(Eurogamer)   EA: Our new Star Wars game will be single-player only and will have *NO* loot boxes. Hmmmm...if only there were a popular, topical meme to express how gamers feel about that statement. Perhaps with a well-known quote from the movies   (eurogamer.net) divider line

I'd be interested in this. I basically stopped all video games years ago when they all became some sort of online multiplayer subscription service you had to pay each month to play. I don't want that.

Give me a game I just purchase and install and play, I'll buy that.

Multiplayer stopped being fun a long time ago. Between the poor sportsmanship, the complete filth that comes out of people's mouths and racism, I just don't want to play anymore. Let's not forget the BS the developers pull on top of all of that.

But still good meme responses so far.

And I'm not pretending this is anything but EA in panic mode, trying to desperately seem like they've 'learned their lesson'. It may not be forced multiplayer and there may not be loot boxes, but that just means EA figured out some new way to squeeze money out of the game. EA is just freaking out because Disney is reforming LucasArts to take over the Star Wars games, and they realize that the gravy train is about to stop, so they need to milk the absolute last drops of blood from the stone before it's gone.

The premise sounds decent, considering how disappointed I was in The Force Unleashed 1 and 2, I'm not getting my hopes up yet. If it has fun gameplay and isn't too linear or too short it could be a lot of fun though.

i'm amazed they (ea) have let it go this far.  i thought they were embracing the "games as a service" mantra, and monetizing everything they could get away with.  while i'm kinda looking forward to the game, the fact that ea, voted the worst company in america a few times, has their hands all in this, gives me pause.

Indie games do exactly that. There's a huge variety out there and they all use the good old, honest, buy once play forever mechanic along with many fresh ideas, bold experiments and a personal creative expression that the AAA market would never dare attempt and at wallet-friendly prices. You just need to go out and look for them. It reminds me of when I was playing games on home computers in the 1980s, when I never knew what completely new concepts in games were coming next but I knew there would always be some on their way.

The more time goes by the more I am convinced that the best thing that could happen to the industry would be for a lot of old giants to finally die and make room for fresh blood.

I'm with you on that wish, except I'd swap out the X-wing for a Tie Fighter. Screaming around the galaxy like a psychotic bat blowing shiat up is my unrealized fetish.

The Witcher 3 is very much up that particular alley.

I came to the games late, and CD Projekt Red has done nothing but impress me with their commitment to telling a great story with fun gameplay-albeit with a terrible inventory management mechanic.

Good news.  There is a billion of them.  Even from triple-A studios.   Please, do, tell me more about how video games are all terrible, hollywood movies are all remakes, and how you wear an onion on your belt.

That is the line they use later, when they inevitably add micro-transactions and loot boxes.

Didn't they claim that the last Star Wars game they made was going to have a long single-player campaign and no loot boxes, too?
 
2019-04-14 07:55:11 AM  
Hey...EA...if only there was some studio under your roof that has had success with Star Wars related projects, that were famous for their character development and deep single player experiences...

Oh, that's right, you were too busy gutting BioWare to make Anthem...

Seriously. I found the story line, and the conversations I had with people, were way more fun than combat could be in Witcher 3.

I don't play a lot, don't spend a lot of time playing or investigating games. I like a very specific type of gameplay. For a long time now, I've found it difficult, with the limited time and energy I devote to it, to find games that fit those particular parameters. Single player is one of the criteria, and even many of the games that are billed as 'single player' are still squad-type gameplay.
Now, maybe you're heavily involved in the gaming industry. I'm not. I just like what I like.
No need to take it personally.
Hell, I AM heavily involved in "Hollywood" and don't take your snark about all movies being remakes personally.

The side quests did it for me. Sofa King many just little random things and odd bits not even in your contracts-and since a good chunk of those could be solved without any combat at all, all the better.

It laid down the gauntlet for every RPG, and set the new standard for how a game should be built and how a company should treat its customers. Easily some of the best DLC done in a long while. And on top of it, a LOT of free DLC as well, just because.

I am seriously anticipating Cyberpunk later this year.
