oh no, yucky girls are getting in our clubhouse and ruining star wars for white dudes, who star wars is supposed to be for!

i saw TLJ opening night and was kind of indifferent but the caterwauling it's provoked in "real star wars fans" has been highly entertaining.

I agree, it's especially heart warming seeing all these "fans" on youtube making millions of "The Last Jedi sucked" video blogs. So much for the fake news story that all the negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes are from Russian bots. The only thing that really maters is how much money it makes and from the looks of things it's only going to fall short by one billion from The Force Awakens.

Star Wars
What a sloppy miss cast PC mess...has a SW movie ever failed so badly in making you feel like you travelled the galaxies.
Bloated side quests just jump around there is no feeling of distance travelled. The main quest is just plain stalled. blah

The Force Awakens dazzled people with Star Warsish imagery and memberberries, The Last Jedi just wants to burn everything down to the ground, everything had to be a "gotcha" moment. Maybe for the next one JJ can pull the old "it was just a dream" Jedi mind trick.

It doesn't bode well for their Solo movie, if that turns out to be another bad Star Wars movie I don't think they'll be selling many tickets to their theme park attractions. Just think of the money Disney has riding on this franchise, from the merchandise to the theme park. You would think they could have afforded to have a focus group of select Star Wars fans dissect their plans. Sounds like their focus group consisted of a bunch of women who didn't have a clue about Star Wars.

Didn't they add some super weapons with the DLC, I guess that could be considered pay to win if you don't get the DLC. But that's nothing new with online shooters.

Probably just a massive blank spot between when she went into the coma and waking up, or one ongoing nightmare. Medically induced comas aside I wouldn't want to exist in a vegetative state for years on end.

I actually enjoyed that hour.... needs tons of polish and optimization, but the base is there, and this 1 hour had more in 1 hour than Elite Dangerous has as entire gameplay.

uh the actual space combat doesn't look even half as good as Elite Dangerous.

The art assets they've made for Star Citizen are top shelf but when actual gameplay starts it looks pretty poorly implemented. I think they've spent too much time creating switches for cockptis that turn lights on and off and not enough on the actual ship to ship combat gameplay mechanics. The first person combat looked like they were using a copy and paste job from crysis.

I did enjoy the Terminator joke and the Roger Wilco cameo.

The movie is PG 13, so not for little kids. Also it's full of raw emotion and violence. It's probably the most intense Star Wars movie ever made. I thought it was excellent, definitely good enough to overcome a few flaws.
If you like this one then you'll definitely like the next one. Quentin Tarantino just signed on as director.

While that actually might be a good match, JJ Abrams is directing the next Star Wars movie. Quentin would like to do a Star Trek movie.

Sorry for the lack of sarcasm tags

Don't you just hate it when you go to argue something wrong with a Star Wars movie and people throw up the hand and say "Star Wars is for little kids".

Of course the whole thing is fantasy but I think people are a little more sophisticated in terms of seeing things that are completely beyond the realm of acceptable fantasy tolerances so as to take you out of the immersion of the universe. There are certain rules, even unwritten rules that you just shouldn't break.

Superman flying through the void of deep space, acceptable. Mary Poppins flying through deep space, not so much.

You guys need to understand that Star Wars is for little children, it's not for adults and never has been.

/looks at run time

I'd like to see the six year old kid after spending 2:32 min in a theater, and even better would be the parent that actually thought that would be just fine along with the fried nerves of everyone around them.

As for the reviews, something seems fishy on IMDB when you click on the user reviews you can't find a single 10 yet it's running and 8.1 score.

I can't blame "professional" review critics for fawning over Disney's money machine that they're desperate to prop up, given the recent acquisitions it could mean and end of your carrier if you don't play along nice with the Mouse Empire.

Now it's Russia hacked our election? lol

Before you go all global thermal nuclear war because crooked corrupt Hillary lost, I need to add some creature comforts to my Vault 101 fallout shelter.

Thanks for letting everyone know you're a traitor that hates America and loves Russia. Now we know where you stand. Imagine how they would have treated you during the McCarthy era, you and your treasonous President. Hillary may have been a crook - just like Trump - but at least she wasn't a traitor.

You bet I love Russia, some of the hottest supermodels are Russian. I say we open our borders and let all the Russians in who want to come.

The only red scare I see is from the left in their trumped up charges of Russia hacking the election.

I played the co-op maps back when it was under Revive, they were mostly just zombie hoards, fun target practice but not a substitute for actual players.

wow, serious price drop

https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/star-wars-battlefront-ii-2-pc-origin-cd-key

$38.79

30$ at games deal

It's worth $30 to screw around with, the shooting part is fun and you don't need every card maxed out - the idea of costing thousands of dollars to unlock "everything" before they took out MTX is a bit of a stretch.

They now start every player with crates for all the main soldier classes with enough to get you up and going.

I hated the beta and don't really care for the new direction that Star Wars has taken but it's a decent enough shooter with some pretty amazing visuals.

Darth Vader is Luke's father

“Owen, you must hide this baby, at all costs, from Anakin Skywalker.”
“Okay. Should we continue to call him Luke Skywalker?”
“Seems fine.”

I'm pretty sure I just saw COD2 gameplay

was watching it without sound, then listened to the video and one of the dudes in the clip says "this is the best shooter since cod2"

I wonder if Activision has a patent on the "look and feel" of a cod game?

They've already said that the Sci-Fi shooter arena is too congested for them to make BF2143, even though I would really like to have that game over the endless Titanfall games and half-assed attempts at making a "Star Wars not battlefield game".

BFBC3 makes the most sense, even the vietnam/cold war era as they can hit a those "diversity" notes without treading into historical controversy people like to drum up. Black people in my WWI game?

You could easily microtransaction cosmetics in vietnam/cold war era type game as well.

I would have liked the series to have picked up where BFBC2 left off, the Russians invading the US and playing out a Red Dawn type scenario in US maps.
