Battlefront 2 gets a jetpack mode and goes 60% off in Origin saleBattlefront 2 gets a jetpack mode and goes 60% off in Origin sale

Isn't it technically not so bad to buy the game as long as you don't buy any microtransactions?

JTP1 Avatar

If you like the changes they made from the first one for the sake of monetization then by all mean, buy it. I for one do not. I have it any way because it came with the PS4 Pro I bought my kids for Christmas and I think I played for about 3 hrs before I uninstalled it.


Typically, the longer it takes a MP game to go on sale for half off or greater, the better it's selling. I know from friends who still play it and from popular forum sties, that people are complaining that it's getting more and more difficult to find matches in their preferred modes of play. I'm sure the 60% off is to try and stop the bleeding of players.


Funny thing that as SWBF2 falls in players, SWBF1 has risen in players.

Destiny 2’s population tracker is gone because it was used to “spread a false narrative”Destiny 2’s population tracker is gone because it was used to “spread a false narrative”

What do they expect. The game at it's core is a multi-player open world shooter which are a dime a dozen now days. I think the market has hit saturation. There are so many games that offer the same thing. People move from game to game so it's hard to keep players.

It doesn't matter how much extra dressing you put in a game, if they game is just another shooter at it's core, then that is what it is and those get old fast. Tacking on a single player story where game play is designed around multiplayer is just a band-aide on a leaking damn. Won't hold for long. Once the honeymoon with a new game is over, what is left IS your player base. A SP campaign probably won't get people sticking around for MP if the SP was the only reason they picked up the game in the first place.Reply

Well D2 is primarily failing due to it being a downgraded version of D1. Not because of oversaturation. Not that this isn't also an issue, this is just minuscule in comparison to the larger problem. The playerbase is displeased with all the streamlined BS that no one asked for and due to this, Bungie (a small portion of them, mind you, the rest of the devs are working on D3) is in the process of transforming D2 back to its predecessor, basically. Ignoring this as the main problem downplays what everyone, especially the hardcore playerbase, wanted from Destiny 2.

The IP is all over the place, I don't think they have anything safe left. Better just bury and make a new one which doesn't have any burden to carry.

You could probably add Skyrim and The Sims series in there as well. Though they don't really add sex as part of the main game, they can be modded to make nothing more than porn simulators if that is what you wish.

The three pieces of DLC that would have saved Mass Effect: AndromedaThe three pieces of DLC that would have saved Mass Effect: Andromeda
JTP1 Avatar

I couldn't agree more. I love the OT because of story, characters, and good dialog. It was the core of the OT that brought people in and made it the pinnacle of RPG's. With Andromeda, that concept was thrown out the window in favor of open world, world building, and a more multiplayer type combat system. None of which I remember people begging Bioware for.


They decided they are going another direction and the core of the OT isn't what is important anymore and it shows. Weak story, forgettable characters, and dialog that is aimed at the nickelodeon crowd. Bring back what made the OT great and I'm in, otherwise I'm done with ME series.

Why can they not do both though large open world Colony building and a great story? This is 2017 these companies should be more than capable of doing this especially for the money they charge.

Epic Games settle their first case against Fortnite cheatersEpic Games settle their first case against Fortnite cheaters
JTP1 Avatar
While I don't agree with cheating and the boy should be punished, EPIC is going to lose this if it goes to court. If Epic violated state law that is a criminal offense. The boy broke no criminal statues from the information given. Does not matter if they knew his age or not. This won't go well for Epic.

Best thing to do is settle out of court and hope Delwares DA doesn't go after them if in fact Epic broke state law.Reply
Homeworkman Avatar

EPIC cannot possibly lose this if they go to court. It is copyright violation. They own the rights to showing the gameplay, it's no different than putting a movie on youtube. If your curious why things like let's play videos aren't taken down for it.

A. they are, it's not that common but they are, I think nintendo recently started doing this.

B. there is a legal grey area where things can become derivitive works and such if you provide a lot of your own unique commentary etc.

C. fair use comes into this as well, though once you hit 20 minutes of use and not 20 seconds, it's pretty clear cut your violating copyright.


He's guilty. "if epic violated state law this is a criminal offense" it's a criminal offense in the same manner that jaywalking is also a criminal offense. Being criminal does not automatically make it spooky terrifying. They did not release his information, they sued him and the suit became a matter of public record, HOWEVER they did not know he was a minor, more over THEY COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN. The only way to force him to acknowledge them and verify his identity was to sue him, if you read the lawsuits it specifically says we have reason to believe ...


This is hardly different than what's known as a john doe suit where your suing someone without entirely even knowing who that is, you know what right was violated, you know someone did it but you may not know who and you through a john doe suit use the court to uncover who in fact it is you are in fact suing.


Deleware state attorney is going to recognize this and not go after them.


The whole idea of it's free to play therefore they didn't lose money is BS. It's free to play, but it's also optional to pay and they lost out on options, or at least one can argue a game populated by cheaters is one legitimate players are less likely to spend money on playing. It's obvious EPIC isn't paying it's developers with player's enjoyment of the game. They are generating tons of revenue from the game, so yes they could easily produce a profit and loss statement and make an argument cheaters devalue the property.

WHile I agree DAI was trash for me, DA2 is the best game of the series in terms of story, characters, and dialog. I also like the combat and tactics in it better than DAO, though it's a close call. For me the companions in DA2 are the best in the DA series and better than any in the ME series.

Even with all of it short comings DA2 was my favorite also. It actually had balls to try something different than you generic rpg.

Origins while it was solid product with sweet visuals felt like copy paste from several older rpgs, especially NeverWinter Nights 2.

Inquisition sank the franchise for me. Don't know what happened in the dlcs and I don't care.
