    From what I understand it doesn't even matter. If you've unlocked Vader and there's already someone in your lobby playing Vader you won't be able to play him until someone kills him - which is nearly impossible.

    There's a YouTube video from a guy who bought tons of loot boxes and unlocked every hero/villain in the game. He estimates that he will be virtually unstoppable in the game for months, probably even longer.

    EA has always been horrible, so we probably wont see that. Plus they just dropped the cost of those characters by 75%.

    Edit: I’m not sure why I care. I wasn’t going to buy it and had no interest. I guess I like seeing EA feel pain. Horrible company.
    I was going to buy it but all this stuff is making me hold off. Maybe when the price drops when TLJ is released. Problem is the single-player campaign is Canon and likely to be relevant to the saga trilogies. I might just watch the cut scenes when Alex posts them on his Star Wars Explained channel.

    It only took me five and a half years to earn enough credits to post.

    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    Attended a haunted pinball tournament this weekend. A haunted house, with each room themed around a different machine. Really a neat idea.

    One of the machines was brand new on the market and to our knowledge is the only one in the state of Colorado (and was the one I was actually seeking out to play, then I found the tournament.)

    (And yes, I'm aware it's a little late in the year for haunted houses, but it worked, so eh.)

    That is highly disappointing. I had high hopes for the game. No more.

    Do they own Ubisoft?
