PC sales are mostly digital, I wouldn't even know where you would look for a retail copy of Battlefront 2.

It's still doing pretty good in game population wise, no problem getting into a game in just a few seconds for all modes.

It's going to cost at least a billion dollars to rework the alert system alone.

Why believe in a simple mistake when you can play in conspiracy theory fantasy land.

oh I don't know, maybe because it took them 20 minutes to send out another text message that it was a false alarm.

but the system test button could be right next to the "Armageddon just started, this is not a drill" button.

Sounds like they wanted to see what people would do, I don't buy the "wrong button" excuse. If it's politically motivated, what is it that you want to happen? War with North Korea, again?

The sad thing is is how many of you believe CNN and a source of a source of a source as real news.

The brainwashing is significant in this thread.

Please, give us an example of "fake news" from CNN.
Please, just one bit of news from them that was incorrect and remains uncorrected.

've already cited, several times, our own President giving us incorrect information on Twitter, just this week. In case you didn't read it in this lengthy thread, he saIid that he didn't go to the UK because of a bad deal Obama made. Sadly for us, this was misinformation, deliberately or mistakenly, as it was Bush that made the deal.

So there, I've given you an example of Trump giving us "fake news." Your turn to back your claim. Frankly, I expect we just never see you again, like every other person we ask to show us "fake news" on CNN.


How about that time when CNN reported that Trump didn't stand a chance at being President.

I didn't know the ESA was a go to source of such worldly importance, I wonder why they don't wield this power over removing lootboxes from games.

movement looks like a 1:1 copy of CoD.

https://youtu.be/Q8XSFT4kqu4?t=127

CoD clone confirmed.

I would be fine with someone making an authentic CoD 2 clone with better graphics, I always found the player movement in CoD games to be off putting but if your goal is to out CoD Activision then it's a good place to start.

Not much to get excited about, they're trying to make a Call of Duty clone.

Seems to affect servers the most, after Intel refreshes the Xenon line in hardware maybe there will be some good deals on ebay and the like.

It's odd that so many people don't get this. Lawbreakers wasn't aimed at the casual market the way Overwatch and the Battle Royale games that are currently all the rage are - it's success was largely hinging upon the buy-in of the hardcore PC gaming market. The very same one he's told to fuck off many times throughout his career. Of course Lawbreakers suffered because of his past indiscretions. That said, given the aforementioned major shortcomings surrounding Lawbreakers, it was never going to be a smash success. At best it was going to be a niche hardcore shooter darling similar to the first Tribes, but I have no doubt it failed to achieve even close to that because of who's project it was.

I think if Lawbreakers had been appealing, it wouldn't have mattered. Instead, he offered a bland game that had been done many times before in a saturated market.

You could replace Lawbreakers with PUBG and it would still hold true, the runaway success of PUBG is probably causing a lot of head scratching around AAA studios.

Always spread the blame.

How does PUBG's success have anything to do with LawBreakers failure. They are two totally unrelated sub-genres. Games that are sort of similar to it like Overwatch are still thriving. The problem is that the game just didn't seem all that interesting or original.

Their originality was "vertical gameplay". They didn't take into account that fucking nobody likes aiming at epileptic targets above them in the air in an FPS. In fact, the fact that that's how you have to fight Pharah in Overwatch is one of her perks.

And yeah, blame Overwatch which is still as successful as it was since release. PUBG is comparing apples with oranges.

It's kind of ironic because Cliff B. said that he hated Tribes, and then he goes off and makes an aerial FPS shooter. Maybe if he added skiing and jetpacks to the game with outdoor type spaces with rolling hills it would have been better..

Seemed like Overwatch was the direct competition, even gearbox failed at carving a niche into that mountain with 'Battleborn'.

Still not sure what Cliff B. was thinking on LawBreakers. Hard core Twitch shooters seems like a recipe for disaster.

What really sucks is now every game here on out will have to be battle royale.

Not a fan.

Star Wars in video game format has a better chance and surviving the catastrophic missteps made by Disney's movies but I don't think they'll allow for anything creative like a KOTOR game, just too risky.

The single player campaign in Battlefront 2, having a campaign focused entirely on playing as an Imperial Elite trooper was too much for Disney to accept. Two missions in and you change sides. It doesn't even hold a candle to the original Dark Forces in terms of "story".

Poor Mark, out of all the original main cast members I think he was the only one that truly loved Star Wars.

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.
