    DARN. I CAN’T WAIT. Each new trailer that drops really gets me more and more hype

    so are there single player loot boxes that allow you to skip levels?

    The trailer is fancy and all, but the actual campaign gameplay that’s been shown off so far looks extremely average and unimpressive.

    Reasons I’m not buying
    A. The last game ripped me off so they can fuck off this time around.
    B. EA.
    C. We’ve seen nothing of the actual single player.
    D. EA.
    E. I will only trust reviews from independent reviewers (Angry Joe, Nichegamer and so on)
    F. EA.
    G. Loot boxes have made the multiplayer a pay to win affair.
    H. EA.

    Only EA could make a starwars game look so fucking boring.

    Given EA’s recent attitude to single player I doubt this will be any good, especially with some of the people behind it.

    Fuck yeah, another bland FPS Shooter in a Star Wars Setting.

    As a long-time Star Wars fan (and, more specifically, an ardent fan of the EU), I say this: anything Disney Wars isn’t worth my time.

    >the Empire is supposed to be a white supremacist entity
    >one of their best pilots isn’t white

    There’s that Diverse White Sumpreacy™!

    Hitler should have had more mulatto women in his army, he definitely would have won then.

    It was decent. At least worth a play through.

    It was, from what I heard, that’s why they got fucked by EA, Visceral Games was not that lucky to be able to at least release the game tho…

    Star Wars died when they tried to bring it back.

    Uhhh, was there even any actual gameplay footage in that trailer?

    I think it’s an alien doing a bad impression of human.

    Not trying to be funny here but I really can’t tell if this is male or female.

    It was mediocre, thus not worth the install.

    I haven’t purchased any EA games since 2011, and I don’t intent to start now.

    I thought they were human supremacists, rather than white supremacists. I mean, Jango Fett wasn’t white and they made a clone army out of him.

    Its clear the Anti-SJW have became the SJW just like Antifa are the facists. Their is no difference between the two.

  30. Ebicentre

    Yes, but the Empire was inspired by the Nazis pretty since its inception. And future creators have gone on record stating that the Empire is indeed continually inspired by that.

  31. catazxy

    More like: It died when Disney bought star wars and then sold the game’s license to EA

  32. Nagato
    October 21, 2017 at 12:21 pm

    Issue is DICE making it, when they haven’t made a decent single player since the original Mirror’s Edge.

  33. Nagato
    October 21, 2017 at 12:22 pm

    Indeed, and even the human part was far from set in stone, as seen with Thrawn and EU Sith getting to positions of power as long as they excelled at what they did.

    The recent movies just going for a white supremacist looking guy speaking at the equivalent of a Nuremberg rally is really nothing more than the guys behind the movies being lazy and uninspired.

    The official Star Wars writers at Disney mentioned that they are closely working with the writers at EA. Maybe it will be good, I dunno.

    The last couple of movies weren’t exactly great so this doesn’t give me much confidence.
