    It's interesting, the sizzle reel for Lucasfilm games was almost all EA stuff which leads me to believe they may still be working with them? I do hope we get atleast one more Fallen Order

    i expect that EA will still continue to make Star Wars games yeah, we'll likely see Fallen Order 2 and Battlefront 3 at least. but they no longer have sole rights to make Star Wars games and that can only be a good thing.

    EA's license was for 10 years and was signed back in 2013, so they still have time to put out more Star Wars games.

    Also I imagine the new paradigm is no more exclusivity deals, so if EA wants to make another Star Wars game after 2023, they can go through the same process Bethesda and Ubisoft did.

    I for one cannot get behind these two tone controllers with white backs. It's an aesthetic choice that I think looks okay but I don't feel interested in buying. Maybe I should thank them, I usually buy all the controllers...

    I like it for the Blue one but don't for the red oddly enough.

    I think the Xbox Design Lab may come back for the new controllers which would be nice.

    Scuttlebutt is that EA's current management isn't 100% happy with the deal they've been stuck with. Losing exclusivity would take the pressure off and allow them to take the time to make intelligent games from the ground up rather than, say, shoehorning it into Battlefront (or whatever the name is). Or at least that's the theory.

    Battlefront wasn't them shoehorning the IP into the Battlefield series/format, it was a revival of a older series of Star Wars games.

    its funny, i'm the exact opposite. i didn't like it on the Blue controller, but i don't mind it so much on the Red one. and they'd said that Design Lab will return later this year with the new controllers, its just a matter of when.

    I'd be okay with the white backed controllers if they had white buttons and triggers to match, but as is the three colors plus the 4 colored face buttons just looks busy to my eyes

    Maybe then people will finally be able to get the Xbox 360-style two-tone (white/light grey) controllers some were expecting to be bundled with the Series S. :winky:

    Still, they won't be locked into doing Battlewhatever and can actually do what they feel would perform best. Or so the theory goes.

    When are the Yakuza remasters coming to Game Pass? I know they aren't getting Kawami-style UwU upgrades but these have been great downtime pickups.

    Just make a full game of pocket circuit, hostess club, and majima construction games (with the catfight club as a 10 hour substory).

    Can't wait for there to be a mold for clear front panel for the series x controllers.

    On a basic level Ubisoft produces games at a consistent click, so at the very least we will get more games regularly

    Also I have to imagine they’re racing to make a Mandalorian lego game. A lego baby yoda would basically print money

    They've already got that covered.

  • SynthesisSynthesis Honda Today! Registered User regular
    I would presume that would be a lot less true for a non-tangible video game Baby Yoda (it doesn't seem like the character suddenly made BF2 much more popular, and that's a near-perfect recreation of the character I assume), than actual legos.

    They also coming to Steam on those same days.

    Ubisoft is absolutely using the Scott Pilgrim game re-release for brownie points after all the sex crimes their higher ups committed.

    I feel guilty but I did buy the vinyl, and I'll probably end up with the digital copy of the game. I love the music and game too much to pass up, other than that I've been doing good avoiding ubisoft stuff tho.

    Makes me laugh gamers are so stoked EA gas "lost" the star wars license only for equally shitty companies like Ubi immediately hop in... Like it's that much better?

    To be fair the Scott Pilgrim game has a sizable cult following that's been mourning the game's loss for years now.

    Plus Ubi pretty thoroughly cleaned house as of two months ago. They even finally got rid of Michel Ansel, even though he was best buds with the CEO.

    Hey torchlight 3 is on console gamepass. Feeling smart I didn't buy that game in any form!

    And yeah I'm amused that Ubisoft is literally doing an ubisoft star wars game. I mean I'll play it, I'll just make sure to not play another ubi open world game for about a year leading up to it.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    They call this type of update "Backwards Compatibility Plus" where the code can kinda recognize when it's running on new consoles. Similar to how Cyberpunk works where it's very clearly the scaled back versions with high frames and resolution unlocked. A proper next gen version would probably have nicer textures.

    Interesting that Series S and PS5 are missing the quality mode...

    Yeah, DF noted that suddenly all those games on Xbox One X (and PSFro) that had high-resolution modes with uncapped framerates (like DOA6) suddenly made perfect sense on the new hardware. I'm wishing FFXV had that feature, but sadly no.

    Nice that it got this small-ish patch. At the start of Xbox One and Playstation 4, they would've just sold the game to us again, Tomb Raider style. :biggrin:

    Playing Dead Space for the first time since it came out. It looks surprisingly good still. Older obv but sharp. That's odd because Evil Within looks like a muddy mess.

    Yeah, came to it for the first time just a few weeks ago, and without any nostalgia it still looked fine. Probably helped that they basically never show you someone's face close up, and everything's all space zombies and industrial corridors.

    News from Bungie:
    https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/50006
    DUST AND ECHOES
    Almost nine years ago, stats and files from our previous franchise, Halo, stopped getting updated on Bungie.net. Since then, all stats, files, and other data from Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach have lived on in remembrance at halo.bungie.net.

    On February 9, the halo.bungie.net website will be taken offline permanently. Everyone is welcome to save their stats and files, however they can, if they'd like to save anything. Please keep in mind that our News articles, Forums, and Groups were imported into the current version of Bungie.net back in 2013.

    Only got a couple more weeks if you ever wanna look at your old file share and stats ever again
    Here was my old Reach man:

    I just saved a bunch of game history for myself. Apparently I spent my 18th birthday playing halo 3 all night which sounds about right. I was shocked it had Halo 2 stats as well, unfortunately i lost my original account so the oldest game recorded was 2006. Still, impressive. Scrolling through the pages I was struck by how much I loved and miss those games. Good times.

    Soo....if you don't mind buying from Eneba, you can pick up 4 months of Game Pass Ultimate by converting a year of EA Play to an existing subscription, for $24.22.

    A year of EA Play by itself could make a pretty good gift for any sports franchise friends too.
