I think I would have tried to capture the claustrophobic feel, large open warehouse setting seems out of place. Live actors using the actual game environments would have been interesting and not technically difficult today.

Still a cool marketing vehicle instead of the usual fast edit hype trailers.

Commodore didn't know how to market the Amiga, they should have dumped the 500 systems by the truck load onto schools for free or close to it, kids would have then told their parents to buy one for their home. It worked for Apple and the Apple II computer.

we really need to get into the head of the character that's running at you screaming and holding two bombs in his hands.

No Man Sky is suffering the same problem, cool tech demonstration now how do you fill it with a compelling "game".

The omnipresent nano-bot police shown in their recent video proves this point, it's a lame attempt at forcing the player behave a certain way in the world. It works in a game like Grand Theft Auto, start killing a bunch of people and the cops show up. Supposed "unexplored" planets, not so much.

Reaching the center of the universe isn't much of a hook either, there needs to be purpose to doing it in the first place.

I'm still waiting for someone to recreate a modern graphical version of Starflight, they crammed a lot of game onto a 540k floppy disk.

Shift was something they started with Borderlands 2, all I remember is getting a few keys to open chests from it.

Thanks for the good news.....yeesh!

Anyhoo, I hope the game isn't just Battlefield 4 reskinned....

We'll all get to see when the open beta (gameplay demo / server stress test) begins.

From the gameplay videos released so far it seems like they're really aiming for a casual arcade shooter and doing everything they can to not have it labeled a Battlefield clone. It's really down to captivating people with the sights and sounds of Star Wars with enough fidelity to have people overlook any shortcomings in the design of the game.

Having Battlefront in the name means they are also aiming to please the fans of that franchise primarily while at the same time buffering themselves from the ultra critical Battlefield players.

Maybe the sound of John Williams score and the authentic reproduction of Star Wars assets will be enough to get people on board.

I really doubt you'll ever see a structured, scripted campaign mode added to the game - it sort of goes against the sandbox theme of Elite.

Co-op will be peer to peer, as was the Co-op mode in Battlefield 3.

Dedicated servers but not the kind a clan would rent out and call their own, nobody except EA will have the ability to tweak gameplay settings. No high-ticket servers or community based administration.

Clans will have to utilizes whatever party mode they enable, join on friend from your Origin friends list - however since the game is setup for two man fireteams joining on a friend most likely won't put you on the same team, just in the same server.

"skill based matchmaking" they made the same claim with Titanfall, the general hope was that cheaters would eventually be matched up with other cheaters.

I'm still convinced that to a greater extent it was Marcia Lucas that was the true hero behind the success of Star Wars and many other movies. I can imagine her being the only one to tell Lucas a bad idea from a good one.

The version I saw in the theater included an extremely short scene of Luke looking up into the sky with his binoculars and seeing an outline of the star destroyer, sort of hazy. It also included the full version of Leia kissing Luke "for luck" before swinging across the trench in the death star. I've never seen the full version of that scene ever again. Lucas tampered with the movies from the very start, he just went full retard on the special editions.

I only hate games where there are guns lying around but you're not allowed to even pick them up. I think they did a good job with the first one, there were some guns but you weren't very effective with them. It also helps to brake up the monotony of running and jumping everywhere.

If all the physical combat is devolved down to quicktime events then it'll be a pass for me.

Its worth 5 of my bucks at best, definitely not paying full price for this. Was really hoping they would make it at least semi-realism like the First Strike SW mod or the newer BF games with more focus on the first person perspective, instead of cranking up Battlefront's 2 Arcade to infinity and beyond. *Shrugs* Oh well, nothing I can do about it, so perhaps the winning move is not play it and move on.

A Star Wars Battlefield game would have drawn too much nerd rage from people moaning about it being nothing more than a reskinned version of BF4. Just look at BF Hardline as an example. They decided to pick up the "Battlefront" game franchise and thus they're hell bent on making sure it has no direct ties to Battlefield, even though I'm sure a lot of the game modes will have their comparisons.

What's going to suck is if they model future Battlefield games around this design of having matchmaking only with instanced dedicated servers.

It'll have dedicated instanced servers, you won't get any custom gameplay settings so no high ticket servers for team deathmatch etc.

The game comes out November 17th so you'll only have to wait another week before you see it in all the black friday sales ads, it'll probably be $47.99 at the usual places. That is if it's even worth considering.
