EA could use some good faith right now and what better way to make Star Wars fans happy than by bringing back the (debatably) best video games the franchise has ever seen? It’s time for the lack of Knights of the Old Republic to end.
They will fk it up somehow
Unfortunately you are probably right. But I would love a return to form.
Not while EA is in control of the Star Wars license
A full remaster of Kotor 1+2 would be appreciated but hey they can't add microtransaction and they are linear games we all know how ea feels about that so highly unlikely.
Who says they couldn't? $5 for each saber crystal color. Pay to win components.
Thanks for the disagrees from those who don't get my point. I'm not saying they should do it, just don't think EA couldn't find some way to screw it up.
I think the disagrees are because saber crystal colors would be a cosmetic item and thus not be pay2win. I would be fine with such micro-transactions also pay2win in a single player game is hardly something that I find abhorrent. If someone wants to pay 5 bucks to help them get through the game easier so long as it does not affect the progression of the actual game play naturally I could not care one bit. Buying experience packs and stuff of that nature is in many single player games that most on this site would be surprised about... such as Tales of Vesperia and I'm sure many other last gen and current gen games.
No thanks. The extended universe is what has created so many of those rabid moronic fanboys who only want swashbuckling lightsaber fights and Boba Fett to miraculously come back from the dead to kill everyone single-handedly.
So should we have Jedi sitting around, talking about trade negotiations instead?
Maybe more films should be about important political topics. Ironically, those parts were for the adults in the audience and the 31-year-old manbabies weren't having any of it. "Ewww grown up stuff? eeewwwwww"
Whats the point of star wars then?? if not for the jedi?? Your a strange dude complaining about lightsaber fights when its the very core why star wars was very popular. if you take the jedi and lightsabers away, whats the difference of star wars vs. other scifi spaceship dogfights?? star trek, battlestar galactica
Ask Rogue One. Popularity = money but look at Transformers: The Last Knight. The audience can only take so much of the same thing and eventually the money will go down. The team behind The Last Jedi made some tough (but obvious) choices so that the series can last a bit longer. And I say to those who were moaning about Luke's place: we live in a dark time, old white fellas aren't as popular as they used to be and the ideology behind the powers-that-be is looking harder and harder to take seriously every day. That is what The Last Jedi's Luke was. He was a contemporary tortured hero that had more dimensions than his usual 2. And with the attitude, him throwing the saber over his shoulder, the crashed iconic X-Wing etc: people were warned
Well Thats just your opinion and majority doesnt share that. But i know whats disney and lucasfilm is doing. they want a clean slate, a new gen star wars where they will replace the old one by one until none is left. It started with han, now luke. next is leia, chewbacca r2d2 and c3po.
Can't believe we're stuck with EA doing all Star Wars games through 2023. I hope Disney gave themselves some kind of out.
Out from what? Electronic Arts also just gave them the best selling Star Wars game in history, this has and will always be about money.
It isn't the biggest ever, didn't even beat its predecessor, so what are you talking about? Analysts are predicting it won't ever surpass it. This after EA took a huge stock hit and Disney had to force them to change it. Disney won't put up with negative backlash. So by out, I meant some way for Disney to break the deal. They should have thought twice about joining the most hated company in gaming.
@yom- https://www.dualshockers.co... So again Electronic Arts gave this company the best selling Star Wars game in history that is an objective fact stop arguing know where that I even stayed I was referring to Battlefront 2 simply that Electronic Arts gave these guys the best selling Star Wars game in history. Battlefront 1 didn't just disappear simply because Battlefront 2 released, at the end of the day regardless of Battlefront 2 numbers Battlefront 1 is still the best selling Star Wars game in history. Electronic Arts has a crapload of number ones in front of their name and at the end of the day this is about business not about your feelings or are you emotionally feel about the company. Disney does not care about backlash they care about making money. Consider the backlash you're talking about is not even about something present in the current game. Also consider that the game still sold millions of units regardless of the backlash. Also remember that Disney was very much okay with this in the first place. So this idea of trying to pretend that Disney is not going to put up with some negative backlash is utterly hilarious did you forget who gave them this license? 😂😂😂 Disney handed Electronic Arts this license for the exact reason you're seeing this series hit number one. Money. Trust me Disney doesn't give a crap about the backlash all they care about is getting some good sweet sales. I don't believe Disney is it isn't regarding this I believe they were fully aware of the micro transactions that were going to exist inside of this game if anything that was probably one of the biggest reasons they chose this publisher. I mean I want you to ironically consider that you're using the first Battlefront as a Target as to what they should be surpassing so did you just ignore that Electronic Arts made that other Battlefront game? And you seriously think Disney's walking away from that? 😂😂😂 28514; Yeaaaa no. They care about money, not your feelings.
“this has and will always be about money.” It WILL always be about the money if you are the corporate stooges and the shareholders. But looking at gamer’s point of view, does this benefit us? This is what’s wrong with the AAA gaming industry right now. They put the $ infront of the satisfaction of the gamers.
Will never happen. It is single player, and cannot be monetized. Sorry but those days are over with the current human waste Andrew Wilson in the CEO office for EA. The man is destroying gaming. Either EA will burn down, or they will fire him.
Andrew Wilson. The embodiment of the real life’s Devil, along with the human trash Ajit Pai.
Nope,not as long as EA is involved. EA choices profit over quality. EA doesn't care if MTs destroy the progression and balance of their mp games, look at Battlefront 2. Also, EA,doesn't have much faith in single player games, they canceled Visceral's Star Wars game for being a linear singleplayer title. EA has a studio fit for RPG development. However, EA has forced BioWare to alter their development practices, even if it diminishes the quality of the game the studio is creating.
With EA at its current state it will be filled with Microtransactions and a broken unplayable mess.
NOT as an mmo, please.
Once EA doesn't have control then hell yeah!
Give it a reboot and make it canon
Who trusts EA with such a property? If they could screw up Battlefield you know they’d do the same with other Star Wars subseries. I say some other publisher should be allowed to produce Star Wars properties just like how multiple publishers are handling Marvel properties
A couple million people do if you consider Star Wars Battlefront moved over 15 million units... That's not really something that just happens on accident.
It’s a Star Wars game of course it’s going to sell well. I’m talking in regards to its critical reception. Just compare the Metascore that the original Battlefront series had with its reboot series. Star Wars : Battlefront - 82 Star Wars: Battlefront 2 - 84 Reboot Star Wars: Battlefront - 73 Reboot Star Wars: Battlefront 2 - 68 Whatever fondness people would have for both Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games would probably be disappointing with modern non-MMO installments.
BioWare is already confirmed it to be working on a Star Wars game.
The reason why i wouldn't want this ? two words, Electronic Arts. I wouldn't trust them with any game series.
Knights of the Loot Crate Republic? No thanks. I'm assuming the author isn't up on current events.
Drop the cartoony, cgi *pop' looking Frostbite engine. Something that can closer resemble the original visual style
Yes, please A fresh developer and team who loved the original game. This all, however, would require EA to not screw it over with loot boxes and "games as a service" online focus junk.
Sorry but i will never buy a game from EA , i don't care about titan fall or anthem or any of the other crap they got IM DONE ALSO IM DONE WITH ACTIVATION
But also as a movie too!
No. They fucked up Battlefront. They screwed up Mass Effect. I would be okay with Obsidian make Kotor 3, however.
Lol Yet those games still went on to sell millions of units. I mean you might want someone else to work on Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic but it is very likely BioWare is already working on it as their confirmed to be working on the Star Wars game for quite a while now.
Asking for too much. EA will turn it into a open world,GaaS monster. Its in Disney court now.
Not by EA.
These are my favourite games, and it terrifies me to think of EA handling them.
