Hi all, recently bought FIFA 19, although have played every FIFA since 05, looking for a pro club (no greedy players please) 82st, however most of my gameplay is about linking up, etc. Please reply to this post if interested. I also have a mic, and Scottish.

Was talking to a Rep in ea yesterday at a convention in the rds I was doing and he said a full battlefield bad company remake was nearly tagged on to battlefield v in some form and that it's pretty close to being ready. He said ea are doing everything to get in the good books of people at the moment. Firestorm is looking to be excellent and strangely enough fallout's disasterous online debacle might have wide reaching effects on single player games. As in companies might be reconsidering online only games. Nice guy took my abuse about working for the devil really well. He might have been just spoofing but it seemed genuine enough.

I wouldn't trust anything EA says, ever. They've shown time and time again, they don't care about the community and only care about making money. The games they release are broken, unfinished and filled with microtransactions.

EA would be better off rebranding entirely, after firing all of the suits in the company and disbanding the board of directors.

It doesn't help that when EA feel threatend by a development team(like Westwood for example) they buy them out then liquidate them. They've done this with a number of up and coming developers.

Spot on hsf, was fairly certain you’d reply on this thread mate. It was refreshing to hear a little criticism for the company as a whole- (he really tore battlefront 1 and 2 apart as well as battlefield 1) It’s more that I’d love a bad company remake to pop out of nowhere. The hours I put into that game were unreal and bad company 2 is for me the best online shooter. We were talking about battle royale modes and how blackout kinda pulled the rug from under them despite it actually being disappointing and I just said all I wanted in life was an offline pubg with bots- that’s when he mentioned fallout and how relying on players to drive a game forward instead of programming ai might be a grave misstep for developers going forward. I very much doubt he’s any say in what they do but it was an interesting conversation.

Yeah I see "EA" and I immediately get triggered lol.

What he says is true about it being a grave mistake to focus solely on multiplayer aspects. This has forced the industry into the state that is now, which is a fudging mess to say the least. Games are being released unfinished with the laughable concept of "it's a live service game" or an "Early Access" game.
Microtransactions(MTX) have changed the face of the industry, promting it to become a money gobbling monster that seems to always be hungry. This is one of the reasons I've been so critical of FIFA's FUT in recent years as it relies heavily on MTX, with theories even going as far as to say that the game is coded to make you want to purchase points to improve your team, by silently decreasing your player stats(meaning they still show as 84 but they're actually 80 for example), as well as the difficulty randomly upping its self in the games vs AI's. Whether that's truth or fiction is debatable, but I really wouldn't put it past them.

EA seemed to take it that step too far with Battlefront 2 though, they tied the progression to loot boxes, which sent the fanbase into a frenzy and prompting last minute changes to the game, plus a complete rework of the progression system after the game went live.

I must give props to DICE though, they have really tried hard to make Battlefront 2 what it was intended to be in the fans eyes, even though EA decimated their development team from 150 devs to less than 20(it's recently just been given a bump to about 45 devs), removed nearly all of their budget and shunned almost every idea put forward. Ben "F8RGE" Walke has been a revalation since being put in charge of the development and a lot of the credit should go to him. It's just a real shame that they can't pump out the content that the fanbase craves, and that EA and Disney got this game off to such a bad start, it truely could have been a wonderful game and I'm not even a fan of Star Wars.

ARK: Survival Evolved pumping out a 14.3GB update. Now that's an update lads.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 Nov 2018 15:48:41
And a further 12.8 GB update holy cow.

{Ed001's Note - that is bigger than most games in total.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2018 08:22:31
Indeed, 27.1GB worth of updates, never seen an update that big before, it was a 2 part content patch for the new DLC Extinction.

{Ed001's Note - I hate huge patches they take so long to download it is frustrating. It would be nice if someone would actually release a finished game instead of a beta these days. Then we could actually play the game straight away instead of having to download patches from the beginning!}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2018 02:19:21
I agree for the most part Ed, but with some games like ARK, they were actually finished on release. They just decided to add more such as the Abberration DLC(new map, new creatures, new weapons and mechanics) in 2017 and the Extinction DLC with these latest patches.

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't meaning it to refer to ARK as such, just in general, it annoys me paying such a huge amount of money for unfinished work.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2018 03:56:37
Yeah most games will be released with the intention of finishing with DLC.
I feel the exact same way about Microtransactions and most annual release games.

{Ed001's Note - until people stop paying for them though they will never end. They are even creeping into other games, giving you extra add ons you can buy through microtransactions. It is annoying.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol fallout 76 just launched with a 51gb day 1 patch

{Ed001's Note - holy! That is a huge patch.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2018 07:26:54
Was it really that broken on release?!

{Ed001's Note - either that or they just forgot to put anything on the disc...}

Happy the forest on ps4 days guys. 4 years I've waited for this game. Even held off playing red dead so I could actually get a little time to play it this week. I'm sure I've made the right decision 😉

Believable0 Unbelievable0

10 Nov 2018 14:28:10
I made the wrong decision. 4 years wait for a game that has aged 4 years. Far better alternatives out there. Still though, it’s pretty to look at. Ho hum, back to work aoe.

03 Nov 2018 08:04:05
Everyone enjoying red dead redemption 2?

{Ed001's Note - I am so jealous, I really want to be playing it.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Nov 2018 13:34:44
It's good Ed! Very good! I was on it for 3 hours last night and I didn't even do one mission lol. Just good riding about, seeing who's about and what you can find. Possibly the goat for me.

{Ed001's Note - I will have to wait until after Xmas to afford it, unless I get lucky and someone gets it for me as a prezzie. Mind I still haven't finished with Skyrim or Fallout 4 yet!}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Nov 2018 13:48:52
Fallout 4 in my top 5 as well mate. Class game. Haven't tried Skyrim though unfortunately.

{Ed001's Note - I absolutely love Skyrim, it is still my favourite game ever. I have it on PS3, PS4 and PC, I love it that much.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Nov 2018 14:05:38
Haha! That's a good endorsement. Might give it a go next year, got too much to get through. Red dead, then fallout 76, then I'm going to do assassin's Creed odessey. Then might try that.

{Ed001's Note - it is probably best on PC, because of all the mods you can add, but it is fantastic on console as well and you will be glad you got it. I have to say, I am not a big fan of the AC games. Ed007 loves them, but I find the combat is abysmal and the movement is terrible. To me they are just poor cousins of the likes of RDR, FO and Skyrim.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Nov 2018 14:19:53
They went stale, but the last one was good. The only problem is the missions get repetitive. I usually give up before I finish it haha

{Ed001's Note - I gave up on them a long time ago, thought they were good until I played Skyrim and then I realised just how far behind that they are.}

Has anyone got a Nintendo switch? Would you recommend for there is anyone. I'm thinking of getting my son one for Christmas. He's only 4 so I was wondering if there are any games for his age range? Cheers

Nintendo are traditionally the best for younger gamers, but it is a machine with a lot of moving parts and it is quite breakable especially as a handheld. You might be better off picking up a second hand 360 or a wii and a shed load of friendly titles at next to nothing. As a console itself, it’s great fun. I went to Italy recently and it was a great companion with fifa 18 and fortnite. Not to mention my wife stealing away with Zelda when I wasn’t looking. Mario kart and Mario odyssey would be best suited for him imo. (At least wait until he’s 10 before popping the excellent doom into the machine 😉) hope this helps.

Thanks mate. Part of the reason for getting him one is for me to play it aswell have.

hi Ed,
Just wondering if the games have to be played by this Sunday or next Sunday, basically when is the deadline to play matches

{Ed007's Note - It was supposed to be this Sunday but since I've been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days and to let people get sorted with things I can change it......

just wanted to know if especially the career mode has improved this year?

Hi Mark
I have also bought WWE games for the few years and have been fed up with the lack of progress in the games. I have heard a lot of good things about the game this year with new fun game modes and a better Universe mode. Going back to Career Mode though, This year they have apparently made an indies wrestling brand where you can make a name for yourself before going to WWE. I will be getting the game later this year as I probably wouldn’t play it now anyway with Fifa just coming out. I too hope that the Career mode will be better and longer this year

just managed to get myself into division 3.

im a decent player, not a great one, but the new division rivals is currently more competitive than the weekend league. the weekday games used to be relaxing, some tough games here and there but some fun games here and there too. i was never really worried about the results as the division would just refresh itself after 10 games (of after winning the title/getting relegated), and u get rewarded after that even when u get relegated.

i welcome the idea of division rivals, but removal of other 'fun' modes has really reduced my playing time. atleast tournaments should still be there, don't know why we nothing other than division rivals as an online mode outside of weekend league.

thoughts on this anyone?
