No DVR or pause live TV no deal.  Maybe down the road.  I read it had a lot of issues yesterday?

So what are "tickets"? I just don't remember encountering the term during the public beta. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention?  retard

AFAIK it's the "score" in game.  Your tickets are the score for your team as you play.

For anyone interested, but waiting for a sale, you have it.  $35 for PS4 on Amazon.  They did offer same price on XB1, but ran out. 

Word is that the Black Friday sales should have it again for the same.

Well, aren't you in luck then.  $30 for either on Walmart.com and XB1 matched at Amazon.

What I'd be interested in is observations on whether players are really working together as teams or squads? Or is everyone running around like a chicken with their head cut off, no rhyme or reason? It was the latter for me mostly during the open beta, but certainly maybe that was just people getting used to the game and experimenting or what not.

And are there actual battles or is everyone snipe-shot and blown up barely beyond their spawn points all the time? Which again was a lot of my experience but maybe as players get used to the game, there's more variety... and hope.  icon_smile

I've had pretty good success with randoms in a squad working together and most games I can get into a full squad of 5 no problems.  The one thing I don't see much of is support dropping ammo.  I play as a medic a lot and am constantly dropping healing.  Support rarely drop ammo from my experience.

I also second Caine's observation that most groups will cap and move to next without holding.  Combat is definitely fluid across maps, at least in Conquest mode.

This game and the maps are absolutely bonkers. They did such a good job with this wow. I love the old school battlefield music that plays in menus too.

Even the city maps are insane.  Amiens is awesome with tons of nooks and crannies. I've never enjoyed a city map in the BF series and this one is great.

Yep very short tease.  Seems to heavily point towards prequel with Marston "running and not looking back" at the end.

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

I'm sure it will hit PC and Scorpio in 2017, right?

Of course.  They want to get that second-wave money of people double dipping like they did for GTA V.

Also, kind of sad that they called it Red Dead Redemption 2, instead of changing up the last name again.  Red Dead Retribution?  Red Dead Revenge?  Red Dead Resurrection?  Red Dead Risen?  Red Dead Ranchhand?  Red Dead Repoman?  Red Dead Rumbleinthebronx?  

Yes makes me think it's a sequel

Actually, I'm leaning towards prequel dealing with Dutch's gang

I'll take anything!  Loved the first game.  Really excited to see this world created on the current gen.

So far so good, I am glad this show is back and the animation is just off the charts this season.  Already some big hints at where the season will be headed.  I also like that it's on Saturday now so I can watch in the early morning on Disney XD app instead of waiting for DVR in evening.

Yes, and in -4 or so years, phones will be able to charge wirelessly.  Also, fast charging, which would also alleviate the problem to a lesser degree, does not exist on Apple phones.

Agree, but I guess they had to hold something back for the 7s next year.

I got to level 15 over the weekend and I still think this is the best battlefield yet.  Conquest feels like an actual large battle and the map in the Beta is amazing.  I wasn't even looking at this game and I will get it launch day now.

Played this for a little last night and rather enjoyed it.  The battlefield map spawning interface is pretty awesome.  Horses were cool, too!
Can you elucidate about the battlefield map spawning interface?

That's a fancy pants word I learned from an Iron Man comic book featuring Doctor Doom.  icon_smile

I don't recall seeing this implementation before in a battlefield game, but when you are in the spawn screen, you have a birds eye view of the whole battlefield and where your available spawn points are.  Maybe shows conflicts too?  You can select your spawn area and it zooms in from the aerial view right into your viewpoint.  It's a more dynamic implementation of the standard spawn map you see in online shooters.  I thought it was cool.
Yes, I do believe that you can see the battles. You can also see the real time status of each capture point and all of your allies, so you can get an idea of whats going on and choose your spawn point better. I originally had no intention of getting this but after playing for a while last night, my interest has grown..


I am in that same boat.  Definitely thinking I will be getting this now.

I still can't decide if I want to get this game on PC.  I really love exploration and discovery in games, but I'm kind of burned out on general survival mechanics that it sounds like make up the majority of this game.  

I know I could just wait until it's cheaper, but this feels like a game that I'd want to be part of at the beginning if at all.

Can someone who's playing answer this - when they say "survival" mechanics does that mean you actually die and have to start over or something?  From Crusis's description it didn't sound like that at all, more of a crafting/mining thing than survival.

You have a life support system that needs power and a suit that decays over time.  You have to "refuel" them, but it's not really that big of a deal and it doesn't drain very fast imo.  You can die and a grave is spawned where you have to get back to it from your last save to retrieve your inventory.  I haven't found too much conflict though.  You have to go looking for trouble, at least early on.

Huh.  I still didn't know about the survival stuff, until I just read it in your post.  Yeah, that's a big strike against the game, if that's the case.  I have no interest in survival games.  Like you, I've tried them, and they're just not for me.

For me, my interest was all about the exploration.  In fact, the potential for that is so good, I'm hoping to hear that the survival stuff is very simple and just sprinkled into the game, because I'd like to enjoy it.

Not sure if you were paying attention to the trailers the last month, but more and more it screamed survival in space than explore in space.  Sorry collecting items and constantly meeting checklists in order to survive doesn't scream fun for me.  I'm willing to try it once it's below $15.  i think we'll see a big price drop soon.  It already has a limited audience based on the type of game.  I'd argue the hype enticed people to buy who wouldnt normally buy it.  

So.. you can't reload your gun in game?  has to be done in a menu?  Wow.

You have a multi-tool that is a gun and mining laser (potentially).  You only start out with a mining laser.  The combat gun mode allows you to reload at the press of a button until all rounds are used, then you have to go into the menu and refill.  So far there's not a lot of combat so it's no big deal.  The mining laser has a meter also and after you expend all the laser resource, you have to go into the menu.  It's not very frequent for either combat or mining.

You spend a ton of time in menus juggling inventory though.

Last nights episode  eek

That was awesome from beginning to end.  Some of the best dragon effects I've seen in any media ever.  And then that war battle, wow.

I might have said it before, but I have to wonder how George RR Martin feels these days.  On the one hand it must be incredibly exciting to see such awesome content come to life.  But on the other I can't imagine how bittersweet it is to have all these massive plot points and reveals he's held in his pocket for over 20 years being revealed by someone else.  I really thought that alone would have motivated him to get his ass in gear and finish, but at this point he might as well just take his time and finish the series in 2030 lol.


How weird is it going to be when the books continue to diverge from the show?
