"Initial" Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box-related changes go live

SweetMrGibs

7 months ago

I've been mainly sticking to Galactic Assault, but thought I'd give the Starfighter battles a go. My lord, if someone could take that mode, blend it with the classic X-Wing PC series from the 90s, they'd have an amazing game on their hands.

@R1SC No, it's ridden itself of unnecessary and tedious mechanics, and added end-game content that caters for everyone. Mythic+, for example, will provide a challenge for even the most hard-core player. Just because WoW is accessible and offers something for everyone, doesn't mean there aren't challenges for those who seek them.

World of Warcraft: Legion day-one sales match series records

@Kremlik The fact that they've already announced 'Return to Kharazan' and it's due on the PTR in a week or so, gives me confidence that we'll see it this side of Christmas. It seems to me a conscious effort on Blizzard's part to demonstrate that meaningful content will be coming at a decent rate. There's talk that Nighthold should be out early 2017. Anyway, I agree, Blizz have failed to prevent these awful 'no-content' periods (post-ICC, post-Hellfire Citadel being particularly painful). I read that they're moving to a strategy of adding content to the existing expansion, rather than moving to the next one and letting the existing one languish. Time will tell.

I'm really enjoying Legion. Blizz seem to have taken on-board the issues with WoD and ensured that the bad things (Garrisons) have been re-imagined (Class Halls) and have added longevity to proceedings (Artefact traits, Mythic+ dungeons). And as for Suramar... wow (pardon the pun), what a tremendous looking zone.

We can agree or disagree all we like chaps, but at the end of the day, if people are willing to buy virtual houses, ships, etc... it will continue to escalate. We all buy things so we can enjoy them, and if people intend to invest a lot of time in this game, and it gives them pleasure, so be it.

Side note: Perhaps the term "Virtualistic" will replace the term "Martialistic" in the future?

I always considered Alone in the Dark (early 90's version) to be the game that popularised survival horror. Or was it the pre-cursor? Either way, great game :)

Are they saying that GHTV will be a channel, like, actually on TV? If so, are they saying that it'll broadcast specific shows, e.g. soft rock shows, Metal shows, TotP, etc...? And are they saying that everyone who owns Guitar Hero Live can tune in and play.... against each other? Sorry, but if that's the case that sounds AMAZING. Imagine tuning into "80's Rock Night with Magenta Devine" then battling it out with thousands of other players. They could even go all 'Sky Sports' and have a live ticker showing the current top 10 players of the song currently being played.

They could even broadcast famous concerts from yesteryear which you could play along too. Maybe.

@thevillagedrunk

I think they used something similar in a Cthulu based game. To be honest, I'd try and design the environment to affect the player's imagination rather than forcing some kind of 'insanity/trauma effects' idea. If the atmosphere/environment is scary enough, it'd do the job itself.
