  1. Battlefront II's new Ewok Hunt mode is really fun. I would love to see it expanded with more maps.

    1. DarkRula


      Time-limited event, just as with Jetpack Cargo. It's certainly a fun mode, but seems to have one sure-fire tactic that works. Wookiees vs droids would be fun. Can't think of anything for the sequel trilogy, but I think there'd only be one new map added, just as with Jetpack Cargo.

      Finally, a game where I can play as the Vietcong.

      @DarkRula Since we now know that the devs are willing to place players in mode-specific maps and skins, a TPM Naboo Palace Guards vs Droids mode could be neat, or an ESB Snow Troopers vs Wampa mode, or maybe a Clone Wars tank battle. They could even do a Poe Dameron vs Dreadnought turret defenses mode, right out of TLJ's opening.

      I like that they're experimenting at least. It makes me excited to see what they think up next.

      Definitely want more of this Ewok Hunt though, weren't there like 3 good sized different Endor maps in BF2015? They've already ported one, I'd love to see more brought over. With a bit of work to mix things up (cave ins, etc) it might be something special.

      Endor had two large and two small in 2015. To be honest, I'd like to see what they could do with an all new map again, or at least give us a more open mode that's not time-limited. The 2004 and 2005 games could offer a few hints at what might come. A Battle of the Naboo Plains between Gungans and Droids would also offer something new.

  2. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    Kim Jong-un only agreed to meet after Mike Pompeo, CIA Director and Trump's nominee for the vacant Sec of State position, secretly met with the DPRK's dictator a few weeks ago. Clearly there's a lot going on behind the curtain that we're not privy to, but given Pompeo's hawkish credentials, I'd hazard a guess that existential threats were issued. I'm coming around to the view that Kim Jong-un might be taking a leaf out of Putin's book, and will be manipulating Trump via his ego, in order to get away with murder (and then some). Do remember, though, that South Korea's President Moon Jae-In did make improving relations with North Korea a key plank of his election campaign, and he was the man who made all that Olympics stuff happen. If peace between the two Koreas becomes a reality, Trump will loudly claim all the credit, but he probably won't be responsible, and hopefully the Nobel committee will see that. Trump to initiate his own Saturday Night Massacre today or very soon? A police memo has been leaked... Now, Trump's at Mar-A-Lago all week, where he's typically surrounded by a lot of people who want Mueller and the FBI investigation gone. This, while Comey is doing his book's publicity tour, without the people who used to manage him (Hope Hicks etc), and Trump having a lot more time than normal to binge watch TV and get very angry. When you think about this confluence of events and those involved (or not, as the case may be), it's difficult to see Mueller, Rosenstein et al making it out of this week with their jobs intact. Trump's Saturday Night Massacre taking place in a midterm year when a blue wave's very existence may turn on that very action (or lack thereof) shows a complete lack of awareness for how bad his party and agenda's chances are. Or maybe he is aware, and feels like he has nothing to lose. Or, perhaps, he believes this North Korea thing will pan out exactly as planned and that he and the GOP will ride that wave to victory in November. Bizarre times.
  3. Why can't they just do an updated Sonic Mega Collection with all the Sonics?

    1. TheOcelot


      Because SEGA

    2. Kiah


      Because that sounds too much like a good idea and SEGA doesn’t seem to understand what that means more times than none. 

  4. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    The strikes will do nothing. The Pentagon has no Syria strategy, and Trump has publicly expressed that he has no desire for a war, so Assad and Putin will just wait them out and go back to business as usual, same as last year.
  5. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    I don't understand why Assad would launch a large chemical weapon attack at this late stage of the Syrian Civil War, when his victory is all but assured via conventional means, and when chemical attacks are one of the few things likely to draw foreign powers in on the rebels' side. Did Russia force, or otherwise coerce, them into attacking with chemical weapons, to get the UK spy poisoning fiasco (and the UN investigation into it that Russia has been blocking) out of the headlines? Are the Russians trying to divert western rage into Syria while they move enormous numbers of heavy weapons, military personnel and other war materiel to the Ukrainian border? Edit: This is beautiful: Almost as beautiful as Mark Hamill reading out a fresh batch of Trump tweets:

    Not only that, but the postal service actually makes a lot of money from Amazon, so losing Amazon's business would actually deal the USPS a heavy blow. Fucking news out the wazoo this week. Republicans: Lack of family values is killing America! Look at Clinton & Lewinsky! Also Republicans: Trump's many affairs, multiple cover-ups, and this illegitimate love child, are all fine, because voters don't care about them. We're cool with all of it. Can you imagine the furor among the right-wing press and political establishment if any Democrat had done what Trump has? They'd be baying his (or her) head on a pike! Proof, if any more were needed, that values and morality are partisan. This runs both ways - how many Democrats ignored or otherwise excused Clinton's affair(s)? We generally only really care about them when someone on other side gets into shit, and try to look past our side's indiscretions. This is why so many Trump voters are impervious to his many, many scandals. https://www.themaven.net/theresurgent/erick-erickson/a-congressman-s-profanity-laced-tirade-in-a-safeway-grocery-store-SeHI2l5bIECGQn4gmnzGaw/?full=1 Absolutely incredible. I hope that he's right when he says that many of them would vote to impeach Trump in the event he gets rid of Mueller, but at this point I have no faith that they'd do that. But maybe if they reasoned that he had become a far greater electoral liability than getting rid of him would be (as ordinarily it'd be electoral suicide), the knives may well be out.

    James Comey's book is getting a ton of press attention tonight, and will likely dominate headlines over the coming fortnight. Full WaPo article here. Stunning stuff. Trump is going to go absolutely through the roof, for days on end, over this.
  8. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    He's probably seen the writing on the wall, had a think about the yuge profits yet to be made, and decided to get in on the ground floor. I half expect Ryan to do the exact same thing. A lot of these retiring Republicans are going to find their way onto the boards of weed companies as legalization spreads. Meanwhile, Trump continues to be an idiot: Uh-huh. >"I will not telegraph my military actions." >*Telegraphs military actions* >*Sharp u-turn after this is pointed out* Twat.
  9. Tree Tops looks a bit underwhelming to me, largely because the dark skybox has been replaced by something... lighter. I dunno, we'll see how it plays at release, but I liked the darker feel. What of Misty Bog? I'm sure I caught a glimpse of it in the trailer.
  10. Spyrohmygodthatlooksbeautiful.

  11. I think this is whatcha call one o' them "day one" purchases. Mmm hmm. I'll be there with bells on. Gimme some o' dat sweet sweet nostalgia.
  12. Counter to the joyous game status:

    What was the last game you played which filled you with bad feeling (buyer's remorse etc)?

    1. Briraka


      Godzilla Unleashed for Wii.

    2. neezTHEhuman


      Secret Rings

    3. Blacklightning



      The mechanics are confusing and obscure, and some of the controls for building literally just did not work when I last played it. It's a pretty strong reminder of why I don't support early access games, and it's baffling to me that anyone is upvoting this game at all because it ranges from utterly bland to completely unplayable.

      The Deleter


      Overpriced shovelware

    5. TCB


      ...Splatoon 2. Got Doom instead.

    6. Kellan


      Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers. My mom gave it for Christmas, and it is just awful. If it had come out six years ago, on the internet, for free, I might have played it once if I was bored in school, but they should not have charged what I assume to be full-price for that Flash game.

      I did let my mom know that I appreciated the gift, though.

  13. That feeling when you resurrect from death after 3 days and your legs are mired in pins & needles...



  14. The best thing from the Fleetway Sonic comics that Sega should've appropriated were the Marxio Brothers.

    They got that mascot rivalry, slapstick comedy, harebrained scheming, communism. What's not to love?
