where are the patch notes? i can't find em anywhere online...

I heard that IRNV won't be able to see through smoke anymore... is that true!?

Not sure if that's in this patch or not, they were also going to slow down the re-arm rate of C4.

Maybe their next venture could be selling space ship renderings with the extremely vague promise of eventually letting you use them in a game setting.

The prequel "clone war" era (error) seems to be completely off the list when it comes to Disney Star Wars ventures, I would be surprised if anything besides pod racing makes an appearance at their new Disneyland Star Wars pavilion at the park.

Every time I see a post about someone being upset about there being no prequel content in the new Battlefront game it almost feels like they're trolling.

What's the early thoughts on Infinity Battlescape?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sglhi_PIEX4

they've been showing a prototype for their tech that goes back to 2006 I believe.

really cool tech demo, don't have enough confidence to back their kickstarter.

both games are utterly incomplete

Nah elite delivered what it promised - an updated version of the classic. It even tacked on some multiplayer.

In terms of Elite vs Elite Dangerous it's a huge leap forward and a complete update of the original game.

Unfortunately gamers expect way more these days - but ED did deliver what was promised for me.

all i expected was what they said they would deliver during the kickstarter: a campaign. that was all i wanted. then they announced ONE MONTH before shipping that the plans were scrapped. i then collected my refund and moved on.

I don't remember that, wast it some sort of stretch goal? I must have backed it before that came up.

Offline single player was in the pitch or added as a stretch goal. It was scrapped last year and they offered refunds I think.

oh yes, offline mode. well we all know the real reason they did that was because everyone would have pirated it lickity split.

They have a flight model? I thought it was just free cam mode with a space ship hud attached to it.

Huh, that dropship looks pulled from Supreme Commander.

Also, this game features the voice talents of Katie Sackhoff, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman, and Jeff Goldblum. They're not mentioned in the trailer though. Strange.

most of them are in the zombie co-op part.

the main game looks like Titanfall without Titans.

George Lucas: "Video games can't have plots"

click bait article over a non story from 2013

plots is a poor choice of words, emotional attachment to characters seems to be the holy grail they're talking about. despite attempts at playing the emotional card in video games they always seem to fall flat of anything noteworthy. maybe it's because it always feels so forced, it doesn't have much to do with the cartoon aspect of the graphics I mean pixar movies can tug at your heart strings pretty damn well. fuck you pixar!

Also, I'm just going to call it "Redtube" from now on. Can't be bothered to type the full name.

google is going to have to buy up that url lol

if the paid subscription model means less idiots like pewdiepie to sift through then maybe it wont be such a bad thing after all.

The chainsaw is a quick time event now, I guess they could have it in multiplayer but it's not much fun to have no way of defending against it, it's a lame game mechanic like how the knife attack is in BF4.

I thought they were adding jetpacks/jump jets to the game but maybe I'm thinking of something else. Looks like they're adding the translocator from Unreal Tournament.

Too bad it looks like they're still not using the same creature designs from the original, this HD painting of a pinky shows how cool it would have been.

The problem with Battlefront is that its Battlefront. Needs to be more tactical like Battlefield. How could DICE screw something like that up? Oh wait, EA Furious2

So the problem with the game is that it's just like the game it's based off of? Oh wow...

Other than being 3rd person / 1st person shooter set in the Star Wars universe it doesn't have much more in common with the original Battlefront games - which were more or less Battlefield games with Star Wars skins.

Oh come off it, the original ones were just the same, you ran around and pew pew'd your lasers at enemies until someone one. I agree that there's less overall features in the new one, but the gameplay is really not that different core wise.

no argument from me, some people call those features "depth" when in actuality there are usually just one or two classes that are effective to use. It's not like you're going to follow around an AT-AT with a repair torch, that would look pretty damn stupid.

I just don't see the value in it. Adblocking is free already, and $10-13/month is hugely overpriced.

they'll probably flip a switch that makes it impossible to use adblock on youtube?

What people are referring to, regarding Battlefront III, I think are some of its ideas/mechanics/features - not its graphics. I think that part is pretty clear. Where-as the new Battlefront has pretty graphics with a totally gutted feature set in comparison, which to me seems more like a cash-in for the new movie hype until DICE moves on to something else.

I think it plays more to the idyllic dream or fantasy of a Star Wars game, the ability to transition from planet into space for example while really cool sounding might not play as well as one would imagine, at least not for a round based multiplayer game where matches are expected to last around thirty minutes to an hour. You could break it down in stages where you either start on the planet and transition up to a ship or vice versa, that might work.

From what I've read it sounded like Battlefront III was crippled from management continually changing the game under the developers feet. There might have even been in fighting politics between Lucasarts and Free Radical over which Star Wars game received the most attention, Force Unleashed won apparently.

Anyways, I find the tug of war between people arguing for a Battlefield clone and what DICE ultimately came up with amusing but completely irrelevant. Keep sharpening your pitchforks, maybe eventually your grassroots campaign to topple the corporate overlords of AAA gaming will succeed.

Played the Beta a while. When I realised it was nothing like Battlefield 4 with a Star Wars skin, as I originally wanted, I uninstalled it and cancelled my pre-order. Absolutely terrible piece of crap. There's so much stuff it needs to make it fun, it's not even worth paying for the electricity that runs your computer and your router to download this game.

Blame all the people who hated on Battlefield Hardline for that one, if they had made a Star Wars version of Battlefield people would be flipping over tables left and right. They just can't win.
