Star Wars Battlefront II
« on: October 07, 2017, 09:46:04 AM »
Multiplayer beta out this weekend. Not too bad, but still feels like Battlefield Lite. Full game will include a full single player campaign as well (something the first one didn't have), so I may grab the game anyway.
Favorite mode is still Starfighter Assault; there's just something about flying an X-Wing that's irresistible to me.

That's Star Wars Battlefront in a nutshell, though.  People keep saying how the new games are nothing like the old games, but they're not really all that different.  Nostalgia vs new, nostalgia almost always wins.  Still, I wouldn't give LucasArts a red penny on principle.  If you went to a restaurant where it's rumored that there's a piece of poop in your food 1/5th of the time, would you really be surprised if you got pooped?  Would you pay for it?  That's kind of how I feel about LucasArts, people keep complaining about what publishers are putting out and ignoring what people are saying, but they keep paying them for their games that they complain about.   :o  The last good Star Wars game was Jedi Academy.

At least Ubisoft is finally on the verge of collapse.  Speaking of Ubi, They made a deal to purchase back something like 40% of their shares, in an attempt to go private.  Because clearly the issue with Ubisoft is that they are a publicly traded company, and that's why they're going broke...  :popcorn:
