Nerd Reactor's Cory on why fans should boycott EA's Battlefront.
I already have... No campaign was enough for me Battlefront had a ton of potential
I also boycotted it, No space battles? No clone wars? (Say what you want about the movies but the battles were awesome) No single player? it has less content then the previous games.
There's a lot you can do single player Fighter Squadron. Ever heard about it? What's the difference? Because the background scene isn't black with stars?
I only bought it because of the PSN cashback promotion but I regret supporting this horrible business model. It's fun but it's definitely not worth 60 bucks.
@yarbie1000 I think the point he's trying to get at is that there is NO classic DeathStar trench run or battle over endor type space battles. Which (as I've said in a previous post) will probably be one of the DLC packs, for which EA, will be asking money for and IMO just wrong.
Luckily I've bought it on Pc, PS4 and XBOX One to make up the shortfall...you're welcome
It has less content than normal games...than indies....than pacman
I don't want a campaign, I want more maps.
@Revvin I highly doubt that. And, if so, congratulations! You bought half a game, three times over. So many people are impressed.
@SlapHappyJesus Yes I have, I love Star Wars, love what DICE has done with Battlefront and have friends on all three systems
EVERYONE should boycott this, or at least get a refund. They've hidden over 50% of the game behind a DLC paywall, it's disgusting. And the only reason this will succeed, is because people will buy this game because of the name and that's it. By the time they realize how shallow and boring the game is and are done with it, EA will have made their money and be laughing.
Maybe, just maybe, this game will succeed because people enjoy it? How dare they release a game with 15 maps and 10 game modes, then pledge to support it post launch!! Lol seriously listen to yourself. If you don't like the game or don't want to play it fine, but don't act like DICE owes you more when you have a choice to buy or not buy their product. That's the real disgusting part.
this game just lacks as a basic shooter to start with. no in game mic system,no clan support, no ladders, and 2 whole ppl cqn group together lol wow. sick to death of giving DICE qnother chance. after mirrors edge 2 ill never buy another game of theres. and why do developers insist on overtheshoulder 3rd person view? that shit is horrible and ruined socom yet they still do it and fucked this game up with it as well.
Yeah because DICE always makes the best Campaigns... No loss at all having no SP considering the other 2 games didn't have a campaign either. Galactic Conquest is NOT a campaign it's just a MP map with bots on.
everyone should boycott COD, they hide over 50% of the game behind a DLC wall and they charge the same thing. Oh wait, its ok for COD to do it, but any other game might as well beat the door down right. Not to mention COD devs laugh every year because all they do is apply a skin pack and re-release it every year.
@Shadowking Who said it was ok with COD ? Just because we are Battlefront fans it doesn't mean we like and play COD too you know.
@SegaGamer Think he was supposed to reply to the comment above.
Yeah. I have no use for this trash. Terrible, terrible, greedy business model. Much better games to buy, for sure. F*** em'.
I'm gonna go enjoy Battlefront Enjoy your boycott
Pretty much. Let the Internet bitch about everything and enjoy the game. It's goood
It's okay if you enjoy battlefield. Despite the claims by dice that's it's not a reskin of Battlefield. It definitely feels like one. I don't blame people for boycotting it. Especially considering the ultimate lack of content that they get for $60. A Naughty Dog spokesperson or whoever said that gamers should pay for good content. I agree with that too. What we don't see is developers supplying that good content to pay for. In my opinion $60 for Battlefront is too much. It's online only and disappears once EA decides they don't want to keep the servers up.
@ above, the BFII servers lasted 9 years before they went down, that's a great run. There's no reason to doubt the longevity of the series.
Me too. About to log back on and play the game because it's awesome. It's like I woke up in bizzarro world or something. If you love Star Wars, then you will love this game. It really is fun as hell.
I have boycotted it already....until they bundle it with all the DLC.I will pick it up
That's a bit of an oxymoron. Star Wars fan. Boycott a Star Wars game. hmmm...
I don't think oxymoron means what you think it means. "Microsoft Works" is an oxymoron because there is a product CALLED Microsoft Works...
I see a split with gamers with this game. Some find it fun, some don't. But wait... Isn't that with every game? Buy what you want. Most of the people are b*tching on the internet are going to buy it anyway. Like they do COD. I'm enjoying it though.
Anyone remember the games kotor or jedi outcast series ? Man where the heck are those cause they kicked ass
I will boycott it just like I boycott all of EA's games and services. After the effect they have had destroying companies, milking gamers, repeating the same games with new tweaks and buying up licenses where they can monopolize and control what can be made or only by them, I have not looked back. We all know EA could have made an awesome star wars game. But instead, they made a cash register to collect money.by again, buying a license. Gamer's have cut EA some slack by eating those dangling carrots in their face like EA access. But I will never cut them slack as I have known their intentions for years.
The game is fun, I play it with my buddies and we have a blast (no pun intended) maybe if people stopped whining about it and just tried to enjoy it for what it was they would have a more fun time.
I enjoyed it for the first 8 hours. Then it got boring due to a SEVERE lack of content
Me and my friends put around 20 hours into it (not altogether) and we haven't even touched missions and survival
THIS!!!!! I'm happy with the game, plenty to do in it. More playing, less whining....Or if you feel it is not worth your money, there are PLENTY of other games to play. Move on and lt people choose what they want to enjoy without being 'told' how we are being 'taken advantage off.
thats what gamefly is for
Already boycott, but sad thing is that people will buy it anyway. It's look fun, but missing content like that. That's piss me off.
Don't worry, I boycott Electronic Arts since almost a decade already.
And I see its made a lot of difference to sales at EA.
For you, this was the best reply you ever read. But for me...it was Tuesday.
Bubs for funny Hoffman XD.
My son's enjoying it, that's all that matters.
The world is aware that as gamers way back when on the original Playstation we used to pay £50 just for a 10 hour single player game and that was it, no extras, no multiplayer, nothing. No one moaned or complained about it, just excepted it. As time as gone on not only as gamers do we expect to pay less for games but we also expect more for that money whereas devs overheads continue to increase meaning the business model has to reflect this. A video games should be based on one thing, fun. It's the whole point of gaming, to have fun and thats how you should base the value of the game, not on what you get in the box but how much YOU get out of it. NO ONE is forced to buy any game or any DLC.
I don't expect games to cost less, i expect to get a full game at launch. If you think stuff like DLC is extra content, then you are very naive. I would bet my house that if this was the PS2 days, or if DLC wasn't available on consoles, we would have every bit of DLC for this game available on the disc at launch.
i am disappointed that there was no campaign, but i find myself playing battles and survival quite a bit more then the multiplayer at the moment, i dont hate the online right now im just having fun playing vs the AI right now. not really mad that there is no campaign as they did announce that from the start, so you knew that ahead of time. Am i pissed that DLC is 49.99, yes who not be, but unfortunately thats the way AAA titles are now, so you can either suck it up or just dont buy it or play it. As much as we complain about it, you think if any changes were going to happen they would have by now. Plus i think people are still comparing swbf way to much to swbf2. one thing people need to understand is that this is a reboot of the series with some stuff from the movie releasing next month otherwise it would have been called swbf3.
What I don't understand is people that want to or are trying to boycott the game if you bought the game you failed already ,they already have your money , doesn't matter what's next because now they know that even if you Hate the game or knew they cut content you still BOUGHT IT!!!!!!!!
It's very simple , battlefront 3 was suppose to be bigger and better than battlefront 2. They fucked it up
I pre ordered it immediately after the beta, the most Ultimate Edition I could because its just fun, so have a great time over in boycott land. I wish I could give them another $60 for the game, its simply just good old fun.
I wouldn't even consider my decision not to buy the game a boycott. I just flat out have no interest in mediocrity that has the majority of its content behind a paywall. My decision to not buy the game is in my opinion, common sense. That said, those who do purchase it and enjoy it, then all the power to you, it is after all up to everyones decision. I only feel sorry for those who spend the money and then are angry about it. If you keep getting angry, smarten up. If you're having fun, keep at it. If you have no desire to even consider the game, don't give them the money.
I would love this game to get boycotted, but its just not going to happen. There are WAY TOO MANY people that have already pre-ordered everything this game has to offer in the coming days, months, and years. This game may look good, but that is where it stops. If only we lived in a world where everyone doesn't settle. Sadly that isn't the case.
I am. Will it make a difference though? sadly not.
Boycott? Done. No SPC? No money from me.
A Star Wars game with no campaign. That is a joke.
I agree with many of players: its very good looking game with good music and many modes. And additionaly tons of DLCs. After beat not many has changed and sometimes its like playing BF4. There is no campaign and that one of worts decisions. I prefer to have a Sp and aditionaly MP with few but good modes. This is like to Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be.
I'm just Guna wait till ea access
Changed my purchase to a rental as I will only likely play the MP for 8 hours. Saved me a **** ton of money
Lol people r defending this bs game the game has 11 weapons and its marketed like its a great fps w/ 11 weapons no lol. dice should be ashamed at the underwhelming product theyve released. But u fanboys still support it because u like dice games and accept this overpriceed bs. Thinik of it like this i like pizza but if domino's sells me 2/3rd of a pizza at full price i have the right 2 say dominos suks. this why the gaming comunity is treated like rich kids who will accept any game with a big name because when a bad/unfinished/underwhelming product is released not enough ppl call these devs out on thier underwhelming products. Seriously 11weapons dice should be ashamed
omg the weapons are a joke. best weapon in the game is a pistol thqt can oneshot you from across the map and you unlock it when you hit lvl50 which i assume is the max lvl (until the dlc of course) and about 1/3 of the players are using it now which means they are max lvl. wtf what kinda rank pacing is that shit??? the game hasnt been out a week. lol what a fucking joke
I bought it for my sons 9th birthday tomorrow . I dont let him play online shooters cause mostly rated M. Anyone think atleast the kids will like battlefront ? Cause the grown men are whining like spoiled children so idk
My god what a bunch of whiners.This isn't the first and won't be the last game to have a bunch of content behind a dlc pay wall.Its modern gaming and it isn't going to change.If your a star wars fan you will love this game I do,give it a go at a friends or rent it AND ACTUALLY PLAY IT,you will end up loving it and then you can get off the hate band wagon that a lot of spoilt nerds are on."no single player campaign! " they stated that from the beginning. "not enough maps" could of been a few more but there are 12 maps at different locations set a cross 4 planets across the 9 multi player modes then another planet location coming for free coming in a few weeks.Boycott the game?what?its a game grow up.if you don't want it don't buy it but to campaign to boycott the game jesus get a grip lol.
