    Vladtheimpalerr Starting Off

    Will anyone here be playing Star Wars Battlefront 2?? I'll be playing on Xbox One. I got the elite trooper deluxe edition and will be playing on the 13th of this month.

    Syberia for free on GOG.

    2&3 are 57% off, I believe. Nope, checked, 2 is $9.99, but 3 is 57% off.

    Anyone play Fortnite? My Bro in Law wants a couple extra players. I've never heard of it, looks like SOD meets minecraft, sort of.

    Is he playing the pve or the battle royale? Extra people probably means he is playing the battle royale, which is closer to hunger games meets bob the builder. I am playing a lot of it lately and I'm open to picking people up with mics. Even new people are better than most randoms in this game if you can communicate.

    True story. If you don't communicate sometimes your toys are worth more than your life. Gives me some Fallout flashbacks where sometimes you have to murder people for their sweet sweet gear.

    Or because they fired first. 'I accidentally blasted you in the face' doesn't fly if I live through it. Anyone who plays with the 'fill' option probably has randy blood on their hands in this game.

    Apparently the refund button is missing from every single preorder game, not just Battlefront

    Apparently there is a cool down to how many credits you can earn in arcade mode. So pay to win, loot boxes, and a cool own to how much you can play. $60 mobile game confirmed.

    and of course they went on the safe route with the single player campaign....
    SPOILER:
    I wanted to finally fight for the glory of the empire, kill rebel scum, or you know, someone showing the human side on the empire......but of course is redemption story, the main character finding how "mean" the empire is and defecting

    Guess the lesson is, why the hell would I do something imaginative and original when I can go with the safe route?
    I was hoping to catch the game once it was in a deal for at least the single player story.....now not even that

    Let's face it. Most game companies do not choose to do a novel-quality story. If you want a Good Star Wars story, grab a Zahn book.

    That was not always the case. Story used to be the focal point of gaming. Some of the highest rated games of all time are from back in the day and they're story heavy rpgs. When run-n-gun became more profitable, it killed the story-based games. Devs can shit out r-n-g games every year (and have), while games that require writing take years to develop.

    I made myself sad. Think I'll go play Planescape: Torment, or KOTOR, or pretty much anything not DOOM or QUAKE from the '90s. :(

    Hey, I loved Quake3 Arena from the 90s, and Doom2 was a blast.
