    I'll be never get my hopes up for a Star Wars game again while EA has anything to do with it.

  • The_ABC_b0Mb3R LV.4 Big Chungus Apr 10, 2019, 09:27 AM

    Not after star wars 1313🙃

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 12:29 PM

    Shoot some have been pretty damned good if not great. The 2 Force Unleashed games were pretty damned good & you can NEVER go wrong playing Battlefront

  • Cryosphere LV.22 Insomniac Apr 10, 2019, 12:39 PM

    ...EA went wrong with Battlefront.

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 12:41 PM

    That's your opinion. I thought it was fun as hell & had so much fun playing with my brothers

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 12:41 PM


  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 12:45 PM

    Sounds like your a hater. I thought for what the game was it was pretty damned good actually. It was an ambitious game that didn't miss the mark by that much. Was it perfect, no of course not

  • Cryosphere LV.22 Insomniac Apr 10, 2019, 01:04 PM

    Well, I was writing a concise and thought out reply to your first question. But since you've already disregarded me as a "hater", I think I'll leave my opinions unsaid.

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 01:12 PM

    Oh man I was just playin, It's all good. You're entitled to your opinion. I guess with games & movies these days I don't get to hyped. I know it sounds arbitrary & simple, but I'm dead ass. If you go into a game or movie or even a TV show expecting average (I mean most things are only gonna be average right) That's why it's just But seriously if you expect average & just look for the good things (especially what parts of a game are fun) then you'll be pleasantly surprised more often then not. Well I have been a lot happier & less stressed. It's pretty cool

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 01:15 PM

    EDubGames  For me looking at content this way makes me only hate things that are truly bad & I just don't think Battlefront was awful

  • Cryosphere LV.22 Insomniac Apr 10, 2019, 01:29 PM

    EDubGames  That's pretty optimistic of you. Part of me feels the same way, and lets mediocrity go with mindless entertainment like blockbuster movies. But part of me would rather be perpetually disappointed than accept mass-produced half-assism staying the norm.

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 02:12 PM

    Cryosphere  Mindless entertainment...again I see what yu mean & I try not to over consume stuff like that but I honestly think there's fun to be had in most things. Plus there are a lot of people who aren't super rich in Hollywood that depend on mindless entertainment to pay the bills. People always bitch & complain about the higher ups who copy & paste movies, or remakes so they don't have to come up with a completely fresh & new idea. For every studio exec lining his pockets from mindless entertainment there are 100's of employees who are just getting by like the rest of us

    Battlefront was ok.

    Star War Pay2Win Awakens

    People still not trusting EA should remember they’ve definitely learned their lesson considering Battlefront II was hugely reworked and now has no in game purchases except for cosmetics. The game also had huge reworks with progression making it much easier to unlock new characters. In addition to this new modes have been added and fixed. The game at launch already had one of the best dynamic soundtracks of all time but it was so overshadowed by the loot box disaster.

    TL:DR - EA fixed Battlefront II you should trust the company again. If you like Star Wars you probably won’t be disappointed.

  • Kevin (JahRocker) LV.3 Lurker Apr 10, 2019, 11:14 AM

    You're not missing out on anything if you wait for the game to come out and see how it is before buying it.

  • Bulbasaur green LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 07:14 AM

    Are you serious?

  • King Takumi LV.21 Clearly Hacking Apr 10, 2019, 09:04 AM

    Oh no

  • FutureLeaf LV.33 Super Star Apr 10, 2019, 09:23 AM

    Honestly, I LOVED galaxy of heroes! Hyped for this game, and maybe it’ll hint at the Star Wars 9 👀

  • Jade Nyenhuis LV.5 Lurker Apr 10, 2019, 07:47 PM

    Hint hint

  • elunatica LV.2 Lurker Apr 10, 2019, 09:35 AM


  • vrginllama LV.3 Lurker Apr 10, 2019, 09:47 AM

    Yes EA has had it's blunders by come on! Respawn Entertainment and Star Wars? Hell yeah! It's no Star Wars 1313 but I'll make do with this.

  • Jade Nyenhuis LV.5 Lurker Apr 10, 2019, 07:48 PM

    Star wars rules!!!

    No thanks I'm good

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 01:17 PM

    That's crazy to me, your out no matter what? What if It's the greatest game ever? LOL

  • NO NAME verified Apr 10, 2019, 01:21 PM

    I rather play anthem

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 02:13 PM

    How do you know though

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 02:16 PM

    Just curious & I'm sure you will like Anthem more but to be so closed minded to not even wait till the game comes out seems like a shitty way to live. What if I said the same about Anthem b4 it came out, I'd rather play Spider-Man

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 10, 2019, 02:17 PM

    Then I'd miss out on an awesome game like Anthem

  • IzFudge LV.30 Xbox Apr 10, 2019, 08:30 PM

    Is is gonna be another Battlefront 2????

  • EDubGames LV.7 Nomad Apr 11, 2019, 11:29 AM

    I don't think so, why wouldn't they just call it Battlefront 3. I mean, despite some fans hatred to it, the games were very successful & they would make enuff $ on the franchise namg alone
