    Don't be fooled. They're trying to lure people into buying it, and they'll re-enable the microtransactions later, exactly as they say they will.

    Hopefully more like Overwatch.

    I can't help but say that maybe this is not something we should talk about on here.

    It is a team based first person shooter based on the Star Wars Galaxy. Has a topic ever been more Icrontic?

  • EA, what do you have against Star Wars fans?

    First I want to say that I dig much of what EA has done since the release of the first Battlefront. Some multiplayer games shipped complete without the need for $29 "expansions" or a "season pass". The $5 a month Origin access deal is one of the best in all of gaming. The Origin application is vastly superior to Steam.

    It's as if EA finally got the memo... then this happens... Do you know how many nerds you have to piss off to have the most down-voted comment in Reddit history?

    I'm fine with loot crates for non essential cosmetic elements. A new skin, hat, or emote... all fine with me and I think Overwatch has employed that system perfectly. I can tip the developer, but I don't have to. It costs me nothing in gameplay to not have that loot, but hey, I wanted that bitchin Zarya Skin so I paid a couple bucks for some extra loot. That's all well and good, but when the loot is required for a competitive advantage?? When it's required to unlock core game features?? Come on EA... Please be kind to Star Wars fans. We need that extra change for Star Wars POP! figures and vintage Kenner stuff.

  • Re: is it Ok to put differnt Ram Speed in the motherborad??

    It will run at the slower speed. What are you running that requires 32GB at any given time? Usually would need to be doing a couple virtual machines, or maybe some really heavy RAW photo work, or serious video editing to get any benefit. 16GB is still plenty for a performance gaming PC.

  • Re: Nintendo bringing back NES Classic in 2018 - aka Nintendo decides it enjoys making money....

    The Genesis version of Mortal Kombat had blood. Flawless victory.
