    And people thought that the prequels were the worst possible thing that could happen to Star Wars.

    Just download Battlefront 2 (Classic), you’ll almost for sure have more fun than in this game…

    Episode 7 was crap, Rouge One was crap, Battlefront 2015 was crap, this will also be crap. I’m done with Star Wars for now and that includes the new film.

    They’re utter shit but so inconsistent with the original films that’s easy to ignore them that isn’t so with this new trilogy where your favorite characters are brought back as old depressed losers who didn’t accomplish shit as everything repeats itself.

    The Force Awakens was worse for the series than the prequels almost purely because, while the prequels had midiclorians, at least the prequels didn’t make the character development of Han, Luke and Leia as well as the efforts of the rebellion in the original trilogy COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS. You might as well just go from the prequels right to the sequel trilogy.

    And that doesn’t even begin to mention how terrible all the characters except Kylo are.

    But those movies weren’t progressive enough so fuck em gotta replace em with a cheap clones that check off as many CURRENT YEAR boxes as possible while making sure to ruin the films that came before it.

    Besides the obvious SJW bullshit, it also seems like the writers/directors of these films completely forgot about interesting character development when they made Rey a Jedi Master with no character flaws or any kind of weakness whatsoever.

    Yup. The new ones are actually worse.

    Don’t forget about MaRey Sue.

    On top that being some Abrams mystery box bullshit that will probably never be explained it allowed them to create right out of the gate the most powerful and special SW protagonist ever who just happens to be female gee wiz I wonder why’d they do that :^).

    Fuck Disney for making it non-canon. It included some really important events like the destruction of the clones on Kamino.

    Yeah…hate that Disney pretty much axed the whole EU thing, it was a stupid move.

    Thanks EA, I actually had an interest in this game till you fucked it up.

    That was exactly my problem with The Farce Awakens. She was more tech savvy than Han cause reasons? Could master the force cause reasons? Could defeat a more experienced Sith cause reasons? Luke had to earn his status this mary sue bitch gets everything handed to her.

    EA has an exclusive license for Star Wars games.

    I’m confused as to why these aren’t Battlefront 3 and 4.

    They aren’t remakes, as far as I can tell.

    She literally fixed the Millennium Falcon in a Fonzie style by just touching it, despite having 0 piloting experience, and she holds her own against a Sith Lord who has had years of training, while shes only held a lightsaber for a total of five minutes in her life. Her story arc is already complete, she is just a plot device now for action scenes.

    Luke had to wait till the end of ROTJ until he could competently fight, and even then he wasn’t OP.

    going gold doesn’t seem to mean anything anymore since damn near every game has a day 1 patch now

    Why is that bitch’s (it is a girl, right?) helmet so fucking big? She looks like a fucking bobble-head at the end of the video.

  21. OldPalpy

    Christ you aren’t kidding it’s terrible, it’s like they didn’t bother to scale the helmet to her head it’s either that or they just make it freakishly huge so there is no chance of the head clipping through during animations like that.

    Reminds me of a script made by a fan of a 4th Matrix film in which was revealed that in reality, the machines were put into a Matrix of their own to prevent them from destroying mankind, which. I thought that was the line no new writer should cross, you should never disrespect what gives gravitas to your universe.

    Hah, never considered EA to be lazy with graphics. Here I thought it was just a poor design choice. Makes me wanna know now what she put on her head during the mo-cap sessions.
