    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1..._Fallen_Order/

    This game does not appear to be a UE4 remake of Dark Forces.

    Yawn.

    Yet another in the genre of Star Wars games that are just skins of other trendy and popular games.

    I hate the pc games industry.

    INTERNET CONNECTION; EA ACCOUNT; STEAM ACCOUNT; ACCEPTANCE OF EA USER AGREEMENT (terms.ea.com) & ORIGIN END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (ea.com/legal); AND DOWNLOAD & INSTALLATION OF THE ORIGIN CLIENT SOFTWARE (origin.com/download) REQUIRED TO PLAY. YOU MUST LINK YOUR EA AND STEAM ACCOUNTS TO PLAY; EA WILL SHARE YOUR ACCOUNT ID AND INDIVIDUAL GAME AND PLAY RECORDS WITH STEAM TO VALIDATE YOUR PURCHASE AND/OR REFUND REQUEST.
    I guess even console games do it these days; I think some game my son bought for ps4 or xbone required some 3rd party account just to play. This crap is ridiculous.

    If you think that’s bad, when you play the disc forward it installs Windows!

    ... Yeah, that's it. That dropped my interest in this game from 0.05/100 to indescribable numbers beneath the chances of GBK ever releasing Hysteria - or anything else.

    I remember it taking me a while to agree to getting Origin because I had just played through Mass Effect 2 and wanted to see that story to the end (cue "ME3's ending" quips). After getting SW: Battlefront (2015) solely for the Battle of Hoth training mission (it being more or less the 2015 remake of the first level of Shadows of the Empire), I've avoided and shall avoid EA like the plague.

    Without doing any research I'm still going to blame EA for screwing Mass Effect up after ME2 - Mass Effect in genral could have been the sci-fi thing of the decade

    I only have Origin installed because I got the gigantic Command and Conquer compilation several years back for $5 but what's wrong with Origin compared to Steam? I avoided Steam like the plague for many years.

    I'll never forget how Battlefield 3 had it's own mini facebook built in where you could like (in game, HOOAH) each person's unlock or comment on it like it was Facebook.

    Naturally I coded a macro to spam all of my friends with hundreds of HOOAH notifications. They hated me.

    "Hooah" is grossly overused in the Army as well although it is a highly versatile term.

    ...it's only just now that I realized that UPlay and Origin are not the same thing.

    Also: Hysteria will never be released. Ever.

    There's some trailer. I have some hope for this one actually, though it may be unwarranted. It's an EA game after all. I'll hold off judgment until we see how the game turned out!

    It'll probably actually be fine. When I picked up BFII for next to nothing I was actually pleasantly surprised by the single player campaign.

    It looks a lot more like the last three Tomb Raiders with added SW.

    Which I am absolutely fine with.

    looks good as hell imo and Respawn has yet to make a bad game

    EA's been weirdly quiet abt promoting it though so it's possible it's not going to meet expectations. Or EA is just not willing to go to bat for a singleplayer game that doesn't have a ton of games-as-a-service stuff attached. We'll know soon enough I guess!

    Would it be surprising if EA closed down Respawn and took apart the staff? I mean, it didn't have to be a bad game for a studio to be shuttered under EA before. I'm guessing Apex Legends would be something going for Respawn to stay together, plus the good talent. Still...

    Man that sounds cynical.

    Almost tricked me to clicking on a metacritic link, Kroko... as if that's a useful metric for whether or not the game is good, SMH my damn head.

    Fallen Order has 90/8.6.

    For comparison:

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has 93/8.1
    Gears of War 2 has 93/7.8
    Star Wars: Starfighter has 84/8.0
    Final Fantasy 13 has 83/7.2

    Never underestimate how many people will "like" the most boring **** just because they're supposed to like it.

    Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens has 81/6.8 on Metacritic. Almost all of the mixed and negative reviews are from Johnny-come-latelys giving it negative reviews in retrospect only after the circlejerk has died down.

    Right now there are a lot of Rey body pillow owners out there just happy there's a real Star Wars game. If you want reliable reviews, you'll have to wait. Unless you are also a Rey body pillow owner, in which case you'll like it whether it's a good game or not, so don't sweat it.

    For example, I love this about Skyward Sword:



    Edit: Start at 25:05

    I mean, watch the whole video because it's amazing. But also start at 25:05 just for the Skyward Sword bits. As someone who got into damn arguments with people about Skyward Sword, watching this was cathartic at the time. Of course now it's the consensus that Skyward Sword was a terrible game.

    I'm pretty sure this video became Breath of the Wild's design document.

    Good video. I always felt like Tevis Thompson's "Saving Zelda" piece from 2012 was BotW's design doc, too. http://tevisthompson.com/saving-zelda/

    Some contend that all of this is really for the new kids and we longtime Zelda players (the actual fan base) just have to suffer along like patient older brothers and sisters. If only anyone could convince me that the tangled conventions that define Zelda were also approached with new players in mind. Zelda pretty clearly wants to have it both ways, but it’s hard to imagine either veterans or novices being satisfied with, say, Skyward Sword. Every Zelda has to be someone’s first, but I can’t help pity the player who thinks this is what the legend was all about.

    Actually, we needn’t speculate on what the gods of Zelda had in mind when designing the difficulty. Eiji Aonuma, director of Zelda since Ocarina, spoke to Game Informer about this directly:


    “I never actually finished [the original Legend of Zelda]…I almost feel like there’s still no game more difficult than it. Every time I try to play it I end up getting ‘Game Over’ a few too many times and giving up partway through. Certainly after playing the original Zelda for the first time, I didn’t ever think that I wanted to make a game like that.”


    Congratulations, Mr. Aonuma – you never have. Instead, you’ve taken the teeth out of a hardcore series. There’s no real danger now, no risk, nothing to lose. You’ve redefined game designers as the ultimate helicopter parents.
    A lot of overlap w/ Egoraptor's vid.

    Fallen Order has been called a Soulsvania. I don't know how true that is, but it should be right up your alley. If they incorporated those influences well, I mean.

    I remember giving up Skyward Sword somewhere between the dowsing and getting raped by ghosts.
