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.

Forget fortnite, the monster mess of pubg is coming to ps4 December.....8th? It is as glitchy as anything but still the best battle royale game on console

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 😉

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.

Anyone losing their stuff about black ops coming out? Cannot wait for blackout mode. I just can't get enough of battle royale modes.

Cod has been dead since b ops1 mw2 times

I thought ww2 would bring it back but that failed

Now there jumping on the br mode. which will prob end pubg. but can't see it outlasting fortnight

The thing about fortnite is it’s an aggressive building sim. So that’s cool and all but just not for everybody. I think pubg will slip away from great heights but maintain a solid fan base and while it’s one of the best games I’ve ever played in my life, it’s one of the worst games I’ve played in my life. They have terrible issues with cheating and stability and only a year on they’re only now talking about fixing it. On top of that, their answer has been more maps.

While I don’t mind more maps, it just splits the dodgy servers even further apart and let’s be honest, the second map was terrible. You are right, cod has dropped it’s quality and after black ops 1 there has been little interest for me. But it never lost it’s excellent shooting mechanics. Blackout is pubg free of issues with great shooting mechanics.

I really don’t think br modes are a fad- I think they’re the future of top ended games and live streaming which is growing bigger and bigger. My personal hope is that they include bots in this one. I have a manic schedule and can’t commit the time to getting at all good at shooters these days. Would love me a little bot on bot action offline. And yes, I meant that to sound unsavory 🤪

If anyone wants to squad up feel free to add me, gamertag is DecimusUK (xbox)

It may be a bad decision as i am getting worse at shooters with age

i really liked pubg, but they don't seem to be adding stuff on it to keep me wanting to play.

i think once black ops comes out the player count will go down for pubg.

fortnight is constantly updating and is really smooth although i don't play it (have done)

I hear your pain. Age is so bad on the reflexes. Still waiting for my first chicken dinner. My tag is “master robi wan” if anyone else wants to add up on Xbox for some pubg shenanigans. I warn you though guys- I’m beyond cursed in this game and it’s quite likely what wins you have gotten will be nullified by teaming up with me.

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.
