for gaming and charity

Well that PG news is great news for lawyers.

More like car insurances, because that's the one and only accident they'll pay for you, from then on you are flagged and are billed like a newbie driver, aka 500% more ;p

The Forbes article overlooks that the current CEO is the reason this shit started, the RMT shemes (Lootboxes, Fifa Ultimate Team functions from 2009 !!! and how it is now part of every EA property) are literally his invention. So this is really just showing that a CEO with a 1 trick pony can be great for your stocks, until that 1 trick pony is dead. And EA got no new IP anywhere. To even call this outfit a Publisher is a joke. They don't fund new games, they only recycle old ones.

Fuck Samsung.

Yes, you will.. edge light is a problem of all LED solutions aside from OLED But with OLED you obviously get far bigger and far more serious image quality problems, and let's not even get started on the whole 8bit problem

Loot boxes are the natural progression of you people accepting mmo's and steam, as soon as people bought a server locked game it was over. The entire mission of the game industry was to take software control away from customers. That has been going on since the days of Ultima online, everquest and wow.
Once again, it's you peoples fault because supper@7 is purrrfect. omfg ffs

Not just that he is purrfect, by saying that he basically admitted he hasn't played a single AAA game the past decade legally*.

Apologies if posted previously, but I just finished watching a great video on this subject and EA's role in developing the practice and thought I'd share it.


Nice video but as was already said, I guess we'll see what really comes from it. Maybe I should write a letter to my local politician about it... mhhh...

That "droid" is the best news this game has to offer by far
A far cheaper solution than spending money on micro transactions.

You'd be surprised how much electro servos cost

I'm sure you could make one out of Lego Mindstorms. $350 is still cheaper than the $2500 or so all the MTs for SWBF2 cost.

Plus you'd have a Lego Mindstorm, which is awesome.

Indeed Though honestly, seems to me writing an auto-hotkey script would be easier...

Hmm, doesn't SWBF have software to prevent stuff like that from running?

IF the bloke with his droid key-presser doesn't get banned then neither will you for writing a script doing the same thing. Sure you might not wanna move the mouse wildly since mouse input is most definitely sanitized and scanned, but KB input? Just move fowards and backwards and shoot every once in a while, bind those 3 functions to F1 F2 and F3 and set script to trigger those in random time and you got the same thing with no droid.
