"In fact, the majority of consumers (22%) buy a game based off of an interesting story and 15% buy a game because the price is right."

22% is a majority? Someone didn't pay attention to math in third grade. #18

That headline should read, "Star Wars: Battlefront TRAILER Just a Month Away". As it reads, it makes it appear that the game is a month from release. #14

I stopped buying these games after Patrice Desilets left the company. I knew then that the story would unravel quickly and promptly auger into a big steaming pile of story-telling dung.

And, voila! #3

Personally, I think that remakes in movies and "remasters" in video games generally contribute to a decline in creativity in both media, but a remastered version of the series would be a smart marketing move, especially since "Uncharted 4" has been delayed. #34

I'd be very happy to learn that it's "Silent Hill 2". #49

I played it and finished it this past weekend. Wait for the price drop; the game is certainly not worth $60, in my opinion (my copy is on ebay as we speak so that I can recoup some of the cost). The characterizations are weak and inconsistent and the story is half-baked. If a developer makes a narrative-driven game, they really should make sure that the narrative is written well and provides enough background information and closure to feel like a complete story. I don't want to includ... #4.2.3

I finished the game last weekend and, knowing what I do now, I'd not pay more than $20 for it. The characterizations were weak and the overall story was half-baked. If a developer makes a narrative-driven game, they really should make sure that the narrative is written well. I don't want to include any examples that might be spoilers, but I can say this.

1. I have no idea why some of the characters do what they do. Igraine and the Lord Chancellor are the prime exampl... #37

Complimentary, adj. - given free as a gift or courtesy

If something is complimentary, you don't, by definition, buy it. Poor word usage in the headline. #10

You can't NOT take away from single-player content when you also have multi-player because you have finite resources. Even if a different studio works on the multi-player side, those are still resources you could have devoted to single-player content.

After the debacle that was "Mass Effect 3"--caused in large part by the departure of Drew Karpyshyn during development of "Mass Effect 2"--I expect nothing but more of the same crap we got last time. #9

As a single-player only player, I sure hope that they're not dead--although they do seem to be dying a slow but sure death. #1

A new Star Wars RPG might be a lot of fun--but it definitely should NOT involve Revan and "the rest of the gang". Their story arc is done. Let them go. #13

Wait. So, the guy who's helping design the game (and a Bioware employee) is talking about how great the game looks?

You know what would be setting a good industry standard?

Delivering a game on time, as promised, and without major QA issues, i.e., bugs.

Call me crazy, I know. #6

@FriedGoat and anticlimax:

I guess you guys are right; the women should look realistic.

Because in a game with dragons, demons, and magic, realism is of paramount importance. #2.5

Great news. Maybe they can mod the female characters to look attractive. That would be a refreshing change. #2

I know I'm going to get down votes for this, but here's a suggestion for EA/Bioware:

Instead of "leveraging your brand" to "maximize existing synergies" and "achieve full market saturation" by pumping out sequels like Octo-mom does offspring, how about you take your heads out of your accountants' and marketing teams' asses, hire an honest-to-God creative team of storytellers, and come up with a new IP? I'm pretty sure you can... #33
