If they actually release a full game this time I'll be all over it. If they churn out another less then half a game again, well, FU EA... why oh why did such a shitty company get such a great IP.
Because 95% of people, including many around here, will preorder games based on flashy, fancy trailers alone. That's why. Everyone who keeps preordering this trite AAA garbage from EA (or Ubi or Actiblizz or Squeenix etc.) like SWBF or MEA only have themselves to blame for the results. Action, reaction. Gamers demand dumbed down shitty games, gamers get dumbed down shitty games. Simple as that.
This is why I no longer pre-order games for any reason. I don't care what pre-order incentives they offer. If the game is shit, the pre-order incentives don't mean anything anyways.
Funny how people, on the flip side, will also completely bash a game based on a cinematic trailer.
"We want single player!"
You got it.
"We still hate you! We want better space battles!"
You got it.
"Pieces of crap! We want more playable heroes!"
Seriously. Ya a lot of these things should have been addressed the first time around, but it seems like they are trying. I think people remember the original battlegrounds with some serious rose colored glasses.
