where video game violence panic failed, this is going to bring in the government meddling and regulation.

I wouldn't hold my breath for that, but it would be nice to have the government do something.

Also:

This time they didn't get away cause they messed with a franchise that go beyond the game bounduaries: Star Wars.

If it was any other game in the EA kill pool nothing of this magnitude would have surfaced, this fast.

I just don't understand how you can just lie through your teeth like that? I'd feel like a dirty whore that no amount of hot showers would ever make clean again. They didn't really understand? Yeah, sure. They pulled it? Yeah after Bob Iger told them to. Lies and damn lies. Why people giving these motherfuckers money is beyond me.

In the end it isn't that difficult to believe.
The people who made the noise, the one that raised all this problem for EA are a mere % of the main market.
Granted this time WE made a big splash, but how much longer will it last?

Give the fuckers 2-3 months and they will be back with their shit.

Problem also lies with the majority of players: I've seen an awful lot of people from all ages fork the 60+ price tag, play for a week or two and then drop the game.

Finally, W3 locked content behind a season pass, that's the point. There's no maps, heroes, weapons etc that are hidden behind a paywall with SWBFII.

You also seem to forget that CDPR did like SIXTEEN free DLCs for the Witcher 3. With weapons, skins etc. There was no content locked behind a season pass. There was no weapon in Witcher 3 that you could look at it in a menu, but then know you'd have to pay to get it. The two expansions they released were actual expansions, not piecemeal shit that completed the original game.

And all of that is ignoring that the Witcher 3 was already probably the largest RPG released for the price of $60.

So yeah, how dare they make fun at EA's expense when EA finds itself in a shitstorm of its own making.

Seriously, go pick on someone else. Trying to equate CDPR to EA is the most ludicrous argument imaginable.


Yes, EA is going to want to make money to earn back any future content they do, which is understandable, but they could do so in a far better manner than trying to squeeze every frigging dime out of their customers with their lootbox crap.

Nothing of what EA does is in any way, shape or form relatable to what CDPR does.

Do not engage the Slick ...

Expansions have been part of pc gaming since forever, it's the microtransactions I can do without, but as long as they aren't pay to win I could care less.

Do not egange the Slick, he will simply go on and on and on.

I wonder how long it will stay like this before they shuffle it up.
Or it's trying to cope with the tanking of the pre-orders?

Creston wrote on Oct 30, 2017, 11:39:
Yeah, once I read 5-7 hours, I was like "Oh." 5-7 hours in dev speak is typically about 4-5 hours in reality, and then likely at least an hour of that is cutscenes.

10 bucks seems about right, but I think it'll take a while before it gets there, since they're doing all the content packs for free, as opposed to SWBF1 where they were paid (and almost pure profit), so they had incentive to lower the price asap to get more potential content pack customers.

I guess the time factor will be determined by how "well" the lootboxes scam in game will earn?

Keep this console port trash off the PC.

You need to shut the fuck up. Enough with all of your bullshit.

I knew your worthless ass couldn't resit coming in here and bashing the game. Your so predictable. If you dont like, then go find another forum to hang out in, because your worthless ass is not welcome here.

Hurts much?

Still the original and best, although I prefered Terror from the Deep.
Same, in terms of mechanics, because of the melee weapons tweaks and additions. Other than that they are essentially identical. Kinda a rip off heh.

In terms of aliens, the ufo defense one had the most iconic aliens. Crysalids!
The only thing I didn't like from Terror From The Deep is the graphics of the marines

Because Capcom has no idea what a PC is, what it does, or how to program for it.

and that is funny enough, especially since they have to code the game on PC for the consoles ...

Capcom, we have no clue what we are doing.

I hope that this is for console as well. The guy in the video mentions PC but not PS4/Xbone. I tend to play on PS4 mostly these days.

Mate, consoles do not reach that frame rate.

Anyone still playing this? Is it getting any better? I mean despite the tiny plot size and always online requirement.

The game is still full of glitches and issues that were addressed in previous patch, but actually still broken.
I advice you to wait ... again

I'm completely and utterly outraged that I am being forced to be connected to the internet to constantly view and post on these forums. I am a loyal, dedicated fan and as such deserve to have things my way and get to choose whether or not I want to be online for these forums. This isn't communist China, you shouldn't be allowed to force us fans into something we don't want to do. If I want to be on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere that has no internet, I should still be able to post on these forums and view topics.


If my demands are not met within the next 2 day, I'm going to pirate these forums. I'm going to use the internet to find a way to use these forums without the internet. Then who will have the last laugh? Me! That's who. The loyal fan(s) which you're rolling over by this requirement! Unbelievable!

They don't give a fuck about loyal fans.
Brainless masses that play SimWhatEver on FaceBook, always trumps the loyal fans.
EA goal is not making good games, is making a game that will sell milions, period.
THey are trying to make a second The Sims.

I may have to cave and get this after watching some let's plays. I'm a sucker for building games and even with its flaws it looks better than anything I've seen in years.

Does anyone know the latest on how to block Origin from scanning your system and phoning home? I've never installed Origin before. My own googling gave some suggestions, but many were over a year old and perhaps outdated.

you have to use http://www.sandboxie.com/

Heaven knows Acti-Blizzard don't have the kind of resources Valve was able to muster in making Portal 2 function across platforms...

Most console games don't cross-play with PC because they're designed with the 360 in mind, and Microsoft doesn't let anyone in and out of their walled garden (without paying for the privilege, and that's one way only). No such restriction on the PS3.

If anything, this might be a case where PC-console cross-platform play got scuttled from the PC end. After all, Blizzard doesn't want anything getting into their precious...

Also do not forget that they cannot balance out the game with a pad on console and the game on a pc with keyboard, mouse, macro and all the rest.
There will be a gazilion people crying cause the pc guys do better and all.
