News Comments > Star Wars: Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta Opens
12. Re: Star Wars: Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta Opens Oct 6, 2017, 15:26 DangerDog
 
Still disappointed that we had to lose out on playing a sequel to BF2142 for this over commercialized crap.

Even though I was never a fan of the clone war movies, I'mean who was? If the multiplayer gameplay was at least on par with say Bad Company 2 then I would probably play it. I guess I was way off base when it was first announced that DICE was given the license to Star Wars that they were going to make one with Battlefield mechanics. The only comment I read regarding why they didn't do that was that they didn't want to be labeled as a one trick pony act (oh the horrors of having a successful tried and true formula). The other reason was someone felt that Battlefield was too complex in terms of gameplay for little kids to grasp.

They still get their game labeled as a reskined Battlefield game by just about everyone if you read comments on the internet. If only that were the case.

Another Windows VR headset enters the fray with Samsung Odyssey.

I've read this headset is the one to own: AMOLED, super responsive, 110 viewing angle, highest res.

Probably the only one to get, the rest look really sub-par. Still $499 is a big ask considering there really isn't a killer game for VR.

700 cars would be great for Grand Theft Auto game but in a racing game you only care about maybe 25-50 of them, if that.

No Toyota cars either, stay classy Toyota.

95 gb download?

for a racing game...

This is why having a disk notcher is important. You can format and use the other side of the disk and get twice as much on it. Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77VlOLpWPbk

In a pinch, a regular hole puncher works just be sure to align the hole in the right spot.


2912 360k floppy disks = 1gb

276,640 floppy disks for Forza 7

the last disk has a read error

Having to listen to women voices and screams sure does wonders for the immersion factor for a WWII game.


Totally, guy. Running around with people using killstreaks, respawning, regenerating health, etc., I totally forget I'm sitting in my home and think I'm actually out there in France or wherever, but then there's a female and I'm like whoa, I'm actually playing a video game and not a soldier from 75 years ago.

I know right? I'm totally enjoying this 4th wave feminism WWII experience.

right off the start "men and women who cleared the beach"

all those women who fought on Normandy beaches, couldn't have done it without them. Sunny


No one whines that Wolfenstein created an alternate universe with Nazi robots. Consider this an alternate universe with female combatants.

What's worse? You having to have your immersion broken by female combatants in this one game, or females having to have their immersion broken by playing as a male in nearly every single damn game ever made?

That's funny because when I played Tomb Raider I didn't think, boy I wish I could control a dude instead. Women don't care that they're playing as a guy in a video game, only 4th wave feminists do.

the game is cancer though so the point is moot.

Wow. More boring Valve news about selling other people's creative works. "Can't wait for the next Valve announcement" - says no one anymore.

Gabe will most likely end up selling Steam to Microsoft.

not every track has changing weather conditions, rain in dubai might not make sense but they could have dust storms.

700 cars but you really only care about 25 of them or less, so they force you to buy a ton of cars that you don't want before moving to the next tier.

seems like it would have been a good platform to show off the new MS VR headset on PC's (and other VR headsets) but I doubt that will happen.

Confession time.

I have seen MAYBE 45 mins of Blade Runner. I understand there are roughly 5-6 versions of the movie. Which would be THE (or multiple) version(s) to watch before seeing 2049?

In the 80's when the movie was released they felt the need to have Ford do voice over to explain the story to people, only much later was it revealed that Ford deliberately attempted to sabotage the VO being added by doing a "bad reading" of the lines. I guess I'm still partial to that version because that's the way I saw it in the theater. I still think it matches pretty well with the film noir type mood.

That's probably the biggest difference, I think the rest is just adding a few extra scenes but nothing really important. I really wish we had gotten to see some of the off world stuff mentioned in the film. I just mentally splice in scenes from Outland into Blade Runner.

The director cut mainly answers the question "do androids dream of electric sheep?" or... unicorns.

Avatar 2: Just Say No

When I saw the photo I had to triple check they weren't talking about another live action version of Avatar the Last Air-bender. WTF is with all the kids? Not to be judgemental but, that's exactly what I'm going to do, show casing a cast of kids means it's going to be a steaming pile of crap. The original was at least visually appealing, the story was terrible. Maybe it's an experiment on Cameron's part to see just how awful he can make a script before the visual appeal doesn't matter.

actually the article says only one of the kids will be playing as a human in the movie, the rest are going to be child Na'vi maybe?

this quote makes me think it's going to either be some sort of timeshift "groundhogs day" or Stephen Lang is a clone.

"There's not a new villain every time, which is interesting. Same guy. Same motherf**ker through all four movies. He is so good and he just gets better. I know Stephen Lang is gonna knock this out of the park."

The biggest stake of hit or miss for Cameron isn't the movie but the massive outlay that Disney is doing to make Avatar World at Disney World.

Target demographic, kids.

Cameron praised the last one, he also thinks he can stick Arnold and Hamilton in the movie. Why not good old Edward Furlong?

This has great success written all over it.

Furie reflected on in a 2015 interview with Vice. At the time, he wasn't at all bothered that his drawing had taken on a life of its own.

"I think it's cool," said Furie at the time. "In fact, I'm getting kind of inspired by all the weird interpretations of it. I wanna use it to my own advantage and try to come up with comics based on other people's interpretations of it."

Asked specifically if he had a "principled objection" to art being used by those other than the original artist, Furie said he didn't.

You can't beat'em so he should have joined them, he didn't even try to out meme 4chan. I doubt he would have succeeded but he didn't even try.
