but will enjoy watching it crash and burn like Titanfall or Destiny did.


Well Titanfall just kind of went into the whisper of the winds, as for Destiny. Well its kicking and screaming on its way out by the looks of things.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Ya, I hear nothing about Titanfall.... however, Destiny is a Love/Hate thing.  People love the game, or they hate it.  So, that game will live, albit smaller then probably intended, but with talk of Destiny 2, and the release of their 'expansion' I doubt it is going anywhere for a bit.

As for supporting EA.. that depends.  See, I bought SWBFDE, so I will see if those 'advantages' are real or not.  As for the rest... Sure, buying the game 'supports' the company, and everyone involved (Including DICE).  But see, I have bought games before, and not touched any DLC on them.  (Such as the Dynasty Warriors Series... which I love).  The real DLC purchases I have bought, were for Skyrim, and that is because I am a big ES fan... but also because I thought they did truly add to the game (less then I thought, but more then enough to justify the price).  I also get DLC off steam when I buy a game in a bundle.

IF I really enjoy Battlefront, and I feel the game itself is complete, and the DLC is just Map packs and the like... maybe I will buy them.  But more likly then not, I will buy the main game, and never make another purchase.

Microtransactions only work if people buy them, and well.. people buy them.  SWTOR originally, was a pretty good game, when it was a pay to play.  A tad simple, but I thought it had well done Voice Acting, a somewhat engaging story, and solid (if albit reused), gameplay.  I couldn't play anymore, so I left my account inactive, and it went FTP.  I played it for a grand total of an hour after it went FTP, and then uninstalled it.  I lost access to half my weapons, part of my crew, and my founder title.  This happens with most MMO's sadly.  WoW I think hasn't fallen into this pit yet... but most FTP MMO's are pay to win, with paywalls and the like.  ONly game it really didn't bother me in (at first), was DDO, because I started that game when it was FTP, and other then some quests and the like being cut off, and a few race/class options, the game was still solid and loads of fun to play.  It wasn't till I got to about level 12, and I was running out of quests to do for exp, that it started to drag...

I am now ranting, so sorry.  We will see how it goes... unless someone already has it, since I won't get mine till Friday.  Hopefully, it will be a fun time for a few months, before Pro's and hackers start ruining the fun.  I still wish MAG servers were still up...

Re: Out of Character Discussion
I preordered Battlefront after the beta, I was very enamored with it. Of course, I had not realized how frigging, absurdly good Fallout 4 would be. Damn, that game is almost every dream come true for me! 84 hours played so far (I took the week of its release off). I had 532 hours played on Skyrim so I shouldn't be surprised, really. Bethesda just makes my kind of game. :)

Re: Out of Character Discussion
I agree, Fallout 4 has been everything I wanted and more! As a rule I tend not to pre-order games, even if I'm excited for them, but given that thus far Bethesda has never disappointed me, as soon as FO4's pre-orders opened, I got mine in. Snagged a nice 23% discount on GMG too, which was nice. I'm 60 hours in and have loved every minute of it, and as I approach the conclusion of the main story, I'm already excited for my second playthrough and all the things I can do differently, from the first time around!

Also probably going to pre-order the season pass, come next month. Can't wait for the DLC to start dropping! I'm sure it'll add hundreds of hours to the game, added on top of the hours all the mods will bring.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
Good thing Vassaad has a high social skill, eh?... eh?... eh?

Also what a strange name, 'cheetos'. Over here we call them "juustonaksut", which (more or less) literally means "cheese snacks".

Re: Out of Character Discussion
The 'brand' for snacks here would be the company which makes them, Taffel. However they make everything from chips (with all hundred of the bloody flavors) and 'cheetos', to salted nuts, pretzels, popcorn and a few others; So you couldn't really say you were going to "get some Taffel", since that could mean any one of their products. There are of course other brands, but Taffel is the most popular and I think everyone here knows who they are, expecially since they're a home brand. Foreign equivalents are around too, but somewhat less popular, except for Pringles.

I have had Lay's chips once though, and they were ridiculous. Small, thin and over half of the bag was filled with air! Taste wasn't anything to write home about either, but then they were just some plain chips.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
I've added some numbers to each of your sheets. They have to do with the updated health/damage mechanic, that I've decided to add to the game, to make combat a little more interesting and defined. I'd like to give it a go and if it's horrible, fix/remove it as needed. For more information, I added a bit on it in the Game Guide, at the end of the Combat Rules section.

Re: Out of Character Discussion
I might not be able to post over the holiday week, I'm sure all y'all can understand. I'll try to get replies up tomorrow, though, since it's a slower day - But don't expect it with any kind of certainty!
