I sure hope it's to-scale.

Actually, and in all honesty Matt, no.  :-\

For me that argument would be that FC had no real competition...  It was what it was, and no game save for much later EAW compared.  This...  I'd rather just play COD or Titanfall.   :-X

It's purdy though, and as customizing inspiration goes, it's kinda like Force Commander. :)

It made me want to make boxes.  Just random boxes.

It is very much like Force Commander in that it was greatly hyped, and a major letdown ultimately.  :P

OK, so I got BF this weekend, and the kids got COD.  Nice way to compare/contrast.

I gotta say, I feel more to the negative now on BF...  Here's my list of beefs, which kind of reinforce the above ones.

-Characters/classes/weapons are not nearly upgradeable enough.  If you're familiar with COD, you can beef up your weapons and your character with different abilities, and while you can do that in BF, you can't do it enough.  They really needed to invent some new weapons for this game, and not hem themselves in on what is shown in the films only.  I mean they're sending you out with things like a Jawa ion gun and things.  It's silly that they didn't get creative and just pulled from the universe's existing weapons.  Hell, delve into the EU if you have to, but move out of the movies, and make them customizable!  Different sites, invent suppressors, etc.  Make it work.

And character classes...  I want more than just a guy with a jetpack.  I want faster guys, stronger (IE: "tanks") guys like wookiees, etc.  Make scout classes, scout sniper classes, tech/demo classes, infantry, heavy infantry, etc., etc.  They kinda do it, but half-assed.  Not nearly as complex/layered as other games (COD, basically).  Add in some innovation and they could've made this Star Wars-focused and not just a skin to an existing game like COD or BF.

-Maps...  biggest complaint, easily, is lack of content/environments.  You have a plethora of EU to dip into.  You have a ton of amazing worlds, and even stations/ships to pick from that you could've built your maps on.  You didn't even do a friggin' storyline/SP to this game, so why would you not do things like make a map of the Death Star?  Other  games give a LOT more in the initial launch.  I get the DLC is coming, but you're gonna basically repay for this game when it's available and that just flat out blows.  They didn't deliver nearly enough maps.

-Vehicle Combat...  Feels fairly worthless and unbalanced IMO, but maybe that's just me.  Just didn't hold much appeal after one or two rounds of it, and I went right back to ground combat.

Basically it's GORGEOUS, and it's Star Wars, so there's this part of it that I inherently enjoy.  That said, if you've not bought this, I'd say don't.  It's over-hyped by a mile and a half to me. 

At the same time, the kids got COD...  I enjoyed it much more.  I may not be as young as I used to be and COD is harder and harder to play MP, but the SP was fun and the MP I seemed to get back into well enough.  My K/D is ****, but it's **** in BF too and there's less strategy in BF I found.  At least I could find a groove in COD.  BF was all run/gun mostly, and you don't even run as quickly with any character change.  ::)

I'm wishing I'd waited on BF, but I'll live.  First game I've bought in ages.  I'll play it, but at this point I feel like it's mostly for inspiration to make cargo boxes and stuff I see around me.  It REALLY is pretty.  It's got immersive (and LARGE) environments to explore.  But you're in a FPS, so you're getting tore up while you stare at the butterflies.  I've found fun with BF, but I'd definitely have waited knowing what I know now.

I say never say never, but I don't think they'd do it.  There's possibly something prohibiting it too even.  Lucas is protective in his own way, so I could see that actually.

There is pretty fertile ground for them to do film after film after film though too.  Especially if writing over EU material's obviously not an issue too.  I don't see it, personally, but that's me.

Indeed Jess, awesome score.  :)  Kylo looks AMAZING to me.  Leia too.

Besides her, I want at least 2 of each.  :-X

LOL @ Jesse.  I knew that was coming. :)

I picked up quite a few TFA 4" figures for BOGO last week at Dollar General...  Most stores were picked clean but one out of the way store had some, and another had (oddly) 3 figures, 2 of which were a stormie and flametrooper.  As figures I can ultimately articulate easily enough that was cool.

The other store had a Finn/Rey which I'd not bought (no real interest) but for $4, sure!  Rey's pack is slick, and Finn, besides articulation, is nice.

Star Wars is so hot this year, I wouldn't count on many great deals.  No clue why Dollar General went zany with a BOGO when they weren't keeping things in stock well anyway, but hey, it worked.

Knew Glenn was alive. :).  Knew he was under the Dumpster too.  Just glad they finally got to showing it all.

I agree with you McMetal, on the church.  I think it's just a result of the fire and truck hitting it. 

I found the faith discussion then a church toppling your safety wall kind of ironic.

Good lord.  Thanks Paul.

My buddy's in WDW and they didn't have it either. :-\

No problem, I had it saved anyway for myself.  I need to get the boys some controllers and I need a recharge kit so i figured I'd hang onto the story otherwise I'll forget.

Here you go:

I played the BF Beta, and I had a pretty good time in it...  So I'm picking it up this weekend sometime, probably at BB if they aren't sold out.  Visually, totally agree with Justin that it's stunning to look at.  The Sullust map was a blast just to look at.  I've had ample customizing inspiration playing it.  Hell, they even narfed my idea of mesh/netting over landing pads!  I think that's on Tatooine's map or Hoth.

Anyway though yeah, I loved what I saw/played for the most part.  My only gripes are:

-Too few maps...  They won't have more till Jakku and then some downloadable next year.  That's kinda ****** given how many maps you get with a COD or HALO game.  No reason NOT to give you more...  Why not some random stuff ya know?

-Weapons are too similar...  COD, HALO, etc., pretty much all have this mapped out to perfection, and yet Battlefront, for reasons nobody can explain that I've seen, has just basically one weapon after the next that are all fairly equal/similar.  I'd have liked to have seen a broader diversity of what the gear does.

Now I've heard the BF designers wanted the game to be more "friendly" to casual gamers...  Going into MP for a lot of FPS games can basically leave you feeling pretty deterred if you don't play a LOT.  Not to mention guys who hack their stuff and basically cheat, on top of the people who are just so insanely lifeless they're amazingly good at headshotting everyone without much effort.  :P  I get BF wanting to be a little more user friendly, but you HAVE to have weapon diversity to cater to the different style of gamer.

It doesn't seem like you can boost your character's speed much, and things like that.  I also am not a fan of the inability to drop to the ground...  Just little differences.

I don't have a ton of time to play FPS games, but the last one I played completely (Titanfall) is SOOOOO well done that I'd have liked to have seen them attempt to include some of the weapon classes and character classes mixed into the Star Wars universe, from that game.  I think as a basic FPS game then BF sort of may trail behind the others.  As a Star Wars experience FPS, obviously it has no equal so it has inherent enjoyment.  How long will people stick to that though?

I've not played a COD game for a couple years now...  I'm sure I'm out of practice to even be competitive at it, so I'm curious how playing Battlefront will feel since I'm so out of the loop on this stuff.  Might be a little bit better to get some BF fun in before Titanfall2 comes out, and my K/D rate plummets.  :-[

I'd yard-a-pult the dead at the living I think.  It'd be at least a tad unsettling.
