THE GDC RIDE ISNT OVER
STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT GAMEPLAY INCOMING
every damn thread there's ppl whining about ea or origin...
fuck off already i don't wanna hear about how you hate them for the hundredth time.
im hyped. ea aint even bad. some of their choices are kinda bad, but its a business and theyre doing all good.
AND ORIGIN AIN"T EVEN BAD YOU FUCKING WHINY MANCHILDREN
They are literally the pinnacle of the worst thing to ever happen to gaming.
They have done more harm to gaming in their life span than every other company fucking combined then multiplied.
inb4 star wars battlefield.
inb4 some idiot also comes in and say
>DURRRRR BUT BATTLEFRONT 1&2 WAS JUST ESSENTIALLY BATTLEFIELD BUT WITH STAR WARS
There is a distinction between GOOD battlefield and BAD battlefield dweeb
EA is a shitty company, and I don't find myself motivated enough to buy their Battlefield sequels because
>Origin is literally malware
>Literally over 100$ for the full package at full retail price
>Not enough changes in the series to justify the massive fucking pricetag
>yearly sport games
NIGGA LOOK AT FIGHTING GAMES. 8 versions of SF, probly 20 of BlazBlue
ppl just butthurt cause it ain't steam
cant think of anything else that bad
>tfw it's just battlefield 3 with clones
this is neo-/v/ anon
there are people who legitimately think tortanic has better writing than kotor 2, that FO3 is better than NV, that ME2 is better than ME1, etc.
>implying we restrict ourselves to 3rd person when we can bind a key for switching between 1st and 3rd person
>no instant action
>no local multiplayer or splitscreen
>no third person
>no varied player models (no Droidekas, normal battle droids, Wookies, Bothans, Wampas, Geonosians, etc, only the basic human model so that hitboxes are all equal and there's only customization for the troopers)
>day one DLC
>DLC map packs
>DLC special vehicles/weapons like Millenium Falcon and Han's Blaster
>BUILD YOUR PERSONAL TROOPER
>no Galactic Conquest game
>no Hero battle
>ranking/XP system for levels
>unlocks for vehicle weapons/equipment
>Pre-order to get the Epic Battles Pack to access the Hoth, Geonosis, and Kashyyk maps!
>Game ships with Obi Wan, Luke, and Darth Vader as the only heroes. All additional heroes are DLC.
>Don't forget to download the close quarters map pack to access Bespin Platforms, Rhen Var Harbor, and the Death Star maps!
>Purchase day one for you exclusive content Jango Fett Flamethrower!
yeah and Battlefront was a bad battlefield. I loved it because it was Star War but it's still not good as a legit BF game.
I am finding a lot of the hardcore Battlefront fans played it on PS2/Xbox which explains the obsession with 3rd person and bots
>(no Droidekas, normal battle droids, Wookies, Bothans, Wampas, Geonosians, etc,
>no bots or heroes
Sign me the fuck up
Sadly http://makingstarwars.net/2015/02/tons-star-wars-battlefront-rumors-links-star-wars-force-awakens/ suggests that heroes will be everywhere
>There is a distinction between GOOD battlefield and BAD battlefield dweeb
I forget anyone else remembers this.
Thank you for reminding me.
Fuck DICE SWE fell off a cliff in competence since selling to EA.
Why would they show a cutscene in a preview video of this nature? I mean, it's obvious what they showed is in fact a cutscene and not in-game footage, but I'm talking about the logic of their marketing.
They do a zoom-in on the guy's computer monitor as if he's working on the game. Why would anybody assume that's a cutscene?
>waaaaah i don't like that other people use third person because it gives them a miniscule advantage in certain scenarios, despite the fact that I could also use third person but wont because i'm a little cod halo babby
>so i'm going to shitpost in every thread with the same stupid image
no no no
player speed needs to be incredibly fast, like unreal tournament or something
no iron sights because why not?
and no dlc!
forget about it!
make it more like dark souls too
But SWBF was faster than battlefield. And there were never iron sights, or dlc. I really don't get your point. If they want a battlefield reskin, why change a well-loved series instead of making a new one?
As long as it doesn't have a campaign that makes the Empire look like mustache twirling villains, I'll be fine.
Pic unrelated, it is my waifu.
Are you implying the Empire did anything wrong?
>that FO3 is better than NV
Both are crap as Fallout installment. As vaguely action RPG sure, you can argue one is better than the other, but as Fallout sequels they both suck balls.
Yeah but Battlefront is open battlefields, it's not a hallway shooter or even a building raider like SOCOM was. And even then, I used to play the first SOCOM on PS2 online and never found a problem with third person door viewing.
>oh boy a battle-motherfucking-front!
>5 minutes of EA and DICE intros
>Made with Frostbite 3™
>Dubstep OMG SO INTENSE intro
>War is bad guise
>finally get to play
>servers are shit
>maps are shit
>entire game is filled with that EA's dudebro dubstep feeling
>Doesn't feel like star wars
>PRE ORDER NOW TO PLAY AS LUKE AND DARTH VADER
>level 50s on day one because of pay2win shit
>KILLED ENEMY +50XP
> The people playing only know about the shitty prequels
I forgot where I put my nostalgia goggles image, so have this gif instead.
>no local co op
>five maps (preorder season pass now)
>Bespin Platforms, Rhen Var Harbor, Hoth, Geonosis, and Kashyyk
>any of those
it's going to be all Tattooine all the time. It's literally the only planet in the galaxy left. Bravo JJ.
>implying there will be single player
>a battlefront game with zero single-player or local play with all of the game taking place in player-hosted servers
Honest to god mod maps were terrible. People fail to realize that mod content has always been terrible aside from very few exceptions, we also live in a new age where mod teams would rather make paid content (see: black mesa).
There is not a single game that I am more hyped for right now than Battlefront. It's going to be so fucking good. Even if it's just Battlefield 4 with blasters and AT-ST's I'm going to be fine with it. It's been 5 years since The Force Unleashed 2 and TOR came out in 2011.
Why don't you play something Star Wars that's actually good instead of playing shitty games just because they're Star Wars.
>mfw I love everything about the X-wing game but I suck complete balls and have only won a couple times
Because I've played every Star Wars game to death basically. It's time for some new, and honestly, this new one is going to blow the other two Battlefront games out of the water. They were great fun, but they weren't good shooters. This one will be.
>It's going to be so fucking good
While I didn't buy BF4, I played it and enjoyed it. Aside from typical EA bugs, at its core it's a fun game. I honestly wouldn't mind if it was just reskinned bf4 + vehicle combat.
Totally agree, I think BF4 has good, solid shooter and vehicle mechanics. And I think Battlefront is going to be a lot better in basically every regard. They've got a lot to prove and it's the kind of project basically everyone dreams they could get to work on so I have faith that it will be a labor of love for them to really nail it.
BF4 still isn't good, but a large part of the problem is the "hurrdurr realism" retardation being used to justify shitty design and laziness when they're not even consistent with what they make "realistic" and what they don't.
Since Battlefront isn't a real thing they might actually be able to get around that.
No, it is good. It's a fun shooter. But the fact is, it took them more than 7 months to actually fix it post release. That's quite frankly unreasonable, and I'm a forgiving person. The game itself is fun, but they released it in the most broken and unfinished state a game possibly can be. Same thing happened with Assassin's Creed Unity. They're still fixing that game. These developers and publishers better not try to pull more of that shit this year, it's gotten tiresome.
