Would be awesome if it were Vietnam in all of its futile, gory, morally ambiguous glory.

Second this.

Thirded, particularly if you can broadcast music from vehicles again.

Tried the game out last night and was pleasantly surprised. So, is the full game an MMO and are you able to create a char or are you stuck playing these 4 only?

You'll get an occasional guest character but otherwise those four only. They were going for a "bro road trip" vibe on this one so the playable cast is smaller than past games.

I enjoyed it enough, certainly more than XIII. It's pretty rough in spots but considering the development hell it went through and the structural changes at Square during that period I'm not surprised. Might serve better as a foundation for future games. Mod support sounds interesting though....

Admittedly it is kinda cute. Likely an evolution strategy to get close to humans so it can lay eggs in our brains.

Not entirely true. Most first party games were rendered at 720p and then upscaled to 1080p. Still, they did all target 60 FPS and I wish all games did that.

Zelda is the exception running at a somewhat unstable 30 on both systems. The rest of the game is so good that it gets a pass for that in my book, but hopefully they stick to 60 for the future.

What it really needs is the ability to play a space game simulator on your hud whilst on long flights.

Would we be able to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on virtual virtual concept ships inside this virtual virtual space game simulator? Clearly this is something the fans demand.

NN didn't exist until 2015. Can someone explain to me why the world didn't fall apart in the 20 years preceding 2015 and it will happen now? I just don't get why the sky is falling by going back to pre-2015 models.

There was net neutrality pre-2015, the FCC was enforcing it with growing regularity. In 2014 their ability to do so under Title I was struck down, forcing the move to Title II.

"In 2008, the FCC ordered Comcast to stop slowing BitTorrent traffic on its network. Thompson argues that the Comcast case is insignificant because Comcast had stopped throttling BitTorrent by the time the FCC issued its order. But the real importance of the case was a federal-court ruling that the FCC didn’t have authority to regulate Comcast’s internet service, in part because it wasn't a Title II service."


The FCC approved net-neutrality rules in 2010, but was sued by Verizon. In 2014, the same federal court again ruled that the FCC would need to reclassify broadband providers as Title II services in order to enforce its rules."


Yes, all sorts of bad stuff might happen but why didn't the whole internet fall apart before 2015? Why didn't all of those negatives completely take over the business model of the internet like they are predicted to now (by going back to the pre-2015 model).

Those negatives were beginning to take over the internet before 2015.

"AT&T blocked Apple’s FaceTime and Google’s Hangouts video chat services for the preposterously silly reason that the apps were "preloaded" on each company’s phones instead of downloaded from an app store. Verizon and AT&T have each blocked the Google Wallet mobile payment system because they’re partners in the competing (and not very good) ISIS service. Comcast customers who stream video on their Xboxes using Microsoft’s services get charged against their data caps, but the Comcast service is tax-free."

Also keep in mind that the ISP landscape has changed drastically in the last 20 years. Consolidations and buyouts led to ISP's also holding significant media/information/other service assets. The search for profit being what it is incentivized them to prioritize networks for their own products, as a store might prioritize its own in house-brand on shelves. And without meaningful competition there would be no market forces to resist it.

and I don't remember everyone's head exploding on a daily basis on this board.

And I remember very vocal discussions, with multiple people being very worried that Tom Wheeler was going to do what Pai is doing now only to be pleasantly surprised he didn't. For example of this debate here is this rather long thread here.

CIG has officially jumped the shark.

CIG: "So what you're saying is there are space sharks that players can jump? And we can do concept art of these sharks and sell them as preorders for the pet shark system that we just decided to feature creep into the game?"

The moon is DLC. But we are having a preorder on buying parcels of land on the Moon.

Not a fan of forced tech obsolescence, but an 8 or 9 year old CPU (tech wise)? I can't fault developers for not including compatibility that far back, regardless of reasons.

They'll conveniently and automatically connect your credit card and buy you some loot boxes when the complex algorithms determine we are too hopeless to git gud. EA expects this to greatly increase the sensation of pride and accomplishment.

If you feel that a crazy fictional cult is offensive perhaps the real problem is that you live a life too relatable to a crazy fictional cult. I don't recall many people being up in arms about the dark brotherhood in Skyrim lampooning their lives.

I almost have to give him credit. I thought he was a one trick pony with milking people for virtual ships. But selling digital dirt? EA wishes it was this creative in revenue generation.

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.

I wonder if Bobby K. gets a headache from hearing about so much potential "recurring player investment" revenue being thrown away like that.

No cash loot boxes incentivized by grind? How will these players ever feel a sense of pride and accomplishment?
