  1. I'm not sure what you've all been up to, but I've been playing a great deal of "Prey 2017" as of late.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/480490/Prey/

    It can get pretty tense and difficult, but I love that this game has me having to think things through and keep me on my toes at all times. You can never know if a mimic snuck into the room you were just at, and it could very well jump you before you realize what's going on.

    I put up the reveal trailer since it seems a bit better at showing the game than the launch one.

      Ive seen some stuff on that. But as far as what ive been doing, really not much. My wifi still isn't fixed yet but it will be very soon. So ive been playing alot of skyrim assassins creed and fallout. Butvi did get a new phone and thats how im talking to you all right now.

  2. Can someone explain to me how a clone trooper would be using a DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle? Did the people, proposing this loadout, get confused between the DLT-19 and DC-15? The DLT-19 wasn't even made until during the ruling of the Empire.

      @Abekrie Battlefront (the new one) doesn't have the prequel units in the game, so I guess they just took the next best thing which is the DLT-19.

      @Commander Kortus I know I'm being rough on the topic, but I'd say that the loadout should have the necessary tools to represent the theme or ditched completely if nothing can be done for it.

  3. Thank you, @RogueRebel I'll be adding those in a post update sometime soon. For those who don't know yet, I'm making this "What We Know" as one of the source providers for my eight page paper going over the development of the Battlefront franchise by DICE. Any and all provided sourcing on decisions made for the development of Battlefront 2 EA would help a lot in trying to form a picture of it.
  4. Any way we could try getting that meme competition over at the forums? Should help reduce clutter on the feed.

    Also, just came back from watching the last portion of today's live stream that @KnightRobby had going on.

    I get some good memories of the live streams had years ago. I'll probably start up the "StarWarsHQ's Server" again if I get all my work done this week with time to spare.

      I CANT BELIEVE I MISSED THEIR STREAM, I'LL HAVE TO WATCH THE ARCHIVED ONE

       

  5. Saints Row 2 free on gog.com (Good Old Games) until the 22nd.

    Grab it while it's hot, lads.

  6. Slight hiatus as of this post's week due to college stuff which may or may not be an eight page paper to type. Feel free to input anything yet to be presented in the comments below, and I will review over everything for their additions into the original post. Cheers
  7. This is absolutely brilliant. Great job to BTL Y-Wing for making this as I had a good laugh. Worth sharing around.

      Don't mess with General Veers. He will wreck your stuff.

      He always was my favorite Imperial officer. Would like to see him return in a Battlefront game or in a new novel or something.

      Definitely a possibility @ZakoBattledroid

  8. Bringing back an old style of news compilation that I did with DICE's first Battlefront game (Even got the same poll recreated for this one) Of course, the thread content will expand as more news show up so I would hold off on the poll unless you really feel strongly enough to think so before reading everything. Origin Store Page Details Some information here regarding the versions presented for Star Wars Battlefront 2 EA. Click to expand to read the details as it hints as to how this game will be set up and what will be in it as well. First off, we can see that there's going to be some unlockable weaponry here (Obviously) seen from across the Star Wars films with one of these being notable from Rebels. Some links here to save you guys the trouble in searching. http://starwarsrebels.wikia.com/wiki/Blurrg-1120_Holdout_Blaster http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/FWMB-10_repeating_blaster http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/CR-2_heavy_blaster_pistol http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/A280-CFE_blaster Season Pass Ditched The differences in the two versions are mostly early unlocks and cosmetics most likely because of a decision made to ditch the season pass trend EA and DICE love to do so much and divide the communities in all their games with such a system. We have yet to hear on how they will actually incorporate any future DLC so caution is advised to avoid over-exuberance to such good news. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/170117-Season-Pass-for-Star-Wars-Battlefront-II-May-be-No-More#&gid=gallery_7220&pid=1 "We decided on that, and it's one of those difficult decisions because it has so many implications all around," Diemer said. "When we looked at the way Battlefront had evolved over its lifetime, with the DLC and everything, we decided, 'You know what? For this type of game, season passes are not the best thing. We need to [take it apart] and come up with something better." "We don't want to segment our community," he added, saying that, while he can't dive into the specifics, the team has "something different in mind that will allow you to play longer, be [more] invested in the game without having a fragmented community." EA reached out afterwards, saying: "While we're not ready to confirm any live service plans just yet, what we can say is this we heard the feedback from our Battlefront community loud and clear. We know they want more depth, more progression, and more content. So we're focused on delivering that in every dimension of Star Wars Battlefront II. We'll have more to share about our plans soon. Star Wars Battlefront 2 EA Website https://www.ea.com/games/starwars/battlefront/battlefront-2 Website main points covered by Joe in his video alongside the trailer (Obviously) and news on season pass removal. Reveal Trailer Hightlights I'm getting the hint that all those droid mentions, of the CIS being playable, were directed for me lol. It's the only news that really matters Pre-Order and Elite Trooper Edition Visual Pictures More Information will be added over time with updates
  9. I'm going to set us up another "What we know" as I did back in April of 2015 for Battlefront EA.

    https://www.starwarshq.com/forums/topic/913-what-we-know-star-wars-battlefront-2015/

    Should be fun getting things organized again in my free time.

      Always good to be informed rather than hype something up.

  10. Went onto the Star Wars Battlefront 2 EA website and did some digging in order to scoop out the artwork on display.

  11. I'm getting a notification about you mentioning me in a status update, but it appears the post is gone.

    So I'm quite curious. Why would it be missing right now?

      A bit disconcerting for censoring without given reasoning if what I'm hearing is correct.

      We still do have that SWHQ Discord chat server of sort we can keep using though. It's been inactive as of late, but I'm sure we can kick things back into action eventually. Shouldn't be too much longer for screen sharing and video chat on Discord.

      Making it look good of course

      I would want to do our own server where we could have the freedom to do what we want without relying on admins that arent really active.

    4. Abekrie

      Abekrie

      Easy said and done. Would be nice to see an official SWHQ Discord server helped run by the community.

  12. Since I see that Robby and Ryan are too busy sorting out submissions to their contest to post this up, I'll do just that. Here you all go: the animated live stream and video announcing their little "win a trip" contest.

    @54:45

    *spits out imaginary water* Moderator? Moderator! Where?

    If it wasn't for my college schedule, I'd have surely submitted a video of my own (Or simply put money in to attend) to hang out with you two in Orlando celebrating Star Wars. The person who does win this will have quite a fun time.

      @AbekrieAh k, lol.  I guess ive got kinda caught up in the whole moderator thing/meme/trend or whatever ya want to call it.  Would be nice I guess to see the website at the best it can, even if we dont have many actives anymore -_-

    3. Abekrie

      Abekrie

      @Mikayahu As funny as it may seem to be as a persistence on my part, I'm quite serious in that the website needs moderation support. We've had a good few examples in the past where a matter could only be resolved by Robby and Ryan only for them to not be here.

    4. Mikayahu

      Mikayahu

      Yep.  Its sort of a case of a "joking but serious matter" I guess you could call it.

  13. Seems the moderator over in the Yooka-Laylee discussion board is more than just a little trigger happy in his pursuit to qualm the chaos he's sown with mass bans and deletions on people just asking for refunds. It's almost as if he's surprised or is unwilling to take responsibility for why the discussion board is as bad as it is now.

    Even I got hit by this guy in trying to calm people down a bit.

    ThanksJonno4.png

    Thank you, Jonno. You sure showed everyone your professionalism in this entire situation.

  14. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS coming out in Steam tomorrow, Yooka-Laylee arriving in less than three weeks, and Path of Exile getting a major update that's going to add six acts to the game in a few months (For free! Like they always do).

    Some good gaming to be had once I get my college homework done in due time.

      Im actually downloading Path Of Exile right now. It looks fun.

    2. Abekrie

      Abekrie

      @Peirce It really is. I've put 603 hours into it thus far so hit me up if you want some advice or help in general. I also have a small group running that you can join up (Just me and some friends). It's always fun to play in parties or alone if that's what you like.

  15.  

    Signed out of starwarshq.com on my desktop's Chrome browser to sign back in. Odd behaviors noted.

    • Signing out had the website redirecting me to openworldgames.com with a long connection time.
    • openworldgames.com no longer seems to exist so I got an error page after waiting for the connection to load.
    • Signing in had long connection, again, to redirect me to the wrong website. Error page again.
    • Visiting starwarshq.com shows that I was signed in anyways.

    Spoiler: Large picture example of error page

    Attempted to sign onto starwarshq.com from Android Galaxy S4 device on Chrome browser.

    • Symptoms noted exactly to desktop's behavior.

    Attempted to sign onto starwarshq.com from iPod Touch on Google browser.

    • Extremely long loading time that ends up nowhere and remains on the login page.
    • Opening up starwarshq.com via URL shows me signed into the website.

    Attempted to sign onto starwarshq.com from iPod Touch on Safari browser.

    • openworldgames.com shows up on the URL while it attempts to sign me in.
    • Finally ends up with "Safari could not open the page because the server stopped responding."
    • Opening starwarshq.com afterwards shows me signed into the website.

    Conclusion: I believe the system redirecting users to a website that no longer exists is something that should be looked into, @ComposerRyan. It could potentially solve the password issue that is being had by others.

      I actually noticed the same thing going on at my end! Weird...

      @TheDarkShadow8500 It was unusual to me since StarWarsHQ.com was here well before the creation of OpenWorldGames.com last I recall. Perhaps it was in one of their major updates that they tried bonding the two sites in a way since they were both the same in purpose.

    4. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      @Abekrie I know what you mean, I wonder if it will be fixed and if this does get fixed, I wonder how many other bugs or issues will still be lurking?
