What we actually need is a Jedi Knight. Make a real sabreswinger with Academy gameplay and fancy graphics. The story wouldn't actually matter much.

Electronic Farts is still on my do not buy list, and will probably forever be on it...

...unless they release their games on GOG.
Why would a release platform change your opinion on whether the company is any good? I don't like DRM and Origin / EA app is hot trash however EA is still a despicable company regardless.

Because the way GOG works wouldn't allow them to get away with all of the anticonsumer and GaaS bullshit they always pull.

The only EA and Ubisoft games worth buying, IMO, are the ones that are on GOG.

For a brief moment, part of me wanted a new Jedi Knight game. Then, I realized what recent revivals and remakes usually include and entail.
I'd be okay w/ Jan Ors being the main character, though just not a force sensitive. Oh, wait, that entire story and character set was removed from canon.

EA/Disney Star Wars announcements are just invitations to complain for every long-time and once- fan of the franchise; or of EA's long-past great games.

On a positive note: a vehicle-centric Star Wars game would be pretty great. Mech and Vehicle combat in the Star Wars setting could be fun. It hit me late that Respawn has a history with that.

I honestly want a solid sequel to Tie Fighter. I have too many memories with that game.
Squadrons was a decent game but too short I felt and not in depth (mission felt simplistic).
This.

Squadrons was more like... they made an awesome engine, but didnt have the time/funding to do more than basic 5v5 and a simple story


I need MORE.

All i need to be happy before i die, is a coop capable campaign (the entire, full campaign not a mini one like some games)

EA & Bioware have stated this year SWTOR has no plans of shut down and makes them money so you can hope just realize it's highly unlikey
Seriously, the graphics is so outdated, characters are too cartoonish and the mindless grinding is ridiculous. Time for those kind of MMOs to shut down and bring something more interesting to the market.

Can we have a non-souls like first person shooter, with no multiplayer crap. I don't want to just play with a lightsaber. Fallen order just didn't excite me at all. How long since Jedi Knight was released now?

It never ceases to amaze me how often companies make announcements that state much but actually say nothing at all.

Dirtyferret and Spectrum Cable are joining forces to continue delivering all-new, world-class internet experiences set within the beloved dirtyferret household. Spectrum Cable is the leading the provider of high speed internet access for work production, top tier entertainment, and intensive gaming. Dirtyferret has an award winning history of providing resources within his household, will oversee this effort.

Sounds so much better than just saying "I paid my f-ing cable bill because Spectrum has a monopoly in the area and is the only game in town"
