Although... if a AAA title from the early 90's cost £60 on cartridge format, that would be more than £100 in today's money.

Thanks, Obama!

Wasn't Pit Fighter monstrously expensive? Or am I simply misremembering its general monstrousness?

60 quid for the regular version of the game. Holy shit. Still, they've said all DLC will be free.

Beta downloading now...

I don't really see that being a problem. The perks aren't game changingly powerful, and the sort of people to whom that would make difference (and would shell out for the points) would likely have handed my arse to me anyway.

More Pay-To-Win talk. This is all stuff that traditionally unlocked for free in paid-for multiplayer games.

I wouldn't call a 100% damage reduction card when fully upgraded not 'world changingly powerful'.

There are going to be people on the map who are invincible for a period of time, and people who aren't, and the people who want that can spend money to get it. And that's just one card.

Free-to-play pay-to-win mechanics in a full price AAA game.

You can still unlock those cards, it just takes longer.

Quick question on Battlefront II :)

Is it a stand alone game or online or both?

Was thinking of getting it as my son loves Star Wars, having seen some trailers you can play as Darth Maul and the Emperor.

He is a bit young to play but will love watching and I'm hoping he will get into playing a bit

Don't want an full online game where I keep getting my arse kicked by 15 years olds though :DD

Both.

It's a PEGI 16, though.

Yes, apparently when she was 16. She played Peggy in Hi-De-Hi.

Sure, I get why. I just never imagined what she might look like when she was younger.

Is she even still alive?

[edit] She is.

How in all of the world did you recognise her there? I’ve been looking at it for a few minutes now and just can’t see that it’s her!

I remember her doing 'Celebrity Swears' on The Word.

She just appeared onscreen for about two seconds and said 'Fuck'.

It was a good feature.

Apparently, you have to unlock the ability to play as Luke and Vader, and it takes 40 hours-ish to unlock just 1. Or you can just pay real money, of course.

T'internet is going fucking apeshit.

Actually, you can't. Well, not directly - Luke and Vadar can only be bought for in-game money, which you can't buy for real money (at least, not yet).

But you can buy loot crates for real money, and you can sell what's in them for in-game money.

Also, 40 hours is a guess based on the beta, as the game's not out until midnight.

And yes, the Internet is going apeshit. EA made the most down-voted reddit comment of all time.
