god shut the hell up.

I mention a difference about platform versions (the goddamn anti cheat of all things) for the benefit of others to know what they're getting into, and now everyones got a stick up their ass. AGAIN.

dont ever mod me. I'd ban way too often

Val is such a PlayStation fanboy. The last page is a prime example lol. No matter what someone brings up about XBox he will go the opposite.

This game looks dope. I can't wait to try it out.

I know its hard 4 you to understand de3d1
Who is buying based on better visuals but still doesn't buy the best visual version.

Let me add I don't espect a major difference with the Pro and X version... ruh roh!

Many people including me. I just don't like pc gaming and know only one other person who's a pc gamer. It comes down to community, ecosystem and controls. People who prefer controllers don't want to be matched against k/m gamers. Best console version is the best version to the typical gamer.

Absolutely agree. I don't have a PC, but for multiplayer, I'd avoid PC's because of KB&M if I did have a PC.

Deeper? Nah and UC4 has a decent multiplayer mode with a healthy amount of players.
I was referring to the single player. For sure the MP is better in UC4. The RPG elements alone make RotTR deeper. The games are more different, i think, than people realize, though.

Yeah i hear this.
I was talking about comparing both games as a whole. Mp adds much replay value imo.

As long as they could detect whether someone was using a controller and match us up based on that, I'd be all for it. Thing is, I'm guessing less than 2% of PC gamers use a controller with shooters.

I've played all of them, UC4 and TLL are both MUCH better than ROTTR IMO, it was a good enough game but it just didn't live up to the previous game in any way. Clearly the point of his tweet was one group was talking about new games that they have to play now and others had nothing to focus on but old games, I'm sure you are aware of that though.

Clearly the quality of what series is better is all subjective, I personally find the stories and characters in UC to be far more fun/endearing than those in Tomb Raider. At the end of the day they both do basically the same thing, try to beat some bad guy to a treasure or relic, it's pretty much the same thing in a new setting every game.

I LIKE the characters in UC... I LOVE Lara Croft...
Everything is the same if you reduce it enough. They play very differently and have very different Tones.

Oh no doubt, that's why I like UC better as there is actually some humor and character interaction that can draw you in vs Tomb Raider which spends a ton of time on Lara talking to herself. As I said I like them both too and there is no wrong answer here, we all have different things that appeal to us but I think UC4 and it's expansion were both MUCH better than ROTTR. The previous Tomb Raider was an amazing game I played through several times, I played Rise once and that was enough.

I think you're all wrong, Jar Jar was just Lucas' Rick Roll of the fanbase and I for one am glad he's the lead character for Battlefront.

You riding my jock gets older

So when your console had all the advantages over the *other* console for years you made sure everyone knew it in every thread. Any time someone posted something in favor of the *other* console you made sure and told them they're wrong. You was on that mountain top. Now that the *other* console now has the advantages you downplay it and it's no big deal. Riiiiight.

I let it be known X versions visually should look better but carry on.

holy s*** just move on. we have something that looks like an actual complete star wars game this time, there is so much more to talk about.

Datamined files hint towards jango fett and general grievous as playable, jakku and death star 2 maps, and some fairly detailed weapon customization. No word on pot leaf skins though.
It's all over the place. but no lets keep talking about console preferences.

I'm gonna tell on you.

So far the only thing known as of now is whats in this image.


It might be some form of mission based thhhing, or just multiplayer with bots. In any case, split screen is console only, and progression carries across modes, excluding the story mode. In regards to offline modes, the devs have stated that they don't want the "skirmish" mode to just be offline multiplayer, like it is in the first game. Whatever they have planned, we don't exactly know. There's not been a whole lot of news there, it's mostly been on the online multiplayer front, which really is the show horse anyway.

Shocking developments!
or something. and rather fortuitous with the timing.

Skirmish might be a retread of the old mode, as in pretty freakin boring.
A dataminer/insider/something (with an okay track record, supposedly) by the handle of "some_info" on the battlefront reddit has said

There will be no skirmish on space battle modes or for big maps (like hoth/naboo/kasyk) skirmish will look more like very mixable challenges , completing the mission in a certain time etc.

It is pertinent to know that the image I linked above could no longer be found on EA's site. I didn't think much of it but now it seems they want to draw attention away from it because the mode will not have much to offer.

Eventually they can't give that s*** away. Never buy season passes. You'll get owned in the end. They still trying to sell the Gears 4 season pass and you get no benefits whatsoever really..
