I was extremely hyped when they made it seem they had learned from the first one's mistakes. Then it turned out that they had indeed "fixed" the problems with the first (season pass splitting the player base, no singleplayer content etc) only to have everything else be a dumpster fire.
Although the space-combat portion looks fun, I'd only really be interested in the single-player campaign which does NOT look worth $60 US. None of my friends play multiplayer battlefront (they're all trying to convince me to buy PUBG).
Yep. Got it this morning, played the singleplayer intro on my lunch break. Couldn't give a shit about the multiplayer and its associated lootbox fuckery, I bought the game for the singleplayer campaign and the splitscreen skirmish mode.
Nope. I was kinda curious about the SP camapaign until the whole Lootbox thing soured me on the game and EA(moreso then before). Then I find out the Campaign is pretty lackluster and the game is apparently buggy as shit.
So gonna pass on this. You had ONE job EA! ONE JOB! Make a GOOD Star Wars game! That's all anyone wanted. But noooooo....you had to EA all over it.
I only got the first game because someone bought it for me for Christmas and I wasn't going to be an asshole and make a fuss about it. It was fun for a little bit, but then it got boring. Even if this shitstorm wasn't going on, I'd have no interest in its sequel.
Negative on that.
You could basically say that I stopped buying games 2005/6, when steam started.
I'm not down with "renting" games or just loosing control of the game I've bought.
All the rest of the shady practices that have followed only reinforced this view.
Games in general have also become more cinematic which I don't condone.
More cinematic and casual/console, without a corresponding added worth to it, I should say
There are a few exceptions, which are basically niche AND indie that I'd be willing to buy.
The only problem is that some of them have mechanics or camera perspectives I don't like.
I still love the idea and and principle of gaming itself, just not this iteration of it.
Nope. Lootcrates aside, I'm not getting it because of the lackluster single campaign. No idea why anyone buys multiplayer games for full price - you guys remember like, Starcraft, that had a full single player and multiplayer?
