It's okay but there's too much going on and it's hard to tell where your enemies are. Plus it's an objective-based team-shooter so it's going to be a very frustrating experience with randoms.

That said it looks pretty great even on Xbox and since I only care about the story mode I might get it sometime early next year after the first pricecuts.

I'll grab it super cheap. I do like the look of it, but I just have too many good games I want to play this side of Xmas already and can't see me putting enough time into this. Never did go back to the original either despite enjoying it around launch.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Hero Costs Reduced 75% Ahead of Launch


Today Electronic Arts has announced that hero unlocks, a point of contention that the internet was so mad at that they starting lobbing death threats at the developers for, will be reduced in the game by 75%.

Here’s the breakdown of what each hero will cost at launch.
◾Luke Skywalker – 15,000 Credits
◾Darth Vader – 15,000 Credits
◾Emperor Palpatine – 10,000 Credits
◾Chewbacca – 10,000 Credits
◾Leia Organa – 10,000 Credits
◾Iden – 5,000 Credits

EA says that by lowering the prices of these heroes, they will be both an achievement to earn and a goal that is accessible for all players. The developers will be continuing to take feedback on the game and will “keep making changes to improve the game experience over time.”

While the changes do sound good for the player on the surface, the more important and pressing question that’s still on everyone’s mind is the rate at which you earn credits in the game and just how long you’re going to have to spend to earn the other items in the game that come out of loot boxes. These items include power-ups for your characters and vehicles that are at the center of an argument on whether the game is pay to win, or not.

Regardless, this contentious point is one that needed to be addressed. It doesn’t appear that EA will be walking back loot boxes and an RNG progression system anytime soon. Perhaps their upcoming Reddit AMA will shed light on the future of Star Wars Battlefront 2. Stay tuned for the Star Wars Battlefront 2 Ask Me Anything on Wednesday as it’s likely going to be a shit show.

I would of bought a copy of the SP was good but I read it was short and ‘ok’. Which is not enough for me.

It's 'bargain bin good enough' I suppose. Will check it out early next year, no interest in the MP though.

Its all a bit of a mess. And I totally saw an average and super short single player mode coming. One to get when its £5 in a couple of years time I think, too many actual good games coming out (or in my backlog to play) to mess around with this right now.

The lootcrate stuff is maybe the first time I've seen reddit get outraged at something and stay outraged at it for more than one day.

Apparently EA went and removed the pre-order button from their website, it had gotten that bad.

I don't know how I feel about the whole thing. I envy those who have it so easy and have such comfortable lives that this is the thing that makes them the most incensed. But also their outrage seems to be working which is kind of cool in a way.

I know this is probably the least important aspect, but I do wonder what the conversations are like with Disney about this. I wonder if they’re like “Everything is fine” or “Why are you pissing off our fans?”

Read about the LA times stuff, Disney don't give a **** about anyone. Watch Florida Project also because it's good and tangentially about that stuff.

Disney's CEO is considering a presidency run. Shit would be worse than Trump.

Also watch the South Park episode where Mickey Mouse fucks up the Jonas Brothers.

Well, they seem not to give a fuk about anyone who isn’t saying good things about their products. Technically this game is a Disney product, so I’m wondering if they emailing EA going “What the fuk?”
