Indeed.. so awesome. I still have friends that (sadly) haven't experienced it yet. One of my most favorite games ever!

Not that it matters, this game is dead now. It's not even close to the top 100 played on Steam, and there are currently about 250 people watching battlefront II streams on Twitch. It's nowhere near the first page.

Apparently it sold under 2 million units, which is pathetic for a AAA multiplayer game. Sure they may get some wales spending a few thousand on these microtransactions, but they won't come close to recouping their costs.

EA can go fuck themselves. I don't even care about Anthem, let alone if it got pushed back. Bioware is dead to me.

Top 100 on steam? This isn't on Steam... only Origin. Though I'm not sure if there's a stats page for Origin.

Still? There was no campaign in the first one...

The game already heavily supports PVE/co-op against bots, about 50/50 with PVP, and it's a lot of fun.

News Comments > Rainbow Six Siege Standard Edition Price Not Increasing
3. Re: Rainbow Six Siege Standard Edition Price Not Increasing Jan 27, 2018, 15:34 Rhett
 
Yeah, all of those editions are quite confusing.. I'm sure intentionally. Siege is already filled to the brim with cosmetics for sale.

And they also are giving new players/sales more "free crates" for the upcoming event, 3x as many as people who have played since launch and supported the game. I don't personally play or like Siege, but the whole game just seems scummy.

News Comments > Ghost Recon Wildlands Loot Crate Plans
12. Re: Ghost Recon Wildlands Loot Crate Plans Jan 24, 2018, 15:48 Rhett
 
There's just no place in this game for these... Yes, probably one of the lesser-intrusive ones, but just having them dangling there is bad enough. Plus you can't even earn them in-game, at all. There is no way to earn in-game credits (the paid "currency") either.

The main campaign has gotten no love outside of the DLCs, and the CMs kept saying "we have something big planned for the end of december for PVE!" which ended up being a very basic Predator event, with 99% of the cool stuff locked behind a $20 pay wall.

Community asked for a lot of minor features, only one of which is finally coming to fruition, without warning, which is Fallen Ghosts DLC in the main campaign. So I dunno.. pretty irritating devs.

Besides this and the new leveling changes though, I believe dungeon leveling is still totally viable. It's pretty quick too, last I recall.

Odd changes, but I guess when you steamroll all of the content you don't really learn how to play your class that well (for newer players anyway).

Looks akin to Escape from Tarkov, which is neat. A newer concept, mixing PVE and PVP (Tarkov has AI with loot mixed with players) along with the hardcore complexities of DayZ-esque one life, lose everything if you die-gameplay.

News Comments > Op Ed
5. Re: Op Ed Jan 22, 2018, 14:16 Rhett
 
Siege is pretty damn ridiculous too. You load it up, and it's very clear they fully intend you to throw money at them. Takes an absurd amount of grinding just to unlock one (old, even) DLC operator. They've continually attacked Terrorist Hunt and reduced payouts there by 80% since launch (due to people botting/AFKing for points).

I can't even stand to play it anymore, it's just loaded with cosmetic microtransactions that don't even fit the theme. And there's loot boxes now. FFS!

Meanwhile For Honor is actually much more reasonable in this regard, supposedly being from part of the Siege team. I don't get why there's a huge disparity between the two in regards to unlocks.

Yeah, it's a great game technically speaking.. it works very well. It's just that they make a lot of stupid decisions (somehow), trying to be "different" I guess, and they are also incredibly inept at communicating with the public, too...

I imagine Activision's greed didn't help either. They're probably stuck in the middle, taking all the flak.

Was almost considering buying it because co-op MGS (and 5 was amazing + the engine is as well), but... yeah, not if they're gonna prominently say "fuck all of you" like this.

Yeah... they seem to take the game seriously at least (have been in since alpha). Good. Now take the cheaters to russkie butt-pounding prison.

I just got Origin Access to play BF4, as I haven't really played them since BF3... it's also doing pretty well, surprisingly. REALLY glad they took out the fucking internet browser server list too. That killed the games for me. I hated that shit.

BF1 is also available through Origin Access apparently. I don't think it includes the DLC though. (BF4 comes with everything)

News Comments > PUBG China Cheating Backlash Heats Up
7. Re: PUBG China Cheating Backlash Heats Up Jan 11, 2018, 23:06 Rhett
 
VPNs will be banned in China next month supposedly. Not great for their country or anything, but... Yeah. PUBG is filled to the brim with a lot of toxic, racist, xenophobic people.

Chinese players have invaded every country's server, making most of the game modes highly unenjoyable (at least, third person I guess - I/my squad plays first person and we don't really see cheaters oddly enough) primarily due to the cheating. Apparently a good majority of them will TK/grief non-Chinese players that end up in their squads as well (you can queue to fill in a squad of randoms). It's pretty nuts.

Hell, it's just cool to see someone get noticed for a fan project by a major developer. I guess it's not as common now-a-days with so many unmoddable games.
