I will probably pick it up later.

Fighting games tend to get discounted heavily pretty quick.

Does anyone want a WII U or 3DS code for MewTwo? I got rid of SSMB, so they are up for the taking. Toss me a PM.

WII U Gone.

Done.

Now that my new laptop is up and running I think I want to get a game for it. Any suggestions for something that'll not be significantly diminished playing with a trackpad? Thinking maybe dreamfall chapters, walking dead, or Witcher 2 (never played the first, but it's pretty dated now).

Battlefront may be the second game I actually pay full price for on the X1. The first one was NHL 15.

The Mortal Kombat thing really makes me angry. I'm getting really sick of AAA titles having a buy to play element in them. If your charging $70 for a game it better be full, not a half game where you need to spend more just to get the full game.

Neverwinter is a complete F2P game and there is no need to spend a dime in it to access everything. I don't even know if I would buy MK if it was 75% off at this rate.

A little disappointed their is no campaign mode, but I feel like it will probably be a destiny style campaign so that might make it a little more bearable.

Would have been nice to see some actual gameplay and not just a CGI trailer. This will probably be one of those rare games I buy on day 1.

People in attendance at the Star Wars convention got to experience 5 minutes of gameplay at the EA Experience.

I am sure we will see some of that by the end of the weekend.

Battlefront appears to be best use of FrostBite 2 so far. Damn son.

Eh still an in-game render. Frostbite has pretty iconic ray tracing and occlusion effects.

Yeah will be interesting to see actual gameplay.

Hard to trust tweets but a lot of people at the event said the gameplay action actually looked just as good.

I have no idea what Fractured Space is like, but apparently if you play it this weekend (via Steam), you get to keep it.

Goodness. I don't know if I can bring myself to pay $80 for a brand new game, especially with how things are now... half finished, half baked games they want you to just pay more and more for. A multiplayer only game where the servers will probably be busted for weeks after launch. It'll be on sale by Christmas anyway.

I just hate how they sell things nowadays. 3 different versions and on disc DLC, in game purchasable unlocks and mmo grind mechanics. EA will take a cool game engine and milk the hell out of it, no thanks, I can't support cash grabs.
