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.

What I would like to know is who took the picture of him in handcuffs and released it?

The focus of the story isn't on some kid who took apart a working clock and stuffed it into a cheap briefcase (he didn't make anything), it seems to be about muslims and islamophobia.

No, I'm not saying this teen is some master-mind genius that concocted this idea to generate a sensational story about "intolerance" of muslims in the US but his dad sure is.

Really want to see how they could have implemented speeders on such small maps, did they slow them down to a snails pace?

Likely it's only thanks to the EU basically forcing Valve to offer some kind of refund policy which in turn pushes something like EA to have a better minimum as to what is acceptable with their games for fear of a refund backlash.


Pretty sure EA/Origin offered 24 hour returns before Valve offered up their return policy but yeah it all revolves around the EU rules.

Never in the history of gaming has mixing live action footage with a game been a worth while experience.

I disagree, C&C and Wing Commander games were awesome with the live action footage.

Okay, I'll concede to those games. Their mystery science theater 3000 quality at least matches up to the genre. The acting is always so awkward and cringe inducing, but you know it's going to be a horrific train wreck with this game.

I'm not a fan of online racing and I think this one is online only, I prefer to have the ability to reset the race when you screw up.

link? also, give me a time in the video.


uh how about throughout the entire video, he's moving back and forth and just facing the general direction of the enemy while scoring hits. The gun is visually pointing in different directions but it doesn't seem to matter.

It may not be auto targeting but obviously there isn't any penalty from moving and shooting, if you tried to do that in Battlefield with an LMG you would just be chewing through ammo without hitting anything.

lol anyone who thinks that was autoaim shouldn't be allowed to use m&kb.

you should be forced to use a controller. you are not worthy.

couple of sections it looks like the aim point "jumped" to the target, I know I've seen this behavior with the space ship combat.

Muni broadband is the way forward.

Only if it's done right and in so many places they gone fucked it up, like in Utah where Google ended up bailing the whole mess out.

Even in places where they've seemingly properly implemented it you have political shills conspiring with the corporations to have the whole system unplugged, like in Tennessee.

It looks good, but he seems to be shooting people 500 yards away. He must have heat seeking bullets.

Probably on console? Looked like auto-aim.

And LOL those AT-ST's die from one full blast of whatever those machine gun lasers every player was using. Even turrets! I'm going to assume they don't have server options to turn off things like third person view (easier to see over ridges) or limit how many of a certain kit/class is available. Would have been nicer to see a new Battlefront to be at least semi-gritty/realistic than what I just saw in that video; everyone just running around like headless chickens holding down their machine gun laser. Here's the "First Strike" mod for instance, movement is slower, guns don't fire crazy fast, looks better in full FPS, AT-ST's don't die stupidly fast, etc.

Server options?

* There's no server browser
* Matchmaking only
* Instanced servers
* They even obscure player ping on the scoreboard

So if DICE decides Team Deathmatch rounds should last 10 minutes that's the way it goes, you can't have custom anything with regards to how the game plays.

Ahh crap, do I have to play this game in 3rd person in order not to be at a disadvantage?

My desire to play this just plummetted.

Probably with a console controller as well, it looked like aim assist was engaged and if not then this is even more casual than I thought.

Too bad DICE won't do the same thing with BF4 (although they have to a certain degree by not releasing night maps for last gen). EA already committed themselves with Hardline by selling "premium" on last gen.

I think the goal with Star Wars is to obscure the data (unless there's a player count on the menu screen somewhere, I think Titanfall had one). The other aspect is you have to play the game the way they want it played, no tweaking kill count numbers for Team Deathmatch or Conquest so the matches last longer. They're even filling in the multiplayer with bots to give you a sense of a full server even when it could only have a few human players playing.

Just like Hardline it'll have a strong start but will die off quickly once people play through the content and grow tired of the maps. The lack of control over servers in Star Wars might actually speed the process up, just look at how fast Titanfall died as well.

It peaks at around 2000 players a day on PC, even the xbone and ps4 numbers have dropped off.

I would say the biggest mistake was making this a last gen game if they would have dropped the xbox360 and ps3 potentially it wouldn't be as hamstrung as it ended up being (limited amount of destruction, inability to get features they want to fit into the remaining memory of last gen consoles - gun bench for example.)

It could have been an expansion for BF4 to test the potential for a stand alone game but instead they decided not to. The single player is a joke and on PC it's just a lazy port of the console - no FOV adjustment so it's locked down at something low like 65 degrees.

They keep putting it on sale, I think it's $25 right now but the numbers don't seem to go up.

The multiplayer modes aren't that bad gameplay wise, heist and bloodmoney are solid. The problem is the maps are rather weak and so you have a bunch of 24/7 servers that run only one map like 24/7 Bankjob for heist.

I think Hardline is a perfect example of why DICE is wanting to obscure multiplayer details with the Star Wars game - unless there's some way of tapping into how many instanced matches are being played you won't have a clear indication if the game is dead or not.

id buy a premium ed for 10

I bought it for around $30 and I think it should be free if you own the game, no big surprise that it's not even a penny off during the current sale on Origin.
