Carlin nailed it: Garbage in, Garbage Out.

Maybe we should stop looking at the politicians and getting angry at the pitiful choices, and instead look at who is responsible for putting these clowns into power...THE PEOPLE. The people are ignorant, uneducated, and largely stupid (enough to vote in a immoral con-artist). Until the US fixes the root cause, enjoy Donald Trump and much worse in the future. This is bound to get worse before it gets better from that perspective.

Hilary is a joke too, so don't get me wrong. It'd be just as bad if she had been elected. Moral of the story, you're fucked either way. At least if you stay home and choke the chicken you actually have something to show for it afterwards.

Microsoft, if you're serious about committing yourself to PC gaming, then get the fuck out of the way, it does better without you.

Second Battlefield game that I don't play/own on Day 1 (next to Hardline).

The beta was pretty fun, but the balance seemed way off (are higher level players still hugely advantaged with kit selection?). It's also hard to justify paying $60+ (and DLC) for essentially re-skinned games year after year.

Maybe once this hits the $30 range, which knowing EA's track record with Battlefront and Hardline, will probably be the case by Christmas.

This seems a lot more than just a reskinned game.

Because the graphics are nicer?

Bad Company 2 had better destruction. No evolution or any kind of advancement on that front aside from 'dynamic weather' (which they've been speaking about since BF3). The weapon/vehicle balancing is way off. Conquest is largely rendered useless based on the game play decisions they decided to go with (at least in beta). Nothing has really been done to further promote squad play.

The only redeeming factor to the game aside from fresh content, is the fact the network optimization isn't complete garbage like it normally is for the first 6 months of any DICE multiplayer game.

I'm sure it'll be a fun title for years to come, but after spending $60+ on every Battlefield game I can ever remember, this one feels largely the same with some 'ohh, that's shiny!' moments.

Reskinned was probably a harsh characterization since DICE actually tried with this title, I just don't see it as a full-priced purchase. My loss I guess.

As good as this game is (I've put a lot of time in it and largely enjoyed it), it's again nothing more than a console port.

The multiplayer should be the most obvious example of this, but the fact that MP profiles are not saved online (they're saved locally and can be corrupted...which happens more than it should on PC) and the fact that the server's are client-hosted and the lag is atrocious at times in multiplayer speaks volumes.

A really solid game that could have been a real gem had ID actually developed it properly for PC, but they didn't. Don't think anyone is surprised at this point though, this has become the norm.

Microsoft continuously proves how utter useless they are as a company. It's hard to imagine a company that treats their customers more poorly, but then I'm reminded that companies like Apple exist.

The hitboxes in this game make launch day BF4 look like CS:GO LAN. It's hilarious that 1) TF2 exists for free and is superior in every way and 2) people will pay almost AAA price for a busted, half-baked, 10 years too late title.

But hey, it's Blizzard, so I guess the masses of idiots will just throw money at them.

All this for an overhyped, console shooter?

Really? Have PC players even played Bungie games? They're so overrated it's not even funny.

Halo is good....for a console game. Qualifying it like that doesn't do it any favors either.

I've never understood why cheaters weren't permabanned always on the first offense. The EULA, decency, and common sense clearly state that cheating in a multiplayer game is scum of the earth type of behavior.

Unless you step on these people's throats in a figurative sense, what deterrent exists to prevent these assfucks from continuing to cheat? Ban their account, their IP, their MAC-Addresses and any other identifiable means of preventing them from ruining the gameplay of legitimate players.

Pay $50 for a game, cheat, be permanently banned. Either go waste another $50, or fuck off. It shouldn't be that hard.

14 MILLION??? Jesus fucking Christ. I had no idea there were so many idiots out there. That's around $500M gross. And it will dissuade them from making a deeper game with more bells and whistles. "People loved Battlefront! Let's streamline it further! And they didn't even miss single player!"

Yeah, because every voice on the internet all shouted with a coherent voice: "This game is perfect, don't change anything"


  • hashtageyeroll

    And to the guy saying: "I never touch X games, I forgot they change studios every other game, scoff". First off, EA has had rights to the Battlefront for exactly one game. Before that Battlefront was published by a little known star wars developer called LucasArts. I know doing your homework is hard, but it's prerequisite to not looking like a jackass in public when you run your mouth.

    LOL, yeah because Visceral is going to do a better job? Gimme a break. Being a contrarian is cute, until you make yourself look like a jackass.

    Always so many negative comments in every thread around here lol :/

    We're looking forward to checking it out. No more easy mode lock on weapons, no IRNV, UCAV, etc., could be a really nice change of pace.

    Wait, so this game will be filled with gimmicks in order to get the Battlefield feel into a WW1 alternate reality and you don't think they'll have uber-cheese/cheap gimmicks like the UCAV and similar absurdities? You are in for a rude surprise friend.

    Hyped. Kind of disappointing that they went with two protagonists instead of just Emily when she's clearly the focus. Most likely a marketing decision, as Bethesda probably didn't think a game with only a female lead would sell.

    I'd hate to think this would be the case, but you're probably right.

    One of my favorite games of all time, Perfect Dark, has a female lead and I couldn't care what gender she was, she's just a bad ass character regardless. It's sad that people still can't get past that stuff.

    Can't wait for this one! Dishonored is maybe the biggest sleeper shooter I've played in a long time, and all around one of the best single player shooter experiences I've ever played. Great gameplay, great levels, excellent art style and a coherent story, lets hope 2 is just as good!

    somewhat off-topic, but I have recently gotten into the first Dark Souls game after a great deal of trouble with it for YEARS. I get it. It's probably a top 10 game all-time. Utterly brilliant.

    I was absolutely dreading the first time I would get invaded by another player because forced PVP ain't really my bag, but HOLY SHIT did I crush that MF'er. He was NOT expecting a 2-handed Zwei +5 to rain blows upon him again and again. I cackled so loud I woke up my son from across the house.

    Cheaters aside, the PVP experience in Dark Souls is a lot of fun. I remember being invaded by TWO players in of of the belltower rooftops and I managed to dodge around enough and killed both of them, felt incredible in that game.

    But yeah, cheaters like this, especially those who compromise innocent bystanders, deserve to be hung and quartered.

    QFT.

    There was this massive 350 pound bleach-blonde teacher at my high-school who was an obvious gold-digger. She had the vocabulary of a fifth grader and was our schools 'religion' teacher. She had a massive ego and sense of arrogance despite being a poorly-educated oaf. Worst of all, she couldn't go more than 5 seconds without praising how awesome her overpriced, convertible mustang was that was she was handed by her testicle-less 'husband'.

    This article makes all too much sense.

    I've been in all the closed alphas for this game...I usually end up going back to Quake Live or UT4 after a little bit.

    It's not terrible MP, it's just a lot of console feel and gimmicky stuff, doesn't feel like a true competitive arena shooter.
