    More info coming saturday.


    On one hand, it's star wars. On the other...it's EA. Reviews will have to be good for me to get this one. Chris Avellone supposedly worked on it so maybe the story will be good

    Story Summary: You're a jedi padawan post order 66.

    Also, gimme dark side options.

    I'm certainly intrigued. Beyond that, it's impossible to say, but I'm definitely not feeling particularly hype about it given EA's track record.

    /nuff said

    Edit: also, they've got this entire fuckhuge universe but outside KOTORs and SWTOR, SW games can't dig their way out of the same ~30 year era. Another secret Jedi post Order 66 story. How exciting.

    But stars wars...and Chris Avellone....

    If they don't have a live service/loot boxes/multiplayer, I'll consider it. But reviews would have to wow me.

    To be fair, that is actually a possibility. A slim possibility, but a possibility nonetheless. Respawn has a big meaty dick to swing around after Apex took off. I'm pretty sure they'd be able to more-or-less dictate terms to EA executives for at least a game or two, so if they really wanted to keep the bullshit out, I'm pretty sure they could manage it. If only because EA really needs some good PR around Star Wars games, and to keep Respawn happy and making their biggest-game-in-existence even bigger.

    Remains to be seen, as always, but there's certainly a chance.

    Well, that's underwhelming.

    Still, I won't pass judgement this early.

    Kotaku, specifically Schreier, has reported Fallen Order will supposedly be single player.

    @Agayek that's cool and all, but I don't want anything under EA's banner to succeed. I want the whole fucking thing to crash and burn, and EA releasing successful games like Apex Legends doesn't bode well for their destruction.

    I disagree. I would *love* to see a young, inexperienced Jedi have to contend with a nascent empire and whatever else, lacking the absurdity of TFU's scale of powers. A sort of powered down (but it makes sense because it's a young padawan) Jedi story of him just fighting for survival and barely making it, having to learn new tricks by necessity as he goes.

    I'd buy that.

    Sure, that's fair. I'm just saying there's at least a slim chance that Fallen Order will be able to avoid the bullshit plaguing the modern industry. Whether or not that's enough for you to buy it is up to you.

    I've said before that a single good game is not worth keeping EA alive. I'll say now that no number of good games is worth keeping EA alive. I swear to God, if Fallen Order turns out to be better than KOTOR 3 and Half-Life 3 combined, and Anthem becomes the divine revelation of looter-shooters, and Dragon Age 4 surpasses Origins in every way imaginable and unimaginable, EA will still deserve to be burned away like cancer.

    I didn't mean to say it would be bad, just unoriginal. They've done that exact story pretty well already (Kanan, Ahsoka,.... not Ezra, Ezra can fuck off).

    Yeah, on fucking stupid (fite me) cartoon series.

    Give me dark souls Star Wars flavor and I'll be a happy man.

    I won't argue that this scene was good. I will argue that that scene alone can make up for not one, but at least two stupid cartoon series. You can't defend a series on one scene, or even a movie on one scene.

    I really never got into the Clone Wars/Rebels Ashoka-is-our-lord-and-savior fad. It's ugly animation, horrible plots and forgettable or outright annoying characters as well as a butchering of canon.

    Rebels is a hot mess that tries to bring in elements from the EU without really doing the EU justice.

    Thrawn gets beaten by Space Whales.

    Fricking Space Whales..

    To be fair, Clone Wars was pretty decent. It wasn't the best thing ever by any means, but it was competently put together and interesting to watch. It might have had to do with my lack of exposure to the EU though, so who knows.

    That said, I've only seen a few episodes of Rebels, but what I've seen was pretty trash-tier.

    If Avellone worked on it, I'm definitely giving it a shot. Also, anyone wanting all the companies under EA's banner to fail unilaterally has lost the plot, imo. If EA believes that taking different business strategies will help them to maximize their profits, they will take those strategies. As will nearly every other company in existence. Any improvement should be lauded for what it is.

    EA failing would take an enormous number of very good franchises down with them.

    What good franchises do you speak of? Battlefield maybe. BioWare stuff has been dead for years, same with NFS. Titanfall? Fine.

    More accurate to say that EA owns lots of franchises that used to be good. If EA went down, others would buy up the IPs and maybe do something not horrible with them.

    There are tons of really great moments and arcs across both the series. This is just one of my personal tippy top highest points. Many poor moments as well, but they were largely few and far between.

    As stories go, Clone Wars is an A- on the whole. Rebels is a B-.

    But you know, opinions.

    Both series have pretty shitty early seasons. They get much, much better.
