Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer recreated in Battlefront 2 2005

Here is something pretty awesome. Youtuber Angry Ewok had to much time on his hands, and decided to recreat the complease Star Wars: Battlefront 2 trailer showcased at EA play last week. Check it out: As as stated in the beginning, this is both crazily awesome, and sad at the same time. I haven’t played BF2 for some time, and I don’t remember it looking this… bad. Part of that is because I am  remembering the parts of the new Battlefront 2 and how they’re similar, and thereby comparing them in my mind even if I  don’t realize it… And I am comparing these graphics to the graphics of the new game, and the gap is so wide it makes these seem even worse. But that is just me rambling. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is slated for release on November 17 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with a $59.99 price tag….

Why Battlefront 2 Needs an eSports Element

Star Wars-themed computer games have such a hugely dedicated following simply because the games enable every fan to explore and live in their own part of the Star Wars universe. In many ways, this is the holy grail of a good Star Wars game, with titles like Star Wars: Rebellion and the original Star Wars Battlefront game allowing gamers to indulge their fantasies of running the Galactic Empire or helping the Rebel Alliance to become rulers of the galaxy. “Star Wars: Commander” by  (CC BY 2.0) This formula has been successful for handing Star Wars games an enduring popularity, and has even helped to keep them relevant and popular during the dark days of the prequels (days which still cause fans to shudder when looking back at some of the storylines and acting!) but now gaming is changing, and perhaps it is finally time for Star Wars games to change with the…

The important thing is everything can…

The recent DICE games of Battlefield and Battlefront have seen a growth in sales over time where games like Call of Duty are on the decline in sales. The Call of Duty franchise was a massive hit but it may have already peaked. This article from Gamer Headquarters talks about how Battlefront 2 could beat Call of Duty when it comes to sales.

Battlefront II Will Be a Better Game but Possible Financial Disappointment

If you’re like the rest of us, you might be anxiously awaiting Battlefront II. The thing is, we don’t really know very much about it. That’s how they generally do these games. Anything Star Wars, especially since the new films have started production, is kept under lock and key for the most part, until it’s ready for release. That leaves a lot of open doors for speculation and Mathew Falvai of a90skid.com has some theories on what will happen with Battlefront II. In this post, he describes why he thinks it will be a better game but an overall financial disappointment. “My prediction is that gamers will do what they traditionally do and judge a game based on their last experience. The new Battlefront promises more robust single-player content, and an actual campaign, fixing two of the major issues. With the foundation of a jaw-droppingly beautiful engine and reusable assets already in place, DICE…
