    to me this still feels way to close to the force unleashed, even takes place almost at the same time, just a little earlier. the general story is exactly the same though from what i understand, youre one of the few remaining jedi and its your job to start building the resistance...

    Cool to see them have Dathomir in there. Hopefully the witches and warlocks will be involved, some of the coolest lore in SW universe.

    Unfortunately I will be skipping, because its EA and they have proven they cannot make a game that will not eventually have MTX.

    Greez Dritus a Latero species... So I see the same crap from the Mickey Mouse movies about "Ster Wers". They come up with new species, new planets and pretty much anything.


    I was excited until I read this. Now this is a HUGE red flag. No need to read anymore and care about this game. It's going to be some trash with dubious plot like the other Mickey Mouse movies that makes absolutely zero sense and pushes some annoying agenda down people's throats.

    Too bad Star Wars is dead. I guess I will go back to playing Star Wars Battlefront 1 (2004), Jedi Academy and read the Timothy Zahn books about the Expanded universe and rewatch movies 1-6.

    Such a shame.

    I dont mind them creating new things and planets or have new unkown lore if it fits in with the rest. I don't like the agenda they have shoved down your throat in the new movies. I don't understand why everything has to be so pc for todays culture. as far as the game goes it looks meh I really widh they would make an elderscrolls esq game where you had free roam and all that in a Star wars settings.

    Sounds like an interesting game.

    Shame it's from EA, means a hard pass from me.

    That attitude likely has the opposite of the desired effect. 

    EA's efforts at genuinely good consumer-leaning games tend to go unrewarded. I'm talking about the Titanfall 2's of their lineup. When these things flop, which they almost always seem to, that sends the message to EA that their more ambitious, story driven games don't sell. 

    Reforming these companies is just as much about rewarding the good as it is boycotting the bad.

    The game looks fine, but it diminishes the impact of Order 66 with another Jedi running around.

    Quite the opposite. The Star Wars EU has multiple examples of survivor stories and at multiple times shows how they are hunted. This is no different, and it's a great opportunity to experience this era of the timeline.

    It is still so weird to me to not be excited by something not SW related. I just feel nothing for this game at all. Excited for everything else SW for the rest of the year but this game looks so meh. If reviews are positive I will pick it up down the line though

    But the real question is, can I romance every blue and green woman in the galaxy?

    And I'm the opposite. The movies of the Disney era have been so vapid and disrespectful, that this game is the only genuinely interesting piece of Star Wars content to me right now.

    Thats a weird since this game is heavily tied to the Disney era. I mean characters from Rouge One are showing up.

    I just wouldn't be surprised if they tie it more into the Disney Movies is all. I mean they keep saying that its canon and keep hinting that this character will be mentioned in later SW movies. I wouldn't be surprised if at the end of the game if he runs into Luke before he goes into exile or something

    Edit: Scratch that just remembered this game takes place after 3. Not after 6

    Correct. This takes place between Episodes 3 and 4. Which is also the same time that Rogue One takes place. If the game is to be canon, it would be more surprising if it didn't contain some references to Rogue One.

    That does make me slightly more interested. I forgot all about that nugget as I haven't really cared enough to read a ton of articles or watch videos

    Reforming these companies is just as much about rewarding the good as it is boycotting the bad.



    I boycott EA after finally realising that every game I've played that had their fingers on it ended up being disappointing. Not terrible, or broken or anything like that. Just disappointing. They tend to have a fairly solid core gameplay loop, but that's usually it. Almost every single EA game I play, I feel like I'm just starting to get into it, like just passed an extended tutorial........and then it ends. After investigating, I realised it's because EA stifles creativity, is almost completely risk adverse, and just isn't interested in making good games. They'd rather invest their money in graphics (that sell games), instead of investing money in great gameplay.

    Combined with their habit of cannibilising interesting game studios and terrible monetisation, it just makes sense to not play their games any more.


    That said, my primary objection really is that they make bad games. If they make a good game (by my standards) then I'd probably play it.

    This game in particular, I like that it's Star Wars and I like the sound of combining combat with more of a platformer feel. But thats it. The combat itself sounds shallow, the progression very linear and predictable. I couldn't give a damn about story, I HATE story in my computer games (well, developer narrated story anyway).

    So, yeh, looking at this game and what I know of it so far, I am predicting about 2 hours of initial fun, then mostly boredom with the occasional bit of delight at new Star Wars zones, and maybe an extra 10-15 minutes of fun if I unlock a new skill that happens to add some depth to the gameplay. That's purely from my personal view point though. I'm sure this'll be a great game for the masses, I've just been playing games too long to waste money and time on EA's mediocrity.

    [One exception - the skate games. Still mediocre in general, but I'm just in love with the core skate skills]

    I'm the opposite. I could see myself having a run through this, Mando looks interesting etc, but Episode IX? DON'T CARE.

    Which is a funny turn of events. Gee, thanks Rian!

    Edit: I also don't want too see too many new races. Come on, this takes place during R1, I want the comfort and familiarity of Zabraks, Twi'leks etc.
