Technically, they did, but I doubt it was intentional. 

 

except they didn't and that whole thing was clickbait garbage

This was really an auteur film that is more a Rian Johnson project than even a Star Wars movie tbh.

Glad you like her. :D

Here's her preset if you (or anyone else) want to play as her. There's a handful of mods you'll need to get her to look the same though, all of them except the textures (SG Female Textures) should be listed in the preset.

Took a stab at making a certain someone while working on some Skyrim characters. (Does this technically count as Wulfgard fanart? :P )

I'm starting to see a pattern develop in this thread.

I expect we'll see microtransactions return in a month or so in more copacetic form. Gonna guess they'll remove the randomized lootbox element and go back to the traditional straight-up buy2win model.

Eeeeeeeeeh I'm gonna guess this is more because of the whole 'gambling' thing than out of any actual sudden desire to be more pro-consumer. That's a can of worms that could actually have affected their bottom line more than pulling the mictrotransactions, Especially if gaming commissions here in the US started sniffing around.

If you buy it, you're endorsing their business practices. Doesn't matter if you wait for a sale, doesn't matter how loudly you complain about it. A purchase = endorsement. Period.
 
 
EA could not give less of a damn about all this negative press because the game is still selling. Everyone made a big deal about that Reddit post that got downvoted, but how much you wanna bet that at least half of the what...600,000 people who downvoted it still bought the game?

I get the feeling that nobody in EA management particularly likes or plays games.

 

This is actually true.

 

If you look at all the big names in EA upper management, they're suits. The current chairman used to work for Johnson & Johnson and Clorox, and the former CEO used to run Sara Lee and worked as the marketing director for Haagen-Dazs.

 

None of them have any particular interest in games beyond them being just another product to produce and sell.

 

but no shut up guys EA is totally actually good now and CD Projekt is the new bad guy
